“Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.”

That quote should be written on the walls at Coleman prison

"Our attitudes can change our brain chemistry and our body's state of health."

Yes! Just changing your mind about anything (especially studying Physics ) can rewire your brain...But Neuroplasticity slows as we age. Eat more beef, liver, eggs, and shrimp and less bread, potatoes, pizza, pasta, and fruit...And for "goodness sake", stay away from Christmas cookies

Yes! Please Do! That just might help them!

...And when someone screams at you from their golf cart, instead of yelling back "Take a Chill Pill" or "Kill Yourself" you might try "Take a Folic Acid Pill".

No. No anger issues at all, either before or after. Have taken folic acid for 25+ years. The new medication is Vit B complex. Both were prescribed by doctors for separate conditions.

Smile What great advice

This is really timely. I had about 4 episode's of minor TIA's and was seen by a series of Dr.'s and almost all but 2 said it was because of a "clot". A wonderful Neurologist who was doing some consulting work at the Village Hospital from the Cleveland Clinic, which is one of the very top Clinic's in the world on hearts talked to me as I was at the end of my teists and there were loads of them. She said I did not have a clot but rather my episodes were the result of age and very low levels of Vitamin B12. Of course I ran to the internet to see what the heck this B12 was all about. It totally confirmed the episodes I had experienced mapped right along with expected results if you were very low on B12. One of the advantages of having a TOTV's is being able to share for others our experiences. Regarding the Village Hospital. I spent 5 days in the hospital 3 one and 2 the other and went through the ER by ambulance so I had the advantage of seeing it in both the ER and Regular Floors. It demonstrated the Nurses, and Aides were well qualified and it was excellent care. BUT the tools to do their job's are sadly lacking. Their computers are lousy along with the software, some of the "hand medical" equipment failed on a regular basis, things like pillows, etc are scarce and hard to find and it generally failed from a basic "management" standpoint. You have to give the staff credit as it is clear they take great pride in their work and have to overcome some hurdles to provide the fine support for their patients. Rating wise I would give them a 5 for support and care and 1 for management.

Stay away from carbohydrates like sugar, fruit, bread, pasta, potatoes, and rice. if you want to sweeten something, use the tiny Splenda tablets you can get from Amazon. The age-old con "an apple a day keeps the Doctor away" is still with us...it should be "an apple a day keeps Doctors (aka, AMA Stooges) in vacation homes and yachts".

I only supplement vitamin C and D along with Magnesium that helps speed up the body healing process as we age. D also helps with calcium uptake.

Low blood oxygen is usually caused by obesity and couch-potato-itis. Stay away from carbohydrates and get Aerobic activity...Increasing the heart rate exercises...combined with deep breathing exercises multiple time a day will solve this along with any sleep problems as well - especially as we age. A rowing machine and even a sauna are excellent. "Walking" won't bring your heart rate up enough.
DO BE ALARMED BY THIS STORY..... MY husband did all of the above. It was explained to me that as people age their bodies do not absorb the nutrients from the food and in many instances, supplements are necessary. As the saying goes, “ please don’t confuse your google search with my medical degree”

Thank you for saving me the trouble of pointing that out. In return, I'll spare everyone my opinion of this thread

But how do you know you have a deficiency in those supplements without tests?
C is fine, the body soon lets you know if you are taking too much of that!
But the body retains what it cannot absorb of most other supplements, and that is when they become a problem, and not a benefit.
Overloads of some attack vital organs like kidneys, liver etc.
A balanced diet should take care of most peoples needs regarding vitamin intake.
I cannot understand why people need to supplement, if they have not had a relevant test to find out they have a need.

Hence the qualifier "Usually". If proper dietary and lifestyle adjustments are not correcting any deficiencies, then supplementing is critical. I would hope everyone here is having annual blood work done and has a competent, reasoning, and ethical Doctor. My own blood work reveals no deficiencies but I have determined that C, D, Mg supplements are beneficial as we age. After this thread, I am going to start eating beef liver again.

Good luck to you all.

A very dear long time friend of mine suddenly passed away at age 67 a little over two years ago while taking an afternoon nap. It was quite a shock as she was very active and apparently physically and mentally healthy. An autopsy was conducted to determine the cause of death. She had suffered no heart attack or stroke; it was quite mysterious. Many samples were taken and sent away for laboratory analysis. It turned out she had so much potassium in her blood it had stopped her heart. She was keen on supplements and thought she had enough medical knowledge to self prescribe as she had been a veterinarian's assistant at one time. That was a deadly misjudgment.

I knew that potassium has been used in lethal injections to stop a subject's heart but I was shocked that potassium taken orally as a supplement could stop a heart. My physician confirmed this fact to me. Medicowesome: Why does heart stop in diastole when plasma potassium level rises?

As I lived in Los Alamos, NM at the time I knew or knew of some of the women taking significant amounts of L-tryptophan who suffered the repercussions enumerated in the following links. My former wife had been involved with them and was pushing me to take numerous supplements which I refused to do. The lead woman was a nurse. As a pharmaceutical grade was apparently not approved or unavailable in the USA, she was buying it in large tins from Japan of a purity level used for administration to animals, but not humans. The women were manually loading it into capsules to be taken orally. The results were disastrous. These self prescribing women all thought they knew more than their physicians about supplements.

Consumption of Polyunsaturated fats probably have a greater negative effect on physical and mental well-being than carbohydrates. Dr. Micheal Eades has an excellent presentation on this but he shows up in google searches so I suspect that just negates his medical degree.

Lots of good info on that channel.
