Hi all, Dr. Mike here with your health tip of the week. This article tells of how living a healthy lifestyle now will help you have a vibrant future. Alzheimer’s disease appears to be a leading cause of death in the US, just behind heart disease and cancer, according to a study published in the peer-reviewed journal Neurology. The study, conducted at Chicago’s Rush University Medical Center, found that Alzheimer’s disease is underreported as a cause of death. Of the more than 2,500 seniors followed in the study, almost a quarter developed the disease, and it was the cause of death in about 400 people.

St. Louis Chiropractor/Vibrant Living Chiropractic/Berries Keep the Mind Young

Hey everyone Dr. Mike here and I wanted to share another good reason to eat your berries.  One side note to this article is I would recommend a mix of berries and not as heavy on the strawberries as they are one of the most common sprayed fruit.  Always remember to try and get up to 70% of your diet from your fruits and veggies that way you get all the essential vitamin and mineral nutrients so your body can work well and age gracefully!!!!

Women who eat more berries could knock a couple of years off their “brain age,” according to a study in the Annals of Neurology. “The bioflavonoids in berries seem to protect the brain from the effects of aging, presumably by decreasing inflammation and providing the brain with powerful antioxidants,” said lead study author, Dr. Elizabeth Devore.

Dr. Michael Thompson/Vibrant Living Chiropractic/Sun Exposure and Sun Protection Guidelines

Hey this is Dr. Mike and as the summer gets started I wanted to share with you my Summer Sun Guidelines, including a link for natural sunscreens.

You may be one of those people for whom summer is far too short!

But like it or not, most of you only have a few short months to enjoy the great outdoors in most of the continental US. Why waste it dealing with two of the most vexing hassles of the outdoor summer season?

After spending six or more months stuck inside from rain, snow and sleet, you can’t wait to rush out and spend all day on a Saturday or Sunday in the sun. Not only is the golf course beckoning, but so is yard work, your kids’ sporting events, and the grill.

It’s easy to overdo your sun exposure in your quest to finally spend some time outdoors… especially when your skin is lily-white from being inside for months – and not used to the sun.

There are many simple lifestyle changes you can make to radically decrease your risk of sunburn, such as choosing your essential fatty acids wisely, increasing your consumption of raw vegetables loaded with skin protecting antioxidant phytonutrients, and avoiding processed foods and sugars. MORE
