In our series of ideas for longevity and retention of cognitive power, here is our installment on more specific ideas for supplements. Of course we are not making any specific recommendations for curing anything — because someone might be angry with us for that. What I do here is go over some recent research from the resource I already mentioned. It is a place to start. Today there is so much information, unlike years ago, that you can find many books, many vendors, and even some wellness professionals to consult. Today we will just lightly take up some of the now myriad ideas. Let’s make use of what we have, with thanksgiving.
BTW – I have no connection monetarily with Life Extension or any other resource. Once long ago, I did offer connection to some supplements on an affiliate program, but that was more effort than it was worth to me. I never got any cash, for sure. Yet, I found that some people, often the very people who would have been most served for either knowledge sake or convenience sake, were suspicious and thought I was trying to make money!!!! to the point that they stopped their ears from the very knowledge they needed!!! In the first place, they buy from Wal-Mart, I think. They probably give up a lot of money to things make them worse. But I was and am and have been for a long time, offering this service to you, based on Bible expertise and real experience, and actual science — for free. For free. I used to ask for support –and when I was on the radio it was vital and some big hitters gave it — from their heart, for the love of God. Am I the slow learner? Or do I just act in love to my own hurt?
In a series more aimed at the grandparent generation, but not entirely forgetting the children, I talk about basic knowledge. More by way of introduction and pointing you to resources, I let you in on some things that have worked for me.
I have seen so very many people suffer needlessly because the doctors they were trusting didn’t tell them, for whatever reason, basic inexpensive things that would help them. I’ve seen a grandparent suffer needlessly with horrible nightmare in the nursing home because there was resistance to giving her vitamins. I’ve seen retarded people kept from good nutrition. I’ve seen people in their prime accept senessence because they believe that “there is nothing that can be done.” At the same time I have repeatedly seen people claw their way back from brain injury to health, back from retirement to new career, and back from unhappiness to youthfulness simply based on easily obtained supplements. I’ve seen an old man come up to organic food vendors at a farmers market to correct them and tell them there is no difference between organic and conventionally grown food. Since we knew the farmer and had seen his farm, there was nothing to do but pity this man and the “info” he was so loudly, boldly asserting. I’ve seen a mother with a sick child say “nothing can be done” and having money, still serve meals like just soup for dinner. Just weeks ago, a former high level manager told me he thought supplements didn’t really do anything. Here I sit, surrounded with citations to peer reviewed journals. This is not 1980 when that research was done outside the country and so you had to know how to get the info. Now it is done in the country. Now I have decades of experience in my own family. Still, I get told this. At least he was only airing an opinion, and not correcting me. So I told him they had helped me alot.
Now, I know that if I get too detailed with things like dosage, or tell you what can be reversed or “cured” with a supplement, then the AMA or someone else would come after me. Especially might this be so if I put out that I was a minister and was talking about children. Or old people. They are so vulnerable… that we have to keep scientific fact away from them, right? Anyway, I haven’t don that. I am just letting you know about a couple of resources that I use. I think this will give you a pretty good start on your own research. Please do start that right away.Don’t wait until your brain is so far gone that you can’t read — like I just about couldn’t. Fortunately, my self-perception is that I can read, so I persisted. And over time, my brain came back– pretty much.
Let’s walk together in faith, in hope, and in sharing what we find. Love and blessings!
