Re: What is Alzheimer's Disease from the Soul's perspective?

(((CarrieS))) I'm so sorry for your loss. You speak so eloquently about the lessons your son lived and gifts he brought to you. I also lost my first child... and will be forever changed by his brief time with me. “We’re all just walking each other Home.” - Ram Dass So beautiful and true! Thanks for ...

Re: Notes from WAF 2018

The cynic in me says where is the profit in the early prevention message... I sadly agree. Much of the messaging has traditionally comes from large advocacy organizations like the Alzheimer's Association. "Alzheimer's can't be prevented" has been their tagline since I began my E4 journey ...

Re: New Paper: Shanghai Aging Study

Good find, Russ! This adds evidence to an emerging cholesterol/AD story that seems to point to high mid-life cholesterol as being a risk factor for AD; whereas higher levels appear to be protective as seniors age. You can read a good summary here. FWIW, I suspect that higher LDL seems to protect sen...

Re: Max Lugavere Talk: TEDx Venice Beach

Indywoman, thank you for taking the time to expound. I agree that the use of precise language is so important in this arena so as not to provide false hope. Your comments are very timely for me as I’m preparing for a panel discussion to be held at the World Alliance meeting in SFO focused on Healthc...

Re: Max Lugavere Talk: TEDx Venice Beach

Interesting discussion! Indywoman, aside from overstating the prevention angle, I’d appreciate if you would share a few other missteps from your perspective. I often find myself tripping on semantics using words like “prevention” vs. “reducing risk” or “delaying onset.” I looked into other like-mind...

Re: Qs re: homocysteine-lowering vitamins

SGW811, I'll add a few thoughts to the mix. Your folate supplementation is a bit low. 800mcg is a typical starting point for those trying to lower homocysteine... unless otherwise indicated. Also, how is your Omega-3 status? NONE of the B vitamins work without adequate Omega-3 support.

Re: Attia Dayspring and Feldman Podcasts

I finally had a chance to listen. I had the distinct advantage of listening to the entire Attia/Dayspring series first so had a very clear idea of the non-specific nature of remnant lipids. Very juicy for a long time lipidphile :D. IMHO, Attia came across as both condensing and collegial at times. H...
