Have We Discovered the Cause of Neurodegenerative Disease? by Mark Hyman, M.D. - Sep 2019 interview with Jay Lombard, M.D. neurologist, who is finding that C. difficile infection (in the brain?) seems likely to contribute to ALS, Alzheimers, Parkinsons and maybe more like MS. They discuss how antibiotic therapy (and using acid blockers) may set someone up for these diseases. Fever (intentional hyperthermia - Dr. Hyman went to Mexico for his 107 degree F treatment) is shared as an endogenous treatment to possibly denature (protein) the bacteria spores. (Some people seem to never get a fever -bad?) Dr. Lombard is able to help slow disease progression. Bacteria like the brain because it has extra glucose. Sleep is important too. (Yale researcher found a way to externally monitor the brain temperature which assists safely using heat.) MS perhaps would benefit from cold therapy (heat exacerbates).
Medications that Seem to Facilitate Alzheimer's by MercolaPDF - May 2022 Anticholinergic drugs block acetylcholine affecting the nervous system. Found in antihistamines like Benadryl or Chlor-trimeton; sleep aids like Tylenol PM, Aleve PM or Unisom; motion sickness medication Dramamine; and various cold medicines. (e.g. diphenhydramine, chlorpheniramine, pyrilamine).

Preventing and Reversing Alzheimer's with Dr. Dale Bredesen by Dr. Rhonda Patrick - Oct 2018 There are several types of Alzheimer's. Type 1 = inflammatory (hot), 2 = non-inflammatory, atrophic (dry), 3 - cortical toxicity and 1.5 = change in cerebra glucose metabolism. It seems taht the beta amyloid and tau tangles may be the brain's defense mechanism against microbes and heavy metals/toxins (or loss of trophic support) respectively. Their treatment plan is customized depending on the patient's type. Treatments includes exercise, sleep, organic vegetables, some fish, flexatarian keto eating with a minimum of 12-16 hour daily fasting, not eating less than 3 hours before sleep, avoiding/ eliminating toxins, hot sauna and watching your BMI. (Dr. Rolland's comments: Technical and fast paced but interesting. I would like to see what this doctor is now recommending.)
