Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) & Dementia: Not Good News

This is not good news for those of us who played Rugby in college, or participated in boxing, or basketball, or any other violent sports.

But, like every other toxic exposure from our past, we can take measures. The body naturally heals: it is self-healing – given the opportunity and a healing environment.

The brain, of all things, is ‘plastic’ and can be molded. There are a dozen or more posts in this Blog regarding that. Physical, chemical, and mental. Keep it simple.

Get adjusted. Eat well. Exercise appropriately.

Nowadays life is more complex than in the past. Dealing with all of our exposures is an active exercise in the pursuit of health (detox is not just a buzz word).

Search this Blog and you will find much that can support you whether you are in Relief, Rehab, or Recovery mode. It is all about promoting health – getting on the path of health from where ever you are. Use it to your ┬ábenefit.

Strategy vs Tactics

This is the best explanation I have seen. (No surprise it comes from Seth Godin!)

Why even bother to think about strategy?

There’s confusion between tactics and strategy. It’s easy to get tied up in semantic knots as you work to figure out the distinction. It’s worth it, though, because strategy can save you when tactics fail.

If a tactic fails, you should consider abandoning it.

But that doesn’t mean that there’s something wrong with your strategy. Your strategy is what you keep doing even after you walk away from a tactic.

A real estate broker could decide that her goal is to get more listings.

And her strategy is to achieve that by becoming the most trusted person in town.

There are then 100 tactics she can use to earn that trust. She can coordinate events, sponsor teams, host community meetings in her office, sponsor the local baseball team, be transparent about her earnings, hire countless summer interns at a fair wage, run seminars at the local library, etc. …

It doesn’t matter if one or two or five of the tactics aren’t home runs. They add up.

But if once, just once, she violates someone’s trust and expectations, the entire strategy goes out the window.

Tactics are disposable.

Strategy is for the long haul.

Two evidence-based healthy eating patterns: More Research; not News

https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/893184?src=wnl_mdplsnews_180302_mscpedit_wir&uac=254030MJ&impID=1572061&faf=1

‘Participants received individual, in-person counseling from nutritionists on how to adhere to each of the two evidence-based healthy eating patterns. The vegetarian diet excluded meat and fish but included dairy and eggs.’ (emphasis mine)

‘This was the first “intervention study that follows the principles of evidence-based medicine, in a general population at low risk of cardiovascular disease, that compared these two beneficial diets,” Sofi told theheart.org | Medscape Cardiology.’

A healthy diet should be “nutrient dense; rich in vegetables and fruits, whole grains, legumes and nuts; low in refined grains and commercially processed foods with added sugars, saturated fats, and sodium; sustainable; culturally relevant; and enjoyable.”

‘Both diets had similar low calories and consisted of 50% to 55% carbohydrates, 25% to 30% fat, and 15% to 20% protein.

The participants ate a similar number of servings of cereals, fruits and vegetables, potatoes, sweets, and olive oil on both diets, but on the vegetarian diet they ate more legumes, nuts, eggs, and dairy products, as well as flaxseed and avocado (to compensate for the lack of essential fatty acids from fish).

Both diets were similarly effective for weight loss. After 3 months, the participants lost a mean of 1.88 kg and 1.77 kg while on the vegetarian and Mediterranean diets, respectively.’

Although these diets should be investigated in larger studies in other populations, this research suggests that “a low-calorie healthy vegetarian or Mediterranean diet pattern may offer a possible solution to the ongoing challenges to prevent and manage obesity and cardiovascular diseases,” Anderson said.
