THE NEW TREATMENT TO

ALZHEIMER'S PATIENTS AND HOW IT

WORKS.

THE CHRISTIAN FILM AND SEE

HOW MANY PEOPLE SHOWED UP TO

SUPPORT THE FILM.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR JOINING

US FOR CBN NEWSWATCH. I'M EFREM

GRAHAM. TROPICAL STORM ERICA

DRENCHED ANOTHER COAST. AS THE

EAST COAST DRIES OUT, THERE IS

MORE.

FLORIDA IS STILL FEELING THE

EFFECTS. FLOOD WATCH REMAINS

AND MORE RAIN IN THE FORECAST.

MORE THA INCHES OF RAIN HAS

ALREADY FALLEN IN FLORIDA. THEY

HOPE SAND BAGS CAN HELP WITH

MORE FLOODING.

WE ARE NOT TAKING ANY

CHANCES.

THE SYSTEM SMASHED TREES AND

DOWNED POWERLINES.

I SAW THE EDGE OF THE TREE

FALLING AND I WAS LIKE, NO.

THE PARTS OF WASHINGTON

EXPERIENCED HURRICANE FORCE

RAIN.

WE HAD TREES FALLING UP IN

THE HILLS.

THE BAD WEATHER IS FAR FROM

OVER. IN THE ATLANTIC TROPICAL

STORM FRED AND IN HAWAI'I

PREPARING FOR HURRICANE IGNACIO.

> THIS DID NOT STOP THEM FROM

HONORING THREE FIREFIGHTERS

LOST IN THE FIRES. WHERE MORE

THAN 100 FIREFIGHTERS STOOD AT

ATTENTION.

A KENTUCKY CLERK WHO WAS

UNDER FIRE FOR REFUSING TO

ISSUE SAME-SEX MARRIAGE LICENSE

HAS APPEALED HER CASE TO THE

U.S. SUPREME COURT BUT SHE MAY

NOT HAVE MUCH SUCCESS. THE

JUSTICE WILL DECIDE IF HE WILL

HEAR HERA APPEAL. SHE ENDORSED

GAY MARRIAGE IN THIS RULING.

SHE STATES IT VIOLATES HER

RELIGIOUS BELIEFS. THE COUPLE

WHO HAS SUED HER CAN ASK THE

JUDGE TO HOLD HER IN CONTEMPT

AND SHE CAN FACE HEFTY FINES OR

POSSIBLE JAIL TIME.

> A MONTANA MAN AND HIS

COMMON LAW WIFE TO FILE A

LAWSUIT AGAINST BIGAMY. THEY

ARGUE IT'S IN CONSTITUTIONALLY

PREVENTING THEM FROM

LEGITIMIZING THEIR

RELATIONSHIP. THE STATE

LEGALIZING MARRIAGE SUPPORTS

THEIR STATE BECAUSE IT CANNOT

LIMIT MARRIAGES TO THE OPPOSITE

SEX.

CRITICS SAY THE FOUNDER OF

PLANNED PARENTHOOD SHOULD NO

LONGER BE HONOREDED IN AMERICA.

CALLING TO REMOVE A

CONTROVERSIAL BUST TO SANGER

AND TO THE AGENDA.

A GROUP OF BLACK PASTORS AND

PRO LIFE ADVOCATES GATHERED IN

FRONT OF THE NATIONAL PORTRAIT

GALLERY TO REMOVE THE

PHOTOGRAPH OF SANGER. A

CONTROVERSIAL PICTURE.

THE MUSEUM STRUGGLED FOR

JUSTICE EXHIBIT ALONGSIDE

FIGURES SUCH AS MARTIN LUTHER

KING JR. AND ROSA PARKS. THOSE

PROTESTING ARGUE THE WOMEN WHO

ARGUED THE USE OF EUGENICS AND

MINORITY BE ON THE SAME PATH

WITH THESE HEROES.

HE ASSEMBLED A GROUP CALLED

MINISTERS TAKING A STAND TO

FIGHT FOR IT'S REMOVAL.

