Amy Bloom is the author of ten books, mostly works of fiction, and her short story collections have been finalists for The National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award. Her latest book, In Love, is a memoir about her husband Brian's diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer's in his mid-sixties and Brian's decision to end his life on his own terms. This required traveling to Zurich, Switzerland, where an organization called Dignitas facilitates what they call “accompanied suicide." Amy talked with Meghan about what was involved in getting to Digntas and why even though assisted dying is technically legal in some states in the U.S., the process is much more difficult than most people realize. In addition to being an author and a professor of creative writing at Wesleyan University in Connecticut, Amy has also been a practicing psychotherapist for decades and she talks about how that role intersects with her writing life and what she's learned about relationships and compatibility after years of hearing people's stories and telling her own.      Guest Bio: Amy Bloom is the author of four novels and three collections of short stories, including Come To Me, a finalist for the National Book Award, and A Blind Man Can See How Much I Love You, a finalist for The National Book Critics Circle Award. Her most recent book is the widely acclaimed NY Times bestselling memoir, In Love. She has written for magazines such as The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, Vogue, Elle, The Atlantic Monthly, Slate, and Salon, and her work has been translated into fifteen languages. She is the Silverberg-Shapiro Professor of Creating Writing at Wesleyan University.

Well listeners, I did it! I rode my bicycle all the way across the United States! I biked with Team Biking to Remember. We started March 12 in San Diego, California and we made our way across 8 states using the Adventure Cycling Southern Tier maps. It took us 64 days and 3,080 miles to pedal from coast to coast and we reached the Atlantic Ocean on May 14th. Along the way we met up with Alzheimer's Association chapters, held events and with the support of family, friends, and complete strangers we were able to raise over $32,000 for the Alzheimer's Association. I met up with Andrea Parrott, my co-host on the Just Go Bike podcast to talk about the second half of the adventure.

It's a beautiful thing when we cater to people with different needs – and can help make daily life enjoyable for everyone. The Alzheimer's Association estimates 6.5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's today, and with Alzheimer's being as prevalent as it is, it's important that businesses and pillars of our community recognize and understand the disease. This is why Erin Caston has worked tirelessly, along with a board of like-minded local senior living professionals to create a Denton County chapter of Dementia Friendly America. This non-profit initiative educates businesses and different sectors of the community - restaurants, financial institutions, churches, etc. to better support those with dementia and their caregivers. They can earn a Dementia Friendly decal to put in their window, identifying them as business that recognizes those with dementia and treats them with respect. As people with dementia progress in their disease, it's common for them to isolate at home and retreat from the people and activities they knew. That's why it's such a gift when businesses are aware and accommodating of those with different needs - helping them return to activities that may enhance their longevity and joy. That's why Dementia Friendly's goal is to help them feel valued and wanted while respecting their needs. Topics discussed: - Dementia and Alzheimer's - Dementia Friendly - Senior activities - Alzheimer's / Dementia education - Community outreach - Dementia-friendly businesses - Senior-friendly restaurants Takeaways from this episode: - One way to think of Alzheimer's and dementia is ‘brain failure,' similar to how we view heart and kidney failure. Those who live with it still have moments of clarity and know their brain isn't functioning as it was. - Dementia Friendly prioritizes giving banks educational resources to prevent fraud and help employees recognize potential signs of dementia, along with phone numbers for support. - One way for restaurants to support patrons with Alzheimer's and dementia is to find ways to adapt, such as by amending their menu, so there are fewer choices, and to approach them slowly and calmly. - Faith-based support at churches is often important to older generations. Finding ways to welcome those with dementia and adjust to their needs, such as by shortening the service and involving music, is beneficial. - If you can continue to engage those with dementia and their loved ones in your community, then they're spending money on your business, which helps the local economy. - The Dementia Friendly: Denton County kickoff is May 25, 2022 at the Flower Mound Senior Center, 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. Resources discussed: Dementia Friendly America Website – find a local chapter: https://www.DFamerica.org Contact Dementia Friendly Denton County: dementiafriendlydentoncounty@gmail.com.

