Anti-Memory Loss Prevention For Our Kids’ Future

Many patients in their early 50’s and with memory problems tell me that they have suffered some type of head trauma while playing sports as kids. There is a higher probability that you will suffer memory problems if you have had head trauma from playing youth sports, especially, in high school/college football and cheering. The statistics on head trauma among youth sports is staggering.

However, I like to be more optimistic to think that we are doing a better job in informing parents about concussions, as well as, developing better sport equipments to protect our kids from suffering head traumas.

Youth football and cheerleading season is around the corner. Please, please, continue to monitor your kids that they use proper sport gear and, especially with cheerleading, that all possible precautions are taken to protect our kids from injuries.  By taking these steps, we parents, are helping prevent our kids from having memory problems as adults.

Opiate Induced Constipation, Epitome Example of Medical Practice In America

The opioid crisis in America should focus on both intervention and prevention therapies. Not only do we need better treatments to help those suffering from opioid abuse, but we also need better medical and psycho-educational programs to prevent patients from getting addicted to those addictive medications.

Constipation is a side-effect of opioid usage. Some drug companies advertise heavily on drugs that supposed to treat constipation. This is the epitome of putting too much attention in alleviating side-effects of prescribed drugs. Equal attention should also be given in developing better preventive programs to avoid getting addicted to those drugs. Those who abuse opiates, for example, tend to have comorbidity with other psychological disorders. Chronic depression and anxiety are such comorbidity that need to be incorporated  into preventive programs, more overtly.

False Hope Prevents Families from Seeking help for Alzheimer’s

Throughout my twelve years of doing Alzheimer’s research, I always thought that doing research on those individuals  who are not diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and are starting to have memory problems would be the ideal population to study in order to find effective ways to prevent and cure Alzheimer’s. It seems that is what Alzheimer’s researchers is doing now.

At this time, There is no treatment to cure or prevent someone from developing Alzheimer’s Disease. Bob DeMarco writes. “When Alzheimer’s strikes the first thing that happens is we enter a period of what could best be described as ‘deep sadness.'” When we discover that pills or apps/games that supposed to improve memory, propagandize by non-pharmaceutical companies, that is, companies that do not follow FDA guidelines, do not work, our “deep sadness” turns into despair, a complete loss of hope. That false hope prevents families from seeking real help.

We do have medications that help manage those who suffer from Alzheimer’s, as well as, social services for these patients and their families. Helping families cope with Alzheimer’s is a positive way that offers real information about this disease and helps caregivers learn more on how to manage the patient at home.

Alzheimer’s Researchers are seeking people in their early 50s and up with slight memory problems and NO diagnose of Alzheimer’s. These courageous individuals will help Alzheimer’s researchers find better medications that could prevent or slow down memory problems. Then, hopefully, opening the doors, for someday ,discovering the cure for Alzheimer’s, once and for all.
