Coconut Oil topically?

Since coconut oil is not recommended for us (I'm 4/4), i am wondering if I can continue to use it as a moisturizer.....after all, it does get absorbed and into the blood stream....
Thoughts anyone?

Re: Does anyone else use a rebounder?!

Brian, sorry....I didn't see the question until now. The vibration machine is also called a vibration plate....you stand on it and it sends vibrating pulses through your body. It's the same theory as a chi-machine, which I also have.

Re: Does anyone else use a rebounder?!

I have had a rebounder for years and have started using mine again regularly. It stands to reason that the G-force of jumping continuously for 15 or 20 minutes, which provides a great lymphatic massage would do the same for the brain's lymphatic waste disposal described in this article. https://www....

Re: Dutch patients with dementia to request euthanasia

interesting discussion and one that I'm sure we all have very individual thoughts about. Being able to leave this existence on my own terms is far more comforting than the idea of spending years in a vegetative state not knowing the faces of my 4 beautiful children, my dear husband, my grandchildren...

Maintaining weight with intermittent fasting

I have started intermittent fasting and have no problem at all having my last meal at 7.00 pm and not eating before 11 or 12 the next day. It's very easy for me to go that long without food. I would actually go longer if I didn't have to worry about weight loss. At 66, I'd rather have a couple of po...

Re: Breakfast Suggestions

For breakfast I routinely make a muesli of 1/3 cup gluten free oat bran, with 1/3 cup gluten free muesli mix (with nuts and seeds), 2 tablespoons of fresh ground flax seed, 1/2 cup fresh organic blueberries (or raspberries) and almond milk. It is followed by a protein shake with cocoa powder (also a...

The great escape!

Since learning of my 4/4 status at age 65, (now 66), the worst aspect of this news was the idea that I could lose the essence of who I am and forget the faces of those I love.....the prospect of becoming an emotionally empty shell is absolutely terrifying to me. I have found the peace of mind to kno...

Re: Does anyone else use a rebounder?!

I have had a rebounder for years and I like to put on oldies and start jumping! Rebounding to music breaks the monotony for me. If weather permits, I put it outside on the deck to increase the benefits of getting fresh air and sunshine on top of a good cardio and lymphatic workout!

DHA supplement versus eating fish

The more I read about this, the more it appears we need to be eating fish as opposed to taking a DHA supplement. Anyone else eating mackerel and/or sardines regularly? I'm planning on shooting for 5 servings a week, as, at 66, I have no time to waste trying to prevent cognitive decline. This was an ...
