My Father and his three sisters have Alzheimer's. I've stumbled across a book by a man claiming to have reversed the symptoms and is now cured. My Father and aunts are too advanced for any hoped for reversal. I am researching the possibilities of prevention via homeopathic measures or whatever may be suggested for myself, my siblings and cousins.

Many doctors believe the heavy metals have a lot to do with Alzheimer's. In the industrial age we are all carrying some toxic heavy metals. The most common source is dental amalgam (fillings). These should be removed first if you are interested in long term prevention. You will need to find a biological dentist, someone who would not even think of putting metal in a human being to start with. You also need a doctor who can help you with removing the residual body burden of mercury (and other heavy metals). IIn addition people who are overweight tend to have a higher incidence of Alzheimer's. This probably has to do with insulin effects. Therefore maintaining correct body weight is important. The same can be said of diet and exercise.

pulmonary fibrosis

My husband has been told he has COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and pulmonary fibrosis. It is believed that the fibrosis is a result of the fine wood dust he has been exposed to over his years of employment at a local saw mill. I understand the fibrosis can come inhaling a variety of small particles. Can wood dust enter the lung and cause such damage?
