How to diagnose and prevent Alzheimer's 10 years before you see symptoms
Did you know that every single disease associated with aging has one single cause? In fact, this singular cause also produces the very process of aging itself. That means all you have to do to cure your disease and slow the aging process is to stop this one single cause. And a recent study shows you how to do just that.
This particular study looked at Alzheimer's disease. But it applies to many other diseases, including Parkinson's, Huntington's, and other forms of dementia, as well.
In this study, the researchers used mice genetically manipulated to develop Alzheimer's disease. Then they measured the cellular energy production in the brains of the mice, and compared it to what they found with normal mice. What they found confirms what I have been saying for years.

This one step can strengthen aging muscles, boost your immune system, and even help you manage your weight.

Here's what they found: Before the mice showed any signs of Alzheimer's disease, their brain cells already were showing decreased energy production. This happened as early as three months of age. The mice also showed another classic manifestation of decreased cellular energy production — increased free radical damage. But that's not all.
As you may know, the brains of Alzheimer's patients show an increased level of the destructive protein beta amyloid. These researchers showed the connection between beta amyloid and decreased energy production. They found that the decreased energy production led to a very significant increase in beta amyloid. And this increase happened by only the ninth month of life.
So does this translate to humans? Absolutely! I've told you in the past that we can identify potential Alzheimer's disease up to 10 years before their first symptom appears. How? By using a special form of a PET scan that looks at the hippocampus, which is a critical part of the brain. The scan shows that the cells in the hippocampus show a decrease in energy production long before the symptoms appear. This is identical to what the researchers found in the mice.
This study offers concrete proof that the basic, underlying cause of Alzheimer's disease is decreased cellular energy production. And here's some really good news. There's an easy way to determine your cellular energy production. It's called Bio-Energy Testing.
Bio-Energy Testing is the testing process I developed and patented five years ago. It uses FDA approved medical analyzers to measure your cellular energy production. In addition, if the test determines that your energy production is not optimal, it also gives the doctor some very valuable information that he can use to improve it. You can get a current list of doctors who have this technology by going to the referral section at www.bioenergytesting.com.
If there are no clinics close to you that offer the test (the concept is still new to many doctors), it's worth traveling to the closest center for an evaluation. Here's why: This test will give you and your doctor the exact steps you need to take now to completely prevent Alzheimer's. It's your personal plan of action for stopping Alzheimer's before it happens.
