So as we mentioned, Bob andI, any therapist typicallyhas worked quite a bit withpeople with cognitive issues. And we joke around now thatwe’re nearing 60 years old,our memory is— Not what it used to be. – Exactly. So how do you keep thatmemory going for yourself,your grandmother, whoever it may be. Because it’s oftentimesassociated with aging. – Right. – Very, very common. – Give yourself as muchof a chance as you can— Right. – Is what I say. – So we’re gonna give some good optionsthat you can do at home. A lot of it is diet, but not all of it. We’ve got five goodoptions and a few thingsyou want to avoid. So tune in and we’re gonna go right now. – All right, let’s go. – All right. So, the information I got,science-based, is by doctor,this book called “Diet for the Mind”by Dr. Martha Clare Morris. – Morris. – And she’s done a lot of great researchand she’s been involved with it. You know, this is herpassion, you can tell,she’s really involved with it. I’m not gonna cite allthe research she did’cause it was too much to recite, so— Extensive. – Right, if you want to getthe book and read it, go ahead. I’ve got my page number’s marked— There they are. – Where I had some reallyhighlights that I wantedto bring up to people. – I do the same thing. – There you go. So that’s the book, the reference,as well as our wonderful input. – Number one, and thesearen’t necessarily in order,but number one, proper sleep. If you can sleep on a regular routine. Bob, you read a whole book on this this. – I read a whole book on this. “How We Sleep” or “Why We Sleep”?By Matthew Walker. – The memory thing. – Yeah, the memory thing. But he went into this in great detail. Can have a devastatingeffect on your memoryand he also mentionedas two examples, Brad,Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher. – Oh. Both ended up with Alzheimer’sbut also both of themwere noted for gettingby on very little sleep. – Sure. – So what he goes, maybeit was a coincidence,maybe not, but you know, it’s just not,you know, if anybodythinks they can get byon four or five hours ofsleep on a regular basis,they’re kidding themselves. – It’s gonna catch up to you. – Yeah. – So the next one, andobviously as therapistswe’re gonna full-heartedlypromote this, is- consistent exercise. – And I’ve seen that againand again that, Brad,that it has an effect onmemory loss and dementiaand that it has a positive effect. – Right. – Right. – Right, as a matter of fact, right nowwith this COVID-19, mymother, who’s in her roomand they want her inher room because she’s— Right, she don’t understand— I’ve noticed in the last week and halfshe didn’t take her pills right this timeand she always does. And so I’m concerned about, we’ve gotta— She’s getting no stimulus,she’s getting no exercise. – Exactly, yeah, yep. – The number three, forget your,it doesn’t have to be aggressive exercise,just a nice walk. – Ongoing exercise. – And outside better than indoors,assuming the weather’s appropriate. So a nice walk. You don’t have to beaggressive and get hurt. – And nature is better than urban. – That’s a good point too. We read a study on that inthe last couple years as well. – So out in a nice peaceful area,flowers growing, et cetera. It all makes sense. The next one is learn to relax. There’s options, you know. Meditation or just sitting in a quiet areaand think about your breathing. – Breathing is huge. – Purposely, not just but actually slowing it down. – We’ve got some videoson breathing technique. There’s four-four-four,there’s four-seven-eight,I mean there’s all thesedifferent techniquesand they work really wellon taking your breathfrom being shallow to extendingit out and taking it inwhich relaxes you. Less stress, less cognitive issues. – Right. So get yourself in a quietarea with good posture. I’ll just briefly go through. Make sure you breathein through your nose,let your abdomen extend outso you’re not all tight. – There you go, and Bob, then you exhale. If you just do it in a slow manner inand a slow, controlled mannerout while you’re relaxed,it’s gonna help. And again, we have somevideos specificallyhow to go over that. – And it’s gonna help withall portions of your life,not just the memory loss things. – Exactly. – The next thing now, this is big. She really goes intofood and diet, obviously,since it’s the name of the book. But there’s a list we’ll go through. Number one, not necessarilythe most important,but it was up on her list— These are good foods, by the way— Yes. – What Brad’s alluding to. – Leafy greens. – Leafy greens are huge. – Right, and fresh is better than frozen. – Sure. – She recommends. – Sure, interesting. – So we’re talkingabout, you know, spinach,Bob, you know this better than I do. – Spinach, a little spinach . – That’s all you eat, isn’t it?