The End of Alzheimer’s
Dr. Dale E. Bredesen, MD

APOE4

ApoE4.info is a group of ordinary men and women, from all over the world, who’ve banded together in an effort to collect information to save their very lives and the lives of those they care about. They’ve discovered that they (or those they love)  carry the APOE-ε4 allele, putting them at high risk for Alzheimer’s as well as other forms of dementia. Even heart disease and other maladies.

One of the exciting aspects of this website is hearing from people who’ve followed Dr Bredesen’s protocol and have made improvements. Some have been significant.

The people on this site take the time to share their wins and their losses in order to help others (just like you) navigate these waters and make the best decisions possible to slow down or stop this disease.

Brain HQ

If we are discussing strategies to improve the health of your brain, it wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t talk about exercises for your brain.

There are several good companies out there, offering great services. Dr Bredesen was especially pleased with the improvements he saw in his patients when they used the games offered at Brain HQ.

I personally enrolled in their Brain program. And … I was surprised at how comprehensive this program is. They are very thorough and want to make sure that you consistently improve your brain function.

This company is so generous to offer a ‘free’ version of their brain games. So please click here to check it out.

RevitaMind by Active Minds Global

This is a ‘meditation’ type program that Dr Bredesen found very helpful for the patients he was working with.

What is RevitaMind?

RevitaMind is a powerful brainwave entrainment program formulated to support cognitive function, memory and enhance your quality of life like nothing you’ve ever come across.

It contains a series of audio tracks available to be downloaded and transferred to your preferred audio player such as an iPod, smartphone or other inexpensive mp3 player from your local electronics store.

These recordings are not ‘music’ in the traditional sense but rather specially crafted ‘pulsed tones’. These pulsed tones stimulate and entrain your mind to provide substantial cognitive benefits when used regularly with headphones. Think of it like ‘neural exercise’ or ‘effortless meditation’, with a lot more benefits.

EWG.org

The Environmental Working Group’s mission is to empower people to live healthier lives in a healthier environment. With breakthrough research and education, they drive consumer choice and civic action.

They are a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to protecting human health and the environment. 

They work for you.  Do you know what’s in your tap water? What about your shampoo? What’s lurking in the cleaners underneath your sink? What pesticides are on your food? How about the farms, fracking wells and factories in your local area? Do you know what safeguards they use to protect your water, soil, air and your kids? Which large agribusinesses get your tax dollars and why?  What are GMOs? What do they do to our land and water?

More than two decades ago EWG set out to answer these questions, and more, and to empower you to get to know your environment and protect your health.

It’s important to understand what chemicals are on your foods, in your soaps and shampoos, etc, because some of these chemicals are directly tied to causing hormone and brain dysfunction.  Knowledge gives you the power to avoid these chemicals and improve your brain health.

Comfort in their Journey

Comfort in their Journey was founded by Trish Laub based on her experience of caring for her parents, one with Alzheimer’s, and designed to provide a practical guide to providing dignified care through end of life.

During her caregiving experience, Trish found that she also needed to make not only dignified care, but also life and death decisions, under pressure with limited understanding and inadequate information. After finishing a caregiving shift, she often spent the next shift researching and educating herself on the terminology and topics needed for the next day’s challenges. Although there are hundreds of books and organizations offering pieces of the information, she found that what she really needed was a guide: a clear, concise and usable quick reference that did not exist.

Comfort in their Journey was created to provide lists and bullet points, terminology, things to consider, questions to ask, and leads to follow. It offers you the opportunity to thrive throughout a process that is often traumatic and stressful and allows little time to research before making critical decisions. It offers you the opportunity to know the options and to make informed decisions: to think and then to take action.
