this helps this doesnt, wtea, let him pitch first

im always looking for reasons to drink more caffeine
the problem is it interferes with my sleep because the
aricept (donepezil) i take for my mild cognitive impairment
does the same thing and the two together can make my
sleep hours go down significantly

in a recent study patients with mild cognitive impairment who
drank a large about of caffeine a day did not progress to dementia
where as those who didnt drink caffeine had an increased rate of
development of dementia

heck even in transgenic mice (whatever that means) they showed the
same thing

so for me itll be a pot of coffee in the am and good dark sees 
chocolate candy for lunch and just hope i sleep at night
maybe thatll ward off the dementia

then theres omega 3
its found in fish chicken avocado nuts soy leafy green vegetables
and some fruits

one author claims that the incidence of dementia could be reduced
by 70%-thats what he claims
but it looks like that a diet with increased omega 3 may definitely 
slow down the progression of dementia

apparently omega 3 reduces the amount of beta amyloid in the blood
thats the sticky substance that forms plaques in the brain that may 
be the culprit in alzheimers disease

then what doesnt help with dementia or alzheimers is hospitalization 
admit them and their chances of getting worse or dying increases

even institutionalizing an alzheimers patient makes them worse
and increases the chances of things going down hill

granted thats the normal progression of the disease 
when some one is institutionaled usually they have gotten worse already 
put them in the hospital and they get worse

so drink lots of coffee and eat a lot of avos and fish and nuts and 
dont let them put you in the hospital and your dementia will be
slowed down 

its getting close to walk to end alzheimers time in your area
you can go to the alzheimers associations website  to find a walk 
near where you live

join a team or form your own team and raise money to help 
fight this devastating disease


join my team or donate to my team at 
the organicgreendoctor.com team website

we need your help 


the fans voted the mets r a dickey to be the starting pitcher in
the upcoming mlb all star game
the problem is he is a knuckleballer and throws this mean pitch
that is unpredictable and is hard for a catcher to catch as he
really doesnt know where the ball is going
the manager is thinking of not starting him but to use him in a
special situation
which means he wont pitch

i say let him pitch so we can see it for ourselves
after all its the all star game you guys
this may be a reason to watch the game this year
