do a search on the internet for peanut butter may be an early test for alzheimers
I did it. Confirmed that I have Alz.
Peanut butter started out as a health food. Like Coca Cola and cold cereal.
Rock. Have you gone to an Alzheimer's specialist? I know there is meds. to stop it in it's tracks. And are you taking the organic coconut oil?
OK, I just tried this. Couldn't smell thru my left nostril at all! Having a spoonful all the way to nose and still had no smell. I do have a deviated septum that goes to the right. Sometimes it's really hard to breathe. Anyway, I'm going to start up taking the coconut oil again. My mom had two sisters and a brother with alzheimers.
Finally figured out what you were talking about. I found the p-nut butter smell test in the news.
I can smell better on the right side. But I don't think the test is valid for me. I've had a
terrible sense of smell for decades. Probably due to my allergies.
No, I haven't seen a specialist. I've read about people who did better once they got off
aricept. I have too many medical problems; too many meds and supplements. Don't want
to mess around with more.
Did you see my post about the big jar of coconut oil I bought? Darned thing leaked all
over. Got a refund although I was still out 5 bucks of shipping. Oil never do that again.
Anyhoo, thanks for thinking of me. Oh yeah, w/ regard to my granddaughter, she is about
12 and lives with her parents in Seattle. My son and I had a wonderful relationship until
he grew up. Now he wants nothing to do with me. So there is no way I could contact
my granddaughter. We just never know what lies around the corner. I grieved for years;
now it's over.
yes, I did see about the leaking CO. Sprouts sells virgin coconut oil and I believe TJ does also. I would say to really give it a good try. From what I've watched on Youtube and read on the internet it sounds very promising. I just heated up the mug of water in microwave that my little juice glass of CO is then put into.
I understand about your son and granddaughter. Yes, we can grieve for years over the loss of a relationship, but I'm finding it does no good for ME. It has to be a two way street for both parties. I have a situation in my own life, and I'm finding it best for me to just NOT think about this person. Every so often it rears itself up in my thinking and I'm miserable, feeling terribly depressed.
Heard that they have found a "cure" for Alz. My nurse friend just told me it's a protein and the treatment is from England. Gee, sounds an awful lot like my peptide injections. I know Oxford has been working on one for Alz. for quite some time. I don't know how it would work on some who already has it but my guess is that it would, at least, halt any progression. Good news all around. Of course, they didn't say anything about FDA approval or when we can expect to see this available. The shots have absolutely no side effects so things should go fast. Keeping praying. They are also developing "cures" for Parkinson's and Autism. I would hope for ALS as well.
