I watched The Magic Pill and am so happy Pete produced it. The new season of My Kitchen Rules Australia is presently showing, so I see him multiple times a week. Wonderful to know that he's using some of his fame and fortune to spread the good word about food as medicine.

Bluesinger, missed the original post, wanted to wish you the best in this endeavor. I read Amy Berger's book and think that Alzheimerís is diabetes 3, as they call it in some research circle. Which would mean you are on the right track.

Less than one month in and the Study was cancelled today due to liver damage caused by their "cure." Relieved.

In the meantime, I learned about the Bredesen Protocol and got my Health and Ancestry report from 23andme. That link gets me $20 if you sign up. Full disclosure.

What my DNA says is that of the 43 dire diseases they tested, I'm a carrier for NONE. I also have no genetic health risk for Late-onset Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and various other strange diseases. Seems I hit the genetic jackpot and never knew. I gave all the credit to my lifestyle and diet because both my parents had multiple bad and scary health issues.

I'm waiting to learn if the Cleveland Clinic wants me in another study. Meanwhile, my plan is to continue doing what I'm doing, plus I just started testing for blood ketones because I want to eat more for strength so I can run longer distances, but stay in ketosis.

Yes, as we were still in the screening phase, I got no medications. AND I won the gene lottery. I'm the luckiest person alive, and very grateful.

Bevangel, thanks. Now we need to keep doing what we can lifestyle-wise and keep sharing what we learn about AD.

Saw this quote today in a book I'm reading:

"Reality exists in the human mind, and nowhere else. - George Orwell"

Meditating on this entire concept, flavored with an old Wayne Dyer quote:
"If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."

He goes on to say:
"The truth of this little maxim is actually found in the field of quantum physics, which, according to some, is a subject thatís not only stranger than you think it is, itís stranger than you can think. It turns out that at the tiniest subatomic level, the actual act of observing a particle changes the particle. The way we observe these infinitely small building blocks of life is a determining factor in what they ultimately become. If we extend this metaphor to larger and larger particles and begin to see ourselves as particles in a larger body called humanity or even largerólife itselfóthen itís not such a huge stretch to imagine that the way we observe the world we live in affects that world."

And there is also the "Observer effect", first noticed in physics, but probably has an even bigger effect in studies of humans and animals. The fact that someone is observing changes the subjects' behaviour. For instance in diet studies, even the ones who are not being given the new food/substance also lose weight at first, probably because they are "being good" since they know they are being watched.

And my meditations led me to something I posted in my J yesterday:
Quote:
Play the "What If" game with me.

What If what we perceive as diseases of the mind are merely our observation of a person who is living on a different reality plane?

Don't laugh at me. I think about things like this every day.
So let's take that a step further: The AD mind could be the realization of forward human evolution. This requires a paradigm shift on the part of us as observers.

I watched a movie last night wherein the (beautifully played) person was just slipping away, but not yet gone for good. It was an agony. One moment here and bewildered, the next moment his own "self." But so is childbirth an agony. On the other side of the pain is a new person.
