To my surprise, brief terror, and ultimate delight, I was invited to join the hosts of the Huntsman World Senior Games “Active Life” podcast two weeks ago, for a conversation about this blog and its aims. Hosts Kyle Case and Lil Barron learned about the blog when one of their former guests – and mine! – triathlete Sue Reynolds, shared this interview on her Facebook page.
If you don’t already subscribe to “Active Life,” I encourage it. It’s fun and always informative.
Speaking of podcasts, there is a fire hose of helpful information about the role of diet, exercise, sleep and stress management in preventing or alleviating symptoms of Alzheimer’s in these two conversations with neurologists Dean and Ayesha Sherzai: a looong one with Rich Roll, and this shorter one on the PCRM podcast “Exam Room.” One point made in both podcasts by Dr. Ayesha Sherzai really stuck with me: there is no medication on the market today that can either reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s, or reduce the severity of symptoms in people who are already exhibiting them, as much as exercise can. Whatever you can do to increase your levels of physical activity, do it!
