Weekly Health Tip

  • Brain Health

    December 12, 2018

    Think back when you were a kid.  Did you know any adults who had Alzheimer’s?  If you are even close to my age, the answer might be no.  I grew up with grandparents, so I was probably around more older people than most.  I did not know anyone who had a bad case of dementia, no matter what the diagnosis.

    Of all the problems of old age, most of my patient’s share my concern:  I don’t want to lose my marbles.  I don’t want to live like that.  My patients tell me they don’t either.  But I notice more and more nursing homes.  More and more problems with memory.

    There is seldom one cause. The causes add up and now we have cities full of nursing homes and care centers.  The things I do for my health, I do for the long game:  old age.  I know many older people who are vibrant, and I tell them, “You are my model.”

    To stay vibrant, we need to do what we can to insure brain health.  Here is an articlethat nails one of the causes.  And have a MERRY CHRISTMAS!
