Hi Cindy,
As someone who is about your age (71) and also has two copies of ApoE 4/4 and hates new (and old tech), let me assure you that our 20-something and older certified health coaches who volunteer as interns on this site also have trouble figuring out how to use quotes and a bunch of other "tips" that come with free forum software that isn't always easy or fun!

The quick tip I teach them is "find the post; click the quote"--meaning the large, single quotation mark in the upper right hand corner. That takes the post of the person you want to quote to a separate "posting and editing" page with their post in a grayish text box. You just start your reply after the word quote that is in brackets at the end of their post, When you're done, click on Submit!

You can see screenshots of how to do that from our How-to- guide for
using quotes to respond to another members.

Or you can just experiment by clicking on the quote icon in THIS post and let me know if this helps!
And keep that NASA scientist handy--I imagine he's useful in lots of areas beside space flight!

Do you happen to know if the Fuji water will also remove iron? I’m taking 32 ounces daily.
Thank you for reading this.

Fiji water will not remove iron from the body.

Laurie, thanks so much for sharing your mother-in-law’s testimonial. I, too, am surprised that there aren’t a lot of responses to this exciting testimony. 🙂🙌🙌🙌

For some reason the Facebook you have provided is not working, it’s stating that it is by invitation. How could I join that page?

Also, what size of Fiji water bottle did she drink per day? Was it the 1 Liter or 16 oz?

I look forward to your response. Thank you!
laurie wrote: Wed Mar 21, 2018 3:05 pm I would like to share my mother-in -law’s journey of reversing Alzheimer’s. My husband and I attribute most of her improvement to drinking Fiji water (3 to 4 cups a day). I am wondering if anyone else has experienced improvement after drinking Fiji water (or a water high in silica).

My husband Dennis N Crouse has spent the last six years researching ways to help his mother. He is a scientist so he began by reading the scientific literature. We had hoped to slow down the progression of the disease so she wouldn’t have to go through end stage Alzheimer’s but this journey has evolved into a reversal of the disease. My husband knew he needed to find a cause before he could find ways to help his mother. Research has reached a tipping point and aluminum is a causal factor of Alzheimer’s.

My mother- in-law is 91. When she was 85 memory difficulties started to impact her daily functioning. One of the first things my father-in-law noticed was increased frustration when balancing the checkbook. She eventually had to give up doing the check book. She worked for an accountant for many years and this task had been very easy for her. The memory difficulties also began to impact on her ability to sew. She was a seamstress who had a fabric shop in the basement of her home. She did alterations for people. These difficulties progressed to where she couldn’t remember how to thread the sewing machine. She no longer sews. A few years later she began struggling to prepare the evening meal. She was having frequent panic attacks and severe frustration when she was unable to do a task due to her short term memory difficulties. In the late afternoon her functioning would decrease to the point where she was unable to have a conversation.

About 2 years ago she began drinking Fiji water. Over the following two years we saw improvements in her cognition and behavior. The major and most recent improvement is in her short term memory. She use to talk mostly about things which happened many years ago. There were times when she was talking as if things that happened in the past were currently happening. In the last 6 months she talks primarily about what is currently happening and what has happened the last few days. In addition to the Fiji water she takes PQQ 20mg and taurine 500 mg. She has been taking Vitamin D3 2,000 IU, CoQ10 200 mg and B 50 for many years. We have also tried to eliminate sources of aluminum in her daily life.

Her improved cognition has improved her ability to care for herself. This has resulted in improved health and quality of life. She was having bladder infections and bladder control issues frequently. At one point she wore a catheter. Currently, she is on a prophylactic dose of antibiotics. In the past she couldn’t remember to take this medication. She would stop taking the medication as she couldn’t remember why she was taking it. She would also forget to get a refill. For the past year she has had only a few bladder infections. She now is able to tell you why she takes the medication and she remembers to take the medication and get refills.

Over the past few years she has had trouble renewing her driver’s license. We have been very worried about her ability to drive. Last year when she went to renew her license she was required to take a written test in addition to a road test. She read the book and much to our surprise she passed the test. Fortunately she has had no car accidents. She has a restricted license which allows her to drive to the grocery store and the doctor’s office.

Her panic attacks and frustration have decreased. Her cognition has improved to the point where she is able to describe to us when she is having anxiety and why she is having the anxiety.

There have been a few times when she wasn’t drinking Fiji water, for instance when my father-in-law was in the hospital or when they ran out and hadn’t gotten to the grocery store to get more. A few days after she stopped taking the Fiji water we noticed her frustration increased and her ability to remember things decreased.

Yes my mother-in-law still struggles with many daily tasks but overall the quality of her life has improved significantly and we are beyond pleased!

June 2020 update. I have posted updates on my mother in law in this thread but know people don't have time to read through the entire thread. My mother in law is now 93 and is living in her own home by herself. She is able to manage with minimal help. I have set up an informational Facebook group 'Alzheimer's Late and Early Onset and APOE-4'. A lot of information from my husband's books are available on Facebook.

Hopefully Laurie will respond, but I've used her husband's (Dennis N Crouse PhD) protocol for my 4/4 wife and me for quite a few years.

They suggest 24-32oz of silica (Fiji) water/day. I make our own from Dennis's "Silicade" recipe. We both consume 24 oz/day. We've both tested our aluminum level using his testing protocol with a 24 hour urine collection test while consuming 32 oz of high OSA silica water. We are both in our 60's (I'm 68) and have levels of healthy people in their 20's or early 30's.

Her husband has a number of books with more details.

They have several blog websites:
one
link to a couple.
A blog post on getting started.

Laurie has paused her FB group to retire.

Here is a link to Dennis's YouTube videos.

Hi Tincup,

Thanks so much for your response and for sharing your experiences. So it sounds like silica water is in fact beneficial. I really appreciate you sending the links to Dennis’ studies and protocol on silica water.

rmet Thank you for your interest in this information. I see Tincup answered your questions. Here is another link for you.

Although I have retired from doing my facebook group I periodically open it for a few days when I have new information or updates. I may do this in the next few days. I will keep you posted. I need to tell the group my mother in law passed in December at the age of 97. The good news is she was not in end stage Alzheimer's at this time. She survived getting Covid twice possible 3 times. When she got Covid her symptoms were mild.

Here is a recent blog post at my husband and my website about getting started. It includes a link to sources of aluminum which you will want to eliminate. https://prevent-alzheimers-autism-strok ... -protocol/

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi Laurie,

I am so sorry to hear that she passed away. Keeping you and your family in my prayers.

What a blessing that she lived such a long life, almost to be 100 years old. It is awesome to know that she was not in end stage Alzheimer’s and survived COVID a few times.

Thank you so much for the info! I will be sure to share this link with my friend who is overcoming this illness.

Yes, I appreciate that you will keep me apprised of any new info and updates.

Thank you once more to you and your husband for your sincere kindness in sharing this to help others.
