Thanks for visiting my Blog! Please tell me where you are from

I am curious to learn where the people who are reading my blog are from in the World. I don't know any way to find out except to ask, so I am. I have a Visitor's Poll on the left side. Please take a second to select the best answer. If I don't have your Country listed it is not intended as a Slight. I quickly realized I could not list every country, so I have continents listed. Feel free to drop me a comment or email as to which Country you reside in if it isn't in the list IN ADDITION to selecting the best answer in the poll. Thanks

A Journey into forgetfulness

A Journey into forgetfulness

Have you ever had an experience where you knew …

The name of the person, it was on the tip of your tongue as they say, but ….it just eludes you, just stays slightly beyond your grasp.

Or you just had those car keys, sun glasses, …. but now what did you do with them? Where did you put them?

Now imagine …. that is your life. 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 52 weeks a year, that is your life.

You just can’t quite recall. It is something you should know but. …. It eludes you.

And day by day, week by week the things that slip just into the shadows of your mind where you can sort of glimpse them but can’t quite make out what they are grow and grow and slip further and farther away.


This is what this blog is about. A Journey into forgetfulness. With this blog I will discuss our own experiences with Alzheimer's disease in the hopes it will help others with family or friends with this illness

Kangen Water

My father is better.  That is unusual to say about someone who has Alzheimer's.

I moved to South Korea in September of 2009.  By July of 2010, the reports I was hearing about my father indicated that he was close to being totally bed-ridden.  He had forgotten how to walk.  He was sleeping more and more of the day.

Then my mother started using Kangen water.  When I visited the US in November, my father was actually better then when I left the US more than a year earlier.  She gave the credit to Kangen water.  He was talking, and I could understand what he was saying.  He was more alert.  No, he wasn't cured, and I don't want to give that impression.  But for the first time there was an improvement in his condition rather than the steady but ever-present decline that is normal in Alzheimer's.  She even started a website and sells Kangen water machines:   Many people in the community come and "borrow" gallons of water from her each week, and several people have purchased their own machines.

If your loved one has Alzheimer's, and you can afford it, you may want to consider Kangen water.  For many families, anything that slows the progress of the disease is welcome.
