Acetyl-L-carnitine affects nerve growth factor, a protein influencing central & peripheral nerves.  It may prevent brain cell death  such as caused by amyloid beta peptide found in Alzheimer's brains.  It may help with cognition.  9/2006
Acetyl-L-carnitine (+ L-arginine) arginate mimics a protein called nerve growth factor that supports brain neurons  (in hippocampus) associated with emotion and (in forebrain) associated with cognition.
Supplements may help reverse brain deficits in both humans & animals. This combination was found to rescue brain neurons from amyloid beta induced toxicity (Alzheimer's brain cell death).  2/2006

Coconut oil - The Miracle (of Steve Newport's Alzheimer's breakthrough) Still Continues - - "MCT oil is derived from coconut oil...
MCT oil is digested differently than other fats. Instead of storing MCTs as fat, the liver converts them directly to ketone bodies & ketones nourish brain cells. 'Brain cells, specifically neurons, are very limited, more limited than other cells, in what kinds of fuel they can use to function & stay alive.  Normally, they require glucose (sugar), but they can also use ketone bodies,' Newport explains.  We know from earlier research that in Alzheimer’s disease neurons in certain areas of the brain are unable to take in glucose. 'If these cells had access to ketone bodies, they could potentially stay alive & continue to function,' Newport suggests...says, 'Since virgin coconut oil is 60% medium chain triglycerides, 1 could either take as a daily ration 14 teaspoons (70 grams) virgin coconut oil or 8 teaspoons (40 grams) of pure 100% MCT oil. This amount can be divided accordingly & taken with each meal."
"'An interesting comparison shows that a newborn breastfed baby getting 312 mg of MCTs from mother’s milk a day equals 47 grams of MCT for a 150 lb adult,' Newport adds, to help put the amount into perspective. To achieve higher & consistent levels of ketones, Newport suggests mixing 4 parts of MCT oil with 3 parts virgin coconut oil, which appears to be a good combination for fuelling neurons...
The coconut oil ensures support of the thyroid gland and offers antimicrobal properties, which help to kill off the viruses and bacteria that some researchers have associated with Alzheimer’s & Parkinson’ s diseases ...
Testimonial from Dr Jon J. Kabara,...'Saturated fatty acids are not a single family of fats but comprise of 3 subgroups: short (C2-C6), medium (C8-C12) & long (C14-C24) chain fatty acids. Lauric oils are found exclusively in the medium chain fats of coconut oil.”
Coconut oil "contains a high concentration of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs). MCTs are thought to improve brain metabolism and decrease beta-amyloid damage in the brain." Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database 4/12/2012
Coconut Oil - - "Dr. Bruce Fife, author of Stop Alzheimer’s Now, recommends VCO instead of MCT oil or MCT drugs such as Axona because the drugs become ineffective over time, wear off quickly, have side effects & cause free radical damage to the cells. And, MCT oil on its own is an adulterated, inferior form of coconut oil...When the MCTs in (natural/organic) virgin coconut oil are converted into ketones they act as a super fuel for the brain. This super fuel provides energy to the brain as well as stimulates healing & repair... Lauric acid is the most beneficial MCT of all, yet is absent in most MCT oil brands on the market or in significantly reduced amounts.  Go for the real thing & you won’t ever be disappointed down the road that clever marketing has somehow cost you your health or failed to produce the wellness results you seek." 
(Then one can buy/use the coconut water directly from a fresh coconut.  Nothing beats the real thing.

