The Official Site for the Protocols of Dr. William D. Kelley, D.D.S., M.S.
Category Archives: Have You Lost Your Mind?
Although not a part of the Kelley protocols, the subject matter hits too close to home for many of our readers, as we offer commentary related to Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Our prayers remain with Tom and his family for recovery from this dread – and for all of those afflicted. What are the causes? What are we eating, drinking and breathing? Maybe some of the same things that are causing the cancer…
Dementia haunts the United States. There’s no one without a personal story about how dementia has touched someone they care for. But beyond personal stories, the broader narrative is staggering: By 2050, we are on track to have almost 15 million Alzheimer’s patients in the US alone. That’s roughly the population of NYC, Los Angeles, and Chicago combined. Now add a few more cities to take care of them.
It’s an epidemic that’s already underway—but we don’t recognize it as such. The popular conception of Alzheimer’s is as an inevitable outcome of aging, bad genes, or both. Continue reading →
No one really knows what causes Alzheimer’s, but recent studies on the disease are promising. Researchers at the University of British Columbia in Canada have discovered that Alzheimer’s-causing proteins can be formed in the liver and the kidneys, and then transported to the brain through the blood.

Autistic children have up to 10 times more aluminum in their brains than healthy adults
Does human exposure to aluminium have a role to play in autism spectrum disorder (ASD)? Research at Keele University published in the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology provides the strongest indication yet that aluminium is an aetiological agent in ASD. Continue reading →
If you’re craving something sweet, grab an apple instead of a bar of chocolate. A group of scientists has recently discovered a link between high glucose levels in the brain and symptoms of memory loss, which could lead to Alzheimer’s.
The brain breaks down glucose, or sugar in its most basic form, and it is used to provide energy to make the brain function. However, individuals with brains that had a hard time breaking down glucose showed more signs of brain plaques and tangles, which are indicators of Alzheimer’s. Continue reading →
The rate of Alzheimer’s disease in America is expected to double by 2060 to 15 million, a new study revealed. That is up from this year’s rate of 6.08 million Americans that have the debilitating brain disease.
This study – the first of its kind – estimated that 47 million Americans have early signs of Alzheimer’s disease or mild cognitive impairment. Continue reading →
What causes Alzheimer’s Disease (AD)? I recently read an article written by Stephanie Seneff, a Senior Research Scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. I know from my years at Harvard that MIT does not employ dummies. So it’s worthwhile reading her “Recipe for Developing AD.” Continue reading →
Memory is an astonishingly powerful thing. It allows you instantly call to mind events, emotions, songs, smells, first loves, first dates, and a thousand other things. In some senses, it is a mysterious thing. How can our brains call such powerful and vivid images to mind years after the fact?
While memory isn’t a physical object that can be studied like a plant or species of animal, we can analyze the cycle of remembering. Continue reading →
From doctors giving women orgasms to cure their ‘hysteria’ to cocaine to sooth toothache and tobacco enemas to revive drowning victims…
It was not unusual for Victorian women to be given orgasms by their doctors – in a bid to cure them of their ‘hysteria’, a common problem said to affect three in four.
Cocaine was also once used to soothe tooth pain – and was famously an ingredient in Coca Cola – while tobacco enemas were a form of first aid given to revive drowning victims in the 18th century. Continue reading →
August 9, 2017: Late yesterday we heard of the death of musician, singer and performer, Glen Campbell. Of course I was well aware of his music and career – the good, the bad and the sometimes ugly. I did not go out of my way to listen to him often, yet many years ago I had a LIVE multi-hour concert which he had performed at the Royal Albert Hall in England – and yes – I did enjoy it.
Over the past few years we would hear little updates regarding the progress of his Alzheimers Disease, but what I was not aware of until this very day – is that his final tour was an amazing family journey – as well as a life lesson to all those who have either suffered, or have witnessed the suffering and ultimate death of friends or loved ones.

Do you often find yourself forgetting things? Or do you perhaps have a history of Alzheimer’s in the family?
It is important that you catch the illness early to begin preventative treatment and prevent it from worsening. The following is a list of 9 signs of Alzheimer’s that you should look out for. Continue reading →
An active ingredient in green tea called epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) was found to inhibit memory impairment, brain insulin resistance, and obesity, a new study concluded. According to a study that was published online in The FASEB Journal, EGCG, the most abundant catechin and bioactive component in green tea, can contribute to addressing neuroinflammation issues and brain insulin resistance that is triggered by a high-fat, high-fructose diet (HFFD). Continue reading →
Watch an artist perform with such passion and artistry as he completes his final album from 2014. This is one of the most pointed and heartfelt videos I have ever seen. Glen Campbell, dead at 81 years of life, August 8, 2017.
How tangy fruits could be a powerful weapon against condition
Eating an orange a day could slash the risk of dementia, a major study shows.
Daily intake of any citrus fruits such as oranges, grapefruits, lemons or limes can cut the chances of developing the incurable brain condition by almost a quarter, it suggests.
The findings, by a team of scientists at Tohoku University in Japan, suggest that tangy fruits could be a powerful weapon against a disease that is emerging as a modern day epidemic. Continue reading →
