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.

Les Subrick
My prayers go out to you!
