Welcome, Alison!Alison wrote: Hi Bayside walker,
I live in metro San Diego area and just read the End of Alzheimer's book by Dale Bredesen. My husband is having short term memory loss and we're just getting started on options. We don't have a primary Doctor but have medicare and a good supplement. What Doctors have you found in our area? Any that are Functional Medicine practitioners? We'd like to work with an MD so our insurance would cover the costs. We have been currently been working with a great acupuncturist in Poway but costs are all our of pocket. I've downloaded the IMP practitioners list but I would prefer a referral.
Thanks for your help

I found Dr. Charles A. Moss by searching for "Bredesen practitioners in San Diego". He's located in La Jolla, off La Jolla Village Drive, and he is a certified Bredesen practitioner. I met with him in early December and we talked about my history and what he does. I found that the "personal note" from the WikiLeak link regarding pricing etc. are correct, and I also have Medicare with a supplement . He did spend considerable time with me and I purchased several recommended nutritional supplements from his office and set up testing appointments for a LOT of tests. One was able to be done in-office; others required timed responses and samples from home sent off; a few were off site locally. It takes a lot of time (2 months) from the initial appointment to the review appointment, which will be about a week from today. I've had to replace a couple of supplements. Instructions for some of the tests were initially confusing but I found the office staff VERY helpful in answering my questions.
My mother had Alzheimers, and my father had Parkinsons, perhaps coupled with Alzheimers; he passed away before that could be confirmed. I'm an only child but have a wonderful, supportive husband and two wonderful sons, who are following my journey with love and understanding. I'm lucky.
I've read Dr. Bredesen's book repeatedly (it's a lot to absorb) and have attempted to follow the Ketoflex 12/3 program closely. It's a challenge! I must also say that this site is really helpful and that the people here are responsive and understand our challenge and frustrations, as no one else really can.
Best of luck with your journey here -- I'm so grateful to find some fellow travelers and to feel that I am being proactive at last.
