YAY, Carrie!!! I want to be at your Meet Up!! Fascinated by fermentation and could use some instruction. I made kefir for awhile but couldn't keep up with the demands of those kefir grains....

Carrie, I'm also very excited to learn more about fermentation. The more I learn about probiotics, the are a very short term "fix." Fermented food is the real deal.
Do you recommend that I post a time (and time zone!) first, before getting “the keys to get started”? Shall I wait until I hear from more people?
My hope is that if we do one, it will get the ball rolling.

An estimated headcount (just for this first one) might be helpful. Post a date & time and you get the keys :D.

I'd be very interested in this! I've always wanted to learn how to make my own fermented foods. :D

Hi, everyone,

I'm new to the group and new to the idea of being EPOEe4. What a bomb blast that was, although I shouldn't have been much surprised. My father and all five of his siblings slid into dementia in their late 70s, very early 80s. Eight of my cousins (four on each side) went on the same sleigh. I will soon be 84 and ever the optimist, decided I was past the threat.

I live in Seattle and think it would be great if there were enough around here to have an actual meetup, but I'm happy the virtual deal is getting off the ground.

Cheerio, Allie

Hi AliBlue2,

Welcome to the APOE4 community! Glad you have joined us. It can definitely take a bit of getting used to knowing your APOE4 status. But I think as you are proving with such a large family history of dementia, that genes are not your destiny. And you may have other genes that could be protective. I think there is so much more we need to learn in this area.

That being said, at 84 you seem to be doing well. You must be doing something right! :D I think that is an interesting idea to have meetups.

If you are interested in learning more I would explore the Primer because it contains alot of useful information.

And thank you for sharing some of your family history. Many members also tell their story in the Our Stories forum so please feel free to share more of your background with us.

Hi K8flan--There is a whole collection of different threads for Meet-ups in different areas--you can look here.
Were you looking for a Meet-up in a specific geographical area? If you don't see one in your area, you can start a new topic and see if there are others in your area that may want to join you.

Hi JML!
Thank you for your reply!
First, How is Chicago? I went to School at Marquette and used to frequent the Chicago Milwaukee world much more frequently than of late. I am also very excited to see your a Coach with FMCA. A program I am about to get serious with. I just missed the February deadline. Also coll to see there is a Certificate for Reversing Cognitive Decline for Coaches. Was wondering about that but haven't reached anyone live to inquire. If you have a moment I would love to talk to you about the whole program.

I stumbled on my APOE4/4 status by pure coincidence on a 23&Me test in 2015. I ran into two ladies in Albany, NY at a Lecture who were wonderful and I put there info in my phone then proptly lost their info when dropping the phone in water... The wanted to do a meet up of sorts. I am currently in Rochester, NY Moved back to do the Elder Care thing. Both Parents have passed. both did not have AD but one had NPH and Parkinsons and Mom, Type 1 Diabetes (since diagnosis at 14 in 1937 ) she lived a great life till 86 and had more vascular dementia and died sadly from Nursing home mishap and medication mis management, which I see far too frequently.

I am just getting started on my prevention protocol and looking for a good program to get my cognoscopy under way.
I do travel to Cleveland Clinics new FM Clinic, about 4 hour drive. Love Love LOve the FM Model. My Dad was a Physician and Mom a Medical Researcher and I discovered a love of science late in the game so looking to take my Corporate Technology Innovation mind and pivot to one of Coaching/Facilitating and Helping in Healthcare fields. Not sure what all that looks like but I do need a sharper focus program for myself. I am Autoimmune Thyroid, Hashimoto, Brother and Sister both had thyroid out never autobody tested. Mom and her brother and Sister Type 1 Diabetics diagnosed in the 1930's Mom's Mom Aggressive RA and all the girls on my Mom's side have everything from Lupus to Celiac to RA to Diabetes Graves, etc. SO That is my story. I have not had too much luck finding great FM resources in Rochester, NY Love Mark Hyman MD have done several of his programs when he launches them.

I have a new chapter opening for me a in planning mode for what that looks like,

Do you have any recommendations on arterna associated with the Apollo Health group for full assessment and protocol advancement and support on the ReCode plan and initial Cognoscpy. I know I am type 1.5 with Insulin Resistance and Inflammation being my top two but need to continue drilling down for specifics on biomarkers as I think I am a bit unique on genetics.

Thank You!
Spring is Almost here!!

Kate
