Re: Tell my children or not?

So, those of us who are 4/4 and have not yet told our children who have not been tested, have yet another very important argument, for "telling", to consider. Agree,FC. From everything I've read, our genotype is at higher risk for COVID-19- especially when NOT controlling for risk factors...

Re: Reversing Alzheimer's Trial in Bay Area

Just musings, not a criticism of what Dr. Ornish is pursuing. It seems it should show some good results given the intimate dance between cardiovascular and brain health :D I appreciate your musings. :D FWIW, I suspect that Dr. Ornish has shown the success that he has in spite of the zero animal pro...

Re: Reversing Alzheimer's Trial in Bay Area

I admire the fact that Dr. Ornish has built enough evidence of the efficacy of his lifestyle approach for heart disease that it's covered by Medicare. That's exactly the direction we need to be moving with lifestyle protocols for cognitive decline. This needs to become reimbursable standard of care....

Re: Reversing Alzheimer's Trial in Bay Area

Really interesting, Plumster. Thank you for sharing. Dr. Ornish has trained under Dr. Bredesen. It looks like he’s generally using that same approach with a low fat, 100% plant based diet. This is one I’ll be watching!

Re: keto, weight loss, hunger

Julie - you and my doc know each other well. She does this work full-time, and she is devoted and brilliant. I feel lucky to have found her. Hi JD2020! I'm blessed to know many devoted and brilliant docs so I will just have to guess as to her identify. :D I also appreciate the additional detail. De...

Re: Raleigh company develops program to help prevent Alzheimer's

This was Dr. Bredesen's first company before he branched off to MPI, then on to AHNP, renamed Apollo Health. (Headspinning :shock:) They are still using his IP, called MEND, based on the first version of the Bredesen protocol focused on regaining metabolic health.

Re: keto, weight loss, hunger

I need more. I can't fit any more veggies in. A nice bowl of rice or pasta would be helpful, but I know that that is not ok on keto. I woke up in the middle of the night hungry, this morning starving. Dinner was over at 6:00 (bed at 9:00). I lost 3 pounds, and based upon prior weeks, it will take m...

Re: Confusing statement in Brinton paper about ketogenesis being harmful?

It sounds like if women continue with menopausal HRT they don't need to worry about being fat adapted, and if they don't continue with HRT and are fat adapted it could cause harm. Have any studies looked at whether being fat adapted as a lifestyle leads to "white matter degeneration and overpr...

Re: Tanzi and Bredesen

Waves, Tiramisu! I’m unclear as to why they would comment on each other’s posts. FWIW, they are very friendly and mutually admire the others’ perspectives. To date, Dr. Tanzi has focused exclusively on work in the lab whereas Dr. Bredesen has branched out and is now applying what he’s learned from t...
