  • Are “senior moments” a part of the aging process?
  • Mental workout powers up your brainpower
  • Another shortcut to a sharper and more flexible brain

Is your brain starting to play tricks on you?

I’m talking about those little glitches that keep you from remembering the name of a co-worker or the title of a song you’ve been listening to since you were a teenager. You knew it yesterday so why can’t you remember it today?

Well, your brain can be a tricky thing. Some memories seem to stick to it like glue. Others come and go as they please. A few might even feel like they’re leaking out faster than your brain can store them.

You may attribute these brain slippages to age, calling them a “senior moment”. But I’ll bet you know plenty of people older than you who are still sharp as a tack. So are these mental hiccups really age-related?

Not necessarily. Continue reading

  • Nuts: No longer a forbidden snack
  • Here’s what a handful of nuts every day can do for you
  • Beware! There’s one nut you should never eat

My days here at the clinic can be pretty hectic. And like many people, I don’t always have enough time to sit down and eat a meal at lunch. On days when that happens, you’ll often find me munching on a handful of nuts.

Snacking on nuts comes with a few immediate benefits. They’re a great source of protein. Plus, they’re also very high in healthy fats. This combination goes a long way when it comes to satisfying hunger.

However, they also come with some pretty hefty long-term health effects that make them a perfect snack any time of the day, whether you’ve missed lunch or not. Continue reading

  • Reverse damage to your aging brain
  • More mitochondria means more brainpower
  • Three nutrients that fuel your brain

In last issue, I introduced you to Dr. Bredesen’s MEND protocol.

This amazing treatment regimen is the first to show memory loss, cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease are all reversible. This is true even in patients who carry the APOE4 gene – a variant that puts them at greater risk of Alzheimer’s.

It’s a personalized program that deals with much more than the brain. That’s because everything going on in your body affects your brain chemistry. This includes the foods you eat, the way your genes are expressed and even the condition of your mitochondria. Continue reading

  • Reverse Alzheimer’s and boost brain volume
  • No drugs, psychiatric care or side effects
  • Dementia-busting tips you can put to use immediately

Today, there is no medical cure for Alzheimer’s disease. So the true story I’m about to tell you brings a great deal of promise to anyone hoping to revitalize their brainpower.

You see, a 66-year old man with well documented early Alzheimer’s disease and mild cognitive impairment signed up for a very unique program.

When he started, the volume of his hippocampus (which is critical in consolidating daily information from short term memory to long term) was smaller than 83% of men his age. He also had reduced glucose utilization, which is indicative of Alzheimer’s. Additionally, he carried the APOE4 gene variant, which placed him at greater risk for the disease. Continue reading

  • Over-the-counter allergy meds linked to Alzheimer’s and dementia
  • Are antihistamines shrinking your brain?
  • Here’s how to relieve allergy symptoms… without losing brainpower

I don’t think I know a single person who has never taken an antihistamine. In fact, the use of these over-the-counter drugs is so commonplace that it’s easy to forget that they come with serious side effects.

One of the worst, by far, is their link to the development of Alzheimer’s and dementia. Continue reading

  • Foods that age your brain

If you want to get through life without developing dementia, the best thing you can do is feed your brain.

You see, that old expression “you are what you eat” is especially true when it comes to your brain health. Eat the wrong foods – like ones that are high in sugar and salt – and you’re more likely to lose brain power as you age. They literally shrink your brain.

But eat the right ones and you can actually cut five years off of your brain’s age. Continue reading
