Curing Alzheimer’s

I’m sure you haven’t read it, but a while back we did a logical proof comparing schizophrenia and Alzheimer’s. In that post, we logically theorize that schizophrenia and Alzheimer’s are the same disease. And because some people have had remission from Schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s should be curable as well.  

Blind people don’t get schizophrenia. Not one recorded case. The question is why?

Why would people who can’t see be immune to this type of crazy? Because they are immune to vision issues. As we’ve mentioned in multiple other posts, mental strain causes refractive errors and is a symptom of brain entropy. Because the blind never see, they never have the able to see incorrectly, in a way that produces mental strain. Left untreated, this strain can lead to sleep problems, high blood pressure, diabetes, depression, and all sorts of other things including schizophrenia.

So if blind people don’t get schizophrenia, and schizophrenia is Alzheimer’s, could we cure Alzheimer’s with blindfolds? I don’t think it will be that simple, but essentially…yes. 

And why do I think that it will work?

Comas were used decades ago to cure schizophrenia. There were huge risks, but there was some success. Some people died. The rest got really fat.

Many Alzheimer’s patients go into comas before they die. 

People with Alzheimer’s have more mental strain than any other group of people. They are far enough from their equilibrium, that sleep does not help them any more. Stress has been building on them throughout their lives, and they likely have a wide variety of health issues that start in the mind. We’ve shown how high blood pressure, diabetes, kidney disease, and many others all start with the same sort of mental strain.

The biggest issue I see with inducing blindness [in some manner] as a cure, is that all the medication taken by the individual will skew results. The goal here is to essentially zero out the brain, and that is impossible with drugs in your system. So the less meds the better. 

Twenty-four hours without sight should be enough to gauge results. If you start seeing improvement, continue as needed. If you decide to try this with yourself or a family member, please remember that nothing we’re doing here can do any permanent damage to your eyes or brain. You still have a fully functional brain. You always have.

Check out this study. The shotgun approach actually worked for UCLA. You can read their notes on it. They have no idea why. They had their subjects diet and exercise, go to counseling, and worked on stress management. Here’s why it worked:

Because they finally started addressing some of the major issues at the root of the disease. As they lowered their stress levels and improved their diets, they began to finally move the needle on the patients brains. The major difference not mentioned in this study, keeping these patients from true equilibrium is their eyesight. It’s really just a symptom of brain distortion, but it makes it much harder to stay healthy if you try to operate without your barometer.

There’s never going to be a pill or vaccination to cure Alzheimer’s. The answer lies within you. 

Here’s your Alzheimer’s Protocol:

  1. Go outside
  2. Move
  3. Relax
  4. See better
  5. No meds
  6. Doubt your fears
  7. Do something new
  8. Talk to a counselor
  9. Blindfold yourself

Theoretical Cure for Cancer

We always hear about the miracle cure for someone’s great uncle with terminal cancer. Find your own cases. It’s happened. Can we explain these miracles? And if so, can we replicate them?

Are there cancer cells in my body right now?

Yes. At least kind of. You and I both have mutations in our body that could lead to cancer if they we’re not properly kept in check.

So if you already had cancer, what’s the difference between me and someone in a chemo bed?

My immune system. My body is still fighting the mutations to keep me healthy and sane. The populations of my healthy cells are growing way faster than any cancer, so it will be stopped before it starts. The problem comes when the healthy cells start dividing slower than the cancerous mutated cells.

We know that cancer is a genetic mutation. But not all genetic mutations cause cancer. In humans, many epigenetic factors cause these mutations. But what do they all have in common? Stress. Stress on the mind, stress on the body, whatever. You stress the mind and you stress the body, and vice versa. When you stress the human mind without proper recovery, it ages. And aging is what causes cancer. Aging is a genetic mutation that we control. And it starts in the brain. 

So if we’ve proven that aging starts in the brain. And we’ve shown how time accelerates on those who are stressed. We’ve identified many of the stresses, and properly categorized others as symptoms. We’ve found the absolute zero of the human brain and human body. And craziest of all things, if you’re alive, there is a chance.

So how do you start to reverse to negative trend. How do you start rebuilding and stop degrading?

The question is really, why do we eventually begin to lose the battle to these stupid cells? Aging. Your odds of getting cancer increase dramatically every decade you’re alive. Do they have to?

Age_Dist_New_Cases_Site_000_Sex_0.__v30012402.png

How do you fight cancer cells?

