  • Happy group of adult friends having fun

     3 Reasons Why Staying Social Matters to Your Thinking

    How many friends do you have? Do you rarely see family, go out for the evening or join your community for an event?

    You may not realize it, but your social life may just be bad for your brain.

    In the immortal words of Bette Midler, “you’ve got to have friends.” Little did the Divine Miss M know that in addition to our souls, she was hitting a high note on brain health as well.

    A recent AARP survey found that adults 40 and over with a higher number of social connections report better brain health.

  • Telehealth is here to stay, but it will go through an evolution like all new technology shifts. A new study evaluated performance of teledermatology. The results were mixed. There were incorrect diagnoses and missed diagnoses. Treatment recommendations were not always consistent with guidelines. Prescriptions frequently lacked disclosure about possible adverse effects.  The study was limited because there are not yet large numbers of cases to evaluate. A significant limitation to the study was the authors were unable to assess whether clinicians seeing these patients in traditional in-person encounters would have performed any better.

    On balance, telehealth is a good thing. It has the potential to expand access to more patients, and the medical literature is filled with examples of telehealth systems providing quality care.

  • Squeezing in a little exercise improves concentration and actually makes your meeting more productive. Waking up the mind and body creates a better atmosphere for listening to the innovative thoughts and ideas being delivered and better prepares us for putting those ideas into action when we return to the workplace.

    Invite a person from your Leadership Team to deliver a “3-5 minute” exercise break. Exercise helps increase energy levels, as well as concentration levels.  Break up the presentations where sitting for long periods can put the mind, not to mention other parts of the body, to sleep.  The break also creates a different type of exposure for your attendees to interact with leadership!

  • Re-Posted from John Patrick’s Blog on Accelerating Cancer Treatment…I remember being at a technology conference in 1999 when teenagers Sean Parker and Shawn Fanning demonstrated a digital music service called Napster. It was the beginning of a revolution, and it made a lot of sense to me. The rock group Metallica sued Napster in 2000 and the momentum of music sharing slowed – temporarily. I never saw the problem as theft. I saw it as an industry unwilling to give up the status quo and give consumers a way to purchase music. It took Steve Jobs, the iPod, and iTunes to ignite major growth in digital music.

  • In a recent article, Healthcare Selfies: Consumers Go Mobile for Better Health, Dr. John Patrick features mobile devices for consumers to monitor their health. One such device is AliveCor. It has a heart monitor that attaches to the back of an iPhone and creates a 30-second EKG. A team of engineers at Cornell University has developed a smartphone camera attachment that takes a photo of a single drop of blood that a consumer has placed on a strip, and in a matter of seconds a colorimetric analysis displays cholesterol level. Read the article for additional devices. The pace of mHealth adoption will accelerate; self-monitoring and self-diagnosis are here to stay.

  • In a recent interview by Bottom Line/Health, our own Dr. Cynthia Green was asked to suggest her best brain workouts. It’s not what most of us think. Crossword puzzles, online classes and other such activities are not necessarily the best for improving memory and preserving overall cognitive function. The latest research reveals that it takes more than quiet puzzle-solving and streaming lectures.

    In fact, some activities that we once thought were time wasters may actually help build intellectual capacity and other cognitive functions.  And, the most important steps to keep your brain performing at optimal levels are lifestyle choices.  Brain workouts that include getting aerobic exercise (at least 150 minutes per week), maintaining a healthy body weight, not smoking and eating a diet that emphasizes fruits and vegetables (low in refined sugar and white flour)

    However, research now tells us that there is more to a healthy brain workout.

  • Did you wonder how the Paris attacks could actually create a stronger “World Kindness Day?” True human kindness was shown, at its best, in the days following the attack as witnessed by many of us in the numerous media stories. Tweets, during the attacks, showed how ‘kindness spreads faster than hate.’ Tributes were laid to victims of the Paris attacks at the foot of the Monument a La Republique, in many cases by strangers for strangers.

    Dr. Stephen Post, author of Why Good Things Happen to Good People: How to Live a Longer, Happier, Healthier Life by the Simple Act of Giving, discusses kindness in his lectures across the globe.

  • Buckwheat honey for a cough, peppermint for IBS, turmeric for arthritis, Chia seeds for high cholesterol, salmon for inflamation…“I think most people think food can’t possibly be as potent as drugs, but I see the powerful direct benefits all the time,” said Dr. Melina Jampolis, in a recent discussion with CNN and posted in an article on Fox8.com. A small, growing number of physicians are “prescribing” foods not only for weight management, but also to prevent and treat chronic diseases and CNN spoke with medical nutrition experts to unearth the specific foods they recommend. And you don’t have to be a chef or nutritionist to take advantage of these healthy choices.
