A Friend's mum has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's.

What is the latest understanding of how to cope with and treat this.

would warmly recommend the BTD and then add the orthomolecular therapy likewise Dr. Uwe Gröber , the orthomolecular papst in Europe recommends ......:-)

Vit.C 1000- 3000mg's daily
Vit.E 1000-20000IE
Alpha Lipoic acid 600mg's
Coenzyme Q10 60-300mg's
Vit.B complex 50-100mg's
Benfotiamin 150-300mg's
Vit. B1 3000-8000mg's
Omega 3 fatty acids 1,5-4grams
N'acetyl-L-Carnitin 2000-6000mg's
Selen 100-400ug's
Magnesium 2-500mg's

some other recommendations are fine too Ginki b 120-240mg's
Pyritinol (B6derivat) 3x200mg's daily

in the handbook of Dr. Murray & Pizzorno it is written,add also phosphatidylserine100mg's,phosphatidylcholine 15-25gr,Dhea and Huperizine200ug's
and the above mentioned products but in a much lesser amounts...;) here lays the difference to success;)...I justamente love to use orthomolecular medicin... :D ;D

ahem yep a bit less for BT A's... often I saw that they aren't that prone to have highest amounts of whatsoever... fine for the nonnies of all BT's but then... take care ;) :D....

I recommend following one of the Dr. D.'s diets, perhaps the one in the aging book:

Also four of Dr. D.'s protocols apply:


Cognitive Improvement

Immune enhancing

Liver Support

Stopping the progression of Alzheimer's is difficult.  There is no one magic supplement that is going to do it.

I strongly recommend including activities, such as dancing, in a treatment plan.

1 T powerful lecithin supplement (Twinlabs makes a good one)
1 T flax oil or olive oil
Added to juice, taken in AM on empty stomach

hope there s NO ginko biloba in her diet......or did she ever take it?

Turmeric contains a constituent that keeps plaque from accumulating in the body. Brain plaque is one of the disease mechanisms of ALZ. In india there is a very low percentage of ALZ because of the curry consumed. There was also a very conclusive study done with mice. Turmeric supplements can be added to the list.

Once the diagnosis is made that means the architecture of the brain is altered, I am not sure how much these things do :-/.

Do they have children? Grandchildren?

Now they know that they may carry the gene for AD as well as environmental toxicity. :-/ I would spend some energy talking to them.

Hi Lola and all, my mother is a late stadium of Alzheimer for her neurologist, but she took Gingko Biloba for some years at the beginning.  Are we sure it is so toxic,as she speaks and walks without difficulty , though all the mood and craziness of the disease and the strong cognitive impairment.
It is unbelievable to see smart charming persons, as my mother and many of these persons were, fall deeply  in needy and angry children behaviour. Three years she survived a colon cancer with surgery and without chemotherapy, which she could not tolerate as anemic and an Alzheimer case.
She is a Warrior or Explorer nonnie.
All my thoughts and prayers for the friends of John ! Maria Giovanna

Lola, why do you say this?

in certain types ginko is not advised, can speed up the process...bringing more circulation to the brain, and accentuating the degenerative processes that are already taking place.
like an overdrive......this phenomenon counts for most sups......reason why one should always follow the protocols given, for the time spans given and not auto supplement oneself just because we read an article and one size fit all advise all over.

the reason why I love using the encyclopedia and all tools Dr D has made available for us.....all physiologically right and targeted.

ginko on page 565 is recommended for Bs and As......not the best choice in Os and ABs
everything has a why and a how.....
we do not know the lady s I thought I should mention the above.
for As it works more at a cardio vascular level
for Bs only, as a cognitive improvement sup.....
individuality is key when supplementing

OTOH turmeric is either beneficial or neutral for every type.....the turmeric studies showed a decrease is plaque accumulation. This isn't the study, but it does cite it.... :P

I'm sorry to dig up an old thread, but...

Maria, is your mom A+ or A-? I'm not sure it makes a difference, but I am trying to research which blood type is more prone to getting AD. My grandmother was type A and also beat colon cancer, then ultimately died with Alzheimer's. I am type A-.

My mom  was A + (nonnie I bet), my Dad is A -  so we carry the- gene but we 3 children are A+   I cannot think  easily the A- has risk of Alzheimer  I know  3 A- old not having Alzheimer's disease.

Timely article:

Be sure and read the comments at the bottom. It's complicated.

My mother died with Alzheimers disease. The last 5 years were terribly sad for me.

remember once upon the time my bla's from this or last year about the film including nuns in their last days, between 80 and more then 90 years aged, who were according that after their death their brains should be seen for Azh... and in the most agile and
almost aged lady (she died after her 103 birthday) she showed up with the most plaques in her brain but no signs of Azh. when she was alife to detect... as written today I'm more then convinced that a lot here also is psychogen...and a lot of diseases are meant to overcome only spiritually.....this is my opinion todays coz of my very long observations of different patients since years¨...!

and sorry forgot :K) to you dearest Averno(smile)

Isa very interesting, it may be depression , anger or emotonal distress for some people can lead to a brain shut down , I believe it easily...
My take  with three old persons healthily survivig with a ready mind
A- are not much more prone to this terrible disease.
I agree also on fatty acids, fish, linseed oil and ghee !

