Thank you for posting this information Theresa. I am a newcomer so I just found it.

I am wondering if you know if more information about the traumatic type has been published and where. Is there an update to the book in the works?

There is an update to the book in the works, I don't know the contents it will cover other than I've heard it will address how to practice the protocol. Also, to my knowledge there is no release date yet, last I heard was a tentative around the first of the year.

I think what he is referring to with the traumatic type is referring to traumatic brain injuries.

Great to hear about the support for coffee - I personally enjoy one MUG per day (organic and responsibly sourced) and usually drink it between 10-11 am. I am also careful to be sure I eat something beforehand (coffee is very acidic). I start my day with warm water with freshly squeezed organic lemon, a half of teaspoon of glycine and a high quality Vitamin C powder (Vitality C by American Nutriceuticals, LLC).

Will Bredesen's next book highlight the importance of the TYPE of coffee and what people should (or shouldn't) add to it? I know there is a good amount of information out there about coffee and mold, so I'm wondering if he'll also bring this to light even more.

I am trying to wean myself from using any sweeteners (I currently use Monkfruit or Stevia - they are organic/whole leaf) and a coconut creamer (with no guar gum). However, this is a huge improvement from the extra sugar and cream that I used to order daily from Dunkin' years ago!

I used to drink caffeine all day...I joked, truthfully, that I could drink a Monster energy drink half an hour before bed and sleep all night through. I saw no difference with or without caffeine. I took green tea diet pills pretty much daily.

When I started tracking my deep sleep and REM I found out that although I might be asleep my body wasn't doing what it needed to keep my brain sharp. 12 minutes of deep sleep wasn't gonna cut it in the long run & there's no telling what damage I did to my poor brain.

I have cut out all energy drinks, the green tea pills and only drink tea in the morning for breakfast. My body handles caffeine so well I didn't even get a headache when I stopped cold turkey. Soooo...I think we may sleep like logs but our brains are also logs :-)

Thanks for the quick response TheresaB.

I was implying traumatic brain injuries as well. I am curious how a classification of this type can be made, other than history. What type of tests are helpful and what markers are being looked at. I'll keep looking to see if he will provide more info in the future, it would be very helpful.
