4 Exercises To Sharpen Your Brain
Think of your brain as a muscle: It gets stronger with exercise. Your everyday mental tasks are like walking, but how about a real workout? Try these simple exercises to boost your brain power and clear away the fog of forgetfulness.
1. Use your non-dominant hand
Tackling new tasks improves brain capacity in younger people and has a restorative effect on mental faculties that are declining. Boost your brain power right now by performing everyday activities with your non-dominant hand. If you're right-handed, use your left hand to eat, drink, comb your hair, and brush your teeth. Try writing your name with your non-dominant hand or put your mouse pad on the other side of the keyboard.
Aluminum And Alzheimers Disease
Large amounts of aluminum are usually found in the brain of a patient with Alzheimer's. This has led others to think that the disease is caused by using aluminum cooking pots and pans or ingesting oral antacids or antiperspirants containing aluminum.
It's a nice thought but one with no scientific basis. Professor Luigi Amaducci of the Department of Neurologic & Psychiatric Sciences at the University Of Florence said other patients with Alzheimer's don't have aluminum plaques in the brain which rules out this metal as the cause of the disease.
"There has been some concern in recent years that dietary aluminum may lead to Alzheimer's disease or senile dementia in older people. This concern arises from the fact that greater levels of aluminum are found in brain tissue of people dying from Alzheimer's disease than in brain tissue from people dying from other causes," according to Dr. Myron Winick, director of the Institute of Human Nutrition, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in The Columbia Encyclopedia of Nutrition.
Be A Brain Scientist
"To think is to practice brain chemistry." - Deepak Chopra
Have you ever heard someone say, "Well, I'm no brain scientist¶"? Quite recently I had lunch with a friend while he was on a break from work. When he ordered a beer I raised my eyebrows in mock astonishment. He replied "It's not like I'm performing brain surgery later."
But we are all brain scientists. Our thoughts really do affect our brain chemistry. And we can be like surgeons in our ability to carefully excise negative thoughts from our gray matter.
Our patterns of thought are simply habits, but they are grounded in rich neural circuitry. Like deer in the woods, our thoughts form paths that will most likely be retread unless we consciously set out to find a new way. The first step to that new way is to be aware that thoughts can either be unconscious or conscious.

Ten Ways To Nail Your Next Medical Procedure And Hammer Down PainReport for the medical procedure wearing clean underwear and trying hard to appear cool. Fasting is such a nasty business. Strip down. Suit up. Did she say this clown-gown ties in the front or the back? It's a joke to call this faded elephant bib a "gown." When did all my spider veins join up to become a Brooklyn street map!?¬†
"Follow me, please." I feel as if I'm six and being led to the principal's office.¬† Turn right, then left, through these double doors, a right and another left. I will never find my clothes again. Enter Room B. where masked men hover and mumble in tongues. . . Greek, Latin, Klingon? Not one of them can be a day over 16. Shudda gone to the bathroom. "Remove your glasses, please." So now I'm shivering, starving, cranky and blind.
I have skillfully (yes, brilliantly on occasion) sailed the treacherous shoals of the corporate world without so much as breaking a sweat, but then I wasn't wearing paper slippers, a dust-rag dress and absolutely no underwear. Can caffeine withdrawal cause permanent brain damage?
Sit down/stand up/roll over/shoulders back/chest out/don't breathe or move/drink all this down at once/this will only hurt a bit/try to hold it in till you get to the bathroom. Woops. What is this! Obedience school? How did I end up in a Gary Larsen cartoon?
It is well within your power to complete every medical challenge successfully and gracefully.¬†
Once the details of a procedure have been explained to you, set aside time to prepare. Think through the procedure several times (in as much detail as possible) as if you were watching a movie. Keep it simple. You don't have to administer this procedure. You simply have to endure it. Picture the desired outcome. As you watch your mind-movie, keep your eyes closed, your body completely relaxed and (most important) your breathing deep, slow and steady. A couple repetitions will usually do the trick. When it is time for the actual test, commit to this same slow-paced breathing.
Mental and physical tension creates and magnifies discomfort. If the procedure brings on brief and unavoidable pain, relax into it. Breathe into it rather than fighting against it. Tension sets up a vicious cycle: the more it hurts, the tighter you get and the tighter you get, the more it hurts. Break this cycle by keeping your muscles relaxed and your breathing steady.
The medical staff works for you. All their attention is focused on completing your procedure perfectly the very first time. Their preoccupation may make you feel invisible and insignificant but it is difficult for them to do their best job and be warm and fuzzy at the same time. This is not the time to engage them in conversation about how insensitive your mother-in-law was about the turkey stuffing.
Know that even the most sophisticated and experienced adults (yes, doctors, nurses and SWAT cops) feel vulnerable under these circumstances. Apprehension about test results and loss of control can make anyone feel like a private in boot camp instead of a general. This is not boot camp and you are still the general in charge of your own mind and body.
Do your homework. Don't be shy about discussing with your doctor the details of your test, your condition and how to interpret the results. There are wonderful medical reference books and online sites that explain your procedure in detail so you will know in advance exactly what to expect.
If you don't own a computer, go to the library and use the computer there. A patient, experienced, understanding librarian will assist if you need guidance. Online sites are rich with valuable information that can ease your concerns. However, online medical sites do not grant you a medical degree but do help you become a wiser patient. You will find clear answers to logical questions. Why and how is this test performed? What should I do to prepare and what follow-up information should I expect? Are there questions I should bring up to the doctor or nurse? What are the risks? How will the test feel?¬† Take the mystery out of the situation.¬†
Rein in your imagination
Don't bite off more than you can chew. "My cousin's neighbor's son-in-law's boss had this exact same procedure and he dropped dead as a doornail within the hour. DEAD!"¬† This kind of creative fiction is rarely accurate and is always counterproductive. Stay focused on what is necessary to get you through the next five minutes.
Prepare in advance a concise and detailed list of your allergies, your current medications, and the symptoms that led to this procedure. Don't assume that the technicians will have an up-to-date list or that your memory will be reliable.
You have easy access to medical tests, procedures and shared information that doctors in other countries can only dream about. Unlike your parents and grandparents you have the opportunity to find a problem while it is still small instead of simply waiting for the dreaded symptoms. You have access to techniques and equipment that will almost always put the odds in your favor. Best of all, you are born into an era when prevention is as important as treatment. You are part of a new generation of doctors who have been trained to include the patient as a valued part of the medical team.¬†
Request a printed detailed copy of all test results. There is always a minute-by-minute log describing your surgery and most lab reports come with a definition of each test and the normal range for each. Order your own copies of important X-rays. Label medical files carefully. Inform your family where the files are kept.¬†¬†¬†
