Help My Mom Beat Alzheimer's Naturally

Jason Kaczynski  WEBSTER, MA

Help me get my mother back to good health!  My family and I have decided that the traditional medical approach we've been given for the past 6 years to "treat" Alzheimer's and memory loss has failed.  Instead, we are taking a more natural and holistic approach to healing her!  This means making some significant changes to way she eats and lives.

We want to give her the right "jump start" that will start this whole healing process the right way.  What are we going to do?  I will be driving my mother and I down to Atlanta, GA to take part in a health retreat at the Living Foods Institute, which is a natural healing and education center founded by Brenda Cobb.  She's helped thousands improve their health and heal from a wide array of disease and illness after she herself treated the cancer she had using the same methods she teaches at the institute.  (You can read all about Brenda and The Living Foods Institute, and a full description of what they teach/practice at www.livingfoodsinstitute.com).

At the Living Foods Institute, they believe that there are 5 critical parts to healing:
1. Positive thinking
2. Emotional healing
3. Stress management and release
4. Cleansing and detoxification
5. Proper nutrition

My mother will be taking part in the center's 17-day program, which includes all the raw and living foods she'll be eating during this time, taking part in numerous natural therapies for detoxing and stress relief (such as colonics, infrared saunas, and multiple massage techniques just to name a few), emotional healing therapies, and using numerous essential oils, herbs, and natural health products to help her heal, detox, and get her mind back.

Most of these methods of healing are never discussed by ordinary medical doctors, and many of them are even frowned-upon and deemed as "dangerous". However, I understand how the medical system works.  After all, there's no money in keeping people healthy, right?

Rest assure though, we've done our homework and we've even met with an M.D. that runs a holistic health center to hear what he had to say about the program.  And what'd he say?  That the program was "just the jump start Patty needs to start the healing process off right!"

Once we get back from Atlanta, we will continue with this strictly raw and living foods diet and continue the whole healing process for at least 6 months.  It will become part of her whole new lifestyle!  Afterwards, some cooked foods can be added back into her diet here and there - but only if she wants them! :)

PLEASE consider donating to help us get my mother's health back so she can become more independent and back to living somewhat of a normal life.  She's only 59 years old for goodness sake.....that's way too young to suffer from memory loss!  It would mean everything in the world for her to be able to think for herself again, engage and take part in conversations, start scrap booking again, and remember all the great moments shared with family and friends.  And for me, I'd love nothing more than keeping her alive and well so she can see me get married one day, have kids of my own, and be a great parent just like she was for me! 

The $15,000 we're trying to raise here is just what it'll cost to enroll in the 17 day program at the Living Foods Institute and get us down there, so even the smallest donations are much appreciated!

I hope you join us on this incredible journey.  It will all be documented on a blog that I'll be setting up before we take off on our retreat.  And thanks for taking the time to read about our plans to help heal my mother!

Thank you SO much to everyone that's donated to help Patty reclaim her health! We're so touched that so many people care enough to support her cause. Sorry to those I have not yet thanked personally....take this as a general "thank you" for now!

I especially want to say thank you to my girlfriend Rachel's family and friends. Many of you have never even met my mother before, and it means so much to me that you would even consider donating any amount to help us improve her health. We really appreciate your kindness and generosity, and I can't wait for you all to meet her :)

I'll be keeping this page open to donations for quite some time in order to help offset our ongoing costs of improving Patty's health. So far though, all of your kind donations have helped pay for our entire trip down here - including hotel stays, gas, food, and groceries. And it also covers the purchase of a refurbished Vitamix, under sink water filter, and juicer for making wheatgrass juice!

Thank you so much all!

Hi Jason, I just heard from Mike Ski about your Mom. My stepfather had the same illness an it is very stressful for the care takers. We finally took him off all of the prescription medications, and only used Turmeric, Cinnamon, and dark chocolate as holistic treatments. It definitely seemed to work. And there is some promising new drugs on the way. Good luck in Atlanta. I've known the Skis and Sullivans for many years!
