alzheimers news-cramp med helps


Alzheimer's Texas

in the process of developing alzheimers in the brain
there is a process of inflammation that occurs
this inflammation is part of the bodys way to try to fix
repair or isolate disease

if you have a disease like rheumatoid arthritis or
osteoarthritis you feel that inflammation every day
many of the drugs used to treat this pain attack the
inflammatory response the body has to the joints

so they use steroids commonly prednisone to treat
this reaction
its also used in asthma and allergies to attack inflammation

they also use nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs nsaids
ie naproxyn ibuprofen etc

people with inflammatory bowel disease ie crohns disease
and ulcerative colitis use steroids also
to slow down the inflammatory reaction in the bowel

people with gluten disease get an inflammatory reaction
in the gut that causes pain and discomfort
it appears this inflammation may transfer itself to the
brain also

now enter the cramp med helps
there is a nsaid that has been used for years to treat menstrual
many of you may have used it in the past

the drug attacks a particular part of the inflammatory reaction
that in menstrual pain it seems to help

scientists have been looking closely at the nsaids to see
if they can have an effect on slowing down the
inflammatory reaction in the brain that occurs in
alzheimers disease

enter the alzheimers rat
a rat that has had the dominant gene for alzheimers inscripted
into his genome
hes gonna get alzheimers disease 100% of the time
Image result for mefenamic acid brand names
so these researchers fed this nsaid drug mefenamic acid
or ponstel
used for menstrual cramps
to these poor male volunteer rats who were doomed to die
from alzheimers disease

the mefenamic targets nlrp3 inflammasomes in the brain that
causes brain cells to be damaged

all 100% of those doomed rats had their alzheimers go away
ie their memory loss was reversed and the inflammation cleared

now if only it would work in humans
remember this is one of those generic drugs that a drug company
cant make money on
they just need funding to do the research on humans

enter togd
thats me the organicgreen doctor
