Alzheimer's Disease


Alzheimer’s disease is a degenerative brain disease which results from drastic damages to the cells in the brain and body. The disease is the most common cause of dementia- a continuous decline in a person’s ability to function independently. The disease destroys a person’s ability to think rationally, make proper judgments, and even carry out the most menial of tasks. This is a result of a loss of function between the neurons in the brain which in turn causes a cascade of malfunction with the rest of the body because the connection to the brain has been severed. 


Five direct causes: Gum health, anxiety, insomnia, lack of exercise, and lack of sunlight

P. gingivalis a bacteria associated with periodontal diseases has been linked to the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Once sub- gingival pockets are formed in the mouth the toxins begin to travel through the body and go to the brain causing the destruction of neuron communication. The toxic enzyme secreted by the bacteria, Gingipains, was found in the brains of patients with Alzheimer’s. The bacteria increase the production of amyloid beta ( type of protein associated with plaque)  which is a key factor in the formation of plaque that is a common symptom of Alzheimer’s. 

Beta-amyloid has been shown to increase in patients with higher anxiety levels.  

The development of anxiety disorders present symptoms of conditions such as insomnia which result in a person not being able to fall asleep for extended periods of time. A lack of sleep (less than 7 hours) has been shown to increase a person’s beta amyloid levels and other protein levels that affect the brain. 

An increased level of LDL cholesterol has been shown to increases the chances of developing the disease because there is a genetic mutation in the APOE gene, specifically APOE E4, which raises levels of circulation cholesterol (LDL) in the blood and the increase of LDL can go to the brain and cause severe damage. Therefore a lack of exercise can help increase a person’s chance of developing Alzheimer’s because they are not allowing the body to dispose of certain negatives the proper way. 

A lack of direct sunlight and Vitamin D also play a key role in the development of Alzheimer’s disease. The lack of sunlight can put the body’s natural circadian rhythm out of balance which can decrease the total amount of Vitamin D in the body as well.  


In order to treat Alzheimer’s a patient must prevent the main causes of the disease from developing. 

Before P.gingivalis develops it begins as gum disease which on its own is very treatable through a proper hygiene regiment, which includes brushing the teeth and tongue at least twice a day, getting annular dental visits to ensure a deep cleaning of the teeth and surrounding gums, flossing, and gargling of the mouth with substances such as salt water, hydrogen peroxide and baking soda, although it is 100% effective in killing the bad bacteria produced by the bacteria it has the tendency to eliminate some of the good bacteria found in the mouth. Eating foods that are high in Coenzyme Q10, collagen, catechins, Vitamin C, Beta Carotene, and Omega- 3s can help support the mouths microbiome while weakening the bad bacteria and to significantly eliminate the bad bacteria’s survival cutting out their major food sources such as sugar and refined carbohydrates can aid in the complete elimination of the bacteria from the oral cavity and prevent the bacteria from spreading. 

To reduce the amount of anxiety, insomnia, and LDL  in a person especially above the age of 65 methods such as remaining active, reduce/ eliminate alcohol, smoking, and caffeine intake, getting an appropriate amount of sleep;adequate and deep sleep can clear the body and brain of harmful toxins and increasing the amount of approlong deep sleeps can adi in the body’s natural plaque removing measures), meditate, improve overall diet, take deep breaths, using aromatherapy techniques, and  drinking chamomile tea can all aid in reducing the stressors of Alzheimer’s disease. There have been studies conducted showing that people with inappropriate sleeping behaviors are more prone to developing the disease, and should try to attain a more balanced and consistent sleep pattern. During sleep the cerebrospinal fluid acts as a cleaner in the body removing toxic chemicals including those associated with Alzheimer’s. Upon completion of the research the team discovered that with each wave of cerebral spinal fluid passing there is significant electric activity between the body’s neurons and this action is the exact opposite of what the disease does to the body’s neurons. The research team also discovered that amyloid decreases sleep and a decrease in sleep increases amyloid which has been linked to slowing the process of removing waste products from the body impacting the function of the cerebrospinal fluid. 

Incorporating  just 10 minutes of sunlight a day can increase a person’s vitamin D levels which can aid in protein production preventing the beta amyloid levels from rising significantly and producing harmful plaques. 

The addition of exercise from a young age can help significantly in reducing the likelihood of the disease development.  Approximately 30 minutes of physical and mentally stimulating activity a day as a child and as an adult can reduce the chances of developing Alzheimer’s as does living a clean low fat lifestyle.
