Re: Thank-you and Hello!

Welcome to the Community cbouillet! It sounds like you and your sister have co-created a plan that is working great for your mother. It's hard but what a blessing to be able to care for and enjoy your Mom at this time of her life. Dr. Bredesen's book has indeed provided hope for Alzeheimer's. Great ...

Re: Era of Genetic Selection has Begun

"Now, if we could eliminate the risk of developing Alzheimer's without also eliminating the evolutionary benefits of the E4 allele, I'd be interested! But most genetic manipulation cannot (yet) be fine tuned to that degree." I agree with you Wondering as I was thinking the same thing myself.

Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy E4 Women

Why do we so want well-designed studies to give us cut and dry support for e4s using 'distilled' bioidentical estrogen (well for starters reliable interventions are welcome for sure) when systems biology keeps teaching us that context matters? I wonder if an analysis of native diets with respect to...

Re: And now, back to the gut and AD

I've been eating a large variety of fermented foods for the last year and a half (homemade kraut, kimchee, pickles, kefir water, miso, etc.). I haven't had my stool tested yet but one of my students had his tested a couple of months after starting to create and eat his own ferments (which include yo...

Re: Broken Brain Dr. Mark Hyman's Documentary

Carrie, how do you dehydrate the green plantains? I have an Excalibur dehydrator that I use to dry the rounds with (be sure to take off the peels before dehydrating). I dry them overnight between 115 and 125°. I pulverize the dried rounds in a mini food processor (magic bullet type) and then screen...

Re: Broken Brain Dr. Mark Hyman's Documentary

[quote="alysson"] For resistant starch, I also eat sweet potatoes (steamed, then cooled) and tigernuts. I'll have to try glucomannan again. It's one of the grossest foods I've ever put in my mouth, but 1/2 tsp provides 2 grams of fiber. Dr. Christianson recently posted an article titled 30...

Re: Welcome!!!

I think that my mother knew that she was descending into AD but she seemed to fight it along the way. Her mother had AD so it seemed to me that this was her worst nightmare so acknowledging any memory problems just wasn't going to happen with her. She was never "one of those people" when w...
