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…
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).

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 →
It may show up decades before disease is diagnosed, say researchers
Getting lost could be an early sign that Alzheimer’s disease might affect you later in life, according to new research.
The Prevent project, based at Edinburgh University, aims to understand early biological and clinical markers to identify risks in young people and to help prevent Alzheimer’s and dementia.
The study, funded by the Alzheimer’s Society, suggests that poor navigational skills could be linked to the disease.
‘Alzheimer’s is considered to be a disease of memory but we now think from our early work that the difficulty people are really having – at least to begin with – is not to do with declining memories but to do with their declining ability to visualise the location of objects or themselves,’ said Karen Ritchie, one of the researchers, according to The Guardian.

Regular low doses of THC dramatically boosted memory and learning in older mice, say scientists, who plan a clinical trial in humans later this year
Older mice given THC improved so much that their performance in tests matched those of healthy drug-free young mice – and benefits lasted for weeks after the infusions ended.
Researchers have come up with an unusual proposal to slow, or even reverse, the cognitive decline that comes with old age: small, daily doses of cannabis extract.
The idea emerged from tests on mice which found that regular, low doses of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis – impaired memory and learning in young animals, but boosted the performance of old ones. Continue reading →
