Any Virginia Beach Peeps?

Hi friends! Stavia and I are planning to meet in Virginia Beach for a few days of catch up. If anyone is around on Tuesday, 9/17, let us know. We'd love to meet up and share a walk, a cup of coffee or a bite to eat. :D

Re: Blue Zones vs Modern Hunter Gatherer Zones

It would be interesting to list commonalities between Blue Zone diets/lifestyles and modern hunter gatherer diets/lifestyles, but I'm too tired.

Yes, lots of commonalities! I found this to be very relevant for us. Thanks for sharing.

Re: The 'selfish brain' is regulated by aquaporins and autophagy under nutrient deprivation

Regarding the study you linked, I truly wonder whether these results are transposable to what would happen in the context of a reasonable dry fasting/intermittent drinking protocol for 2 reasons: - I'm pretty confident with the fact that there exists an adaptation period to intermittent drinking. I...

Re: Calling all Alzheimer's Activists!

So many have shared terrific ideas! A few have commented about the need to distinguish this campaign from the information put out by the Alzheimer's Association. I strongly agree! FWIW, the Alzheimer's Association's perspective on "prevention" has evolved over the years with the evidence. ...

Re: Fascinating podcast on APOE4 and keto diet

That thread seems very self-referential, perhaps you meant this thread? Only because I merged the topics. They used to be separate. Thanks for the additional link to the NYT's article thread. I listened to this yesterday and found it to be very informative. Tommy Woods knows his stuff and has clear...

Re: The 'selfish brain' is regulated by aquaporins and autophagy under nutrient deprivation

Do you mean increase the viscosity? YES! :? Thanks for the correction. I don't know if it answers the issue of blood viscosity but dehydration should increase vasopressin and oxytocin which seem to produce vasodilatation in the brain. Cerebral vasodilatation would be a good thing, but I worry that ...

Re: Experiences with Low Dose Naltrexone

Not sure if this has been mentioned in this thread, but a potentially important comment was made at Medscape about being on LDN in the event of injury or surgery that might require opioids. Could pose problems? Yep, and it happened to me just as I was starting my LDN journey. I was violently hit by...

Re: The 'selfish brain' is regulated by aquaporins and autophagy under nutrient deprivation

Welcome zc_hi! Interesting concept. In terms of the ApoE4 allele, a reduction in cerebral vascularization is the first manifestation of our pathology. Newer (mouse) research shows that it's neutrophils that actually stick to the capillaries in the brain which cause the reduction in flow. With that u...

Re: Calling all Alzheimer's Activists!

What do the connected circles represent? LOL, nothing. :lol: It was a free logo generator and that was my only "brain" option. I just wanted to see what a logo for this idea could look like. Still in brain storming mode. I encourage anyone who has a name/logo idea to do the same and snap ...
