The holidays have arrived! Let the festivities begin! 

With an endless supply of tasty temptations practically everywhere you turn, healthy eating can be the ultimate challenge during this time of the year.  Being mindful of your choices can help avoid packing on extra pounds that can take months to lose.  Small, occasional indulgences on a favorite treat may thwart the impulse to overindulge.  Controlling portion size, choosing foods and drinks wisely (i.e. white wine over eggnog) and keeping up with a regular exercise routine are key to preventing excess weight from creeping up during the holidays.  

If, despite your best efforts, you're not pleased with the numbers you are seeing on the scale, don't despair.  January 1st we kick off our TLS Weight Loss System which can help get you back on track and feeling better in just seven weeks.  (See our article below for more info.)

As the year comes to a close, we want to thank you for allowing us to be a part of your wellness plan.   From the entire staff at New Life Wellness Center, we wish you and your family a very joyful holiday season!  

Yours in health,

Dr. Keri Chiappino and D r. W. Brent Reynolds
Diminishing "Senior Moments" with Brain-Wave Training

How often do you lose your keys or glasses? Do you occasionally miss important dates, or forget a name?  As we age, it is not unusual to have periodic slips in memory.

Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is a result of  changes in the structure of the brain, including shrinking of areas associated with memory, and can also be due to other factors such as fatigue. Researchers have found that synaptic connections in the cortical region of the brain diminish with age, producing fewer connections which contribute to slower cognitive processing and "senior moments."

While MCI is relatively common, memory loss associated with neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's Disease (AD) or dementia is not normal. Memory and language issues, confusion, behavioral changes and difficulty with daily living activities are often early warning signs of AD or dementia, and warrant a thorough physical exam by a physician.  Currently there is no cure for AD, but there are interventions that can help.

For those with MCI, neurofeedback brain-wave training can help to strengthen the synaptic connections throughout the brain and promote the production of healthy brain-wave patterns that can help to improve memory and attention .   Acupuncture is another effective, non-drug therapy that has been shown to be effective for pre-dementia memory loss.  Both therapies are available at our wellness center.

Check out Dr. Chiappino's video to learn more about boosting cognition with neurofeedback.  If you or a loved one is struggling with memory issues, contact our office to learn how BrainCore neurofeedback training can help you boost your cognitive abilities.  This month we are offering $50 off a Quantitative Electroencephalogram (QEEG) brain map which shows areas of dysregulation in the brain  that trigger memory issues and provides  a road map for healing.  631.265.1223.

Acupuncture Helps Achieve a Good Night's Rest ... And May Help Thwart Dementia

Achieving quality ZZZs is essential for functioning during the school and workday, but did you also know that  regular, deep dream-stage sleep is critical for brain health?

When we sleep, our brains go through a natural "detoxing" process that rids itself of dangerous beta amyloid plaques, proteins that are a hallmark of Alzheimer's Disease (AD).  Recent research has shown that poor sleep also increases the production of tau, another Alzheimer's-associated protein found in the spinal fluid.  Together the two cause brain tissue to atrophy and die.  Chronic non-restorative sleep issues can increase the risk of developing dementia and AD, not to mention wreak havoc on day-to-day functioning, causing inability to focus, irritability, tension headaches  and impaired ability to perform normal daily activities.

Acupuncture has long been shown to improve the quality and quantity of sleep, helping to refresh the mind and the body naturally.  In fact, studies reveal that acupuncture not only helps improve insomnia, but also benefits overall physical and mental health.   Neurofeedback brain-wave training   is another effective, non-drug therapy for achieving restorative sleep.  Contact our office to learn how both can help you sleep like a baby.   Lori Fortunato, LAc is offering $25 off an initial acupuncture session this month for private pay patients.