Folic acid seems to be a major player in the prevention/reversal of Alzheimer's. "Folates have already been proven to reduce birth defects, and research suggests that they are beneficial to warding off heart disease and strokes.
Although folates are abundant in foods (such as liver, kidneys, yeast, fruits (like bananas and oranges), leafy vegetables, whole-wheat bread, lima beans, eggs & milk), they are often destroyed by cooking or processing.
Because of their link to reducing birth defects, folates have been added to grain products sold in the U.S. since 1998...
Dutch scientists showed that adults who took 800 micrograms of folic acid daily had significant improved memory test scores, giving evidence that folates can slow cognitive decline.
Lentils are loaded with folate. In fact, no other unfortified food contains more of the key B vitamin, which helps lower heart disease & cancer risk and protects against certain birth defects. A cup of cooked lentils in a stew or soup gives you 90% of the daily folate that you need. What's more, lentils have lots of iron,(vegetable/incomplete) protein & fiber.
Peas contain 2 times more folate, a B vitamin that may help prevent heart disease, than is found in raw spinach. Bite for bite, peas rival spinach as a source of lutein, an antioxidant that may help protect against the eye disease macular degeneration. Peas also have more fiber than cooked broccoli & are an excellent source of vitamin C.
(Beware, raw uncooked live food is typically superior to cooked food.  Organic food is always a 1st choice.) Folate is a B vitamin & works best in concert with other B vitamins.

Scientists think huperzine A works by preventing the break down of acetylcholine,
a substance that is involved in memory and learning. It may also stimulate neurons.
Because Alzheimer's disease is associated with acetylcholine deficiency, huperzine A may offer treatment for disorder.
These acetylcholine-boosting properties may be of benefit to people with dementia as well. 
Huperzine A may also have the ability to enhance general memory and learning capacity."

Low-carb diets may impair memory and reaction time, while high-fat, low-carb diets improve attention

In animal studies, dietary omega-3s boost the rate of glucose uptake by brain cells, by raising brain levels of 2 essential glucose-transport proteins. (Pifferi F et al. 2005 and 2007) Diets rich in omega-3s probably cause human brain cells to absorb a greater proportion of the glucose carried by the brain's blood supply.

Williams, Dr. David The Only Way to Reverse Alzheimer's is by using niacinamide! 2/2009 newsletter
"The study of this treatment for Alzheimer's disease, headed by Dr. Kim Green at the University of California at Irvine, involved 4 months of Alzheimer's treatment with the human dose equivalent of 2,000 to 3,000 milligrams of niacinamide. 'Cognitively, they were cured,' said Dr. Green. 'The vitamin completely prevented cognitive decline associated with the disease, bringing them back to the level they’d be at if they didn’t have the pathology.'
Niacinamide also improved memory in mice without Alzheimer’s.
The late Dr. William Kaufman did extensive research on niacinamide in the 1930s.
Dr. Kaufman found that niacinamide moves in & out of the body quickly, so that smaller doses throughout the day are most effective, with 250 milligrams being the most the body could utilize at one time.
Dr. Kaufman and his wife took 250 milligrams of niacinamide every 3 waking hours (6 doses) for at least 55 years, believing, as a result of his studies, that it helps prevent many of the physical & mental problems associated with aging, including arthritis, fatigue, muscle strength, loss of balance, depression & cancer...
Based on Dr. Kaufman’s work, Dr. Williams estimates that Alzheimer’s patients 'would achieve the best (and safest) results if they took 250 mg every 1½ hours (a total of 12 doses)' for Alzheimer's treatment...
The toxic dose would be nearly a pound of niacinamide daily.  There has never been a death reported from niacinamide supplementation.  (Remember, with any drug &/or supplement safest method is to slowly increase and/or slowly decrease.  Also remember that any B vitamin works best in association with other B vitamins, so add a multi B vitamin to one's daily niacinamide intake.) 
Dr. Williams says, 'I personally utilized Dr. Kaufman’s protocols for several years and saw some amazing improvements; however, I saw even better responses after switching to a product without preservatives.'
1 source of preservative-free niacinamide is Freeda Vitamins, 800-777-3737. ."
(Niacin can do the same thing & is good in small portions in winter, as it can cause heat, flushing and tingling. 
Niacin can be better than niacinamide for dilating the blood vessels & helping circulation.)
"Arthritis symptoms also improve or disappear with niacinamide, says Dr. (Jonathan) Wright , but it's not a cure; the arthritis symptoms return if patients stop taking it."
11/2009 Williams' newsletter notes that niacinamide is "widely found in foods like, turkey, peanuts, chicken, veal, fish, salmon, swordfish, tuna & (for vegetarians) sunflower seeds."
Wine, especially red, in moderation may contribute to slowing down Alzheimer's.  Besides the nutrition (phenolic acid, flavonoids, anthocyanins, resveratrol), the alcohol, in moderation, contributes by stimulating the release of acetylcholine plus dilates blood vessels & increases HDL the good cholesterol. Gifford-Jones, Dr W  4/30-5/6/2007
Richard Wurtman, the Cecil H. Green Distinguished Professor Emeritus at MIT, who invented the nutrient mixture. 7/9/2012 - "Wurtman came up with a mixture of 3 naturally occurring dietary compounds: choline, uridine and the omega-3 fatty acid DHA. Choline can be found in meats, nuts and eggs, and omega-3 fatty acids are found in a variety of sources, including fish, eggs, flaxseed and meat from grass-fed animals. Uridine is produced by the liver & kidney & is present in some foods as a component of RNA. 
These nutrients are precursors to the lipid molecules that, along with specific proteins, make up brain-cell membranes, which form synapses. To be effective, all 3 precursors must be administered together.  Results of the clinical trial, conducted in Europe, appear in the July 10 online edition of the
Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease.
The new findings are encouraging because very few clinical trials have produced consistent improvement in Alzheimer’s patients, says Jeffrey Cummings, director of the Cleveland Clinic’s Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health."