Episode 22:20 Your Disease Is NOT The Problem On last week's episode we talked about the ONE mistake every medical doctor makes: They focus their attention solely on treating symptoms and diseases without trying to identify and correct their CAUSE. The reason this is a mistake is simple: Treating symptoms does NOT help your body heal. Healing only comes from identifying and eliminating the CAUSE of your symptoms. On this episode we dive deeper into this very important topic. Specifically, we share how your disease is NOT the problem. Instead, your disease is simply the "signalling system" your body uses to let you know that there IS a problem... an underlying CAUSE to your symptoms and disease. Unfortunately, most doctors ignore this and limit their scope of practice to the treatment of symptoms. This does you, the patient, an injustice. On this week's episode we also share how, if you're struggling to discover the cure to a condition, you MUST find a doctor who will work with you on identifying and eliminating the CAUSE. Why? Because, without addressing the CAUSE, there's a good chance your body will not heal! A good example of this - one we talk about on the episode - is the treatment of High Blood Pressure. As you know, the typical patient with High Blood Pressure is simply given drugs. - Drugs that will only "mask" the problem. - Drugs they will have to take for the rest of their life. - Drugs that come with several negative side-effects. - Drugs that will do nothing to provide a cure! That is, although drugs can lower a person's blood pressure numbers, they will do NOTHING to correct the CAUSE of High Blood Pressure. As a result, the underlying problems that are CAUSING the High Blood Pressure will persist and continue to do harm to the person's body. Unfortunately, this problem is NOT limited to the treatment of High Blood Pressure. It applies to nearly ALL chronic conditions! That is, in nearly ALL chronic conditions - High Blood Pressure, Type 2 Diabetes, Fatigue, Headaches, Digestive Disorders, Alzheimer's, and Arthritis - drugs are prescribed to deal with the SYMPTOMS, while the CAUSE goes unaddressed. This has to stop! How? On this episode we lay the foundation for doing just that... and set the stage for our next two episodes: One which will discuss the idea of using Natural Solutions (as opposed to drugs) for treating chronic conditions. The other for sharing the three primary CAUSES behind nearly all chronic conditions. Give this episode a good listen as the information will change how you view your symptoms… and how you view your doctors!  Also, be sure to share this episode with a friend.

Dr. Lisa and JJ discuss the roles of estrogen in the body and the brain, as well as the connection between menopause and the risk of Alzheimer's disease. Many factors contribute to the risk for Alzheimer's, but a lot of them boil down to inflammation, and adjusting lifestyle can help reduce the risk.

Blueberry diet linked to lower breast cancer risk: New Zealand study Massey University (New Zealand), May 10, 2022 WELLINGTON (CIHAN)- Women might be able to reduce the risk of breast cancer by eating more blueberries, according to a New Zealand research. A Massey University study in which blueberries were fed to animals as part of their diet found they had a 50-percent lower incidence rate of mammary tumors. “Blueberries contain phytochemicals called anthocyanins, which may be responsible for the health benefits of blueberries,” Dr Janyawat Vuthijumnonk said in a statement. Tumours found in animals that received blueberries with fibre included (in pomace form), were smaller and less aggressive than in animals without blueberry consumption or in animals that received just blueberry juice.   “We also found circulating estrogen – the steroid hormone which plays a key role in breast cancer promotion – was lower in animals that consumed the blueberry pomace supplemented diet,” said Vuthijumnonk. Study finds that yoga and meditation can help minimize cognitive impairment UCLA, May 10, 2022 Inner peace and a flexible body may not be the most valuable benefits that yoga and meditation have to offer, suggests new research by a UCLA-led team of neuroscientists. The team found that a three-month course of yoga and meditation practice helped minimize the cognitive and emotional problems that often precede Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia—and that it was even more effective than the memory enhancement exercises that have been considered the gold standard for managing mild cognitive impairment. “Memory training was comparable to yoga with meditation in terms of improving memory, but yoga provided a broader benefit than memory training because it