You grow. You change. You doubt your fears. You build a mind of perfect logic. Accept the fact that something you did caused this cancer. It wasn’t just bad luck.

Eating healthy and exercising are great, but they are not going to cure cancer. Think about the lady who’s on the other side of this, and has basically slowly starved herself to death. Her body essentially does not have the fuel to rebuild. She doesn’t need to eat healthy. She needs to eat.

You can always have surgery to remove cancer. Or chemo. or radiation. I’m not opposed to these treatments with on caveat: If you survive the treatment, you need to realize that something has to change or you’ll be back again for more.

How do you grow?

First, identify the stresses in your life. We have many symptoms that we call stresses, many stresses that we cause symptoms, and some symptoms that we don’t even know are related yet. Chances are great that there’s not much in the hospital that is helping you find your happy place.

  1. Get your soul right. I would only use this as a last ditch effort because we clearly haven’t proven it yet. If you’ve completely given up, this may be a place to start. But death is not outside the question.
  2. Get your mind right. What are you most afraid of? Dying? Then your soul isn’t right yet. [go back to number one] What flaw in your logic has gotten you to this point? You’re going to need to question your own logic to escape your loop. The best barometer for your sanity is the quality of your vision.
  3. Get your body right. Your NFL comeback may be outside the question. But a happy couple decades is not. There is a very tangled web of truths, lies, side effects, symptoms, and speculations that lead your doctors to your current set of diagnoses. You need to figure out the root of your own struggle. Don’t let your doctors confuse you with five-dollar words. Simplify. What ailment came first? When did you start to break down?

How do I get my body right? 

  1. Eat
  2. Get your blood pressure right
  3. Get off your psychiatric meds
  4. Handle your diabetes
  5. Sleep better
  6. No caffeine
  7. No alcohol
  8. No glasses
  9. No smoking
  10. Find your ground state

Remember: if you’re alive, there’s a chance.

Rethinking Dialysis

What are the symptoms of kidney disease?

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Sleep problems
  • Changes in how much you urinate
  • Decreased mental sharpness
  • Muscle twitches and cramps
  • Swelling of feet and ankles
  • Persistent itching
  • Chest pain, if fluid builds up around the lining of the heart
  • Shortness of breath, if fluid builds up in the lungs
  • High blood pressure (hypertension) that’s difficult to control

What are the biggest risk factors?

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease

But hold on, we’ve already tied all of those together.

What is kidney disease?

It’s when your body doesn’t remove waste properly.

Glomerular Filtration Rate [GFR] is a number that indicates kidney function. As you’d probably expect, it decreases over time. So even in healthy people, kidney function decreases as you get older. Well, that’s pretty awesome. Why? Because we already know the mechanism that effects aging, so now we just apply that to the kidneys.

This is pretty simple if you’ve been through all my other posts. If not, welcome to the science fiction world. We’ve shown how you control how your body perceives time. We’ve proven how aging begins in the brain. We’ve shown how stress causes aging and how it can wreak havoc over all different areas of your life. 

What you need to know is that kidney function slows predictably as you age. Not for everyone. So I’m right. The rest is speculation, but this is not: if your kidneys work at all, there is hope for you. It means that if you can settle your brain entropy, and find your ground state, you may be able to live a normal life after all.

Much like our article on diabetes, kidney function stalls with the human perception of time. Ok, it’s not really the kidney function that stalls. The kidneys have the ability to operate the same way they always have. But because the entropy of the subject has increased, their perception of time has made time longer. Think about it. If every day is three days, and every hour is three hours, you’re going to be exhausted. You’re going to lose weight. We know that high blood pressure starts in the brain. Your feet and muscles are going to be more sore the more your entropy increases. The longer your days will get. And the more you hurt, the longer your days will get. And the next day your kidneys will function a little worse, and you’ll be a little more tired.

Overtraining can also cause renal failure or damage. Why?

It’s exactly the same thing that’s happening to older people. It’s just a lot less gradual. Your kidneys are only used to pushing a certain amount of blood through every day. I’m sure that you can increase this number with proper training. But if you continue to overdue it, day after day, never allowing your body to catch up. Your kidneys will have to work harder and harder every workout. Each workout becomes slightly more dangerous if you’re not recovering properly.

So what is kidney failure? It’s when your kidneys fail to keep up with the waste your body produces. 

