Alzheimer’s – Alternative Treatment, Prevention, Scientific Studies

  • There are unexplained links between human exposure to aluminium and the incidence, progression and aetiology of Alzheimer’s disease. The null hypothesis which underlies any link is that there would be no Alzheimer’s disease in the effective absence of a body burden of aluminium.  Based upon the premise that urinary aluminium is the best non-invasive estimate of body burden of aluminium patients with Alzheimer’s disease were asked to drink 1.5 L of a silicic acid-rich mineral water each day for five days and, by comparison of their urinary excretion of aluminium pre-and post this simple procedure, the influence upon their body burden of aluminium was determined. Drinking the mineral water increased significantly (P<0.001) their urinary excretion of silicic acid (34.3 ± 15.2 to 55.7 ± 14.2 μmol/mmol creatinine) and concomitantly reduced significantly P=0.037) their urinary excretion of aluminium (86.0 ± 24.3 to 62.2 ± 23.2 nmol/mmol creatinine). The latter was achieved without any significant (P>0.05) influence upon the urinary excretion of iron (20.7 ± 9.5 to 21.7 ± 13.8 nmol/mmol creatinine). The reduction in urinary aluminium supported the future longer-term use of silicic acid as non-invasive therapy for reducing the body burden of aluminium in Alzheimer’s disease.
