Just a quickie before the holiday sets in. Dr. Daniel Amen, the specialist who writes all those brain books? He offers a tip that what’s good for your heart is also good for your brain (e.g., omega-3). Another easy-to-remember tip? What’s good at fighting off the effects of age tends to also be good for the brain. Try some resveratrol, the antioxidant naturally occurring in red wine (you can get it just by itself, fairly inexpensively nowadays, too, in liquid or pill form). It’s a relatively safe supplement to the diet that promotes nerve generation and DNA repair. I’ll have to look into it some more to get you more information, but my physical trainer once handed me an article on it and suggested I try it. I just found an article on eHow.com that explains the effects of red wine in stroke recovery if you’d like to check it out.
To our healing,
