Keeping Your Marbles...Maintaining Brain Health

One of the scariest things anyone can imagine is losing their independence, and for me it's even scarier to lose my ability to think and reason. Can you imagine not being able to figure out how to dress yourself, or forgetting the names of your loved ones? How about being away from your home and not knowing where you are or how you got there and not even being able to tell any one where you live? There are a number of my family members who have been afflicted with this awful disease. Both of my grandmothers had it, my great grandmother, several great aunts and my aunt all had it. It's horrible to watch someone you knew as a strong vital person retreat into a shell of themselves and eventually retract into the fetal position until they waste away. I don't know if my parents would have developed it because they both died relatively young.

According to alzheimers.net, some of the early warning signs of Alzheimers disease to watch out for are:

Alzheimers and dementia do not have to be  foregone conclusion in your life, even if you have it in your family. Take steps to improve your health and lifestyle and you may be able to maintain a healthy brain long into your golden years.

ICYMI...How about a sugar detox? I don't have a fancy name for this program but I can tell you a little about it. We'll begin on September 18th and end October 16th using Zoom. Each session will consist of a short presentation by me, followed by Q&A, discussion of challenges and celebration of wins.

If you want to get your energy back, lose a few pounds and generally feel better, this is the place for you. I'll share some of the strategies I used to eliminate sugar from my life and to get back on track in my own weight loss journey.

Won't it be nice to eliminate cravings, not feel that "hangry" feeling when your blood sugar drops, and to be able to control what you're eating?
