Thanks, Maureen. I've just registered. Listening to Dr. Bredesen speak always inspires me.
ApoE 4/4 - When I was in 7th grade, my fellow students in history class called me "The Brain" because I had such a memory for detail. I excelled at memorization and aced tests. This childhood memory helps me cope!

Dale Bredesen's research has opened the door to a new therapeutic approach for patients with Alzheimer disease. On March 15, Dr. Bredesen will offer a new explanation for the erosion of memory seen in Alzheimer disease at the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine.

I just registered too. The talk will be live-streamed tomorrow morning @ 7AM EST and a repeat at 10AM EST. (The talk is free.) Apparently, if you pay $10 you get an additional 30 min. discussion between Dr. Bredesen and Dr. Hyman. I'll pay and take notes for all ;).

Excellent lecture- very hopeful. There's lots about ApoE4. It's supposedly available for free from Noon EST for 24 hours. I'll share more when I receive a copy of slides, etc.

Awesome presentation and he made a very very complex issue easier to understand with the slides. I would recommend every body listen to the lecture and buy the slides. It not only gives you a good explanation of "why" you get MCI/AD, but how the model can be used to understand other disease processes. As a functional medicine guy, that is the key. It is not good enough to just treat symptoms, you need to ask why. This goes for issues in medicine as simple as a common cold all the way up to cancer, heart disease, and AD. I am impressed with his enthusiasm to help our community and to really address the Apoe4 issues specifically.

I just watched the presentation; pretty sobering to see the broad impact of e4. I don't believe I had a full grasp of the global metabolic impact it has on us until now. Again..sobering.

Dr Bredesen does a great job illustrating the e4 story - fascinating actually - and it all suddenly makes so much more sense to me: the elevated hsCRP, homocysteine, LDL-P, (in my case anyway) and so on. As a 4/4 I found it a bit overwhelming; SO many balls to keep in the air, you know? But his very positive message, backed up by a thoughtful strategy/methodology that HAS worked in a small sample at least, IS very hopeful. And I know that many here have seen similar success with the doc's program. Going to sleep on next steps...I have lots to work on..

I thought excellent and it reinforced our focus with Dr. Gundry on keeping inflammation very low as this is a strength/weakness of ApoE4. Strength when fighting bugs & a weakness for aging well. Julie is Mend v3.0 published anywhere like v1.0 is?

Unfortunately, no. Like with Dr. Gundry, his treatment is evolving based upon his clinical research. Things have gotten immensely more complicated with the advent of the CIRS (chronic inflammatory inflammation syndrome) signature found to be driving not only Type 3, but Types 1, 1.5 & 2 as well. That being said, V1 is still the cornerstone for treatment and prevention. Later today, I may be able to reveal more information about HOW to access his program…
