Curtis Smith heard a loud pop while working in the back yard and hurt his back in 2013. He had hoped that with time it would heal itself but eventually he discovered that he had a serious injury that eventually forced him out of work and unable to live without pain. He did some research in the U.S. to find the best solution however he soon discovered that his surgical options were limited with Artificial Disk Recovery since the procedure is limited to one disk in the U.S but he needed three of them replaced. Not only that, the costs were substantial so Curtis and his wife knew they had to find another way.
Eventually he found his answer in Germany and we were fortunate to interview him from the hospital just days after his spinal surgery that will change his life! This is the first time we were able to interview someone so close to their surgical date and it is a very informative and fun interview. Enjoy!

The Onwards Medical Breakthrough
Compound reverses symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease in mice, research shows
Today’s Medical Breakthrough comes from Saint Louis University researchers. “A molecular compound developed by Saint Louis University scientists restored learning, memory and appropriate behavior in a mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease, according to findings in the May issue of the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease. The molecule also reduced inflammation in the part of the brain responsible for learning and memory. It reversed learning and memory deficits and brain inflammation in mice that are genetically engineered to model Alzheimer’s disease,” Farr said.”
