This bears repeating....again and again...please read! Please share! It is NOT cholesterol that causes heart disease! It is inflammation!! Our brain is made up of 60% cholesterol. We need healthy cholesterol to function. Low cholesterol can also lead to depression. Watch your numbers on your blood tests so you can make healthy daily choices.

I recently became a Certified Brain Health Coach by the Amen Clinic. The clinic, and I, specialize in brain health issues including learning issues, anxiety, depression, sleep issues, OCD as well as prevention of Alzheimers and other forms of dementia. I was shocked to learn that more than 2 glasses of alcohol per week, over time, was causing damage. To see brain scan after brain scan of those that thought they were drinking in moderation (one alcoholic drink per day), and... to the see the results of brain shrinkage and less blood flow to the area, was another reminder that everything we put into our body either brings us into balance or throws us off of balance. Read the article below by the Amen Clinic.
They also found that the brain (on SPECT scans) shows signs of dementia 10-20plus years before any symptom of dementia show up. Wouldn't you want to prevent dementia if you could? Stopping or decreasing alcohol to a max of 2 glasses per week could help your brain stay healthy longer.…
