Dr. Timothy J. Smith
Reversing Alzheimers

Dr. Smith is the author of "Reversing Alzheimer's: How to Prevent Dementia and Revitalize Your Brain." The book shows that in the last seventeen years, our scientific understanding of how the brain works has seen exponential growth. We have discovered that our brains possess the fantastic ability to grow new neurons from stem cells as needed and can rapidly change their structure and function in response to environment and experience. We also now realize that Alzheimer’s disease is caused by multiple metabolic disruptions. This new understanding has catapulted us into a dramatically different mindset. Dr. Smith reveals what causes Alzheimer’s and what we need to do to reverse it. It shows that dementia is caused by a broken metabolism and can be reversed by applying a multi causal, molecular medicine approach, which is based on the most up-to-date peer-reviewed published scientific research as well as mainstream, alternative, complementary, functional, and naturopathic medical models. For more on Dr.Smith

Positively Speaking
"The Legacy of Our Seniors"

This is an excerpt from my self-published book Pathfinding: Seven Principles for Positive Living.

One of my most memorable moments as a child, was listening to my grandmother tell Russian folk tales as we sat nestled on the bed. I vividly remember her story about a poor, hungry woman who knocked on the door of a stranger to ask for a piece of bread and some water. When she was turned away, the person who refused to offer her food was plagued with frogs or snakes which jumped out of his mouth whenever he tried to speak. However, if the poor woman was welcomed by the host when she knocked on his door, gold and pearls would come out of the host’s mouth whenever he spoke.

My grandmother’s message was clear: Perform kind deeds whenever you can. Be loving and kindhearted. Treat people kindly so you will be treated kindly. Speak pearls of
wisdom. Respect people. Be compassionate because the pattern of the human race goes from individual to family to group to community to city to state to nation to the world. What is passed from one is passed to all. What is done to one affects everyone. I cherish the times I spent at her side soaking up the stories and heritage she passed on to me.

My family heritage is my personal, cultural and professional foundation. It’s my moral, ethical and spiritual compass. In novels, movies and plays, historical and chronological time frames are the keys to character development. Just as historical foundations set the stage in the arts, our heritage serves as the foundation for our lives. We cannot fully understand our lives without comprehending the context of our beginnings.

I think that the importance of knowing our family heritage is that we seek out how the generations before us did it, which helps us to do it better. I encourage you – whoever you are, whatever family background you come from, wherever you are going – to honor the heritage and legacy that is yours and yours alone. Share family stories. Allow your common family history to draw you closer together. Don’t miss any opportunity to visit and vacation with relatives. Let the remembrances you share be monuments to your family’s storied heritage.

Each generation has to learn important lessons from the previous one. That willingness to learn from each other and apply the family lessons will produce the dividends of
sound family values and philosophies. In this way, each generation leaves its own legacy.
