alzheimers news-a physicians personal connection


Alzheimer's Texas

a few weeks ago i gave this presentation below to a large group of folks
on alzheimers disease

i explained the theory of what causes alzheimers disease
i told my story of how i was diagnosed
i went through all the testing that someone should have if they have
memory loss
i went through all the testing that is done in the large study i am in
i reviewed the alzheimers graph
i reviewed the new treatment studies that show promise for treating
or if we are lucky curing alzheimers disease
many of you who read this blog qualify for these studies
i reviewed things folks could do to prevent or slow down the disease
i reviewed what i was doing that i think made my memory return to
i reviewed sources to get information on clinical studies no matter
where you live

i also answered a ton of questions on alzheimers

one point i made was this
if someone could tell you that you have cancer would you like to know

if you then had cancer and was offered a new treatment for it that was
promising to work
would you do it

yes i think most of you would

if someone could tell you that you might have alzheimers
and if so
there was a new possible treatment for it
most sad to say would not jump for that chance

how do i know
because that time has arrived now
people arent or wont sign up for these clinical studies that offer
treatment promising treatment if the tests show they have alzheimers

i myself am begging bugging folks to get on these treatment studies
since i see how important the potential is for these new drugs

to find out more on all this watch this video
of my presentation

next week i will write on the
mend protocol
which is the regimen that i am following
either this regimen or the aricept (donepezil) has made my memory
return to normal
