Memory fades as we age. But it doesn’t have to

For all Men growing old is a fact of life. The older we become, the process starts, we lose Hair, Libido, Sight, however the greatest fear is losing our memory. There is Hope, currently natural and prescription medication is available. Frankly, I prefer the Holistic and natural means to maintain all of my God given senses. If you feel that you are losing your memory both Short and Long term, please consult your Physician as soon as possible.

“Keep Sharp: Build a Better Brain at Any Age.”

Ten months into the pandemic, I turned 51 and did the math: I’m entering the final third of my life. I know that sounds grim, and I am hoping to get more time than that, but I often do these mental calculations because the clock of life inspires me to make the most of the years that remain. That constant tick-tock reminds me to fill the final decades with invigorating experiences to bank in my inner black box — a delightful cache of memories to replay over and over in my mind like a favorite movie.In order for my plan to work, however, I have to invest in my brain now to ensure that it stays sharp into ripe old age, even if my body starts to betray me. Accomplishing this is well within my reach, and starts with a basic truth: Unlike most any other organ in the body, our brains are not pre-ordained to wither away, lose power, blunt their edge or, worst of all, become forgetful.

Covid-19’s effects include seizures and movement disorders — even in some moderate cases, study finds Memories make us feel alive, capable and valuable. They help us feel comfortable with our surroundings, connect the past with the present, and provide a framework for the future. Truth is, this past year has resulted in a decade’s worth of memories for me. Besides continuing to operate at the hospital, I have been reporting around the clock from my windowless home basement on every aspect of the novel coronavirus — how it moves, the molecular keys it uses to gain entry, and what havoc it causes after entering the cells of the human body. And, when it became clear that Covid-19 was causing neurological deficits, from minor ones like temporary loss of smell and brain fog to more serious symptoms of a stroke, my worlds of brain surgeon and medical correspondent collided.