SHE BEGAN HER CAREER TRYING

TO REDUCE POPULATION OF BLACKS

AND OTHER MINORITIES THROUGH

EUGENICS WHICH MEANS

STERILIZATION. SHE REFERRED TO

BLACK PEOPLE AND OTHERS AS

INFERIOR. PEOPLE SHOULD BE

BANNED FROM HAVING CHILDREN AND

REFERRED TO US AS HUMAN WASTE.

PASTOR JACKSON IN LITTLE

ROCK ARKANSAS URGED THE CROWD

AGAINST THE FIGHT OF THIS

SYMBOL.

THIS PORTRAIT OF MARGARET

SANGER IS DESTROYING THIS

COUNTRY BECAUSE OF IT'S RACIAL

SPIRIT. WE STAND TOGETHER TODAY

TO SAY THAT MARGARET SANGER

MUST GO.

THE STATUTE WILL NOT BE

REMOVED AND THAT THE GALLERY IS

MEANT TO DISPLAY SIGNIFICANT

PEOPLE WHO REPRESENT THE FULL

SPECTRUM OF THE AMERICAN

EXPERIENCE.

TEXAS SENATOR TED CRUZ AND

CONGRESSMAN HAVE ALSO JOINED

THE FIGHT URGED THE COLLEAGUES

TO SUPPORT THE CAUSE. ABIGAIL

ROBINSON, CBN NEWS.

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS

RENAMING THE NON-NATIVE ALASKAN

MOUNTAIN PEAK IS NAMED AS

PRESIDENT MCKINLEY ASSASSINATED

CLIMATE CHANGE.

> FAMILY FRIENDS AND

COMMUNITY MEMBERS GATHERED FOR

AN INNER FAITH SERVICE FOR THE

TWO JOURNALIST KILLED,AL SON

PARKER AND ADAM WARD. STATION

MANAGER SPOKE ABOUT

PRIORITIZING TREATMENT AND NOT

ALLOWING ANGER TO TAKE OVER.

ANGER AS WE SAW WEDNESDAY

CAN BE CATASTROPHIC. IF WE GET

STRATEGIC WE HAVE A GOAL AND

POSSIBILITY OF POSITIVE ACTION.

THAT'S WHAT I WOULD LIKE YOU TO

THINK ABOUT IN MEMORY OF

ALLISON AND ADAM.

THEY WERE KILLED WHILE DOING

THEIR LIVE INTERVIEW. WARD WILL

BE AT A FUNERAL AND ALLISON

THIS WEEK.

A BELL TEMPLE IN A CITY IN

CENTRAL SYRIA. ISIS TOOK OVER

OF THE CITY IN MAY. AFTER

TERROR GROUP RELEASED

PROPAGANDA BLOWING UP THE

TEMPLE OVER 2,000 YEARS OLD.

IN NIGERIA AT LEAST TWO

PEOPLE ARE DEAD IN A RAM

PACKAGE IN A VILLAGE LOCATED IN

THE NORTHEASTERN PART OF THE

STATE. FLEEING THE NEW VILLAGE,

THE RESIDENTS SAY IT HAPPENED

FRIDAY NIGHT. ONE FARMER

RECOUNTS THE DETAIL SAYING "WE

RETURNED BACK TO THE VILLAGE

AND SAW CORPSE IN THE STREET OF

THE VILLAGE." THIS GROUP HAS

KILLED NEARLY 2,000 PEOPLE.

> REMEMBERING THE AFTERMATH

OF KATRINA AND WHO STEPPED IN

WHEN THE GOVERNMENT DROPPED THE

BALL?

THIS WEEKEND MARKED THE

TENTH ANNIVERSARY OF HURRICANE

KATRINA HITTING THE GULF COAST.

THE THIS WAS BRUTAL AND THE

AFTERMATH WAS THE WORSE.

"OPERATION BLESSING" WAS ON THE

GROUND IN THE HEART OF THE

HURRICANE ZONE. THE PEOPLE THEY

HELPED ARE STILL GRATEFUL.

