Some people say they can slow down the progression of Alzheimer’s disease, even stop it completely or reverse it. That may or may not be true.
The next time you hear or read about the next (or previous for that matter) cure for Alzheimer disease, consider this:
Things that sound to good to be true usually are too good to be true.
And, while I love this video, I would even take it with a grain of salt, particularly the bit at the end that says “talk to a scientist or a doctor” because the problem is, a whole whack of scientists, doctors and researchers are as cracked as the charlatans!
I’m all for:
- doing my own research
- listening to my own common sense
- using my own capacity for critical thinking
- exercising my intuition
- seeking out the wisdom, advice and knowledge of people I know to also be sensible, reasonable, rational critical thinkers with lots of hands on experience in whatever the subject matter is
On the latest “cure” for Alzheimer disease, I’m going with the healthy approach of exercising my brain and my body, eating right, living well, having fun and being present in the moment. On the other hand, I’m not afraid of living with dementia should that be my destiny.
I’ve made the most of whatever life has dished up so far, and I intend to continue.
