And I also feel it's important to share my experiences. Alzheimer's and dementia affect so many people but it's the kind of thing everyone says - oh, I am sorry - and then politely ignores. I think it's a huge shock to people when it happens because most of us have no knowledge of what to expect. Especially seeing what has worked for him and what a change it has made (cutting out wheat) I think is vital to share because I'm sure it would have made a greater difference earlier in the disease.
And of course, as PB and I can attest, Alzheimer's can appear almost out of the blue with no clue there's anything going wrong other than perhaps getting older, so I do think the issue of cumulative damage that Paleo theory has identified from phytates and gluten etc is a big issue here. So, yes, I do feel that sharing what we're learning is important, because many instances of n=1 can show a trend at least, even if it's not scientifically controlled.
In Dr Newport's book, she mentions noting major changes in behaviour, but the truth is that I've been journalling my father's behaviour and exactly what I'm doing with his diet or within the household, daily, almost since I moved in. At first it was so I could look back and see trends or progeression of the disease and then it was to track how what we were doing helps. I can't imagine anyone trying any kind of intervention and not tracking it carefully. sharing it is the next progression.
