Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy E4 Women

Another way to look at a list that might work for you isn't to think of the items as guarantees, but ones that may really help protect and won't hurt. This makes specific diets and hormone therapies hard to place on the list, because of the potential downsides to them. However, if you make a custom ...

Primates and 4/4

My understanding is that all primates are ApoE4/4, but, I have read (sorry have no link!) that their ApoE4 *acts like* ApoE3. Now wouldn't it seem this should be a critical angle of research? But I see little of it. My thinking is that they sleep well, exercise all the time, eat loads of plant veget...

Meditation and Gene Expression

Very cool ... Mindfulness meditation downregulates inflammatory genes. This can only be good for our brains. "...meditators experienced genetic changes following mindfulness practice that were not seen in the non-meditating group after other quiet activities — an outcome providing proof of prin...

Exercise and ApoE4

This combined with the new information about sleep being important for clearing amyloid gives us two powerful tools to assist with brain protection.

Re: Stories of Older ApoE4s That Don't Get AD, At Least Not

I can occasionally see small lapses, certainly couldn't be classified as even mild MCI- things like searching for a word, etc. I haven't had time to try to reconstruct my long post. Helping my mom downsize drastically. Stuff everywhere! Anyway, I read that one of the things they consider when dx me...

Stories of Older ApoE4s That Don't Get AD, At Least Not Yet

My maternal grandmother and great-aunt both had AD. My grandmother began symptoms in her 60s, my great-aunt maybe in her 80s. I assume I got my one ApoE4 from my mother. My mother is now 80 and I don't see any signs of even MCI, yet she's eaten the SAD her whole life and barely exercised. She has al...

Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy E4 Women

Then there's estriol, supposedly a weaker estrogen with benefits, but plenty of sites to poo-poo it too. My OB/GYN puts estriol in all her BHRT blends, as well as a smaller amount of estradiol. She also seems to feel strongly that estrogen is good for cognition, but says the science is mixed as to w...

Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy E4 Women

Thanks, good to collect these in one place. The Wiki page would be another good place. I'm in over my head helping my mom downsize, so I can't peruse these in detail, but I wonder ... can they be summarized in terms of degree of significance of the results? One I glanced at looked like just a 1-2 ye...

Re: Flu Shot

Thanks for all this feedback. Spunky, does B12 help protect against flu? I assume that's why you mention it. Good idea to just take other pathways to flu protection :-)
