"Bicycle Your Way to Better Brain Health"

A little over a year ago, I got very interested in how exercise can improve neurogenesis and brain health. This was triggered by the book "Spark" by John Ratey.

Today I found an article from Psychology Today, published last week, entitled "Bicycle Your Way to Better Brain Health."

Here is a quote from the article:

"It turns out that although everyone benefits from a lifestyle that includes regular workouts, it’s the bicyclists who seem to garner the most rewards from their efforts, including the benefits of greater road safety."

Here is a link to the article:  "Bicycle Your Way to Better Brain Health"

  1. What an interesting article. I certainly feel hyper aware when I'm biking in traffic, but I always figured that was just adding stress.

    Of course there's the obvious downside of dramatically increasing your chance of death, but at least when we go we'll have healthier brains than those lazy joggers.

  2. Our muscles become deflated with age, losing their moisture like a dry sponge. Acupuncture restores the natural internal irrigation so the 'sponge' is plumped up again and the wrinkles disappear. Treatments include addressing the facial muscles directly because the electro-stimulation of the natural electric charge in the muscle re-establishes the natural flow and the charge/discharge cycle. This enlivens the tissue. Fluids can move through as they did in youth. Kathleen's PEMF instrument quickens the process of rebuilding skin and muscle tissue, while improving the face's senses: vision, hearing, brain power, and also alleviating depression, as confirmed in numerous studies!
