Of course it doesn't hurt to TRY preventative measures, but so far all of these "miracle cures" (like coconut milk) have proven ineffective. Can't fight the brain, I guess.
There are many alternatives to "slow down or prevent" memory issues and I've been doing my reading and research for myself..I don't want to end up in a home for dementia patients. I'm 80 and been working on this issue for probably 20 some yrs when we were talking about overload of aluminum in the brain.

And how do you know if CO doesn't work if you are not working with it?

Amazing how so many are so quick to dismiss what could help.

Eating a healthy diet keeps you healthy. Who would have thought?

Best selling books dont necessarily contain truth. If they did, people would accept the Bible's word on how the world was created and how man was saved.

I'm not dismissing anything, and as I said, it never HURTS to try preventative measures. I'm just saying that people (like my father) who do everything right still end up with Alz/Dementia, and given the severity of the disease, it's hard to believe something like coconut oil will prevent it. No harm in trying, but I don't want to get my hopes up too high.

Good news is that studies have shown cannabis to reduce your chances, so my brother and I were joking that we're 100% safe if that's true.

Read Dr. Mary Newport's story about her husband and CO she treated him with. I don't know what it can do with alz full blown but I've been using CO for years now. And i've cut grains out of my life some time ago too. Who KNOWS.... I've done years of research on prevention of health issues. I didn't do it early enough for the OA I deal with perhaps. For me could have lots of years consuming sugars/refined carbs. And more inflammation.

So many are cutting out good fats today as the media sources have been promoting these no fat, low fat designer foods...could be a result too of the memory issues. I never bought into the low fat stuff, give me the real foods.

And I've been taking a powerful antioxidant for over 24 yrs that reduces amyloid plaque on the brain. It's sad more and more in our country don't work with prevention but end up rushing to the pharma drugs when the issues are full blown.
