  1. Hi Kathy,
    Great list and great points – each of which can make an enormous difference to brain health. Having seen two older relatives succumb to dementia and Alzheimer’s largely because of their lifestyle habits, I would add a couple of things to your list:
    – avoid chemical toxins especially in laundry, cleaning and personal care products
    – rebalance your gut flora with probiotics, cultured foods and kombucha. The gut has a huge impact on the brain.

    Interesting story in your email – thanks for sharing it.