also helped with mood, anxiety and coping skills,” said Helen Lavretsky, the study's senior author. “Historically and anecdotally, yoga has been thought to be beneficial in aging well, but this is the scientific demonstration of that benefit,” said Harris Eyre, the study's lead author. “We're converting historical wisdom into the high level of evidence required for doctors to recommend therapy to their patients.” The researchers report that the participants' outward improvements in memory corresponded with perceptible changes in their brain activity. Using functional magnetic resonance imaging, they showed that subjects in both groups had changes in their brain connectivity, but the changes among the yoga group were statistically significant, whereas the changes in the memory group were not. Boost in nerve-growth protein helps explain why running supports brain health New York University, May 16, 2022 Exercise increases levels of a chemical involved in brain cell growth, which bolsters the release of the “feel good” hormone dopamine, a new study shows. Dopamine is known to play a key role in movement, motivation, and learning. Experts have long understood that regular running raises dopamine activity in the brain and may protect nerve cells from damage. In addition, past research has tied exercise-driven boosts in the dopamine-triggering chemical called brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and in dopamine levels to improvements in learning and memory. However, the precise way these three factors interact has until now remained unclear.  Led by researchers at NYU Grossman School of Medicine, the investigation showed that mice running on a wheel for 30 days had a 40% increase in dopamine release in the dorsal stratium, the part of the brain involved in movement, compared to levels in mice that did not exercise. The runners also showed a nearly 60% increase in brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) levels compared to their non-running counterparts. Notably, the increase in dopamine release remained elevated even after a week of rest. Additionally, when BDNF levels were artificially reduced, running did not lead to additional dopamine release. “Our findings suggest that BDNF plays a key role in the long-lasting changes that occur in the brain as a result of running,” says study lead author and neurobiologist Guendalina Bastioli, Ph.D. “Not only do these results help explain why exercise makes you move, think, and feel better, they also show that these benefits continue even if you do not work out every day,” adds Bastioli. High levels of exercise linked to nine years of less aging at the cellular level Brigham Young University, May 10, 2022 Despite their best efforts, no scientist has ever come close to stopping humans from aging. Even anti-aging creams can't stop Old Father Time. But new research from Brigham Young University reveals you may be able to slow one type of aging—the kind that happens inside your cells. As long as you're willing to sweat. The study, published in the medical journal Preventive Medicine, finds that people who have consistently high levels of physical activity have significantly longer telomeres than those who have sedentary lifestyles, as well as those who are moderately active. Exercise science professor Larry Tucker found adults with high physical activity levels have telomeres with a biological aging advantage of nine years over those who are sedentary, and a seven-year advantage compared to those who are moderately active. To be highly active, women had to engage in 30 minutes of jogging per day (40 minutes for men), five days a week. High fruit intake during adolescence linked with lower breast cancer risk University of Oxford, May 11, 2022 A paper in The BMJ sheds new light on the relation of diet with breast cancer and heart disease. The study reports that high fruit consumption during adolescence may be associated with lower breast cancer risk. A team of US researchers wanted to see whether fruit and vegetable consumption might affect subsequent breast cancer risk. They followed 90,000 nurses for over 20 years who reported their diet in early adulthood, of whom half also recalled their usual diet during adolescence. They found that high fruit consumption during adolescence (2.9 v 0.5 servings per day) was associated with a roughly 25% lower risk of breast cancer diagnosed in middle age. In particular, greater consumption of apple, banana and grapes during adolescence, as well as oranges and kale during early adulthood was significantly associated with a reduced breast cancer risk.  Videos: 1. Jimmy Dore – Rachel Maddow's Non-Stop COVID Lies 2. Zach Weissmueller – Forget the Great Reset.

