welcome to the organic green doctor blog

i am a family physician who was diagnosed with
early mild cognitive impairment(mci) amnestic type on december 21, 2010
this is a precursor to alzheimers disease
because of this diagnosis i have opted to stop practicing medicine
this blog will be about my journey with this disease
please feel free to follow me along this path
i will continue blogging on organic gardening, green living,
solar power, rainwater collection, and healthy living
i will blog on these plus other things noted to be interesting

my things

since i have retired i have my things that i like to
be involved in and promote
habitat for humanity volunteering
meals on wheels delivery
giving advise-doing this one is cheap-
on medicine
organic of course
rainwater collection
xeric gardening
solar power
setting up a small garden
recycling things
sports especially football and basketball
alzheimers diesease
anything that will promote awareness of this disease

so this weekend i get to do three of these things

this am if the ice doesnt cancel it
i will be representing the alzheimers association at a volunteers fair
at sun city in georgetown texas
i get to wear purple and talk about alzheimers research
alzheimers programs available in this area
the walks to end alzheimers and more

this is a subject i can talk on all day long if someone will listen

then on saturday morning my wife she and i go to an
annual conference luncheon in dallas at ut southwestern
for those of us who volunteer our bodies to be researched on
there we get to hear whats going on at the research center
and whats going on nationally

i usually know most of whats going on since i keep up
with all the alzheimers research nationally

one of the upcoming research studies involves giving one of
the new alzheimers vaccine that removes the bad gooey
beta amyloid from the brain
it starts soon
im one year too young but attempts are being made to
get me into this one

the secret in the future will be to start treatment as early as possible
even before symptoms start
those studies are going on now here in the us and elsewhere

i usually learn something since the researchers are all there
talking about their research studies

i go slightly south of dallas and meet with a professor at
a large university who is putting a rainwater collection
system on her barn
the water to be used in her garden and maybe to water her horses
and trees
she has access to water but its restricted because of
water restrictions in the area

i do look forward to infecting her with the rainwater
collection virus
she may not know how contagious it is even though she
is a biologist
there is no vaccine or cure known so far

she has 3 tanks to hook up
ive warned her that she needs to plan for more since
those tanks will fill up real fast

its hard for a rainwaterer to sit and watch the water
run over out of the tanks or over the gutters
you see
there is only one cure
more tanks

hopefully with these three events this weekend
i can spread the word
end alzheimers now
save the rain

  1. Wish we had known you were coming to G-town. Would have come.

    1. the event was canceled because of the ice. it will be held in october

  2. Love HfH!
    I was the resource developer for HfH South Africa when we hosted the Jimmy Carter Work project in Durban and built 100 houses in a week
    Also had the pleasure of joining him and other volunteers in NY and Plains for the 2000 build

    1. hfh is a great organization
      its worth the work volunteering to see the new owners when they get their new homes
