Evolving Past Alzheimer's

May 21, 2018

We are going to pick up where we left off last week talking to Dr Mary Ackerley about mold and the phenomenon called Inhalational Alzheimer's. Last week we spoke about the diagnosis side of mold related cognitive impairment. this week we speak about treatments. 
For the second part of the show we pick up where we left off talk about a program that is available online called,The Dynamic Neural Retraining System.
-Step One
Remediation- you have to get away from the mold/mycotoxin/biotoxin exposure. Make sure to use a qualified Indoor Environmental Professional (IEP). This can often be the most difficult 
-Step Two
Basic Treatment 
  • binders such as cholestyramine, clay, charcoal and other
  • assessing and treating MARCoNS - a colonization of a certain type of staph infections. can be treated by specific nasal sprays or ozone.
  • addressing hormones - such as estrogen, DHEA, testosterone. 
  • VIP (vasoactive intestinal peptide) - a natural hormone. this perhaps encourage the growth of grey matter in the brain (FDA safety data has not yet been shown).
-Step Three
Advanced Treatment
  • in cases beyond simpler mold/mycotoxin cases into coinfections. This includes looking deeper at hormones or infections or parasites.
  • addressing Mast cell activation/Histamine issues - gut issues, flushing, itching, tongue and throat swelling, POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome), dysautonomia.
  • dealing with patient with Traumatic Brain Injury or serious psychiatric illness
Dr Ackerley is a co-founder of ISEAI, the International Society of Environmentally Acquired Illness. Society members are dedicated to researching and quantifying symptoms and treatment approaches from biotoxin mediated inflammatory illness.