WE PRAYED THE LOSS OF LIFE

WAS VERY LIMITED BUT FEARFUL

THAT IS NOT THE CASE.

TOO DANGEROUS TO COME HOME THE

ROADS ARE FLOODED. THE POWER IS

OUT. THE PHONES ARE DOWN. AND

THERE IS NO FOOD OR WATER.

HURRICANE KATRINA RAVAGED

THE GULF COAST WITH STRONG

WINDS AND HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS

OF PEOPLE WERE FT WITH

NOTHING BUT BROKEN DOWN HOMES.

IT WAS MY HOUSE. I WORKED

FOR IT, AND IT WAS GONE LIKE

THAT.

WE WERE LIVING IN A FEMA

TRAILER. LOST EVERYTHING LIKE

EVERYBODY ELSE.

THERE WAS VERY LITTLE MONEY

AND WE PRAYED THAT GOD WOULD

SEND US THE HELP AND GIVE US

THE STRENGTH WE NEED.

"OPERATION BLESSING" WAS

AMONG THE FIRST ON THE SCENE

PROVIDING MEALS AND SUPPORT.

WE COME TO AREAS WHERE

PEOPLE DON'T THINK THERE IS A

POSSIBLE TO MOVE AND WE WERE

ABLE TO GUT A HOME AND ALL OF A

SUDDEN THEY BEGIN TO ENVISION

THEMSELVES BACK HOME.

ONE OF THE MOST IMMEDIATE

NEEDS FAMILY FACED WAS TEARING

OUT DRYWALL BEFORE MOLD SET IN.

"OPERATION BLESSING" WAS ABLE

TO DO MUCH MORE.

WOW.

OH, MAN.

I JUST CAN'T BELIEVE IT.

NOT ONLY DID WE TEAR OUT THE

DRYWALL, WE REFURNISHED

JESSICA'S ENTIRE HOUSE.

HEY, HOW ARE YOU?

10 YEARS LATER, JESSICA

STILL LIVES IN THE HOUSE AFTER

SHIS RESCUED FROM THE FLOOD.

DO YOU REMEMBER THIS?

YES.

INSIDE WE TOOK A MOMENT TO

WATCH THEIR ORIGINAL STORY

WHICH JESSICA HADN'T SEEN IN

YEARS. AGAIN, IT BROUGHT TEARS

TO HER EYES.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT I

WOULD HAVE DONE. I COULDN'T

HAVE IMAGINED. I WOULD NOT HAVE

THIS IF IT WASN'T FOR THEM,

REALLY.

"OPERATION BLESSING" ALSO

TREATED MORE THAN 36,000 PEOPLE

AT THEIR MOBILE MEDICAL CLINICS.

WE TOOK THE PROPER STEPS TO

OPEN UP A FULLY FLEDGE MEDICAL

CLINIC AND $150,000 WORTH OF

MEDICATION.

WITH THIS PROGRAM SO

SUCCESSFUL, THE MAY OH CLINIC

TOOK PART WITH "OPERATION

BLESSING".

AND ALSO LPED WITH THE WATER

THAT FLOODED INTO AREAS. EACH

POOL TURNED INTO A SMALL SWAMP,

A BREEDING GROUND FOR MOSQUITOS.

THIS BECAME A HUGE AREA. WE

SENT OUT MOSQUITO LARVA EATING

AND IT WOULD ATTACK THE

MOSQUITO LARVA.

I WAS ABLE TO HELP OUT WITH

THAT EFFORT. "OPERATION

BLESSING" PUT IN MOSQUITO

EATING FISH INTO POOLS AND NOT

1 PERSON DIED OF WEST NILE

VIRUS.

THE CAFETERIA OF SAINT

MARY'S ACADEMY.

"OPERATION BLESSING" CAME AS

A SIGN OF HOPE, ANGELS THAT GOD

SENT US FOR US TO REAFFIRM OUR

FAITH.

EVERYTHING WE WANTED AND

EVERYTHING THAT "OPERATION

BLESSING" AT "700 CLUB" WANTED

FOR THE COMMUNITY AND THE KIDS,

IT HAPPENED AND IT'S STILL

GOING AND GOING STRONG.

