Dr. Candice Hall recently published an article on shifting the direction and progression of Alzheimer’s Disease on ThirdAge.com.
It is estimated that 5.8 million Americans are living with the effects of Alzheimer’s dementia. With a new case developing every 65 seconds, that figure is expected to surge to 7.1 million people by 2025.
People who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease experience a progressive escalation of symptoms that increase like the temperature of a pot of water over an open flame. The most common manifestations include memory loss, challenges solving problems, difficulty completing tasks, misplacing things, general confusion, and mood swings. When these signs reach a boiling point, it’s often too late to address them with any hope of long-lasting success.
However, there is hope for cases that are diagnosed and managed with early, customized treatment programs. Research has identified that combining the foundational tools of a keto diet, exercise, brain stimulation, sleep, and supplements is a useful way to start shifting the direction and progression of the disease.

Hydroponics often rely on the use of toxic materials like Styrofoam and plastics that contain harmful chemicals, flame-retardants, and phthalates. That’s what we and our organic farmer allies call ‘fake’ organic.
For me (and I think you’ll agree) organic means food that is grown in a way that is good for the eater, good for the farmer and good for the future. And this is the key – organic means so much more than the absence of chemicals. It means that we are also regenerating the earth, building community and supporting farmers.
If you rely upon organic food for your health and that of your family, as I do, please sign the letter as a first step to ‘take back’ organic.
Tell Jenny Tucker at the National Organic Program, who administers the certification standards, that if it’s not in the soil it’s not organic.
Traditional western medicine approaches to diabetes focus on a prescription medication, exercise, and a “healthy” diet. Diabetics can lose a lot of hope trying different diets, different medications, different doctors, different workout programs, without getting different results. Certainly, if there were a particular diet or pill that was working to heal diabetes, then all diabetics would be on it and getting great results, but this is not the case.
According to Dr. Hall, “We must look deeper at each individual to see what factors led to their disease. For example, we now know that certain foods you eat may cause an immune reaction which results in increased blood sugar. We know the air pollution and toxicity from the environment and our food can increase blood sugar. We know genetics and reduced ability to detoxify the body efficiently plays a role in developing diabetes. Subclinical infections and inflammation can be at the root of diabetes. These problems can all be found through proper testing and addressed in an individualized treatment plan.”
In Functional Medicine, the key to healing diabetes is to test an individual to find out why the dysfunction is occurring and to develop an individualized treatment plan that addresses root causes and lifestyle factors. At Next Advanced Medicine, a functional medicine practice in Orange County, CA, we test each patient extensively to see which foods are causing problems with their blood sugar, thus we never see two patients on the same diet. Using a truly individualized approach, Next Advanced Medicine has healed diabetes in hundreds of patients, who have walked away from this disease and their medications.

