How To Protect Your Eyesight
If you’re one of the 40% of Americans who wears glasses or contact lenses for distance viewing, you probably believe your bad vision is genetic. It’s not. But the belief that myopia — or nearsightedness — is hereditary is so prevalent that no one even questions it. If you have trouble seeing faraway objects, you’ll just be given a prescription for glasses. Your eye doctor isn’t interested in finding out the true cause of your poor eyesight. Myopia Epidemic And that’s a shame, because the rates of myopia are rising in epidemic proportions around the world. It’s even worse in ...

How Fast Is Your Dog Aging?
All of us who love dogs are acutely aware that the lifespans of our canine companions are short - much too short. And while the years we spend with a beloved pet seem to fly by, dogs don't just suddenly die when they reach a certain age. They grow older in stages just as we do, but at a tremendously accelerated rate compared to humans. Your four-legged friend may still look and act like a puppy much of the time, but there are age related changes taking place inside him despite his youthful good looks and high energy level. The lifespan of a dog depends primarily on his size, breed (or breed mix), and health status. As a g...

Outlook & Research into Alzheimer ’ s
Developing new treatments for Alzheimer’s disease is an active area of research. Scientists are testing a number of drugs to see if they prevent Alzheimer’s disease, slow the disease, or help reduce behavioral symptoms. There is evidence that inflammation in the brain may contribute to Alzheimer’s disease and that drugs to cut down on inflammation may help. One recent study showed that two non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs — rofecoxib and naproxen — did not slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease in people already diagnosed. Scientists believe, however, that anti-inflammatory dru...

Nutrient for Tinnitus Treatment
If you’re suffering from tinnitus, I’m pretty sure doctors and ENT specialists have told you something like: “I’m afraid you’re just going to have to live with it” or “It’s just age-related hearing loss.” What is tinnitus? Tinnitus, the constant ringing, thundering, whooshing or whistling in the ears, is aggravating and nerve-racking. It robs you of sleep. It shatters your focus and concentration. And it drowns out your hearing, because of all the background noise in your head. Tinnitus is not a disease, but rather a symptom of some other underlying health condition. Ma...

Happily, some of the risk factors for mental aging are open to intervention. Diet, exercise and mental activity all play a role in healthy aging, but there are also natural pharmaceuticals that may be of use in staving off decline.
