from Chris Kresser New Hope that Alzheimer’s Can Be Prevented—and Even Cured

Quote: “However, there is a large window of opportunity—about a decade of SCI (subjective cognitive impairment), when people note cognitive changes yet still score normally on cognitive tests; then often several years of MCI (mild cognitive impairment), when cognitive testing shows abnormalities, yet people are still capable of doing ADLs (activities of daily living); then early in the course of full-blown Alzheimer’s disease. Therefore, it is important to seek evaluation and treatment as early as possible.”

Folks, this is what I’m after.

Rachel’s Current Supplements October 2017

This is what my supplement routine looks like.  If you have any questions about it, let me know!  It’s always evolving.  This is tailored to me, and everyone should have their supplements personalized. Continue reading

Just updated!

If you’re using a printout from my site, you will want to print again these just-updated posts.

  1.  I’ve just started adding Inositol powder to my morning shake routine to help CALM. I read that it’s important to take Inositol with glycine; specifically it mentioned if you are dealing with the symptoms on the aggression and anger side of the spectrum. Collagen contains a lot of glycine (one of the top reasons I take it daily, because I know I need a lot of glycine, and it’s been effective for me.)
  2. MCT Oil for metabolism / body fat loss

So, if you printed these posts before, please print them again, and carefully consider the ingredients you put into YOUR morning shakes and supplement routine.

BACK PAIN MUCH? Enter the Egoscue Method

I am taking a class with Stasia who owns Pain Free Clinic of Denver. She has several specialties for correcting body to functional movement (which means healthy movements for everyday living and tasks) as well as physical training.

So, she tells me that :

  • the Egoscue Method is the thing that fixed her back and neck pain.
  • It is important to READ the Egoscue Method book so that you know you are doing it properly.

This video describes including how Tim Ferriss was a skeptic at first but then he tried it and it worked for him, too.

It will take some time, but it’s mostly about relaxing on the floor! You could listen to your meditation podcast while you do the last relaxation exercise.
