Re: Calling all Alzheimer's Activists!

Huge thanks to all who continue to post here. We’d love everyone’s help and participation. While I’ve been very busy with work deadlines, this project is never far from my mind. I’m currently leaving Norfolk after spending a few days with Stavia and we’ve been brainstorming... I’m rethinking the ove...

Re: How do I stop freaking out about this?

As a 4/4 who's also dealt with the shock, I get this on a visceral level. Many of us are familiar with the stages of grief (Elizabeth Kubler Ross) that accompany the knowledge that one is facing imminent death: anger, denial, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. In many ways, working trough the p...

Gene Therapy Trial for ApoE4 Homozygotes

The Department of Genetic Medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine would like to invite you to learn more about a gene therapy trial for individuals who are ApoE4/E4 and diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The gene therapy is comprised of an adeno-associated virus g...

Re: Google as Big Brother?

Hmm, add Facebook to the list of those being controlled by Big Pharma. :oops: While this isn't affecting us yet, (our facebook page is still #1 for an "ApoE4" search) I was recently made aware that many other alternative health focused groups have been affected. For instance, I joined a Fa...

Re: How TMAO Fooled Us

I've read many articles suggesting that Betaine HCL be taken before a meal. My own experience with it caused pain in my stomach. Interesting, Plumster. It kind of makes me wonder if you don't need it. Perhaps that pain is a signal that your stomach is acidic enough? Regardless, taking it after a me...

Re: UsAgainstAlzheimers report: non-pharmacological interventions

Good find, Fiver. One of my favorites is hosted by the Alzheimer's Drug Discovery group. They host a "Tools for PREVENTION" page (note the emphasis? ;)) called Cognitive Vitality where they examine the strength of evidence for multiple supplements, pharma, food & drink.

Re: How TMAO Fooled Us

Might be a different kind of betaine, HCL. Here's a study talking about the effect on stomach acidification. My understanding is that animal protein, especially, needs acid to be appropriately metabolized. Given that it's largely animal protein driving TMAO, I figure it might be helpful... along wit...

Re: Dr. Bredesen speaking on Sept. 10th?/Bay Area Meet up?

Thank you for that excellent summary, PSU I'm sorry that you ended up alone and that much of the info was a refresher... although even that can be motivating. I would also love to hear a talk for those of us already steeped in the protocol with all NEW information. I feel blessed to be working with ...

Re: How TMAO Fooled Us

So Sarah Ballantyne recommends moderate carbohydrate intake, 30 to 60% of total calories, from whole food sources. That has to nix any possibility of being on even a mild ketogenic diet. Do we have to choose between feeding our brains ketones vs. feeding our gut microbiomes carbs, including starchy...

Re: How TMAO Fooled Us

I just have a moment for a quick drive-by, but I encourage anyone who wants the low down on TMAO to read Susan's link to Sarah Ballantyne's article. It's very thoughtful; the best summary I've encountered so far. I'm also interested in the bile link. It makes so much sense given that TMAO is created...
