alzheimers news-we are close now

by 2018 i might be able to start treatment with monthly infusions
of a new alzheimers drug
studies continue to show positive results
that will slow down the progression of alzheimers in my brain

if it had been available 10-20 years ago
i could have started then
when i was at the peak of my career as a doctor
even when i first started full time private practice at the age of 40

the time may be now when we can do something to
really slow down and prevent this disease

so what can you do
exercise may be the best prescription for right now
as well as
controlling your weight blood pressure cholesterol diabetes
do the other healthy things like diet sleep stress control
anxiety depression control stay mentally active socialize
watch the news for whats on the horizon
