Default Brain plaque

Is there any way to disolve beta-amyloid plaque in the brain?
If so, can you repair the damage at all?

Default Brain plaque

Curcumin an extract from tumeric will dissolve brain plaque. One needs to get it from a good company. After that the person will have to learn all over again depending on the severity. Sage oil will help to keep it from coming back or from getting worse the same as Aricept. I am not a doctor and this is not advice.

Nattokinase.

The beta-amyloid plaque deposits associated with Alzheimer's promote increased brain cell damage and death from oxidative stress (free radicals).


Enzymes in natto called nattokinase and pyrazine appear to dissolve the tiny fibers (fibrin) in blood clots … an effect believed largely responsible for correlations between regular natto consumption and a reduced risk of clot-related cardiovascular troubles.

Indeed, most natto research has focused on reducing blood pressure and preventing blood clots ... with positive findings on both fronts fueling sales of nattokinase supplements.

Until now, no one had tested whether nattokinase can dissolve amyloid fibrils, which are resistant to normal protein-digesting enzymes (proteases) the body could otherwise use to help clear the brain of plaque.

New lab results from Taiwan indicate that natto enzymes may degrade the amyloid protein fibrils that form part of the beta-amyloid plaque linked to Alzheimer’s disease (Hsu RL et al. 2009).
Here is more info on natto:

I would look into serrapeptase.

There was some form of bacteria that had amazing properties and could travel up the olfactory nerves in the nose to the brain, and eat up the placqes. Then the immune system would destroy the bacteria. These were amazing bacteria researched mostly in Russia. They were trying to get funding here but couldn't. I can't remember the name of those bacteria.

ALso coffee is supposed to help prevent alzheimers.

Magnesium citrate and Mg. malate are good for the brain.

Don't take statin drugs. See spacedoc.net

Low Vit D might even be a factor. Seems to affect everything else.

Selenium is a good antioxidant- also helps remove mercury in the brain.

Blueberries are good for memory and probably help alzheimers.

Dementia can be caused by flu shots because of inflammation causing constriction of capillaries. Dementia has been almost instantly stopped by adding anti-inflammatories to the brain. So avoid things like omega 6 oils - eat lots of veggies- (organic- the pesticides cause brain damage and poor function) .

Once damage is done to the brain cells, there is no way to reverse the damage.

First, you have to wonder what this "plaque" is, and how did it get there?

This "plaque" is the result of toxins, caused either by heavy metals such as mercury, that can cross the blood/brain barrier and remain deposited in the brain, or this plaque may be the result of mycotoxins, which are excreeted by fungi.

Vaccines can cause both of the above.

This is not true.

Brain cells are cells, and any cell can be repaired if given what it needs.

This is not true. Neurons need to have plentiful B vitamins, in mega dosages including B12, best by injection, weekly at least if there is neuron damage, but daily may be indicated in the early stages of trauma or disease.

Some brain cells do die but new ones grow, which is a recent discovery.