Podcast Magazine Power Quotes From The Show Witnessing Radical Body Vitality Through Fasting "As you are able to improve the vitality of the body with a tool like fasting, you're going to be happier, process information better, and there will be parts of your brain that will be able to communicate with each other better and you'll be able to make sense of things. You'll be able to have a more powerful divine connection. Everything will work better and when we first start out on this journey, getting the vitality of the body is super important, especially for the brain and nervous system for radical health transformation." - Dr. John Lieurance Unpacking Fear vs Anxiety "I notice that so many people use the words, 'fear' and 'anxiety' often interchangeably and when I first became sober, I used to just be so consumed with fear. However, as I started to unpack it, I realized that fear is when a wolf walks through the door and your life is in danger; a totally natural, healthy response is to be in fear and get away in that moment. Anxiety is if you're sitting here and there's no wolf on the property and you're obsessively thinking about what would happen if a wolf walked through the door right now. Fear is, in its truest sense for me, something that is immediate and righteous but anxiety is imaginary and always future-based that has no basis in reality. So, how can we uproot that anxiety and have greater open awareness that keeps us grounded in this present moment?" - Luke Storey The Wounded Healer's Magic "The magic really happens when you take yourself out of victimhood and take ownership of your life. When we play the victim, we're just at the world's mercy and totally powerless. Opposite of that, when you transform into the wounded healer, you are the one that carries the real medicine that you get to share with others." - Cal Callahan Botanic Tonics | Feel Free Save 40% on your Botanic Tonics Feel Free order with the code WELLNESS40 at wellnessforce.com/FeelFree A feel good wellness tonic of ancient plants from the South Pacificand Southeast Asia where they've been used socially and in wellness for centuries.

Some cognitive decline is normal with age. However, more significant cognitive decline is primarily due to disease-induced dementias (such as Alzheimer's Disease). It also results from neurodegenerative disorders and chronic, prolonged degeneration of our neuronal pathways and functions. Drug discovery for dementias have been largely unsuccessful, leaving no good treatments for this collection of diseases. This had led to research examining areas that may aid in preventing (or more accurately, slowing) cognitive decline.

After he finished playing he moved into the coaching world and ended up coaching the Panthers, Hull FC, St Helens and later worked as an assistant coach to Tim Sheens at Wests Tigers. When Penrith Panthers' rugby league legend Royce Simmons disclosed in January 2022 that, at age 61, he had been diagnosed with dementia the previous year, many were in shock.Typically, the former Kangaroos hooker immediately set about not only exploring what he required to do to slow the dreaded condition's progress, his thoughts turned to assisting others who were affected by the disease – not just sufferers but their supporting families too.Within months, Royce's Big Walk (a registered charity foundation) as a reality and the support he has received by not just many VIPs of rugby league, but the Penrith district's community and beyond has been extraordinary.So, among other fund-raising initiatives for Royce's designated not-for-profit support organisation, Dementia Australia, Royce will walk – from May 17-26 – the 300km from his small hometown of Gooloogong (population less than 300) through Cowra, Carcoar, Blayney, Bathurst, Katoomba and across the Blue Mountains, arriving pre-match at Penrith's Bluebet Stadium the night the Panthers take on North Queensland Cowboys.Along the way there will be several sportsman's dinners or lunches, and a coaching clinic, to help raise funds for local rugby league on the route.You can support Royce's mission, Dementia Australia, junior rugby league and, in particular, the families who have or will go through what Royce himself is confronting, by donating or attending some of the functions from May 17-26.The tough-as-nails former Panthers skipper is tackling his Alzheimer's diagnosis just as he would any other opponent on the footy field – head on and with the benefit of his ‘team' and their supporters as his major priority.If you would like to donate and support Royce please visit the link below. https://www.memorywalk.com.au/event/royces-big-walk

Cocoa may enhance skeletal muscle function University of California at San Diego, May 3, 2022 A small clinical trial led by researchers at UC San Diego School of Medicine and VA San Diego Healthcare System (VASDHS) found that patients with advanced heart failure and type 2 diabetes showed improved mitochondrial structure after three months of treatment with epicatechin-enriched cocoa. Epicatechin is a flavonoid found in dark chocolate. The study published by the journal Clinical and Translational Science looked at profoundly ill patients with major damage to skeletal muscle mitochondria. The trial participants consumed dark chocolate bars and a beverage with a total epicatechin content of approximately 100 mg per day for three months. Biopsies of skeletal muscle were conducted before and after treatment. After the three-month treatment, the researchers looked at changes in mitochondria volume and the abundance of cristae, which are internal compartments of mitochondria that are necessary for efficient function of the mitochondria, and measurable by electron microscopy. After three months, we saw recovery – cristae numbers back toward normal levels, and increases in several molecular indicators involved in new mitochondria production.” Healthy habits may improve longevity, prevent Alzheimer's disease Rush University Medical Center, May 14, 2022 Everyday