Alzheimer’s and BasicH2

I was recently told about a “home remedy” that really took me by surprise. Coconut oil can be used as a treatment for Alzheimer’s.

My friend Lloyd had gone through a long battle with his father’s Alzheimer’s before we knew as much as we know about it now. It is a tragic story coconutabout how no matter what treatments were given it seemed like a losing battle. Now that we live in an information age, it’s easier to learn about alternative medicines and treatments. Lloyd was told about coconut oil as an alternative treatment, and since then him and his wife have been cooking with it to try and use it as a preventative measure.

basicHWhere my thoughts on the whole thing came from was from a highly disputed article I read some time ago from the medical journal Evolution, Medicine and Public Health. This lay summary of this article states:

Lay summary: People living in sanitized environments may be at greater Alzheimer’s
risk. We compare Alzheimer’s rates in different countries in light of countries’ historical
and contemporary pathogen prevalence, sanitation, and urbanization. We find that
countries that are less urbanized, with more pathogens and lower degree of sanitation
have lower Alzheimer’s rates.

My opinion on this wasn’t that clean people are more susceptible to Alzheimer’s, it was that I immediately thought of the air quality issue. Clean people use more household cleaners, plus being in a more urban area there is more commercial and industrial pollution.

So what is the best way to combat this? In my opinion the best way you can help the quality of life in your own home is to use a natural cleaner. Shaklee’s Basic H2 is all natural. It’s non toxic. It’s made out of (the above mentioned) coconut…  Plus it’s available (Highly Concentrated) for $12.15 (Full Retail Price, the Member Price is only $10.35)

Wouldn’t you rather be breathing in something all natural than all of the chemicals in every store bought cleaner?

Supermarket Scramble – Free Amazon Appstore App for 7/27/11

Name: Supermarket Scramble
If you’ve always dreamed of owning your own business, here’s your (virtual) chance. There’s a catch, however. Your business is a grocery store, and the customers are quite demanding! In Supermarket Scramble, you’ll have to be quick on your feet–I mean, on your fingers–to succeed.

Miles of Aisles
Feeding the masses is a tough job, but you take great pride in your store and its customer service. In this game, you’ll be quite busy fulfilling shoppers’ grocery lists by lining up at least three in a row of that item on the “product grid.” It’s the classic match-three puzzle game, only with tasty food.

Say Shopper One has apples, lettuce, carrots, and sandwiches on her list. As quickly as you can, find places on the grid where you can slide these objects around (swapping adjacent items) to make three in a row horizontally or vertically. Once you’ve found enough of the desired food, that item is checked off the list. When a customer’s list is completed, you tap on the cash register to make the sale.

The Customer Is Always Right
Sometimes you get the Little Old Lady, who waits semi-patiently while you track down her oranges and bananas. Other times, you get the Diva. She’s late for a cocktail party and needs you to round up her items pronto, do you understand? It’s not easy to make her happy, but if you do there’s a big tip in it for you. And there are plenty of other customers–some of whom you need to unlock–with their own unique quirks.

Be sure to watch the patience meters that appear at the bottom of your customers’ lists, which reflect how fast you are filling their order. The faster you complete their order, the more bonus money you can earn. If the meter runs out, however, they leave in a huff and you just lost a sale.
