Re: Ann Hathaway / Marin County, CA

I am due to see Dr. Hathaway soon and am feeling nervous about it for two reasons: 1. She has no place for me to recline or lie down during intake, though she is ostensibly an expert in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. 2. I totally bombed the keto diet: massive dehydration despite doing all the electrolyt...

Re: Low ferritin

I just got back labs showing low ferritin (23). Probably due to my greatly reduced red and other meat intake in my effort to reduce saturated fat. Would dessicated liver pills have any APOe4-unfriendly side effects? I don’t see any saturated fat on the Radiant Life dessicated liver label, but maybe...

Re: Looking for Adviice on Bredesen Protocol

My wife was diagnosed with MCI 8 months ago. It is something that has probably been going on for 2-3 years. She is 72 and APOE 3/4. I recently read Dale Bredesen’s book. I approached the book with a great deal of skepticism. My wife’s neurologist offers very little hope for the future. Dr. Bredesen...

Re: Coffee?

I definitely will! btw, were you really hauling a flagstone?? "Hauling" might be a stretch, but I was "carrying" a few broken pieces to make a path through some muddy ground, along with "dragging" bags of mulch, "lugging" bags of garden soil, "hoeing&quo...

Re: Zero carb diet will help prevent Alzheimer’s

I I didn't feel that the amount of fat on a lean body would throw the calculation off by any significant amount. For example, if I weigh 140 pounds and have 15% body fat (21 pounds), that's a difference of only 20g of protein (which I consider to be not that significant). And really, when it comes ...

Re: Zero carb diet will help prevent Alzheimer’s

https://www.diagnosisdiet.com/all-meat-diets/ Hi, I just looked at your website and question this statement: "If you ever weren't overweight as an adult, use that weight as your lean body mass weight." Determining lean body mass weight is important since your formula for protein intake is...

Re: Gellan Gum

I just found out what was giving me diarrhea for over a month. I thought it was twice frozen butter but it wasn't. It is Gellan Gum. The reason it took me so long to figure it out was because I was eating two things that had it in it. Organic Heavy cream and store bought Macadamia nut milk. So bewa...

Re: Helping your hippocampus

I love this line from the Washington Post article : And by turning our attention to the physical landscape that sustains and connects us, we can nourish “topophilia,” a sense of attachment and love for place. I am now adding topophilia to my list of favorite new words! I have always loved getting of...