habits that serve as the backbone of a healthy lifestyle may keep your brain sharp and help you live longer, according to new research from aging experts at RUSH. A study recently published in the British Medical Journal found that people ages 65 and older who had a healthy lifestyle lived longer—3.1 years longer for women, 5.7 years longer for men—than their peers who didn't have the same healthy lifestyle. They also spent more of their remaining years without Alzheimer's disease. What constitutes a healthy lifestyle?Eating the Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurogenerative Delay (MIND) diet Staying engaged in cognitive activities like reading and puzzles Being physically active for at least 150 minutes a week Not smoking Limiting alcohol use (no more than one drink a day for women and two drinks a day for men) This latest study builds on ongoing research from RUSH showing that lifestyle factors can potentially reduce the risk for Alzheimer's disease and dementia by up to 60%, says Kumar Rajan, Ph.D., professor of epidemiology and director of the Rush Institute for Healthy Aging. Ozone treated water v. lethal microbial material   University of Alberta,  May 9, 2022 A University of Alberta research team has discovered that technology commonly used to decontaminate food industry equipment can also rid meat processing plants of lethal microbial material responsible for the human version of the ailment Mad Cow disease. U of A microbiology professors Mike Belosevic and Norm Neumann and engineering professor Mohamed Gamal El-Din demonstrated that infectious proteins found in the brain matter of cattle can be eradicated from water treated with ozone. The discovery could have applications in decontaminating wastewater in settings such as slaughterhouse effluents where infected neural material known as prions may be present. The ozone decontamination procedure can potentially be used to sterilize instruments used for neurosurgery, and prevent the transfer of infectious prions during surgical procedures. Prions are able to destroy and can still be infectious after being incinerated at heats of 850o C. In the wild, soil contaminated by a carcass of a deer that died of Chronic Wasting Disease can remain a source of infection for many years. The U of A research team's technique of using water treated with ozone to destroy prions is an improvement on current prion decontamination methods. Tai Chi Benefits Patients With Parkinson's Oregon Research Institute, May 13, 2022 Tai chi, an ancient martial art characterized by slow, flowing movement and meditation, helps improve balance and movement control for people with Parkinson's disease. The finding, published in The New England Journal of Medicine, is the latest study to show the benefits of tai chi for people with chronic health problems. Past studies have shown that tai chi reduces falls and depression among the elderly, and lessens pain for patients with arthritis and fibromyalgia. In the latest research, 195 people with movement and balance problems caused by Parkinson's disease were recruited from four Oregon cities. The patients were divided into three exercise classes that met for an hour a day, twice a week. One group took part in an extensive stretching class, another was taught resistance training, and the third group performed tai chi. After six months, patients in the tai chi group performed better on a number of measures related to strength, movement control, balance, stride length and reach. Resistance training also offered some benefits, and both the tai chi and resistance training groups had fewer falls than the stretching group. Vitamin B12 shows promise against ALS Tokushima University (Japan), May 13 2022.  An article appearing on May 9, 2022 in JAMA Neurology described a randomized trial in which men and women with the progressive neurologic disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) exhibited improvement in their condition after receiving a high dose of a form of vitamin B12 known as methylcobalamin.  Among the 126 patients who completed the trial, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Functional Rating Scale  scores declined by an average of 2.66 points for those who received the vitamin and by 4.63 in the placebo group—a difference of 43%. (Lower scores indicate increased severity of symptoms.)  This randomized clinical trial demonstrated that use of ultrahigh-dose methylcobalamin resulted in a 43% reduction in clinical deterioration as evaluated with the ALSFRS-R total score throughout the 16-week treatment period in the patients with early-stage ALS, Diabetes risk from sitting around University of Leicester (UK), May 12, 2022 A new study has found that women who stay seated for long periods of time every day are more prone to developing type 2 diabetes, but that a similar link wasn't found in men. Researchers from the University of Leicester Departments of Health Sciences and Cardiovascular Sciences revealed that women who are sedentary for most of the day were at a greater risk from exhibiting the early metabolic defects that act as a precursor to developing type 2 diabetes than people who tend to sit less. The team assessed over 500 men and women of the age of 40 or more about the amount of time spent sitting over the course of a week. It was found that the women who spent the longest time sitting had higher levels of insulin, as well as higher amounts of C-reactive protein and chemicals released by fatty tissue in the abdomen, leptin, and interleukin6, and which indicate problematic inflammation. This study provides important new evidence that higher levels of sitting time have a deleterious impact on insulin resistance and chronic low-grade inflammation in women but not men and that this effect is seen regardless of how much exercise is undertaken. This suggests that women who meet the national recommendations of 30 minutes of exercise a day may still be compromising their health if they are seated for the rest of the day.

