How to Keep Your Brain Healthy For Life

by Christiane Northrup, M.D.

 

 

After menopause, many women start “losing names,” struggle to find words, or feel mentally foggy.  This can cause some women to worry about getting dementia and even Alzheimer’s disease.  The reality is, our brains continue to create new cells for life! After menopause we just move more into the right hemisphere of our brains. Watch my video, and learn how you can keep your brain healthy, and even get smarter, as you grow older.

    I want to add a few important facts here that enhance the onset of Dementia: ARTIFICIAL SUGARS like Aspartame. Google the effects of this horrid substance, then consider what they are found in such as *DIET* soda and other foodstuffs. Also, factor in consuming processed foods; frozen foods i.e. TV dinners and such; and canned commercial food, and food sold in plastic food containers. Another horrible element that impacts brain degradation is being a victim of DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, and even experiencing a TOXIC environment as a child can impact health later as an adult. One final point that has been shown to contribute to memory loss is lack of education. The more education you have, the better your brain functions. KEEP LEARNING!!! My mother now has advanced Dementia. She incorporated into her life all of the above I listed regarding food, and was a victim of DV for 38 years until my dad died. She stopped learning after high school, and sadly, she believed she knew everything. She got in the way of herself! Now, in full time care, doctors want to prescribe her RISPERDAL! This is a drug that is prescribed to schizophrenic and bi-polar patients. Studies regarding Risperdal have stated that this drug should NOT be given to Dementia patients for it can cause DEATH! Drugs.com says *Risperdal is not approved for use in psychotic conditions related to dementia. It may increase the risk of death in older adults with dementia-related conditions.* BEWARE how YOUR family member is being cared for by medical professionals…there is a HUGE increase in prescription trends in America…especially toward children and the elderly!!!!

    Another thing I’ve learned that helps memory is called “super brain yoga”. You can Google it, but the basics are:
    You cross your arms with the right arm on top, pinch your ear lobes with your thumb and pointer finger, with your thumb on the front of your ear lobes, then do squats. It aligns your left/right brain hemispheres. I watched a news piece on it and it really helped students with autism and ADD/ADHD. They said one boy with autism was head butting, kicking, biting, etc and he was calm after doing this for a bit.
    I try to do this daily, but usually forget!

      Do you cross your arms and pinch lobes at the same time you do squats? With knee replacements, does it matter how deep the squats are?

    You are brilliant!
    You just made so much sense and the way you explain is not condescending or fear based
    I am so inspired by you and want to say THANK YOU Again,

    I really think it needs to be mentioned that starches are not harmful to humans and should not be avoided. See Dr McDougall and the China Study for proof.

      @Judy: The China Study has been thoroughly debunked by multiple sources. Google something like “china study debunked” to see why. It’s another case of someone cherry-picking data to fit his thesis.

    Dr. Northrup, I want you to know you have made my life! I became aware of you and your book Goddesses Never Age in early spring 2015 and read it before a trip to Greece in late June. I made major changes in how I live, think and eat and am now feel so young and vibrant and tell everyone about your books.

    The next May, my mother had a heart attack and I was armed in helping her achieve full health and continue to live independently. She will be 85 in July and still does everything, driving, errands, church, etc. all on her own. She is a tough cookie getting her to change her ways, but I credit everything I’d come to know and practice over the previous year. I say all that to simply give you a huge THANK YOU!

    I do have a big question about facia. I’ve heard you talk about it and want to learn more and work on it more, however, I recently came across something called the Facia Blaster. Do you know anything about it? I have some concerns about the technique.

    Much love,

    Ruthie

    Thank you for your advice. I am going right now to pitch out the chocolate biscuits I just purchased.
    I am one of those who lives in fear of Alzheimer’s I watched my Brother dissapear and other members of the Family change. At 74 yrs I am very afraid.
    I was interested to see aerobics helps. I have been diagnosed with Stenosis my Dura tube damaged. I wondered how I could do aerobics or significant exercise to help my brain.
    I have to admit to having a disconnect with hope lately. Forgetting words and of course names.
    Thank you for you wisdom and kindness.

    Dr. Northrup, what a nice video. I am from the Netherlands. Does it mean that processing painful memories is a good thing. I did not understand that from the video. I do a lot EFT and that really helps. But you also said something about sometimes you forget old painful memories. I did not understand that. Maybe it is my English.
