Could Aluminum in the Brain Hinder Insulin Production in the Pancreas?

A few months ago, Nicole read a historical children fiction book to Jonah. Canadian author Jean Little wrote the book. Next thing you know, Nicole’s reading all of Jean Little’s works on her own time. Now, she’s engrossed with L. M. Montgomery’s children classics, starting with Anne of Green Gables.

“I just want to read children books,” she told Pam Killeen last Monday on the phone. (Sergeant Pam is her biochemical restoration practitioner.)

“No wonder,” said Pam. “Your aluminum is so high, reading anything else would be too difficult.”

In the last post, I showed how Nicole’s latest hair mineral analysis test indicates a 32-fold increase in aluminum elimination. According to Analytical Research Labs, “Aluminum is stored mainly in the lungs, liver, thyroid, bone and brain.” When stored in the brain it has been found to cause mental problems.

Dementia, memory loss, confusion and disorientation are all attributed to aluminum toxicity. Nicole’s suffered from these types of symptoms for decades. The last ten years have been especially bad. Her grey matter karma culminated with a brain seizure two years ago where she couldn’t recall her son’s name.

Some may wonder what detoxing aluminum has to do with healing Nicole of type-1 diabetes.  The short answer is that fixing type-1 diabetes may not be all that difficult. Something the body can do automatically, once you fix the rest of the body… including the brain.

If the brain can’t remember simple nouns, how will it mobilize the immune system to protect the beta cells from invaders? I’m not suggesting this is the only reason type-1 diabetics can’t produce insulin. I rather suspect that there are multiple reasons. But impaired brain function could play a part, directly or indirectly.

Either way, brain fog sure makes calculating insulin dosages and balancing blood sugar all the more difficult.

Since the aluminum is on its way out, that means it’s passing through the bloodstream (on the way to the kidneys, skin, lungs and colon). It’s no surprise Nicole is finding thinking more difficult.

Still, reading kid’s novels isn’t as bad as it sounds. Have you ever read any L. M. Montgomery? I often find a child’s book from 1908 more difficult to read than many adult books published today. At least she can still read. Maybe she’ll become the next J. K. Rowling when this is all over.

Now, if I find Nicole reading, and re-reading, The Cat in the Hat… I’ll start to get concerned.

P.S. There are many more symptoms of aluminum toxicity. It’s not just a brain scrambler. I’ll save them for future e-letters. Next post, however, I’ll share with you what Nicole’s latest blood tests have to say about her current kidney function.
