While You Are Waiting For an Alzheimer's Cure

We all sit with bated breath waiting for a cure, or at least a postponement of the symptoms of Alzheimer’s. However, many touted trials in phase 2 somehow didn’t pan out in phase 3. And often treatments seem to work better for mice than people so far.

What can we learn from Alzheimer’s?There is no magic wand to wave Alzheimer’s away. However, we can still dictate our life and experience things in our own way for a while. Some people never learn that they can do this, but Alzheimer’s can make a person wise with an inner knowing. It is a curiosity that some brains which have been autopsied were filled with plaques and tangles, yet those people never manifested Alzheimer’s symptoms while they were alive. Had they found a spiritual enlightenment which scientists cannot yet identify?
