Death & Taxes

There are some things in life that are unavoidable.  To those of us living with hepatitis C - whether it's you or someone close to you - another inevitable fact of life is brain frog. 

Hold it - not brain frog - we're talkin' brain fog, space cadet (Sheesh!) -  otherwise referred to in medical circles, as encephalopathy.

But, hey ... it's not so bad.  Believe it or not, there's something you can do about this.  A bunch of science nerds at UCLA published a study earlier this summer that proved that making some simple lifestyle changes will "improve brain and cognitive functioning" ... in english, that's revive some of those burnt-out brain cells you left at the Grateful Dead Concert back in ... (you get the drift).  You motorcycle-riding closet nerds can read about it here.

For the rest of us ... Study participants improved brain functioning in just 14 days by:

  • Doing daily crossword puzzles & brain teasers;

  • Taking a daily walk;

  • Ate five small meals a day: a balanced diet full of antioxidants (garlic, fruits & veggies with the peels left on where possible), low glycemic carbohydrates (like whole grains), and omega-3 fats (lemme get back to ya on this one)

We here at Hep C Straightup wanted to do our part, so we've provided you with a few little ditties that might help ya keep your gears greased.
























Hey ... I'm not a doctor - don't even play one on t.v. - so, check out my little disclaimer ... here.
