Microbial Infections Cause Alzheimer’s Disease
Recent research is showing microbial infections can cause Alzheimer’s disease. Now there is emerging neuroscience research beginning to uncover the role of bacteria, viruses, and mold have in causing memory loss.
The bacteria living in our mouths that cause gingivitis (known as P. gingivalis), can be found in the brains of people with Alzheimer’s disease. This bacteria secretes substances that damage the brains and can enter the brain through the blood vessels in the gums, especially when the gums are infected. Eating a whole foods diet, and brushing and flossing every day can optimize the health of your mouth and gums.
The virus that causes cold sores known as Herpes Simplex virus Type 1, is also implicated in memory decline. If you have the APO E 4 gene, the risk of dementia may be even greater. The first study of it’s kind published last summer showed treatment for cold sores dramatically reduced the risk of Alzheimer’s disease by 2 ½ times. This is amazing! We absolutely know many other factors can contribute to the cause loss of memory and this study is extremely exciting.
