Re: 4/4 teenager

Ditto everything above plus no alcohol, no smoking. And exercise as a life habit.

Re: Age 24 and 4/4: Trying to Plan a Healthy (Student) Life

Congrats on beginning your PhD in California! I have kids slightly older than you -- one was recently hooded and a second will defend and be hooded this summer! It's a journey, pace yourself. One recently said, "I'm tired of listening to the special dietary needs of those around me (gluten-free...

Re: Sleep!

LIght is very important: 1. You said you use good sleep hygiene. So that includes a very dark room? No light. If you need a night light to find the toilet, etc, there are motion-activated red lights. Or switch your bed lamp to a red light bulb. Cover the numbers on your clock display, etc with red f...

23andMe founder: "Good health care comes to those who complain"

Anne Wojcicki is the kind of friend you want in your corner. She twitter-shamed Stanford into waiving a huge deposit from a critically ill, uninsured friend, and twitter-shamed the timely transfer of his medical records. She called 911 to get care for a grandmother in hospice. Says she learned it fr...

Re: Easing into meditation...

Dan Harris' book "10% Happier: Meditation for Figedty Skeptics" is the best meditation primer I've found. Harris had a panic attack while reading the news on national TV and realized he needed to do something. Funny story he tells -- his brother told him the book should be titled "10%...

Re: Keto Travel Food Advice Needed - 2 Week Trip Limited Access

MCT powder is lightweight, tasty (faint coconut flavor) and won't puncture like the capsules or spill like the liquid. I like Quest brand. Canned fish: sardines, salmon, herring, tuna, etc. But you said you would have access to fresh fish, so that's better. Duke's dried sausages are similar to jerky...

FDA loosens rules on AD drug approval

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said that it’s willing to approve Alzheimer’s drugs that show an effect on biological signals of the disease instead of clinical ones, a new path that could lead to treatments years before patients show symptoms like memory loss and dementia.

Re: Nausea - which one or combination is it? help!

I agree with Lucy5: take the curcumin with food -- because it IS food. And it will be better absorbed with black pepper (bioperine is sometimes included with curcumin supplement) -- or just liberally sprinkle your meal with ground black pepper. I see D supplement but no K2? Use either K2-4 or K2-7 o...

Re: "Bulletproof" Coffee

I drink good coffee in the morning with a little full fat cream. Rather than adding MCT oil to my coffee, I prefer to take one tablespoon (0.5 ounces) straight, all by itself. I have added it to my coffee, but it is very oily and seemed to spoil the mouthfeel of the coffee! And a good brand of MCT i...