Schwartz, Michad - - edited excerpt @ -

Research published in 1998-1999 in Nature Medicine & in 2006 in Nature Neuroscience, Schwartz’s team set the ground for a new notion that had never been tested or even suggested before: the brain needs the immune system for its maintenance. As the immune system weakens with age, the communication between the brain & immune system is compromised, accelerating dementia and Alzheimer’s. 
“Common wisdom for decades has been that the brain is completely isolated from the immune system,” Schwartz said. “What my team suggested in the 1998 & other follow-up studies was that the brain actually does need the help of immune cells to keep healthy & that the aging of the brain & Alzheimer’s is associated with this insufficient communication between the brain & immune system.” 
“If the immune system prematurely ages it causes loss in cognitive performance,” she added.
“The integrity of the immune system is needed for brain support, for supporting brain plasticity & repair.” 
Armed with this knowledge, the team set out to show that if communication between the immune system & brain is restored, “we can modify or change the course of Alzheimer’s disease.” 
Releasing the immune system’s ‘brakes’ - The key was to find a way to boost the immune system in a controlled way, to restore communication & thereby to help mobilize the relevant immune cell population from the periphery to the brain, Schwartz said.  The researchers did this by using an antibody that would release the immune system’s “brakes” so it could start once again communicating with the brain. The brakes within the immune system cells keep the immune system under control. With the aging process, the brakes tend to become over-controlling, suppressing the immune system too much, which causes ” an exhaustion of the immune system,” Schwartz explained. 
“Rather than trying to deal directly with the plaques or any waste accumulated in the brain in this disease, we believe that if we boost the immune system, we re-activate a mechanism of maintenance & repair,” she said. 
The antibody IBC has engineered, based on the new understanding, has the ability to neutralize “1 of the mechanisms that keeps the immune system under tight control,” Schwartz said.
“The key is to release such brakes modestly, at an optimal level,” in order to avoid the side effects of overactivation. 
In the lab, using animal models with Alzheimer’s disease & dementia, the treatment with such antibody showed a “robust improvement in cognition & a reduction of the pathology,” she said. The effect was noticed on all the multiple toxic compounds that were built up in the brain, “thus addressing the multi-factorial nature of the diseases and their heterogeneity among patients,” Schwartz explained

Aluminum - A (toxic) metal suspect is aluminum found in deodorant and cooking dishes.
1 theory is that Alzheimer's is caused by the protein clumps themselves. 
Another theory is that a tau protein forms tangles & kills neurons responsible for thought & memory. 
There is a scientific war as to the cause of Alzheimer's.
Concern is that remedy for a "theory" may cause harm. 8/6/2004

asperate or lithium orate (low dose supplements) may want to be considered (to remove aluminum).
"The aluminum felt to be a possible cause of Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is chelated by lithium so it can be more easily removed from the body...
One tablespoon of flaxseed oil daily along with 400 I.U. of vitamin E ensures that no (minimumal) lithium toxicity can develop." - 5/5/2004 James Howenstine, MD. editorial