In honor of Mental Health Month, we discuss memories. Why do we forget them? What causes us to forget? How do we comfort a loved one who has dementia? The last couple of months have been challenging in that my mom isn't well, but grateful that she is quickly recovering. Last year, we needed to move her into a nursing facility because of her dementia. It was heartbreaking. Seeing this vibrant outspoken woman's life change prompted me to find a comparison between depression and dementia. I've noticed not only my mom but some others I have known who have suffered from depression are also going through some form of dementia. Can this be true? I looked for a spiritual correlation between the two and didn't find one that dealt with spiritualism alone and did not have an organized religion association. What I was looking for was are we made to lose cognitive skills in order to forget our depression? Is it a form of letting go of the past? Lao Tzu quoted "If you are depressed, you're living in the past. If you have anxiety, you're living in the future. If you have peace, you're living in the present". A study of the association between depression and dementia by HealthDay News reported on WebMD. "Depression is a risk factor for dementia, researchers report, and people with more symptoms of depression tend to suffer a more rapid decline in thinking and memory skills. While the study found an association between the two, it did not prove a cause-and-effect relationship." A Healthline article on vascular dementia "Vascular dementia is caused by a narrowing or blockage in the blood vessels that provide blood to your brain. This reduced blood flow deprives your brain of much-needed oxygen, which can damage your brain very quickly. Numerous conditions can cause this reduced blood flow to your brain, including: high blood pressure diabetes aneurysm or blood clot heart attack stroke Of those, stroke is the most common cause of vascular dementia. Vascular problems, such as stroke, high cholesterol, and hypertension, aren't related to Alzheimer's disease, as they are with vascular dementia. There is no known cause of Alzheimer's, though your risk of developing it increases with age." I guess I'm trying to make sense of memory loss. I'm at the stage in my life where many of my friends and family are dealing with a loved one with dementia. It saddens me to see such beautiful people with beautiful lives lose their history. The poem for this week is Memories—dedicated to my mom; from my upcoming book Inspire Me: Awakening Dreams. This poem is also in my book Inspire Me Series Book 1 & 2 with excerpts from my upcoming book. Memories Today I go through my mom's memories I go through her pictures I go through her life's stories I find her in the past The memories she has forgotten The ones from long ago That linger in the glimpse of her life Today I go through my mom's memories The ones she has tucked away The ones her strokes cheated from her The painful memories erased What can I do to make your life easier? What can I say to erase your traumas? Do I ignore—when you forget? Do I keep your sadness in my heart? Today I go through my mom's memories The disappointments she kept close to her heart The wanting to be loved yet feeling abandoned The simple dreams she was deterred from The disappointments fade The abandonment fades The sadness lingers Today I go through my mom's memories And merge my memories with hers Feeling the sadness, the disappointments Wishing the sadness to fade I love you, mom   Inspire Me Series: Book 1 & 2 AARP article on the Difference Between Dementia & Alzheimers Symphony of Soul - Dementia a Spiritual Perspective WebMD - Scientists Shed Light on the Link between Depression & Dementia   Almost Bliss by Kevin MacLeod Link: https://incompetech.filmmusic.io/song/5032-almost-bliss License: https://filmmusic.io/standard-license
