Pat Faust, MGS, CAt
Welcome and thanks for visiting my site! Optimal aging doesn't need to be wishful thinking - it is remarkably attainable - if you know the path to ultimate brain health. And I can help you. That's
why I'm here. Hopefully you are here for the same reason. See for yourself!
Finally, Your Personal Coach for an Ageless Brain
I HELP PEOPLE LEARN HOW TO PREVENT ALZHEIMER'S IN THEIR LIFE
While it is true that:
· Our brain can change;
· We can recover aging losses;
· We can prevent Alzheimer’s disease;
It requires dedication and consistency in living a healthy
brain lifestyle to actually change your brain.
What I have found is that even though most people want these positive brain changes – it is an overwhelming process that is beyond their reach.
That is why I am personally going to be Your Ageless Brain Coach.
And because everyone’s brain is different, I will customize these steps to maximize your
Along the way, we will work on habits and changes; goal setting; memory strategies; organization; emotions and their role in chronic disease.
Since Alzheimer's disease is epidemic, experts around the world are touting the benefit of living a brain- healthy lifestyle. 1 in 6 of us are going to get Alzheimer's disease. Do you want to take the chance that
you will be the one? I can cut that risk. Contact Me!
It has been quite a couple of weeks here in the United States. First, we had the insurrection on January 6. When I teach about memory, I always talk about how easily recallable a memory is that has been encoded with emotion. I will remember how terrified I felt and how sad I was that the US had experienced such a thing.
But democracy survived when later that evening, Congress certified the results of the presidential election.
Fast forward two weeks and the inauguration of Vice President Camala Harris and President Biden took place. Again, another site I never thought I would see. There were more military troops protecting the White House than there are troops in foreign countries. But we have a new president and a new vice-president. The US needs to be resilient in these difficult times. There have to be some lessons learned over the past few years.
I participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s in October in Cincinnati. Even with the virus infecting scores of people, the Walk to End Alzheimer’s still broke the -$1 million mark. Congratulations to all of the countless volunteers, sponsors, walkers, and patrons that enabled the Walk to break that $1 million ceiling!
A couple of big causes coming up in February and March. On February 5, 2021, National Wear Red Day for the American Heart Association is celebrated. The heart and the brain are intricately tied together. If you have a bad heart – your brain suffers. You will hear more about the heart/brain connection in the near future.
In March, we will be celebrating Brain Awareness Week, which runs from March 15-21. During that week there will be a whole schedule of classes at 11am, 2pm, 7pm. And all of the classes will be free! I will tell you more about this as it gets a little closer. In the meantime – go to www.virtualbrainhealthcenter.com to see the entire list of events. This will be so exciting.
Please stay well everyone. We will get through this.
There are positive things that are happening right now, so I thought I would acknowledge them. We held the launch of the Virtual Brain Health Center this week. There were many wonderful people from around the country and Canada who joined us for a presentation or a class. We had everything from Gentle Yoga, Laughter Yoga to presentations on The Importance of Hydration to Your Brain Health Matters. Large communities are looking at what we have to offer. In this time of limited socialization, the VBHC can fill the void and be able to connect people from anywhere to enjoy a wide variety of programs. If you haven’t had the opportunity to be with us, go to www.virtualbrainhealthcenter.com and take a look at what we are offering throughout the month of October.
In the Greater Cincinnati area, the Walk to End Alzheimer’s was last Saturday. The format was very different this year due to the pandemic. This year – we walked Everywhere! Instead of walking in a very large group, we walked throughout our neighborhoods. The Walk committee planned many very creative virtual and social distance events to celebrate the walkers. The picture you see here is me and my granddaughter, Ellah. She has walked with me from the first year I started participating. She even did her own fundraising this year. I couldn’t be more, proud of her. In this year where we find many, many people dying from COVID-19, it is important to remember the plight of those with Alzheimer’s. This disease has no cure and no survivors. I will be fundraising until December 31, 2020. Please consider contributing to increase the possibilities of finding the first survivor.
Take good care of yourself,
