Stop shaking in Parkinson’s with relaxation and stretching

As I coached my client with Parkinson, she relaxes each time I tell her to relax, deep breath and I help her move with ease. Tense muscles make it harder for her to move, stop tremors and relax. Deep breathing and exercises helped her relax. I teached her that her muscles will relax if she relax and do deep breathing. As I help her move her feet on the bed, I add stretching exercises and I press on her joints to help her. I also add leg and foot massage to help her go to sleep.

I treat my clients like my mother, a former caregiver of 18 years in the bay area who died of liver cancer.

About cancer, what can you do about it?

Cancer cells are abnormal and takes over your normal cell functions and will deplete your body with important nutrients. Sounds like parasites, molds, fungus and other microbes inhabiting us and all of a sudden becomes our enemies devouring our good cells. When death occurs, they come out as black matter from liquid running out our nose or our fecal matter mixed with blood and debri of cancer cells, black.

Before cancer can multiply, there are signs that you can notice many years before from chronic lack of sleep, chronic pain, chronic fatigue, chronic bloating or metabolic disorders, chronic cough and loss of appetite or loss of weight.

What can you do about it, stay away from cancer causing fumes, molds, fungus, toxic metals, toxic foods, cancer causing or hormone disrupting chemicals from hormones fed in cows, plastics, and other carcinogens from burned BBQ meat and others you can easily notice since they are not whole foods but processed and they can make you ill, nauseous and gives you tummy or head ache.

So what else can we do about cancer, you can slowly detox your body from these toxins with sleep, clean air and water, whole foods, exercise, sunshine and avoidance of these toxins.

Hospice seniors in the bay area are increasing in numbers as cancer become the main causes of their illness. As caregivers from Motherhealth, we provide family-centered care and personalize that we treat each one like family, ensuring comfort from massage, home made foods (with thickening agent) and whole foods.

Anxiety issues as we get older

As I am taking care of a 90 yr old with Dementia, I noticed anxiety issues at night. I calmed her with whole foods, massage, hugs, safe environment and consistent in home senior care. I ensured that the room temperature is just right, changed her diapers on time and fed her whole foods on time. I give her melatonin and whole foods of soups with complete protein, fats and carbs (rich in magnesium and calcium). I warm her body with massage oil of coconut oil and ginger. She is one of the few seniors who do not take anti-anxiety medications. I give her free space as she is at times combative, an early Dementia state.  Wish her podiatrist comes soon as she has long nails. In the morn as my shift ends, I kiss her forehead and say I love you and see you next week and she answers, “maybe”.

Keeping Your Mind And Body Healthy As You Get Older

By Marie Villeza

You’ve done it. You have spent decades working hard, building a life for you and your family, and earning your way in the world. Now it’s time to retire and relax in your golden years.

Relax? Who has time for that?

These days, retirement is much more than going to some community in Florida. You’re active, busy, and doing all kinds of things. While you enjoy this life, you need to pay attention to the health needs of your mind and body. You’re going to face some unique challenges as a senior, so here are some tips to help you stay fit.

Pay Attention To What You Eat

When you were young, you could eat all the fast food, carbs, and fats you wanted, and your body could handle it. But that was when your body ran much more efficiently. These days, your metabolism has changed — and all that fast food is beginning to catch up to you.

That’s why you need to make nutrition a priority in your senior life. While there’s nothing wrong with enjoying some ice cream or french fries on occasion, you have to eat better on a regular basis. Take a multivitamin designed especially for seniors each day. If you need it, take extra calcium and vitamin D to keep your aging bones strong.

You also need to worry about weight loss. Many seniors start to lose too much weight. To combat this but in a healthy way, make sure you are eating a balanced diet with plenty of protein.

Two Senior Problems: Pain & Memory

Everyone can have problems with eating healthy, but there are two problems that are particular to growing older: pain and memory.

Older adults face pain-generating medical conditions like arthritis, diabetes, and hypertension more than other age groups. That’s just a fact of getting old. But there are things you can do to lessen or avoid chronic pain. Stay active, and get plenty of exercise that improves your flexibility. You can also use art therapy to reduce stiffness and inflammation in the fingers, hands, and arms.

In fact, art therapy can even help with memory loss. Your body isn’t the only thing that needs exercise to stay fit. You need to keep your mind active as well. Art activities like painting, drawing, and sculpting help keep your mind sharp. Music, puzzles, and even games can do that as well. As you train your brain to keep active, your memory and cognitive skills can stay strong.

Keeping Happy

But your mind is more than a tool to use. It regulates your thoughts and mood. And when you start getting older, your happiness can be a problem.

Depression is not a normal part of the aging process, yet many seniors have problems with it, and unhealthy habits to cope. That’s because they’re facing many losses: mobility, flexibility, purpose, even friends and family. But that doesn’t mean you can’t fight it.

One key is to maintain your friendships and social activities. Sure, those activity groups online or at retirement centers might sound a bit silly, but they help you stay happy. That’s because humans are social creatures; we need to interact with others. Instead of sitting around most of the day, take some classes at a local college or park district. Go online and join groups. Even finding a hobby you can share with others is worthwhile.

Entering into retirement is a big transition. And for many, that much change can be overwhelming. That’s why you need to take a few extra steps to maintain your mind and body’s health. Make sure you’re eating well, getting exercise, and being social to make your golden years truly golden.

 

Aging hacks

Can we avoid so many medications at age 90? Can we still have our memory and be able to dance at 90?  Walking is impaired in most cases of Dementia, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson. We need to take care of our brain , avoiding inflammatory substances.

As I am taking care of many seniors in their 90s, one positive thing that separates each one from being bed ridden and not is an intact brain free from inflammation, stroke, Dementia, Alzheimer and Parkinson. How can we avoid these neuro-degenerative disorders?

Over-medication, stress, absence of whole foods, lack of exercise and adequate sleep and less social and family support network are common among those who are bed-ridden. Many brush off pain and just take OTC medications for pain.

Our body is sending signals due to pain. Get a massage or see a chiropractor. Walk more often and be active members of a social community.

As I massage their aging bodies, I fell that they are dry, cold and do not move often.

Other aging hacks will be discussed in seminars in the bay area libraries by Connie Dello Buono, email motherhealth@gmail.com for more information.
