Quoted from Lola

Strawberry, our gut is in fact known as the second brain.

Heal the gut first and follow your guidelines.....nothing beats a healthy digestive and ecosystem


I agree very much with Lola here

Alzheimers::: I might propose for all type diets here, that one place VEGAN Joe might have advantages.. in the eating of more colorful foods and veggies.. I am seldom experimenting with new veggies.  They may be the key we are missing.  I have converted from putting my meat on my plate first  - to adding it last.  Veggies first - makes a difference.  I also cut food much smaller then I used to and if I am in the mood I chew much slower.  

BUT VG.. you might be a good candidate for doing some experiment.  Your PSA was elevated, how high? what did you eat? Then It went down, what did you eat? .. interesting.. then you came here and aggravated your self into discussions that go against your 'thinking' convictions..(leanred experiences)  .. then, you where or where not compliant.. and the PSA went up .. not surprising..

SO< Some day I would love for you to chart everything you eat, for the good of a clear examination of your own.. experiment .. then take the test again, for specific learing.. and see where you are still doing damage to you..   I have been charting my food for some time on and off and I can see many differences when I eat wrong..or right..

In your case the other question I have is this.. what is the most prevalent issue health wise in your grandparents, and parents.. by now they would be showing health issues, as you all grow older.. those are the true issues you are interested in.  Your health is Johnny come lately, theirs is your future.. so look and then share what you learn.. Nothing would please me more then you understanding the GENETIC connections, and then work toward prevention.. (if you where 20 then prevention in your prodigy would be more important, but for that it is to late?!)

For instance, I have Cancer and a great Brain in moms genes.. and diabetes and brain issues (slowing) in dads genes..(when I was 50, I figured out that I follow dads.. to my utter surprise!!)  So now, when I eat, I try to eat the fruits that are known to help with dads issues and veggies that will help with moms..  in that way I might prevent as much as I can from either side, and by eating as a nonnie - I am taking my own individuality into account and underline my own expectations - health WISE . By alleviating hunger issues with providing protein in it's purest form, so that I don't eat the refrigerator doors before finding food within it.  You see 'hunger' is a constant companion for me..  and it's only recently that I experienced 'hunger free' days!  Until those days (of very recent) discovery of what its like not to be hungry 24/7 (when not stuffed)  I never experienced that PEACE within.. SO YOU SEE how life is.. learning is just starting, even after many years on BTD / GENO / Swami..  It starts every day fresh.. (and I have been diet/cooking  conscience  since being 13,  - 55 years, along time but learning continues.. I am looking forward to Dr D's newest NEWS! ) It is seen in small changes within Swami-xpress.

Like Einstein, everyone remebers his first formule but hardly anyone knows the other discoveries he made.. WE don't have the kapacity to retain more then one factor at a time.. Dr D's work is sort of like that ... one dicovery that we still are trying to explain, while he forgot more then we know.. and has moved on... with us trailing behind.. panting while trying to hang on his coat tails.. Immagin what is going on in his mind .. ?  Immagine the converstion Einstein IF he could meet todays scientists for coffee?   I think the coffe would remain HOT! just from their own ENERGY..  

I hope I typed this out clearer now.. ..


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Quoted from Vegan Joe
I to am interested in this as my father passed away about five years ago at 79 after a few years of the disease.  I to don't wish to have my children be responsible to my evey need as/if I age. I read that it is more likely suffered if it comes from the mother's side of your family, to which it seems to be with my father, as no others have shown signs. His mother passed away when he was 17 and she did have diabetes, but I have no real info on these diseases of hers. Here to there is information that points to red meat as a possible cause. I don't know if I see this. But I see a connection between Mad Cow and the prion disease that is common in both. But the industry and science seems to avoid any connection.


Your info is from a one size fits all diet approach. Follow what ever you want, but know that most health info does not take blood type into account.

  I believe O's need meat so I am biased, you came here knowing that. I applaud you your decisions are your own.  It is hard to overlook the name you use here on this board.

Do you think somehow I will change my mind and think that O's can be vegans or any of the blood types for that matter? I have seen too many who once they eat meat can't believe how much better they feel. Being vegan is way different then even vegetarian. I have a sister who is an O vegan and suffers greatly due to it, but refuses to change her ways. I wish you the best, I will not discuss it any more. I am sorry if I upset you in any way.

Some have suggested that there is almost no Alzheimer's in India, and that the daily use of spices, especially turmeric, maybe be part of the reason.  Turmeric is a great painkiller for many (not all).  My type A Dad started using it--about 1/2 t. morning and evening--for arthritis pain in his hands.  That part works fine, and at 93 he has absolutely no signs of being off his mental game (despite fairly severe Parkinson's).  Not to say cause and effect, but my husband and I keep up our turmeric too.  (O-).

@VJ Prions that cause mad cow have nothing to do with Alzheimer's with the exception of possibly leading researchers to a cure .

Wheat germ agglutinin can attach to the insulin receptors (especially in type O) and the issue is that they are not natural and interupt the body's ability to turn off the state-- this was on the 2003 IFHI CD's. So, no good for the blood sugar. Second, we know gluten can pass through to the brain-- and how many have or don't know they have compromised gut integrity?

Also, sad to say, but on those CD's Dr. D pointed out one of the issues with many "studies" is they do not take into account blood type or individuality in any way. In one study, he pointed out the bias because all of the A's were already dead, leaving only O's. Different folks require different strategies.

Hope that is clearer than mud. A little tuckered out.

Turmeric is wonderful.

Iron and copper are part of a healthy diet. Everything in balance. Not a whole cow a week, please. Also, red meat would tend to be more inflammatory in A's. Probably not good for prevention. I would attempt to look at WHY the people are saying what they are-- what is the benefit of the whole grains? Fiber and cleaning out the colon? Link through some things for people to look at.

Synthetic Vitamin E is probably a big caution for anyone. Whole foods rock!

Here are some foods mentioned on Wikipedia (don't rely on Wikipedia for anything important, just being lazy)-- my guess is some of these are on your good list already! Compare it to whatever list you are using.

Quoted Text
Dietary sources and supplementsThe following foods are rich in vitamin E:[33]

Wheat germ oil
Sunflower oil
Safflower oil
Nuts and nut oils, like almonds and hazelnuts
Green leafy vegetables, like lettuce, spinach, turnip, beet, collard, and dandelion greens
Tomato products
Pumpkin
Sweet potato (0.26 mg/100 g[34] so it corresponds to 5.8 kg of potatoes per day of the recommended intake for adults)
Rockfish
Mangoes
Asparagus
Broccoli
Papayas
Avocados




From a mental side of things-- obsessing over something in a worrisome way is a negative use of your energy. I was there long ago. Stay on the positive path and keep going in right direction. Focus on what you want.

Best to you.

Quoted from TJ

For some reason, I read your "number of posts" (22 at that time) as your age.




I just did the same thing!

You might also look at this from the point of view of what systems you want to SUPPORT and go for foods that feed your brain and central nervous system. The more I learn, the more I agree with what Lola referenced-- the gut is so important.
