While these are great goals for the New Year, choosing a gym or a trainer, for those of us over 40 or those of us suffering with musculo-skeletal aches and pains, a regular gym may not be our best choice. For those who wish to remain physically active the rest of their lives, life can get in the way; statistically: 8 out of 10 will develop back pain, 7 out of 10 shoulder instability, and 5 out of 10 hip or knee pain.  Eventually, these statistics can lead to surgery or disability.  So how can we mitigate these facts?  Let's see what Terri B. chose to do, in her own words. "After...

Staying Fit after 40

01/02/2019 - 11:18am

4 ways your workout should change after you turn 40.... "There's no getting around biology: with the passage of time, we all become a little stiffer, squishier, and wobblier.  That said, the 40-something you, can be as strong as ever."  This is the message claimed by Vonda Wright, MD, an orthopedic surgeon and mobility specialist, in a recent TIME article.  The trick she says, is exercising smarter. As an example, my wife, Sherry's, idea of staying fit has changed over the years.  When she was younger, it was aerobic dance, circuit training, and walking.  In her late 4...

“Baby, Its Cold Outside”…and so is my libido

11/29/2018 - 2:21pm

Spark up a ‘merry and bright’ romance for the holidays and 2019! Whether it’s the mistletoe, crackling fireplace, or bringing in the New Year …there’s something about the holidays that lends itself to romance.  But, for many women (48.2%…to be exact), female sexual dysfunction (the female equivalent of erectile dysfunction) is a barricade to a healthy sex life.  A lot of times we chalk up our decreased libido to “a normal part of aging” or “being married a long time…losing that honeymoon feeling,”; however, if it’s bothering you and you wish that you could get that “spark” back…you c...

What Type of Exercise is Best for the Brain?

11/01/2018 - 12:49pm

Exercise is just as good for the brain as it is for the body. “Back in the day, the majority of exercise studies focused on the parts of the body from the neck down, like the heart and lungs,” says Dr. Ozioma Okonkwo, assistant professor of medicine at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. “But now we are finding that we need to go north, to the brain, to show the true benefits of a physically active lifestyle on an individual.” How does exercise work to increase brain function? “Exercise likely improves brain health through a variety of ways. It makes the heart bea...

Human Longevity – Is Aging Simply a Matter of Choices?

As we all know, we live in a city dominated by senior citizens. Although the story that follows may sound commonplace, the point of this article is that it should not be so. A Cute Elderly Couple As I pulled my car into our local grocery store parking lot recently, I came upon a traffic jam. Looking ahead, I noticed the line of cars backed up as an elderly couple, a man and woman slowly made their way across the crosswalk. The man was using a cane, the woman, a walker. Both appeared to have multiple disabilities: back, knee, hip weakening. Everyone in the line of cars waited respectfully. When...

The Problem With Back Pain

08/30/2018 - 2:06pm

Throughout my childhood, I was fortunate to have two of the most wonderful grandmothers in the world. Sadly, beginning in early middle-age, both suffered from back pain: deformities caused by scoliosis, degenerative discs and osteoporosis. Their last fifteen years were hampered by a poor quality of life until they were finally unable to care for themselves at all. I vividly recall how proud my grandmother was when I received my medical degree. She told me, “I hope you can straighten out my bent body now.” Her statement hurt…research had little to nothing to offer at that time. Focus now on a s...

5 Brain Tests You Must Know About

A Hopeful Solution to a ‘Grim Reaper’ “It is impossible to escape the grim news about Alzheimer’s disease,” so says Dr. Dale Bredesen, The End of Alzheimer’s. “There is no reliable way to prevent it, and the disease has for decades beaten the world’s best neuroscientists. Despite the billions and billions of dollars spent by governmental agencies, pharmaceutical companies, and biotechnology wizards to invent and test drugs for Alzheimer’s, 99.6 percent of what we have come up with have been abysmal failures.” A sad commentary, because we fear Alzheimer’s as we fear no other disease. Why? ● It...
