THE COGNITIVE TIMES Journal mini-series ~ The Cognitive Code of Alzheimer’s CRACKED

THE REAL CAUSE AND PREVENTION OF  MEMORY LOSS, DEMENTIA, AND COGNITIVE IMPAIRMENT NOBODY DISCUSSES !!! VOLUME I, Part I Defining the Definition of Alzheimer’s is definitively at the heart of defeating Alzheimer’s and Dementia.  This is definitely a process that keeps being ignored and overlooked in the effort to overcome the pervasive qualities of these debilitating brain diseases. There is a sort of sad joke that I’ve circulated around some of my associates, and that is the scary prospect that Dementia may actually be contagious.  Everyone is in agreement with this in the hypothetical sense – because in the care of the elderly condemned by the conditions of Dementia, who are processing the same limited pieces of information on a daily basis – and us with them – it seems we are practically destined to “inherit” the same conditional processes of  thinking , of cognizing, of emotioning…with little time to ourselves to do the one thing that can actually prevent or bypass falling under the spell of cognitive impairment.  And that would be to indeed spend some of our own lives actively mastering the requirements for advanced and open-ended thinking possibilities, or rather, engage in activities that really represent the qualities of unlimited learning. But this all sounds very philosophical, so let’s get down to the nitty-gritty scientific details. Let’s say for a moment that you already know what Alzheimer’s and Dementia are, which in itself is a bit of a conundrum, because the field of Neuroscience is still itself baffled by this disease.  But whoever said that you have to get all of your information from experts? Before taking any time to read this article, take a minute to trust yourself. Consider your own definition of what Alzheimer’s and Dementia are, especially if you’ve been exposed to it, and if your life has been dramatically changed by it, particularly because you are taking care of someone you love that is now suffering from this condition.  Rather than just think about what you would define it as, feel your way through defining it – – because to truly understand what Dementia is, we must all be honestly open-hearted as well as open-minded to comprehend this disease.  Is that so?  Well yes, since at the core of cognitive impairment is precisely these two functions, that is to say these two dysfunctional functions. Whatever the Neuroscience, Pharmaceutical, and Genetic fields and experts are telling you – and literally diverting your own train of thought, here is the truth: Alzheimer’s is essentially, definitively, originally and ultimately a cognitive issue.  Of course there are links and connections to diet and exercise and DNA anomalies, but cognition is at the core, right, front, back and center of the manifestation of this disease.  And until we make peace with that, until we acknowledge that, it will remain somewhat of a mystery.  However, when we define it for what it really is, then we can demystify it. In VOLUME I, Part 2, we will discuss the actual missing elements that cause and constitute cognitive impairment….soon to be posted.