So what’s the solution? We’re making the wrong assumptions. The kidneys still have the ability to work fine. The body is in overdrive, so the kidneys cannot property filter more blood than they are used to.

So your kidneys can filter 120 to 150 quarts of blood each day. As your brain entropy increases, your blood pressure increases, and you’re going to start demanding more and more out of the same kidneys, with less and less time to recover. Eventually, they won’t be able to keep up. 

If that is true, shouldn’t a transplant not work at all?

A kidney transplant only lasts around fifteen years. I mean, that’s a long time, but why wouldn’t it last longer? Because you never stopped doing whatever ruined your kidneys in the first place.

And some transplants just don’t work very well.  In this article, they blame it on the donor kidney. I’m not so sure.

How can I say this? 

Because kidney damage is not irreversible in all people. There are millions of people that have gone in and gotten dialysis, and never come back. Their bodies and kidneys recover from the stress that they are putting them through, and they don’t need the outside assistance any more. And if some people’s kidneys can recover, yours can too.

Decrypting Diabetes [Part I]

What is diabetes?

High blood sugar. We test for it by monitoring blood sugar after a fasting period. If your blood sugar is over a certain amount, we call you diabetic.

Symptoms:

  • Increased thirst
  • Frequent urination
  • Extreme hunger
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Blurred vision
  • Slow-healing sores
  • Frequent infections, such as gums or skin infections and vaginal infections

Type 1 diabetes can develop at any age, though it often appears during childhood or adolescence. Type 2 diabetes, the more common type, can develop at any age, though it’s more common in people older than 40. 

But let’s think about this for a second with our other theories in mind. We’ve shown how your brain perceives time, and proven personal relativity. So we know that diabetes is a negative thing, and it’s closely correlated to high blood pressure and heart disease. So people with diabetes have more brain entropy and experience time more slowly, and age faster. But everyone generally eats about the same. If we’re talking meal times. The diabetic mind, seems to store blood sugar. Almost being designed for closer to a fasting environment.

How does blood sugar look over time?

blood-sugar-level-chart

Why would the body release sugars more slowly in people who experience time so slowly? It seems to be counter intuitive.

It’s the same reason that you say old people’s metabolisms slow down. When your body is under stress, time is dilating, and your hunger may be uncontrollable. Think about it, if every hour is an eternity, it’s really not that crazy to be eating that often. The truth is not that drastic, but that’s the idea.

Here’s what it is: blood sugar is external stress. We know that those individuals that age faster heal slower. And those that sunburn faster, recover slower. So naturally, if blood sugar is a stress, the further you are from your ground state, the longer it takes for your body to recover or, in this case, process it.

Why are diabetics so hungry and thirsty, and pee so often? 

That’s simple. They perceive time differently. Their time is shortened because of the stress on their bodies and their brains. Just imagine twice the amount of time passing in between meals for you. That’s what it feels like for them.

Can you explain why diabetics would lose weight? 

Yes. Here’s how that works: the diabetic continues their eating habits even though their perception of time has changed. Essentially, he or she could be experiencing three days of personal time in a single day, depending on their level of entropy. So if this is true, it all makes sense. The weight loss is explainable.

Why do old people develop it so often? 

The entropy of their brains is higher. They are furthest from their ground state. This is why they recover slower, and why they lose their vision.

Is it not just a disease for fat people? 

No. It’s way more complicated than that. Plenty of skinny people have it, and plenty of overweight and obese people don’t. I wish it was that simple. It’s just not.

So is it reversible? I think so. I need to dig in to case studies. I know that you can change your perception of time. I guess it depends on how open minded you are. We know the ground state is attainable. The question is ‘what are you willing to do to get there?’

Rethinking HIV

HIV is not an sexually-transmitted disease. It’s just not.

How did I come to this conclusion? The better question is how science came to the conclusion that it was.

What is HIV?

HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. It is the virus that can lead to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, or AIDS, if not treated. Unlike some other viruses, the human body can’t get rid of HIV completely, even with treatment. So once you get HIV, you have it for life.

HIV attacks the body’s immune system, specifically the CD4 cells (T cells), which help the immune system fight off infections. Untreated, HIV reduces the number of CD4 cells (T cells) in the body, making the person more likely to get other infections or infection-related cancers. Over time, HIV can destroy so many of these cells that the body can’t fight off infections and disease. These opportunistic infections or cancers take advantage of a very weak immune system and signal that the person has AIDS, the last stage of HIV infection. 

