In Episode 22 we continue to explore the 30-Day Alzheimer’s solution by Drs. Dean and Ayesha Sherzai. Vesime also shares some lessons learned from her recent experience with navigating the healthcare system. We hope you will take the time to listen or watch today’s episode. The takeaways from today’s conversation are:
Listen to your body.
Take charge of your health and be the advocate for your shared health care plan.
The brain and the gut are in close communication. What’s good for the body is good for the brain.
The NEURO9 and Thoughtful 20 are great places to start your brain health journey.
Be plant positive and add more plants to your plate.
As we shared last week, the NEURO plan aligns closely with the seven Perfectly Pl@nted pillars:
N: Be plant positive and add more plants to your plate. Avoid highly processed foods, processed meats, chicken and red meat.
E: Be physically active. You don’t need to go to the gym. Dance, walk, hike, golf, ski….do what you love but keep your body moving.
U: Find ways to reduce stressors in your life.
R: Restorative sleep is key to brain health and overall health.
O: Optimize your social connections and engage in activities that challenge you to use your brain.
