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 Alzheimerís. However, many touted trials in phase 2 somehow didnít pan out in phase 3. And often treatments seem to work better for mice than people so far. Until Alzheimerís turns into a manageable disease like diabetes, or goes into remission like certain cancers, there is nothing miraculous out there regarding drug therapy - yet. So what can you do meanwhile?

Instead of living in fear of Alzheimerís, transform that fear into an awareness of what one can still do and embrace. What can we learn from Alzheimerís?There is no magic wand to wave Alzheimerís 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 Alzheimerís 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 Alzheimerís symptoms while they were alive. Had they found a spiritual enlightenment which scientists cannot yet identify?