How do we diagnose it?

We look at your blood and test for antigens or antibodies. There are all sorts of tests, but my main takeaways: just because you tested negative doesn’t mean you don’t have HIV. Also just because you tested positive doesn’t mean that you have HIV.

Who gets HIV?

  • Prisoners. In 2010, over 20,000 prisoners had HIV.
  • Drug Addicts. People who inject drugs are 28 times more likely to get HIV. 
  • Heterosexual Females. The made up 19% of the new cases in 2016.
  • Gay males. Gay men account for 70% of the new infections in the US.
  • People in southern Africa. Far and away the most prevalent place for HIV.

Ok. So all of these people either have anal sex or drug addictions? Maybe you can buy into that. I’m going to keep asking questions. 

Are there any other things that all these groups have in common? 

Yes. Malnourishment. These groups all have different reasons for being malnourished, but they all are. Or can be.

How would you explain the disparity between the black people getting HIV so disproportionally compared to other races? 

A couple of different things. First off, they have lower body fat percentages than these other races. You know this already, but this study spells it out. That’s really it. I was going to say socio-economic disparities would be the other thing, but in this day and age it has to be drastic to cause malnourishment. Like in Africa.

What is so unique about Africa that people get HIV so often? 

HIV_world_map
HIV Prevalence Map

It’s a perfect storm of black people with low body fat and malnourishment. The economic and agricultural climate make it much more difficult to get and stay healthy, whatever that means.


So how do you explain the newborns with HIV in Africa? 

They’re born to HIV positive mothers. Those mothers are obviously passing along their nourishment to the child. I don’t think there’s a logical leap here. If the mother is malnourished, the children are likely to be malnourished. Here’s a study looking at the weights of these new borns.

What about drug addicts? 

You’ve seen these people. They do not look well. Many of these drugs are appetite suppressants, and they are often forced to choose between their next meal and their next fix.

But straight females get it too, right? 

Think about it. Straight females are most likely to have a negative body image or suffer from anorexia or bulimia. People with anorexia may develop immune deficiencies that may alter T-cell populations. That’s essentially what we call HIV.

Why do gay black guys get it so often way more often than any other subset?

A couple different reasons here: they start off with lower body fat percentages. They have malnourishment and/or body image problems. The gay culture is typically one of chiseled jawlines and thin waists. Maybe that’s a stereotype. [Here’s an article that digs into that part of gay culture.] Also worth noting, the receivers are much more likely to get HIV.

Why do old people get it more often? 

We’ve covered my opinion on aging, so almost by definition now, the aging population is underweight or malnourished [see How to age like white people]. Because of this they are more vulnerable to immunity problems. 45% of Americans living with HIV were 50 or older. 27% were 55+, and 6% were 65+. In general, older people are more likely to get it. Here’s an article that discusses it in more detail.

 

 

Before you call total bullshit, I didn’t invent anything here. I used the data already collected over years of scientific research, and questioned the logic behind it. I am not saying that HIV/AIDS is not real. I am just saying that the cause of the lowered immune response should be questioned. It’s hard to cure a disease when you don’t know what causes it.

Cancer is a brain disease

How can I possibly come to this conclusion? It’s pretty straightforward if you’ve read my other stuff. [I’ll link some important source articles below]

Entropy increases in the brain as we age.

Entropy causes aging.

Cancer is the last stage of cellular life. Therefore aging causes cancer.

Aging starts in the brain.

Thus, cancer starts in the brain.

Before you call bullshit, think about the entire field of epigenetics, the study of how your genetic code mutates over time. We know that you weren’t born with cancer. We know that your genetic code changes over time. And we also know that the chances of getting cancer greatly increases as you age.

So, in my opinion, there’s never going to be a magic pill or vaccination to cure cancer. We have to fight the disease at it’s source: the brain. How do we do that? We combat the aging process best we can: Sleep better, see better, and get in that cardio. We measure our personal time dilation, and think critically about the medicines we’re taking, because side effects matter. Take matters into your own hands, because you’ve been controlling things all along anyways, without even knowing it. 

 

 

Huntington’s is not genetic

Even doctors admit that it’s hard to distinguish between Huntington’s, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s. Here’s an article saying that treatment for one of these diseases may work for the other two. 

