From Esther Heerema, your Guide to Alzheimer's / Dementia
Today's newsletter contains some interesting research on how tau protein, a marker of Alzheimer's, spreads from one area of the brain to another, much like a virus. Researchers also have discovered a similarity between early and late onset Alzheimer's disease that they didn't think existed. Finally, there are two more days to comment on the National Alzheimer's plan. I have sent each comment received on to the US Department of Health and Human Services. It's not too late to share your thoughts on the draft of this very important plan.

Research: Similar Gene Mutations in Early & Late Onset A.D.
When we consider early onset Alzheimer's disease (where symptoms appear before the age of 60) and late onset, there is a tendency to categorize early onset as familial, meaning that it has a strong hereditary component, and late onset as sporadic, meaning that it is much more random. However, based on what researchers are learning, we may need to rethink this...Read more

  1. How my son was cured from psychosis.
    My son Jim was down with psychosis which his major symptoms was his aggressiveness and violence towards us and anyone, the psychosis which struck him at the age of 17 he had to drop out of high school and he was kept under watch indoors and this took the major part of his life because it all lasted for 14 more years before i was able to come across this useful website www.brainhealthpress.com that treats and cures psychosis, schizophrenia and i contacted them, and told them all about my son's condition and they gave me hope and assured me that he will be fine and in the end their doctor came to our house and treated him personally at our house in Texas using their herbal medicine which he was on for 3 months and his condition was better and in 6 months he had no symptoms of psychosis anymore, he was normal again and he was no longer aggressive and violent. Today i am a proud father, because i was shy about him before where others introduced their son and i remember mine. Before this we had tried various prescriptions (rispedal, zyprexa) from our psychiatrist and several therapies to supress the symptoms that all failed. When he was 25 his condition heightened and he became super aggressive and very violent. Today my son is doing fine and he is no longer aggressive to anyone. If you or anyone you know have psychosis, bipolar disorder, dementia, Alzheimer or schizophrenia simply contact them on (info@brainhealthpress.com) they can help you regain your lost sanity just like my son. I hope this information helps someone out there.
