Re: Modified citrus pectin can minimize heavy metal toxicity

I've been taking it (Pectasol-C) for about three months, along with some other detox supplements and prescription DMSA -- all recommended by my functional medicine doctor, after flunking my heavy metals tests. Modified citrus pectin is not cheap, but it seems to be safe and supposedly has some advan...

Re: cognitive disconnect - do you "feel" you are reducing risk?

I think it's a good question. The short answer . . . I absolutely feel that I am reducing my risk. Long answer . . . I am painfully aware that I have many risk factors: ApoE 4/4, other AD genetics, family history, homozygous MTHFR 1298c, homozygous H63D (absorb iron a bit too readily), and current h...

Re: Broken Brain 2

Is anybody following this series narrated by Dr. Mark Hyman? I watched the whole thing! Including Bredesen’s shoutout to you. :) Although there was a bit too much jumping around for my taste (Sometimes I just want to hear the whole interview!), the docuseries definitely touched on a lot of importan...

Re: E4s Have Earlier Menopause Onset?

I'm curious as to WHY ApoE4 might cause earlier menopause. I'm 4/4 and had surgical menopause at 50, so all I know is I wasn't early, in spite of having been told to expect early menopause due to only having had one ovary and having had surgery on the other. What I do know is that my brain could not...

Re: New e4/e4

I celebrate when I hit 7 hours (especially consecutive) Yes, it was my goal too: get two 7 hr sleeps in a row. I lowered the threshold by 30 min after I read a study by FitBit, https://blog.fitbit.com/sleep-study/ , the takeaway is that for women age > 55 average sleep time is around 6.5 hours. The...

Re: New e4/e4

Thank you, Anna! Not an easy journey so far. You're welcome :) No, it is not an easy journey. But most days, I'm glad to know my status. It took me a while to get to that point. It also took time to be able to research AD prevention without triggering major anxiety or sense of doom. Thanks for the ...

Re: New to Site and Seeking Guidance

Hi NatureLover. I recently learned about my e4/e4 status. I am still on the rollercoaster of some days believing my vision for my future is now vastly different, versus other days where I think I can potentially stave off the onset of Alzheimer's. Yep, that's exactly how I felt two plus years ago wh...

Re: New e4/e4

Welcome to the community Sabaka. I am also 4/4 (I learned my status a couple years ago at age 52). This is quite a journey, isn't it? I am intimately familiar with the misery of chronic sleep deprivation resulting from relentless insomnia. I am not sure if you are aware that the anticholinergic effe...

Re: Newbie introduction

Welcome Metta4! I love your username :) I'm sorry about your mom and her brother. Both of my parents gifted me a copy of ApoE4, and they are both doing OK at ages 79 and 80 in spite of a strong family history otherwise. My mom eats a healthy diet and takes a lot of supplements, and my dad keeps phys...

Re: Heavy Metals testing

Thanks for posting this which explains what is behind your doctor's concern about low urine pH. Please post when you get the results of the challenge test. I got the results of the provoked test: very high lead (18ug/g creat -- at the high end of the red zone) and high thallium. Lead was within &qu...
