I was unsure for example how in each specific area, which were the most important to focus on and it in each area how much it had been proven to work, for example in the case of churchmen, which is expensive to buy and it was quite overwhelming overall.
As someone who is not "doing it all", because of the limitations of resources of time, money and access, I find that doing what I can is empowering. (Example, in terms of access: I spent 1/2 a day trying to locate Labcorps in my nearest city with the intention of getting information about pricing and possibly doing some of the lower cost screenings related to toxicity. All addresses, including on Labcorps website were wrong, and phone number was to their national headquarters and endless audio-looping. Turned out that they have moved and are now a two hour drive away.)
Fortunately, some of the most powerful interventions, which I think are good for overall health are free. Reducing carbs, eliminating grains and sugar, getting more exercise and intermittent fasting are all things that individuals can do on their own. I heard many expert speakers at a conference on brain health saying they believe that exercise is the number one thing most people can do to protect and improve cognition. I am focusing on the benefits that these interventions can provide. "Doing some" seems a much better option than "doing none", even if i can't "do it all"!
That said, I am shutting off the computer and going out for a long walk.
