It’s the most common form of dementia in the United States. And it’s the sixth-leading cause of death.
Losing weight isn’t always easy.
But if you’re an older man who is struggling to shed pounds, I have some good news for you. You might be surprised to hear that it comes straight from the mainstream press.
I have a friend who flat out refuses to drink apple juice. Lisa swears that it tastes like rusty nails and I've never been able to convince her otherwise.
Did your mother ever tell you when you were growing up that you should eat your fish because it was brain food?
I know mine sure did. And if yours did too, well, then apparently we both owe Mom a great big thank you. It turn's out she was, indeed, onto something.
I'll admit it. I like a good old-fashioned Sci-Fi flick as much as the next guy and one of my all-time favorites is the 1957 classic "The Incredible Shrinking Man."
There's no doubt about it: We all lose a little something off our muscle as we age, and all the training and exercise in the world can't stop it.
I took your column regarding hormone replacement to my doctor. He’s never ordered progesterone, just estrogen because of the hysterectomy. For eight years, I’ve suffered with occasional hot flashes, mood swings, insomnia, and I can’t lose weight.
Anyway, three days later, his nurse called to say he did some research, and wanted to add bio-identical progesterone to my compounded prescription cream. Two weeks later, I feel remarkably better.
Bill Clinton had better watch out. He's gone vegan and I think I can already see his brain shrinking.
Politics aside, I'm not even kidding.
I know plenty of seniors who would pop pretty much any pill -- risks and costs be damned -- if it meant they'd never have to battle Alzheimer's disease.
Millions of seniors battle the three S's in their later years: the stoop, the shakes, and the shuffle. And most docs will respond with their own S: the shrug as they tell you it's just part of getting older.
