I lost my Grandmother to Alzheimers and now another relative of mine has just been diagnosed.
Anytime I come across information on how to prevent and possibly reverse this terrible disease I want to shout it from the mountain top.
I was jumping for joy when I found out that The Beauty Mineral, yes a mineral that will increase the beauty of your skin, your hair, and your nails, has actually been proven to help detox the heavy metal that is a known neurotoxin associated with Alzheimers.
Research has shown that all Alzheimer’s sufferers have high amounts of aluminum in the brain. Independent studies performed in Norway, the United Kingdom, France and Canada, show a direct correlation between the prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease and aluminum concentrations in drinking water. The Lancet, a highly respected British medical journal, showed the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease to be 50 percent greater where drinking water contained high levels of aluminum.
Yes, most drinking water or tap water is treated with a triple whammy of toxic ingredients.
Aluminum Sulfate is used to get rid of the murkiness, Chlorine to kill bacteria, and Flouride which does NOT create strong teeth or prevent dental cavaties like many have been lead to believe. Researcher Elizabeth Jeffery has found evidence that fluoride interferes with the body’s ability to get rid of aluminum.
You may be thinking, I drink bottled water, so I don’t have to worry. Think again.
Excess Aluminum is everywhere.
- Aluminum is in
Processed foods including non dairy creamers, pickles, table salt, processed cheese, and soft drinks in aluminum cans
Medications including aspirin
Shampoos, especially anti dandruff shampoos
The absolute highest concentrations of Aluminum are found in Anti-Perspirants and Antacids.
There is a lot you can do to avoid aluminum. I personally stopped using anti-perspirants years ago, threw out all my aluminum cookware, and stopped using foil to cook with. I also carefully read the labels of every product I purchase.
Aluminum toxicity is directly linked to Alzheimer’s disease, so wouldn’t it make sense that preventing aluminum toxicity in the first place would be a great way to prevent Alzheimers? What about removing Aluminum toxicity to improve Alzheimer symptoms?
Once Aluminum has accumulated in the body you must have enough Silicon, a trace mineral, also known as The Beauty Mineral, to help detox the excess aluminum out of the body.
Even PubMed acknowledges that Silicon, also known as Silica, or Silicic acid is an antidote for aluminum poisoning and as a detox agent for heavy metals.
How can you get more Silicon?
Horsetail is an excellent herbal source. I buy it from Bulkherbstore.com and add a teaspoon to my shakes. Horsetail also happens to be used as a treatment for kidney stones.
Foods high in Silcon include:
Unrefined Whole grains such as Rye, Barley, Oats and Wheat
You can also take a Silicon Supplement. Dr. David Williams, author and medical researcher of Alternatives Newsletter recommends JarroSil by Jarrow Formulas. You can get this at your local health food store. Sprouts grocery store has the best price.
Dr. Mercola recommends drinking 1 liter of Fiji water per day for 12 weeks to detox aluminum out of your body. One liter of Fiji water contains a whopping 83 mg of silica. (this may be the most cost effective way to get plenty of silicon)
Dr. Mercola also suggest getting plenty of organic sulfur in your diet because this will help the body produce glutathione, the master anti oxidant of the body, which helps detox aluminum and heavy metals out of the body. I personally take 1 – 2 teaspoons of organic sulfur every single day. I mix it in a glass thermos of alkaline water and take it with me and sip while driving. Sulfur also is one of the few things that can penetrate the blood brain barrier, which is crucial for helping detox aluminum out of the brain.
Sulfur also pulls the oxygen from the water you mix it with across the cell membrane. This causes the cells to open up and release not only heavy metals but bacteria and viruses. Sulfur also assist in cellular repair.
Sulfur can help reduce aches and pains and create more youthful skin.
The Ageless Beauty Report carries the highest quality Sulfur.

Adding Sulfur and Silicon to your daily regimen may be one of the most powerful ways to prevent and even reverse Alzheimers. It’s also great for slowing down the aging process.

The benefits of adequate amounts of silicon
• Skin elasticity improved by 55%
• Shallow wrinkles improved by up to 30%
• Skin improved over the entire body
• Nails and hair brittleness significantly improved
• Improves bone density
Silicon is also vital for bone health.
David Wolfe says forget calcium , it is magnesium and silicon that are vital for strong healthy bones. In fact bones will not form without adequate amounts of dietary silicon. Silicon also strengthen bones preventing osteoporosis and fractures from falling.
Getting enough Silicon, a trace mineral that happens to be known as The Beauty Mineral is very high on my my list Great Things to do for my Health and my Beauty.
After all if you don’t have your memory then nothing else really matters.
