In the Cause of Mental Retardation, Dementia, and Alzheimer’s Disease

In my new book being published (Preventing Cancer), I list 54 different foods that are rated for nutrition value, electromagnetic value, and ionic/cationic (acid/base) values. These 54 different foods are rated from a great high electromagnetic nutrition value (10, the most nutritious food) down to (-5, the least valuable food for health).

Eating the valuable foods (nutritionally rated 10 down to +7) will produce electromagnetic ionic food that will help maintain 80/20 good bacteria to bad bacteria ratio in the small intestine. From +7 to -5 are non-electromagnetic foods.

From the non-electromagnetic cationic rated foods(+7 to -5), There is no nutrition or electromagnetic value. Overconsumption of these foods raises the bad bacteria ratio which allows candida fungus, parasites, parasite larvae, toxins, and bad bacteria to create small holes in the intestine (leaky gut). These damaging culprits get into the bloodstream and create harm to your small intestine, blood, body cells, organs, brain, immune system, health, and longevity.

Eating the most valuable electromagnetic ionic foods will produce an 80/20 intestinal bacteria ratio which a healthy individual critically needs for maintaining a disease-free, great immune system, acute mental acuity, body health, and longevity goal. But 35 percent of the U.S. population do not eat and maintain this 80/20 (good to bad) bacteria ratio.

Dr. Weston Price, who I wrote about last week, mentioned that diets from 14 indigenous tribes all over the world, maintained a much better diet than people of today. He showed that almost all these people ate a diet that provided an 80/20 intestinal bacteria ratio. They had very little or no mental disorders and mental retardation. This is extremely important because it shows that a good diet connects with body health, brain health, mental acuity, and not mental retardation, dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease. These people had very little or none of these mental disorders.

Connecting the dots, the diets of modern people compared to these indigenous people has a direct correlation with the cause of mental disorders, dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease. It is estimated that over 46,000,000 people in the U.S. have some mental acuity disorder.

Here is where the correlation between the 80/20 (80 % electromagnetic) diet relates to a free-thinking healthy brain, while a (more than 20% non-electromagnetic) diet can be related to a mental disorder, or neurotransmission (short circuit) connection between the synapse (gap) in the brain neurons, causing dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

First, a person needs to understand the root cause of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. It is caused by the failure of the neuro-chemical electromagnetic impulses, (circuits) not connecting between the neurons (synapses) in the brain. Breaking this down, the brain cells, or neurons, have attachments called axons. There are over 86 billion neurons and axons in the brain. At the end of each axon is a gap (synapse) that connects to the next axon by an electromagnetic neurochemical connection. This allows thinking and memory to occur. These neurotransmitters are composed of many different chemicals that create the connection between the axons. These chemical neurotransmitters play an enormous role in mental health, cognitive thinking, body movement, overall health, and mental activity.

Big pharma has spent millions of dollars in searching and producing medications for these psychiatric conditions. Psychiatric medications usually treat the symptoms, not the cause.

These are some of the underlying physical and chemical deficiency causes related to these dreaded brain diseases, and the brain/neuron/synapse connection. To understand, the synapse is the space where the chemical connection takes place. One. There may be a certain chemical deficiency because of the inadequate non-electromagnetic diet. Two. Other substances in the brain such as enzymes, amino acids, or hormones may deactivate the neurotransmitters. Three. Neurotransmitters may have a lack of chemicals necessary for synapse connection. This may occur because the cationic, non-electromagnetic diet reaches an excess of over 20%. This may result in a short circuit in the synapse. Four. Drugs and disease may play a big role in memory loss.

To fully answer these underlying physical and chemical questions concerning memory loss is impossible. Many answers are needed. However, from my research and biochemical background, I will give my evaluation of this neurotransmitter short circuit deficiency. Please remember that my small brain has limited resources to evaluate the hundreds of factors that create this monster-size memory problem.

The role of neuron connection chemical neurotransmitters is that of a chemical messenger. It carries signals between neurons and other cells throughout the body. To complicate this situation there are over 86 billion neurons in the brain, and an extension of the neuron is a part called the axon. The axons are long filament extensions of the neurons. The synapse connection is at the end of the axons. Chemical signals or circuit connections with chemicals reach across these tiny gaps like an arc crosses an electrical gap. These chemical circuits keep our brain functioning, manage our metabolism, breathing, heartbeat, cognitive thinking, motor movements, memory, and concentration.

Now comes the complicated part that is related to your diet, electromagnetic ionic foods, and the 80/20 bacteria ratio in your small intestine. Scientists have found more than 60 different chemical messengers and receptors in different synapses present throughout the body. The chemical makeup of neurotransmitters is very complicated. Your diet requires a high percentage of electromagnetic ionic foods to create these many chemicals. Remember that non-electromagnetic foods are dead-circuit foods as related to chemical transmissions.

To name just a small few of these chemicals involved with neurotransmission, they are acetylcholine, dopamine, butyric acid, glutamine, peptides, (cytotoxins) endorphins, epinephrine, histamine, and serotonin.

Acetylcholine is a major ingredient and has many functions including muscle movement, contraction of smooth muscle, cognitive thinking, memory, and much more. It acts as a neurotransmitter and neuromodulator.

Dr. Weston Price found that the modern U.S. diet is devoid of water-soluble vitamins by four times and fat-soluble vitamins by 10 times. These are all electromagnetic foods that are involved with neurotransmission in the synapse. Our modern diets also are lacking many chemical ingredients that are critically needed for these 60+ chemical neurotransmitters to cross the axon gaps. The average daily consumption of 22 teaspoons of sugar (dead electrical food), grocery shelf oils (dead electrical foods), acetic foods, refined, and processed foods do not help the electromagnetic chemical deficiencies that produce these critical axon circuit gap connections.

The relation between the 80/20 (good to bad) bacteria ratio over a long period of time (many years) can be the missing link as to why the essential chemical messengers are missing from the neuron/axon/synapse chemical transmission. Dr. Weston Price stated that the isolated tribes ate more electromagnetic foods than non-electromagnetic foods. They did not have sugar, dead oils, refined, and processed foods to bring down the 80/20 ratio. Non-electromagnetic foods can act the same way as the (hit) or formation of new cancer cells in the mitochondria of body cells. People who retain their memory and cognitive thinking abilities may be getting a better long-term electromagnetic diet than those who get mental retardation, dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease.

Associated with mercury elimination, oral surgery, crowns and bridges is TMJ treatment, diet control, parasite elimination, intestinal cleansing and healing (wellness).

Merle E. Loudon, B.S., D.D.S. has taught advanced courses for dentists on TM Dysfunction treatment, orthodontics and related pain control for more than 30 years. In 1972 he was the first dentist in Washington to use straight wire orthodontics and the first dentist to correct vertical deficiencies in children by placing vertical dimension-primary molar buildups and/or vertical (erupting) appliances. Merle E. Loudon, B.S., D.D.S. was involved with the first group of dentists to recognize lateral tongue splinting in young infants and integrate functional and fixed techniques to correct vertical dimension deficiencies and condylar placement. He is the originator of vertical dimension-primary molar build ups, which help to correct deep bites and Otitus media in children. He invented the Loudon-Chateau Anterior Repositioning Appliance, the functional muscle malocclusion concept, the twelve commandments of occlusion and the vertical overbite domino rule. Merle E. Loudon, B.S., D.D.S. has written numerous articles in several American and foreign dental journals and has lectured in over 50 cities and 7 foreign countries on functional jaw orthopedics, fixed wire orthodontics, Otitus media treatment and TM Dysfunction treatment.
