Turmeric and omega 3 fish oil

Postby ironwood » Sat Sep 08, 2007 7:55 pm

Dear Readers,

Dr. Andrew Weil has referenced Turmeric. Others have referenced
omega 3 fish oil. These are food items and are not listed as
herbal remedies or medicines officially. Research indicates
peoples (like in north India) have GREATLY reduced Altzheimers

But, I have to tell you, this stuff togeather has really perked up
my dad in the nursing home. Google the subject. By the way, make sure your love one is getting 30 cc/kg bodyweight per day of WATER (25 cc/kg-day for kidney or congestive heart failure) (Around 1.5 to 2 quarts per day. More in the deserts.) These are Medicare Medicaid guidelines for nursing homes. Chronic dehydration causes:
falls, hyperthermia, LOSS OF THIRST OR APETITE (Yea, so they tell
you the loss of thirst and apetite is an outcome of altzheimer's
and now it is "endstage" when really it is chronic dehydration i.e.
NEGLECT!!!) Other effects of dehydration: disorientation,confusion,
impaired swallow reflex, airway congestion (girgle),ect.

Notice to site admin: If you think any of the above is "out of line"
please let me know. I'll be happy to reference you to the appropriate MD's who have published on every item above.

Hey,

There is no problem posting this here but if you have the reference I would be happy to read it anyway, out of sheer interest.

I have performed personal experiments with Omega-3 fish oils and I can say confidently that they increase alertness and concentration.

Kevin.

I gave my father lots of fish oil and tumeric extract (curcumin) when he got alzheimer's. I read about the Indian study. There's another extract called cat's claw that may have a component which helps reduce the plaques that cause alzheimer's.

I have read on the website http://www.alternativementalhealth.com that fish oil can help those with Bi-Polar disorder. Does anyone know if this is true from personal experience?

thanks

Hi,

I don't know, to be honest, but I'm sure that they can't do any harm. Fish-oils help you to concentrate better and could technically, therefore, allow you to think more clearly about your problems (and not to become so anxious about them that you feel completely lost).

they are starting to give fish oil and vitamin e to people in psych hospitals now. It is a good idea to take the stuff.

Although this part is off topic, I have to qualify this comment now. Recent drug trials of medications that reduce the plaques have failed. That casts much doubt on the plaque theory of alzheimer's.
http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/observations/2010/08/20/halted-alzheimers-drug-trials-renew-questions-about-causes-of-the-disease/

The plaques may be the body's response to something else that is actually causing the disease.
Some recent research has been looking at copper as a possible problem. http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/adeona-announces-five-scientific-publications-on-role-of-copper-toxicity-and-zinc-deficiency-in-alzheimers-disease-and-cognitive-decline-104759704.htmlCopper and zinc are know to bind the the amyloid plaques so some theorize that the plaque are the body's way of trying to remove toxic copper.
Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast.

I think is does work. There are even scientific research that say omega is nice for many things. I love this graph for instance. If this web is to be belived they say there is almost no evidence for it working on altzheimers. Sadly. Perhaps it has not been discovered. You find this rather low in the web.
