Dear Friends,
As promised last month, I’ll show you another very inexpensive
phytonutrient that also helps stave off Alzheimer’s. And it
couldn’t be more simple and more economical.
But first you need to take another quantum leap into the world of
God’s miraculous design of the human body. Caution: You will
once again know more than most physicians you will ever meet.
But since you are your main healer, you need to. So if it overwhelms
you, don’t worry. You will absorb as much as you need
for now and re-reading will escalate you to new heights.

In terms of the nervous system, just by itself ginger
has been used for insomnia, neuroses, psychiatric disorders,
stroke, depression, and dementia (memory deterioration
and early stages of Alzheimer’s) as well as
having a protective effect against aging and degenerative
diseases due to its antioxidant capacity
. And
by being an “amyloid eater”, it lowers the protein
that causes Alzheimer’s. Yet best of all, ginger also
actually (1) accelerates the growth of nerves in the
hippocampus where new memory is created. If that
were not great enough by itself, (2) ginger helps
boost the genes that are necessary for new memory,
and (3) helps to grow new connections (synapses) in
the brain (necessary for making new memory).
