This book is a must read for everyone who is affected directly or indirectly by Alzheimer's, dementia, and other conditions. The authors basic premise, based on his own experience, which is a facinating story in itself, is that the accumulation of toxins in the body are primary contributory factors of Alzheimer's and other disease conditions. He cites mercury filling as a major culprit in stealing one's brain. The author is a pharmacist and his lucid moments he would write notes to his wife telling her what detoxifing modalities he wanted to try. He had the mercury removed from his teeth and it did not change things. However,some time later when his gums were x-rayed a tiny sliver of mercury was found in the gum tissue. He had surgery to remove this minute piece of mercury and at the moment of its removal he experienced complete lucidity. Tom, beat Alzheimer's and I am convinced anyone can.
