CBS Health News today tweets an article about preventing dementia with learning music. www.cbc.ca/news/health/learning-music-early-builds-up-brain-s-reserves-against-dementia. It reminds me of reading about a brain issue that a client recently came in with. He fills out a brain assessment form in office and his Temporal Lobe comes up. I work on the physical aspect of feeding the brain. I recommend other help if I feel it would be helpful, but, I feed the brain with everything I know.
Let’s talk about the Temporal Lobe. It is an area of the brain where abnormalities occur much more frequently than recognized. When problems arise with the temporal lobe, it can cause:
- memory problems
- headaches without clear explanation
- anxiety or fear for no particular reason
- abnormal visual or auditory distortions
- periods of spaciness or confusion
- word finding problems
- emotional instability
- mild paranoia
- aggression, internally or externally directed
I feed with supplements, every brain needs a little support. but there are things you can do daily to make positive changes on your own too.
- Experience life, experience – experiences! Do something to get excited about life!
- Sing! Songs are healing.
- Listen to music, but don’t just listen, separate out sounds. First the drums, then just listen to the guitar.
- Learn music, play an instrument or sing, yodel!
- Get sleep! More than 6 hours a night!
- Eliminate caffeine and nicotine
- Keep your blood sugar balanced, no skipping meals. Limit sugar, eat balanced proteins and carbs
Then, come in and see me and we will feed with the proper nutrition! It’s an investment in yourself and your future. See you soon!!
