A Note From Dr. Dave - October 25, 2017
What Happens To Your Mental Health as You Age
It’s obvious that your body changes as you grow older. While all the changes appear on the outside, your mind is also changing. You have probably noticed a brain fog or you’re more forgetful. You’ve noticed you are slower completing mental tasks or misplace things. All these subtle changes is your aging brain.
As you age your brain gets smaller. This is a result of neurons no longer talking to each other. This is due to deposits of fat that interfere with communication. There are things you can do to keep your brain healthy & improve your brain function.
Maintain A Well Balanced Diet
A balanced diet is crucial to improving how your brain functions. Carbohydrates are an important fuel for your brain. Wholegrains give your brain the energy needed to remember, make decisions, and think. Carbs improve your mood by boosting serotonin levels which are responsible for monitoring mood.
A low-fat, low-cholesterol diet keeps your heart and blood vessels healthy. Your brain relies on your blood vessels and if they are clogged your brain can’t function to the best of its ability. Eating food high in antioxidants helps keep your brain healthy. Fruits and vegetables prevent clogged arteries. Remember the slogan eat the rainbow … fruits and veggies are just that rainbow. A diet rich in nuts, seeds, legumes, fruits, and vegetables will fuel your whole body & mind. A reduced alcohol intake will also be beneficial. Alcohol is a depressant and can damage your brain when over consumed.
Keep Yourself Physically Fit
If your lifestyle is healthy then there’s a better chance that your brain is healthy. Being physically active makes you feel better both physically and mentally. 30 minutes of exercise on a daily basis is beneficial to your whole body. Blood & oxygen flow to your brain when you exercise. This helps improve your memory and increases reaction times. It has been proven that short 10 minute intervals of exercise 3 times a day can enhance your mind. Keeping physically fit will help you avoid a stroke and a heart attack. Heart issues affect brain function so remember; to take care of your body is to take care of your mind. Even though your brain is getting smaller, there are ways to improve mental health

A Note From Dr. Dave - February 6, 2017
“The World’s Single Deadliest Vitamin Deficiency”
“An estimated 85% of people in the U.S. are Vitamin D Deficient and Many Scientists and Researchers Consider This an Unrecognized Global Epidemic - Dr. Joseph Mercola”
As we make our way through the winter months in New Hampshire I think we can all agree that we are craving the warmth of the sun. Vitamin D deficiencies have been linked to many debilitating and life threatening illnesses; cancer, osteoporosis, multiple sclerosis, dementia just to name a few. While this deficiency is thought to be caused by insufficient sun exposure it can also be linked to a poor diet. Vitamin D plays many important roles in our wellbeing. Without the proper levels of Vitamin D our immune system would be unable to fight of infections.
Another important role for Vitamin D is bone strength. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, vitamin D is essential for “formation, growth, and repair of bones and for normal calcium absorption and immune function.” It has been said that a Vitamin D deficiency in your older years could lead to osteoporosis.
The best way to get Vitamin D is from sunlight. Our bodies are actually designed to get all the Vitamin D we need from exposure to the sun. Vitamin D can also be obtained eating wild salmon, tuna, milk, egg yolk, yogurt and orange juice or by taking fish oil. Realistically it is impossible to get enough Vitamin D from food, for example it would take 10 glasses of milk daily to get enough Vitamin D.
As a chiropractor I see patients on a daily basis with lower back pain and other chronic illnesses, we work to correct the ailment and find the source of your pain. Although I can adjust you and help alleviate your pain, you need to eat the proper nutrition, exercise daily and avoid anything that would negatively affect your health.
