Alzheimer’s Disease is now the third leading cause of death in America (heart disease is first and cancer is second) and is predicted to afflict approximately 45 million currently living Americans (Bredesen, 2020, p 10). Almost everyone knows of at least one person who has unfortunately suffered this all-too-common fate. It does not have to be this way – thanks to Dr. Dale Bredesen, M.D.
The world is indeed very fortunate that Dr. Dale Bredesen has devoted his life to unravelling the true causes of Alzheimer’s Disease. Through his tireless efforts, he has discovered how to successfully prevent or even reverse cognitive decline. By following Dr. Bredesen’s advice we can help this scourge become a RARE disease instead of it being the very common devastating affliction that it is today (Bredesen, 2020, p 4-5).
Alzheimer’s Disease causes tremendous suffering to not only the person who is...

I have been on a big learning curve recently after a significant head trauma which happened while calmly standing next to one of my horses. I have no memory of the incident (which has its pros and cons!), but as a result I set about to understand what really has been going on inside that boney skull of mine!
Before I begin to share the exciting information about healing from brain trauma, I just want to say that I was extremely fortunate to have my husband, Ron, nearby to save my life and that my brain injury did not impact my frontal cortex (so that, as a result, I can still think clearly!). It did impact my cerebellar region which is at the back of the skull, so I have some balance issues that I am busy healing up. Five weeks after the injury, I rode one of my horses and that was very uplifting as I love being with them. The very process of riding my horse works toward healing my brain because riding requires the cerebellar neurons to get to work...