Some researchers and physicians consider the differentiation between cortical and sub-cortical dementia important for patient diagnosis, but others remain skeptical that a significant difference exists. The major criticism of the studies that show variation between cortical and sub-cortical dementias is that there is pathological overlap between the sample groups that are used to model the two categories. These studies often assume that Alzheimer’s patients mostly have cortical dementia and HD or Parkinson’s patients preferentially exhibit subcortical dementia. Necropsies have shown, however, that the brains of both Alzheimer’s and HD patients exhibit a certain degree of both categories of dementia.

If in fact both cortical and subcortical dementia occur in Alzheimer’s, HD, and Parkinson’s patients, then these studies may be problematic. As a result, physicians are still trying to learn more about the differences between the pathologies of the diseases in hopes of finding a more reliable way of differentiating dementias. The ability to differentiate dementias may lead researchers and physicians to better diagnose and treat neurodegenerative diseases. [Source]

We’re going to go through the symptoms, but if you’ve been reading, you know how this goes.

So first, here are the symptoms:

Cognitive: amnesia, delusion, lack of concentration, memory loss, mental confusion, slowness in activity, or difficulty thinking and understanding

Muscular: abnormality walking, increased muscle activity, involuntary movements, problems with coordination, loss of muscle, or muscle spasms

Behavioral: compulsive behavior, fidgeting, irritability, or lack of restraint

Psychological: delirium, depression, hallucination, or paranoia

Mood: anxiety, apathy, or mood swings

Also common: tremor, weight loss, or impaired voice

Those look familiar. Are there any symptoms that aren’t covered between Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and schizophrenia? 

“For most diseases, symptoms will vary from person to person. People with the same disease may not have all the symptoms listed.” Wait…what? I thought the symptoms were the only things separating this from the other diseases?

And is it really genetic? It’s complicated, but the consensus is yes. Even though 10% of cases are “due to a new mutation.” But what about that field of epigenetics that basically says that your genes can change over time? Here’s the unabridged version.

HD is typically inherited from a person’s parents, although up to 10% of cases are due to a new mutation. The disease is caused by an autosomal dominant mutation in either of an individual’s two copies of a gene called Huntingtin. This means a child of an affected person typically has a 50% chance of inheriting the disease. The Huntingtin gene provides the genetic information for a protein that is also called “huntingtin”. Expansion of CAG (cytosine-adenine-guanine) triplet repeats in the gene coding for the Huntingtin protein results in an abnormal protein, which gradually damages cells in the brain, through mechanisms that are not fully understood. Diagnosis is by genetic testing, which can be carried out at any time, regardless of whether or not symptoms are present. This fact raises several ethical debates: the age at which an individual is considered mature enough to choose testing; whether parents have the right to have their children tested; and managing confidentiality and disclosure of test results.

This segment is made up of a series of three DNA building blocks (cytosine, adenine, and guanine) that appear multiple times in a row. Normally, the CAG segment is repeated 10 to 35 times within the gene. In people with Huntington disease, the CAG segment is repeated 36 to more than 120 times. People with 36 to 39 CAG repeats may or may not develop the signs and symptoms of Huntington disease, while people with 40 or more repeats almost always develop the disorder.

So if you have 27-39 repeats of this code you may or may not get the disease. But if you have 40 or more repeats, you almost always get the disorder. Wait…almost always? So you’re saying even the hard science isn’t foolproof.

The number of CAG repeats in an HD gene can be unstable when the gene is passed on to the next generation. That means the number of CAG repeats can increase or decrease when the gene is passed from parent to child. Wait, it varies from generation to generation? In the sole aspect that we’re using to call it genetic?

Older fathers are more likely to pass along the extended copy of this gene. We’ve talked about aging parents several times before. We know that the age of mothers closely correlates to Down Syndrome, while the age of fathers closely correlates to Dwarfism.

I have a question for you. How often do we test people with dementia for this CAG repeat? I’m guessing there is not much reason to test for Huntington’s when there is no family history. 

So in summary, here’s why I don’t think Huntington’s disease is genetic:

  • 10% of cases are “random” mutations
  • Even the hard science is not absolute
  • It gets more probable with aging dad’s
  • Epigenetics. Our genes change over time.

So if it is not genetic, then it is practically indistinguishable from Alzheimers and Parkinson’s.

Did science get it wrong? Maybe so. I think that a bunch of guys spent their lives studying batches of symptoms, it was the least we could do to name these batches of symptoms after them. All the other fields of science do it. Here’s the problem, the more classifications did not lead to more knowledge in this case. Because the symptoms are indistinguishable.