WE ALSO HELPED NORMAN

RENOVATE HIS HOME THE HELP OF

PASTOR.

WHAT?

GO SEE.

BECAUSE OF "OPERATION

BLESSING", WE WERE HOME IN 9

MONTHS. I THANK YOU ALL. TO

THIS DAY, I KNOW I DIDN'T

DESERVE IT. I TELL EVERYBODY.

JESUS AND HIS PEOPLE WHICH IS

ALL OF YOU GUYS. JESUS AND HIS

PEOPLE CAME AND DID THIS.

"OPERATION BLESSING"

PROVIDING RELIEF FOR MORE THAN

TWO 1/2 YEARS. TO THIS DAY

CONTINUE TO HELP THOSE IN NEED

ALONG THE GULF COAST. WHENEVER

DISASTER STRIKES IN UNITED

STATES ORA -- ABROAD WILL BE

AMONG THE FIRST TO SHARE THE

LOVE OF CHRIST.

WHAT "OPERATION BLESSING" IS

DOING BY GOING TO THE WEBSITE

OB.ORG AND SEE WHAT PEOPLE AND

JESUS ARE DOING IN "OPERATION

BLESSING".

ALZHEIMER'S PATIENTS, SEE

WHAT'S SLOWING DOWN THE

DISEASE. THIS STORY IS COMING

UP NEXT.

> A NEW REPORT SHOWS ANOTHER

HEALTH DANGER FROM HEAVY

SMOKING. IT CAN LEAD TO HOT

BELLY. IT COULD LEAD TO FAT

BECOMING CENTRAL IN THE BODY

THAT LEADS TO A BIGG STOMACH

AND THAT LEADS TO AN APPLE

SHAPED BODY WHICH LEADS TO

DIABETES AND HEART DISEASE.

PEOPLE CAN BE MORE AT RISK FROM

THOSE DISEASES AS WELL AS THE

CANCER THAT COMES FROM SMOKING

ITSELF.

MORE THAN FIVE MILLION

AMERICANS STRUGGLE WITH A

TERRIBLE DISEASE KNOWN AS

ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE WHICH IS NO

CURE. DOCTORS ARE SAYING NOW

CAN HELP WITH EXERCISE OF THE

BRAIN.

ALZHEIMER'S PATIENTS FOR TWO

2 WEEKS ENCOUNTER EXERCISES

DESIGNED TO REDESIGN THE BRAIN

AREAS OF PERSONALITY.

WE'VE HAD PATIENTS THAT HAVE

RESUMED DRIVING AND REMEMBER

THEIR GRANDCHILDREN FOR THE

FIRST TIME IN YEARS.

FOR INSTANCE FOCUSING ON A

DOCK WHILE MOVING IN THEIR HEAD

CAN WORK ON THE CONNECTIVITY

THAT HAVE REMOVED FROM THE

BRAIN. IT MOVES THE VESTIBULAR

AREA OF THE BRAIN AND

REAWAKENS MEMORY.

AFTER THE ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE

SHE GAVE UP BAKING. AFTER

SPENDING TIME HERE SHE REGAINED

CONFIDENCE AND BEGAN BAKING A

CAKE.

HER PERSONALITY WAS BETTER,

MORE BUBBLY. SO SHE KIND OF GOT

HER PERSONALITY BA

JEAN JONES EXPERIENCED

TERRIBLE ANXIETY BECAUSE SHE

CONFUSED HER NIGHTMARES WITH

REALITY. THAT'S GONE NOW.

IT'S MADE IT WONDERFUL AND

THAT WAS HARD ON ME AS A

CAREGIVER TRYING TO BE

UNDERSTANDING WITH THAT IN

EXPLAINING TO HER 15-20 TIMES A

DAY THAT IT'S NOT REALLY WHAT

HAPPENED, THAT'S JUST A DREAM

YOU HAD.

