theory and diversions

img_1503Cognitive decline is based on a theory of ”imbalance between synaptoblastic (building) and synaptoclastic (destruction) signaling in the brain”. New approaches are being tested from multiple interventions to “redress” this condition.

I’m following a composite program of optimism and gratitude based on the article and (my old borrowed) Rule of Six (borrowed from homeschooler-mothers). I want to see if I can have the “beneficial effect on overall cognitive performance, including memory, executive function, and psychomotor speed” found in the research.My experiment of one.

Rule of Six

1.Good books

2.Imaginative play (creativity)

3.Encounters with beauty (art, music, poetry,and the natural world—this includes our nature walks or outdoors)

4.Ideas to ponder and discuss (something to think about)

5.Prayer (silence or solitude)

6.Meaningful work (includes philanthropy of time)
the other essentials
1.daily exercise with interludes of rest

2.regular nutritious meals with interludes of fasting

3.and a variety of dietary daily supplements

Note:based on a medical article:Novel Intervention May Reverse Alzheimer’s Memory Loss
by Pam Harrison, connect :novel

“The program is not easy to follow,” one of the researchers acknowledged.I’m trying.

One thought on “theory and diversions