My mother became all of the above after my father died, and her decline was obvious. Perhaps the "shut down" that you mention prevents the brain from forming neurological "work-arounds" that might otherwise occur. Such as the case with the aforementioned Nuns. The difference might mean a somewhat faltering existence vs grinding to a halt.

Thank you, Isa  :K)

Interesting. Benadryl?! I just gave my kid a benadryl tonight (it's hay fever season here...February, I know, it doesn't make sense to me either), so I'm all  :o

My grandmother (dad's mom) had dementia for a few years before she died at 86. I'm pretty sure she was an A or B, and probably had undiagnosed celiac (her mom died of colon cancer). Mom's mom was mentally sharp up until she passed at 86. She was A, not sure if A+ or A-, but one of her daughters is O-, so definitely had some of the Rh -.

Condolences to all who have had to suffer through dementia or Alzheimers with their loved ones. It was hard with my dad's mom.  She lived with us for a year before moving to an assisted living place and still sort of seemed to know who I was at that time, so it wasn't as bad as it could be. It was hard, though.

Melatonin supplementation benefits Alzheimer's disease patients
Life Extension Update
Tuesday, June 9, 2015.

The results of a double-blind trial reported in the journal Clinical Interventions in Aging indicate a benefit for prolonged-release melatonin in cognitive function and sleep in men and women with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease.

Melatonin, a hormone released by the brain's pineal gland, initiates sleep in addition to being associated with other health benefits. "Sleep has an important role in memory consolidation," note Alan G. Wade and colleagues in the introduction to their article. "Emerging evidence links poor sleep to increased Alzheimer's disease risk and memory loss. However, to prove causality, it is important to show that improvement in sleep can ameliorate the disease."

Seventy-three patients receiving standard Alzheimer's disease drug therapy were randomized to receive two milligrams of prolonged-release melatonin or a placebo nightly for 24 weeks. Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale-Cognition, Instrumental Activities of Daily Living, Mini–Mental State Examination and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index assessments were administered at the beginning of the study and at 12 and 24 weeks, and a sleep diary documented midsleep awakenings.

After 24 weeks, those who received melatonin had significantly better cognitive performance, as indicated by two of three test results, compared to the placebo group. Improved sleep efficiency was also observed in the melatonin-treated group in comparison with baseline. Among a subgroup of 13 patients who had insomnia at the beginning of the trial, melatonin significantly improved all test results.

"A plausible mechanism for prolonged-release melatonin effects in Alzheimer's disease could be that the improved sleep efficiency leads to lower risk of accumulation of beta amyloid deposition and/or increase in beta amyloid clearance from the brain, which can ultimately result in the attenuation of Alzheimer's disease progression," the authors write. "If so, patients with good sleep quality can potentially also benefit from the neuroprotective effects of the hormone."

Melatonin is forbidden here in Switzerland ... :P >:(

a lot of different researches show up here and claim their "bein the one who found out for AZ" but indeed I'm sure the true causa isn't really found... I'm sure we all need to go for prevention but beginning in earlier adulthood... very important is the right foods... and of course also supplementation... in those stressy days none of us is safe if not taking the preventive way indeed ...(ok)(smarty)(smile)
Also awareness here is one of the formulas' and acting accordingly our bloodtypes I think and observed is the way to go becoming aware about our own psyche patterns and working on ourselfs... a true must in those times ;)... ;D :D

Apolipoprotein E (APOE) ε4 increases human longevity  with sufficient exercise:

Quoted Text
Specifically, carriers of the ε4 allele of the APOE gene (responsible for lipid transport) have higher levels of total cholesterol and accumulation of atherosclerotic plaques in arteries, leading to increased risks of cardiovascular disease and stroke, as well as dementia and AD [11]. The APOE ε2 and ε3 alleles confer reduced risks of these diseases of aging relative to the ε4 allele, and are relatively recent additions to the human genome, ...

However, evidence suggests that increases in the human lifespan began as early as 1.8 million years ago [13], when our ancestors were likely homozygous for APOE ε4. To understand how the long human lifespan evolved within this constraint, it is important to view lifespan evolution within the context of aging outcomes that we see in living humans.... If longevity evolved in humans to, in part, allow grandparents to aid offspring in raising grandchildren, then we must understand how our ancestors aged successfully despite being homozygous for APOE ε4. Recent studies suggest that lifestyle factors, specifically aerobic exercise, can have a positive impact on the aging brain, as well as physical longevity, especially in carriers of the ε4 allele

To get the type of reservatol doses used in this study you would need to consume approximately 1000 bottles of wine a day.

Much more practical to use Polygonum Cuspidatum root for getting any substantial dose of reservatol.
