Cultivation of Wisdom, The Lifelong Learner

In recent years researchers have looked at positive, healthy aspects of the aging mind instead of just looking at pathology or what makes us sick in the mind. The cultivation of wisdom turns out to be a key to brains aging in a healthy manner. The old adage “use it or lose it” becomes a central maxim. 

  People are living longer than ever before.  This can be a mixed blessing.  Many uncomfortable changes occur in aging, but change can be good.  One of the most positive changes is in (what scientists call) crystalline and fluid intelligence … or what is commonly called wisdom.

Now on the precipice of the 5th annual show, the festival has doubled in size and is ready to emerge as the next great event in Denver. Look out Cherry Creek, Park Hill has arrived! “Having lived in Park Hill for 12 years, I experienced first hand what an amazing neighborhood Park Hill is. It was only natural that it should have its own signature event.” – Darren Skanson, owner of CCM Events.

Diet, Aging, and Disease

Scientists have known for a long time that the food that we eat, the calories we burn and the nutrition we get play a crucial role in the relationship between diet, aging, and disease. The relationship between diet and aging is one of the oldest lines of gerontology research. The ancient Taoist alchemists in China have been touting that relationship for the last 5000 years in their quest for immortality. The first western gerontologist to notice the relationship between calories and lifespan was a gerontologist by the name of Aristotle. (more…)

Allergies and the Winds of Spring

Tips from the “Yellow Emperor’s Medicine Cabinet” Allergies and the Winds of Spring

“The three months of Spring are the season for renewal. 
With everything flourishing, the world is full of life.
To accord with the season, go to bed a little later, and get up a little earlier.
 Be patient and let things grow. Go for a stroll in the courtyard, loosen your hair, relax your body and freshen your mind.
 Enjoy the season and do not do anything harmful to your health. This is the way to cultivate the Qi of Life in Spring.

The Yellow Emperor’s Classic on Internal Medicine

Springtime is the season of change, growth and unfortunately allergies.
