This prompted me to get genetic testing which revealed I am an ApoE 3/4, which in turn has motivated me to make some changes in my life. After reading Dr. Bredesen's book and the Sherzai's book, I feel very hopeful that I have control over many things that put me at a greater risk for developing AD myself.

I have to force myself not to act like a puppy chasing my tail because I am tempted to immediately try everything I read - change my fish oil to Nordic Naturals, change from tap water to Fiji water! Best of luck to you in this journey. I have found this website to be a fantastic resource with a lot of common sense info that fits my way of thinking.

For instance, my body doesn't do well with salmon, oats (or most grains but likes spelt), or avocado. I discovered this by going back through my journal and figuring out the pattern.
You may also want to consider working with a Health Coach to help you implement dietary changes. You'll find a list of coaches here: Health Coaches. A coach may be able to help you with your questions about what to eat and how to figure out the best diet for your unique body.
Keeping track and writing down is a new goal of mine. I've never wanted to accept that what I eat could be blamed for anything negative I was experiencing. Time to get off of that silly paradigm and see if I can find some correlations.
I noted the list of health coaches and didn't see any in the Southern California area listed. Did I miss something? Or are we all just so healthy here in SoCal that we don't need health coaches?
