Re: Does Alzheimer's Disease Stem From Infection?

This sounds like a possible key to my family's Alzheimer's. While going downhill rapidly with Alzheimer's, my father died of sudden kidney failure in one week due to an Epstein-Barr infection, that he had had chronically throughout his life. Epstein-Barr is also in the herpes family, and is know to ...

Intermittent Fasting

It took me a while to get IF going well because I work very long days at 2 jobs and really felt the need to have 3 meals. Plus before I started the Bredesen protocol, I was a grazer who never really ate a meal. So it has been a serious change for me. But I followed the suggestions to make the change...

Sleep!

I've been a terrible sleeper all my life, and the keto diet is making it even worse. I'm a classic short sleeper and always thought it was fine, but the newest research is finding that women in particular who sleep less than 5 hours per night have a higher incidence of dementia, and with my APoE4 ge...

Re: NAD/niacinamide

In episode 43 of Chris Masterjohn's podcast, he says that niacin and nicotinamide riboside tax the methylation system. (It's at 48:20 in the recording.) I have been taking the Thorne Niacel product that contains 250 mg of Niagen per capsule, but I'm planning to cut that to 100 mg per day to avoid m...

NAD/niacinamide

One small warning: Niacinamide isn't for everyone. There are many, many people who have very bad reactions to it. I have a homozygous MTHFR gene mutation, which makes niacinamide toxic to me, and in fact, when I try it, it makes me feel nauseated, exhausted, and sick for at least 24 hours, even at t...

Re: Newbie with child with Autism

Interesting research on aluminum and autism, Laurie! Autism is so different in so many different ways that I think we're going to find that it has many different causes. The genetic component is undeniable, and yes, I see the links you're talking about. My sister and I have the MTHF defects for hype...

Re: Newbie with child with Autism

So extra choline can help push PEMT a bit, or even better, supplementing phosphatidylcholine will help preserve methyl groups for other methylation functions, including those in the methylation cycle, creating neurotransmitters and creating creatine for brain and muscle fuel. Yes! CDP-choline and A...

Re: Sleep!

Yes, I do have trouble falling asleep. Then I have even more trouble staying asleep.

Re: All in the family

Hi Lamb Chops, I'm in a similar position, 63, and new to all this too. My father's whole family died of Alzheimer's, plus we have a lot of autism in our family (poor verbal skills, poor social connections, etc.) My sister and I are the only remaining members of the family, and we can both tell we're...

Sleep!

Hi, I'm new here. I've been using Bredesen's protocol for about 11 weeks, and all is going well on every front except for one: sleep. I'm in ketosis all the time at just the right levels, weight is low-normal, BMI is great, glucose is great, I take almost all the supplements Bredesen recommends, I e...
