Understanding President Biden’s Cognitive Decline

Everyone who has recently observed the current Commander-in-Chief can confidently conclude that his cognitive capacity has considerably declined. While many attribute this discernible deterioration to old age, senility is not the sole factor. After all, even his present political opponent, who is only a few years younger, demonstrates strong mental acuity.

I surmise that the most significant cause contributing to Joe Biden’s seemingly steadily progressing cognitive challenges is vascular weakness. His past medical issues substantiate this supposition. By “past medical issues,” I am specifically referring to the brain aneurysm he suffered as a senator, which necessitated swift surgical intervention. (For those unfamiliar with the condition, an aneurysm is a protrusion in the wall of a blood vessel that is prone to rupture. In Biden’s case, the blood vessel was located in the brain.)

It also stands to reason that the aneurysm itself could have contributed to the President’s cognitive decline. A leaking brain artery invariably diminishes blood flow to the brain. In the then-senator’s case, it was the anterior communicating artery, which is crucial for maintaining adequate cerebral circulation, particularly to the frontal lobes, which are vital for cognitive performance.

Furthermore, Biden’s aneurysm caused bleeding around the brain (subarachnoid hemorrhage). This type of hemorrhage can increase pressure in the head (intracranial pressure) and lead to brain dysfunction. Moreover, subarachnoid hemorrhage is known to cause the blood vessels in the brain to constrict, which further reduces the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the brain, often affecting the areas responsible for thinking and memory.

The incident from over three decades ago appears to be merely a symptom of Biden’s underlying vascular disease, which made his blood vessels prone to damage and dysfunction, resulting in the deprivation of the brain cells of oxygen and nutrients.

Vascular weakness is diet-related in the vast majority of cases, and unless the life-threatening medical emergency motivated Senator Biden to make necessary dietary modifications, the root cause of the problem was probably never addressed.

What causes veins to become weak and damaged?

The answer is chronic, systemic Inflammation.

Blood vessels are lined with a layer of cells called endothelial cells. Inflammation disrupts the structure of these cells by weakening their bonds, thereby increasing the permeability of the blood vessel wall. Eventually, the blood vessels become so weak that they begin to leak.

I am not privy to the President’s day-to-day health or eating practices. However, generally speaking, the first thing I would recommend Mr. Biden do is eliminate all inflammation-inducing foods (especially cooked saturated fats, refined oils, and sugar) and simultaneously incorporate copious amounts of fresh organic berries (especially wild blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries) and freshly pressed juices of dark leafy greens (dandelion greens, watercress, arugula, etc.). Since these foods are abundant in antioxidants (vitamin C, vitamin E, flavonoids, polyphenols, etc.), they help neutralize free radicals and reduce oxidative stress, thereby repairing (tightening and strengthening) the inner endothelial cell barrier or endothelium. In addition, these particular plants possess potent anti-inflammatory properties, and inflammation, as I stated earlier, is the biggest factor behind blood vessel weakness.

Then there is calcium (found in high concentrations in dark leafy greens) which is crucial for the function and integrity of the endothelium. Low calcium levels can weaken veins and make them porous. However, when an individual has low calcium levels, it does not necessarily denote inadequate dietary intake of the mineral. The parathyroid gland (via parathyroid hormone) regulates the level of calcium in the body. Often, calcium deficiency is a consequence of poor parathyroid function. Additionally, I would be remiss if I failed to mention vitamin D, a nutrient essential for calcium absorption. Similar to hypoparathyroidism, vitamin D deficiency can lead to reduced calcium levels in the body.

In terms of herbs, I would encourage President Biden to consume bilberry fruit and cayenne pepper (at least 90,000 SHU—to ensure proper blood flow), as well as nootropics such as Bacopa monnieri, gotu kola, and ginkgo biloba to help regulate neurotransmitters in the brain and enhance cognitive faculties.

I extend the same recommendations to Donald Trump, particularly regarding diet, which has a profound impact on psychological processes. Regardless of who will be the next Commander-in-Chief, every American citizen, and indeed every person on this planet given the power of this position, should want that individual to be sound in both body and mind.
