Diabetes and the Brain
Having diabetes doubles your risk of Alzheimer’s.

Modern medicine has an illness-centred approach, not a wellness approach.
In a recent report in ‘Archives of Internal Medicine’ it showed post-menopausal women who were put on statin drugs to lower cholesterol had nearly 48% increased risk of developing diabetes, compared to those not given the drug.
Another new study shows babies born to women with gluten sensitivity have an increased risk of developing schizophrenia and other psychiatric disorders.
An extremely low carbohydrate diet of no more than 60 gr carbs a day, is ideal (this is the serving in a piece of fruit), and high fat is ideal.
