#824: MM – New Year Tip on Improving Your Exercise Routine

Posted on: Fri, Jan 18, 2019, at 7:04 am

This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. This entire week we’re focusing on health tips for the New Year. Today’s tip is all about exercise. You don’t have to join a gym or spend a bunch of money. The key is to just start moving more. Yoga or other low impact exercises can be done at home with a DVD or through videos on your computer or phone. Even just walking around the block every evening will yield great benefits. Even the researchers at University of California – Irvine agree that it doesn’t have to be much. A new study they conducted showed that even 10 minutes of exercise per day can improve your brain function. Look at that – you can improve your physical body as well as your mental capacity through small and easy steps. Really, there’s no excuse. The key to this goal is to be specific. Don’t just say you want to exercise more. Instead, come up with something measureable like walking 10,000 steps per day or doing 30 minutes of yoga three times a week.

#823: MM – New Year Health Tip: Clearing the Clutter

Posted on: Thu, Jan 17, 2019, at 7:04 am

This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. This entire week we’re focusing on health tips for the New Year. Let’s start with clearing out the clutter. Don’t wait for Spring time, start now. Even if you only do a little bit every day, eventually your decluttering will have a significant impact on your mental and physical health. My suggestion is to get three boxes and line them up side by side. Mark them with “Keep” “Throw Away” and “Donate”. This will keep you from running back and forth from place to place. Once you are done filling the boxes, you’re done for the day. Take the “throw away” items to the trash. Drop off the “donate” and put the “keep” items in their rightful place. Repeat each day until you’re done. But don’t be too quick to say out with the old and in with the new. Instead, resist the urge to fill your space back up with more stuff.  This Stay Young Medical Minute is brought to you by Executive Medicine of Texas, your leader in concierge medicine and age management.

A TIME WHEN WE FIND SOMETHING SHOCKING IN THE NEWS OR WE’RE SHOCKED IT MADE THE NEWS. Speaking of stress.  Are you shrinking your brain?  Turns out, high levels of stress can shrink your brain.  That’s because stress causes the body to secrete a hormone called cortisol.  High levels of cortisol have been linked to heart disease, depression, hypertension, and obesity.  It can also lead to decreased grey matter in the brain.  If you are overstressed, get moving.  Even a quick walk around the block can give your mind the clarity it needs to sort through stressors.  It’s also important to sleep and eat well.  Both will give you the physical energy your body needs to fight off rising cortisol levels.  Talk to your doctor if you are worried about your stress levels.  … Continue reading #1047: Show – PTSD from the Holidays?

The Staying Young Show Show Topic: “The Psychology of Good Health with Ronald Smith” Co-Hosts:  Judy Gaman, Mark Anderson Guest: Professor Ronald Smith  Segment 1: An important part of taking ownership of your own health is to stop playing the victim card. (open discussion) How psychology affects your health  DOC SHOCK Suicide rates are on the rise.  The World Health Organization estimates that over 800,000 people commit suicide yearly.  It is also the second leading cause of death in people ages 15 to 29.  New research out of University of Utah suggests that genetics may play a role in suicide risk.  Researchers were able to examine the genetics of 1,300 DNA samples of people who lost their lives to suicide.  Using this information, they were able to localize four genetic variants and 207 genes that influence suicide risk.  This research could pave the way for better treatment options for suicidal thoughts and tendencies.  Talk to your doctor if you or a loved one are battling suicidal thoughts.

#822: MM- Brown Sugar vs Regular White Sugar

Posted on: Tue, Jan 01, 2019, at 6:04 am

This is Judy Gaman, author of the award winning book Age to Perfection: How to Thrive to 100, Happy, Healthy, and Wise and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. Each day I bring you one new tip that will help you stay young and vibrant. I heard a comment over the holidays that really struck me. One of my family members said brown sugar was healthier than regular white sugar. Well, Sugar that’s the color of dirt doesn’t make it more “natural” or healthier than its white counterpart. The color comes from a common residual sticky syrup, called molasses. Brown sugar retains some of that molasses. In fact, brown sugar is mostly white sugar with some molasses — so refining it further would give you white table sugar. While molasses contains some vitamins and minerals like potassium and magnesium, there is not enough in your standard brown sugar packet that should make you reach for it if you’re trying to eat healthier. As far as your body is concerned, white and brown sugar are one-in-the-same.We want to empower you with as much health information as possible.

Did you know There’s no evidence that going outside with wet hair when it’s freezing will make you sick provided you avoid hypothermia. But there is a scientifically sound explanation for why people catch more colds in winter: We spend more time in close quarters indoors, it is more likely that we’ll cross paths with a cold-causing virus spread from another person during the winter. We want to empower you with as much health information as possible.

#819: MM- Juice cleansing after the holiday indulgences – a go or a no?

Posted on: Sat, Dec 29, 2018, at 6:03 am

This is Judy Gaman, author of the award winning book Age to Perfection: How to Thrive to 100, Happy, Healthy, and Wise and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. Each day I bring you one new tip that will help you stay young and vibrant. Will that juice cleanse combat all those holiday indulgences? Well, not really. Your body naturally removes harmful chemicals through the liver, kidneys, and gastrointestinal tract — there’s nothing about juice that will hurry that process along. Juicing mainly just removes digestion-aiding fiber from fruits and vegetables. Also consider that many sugary fruit juices are as bad for you as sodas. While some juices are just fine, they don’t provide anything that you wouldn’t get by eating the whole components instead. We want to empower you with as much health information as possible.

#818: MM- iphone vs Android studies

Posted on: Fri, Dec 28, 2018, at 6:08 am

This is Judy Gaman, author of the award winning book Age to Perfection: How to Thrive to 100, Happy, Healthy, and Wise and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. Each day I bring you one new tip that will help you stay young and vibrant. You know that I am always bringing you newest information and the latest research, but I have to say, I am highly offended by this study. According to Lancaster University, they found a significant difference in iphone users vs android users, stating that Android users are more honest. Seriously? iphone users are apparently younger, twice as likely to be women and more extroverted. Android users tend to be older, male, more honest, and more agreeable. I guess they’re right on the agreeable thing. I have an iphone and I simply think this study is flawed.  More Info! We want to empower you with as much health information as possible.

#817: MM- How Do Men And Women View Facial Expressions?

Posted on: Thu, Dec 27, 2018, at 6:03 am

This is Judy Gaman, author of the award winning book Age to Perfection: How to Thrive to 100, Happy, Healthy, and Wise and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. Each day I bring you one new tip that will help you stay young and vibrant. This is a fascinating study out of Queen Mary in London. We all know men and women see the world differently, but now we know why women tend to clue into facial expressions a little bit more. Have you ever heard a woman say, ” Did you see the way they looked at me?” and then her husband reply, “No. I didn’t see that at all.” Well, maybe they’re both telling the truth. It turns out that women tend to look at people first in the left eye and then explore the entire face, spending much more time taking in the details, while men take much less time to observe before moving on. The study tracked the eye movements of 500 participants of all different nationalities and the distinction was clear, there are gender differences in the way we see the world, or at least the way we see each other!
