Don Hayen is a retired doctor and former medical director of an HMO. He was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 2005, at age 71. Over the past two years, Don has coped well with the disease -- so well he's been unable to meet the requirements to take part in clinical trials of experimental Alzheimer's drugs. But his wife, Jane, notices his decline.

HMO President?? SO...he gets to Heaven, and St. Peter's says: you can stay for three days-then Go to HELL! (A drug rep. told me that one years ago.)

Exercise and the Mediterranean diet helps to prevent the illness.

Needs to talk with a priest about getting that demon cast out of his mind, and needs to stop watching ANY kind of porn. Needs to get in a group of other Christians.. needs to pray for deliverence. I saw a demon or some kind of spirit in his mind...

Part of the root cause is PHARMACEUTICALS!! Many NFL players develop alzheimers after years in the NFL taking all kinds of medications for pain. They can't play the game without the meds. Go figure.

I heard that medical marijuana slows down this terrible disease.

It would be nice to get some kind of a follow up? I'd like to know more about his progression.

No one is immune to this disease! We need a cure fast! It is cruel to both the patient and the caregiver. Caregivers will need all the help they can get! Thank you for this video. It is very informative.

Health and science journalist Max Lugavere has always been close with his mom. When she began to show signs of dementia in her early fifties, it shook him to his core. Wasn’t dementia an old person’s disease? And with drug trials having a near 100% failure rate, what was there to do? In 2017, a leading Alzheimer’s organization recognized for the first time that one third of dementia cases may be preventable. And so Max decided to devote himself to figuring out how he and his peers could best avoid the disease. In this illuminating talk, Max discusses the fascinating diet and lifestyle changes associated with significant risk reduction for Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, and what that means. For more, pick up his New York Times bestselling book, GENIUS FOODS. Max Lugavere is a filmmaker, author, and TV personality. He is the director of the upcoming film BREAD HEAD, the first-ever documentary about dementia prevention through diet and lifestyle, and is publishing his first book in early 2018 documenting his findings on how to optimize focus, productivity, mood, and long-term brain health with food. Lugavere is a regularly-appearing "core expert" on The Dr. Oz Show, has been featured on NBC Nightly News, in the Wall Street Journal, and has contributed as a health journalist to Medscape, Vice/Munchies, the Daily Beast, and others. He is a highly sought-after speaker and has been invited to keynote events such as the Biohacker Summit in Stockholm Sweden, and esteemed academic institutions like the New York Academy of Sciences. His newest book, GENIUS FOODS, is a New York Times best seller. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
