A 41 year old male
was referred by his Doctor as a recent medical checkup had revealed an abnormal

Very often I encourage my patients to follow a "Liver Detoxification Program".WARNING:

Could Alzheimer’s be a form of diabetes? Brain levels of insulin and its related cellular receptors fall during the early stages of Alzheimer’s, and as insulin levels continue to drop, the disease becomes more severe. Now, doctors are looking at memory problems like Alzheimer’s disease as a form of brain starvation, and one doctor says glucose metabolism can be the key to helping prevent this deadly disease.
Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia.
