Supporting Cognition and Healthy Aging:

See The World – An At Home Learning and Reading Program, created by Dr. Paul Herscu:

While the program is described for the student, the global difficulties found in post stroke and post traumatic brain injuries are often helped by the same exercises. While the student is dealing with the global complaints since birth, the adults described here are learning to contend with cognitive changes or cognitive loss. This program assists in developing the skills that help regain loss in an efficient manner.

Low Dose Lithium to support healthy aging, mood, behavior, and memory, and resist the effects of stress by combining extremely low doses of bioavailable Lithium orotate with low doses of Zinc picolinate, Water hyssop (Bacopa monnieri), and Lemon Balm (Melissa officinale) – designed to take advantage of the hormetic response elicited by these compounds and plants.

At a recent NESH Clinical Class our friend and UMass Professor, Ed Calabrese PhD, presented material on his groundbreaking work in hormesis, or the biphasic dose response curve found in nature. The driving force here is to emphasize an approach to medicine that uses the right intervention, at the right dose, at the right time, for the right duration, for the right patient!