"The cognition of patients with Alzheimer's disease grew worse when they took either Detrol or Ditropan. 
Both bladder drugs have what doctors call anti-cholinergic effects, which means they block the action of acetylcholine a neurotransmitter.  Nerve cells release neurotransmitters to send signals to neighboring cells. 
The anti-cholinergic medicines block some of these signals...
The brains of the patients who had taken anti-cholinergic drugs for 2 years or longer had more that twice the level of abnormal clumps of amyloid plaque & tangled bundles of fibers as those who had not taken the drugs or had taken them for a such time...

"Alzheimer’s...this is what we pray: Father, right now in the name of Jesus,
I curse Alzheimer’s: to begin with any trauma that may have brought it on, any generational curse, take care of that too. 
(In Jesus' name we) command the excess fluid in the brain to be drained & absorbed in the body just like if the drainage tube is there. 
Then (In Jesus' name we) command the spinal cord to produce the proper levels
of the fluid in the brain, not to cause too much, which causes like a squishy brain.
Then (In Jesus' name we) speak the right mind in the memory of the justice blessed & done in Jesus’ name.

, Joan - - "In the name of Jesus: I command all 125 trillion cells along with all the T-cells in my body to align electrically, magnetically & chemically to the perfect DNA & RNA that God created.
I curse any (demonic) prions and antigens in this body.
I command all the bad cells to be discarded (never to return & to be replaced with healthy cells). Thank You, Jesus! Amen."

, Herman regarding Lilly - - - "As I prayed the Lord gave me
discernment that the resistance was not physical or emotional; it was spiritual.
The enemy was attacking my wife Lillie in a spiritual battle.
I had to exercise discernment, which is a gift of the Spirit for all believers to discern the light from the darkness, and it can be exercised in faith.
I discerned that this 'resistance' spirit was a demonic attack against my wife.
Then the Lord said to enlarge my prayer, for He wanted to give healing not only for her but also for many others who are suffering from this disease.
Whenever the resistance would express itself, I would take the authority that Jesus gave to his disciples, the 'authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases.'”
(Luke 9:1).  When I took that authority I would pray & believe God for His power to break the power of the enemy.
I would not reason, argue or force Lillie in any way,
but simply stand in faith. Sometimes the resistance would be broken in a few minutes;
sometimes it would take an hour (or more)...A demonic attack and could be recognized
by discernment and overcome by taking authority in the name of Jesus....
The psychiatrist saw that I had learned how to overcome the resistance, and that my
method was valid, though in the medical and psychological field it had not been done.
I found however, that the attacks reoccurred almost daily. I had to discern &
exercise authority over them repeatedly. I did not understand why the enemy could not
be cast out permanently. However it did finally happen, for suddenly all the resistance
was gone completely. It was wonderful, but I did not understand why it happened.
Then I read something in Francis Frangipane’s book, referring to the powers of this
world noted in Ephesians 6:12, that Powers are not ‘cast out, they are
displaced in the spirit-realm by the fullness of the reign of Christ
in the church &
through the intercessory warfare of the saints in the region” (See The 3 Battlegrounds
in the Glossary under Powers.) That was the answer. I had been almost alone in my
battle formerly, but when I came to Frederick, Maryland a group of saints did spiritual
warfare in behalf of Lillie & that broke the power completely, by displacing the power
of resistance through the reign of Christ within the region."

[Kat Kerr mentors that we Messianic Christians are to daily "take power over all the (dark) power of the enemy".]

Pat Robertson Says Divorce Okay if Spouse has Alzheimer's 
COMMENTARY: Pat (Robertson) should know that Alzheimer's is curable by God. 
He is speaking from the soul & NOT the spirit, maybe like Peter did when he rebuked the Lord, & the Lord told the evil spirit in Peter to back off.