WHILE THESE DREAMS ARE

ENCOURAGING DOCTORS WANT TO BE

REALISTIC ABOUT THE RESULTS.

THE THING I CAN SAY THAT

THEY ARE NOT GENERATING AT THE

RATE THE DISEASES DECLINES AT.

WE WANT THEM TO INTERACT WITH

THEIR FAMILY AND NOT LOSE THAT

AS FAST. EVERYBODY WANTS THAT

EXTRA MINUTE, THAT EXTRA HOUR,

THAT EXTRA DAY, THAT EXTRA

MONTH. IF WE CAN DO THAT WE ARE

RESTORING THEIR HUMANITY.

AFTER THIS, THEY KEEP THEIR

MINDS WORKING.

WHETHER IT'S CROSSWORD

PUZZLES, STIMULATING

CONVERSATIONS.T JUST

NECESSARILY BEING IN FRONT OF

THE TELEVISION WATCHING

TELEVISION BUT TALKING ABOUT

TOPICS AND THOSE ARE THE THINGS

THAT ARE GOING TO HELP TO

ACTIVATE THE BRAIN.

THE RIGHT DIET CAN PLAY A

KEY ROLE IN SLOWING DOWN

ALZHEIMER'S.

A LOT OF THE GRAINS AND

PROCESSING OF CHEMICALS THAT WE

USE TO ALLOW TO TAKE GRAINS

FROM THE FIELD AND FRT

SUPERMARKET AND KEEPING IT LIVE

IS NOT GOOD FOR THE BRAIN.

PATIENTS SHOULD STEER CLEAR

OF PACKET FOOD IN TRANS FATS

AND HYDROGEN GENERATED OILS

WERE DOING POOR WHILE TAKING A

TEST.

WE KNOW THE BRAIN SHRINKS AT

AN ACCELERATED PIECE. IF YOU

HAVE A LARGER BRAIN, YOU MIGHT

HAVE A RESERVE TO HANDLE THAT

PATHOLOGY BETTER.

SCIENTIST DISCOVERED THAT

PEOPLE WITH THE LARGER BRAINS

ATE DIETS HIGH IN VITAMINS

B;C;D AND FISH OIL. SOME

PATIENTS EXPERIENCED REVERSAL

BY TAKING COCONUT OIL.

THIS HAPPENED WHILE WORKING

WITH HER HUSBAND STEVE WHO HAS

ALZHEIMER'S. FIRST SHE DREW

THIS PICTURE OF A CLOCK. AFTER

2 WEEKS OF COCONUT OIL HE DREW

THIS VERSION AND AFTER 3 WEEKS

CAME MORE IMPROVEMENT. SHE

INCLUDED THIS IN HER RESEARCH

IN HER BOOK "THE COCONUT OIL

AND OTHER SOLUTIONS FOR

PARKINSON'S AND OTHER DISEASES"

HER DOCTOR CALLS IT TYPE THREE

DIABETES WHICH HELPS FROM BRAIN

CELL FROM GETTING GLUCOSE. AND

KNOWN AS KETONE BODIES THAT

FEED THE BRAIN CELLS.

I HAVE A COLLECTION NOW OF

ALMOST 220 REPORTS MOSTLY FROM

CAREGIVERS AND SOME FROM THE

PERSON THEMSELVES REPORTING

THAT THEY SAW IMPROVEMENT AFTER

THEY STARTED TAKING COCONUT

OIL.

IN ADDITION TO MENTAL

STIMULATION, AND A HEALTHY

DIET. ALZHEIMER'S PATIENTS SEEM

TO BENEFIT FROM A STABLE HOME

LIFE. THAT MEANS MINIMIZING

CHAOS AND KEEPING HOUSEHOLD

ITEMS IN THE SAME PLACE AND

KEEPING TO ROUTINES.

ADDING TO A NEW ENVIRONMENT

CAN BE A CHALLENGE TO PATIENTS.

THEY CAN SLOWDOWN THE

PROGRESSION OF THE DISEASE

WHICH MEANS MORE PRECIOUS TIME

WITH LOVED ONES. LORI JOHNSON.
