Moving on to the next post in the theme:
Improve your Life, Improve your Mind.
That’s according to Daniel Amen, an American celebrity doctor who practices as a psychiatrist and brain disorder specialist. I only discovered him (mainly on Youtube) recently and he’s fascinating to listen to!
He points out that brains run the stock market, the local markets, huge corporations, governments, schools, churches, families . . . and so it goes on.
Yet when did you last think about caring for your brain?
If you’re like most people, you only think about it when it seems to be going wrong.
What a huge mistake! Because our brains are who we are!“When your brain works right - you work right. When your brain is troubled, you have trouble in your life.” Daniel Amen Click To Tweet
Dr Amen states that we are not stuck with the brains we have now.
It seems that a low brain flow is the number one brain imaging predictor of Alzheimer’s disease. It is also responsible for many other brain deficiencies.
The bad news is
if you have a low blood flow and you do nothing to reverse it, you will end up with serious memory loss in the future.
The good news is
it can often be reversed. And that’s where this series comes in.
What amazed (and alarmed) me is that hypertension (high blood pressure) is one of the main causes of low brain flow. He points out if you put a water hose under pressure, less water comes out. Interesting.
If, like me, you have high blood pressure, you need to take the medication prescribed by your doctor, but aim at keeping it at the optimal range. (Discuss this with your doctor.)
Also any vascular or heart disease is likely to cause low blood flow. So ask your doctor to check your heart and monitor your blood pressure.
So during the next weeks we will be learning about things we are doing that may be harming our blood flow, and I will share with you ways you can improve your life as well as your mind.
Interested? Keep reading, and don’t forget to share anything you try and how it helps. We’re in this together!
