Re: Can Herpes Zoster ophthalmicus (Shingles) affect the Alzheimer's brain?

Should a Shingrex vaccination be standard for 4/4s? Is there any reason to avoid it? I linked to the CDC website earlier in this thread. It discusses who should get and who should not. While I think everyone who qualifies should get it, I haven't yet even though I qualify (do as I say, not as I do)...

Re: What one test should I add?

If I were to do one non-Medicare test, would you recommend a hormone panel or vitamins/minerals/metals? What do you mean by "hormone panel"? More extensive thyroid tests? Female hormones? If you were low on estradiol and progesterone female hormones (most likely as you are age 70), would ...

Re: 51 M 3/4 New Here

Q: I am about to buy all the supplements that are recommended for “Everyone” in the back of Dr. B book. And start those while I continue to focus on losing weight. Hi Terry; I personally think that taking a lot of supplements for prevention might be overkill and unsustainable for the long term. Mos...

Dr Mosconi published a book on nutrition called "Brain Food" 2 years ago, and has been mentioned/discussed on our website in the past (if anyone is interested in learning more about her approach before buying the new book!)

Re: I need help with selenium toxicity !!

Unfortunately Chris Masterjohn doesn’t really outline any solutions to get rid of excess selenium. He talks about deficiency of selenium a lot and not in any understandable way at that. He does say there needs to be more research on getting rid of excess. Is this from Masterjohn's 2/2017 podcast or...

Re: Just discovered I'm 4/4, rocked.

No, suspected hypothyroidism If you take the comma out of the above statement, there is a perfectly rational explanation of your TSH thyroid test. Typo? Your GGT is slightly elevated. This is a liver test that is not a part of the standard USA "liver function panel", so I rarely see it an...

Re: Elderly phone issues (texts)

Has anyone had similar issues? I am convinced resetting her phone or at least deleting text threads would immediately improve her attitude. Any thoughts on this issue? At first this idea was a joke, but now I've come to believe it would actually help her, although the ethics of doing this are in my...
