Default Memory medicine

I was watching a program today on good herbs/medical uses and one of the Drs. spoke about Rosemary.

He said breathing (the fumes) Oil of Rosemary or even using fresh Rosemary is very good for your memory.

Now I know why I love the smell so much.
And Lord knows I could use some help! LOL

I love it----I have been sniffing the herb pot often since I read that about Rosemary.
I need all the help I can get with my memory---it use to be sharper before.
I dried the other and planted more.

I may see if I can find Rosemary oil and use it in soap.

BWmom---Thats usually whats happens with me and vitamins.

Your brain is like every other muscle in your body: you gotta exercise it to keep it strong!

Now thats funny!!

At my age I know thats very important.
I think reading and fresh air and sunshine are so important as we age.

I have to kick start my eating habits.
Eating alone is an enemy of seniors.

Cooking for one can be difficult and it's easy to get lazy when alone and just fill up on idle calories and your nutrition can suffer. And older folks lose the sensitivity of their taste buds so they can lose interest in food.

It's been shown that people who exercise regularly have less trouble with dementia as they age- but that could be because healthier people are more able to exercise regularly.

Just being aware of these things can help you take steps to avoid the pitfalls.