- That’s all I eat. – But any, usualdarker green is better. – Well kale. – Yeah kale. – I don’t do kale usually. – Now the iceberg lettuce,the round ball lettuce. – Right, not as good as— Yeah, you’re not gonna get— The dark leafy greens are better. – Exactly. – The dark greens are better. – And we prefer organicand it’s pretty easyto get organic leafy greensnowadays in a grocery store. Maybe not now, but you know— It is a little tougher right now. – Right, but typically, on anormal thing, that’s usually,vegetables, you know. Asparagus, broccoli, yams,and potatoes are gettinga bad rap. And we’ve read this over the years,or over the last couple years. And you know, I grew up onpotatoes and so did my mother,and she’s relatively— So did I. – So I don’t know ifit’s the potato itself,it’s the fact of how theyraise potatoes because I— What you put on the potatoesquite often the problem. – Right, right, but anyways shewas not a big potato person. And then nutrient-dense- whole grains. – Right. – And that’s the trouble, is that a lotof the food manufacturerswill try to trick youand say it’s, you know, wholegrains and you literally readon the ingredients andthey aren’t as whole grainas they say they are. – Right, right. – So that’s a tough one. – Yeah, you need to do, youknow, a little homework,and go into the book on that a little bit. Like quinoa is a big one,though, that has some reallyunique characteristics thatother grains don’t have. I like oatmeal, but it’ssteel-cut, organic oatmeal. – You see, I didn’t know that. – And that it’s really— And I don’t usually eat oatmeal,I will occasionally like itwhen I can’t eat anything else. – But it’s a really good source of fiber. It is, you know, it’s alittle high in the carbsbut it’s got some good nutrient value. – Not terrible so, though, and I think— Yeah, it’s not, that’s why I eat itand I don’t put any sugar on it. – Wow. – I used to, oatmeal you’vegotta put brown sugar on it— Right, right. – Cup of oatmeal, cup of sugar . – Yeah, exactly. – I’m just kidding. And then this big, shewas really big on berries. – Yeah, especially thedarker the berry, the better. – Yep, blueberries, blackberries. – Blackberries, yeah we’vereally added these to our diet— Sure. – A lot. – And I think the organic are better. You don’t have thepesticides or whatever elsethey may put that’sprobably not gonna help you. – You know, they havethe list of dirty dozenof things that you definitelywant to buy organicand then you have the clean15 I believe they call it. – Sure. – Things that you can actually buy— We’ve got a video on that. – Yeah, we’ve got a video on that. – I don’t how they would look it up. – “Bob and Brad Dirty Dozen. “- Would probably pull thatvideo up, yes, very good. And now those shouldall be eaten every day. – Right. – That’s what she’s saying. But now she has a shorter list— The greens, veggies, grains,and berries you’re saying?- Right, yep, yep. And there was a couple morebut those were the big onesthat I really thought were good. – Those are pretty safebecause I see those namesmentioned again and again. – Book after book, yeah. – Yeah, book after book, right. – Weekly, fish once a weekshe’s saying is adequate enoughto get enough benefits fromthe fish for your mind. Which I thought, well that’s nice’cause then you don’t haveto buy so much fish . – Well, you gotta worry about the mercury. – You know, she said mercury,from what her studies,does not affect the mindin regards to memoryfrom the study she found. – Interesting!- But it’s bad in other ways. She’s not saying it’s good by any means,but she’s saying in respect to the memoryand the cognitive part that wasn’t so bad. There was other things inthe fish that are in the fatof the fish, so try to get the fat off,because that’s where theseother things that are— Interesting. – So yeah, that was interesting in that. And again, the smallerthe fish, the better. – Right, because it’s notsucking in the mercuryas much then, it doesn’t— Or other— Right, other junk. – Other junk that’s in the ocean. – There’re a little bit like sponges. – Yeah, so if you’vegot a tuna that’s beenout in the ocean— A long time. – For five years,absorbing all these chemicals and whatnot,versus a little sardinethat’s only been out therea few months or whatever they are. – Exactly, that’s how to think about it. – Exactly right. So, also poultry. You know, she said poultry,again I’m not gonna— That could be a little controversial,definitely recommendingorganic and free-range, I mean,’cause other they’re beingpumped with hormones and— Well, there’s poultry farms in this areaand I’ve been to the placethat manufacturers it,and those chickens do not getout of their little cages,they can’t even walk. – Yeah, they’re so big and fat. – And the don’t walk, insidethey jump ’em full of foodor hormones to grow ’em as fast— I mean that can’t— Like 30 days, like 33 days at that timewhen I was working withthat, it was 30 years ago. Literally, at the factorywhere they process them,they’d get out but theycouldn’t hardly walk. They didn’t have to getaway, they wouldn’t get away. – So you can’t tell me that’s good. – Right . – You know what I mean, soI mean you’re gonna wantto be careful about what poultry you eat,and probably limit it. – And that brings us intoother things to avoid. This is, everyone accepts this. – Everybody knows this. – Highly processed foods,fast foods, sugary foods. – Sugar, yeah, the sugardefinitely you’re gonna havean inflammatory effect and Ithink they’re all discoveringthat now the more you eatanti-inflammatory food,the better it is on yourbrain, your health, overall— In general. – Everything. – Exactly, so when you go shopping,don’t shop the middle of the rows. You know, shop the outside of the aisle. Your fruits, your meats,vegetables, beer . – I was gonna say, is theliquor on the outside?- Hey, she said it was good!She said one. – One. – One a day. One glass of wine and ifyou’re a man, a larger— Maybe two. – Maybe two. – So I’m thinking maybethree. – Where does three come?- Yeah, andthree’s on Saturday night. – All right, that’s me too. – All right. – All right, thanks for watching.
