Broadcasts of AAC Meetings

Sometimes our meetings are recorded by Bloomington's Community Access Television. It usually takes about two weeks to edit and post these broadcasts on their Library Channel. If a presentation has been recorded, it will be noted at the bottom of the presentation summary. Please check their schedule for days and times of broadcasts.

How to Reverse Aging

Dr. Roy, a cardiologist from Monroe Hospital  As we age our vessels get clogged, our inflammation increases and our organ function slows down.  High cholesterol increases inflammation and plaque, which in turn, can cause blockages and possiblhear attacks or strokes.  High cholesterol makes a person sluggish and can affect skin, eyes and energy level.

Stem cells do minor repair, but they diminish with age.  Hormonal replacement and other replacement therapies often cause other problems.

You can improve at any age by controlling diet/exerise/sugars/salt/fatty foods and keeping cholesterol low, even if you don't do it every day! When you eat better, you sleep better!! 

It's very important to create good regimens for children and to lead by example in order to instill healthy habits!  Try to eat fresh foods as much as poissible!!  Basically good health is a combination of the whole!!  The best diet is vegetarian, but deficiencies, such as B6, B12, fish oil and flaxseed have to be addressed.

Some health variables, such as hereditary, are important, but you should not worry about things that cannot be changed!  Other things can be done to counter hereditary.

Dr. Roy gave a very interesting, complete and informative presentation!!!!

Thank you to everyone that attended!  We had 56 attendees this month!  See you March 15!
