Welcome and thanks for visiting my site!
Does Optimal Aging feel like pie in the sky wishful thinking? Has the pandemic knocked you out of ever feeling comfortable again? And finally, does your brain feel like it is trying to operate in a thick fog?
My Boomer Brain was originally designed to alleviate the brain changes associated with aging. Of course, preventing Alzheimer’s has always been the top-most objective. Now, whether you have had Covid-19 or not, your brain might be scrambled, because of the excessive stress we are enduring. We are all at risk of pandemic brain burnout.
I am here to help you work through the brain fog and recover your brain and your life.
Finally, Your COVID-19 Brain Health Coach
It's Time to Reclaim Your Brain
These have been unprecedented times. Whereas we might have been concerned with the aging losses our brain was sustaining (it happens to everyone), now we have the consequences of a chronically stressed brain interfering with our thought processes and causing us to have gaps in our memory. As scary as this is – we can reclaim our brain. So, are you ready to get your brain back?
This is a process –
You will get lots of information to review so that you understand what happened and what we need to do to start changing your brain.
Then we will use that information to craft a customized program for you. (tools, exercises, and worksheets)
3. Finally, coaching for accountability, support, and facilitating change
And because everyone’s brain is different, I will customize these steps to maximize your brain outcomes.
Along the way, we will work on habits and changes; goal setting; memory strategies; organization; emotions, and their role in chronic disease.
Alzheimer's disease is still an epidemic, even during this pandemic. Experts around the world are touting the benefit of living a brain-healthy lifestyle. 1 in 6 of us is going to get Alzheimer's disease. Do you want to take the chance that you will be the one? I can cut that risk.
From the Sharp Brain’s newsletter: There is a lot of backlash and concern over Aduhelm – the treatment drug for early-stage Alzheimer’s disease. The FDA (Food and Drug Agency) seems to have moved too quickly in approving this drug. The concern is that the research did not show valid support for effectiveness. There is definitely more information to come on what is going to happen to this heavily touted Alzheimer’s treatment.
AARP’s Staying Sharp program is worth a look. You don’t have to be an AARP member to access their Brain Health section of www.aarp.org. Staying Sharp, however, requires a modest fee for participating in the program if you are not a member. Members of AARP can participate in the program for free. Staying Sharp is a workable lifestyle-oriented program to improve brain function and reverse aging brain processes.
The next What’s Happening will be after the Cincinnati Walk to End Alzheimer’s is completed. The Walk is on October 2. It has been so rewarding to be a part of the planning committee. It gave me an inside look at how to organize a major fundraising event. The Cincinnati Walk is #3 in the United States for fundraising. This organization is so impressive.
If you would like to donate, just go to www.alz.org. My team is My Boomer Brain (of course!). You can donate to me or directly to the team. It is a tax-deductible donation.
