I just read an article suggesting that alzheimer's brains may mistake plaques for bacteria...and then have an over reaction by the immune system(like one of those cyclo storms?) In which case...perhaps...i don't want to be giving proberry to my mother.  In any case...would have been nice to have known that 15 years ago when her brain was obviously going through some kind of terrible inflammation..so much that feeling the top of her head..you could feel a really fast strong pulse..and other reactions of overreaction...like the delirium one would get from a high fever..tho, she didn't have a fever.

Also, having frequent flu shots..i guessing this is an 0 blood problem..can activate the cycko storms in the brain,( besides actually maybe leaving live viruses in the brain), because the aluminum and mercury in the vaccine causes that overreaction of the immune system.  The author..Blaylock...says if you have to have a flu shot...do only one every six months to give time to immune system to recover.

So...should foods that stimulate the immune system be toned down when an 0 is sick? If aspirin shouldn't be taken when one has the swine flu...what about tumeric, for instance,..both are anti-inflammatory.

And is there anyone out there that can explain to me, again...or lead me to the discussion where it explains why those storms..i can't spell that word for the life of me, happen. What happens to the body when the storm occurs..and why?

Are you saying that this condition could be an auto-immune condition?

Genotype diet is designed to decrease the risk of the genes actually exposing themselves.


The first 9 months ( the womb) has a lot to do with our future health.

The Sydney line on the palm holds some key to a predictor of future mental health.

If you google Sydney line you will see how much has been written about this.

I just read the obituaries in the local paper this morning.  A friend of mine died at age 59.  He was diagnosed with Alzheimerís in his early 50ís.  I bumped into his wife and daughter at a local event 3 weeks ago.  She told me he was in a nursing home.  His wifeís parents were friends of my parents.  His daughter and my son are the same age and went to school together and were on the swim team together.  I was the Meet Director.   It always seemed that when my son was finally in a race, someone would ask me a question and Iíd miss his results.  Tom would come up to me and whisper how Darryl did so when my son asked me, I knew.  He was an accountant for 20 years, and then taught at the local Jr College.

Hi,

is there any "chance" that the diet stops the terrific decline ?

Do you mean after a person is in full-blown alzheimers?  Or when they are first diagnosed?  I think it's tough to reverse a disease when it has already taken over a person's life and has them on a downward spiral.  However, eating the best foods for ones' genotype will improve the quality of life, no matter what we are dealing with.

At the beginning of the disease, I believe that the correct diet and protocols can definitely slow the progression and lighten the symptoms.

As far as an elder person who wants to slow aging and prevent the onset of disease, the genotype diet shines like the sun!

thanks Victoria

my father... it is the beginning... he is therapeutist... his father died after 15 years with Alzheimer... he knows the symptoms and used to deny things that disturb him, suppress his freedom... He is 70yo...
We met last friday... I was stressed by the business... he felt my disturbance and... I recognized my grand-father...

My father does not want to do the measurments... He has decided he is Gatherer... He does not want to comply 100%, thinking it is impossible, stupid, and anti-social...

On my own side, I am not sure... addiction with coffee ... similar behaviour when stopping or under very high stress...
I am switching from BTD to GTD... (and more vegetables that can grow in my garden !) ... I hope to stay healthy enough so I can help my old parents...

My father also had alzheimers.  I understand many things about how you feel.  

It's one of the strong motivators for me to take care of my own body with the highest level of compliance I am capable of.

My deepest sympathy. My father passed away aged 63, as a result of this maladie, after suffering for 7 or 8 years.
You need to be strong, to be able to handle what is comming, and at the same time, understanding, to deal with erratic and out of character behaviour, without taking it personally. A sufferer of Alzheimer's needs help, and no criticism.
I am with you in your pain.

Thanks ...

... A O family... I do not know for my Grand-father but Dad is O- ; no flu shot, never...
My Grand father was a commercial engineer, and always travelling to sell cheeses. Smoker, he decided to stop after a 1st stroke. When retiring, he decided to spend time doing nothing ; that engaged the spiral... when he started to have physical activities again, it was too late... and not enough... with bad diet of course...
Beginning at 60 and ending at 74 with a 2nd stroke.

My father has kept himself healthier : no-smoker, always sports (todays, playing golf every morning), intellectual activities... but bad diet... worse everyday because he managed hypoglicemia with grains (wheat family and rice).
Now I can read the past events, I think it started in 2001... heaviest year in the family's story, so much shame for him...

Insidious disease... so easy to end with it...

I must stop now, my pain is not the subject of the thread.

Thanks again and bye.

I am so very sorry, and wish the best for you and your family.  

I came upon this thread looking for advice on flu shots for type O.  Could someone point me toward Dr. D's advice on flu shots?

Thank you, and all good wishes to all of us reading.
