Re: would hsv vaccines make AD rare?

Zostavax is live, but Shingrix is dead. I did Zostavax several years ago when it was the only shingles vaccination available. People who have had Zostavax are encouraged to also do Shingrix; however, if you have the Shingrix vaccine, I don't know if it's necessary or advisable to also have Zostavax....

Re: would hsv vaccines make AD rare?

My mother-in-law, who was at least a 3/4 and possibly a 4/4, had shingles. After the outbreak, she began showing signs of AD and was subsequently diagnosed with it. Although she also had problems sleeping, she managed other lifestyle factors pretty well, particularly exercise. I got the Zostavax vac...

Re: Dr. Gabriel Lyon - Benefits of High Protein

Just to report, life has been off the tracks due to responsibilities for others, so I really haven't been focused on hitting Dr. Lyon's leucine targets at all. Given exercise is what promotes the valuable growth factor benefits of mTOR and IGF-1, even if these are higher from exercise alone, I may ...

Re: Helping parents and other relatives

My mother refused to listen when she was diagnosed with Alzheimer's three years ago, after having obvious memory and cognitive problems for five years before that. She exploded angrily at the neurologist who gave her the diagnosis, and my sister-in-law was present for the tirade. The neurologist tol...

Re: Sleep!

I am just finishing Satchin Panda's book, The Circadian Code . As noted in other posts, I've had a problem for several months waking up around 2 a.m. and not being able to (easily) get back to sleep. Panda lists the main causes of fragmented sleep as: ⋅ Dehydration ⋅ Ambient temp...

Re: Diet confusion

That is an article about a study without a link to the actual study. And without being able to read the actual study, the article means nothing. Good point. I should probably have referenced books on this subject instead, such as Valter Longo's The Longevity Diet and Dan Buettner's The Blue Zones ....

Re: Diet confusion

Can someone explain to me why animal protein is considered bad here? There are several locations around the world where people live longer, healthier lives than most. These are called "Blue Zones." One of the defining dietary characteristics of people living in Blue Zones is low consumpti...

Re: Change in Bredesen practitioner access MPI website

As far as what happens if you want to sign up to work with a physician, I'm clueless. Does anybody else know? Could that be where the $75 per month comes in? I signed up for the ReCODE Report (MPI Cognition) website last September, before the AHNP acquisition. It required a 12-month commitment of $...
