Hola! Good evening to everyone from Lima, Peru :)

Finally we have a provider in South America as well. I found Dr Gupta on the IFM website and have already had the first consult with him for my mother's advanced cognitive decline. He has a very impressive resume and is from the Harvard School of Public Health (I think he has a clinic in the U.S. as well). He was very compassionate and took a lot of time explaining us the diet, supplements and tests. We had never heard of this thing called ApoE4 until last week - unfortunately awareness about this disease is still very poor in South America. If a doctor says "you have Alzheimer's" it's usually a death sentence. Dr Gupta is also helping my husband with his IBS. From what I can see so far, he is a very well-rounded Functional Medicine doctor. I'm going to recommend him highly to a lot of people!
Here's his website: https://www.dr-gupta.com/

addendum by slacker (moderator): Dr Gupta's website indicates that his primary practice is in Boston.

Welcome to our friend in Peru!

I did see your post in September, and am sorry no one welcomed you! I added Dr. Gupta back then to our list of practitioners, ApoE4-Aware Healthcare Practitioners, since he also practices in Boston and New Delhi and is multi-lingual! I hope you continue to find his support helpful.

In case you're looking for more sources of support and information, here are some links to what Mike was suggesting:
The Wiki Table of Contents is a great source for lots of background information and deep dives into topics related to ApoE 4.

A new area, How-to tips for this site has lots of helpful hints and step-by-step directions for finding information, posting topics, following a topic and quoting others so they see you replied to them.

Finally, the Primer is by our own multi-lingual, far-away 4/4 Dr. Stavia, a woman with wise counsel and kind advice.

Best wishes for a wonderful summer in Peru!

Sí, ella está mucho mejor después de 6 meses. El protocolo requiere disciplina e inversión. Mi error fue que intenté hacerlo yo mismo y estaba usando suplementos baratos de Amazon. Si intentas ahorrar dinero, no va a funcionar. Se necesita un enfoque profesional.

Hola. Quiero contarte mi historia. Mi madre ha estado sufriendo esta enfermedad desde hace varios años y los médicos nos dijeron que era un callejón sin salida. Sin embargo, encontré el libro del Dr. Bredesen y decidí probar el protocolo por mi cuenta. Compré suplementos de Amazon e hice la dieta estrictamente por un año. Desafortunadamente, no funcionó y me desanimé bastante.

El año pasado una amiga me refirió al Dr. Gupta. Decidí que "cutting corners" no iba a funcionar, así que seguí su plan Advanced. Mi madre ahora está mucho mejor, su puntuación de MoCA ha mejorado de 10 a 18 en aproximadamente 6 meses. Ella sigue mejorando y estoy muy agradecida de haber elegido este camino. Qué plan elegiste, andresalva? Mi experiencia es que la calidad de los suplementos importa mucho.

Hola Assintperu. Muchas gracias por compartir tu experiencia. Realmente tenemos mucha esperanza y expectativas de que veamos mejoras con la enfermedad de mi tía. Ya tenemos los exámenes listos y seguramente tendremos la próxima semana la primera cita. Quisimos iniciar con el plan básico para darnos una idea del protocolo, pero entiendo que el tema de los suplementos es vital. Entonces seguramente, en función de las recomendaciones migremos hacia el plan con los suplementos. Les estaré contando como evoluciona mi tía.
