It is fairly obvious that we live in a toxic world and our brains are poisoned continuously, and this constant low level of exposure over time is slowly damaging our neurons and brain cells. The worse news is that this harmful toxic environment is not going to stop anytime in the foreseeable future and environmental toxins are a leading cause of neurological illnesses. It is also well established that oxidative stress contributes to various diseases including diabetes, heart disease, inflammatory conditions, high blood pressure, and neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. It is therefore inevitable that exposure to such conditions including heavy metals, EMF radiation, bacteria and viruses will require a strong immune system to defeat such harmful toxins, and that almost 80 percent of the immune system is located in the gut. The main causes of neurological diseases are already known and the standard drug treatments (e.g., Aricept and Namenda for Alzheimer's) slow the progression of such terrible diseases, but they do not address the root cause of memory loss. Glutathione is known as body's master antioxidant being effective against oxidative stress and inflammation. Along with other natural antioxidants in the body, it works to defeat the harmful effects of free radicals which cause damage to cells and tissue leading to various health conditions. In this review, the main factors, including environmental toxins, causing neurological illnesses like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, and natural ways of prevention and treatment protocols have been discussed. The proposed treatment protocol could be lifesaving and is supported by the extensively published literature.
