Alzheimers, Amyloidosis and amyloid plaque.

 

This is not medical advice I am posting this for informational and educational purposes.

If you have high amyloid levels in the body you may get lumps under your skin and the plaque can build up in organs and other tissues. Serrapeptase and a few other things will break up amyloid plaque.

I am posting what they believe about amyloid plaque. I believe amyloid plaque is a symptom and not the cause. I believe amyloid is used to protect the body from infection and toxins and if not addressed it will lead to amyloid build up. I also believe if others read the research they will most likely come to the same conclusion. Also if my theory is right natural helicase inhibitors , mugwort and other things that fight infection should also reduce amyloid plaque. I am going to look at the research and will post it in here if I am correct. I also believe amyloid is used when there is mitochondrial damage . It most likely will be found in cancer and I will post if I find that to be true in this information. If mitochondrial damage also causes amyloid plaque build up then I should be able to find research linking EMFs to amyloidoisis or Alhzheimers. Since all these things can be caused by gut dybiosis there should be a link there also. I have a theory I do not have time to prove but I think that amyloid could be found in many types of cancer because I believe the body is using amyloid plaques to try and isolate things from the body.

Amyloid has been linked to alzheimers and chronic illness. Infection, toxins like aluminum found in vaccines. Mercury still used in some vaccines can cause high amyloid levels. Also some farm chemicals found in our foods can cause it. Excess EMF exposure has been linked to amyloid plaque formation in the body. Amyloidosis is when amyloid plaques form throughout the body and can be caused by the same things. Infections especially Lyme disease can result in B-amyloid formations. Also keep in mind that the amyloid plaques do not only build up in the brain but in others areas of the body and can result in amyloidosis instead of Alzheimer’s. In my opinion amyloidosis and Alzheimers run hand and foot because they share so many commonalities. So what helps one should help the other. I could list hundreds of studies showing vaccines cause Alzheimer’s even those that do not contain aluminum and mercury. As I looked at the research the things that help Alzheimer’s also helps with amyloidosis and Non Alcohol Fatty Liver disease. I would not doubt if it helped with COPD also. I am starting to think high amyloid levels can be linked to many chronic diseases. I will most likely be updating this because seeing the links of amyloid in other chronic diseases make me curious of what other illnesses it can be linked to like diabetes, hormonal issues, thrombosis etc.

Lyme uses calcium to form cyst to protect itself. The body tries to farther isolate it from the body by building up a layer of amyloid on it. This can severely effect the health of our body and can result in amyloidosis. There are other infectious diseases that can cause this to occur. I remember I was looking at an image of Alzheimer’s and the amyloid plaque on the brain. As I was looking at it a friend sent a picture of the Lyme cyst on her brain. I was shocked they looked identical. Could Alzheimer’s be an infection?

Toxins in our food like BT Toxin , glufosinate, and glyphosate can cause a leaky blood brain barrier. Many drugs can also cause this especially fluoroquinolones. Leaky gut and gut dysbiosis can also lead to a leaky blood brain barrier. The can cause amyloid plaque to build up. So can metabolic issues that lead to acidosis or alkaloidosis.

Chromium increases metallothionein but we must be careful because chromium can increase insulin levels and we do not want to increase them too much. Zinc is also needed for metallothionein, I get my from unfiltered raw honey. What confuses me is they consider zinc an inert molecule that is not part of the redox system but it is heavily involved in redox.

They claim it can be genetic but many things they claim are genetic often times are not genetic but can be linked to habits passed down to us from family, our microbiome or environmental factors.

Leaky gut can permit more LPS to enter the blood stream resulting in high amyloid protein levels. Glyphosate, glufosinate and BT Toxins in GMOs can cause leaky gut. So can heavy metals like mecury and lead. Many antibiotics especially fluorquinolones can cause leaky gut so even if they reduces symptoms of Alzheimers they would cause changes that increase chance of getting Alzheimer’s.

Insulin-like Growth Factor protects the brain, helps build muscle. Now the bad high levels can feed cancer. It reduces insulin tolerance, and can be linked to cardiovascular disease. In my opinion this should only be increased if you are healing because it is a hormone needed when we are young and still growing. Vitamin D, Fish, milk and chicken increase IGF-1. Getting enough sleep and exercise increases IGF-1

I do not like the taste of Yarrow but I do know eating it has had noticeable effects. I noticed I had increased energy levels.

Has has been used for many illnesses even hemorrhoids. There are claims that when applied to wounds it stops bleeding. There are many species of Achillea but I am fimiliar with A. Millefolium. The others  chemical makeup is very similar.
