Q. Hi Terry, “I remember taking iodine pills when I was a child. However, I hadn’t really thought about iodine much after that until a friend suggested I try it for help with energy. Can iodine help increase energy?” — Louise A., Rock Hill, SC

Curcumin, my top favorite medicinal plant has been clinically studied numerous times and found to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. I just ran across a study from 2012 that indicated a higher vitamin D dietary level was associated with a lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease among older women. Hypovitaminosis D is common among older adults affecting up to 90% of the elderly population. This is crucial in that results of epidemiological studies suggest the Hypovitaminosis D is associated with cognitive function and Alzheimer’s disease.
Vitamin D is a steroid hormone and not a vitamin that exhibits neurosteroid actions in the central nervous system, and it has been proposed that the chronic deficit of vitamin D neurotrophic anti-inflammatory as well as antioxidant properties may partially explain neuronal degeneration and Alzheimer’s disease.
Several other studies have shown sage essential oil and oil of rosemary were effective as an inhibitor of cholinesterase. Cholinesterase, an enzyme that typically breaks down acetylcholine, one of our essential brain neurotransmitters. A possible combination of curcumin, vitamin D, oil of sage and rosemary could be possibly more effective than drugs in reducing the effects of Alzheimer’s disease and the prevention of this disease. I believe the only drug approved currently is Aricept which is also based on its ability to inhibit cholinesterase. For the most part, Aricept has not been very effective or successful.
TODAY'S WORD From Joel and Victoria
Your Original Software
Our minds work like a computer. The way you program it is the way it’s going to function. You can have the most powerful computer made, but if you put the wrong software in it, it’s not going to function like it was designed. We’ve all had to deal with these computer viruses. All these problems occur not because the computer is defective, but because somebody contaminated the software.
In the same way, when God created you, He stepped back and said, “Another masterpiece.” Your hardware is perfect. From the very beginning, He programmed you to be victorious, healthy, strong and creative. He programmed, “Whatever you touch will prosper and succeed.” He programmed, “The head and not the tail. Lend and not borrow. Victor and not victim.”
That’s how your Creator designed you. But the reason we don’t always experience this abundant life is because we’ve allowed viruses to contaminate our software. Because our software is infected, we go around with low self-esteem, negative and doubtful. It’s time to reprogram your mind with the Word of God! Meditate on what He says about you, delete the viruses, and get back to your original software!

"Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will." (Romans 12:2, NIV)
The struggle and the challenge is the prize not the riches! —Terry Lemerond
