According to the Alzheimer's Association, more than 5 Million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s and by 2050 that number is projected to rise to nearly 14 Million.
It’s the 6th leading cause of death in the United States. 1 in 3 seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or Dementia and it kills more than Breast Cancer and Prostate Cancer combined.
Those are some pretty scary numbers and statistically-speaking someone you know or love has been affected by Alzheimer’s or Dementia.
Mike Koenigs can say that with confidence because it’s directly affected his family (and many of his mentors.) His dad has late stage 5 Dementia. He's watched him go from a strong, smart, capable guy to a shell. He can’t talk, walk or recognize any of his family. His mom has mid-stage Alzheimer’s.
Watching someone you love turn into a vegetable is his most painful life experience.
What if there was a cure or prevention for dementia or Alzheimers?
This is an extremely emotional episode for Mike but one that he's really looked forward to doing because of the exciting, preventative information he's about to share. If you're interested in extending your life and increasing your productivity, OR if someone you love has been affected by these horrific diseases, keep reading, listen and watch.
A wise man once said; "A healthy man has many wishes, a sick man, only one."
If you look at Mike's genetic profile, he's going to get either Alzheimer's or Dementia. It runs in his family so he's on a search to stop it. Honestly, he's more afraid of getting old than he is of dying. As a cancer survivor… he knows what dying slowly and painfully feels like and it’s no fun.
Mike met our guest, Dr. David Haase 7 years ago. He’s a double board-certified expert in regenerative medicine, (trained and practiced at Vanderbilt and the Mayo Clinic) and he's found a way to turn back your clock. His work is based on cutting-edge research in plasma exchange, and in the last 20 years, he's taught over 10,000 physicians his systems.
“The worst corresponding disease to dementia is denial.” - Dr. Hasse
We live in an information economy. We ARE our minds and when we have memory loss, we feel a threat to our identity and may believe there’s nothing we can do about it. Naturally, we go into “fight or flight” mode but if there's not an obvious enemy, the natural cognitive response is to deny there’s a problem. We shut it down to stop the stress and make excuses like “I'm just getting older, or I'm having a senior moment.”
According to Dr. Haase, after the age of 28, all of us are “Dementing and Alzheimering.” It just depends on the rate you're doing it at and when your brain is going to degenerate faster than your body can maintain the rest of you.
Haase believes we are entering a time where it doesn’t need to be this way. He says that most pharma drugs are just well-dosed poisons, but with Regenerative Plasma Exchange, they’re creating an environment where the body does its natural job of healing, with less inhibition.
Regenerative Plasma Exchange is a technology, based in science that has shown remarkable success in both Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s patients. It provides a longer, higher quality of life, improves mental acuity,
