Winning the Battle Against Memory Loss

“Where did I leave my keys?”

“Have you seen my cell phone?”

“I’ll always remember…..what’s his name??”

We have all said these things. But what if we could take steps to improve our memory.  That is the subject of BE SHARP, a 90-minute health and wellness program at the Shames JCC on the Hudson on Monday, December 18th from 12:30-2:00. All are welcome at this free program.

The interactive event features experts from Sharp Again Naturally, a non-profit that was formed to educate the public and the medical community about causes of memory loss that are often preventable and reversible. They have identified 10 primary causes that can be reversed holistically and through better testing and treatment. Three of which – nutrition, physical inactivity and stress – will be the focus of the discussion.

“If you are among the ‘worried well’ know that there is much you can do to keep your body and brain healthy regardless of whether you have a family history of dementia,” said Lisa Feiner, SAN’s co-founder and chairperson.

BE SHARP is the second in a series of free wellness programs sponsored by the Shames JCC as part of their overall commitment to physical and mental good health. Future topics include meditation and mindfulness to relieve stress and worry, and yoga, a complete connection between mind and body.
