How your snoring affects your well-being – “Healthy Attitude” podcast review

Bedtime may be the favorite time of the day for thousands of people, but it does not always represent rest time for everyone. Has the snoring of your relative or partner ever kept you awake at night? Yes, it has happened to all of us. But we must be aware of a reality: in addition to causing annoying noises, snoring can be an indicator that our companions are suffering from more than just a stuffy nose.Dr. Ana Carolina Bassol, a graduate of Mexico's National Institute of Respiratory Diseases, knows about this firsthand. The pulmonologist works at the Galenia Hospital in Cancun, in the south of her country, and has treated dozens of cases of sleep apnea, a condition related to snoring.This sleep disorder, known in the medical community for being underdiagnosed by professionals and neglected by patients, affects a significant number of Latin Americans in the 21st century. According to this study (in Spanish), 20% of middle-aged adults have at least mild sleep apnea and 80% of cases remai...

Dr. Daniel Amen Podcast Review: Memory Rescue – How to Stop Alzheimer’s & Dementia

Dr. Daniel Amen is one of the leading authorities on brain health – he is a physician, founder of Amen Clinics and BrainMD, a double board-certified psychiatrist and nine-time New York Times bestselling author.  I found this podcast easy to listen to with great tips from his Memory Rescue book (published in 2018) on how to take control of your brain. Here are the key highlights: Alzheimer’s disease is expected to quadruple in the next 35 years. What most people don’t realize is that this disease starts decades before symptoms appear. Based on imaging studies, a 59-year-old woman diagnosed with Alzheimer’s most likely had negative changes to her brain in her twenties. There is also no known cure on the horizon and it is estimated that 50% of people 85 or older will be diagnosed with it.  This may be a cause for people not wanting longevity in their life!   Depression has increased by 400% since 1987 and it now affects 50 million Americans. It is also a major risk factor for Alzheimer’s....

The Science of Yoga

I recently listened to an interesting podcast on Dr. Mark Hyman’s Broken Brain series about the science of yoga. This was a rather long podcast but it made a yoga believer out of me. Eddie Stern is a yoga teacher and author and he recently published his book, One Simple Thing: A New Look at the Science of Yoga and How It Can Transform Your Life. Yoga has been used for centuries for improving physical and mental health but how exactly does yoga do this? And how does yoga work?
Here are some of the highlights:

The author highlighted several studies conducted on the efficacy of yoga. One involved 68 participants and they found that sleeping diastolic blood pressure dropped by 4 points with an average drop of 7 points for both diastolic and systolic. In another study with middle school students, the yoga protocol raised grade point averages by 2.7% with 40 weeks of yoga vs. 40 weeks of a gym program. Yoga impacts the nervous system and the ability to have focused attention is dependent on...
