alzheimers news-alzheimers disease fact sheet

Image result for organicgreendoctor
the national institute on aging or nia published this fact sheet on alzheimers disease which is linked here
a few blogs ago i posted a research study that wrote something similar to this but i think this is a better source of information

here are the topics covered

you can click on each topic to read the topic or click here to read the whole bulletin
also there is a good video under the what causes alzheimers disease topic that is 4 minutes long called 
how alzheimers changes the brain

there is a section that explains the alzheimers genetics like the apoe 4 gene that i have that is called the late onset alzheimers gene

if you or your loved ones gets this diagnosis its important for you and your family to learn as much as you can about the disease and how to manage it medically and socially
this bulletin may help some

consider getting involved with your local alzheimers walks

here is the information on my team organicgreendoctor that will walk in this years santa barbara walk to end alzheimers
the opening ceremony and closing ceremony will be virtual
so anyone can watch it online
each individual member will walk in their neighborhood or favorite hiking trail wearing their purple alzheimers shirts for the 2-3 mile walk 
this is the safest way to do the walk this year
please wear your mask and keep a good social distance from others
hopefully next year we can all be live

join us wherever you live for our walk this year

you can donate and or join our team organicgreendoctor 
at this link
then walk in your own neighborhood the morning of the walk to honor those lost in our families to this disease and to those who are affected now by this disease

we need your support

the organicgreen doctor
