Re: Designing an E4 Fasting trial...

Sounds like a problem that could be solved by a dating app. Matching subjects to trials. ;)

Re: Designing an E4 Fasting trial...

I wonder if the planning of a trial could work backwards. Instead of seeking funding, then seeking subjects maybe we could all show up, ready to enroll. Can you imagine? All of us just waiting in the lobby of some university or the NIH? :D

Re: New 3/4 Guy Here

Hi Phil. It's a good thing when the testing motivates us to get check-ups and make lifestyle changes! Working with a good doctor to improve your health is bound to pay off, sooner and later. Welcome.

Re: best supplements for immediate short term memory??

A few years ago I was at a conference and there was a whole series of presentations about improving memory and test performance using.....blueberries. The impact was small but measurable, and overall the data was fairly convincing. Between 3-8 hours after consuming a bowl of blueberries student clas...

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

Hi donbob. On good days, I manage to have an outlook like this too! Being in the moment and having an acceptance of the "as is". I get knocked off my zen sometimes, however. I find it interesting to read about warriors and the eastern philosophies because they struggle and strive and succe...

Re: Still worried

Hi. It's normal to have some anxiety about this. I certainly did. And if you had some worries about health before, this could certainly trigger more of those feelings. It can be helpful to work on this - with a friend, family member, therapist, etc. Exercise is frequently recommended to help with va...

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

Thanks everyone for sharing your stories about this....it's reassuring to know I'm not alone in feeling these things. I hope I didn't sound pessimistic. I'm just finding that I don't always feel the connection between the evidence for risk-reduction and my personal journey. Like some of you mentione...

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

Thanks Mike. You're right vMRIs are a possibility. I was impressed by the ease and low cost of my recent heart calcium scan, and the good feeling of being able to track that over time. Hi Julie. Thanks. I'm going to read up on the bio-marker study. That sounds like it could help move research forwar...

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

Here's an odd question. Like many here I have several family members who have or had dementia - grandfather, grandmother, aunt, and, currently, my mom - and I have the genes to prove it. And like so many of us I too dove into the research literature and downloaded everything I could from the experts...

Re: Clear Spirits, why does Dr Gundry not include them in his diet?

Just a note. There's really not a lot of (poly)phenols in dark spirits, compared to say fruits and veggies, coffee or tea. You'd have to drink a whole lot of dark rum.
