these may help these watch out for



research shows that smoking a joint each day by an elderly person
may help
by decreasing the production of beta amyloid
increasing their appetite a real problem as the disease progresses
decreasing anxiety just look how laid back willie and snoop dog are
helping with sleep

instead of toking a joint using edibles would be healthier

then theres this research called the young blood
or the vampire research studies 
using young peoples blood on patients with alzhiemers

they seem to have something in their blood that improves memory

if you visit grandma and grandpa when you are younger you
better be careful when the full moon comes out
seriously there is a product in the blood that may be whats
causing this improvement
new studies are starting up soon using this young blood

this morning i saw a review of 10 things that can help you
prevent strokes
as i read down the list
i noted that those are the same things that are written about
preventing or slowing down the progression of alzheimers

control blood pressure diabetes cholesterol weight
eat correctly whats good for the heart is good for the brain
control anxiety depression
exercise dont just sit
stop and or dont smoke
mild alcohol intake
control heart disease risk factors

yes i said those things again and i plan on repeating them also

in the blog alzheimers reading room today

fyi its a great blog on alzheimers written by a son who is now
a researcher about caring for his mom with alzheimers but
also has almost a daily blog on something to do with alzheimers disease
it a blog you should follow if you want to stay updated on
whats happening in the alzheimers disease world

there are 5 signs to watch for in a family member or friend

if you think something is wrong then something is probably wrong
this is the most important one
that of course most of us ignore way too long
been there done that

problems walking with balance gait or falling

misuse of money credit cards or inability to balance a check book
this sign has financial consequences that bad people take advantage
i feel like what these bad people do to these old folks taking
advantage of them should qualify them for the death penalty

we see it all the time on the big signs on the interstate
elderly person cant be found is driving a ........
this one is significant as we as family members always it seems
wait too long
i hope to give up driving earlier than most do
my wife she has been told to take my keys away

anger fear paranoia or erratic behavior
if the person gets mean starts hiding things or starts seeing things
that arent there

uh oh my wife she has this problem now
just come over and look at our barn
things like lots of toilet paper toothpaste dressing etc
hoarded are abnormal
my wife she just hoards junk

then ask
what did you eat today

so remember
if there is appears to be something wrong theres something wrong

many families if they could do a do over would recognize this
earlier on and do something earlier

watch out for these signs
if you are young donate your blood
if your grandparents toke one every day dont be concerned