GMOs, or genetically modified organisms, are plants that have been altered with the aim of becoming more appealing to a mass consumer population. This direct manipulation of an organism’s DNA in scientific laboratories has led to the presence of many unwanted and dangerous toxins in much of our food supply, such as fruits and vegetables genetically engineered to grow to several times larger than their natural size, and to be resistant to pesticides such as RoundUp.
Needless to say, this fabricated image of health and nourishment has had a drastic effect on the wellbeing of the consumers. Unknown to many, these GMOs have found their way into so many products that it is difficult to imagine how so little is known about them.
Okay, please sit down because GMOs
are nearly everywhere!
Many well-known GMO-containing products
It’s worth checking out the brand of
product you’re purchasing beforehand to check what they contain, but
fortunately, functional medicine can help you even if you’ve already consumed
Health risks of common GMOs include
endocrine disruption, increased susceptibility to allergies, antibiotic
resistance, lowered nutritional value of foods, inflammation, and leaky gut.
Ensuring a higher level of non-GMO and organic foods in your diet is a key functional health method to encourage your body to heal from the damage caused by GMOs. As with anything, this kind of healing takes time. It is important to think of this as part of a long-term plan to regain overall health and vitality, rather than a quick fix solution.
One simple action you can take to
reduce the effects of GMOs seems simple, and it is – stop BUYING THEM!
This is easier said than done,
however, as many GMOs sneak into our kitchens under the guise of foods we’d
regularly consider as ‘healthy’ and some even labeled as ‘natural products’. Vermont
was the first state to pass GMO labeling laws, which failed to pass in
California last year.
Here are some facts about common
Up to 90% of soybeans have been genetically modified to be naturally resistant to herbicides which farmers use to kill the weeds surrounding the beans. Not only does this create a GMO, but it creates a product FULL of pesticides.
Canola oil is derived from rapeseed oil and is considered one of the most chemically altered oils available.
One-fifth of the dairy cows in the United States have been given growth hormones to help them grow faster and increase their yield. These hormones can be found in the milk produced by these cows. It’s also been proven that these growth hormones have negative effects on the human body. Cows and other livestock are also fed GMO’s, which we then ingest.
Many other products like corn, sugar beets, yellow squash, zucchini, and papaya are also pumped full of chemicals to increase their resistance to herbicides in agriculture. Newsweek reported that Glyphosate or Roundup was the most used agricultural chemical ever with 50 times more allowed in corn and grain than in 1996. According to the article, “Americans have applied 1.8 million tons of glyphosate since its introduction in 1974. Worldwide, 9.4 million tons of the chemical have been sprayed onto fields. It’s also enough to spray nearly half a pound of RoundUp on every cultivated acre of land in the world”.
Glyphosate has tremendous effects on the health of the plants, animals, and humans it touches. It is a known endocrine disruptor causing problems with hormones and was named a probable human carcinogen by the World Health Organization in 2015. There is also extensive emerging research that glyphosate causes cell and DNA damage to epithelial cells and how it disrupts gut permeability by loosening the tight junctures in the gut. Dr. Zach Bush fully explores the relationship of the microbiome to overall health in this podcast. I highly recommend you watch this.
Until a solution has been found whereby farmers either discontinue the use of these chemicals or find another more natural way of protecting crops, it’s likely that GMO creation will continue.
There are more than 34,000 lawsuits filed against Monsanto regarding RoundUp and causing cancer. For updates on these cases visit here.
Many other countries have strict labeling laws for GMO’s and pesticides and have banned glyphosate. Unfortunately, even organic produce grown in the United States is allowed to have a minute level of pesticides derived from natural toxins and synthetic substances.
So what can we do to help? Buy organic and non-GMO when possible, and VOTE! With bills or ballot initiatives appearing in California, Connecticut, Maine, Oregon, and Washington; next time we have an opportunity to have our GMO’s labeled – we need to vote for this! Learn more.

It is so wonderful to witness true healing and the reversal of chronic diseases like diabetes and lupus. Helping people return to health while reducing and eliminating the need for prescription medications is such a blessing.
Next Advanced Medicine and in particular, Dr Kristi Vaughan, saved my life. In July 2019, I was diagnosed with diabetes which was devastating because I was already dealing with Lupus. After discovering I was allergic to Metformin, I was pretty hopeless until I met Dr Hall at a seminar. I believed wholeheartedly that my body could heal with the right support. I began working with Dr. Vaughan, and with the testing, close monitoring, and nutritional and emotional support, provide by Dr Vaughan, I was able to reverse the disease completely, dropping my A1C to 5 5. I sleep through the night and have no aches or pains, have tons of
Energy, and have the knowledge now to keep my body healthy on top of losing 25 pounds since July. We went beyond our original plan to also
eradicate heavy metals and mold and now even my Lupus symptoms are eliminated. It was a lot of work on my part, and it was not easy but so worth it. Dr Vaughan walks the walk with you and her knowledge is unparalleled. I am forever grateful to her and the entire staff at Next Advanced Meducine for giving me back the quality of life I craved and I am convinced my life has been lengthened as well. .
