Diet: Natural, unprocessed Meridian Health Protocol Review foods (fruits/vegetables) are low-glycemic, which maintains a steady blood sugar level--minimizing fatigue, irritability and foggy brain. They also contain anti-oxidants which neutralize the stresses in the body. Foods high in omega 3 fats (fish, flax seed, and almonds) are important for nourishing the brain cells. Since Dave's taste buds are changing, I am finding creative ways to fit in 5-8 fruit and vegetables a day. I cook sweeter vegetables such as yams, carrots and corn; add fruit and flax seeds to his smoothies; and use plum sauce with fish. Supplements: Dave takes high grade vitamins & minerals (Usana nutritionals) to fill the gaps in his diet and raise the level of anti-oxidants. He also takes gingko biloba, which increases blood flow to the brain; CoQ10, a powerful anti-oxidant and energy booster; and a pharmaceutical-graded omega 3 (fish) capsules. Dr. Amen's book 'Making a Good Brain Great' has a more extensive list. Purpose in Life: Dave has a good reason for getting up in the morning. He volunteers at woodworking shows, Search and Rescue fund-raising events, Alzheimer's Society, and is a Nordic walking leader. He has also chores around the house, which change with his abilities. I remember one night I asked him how his day was..."Great". Why? "Because I got to wash your car. Socialize: Dave loves being with people, even though he may not recognize them, or be able to carry on a fluent conversation. He is activating his memory, problem-solving, speaking and listening areas. Variety: Despite Dave's routines (watches the weather report at 7:40 and 8:00 am, runs on Monday and Friday at 8:10 am), he likes to do something new every day-walking and biking in different areas, road trips, or helping me with shopping.
