"One of the most vital and delicate organs in our body is our eyes – it’s a scary prospect to think about losing your vision."
Typically, a lot of the natural degenerative processes in relation to the eyes are irreversible. But there are some important things we can do to maintain eye health and avoid problems down the road. As with a lot of common health issues, your diet and nutrition are essential steps to preventing future problems.
So, here are the foods you’ll want to focus on if you’re interested in improving the health and functioning of your eyes.
"Who of us has lived an entire life without a cut that needed mending, a broken bone, a hospital stay, an emergency room visit or surgery?
Truly we could use more physicians following the golden rule for not causing any physical, emotional or financial and unwanted pain as stated by ‘FRCS’ in The Times, quoted by Reginald Pound in Harley Street (1967),
"A surgeon should give as little pain as possible while he is treating the patient, and no pain at all when he charges his fee."
An English proverb says it best, "The best surgeon is one that hath been hacked himself." Thus, he understands the trauma physical, mental and emotional. The surgeon recognizes the aftermath of a surgery and what risks imposed and benefits remain.
DR. DEEPAK SHARMA IMPARTS HIS EXPERIENCE FROM SURGICAL RESIDENCY ON THIS HEALTH INN SHOW...
00011When someone is first diagnosed with diabetes, it feels like the world changes overnight. Foods you might once have considered comfort foods suddenly feel like lurking enemies. Instead of eating to sate hunger or to enjoy the pleasure of a favorite meal, you start to eye each bite warily, to worry how it will make you feel or how it might affect your blood ... Read More
Anthony Hannon outlines the current evidence supporting beneficial lifestyle factors into four pillars of brain health.
First: stay physically active
This is a somewhat obvious lifestyle recommendation, as everyone now knows that physical activity is good for the body. But not everyone yet realises the extent to which physical activity boosts brain health.
Second: stay mentally active
Two of the cardinal rules of brain plasticity (changes in the brain) appear to be “use it or lose it” and “neurons that fire together wire together”. There’s also some evidence that people who maintain higher levels of cognitive (mental) activity may be protected from Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
Third: eat a healthy diet
Yes, you no doubt know this is good for your body, but did you realise a balanced nutritious diet (such as the one recommended here) is also good for your brain?
Most of the nutrients from food circulate through your brain via the bloodstream. So a healthy diet can directly improve the health of brain cells and may even slow down brain ageing.
Fourth: don’t stress too much!
The human body, including of course the brain, has evolved over many thousands of years. When we were cave-dwellers and hunter-gatherers, the stress response (“fight or flight”) served a very useful purpose in evading predators, obtaining food and other aspects of survival.
Would you like to know how alkaline foods can save your life and possibly prevent terminal and chronic diseases? Acidic foods are slowly, or not so slowly deteriorating your health right now. In fact the could be setting the perfect environment for chronic inflammation or cancer cells to grow.
The more you are concerned with having a healthy ageless body as part of your ageless lifestyle after 50, the more you will want to educate yourself on the power of alkaline foods. As you change your eating habits and move toward healthier eating and more vegan dishes you’ll notice that most of those foods are alkaline.
Coupled with a digital pen, new models from the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab can help detect dementia and other cognitive disorders earlier than ever before.For all of the advances in medical technology, many of the world's most widely-used diagnostic tools essentially involve just two things: pen and paper.Tests such as the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) and the Clock Drawing Test (CDT) are used to detect cognitive change arising from a wide range of causes, from strokes and concussions to dementias such as Alzheimer's disease.What's disconcerting, though, is that, with dementia and other disorders growing in prevalence, most current diagnostic methods detect cognitive impairment only after it starts affecting people's lives. In Alzheimer's, for example, changes in the brain may occur 10 or more years before the cognitive change becomes noticeable, and no easily administered test can detect these changes at the very earliest stage.
