Sep 29 BNI Presentation
I’d just like to ask Sally to talk to you about her experience using Mastermind.
So, what have you been doing for your brain? Let me ask you this, do find yourself forgetting the names of people you have met and had a conversation with? Or do you walk into a room to get something, but not remember what you came to get? If this is happening more frequently, and you are noticing your memory doesn’t seem to work as well as it used to, do you accept this is normal aging?
Who has upgraded their computer or laptop at home or work in the past 2-3 years? We do this whenever they get too slow for our liking, we may budget it for next year, but we still do it…..what about your brain, when you notice it getting slow? Doctors will tell you that’s normal aging…..research shows it’s not…..don’t accept this as your new normal, recognize that this is a sign of cognitive decline and it’s time to do something about it.
You can have Alzheimers for 20 years, before it is ever diagnosed. … but why let it get to that point, when you can do something about it now?
747,000 Canadians are living with Alzheimer’s disease, a number expected to increase to 1.4 million in the next 15 years. For every person with the disease, two or more family members provide care. Women account for 70 per cent of family caregivers. 72% of those suffering in Canada are women.
Economic cost in Cda was $33 billion in 2011 and is expected to be $293 billion by 2040. Imagine the positive impact, if we could educate enough people today to start looking after their brain and reduce the numbers of diagnosis?
Some known causes of Alzheimers
Too much stress – so many of us live in overwhelm with cortisol levels running through our brain at way higher levels than they should be.
Too many toxins in our environment and food
There are not enough nutrients in our food to keep the brain operating at the energy level we demand of it
Poor blood flow bringing the nutrients and oxygen to the brain
Medical science has our bodies living longer, but we haven’t been looking after our brain, so it can keep up.
Megin’s Dad – Dementia
Our products are not a cure, and I will not even tell you that they will prevent dementia or Alzheimers, but what we know today, is that they will delay the onset….imagine if that onset could be delayed from age 65 to age 85? 20 more years of quality of life for you and your loved ones.
Think about it…without your health you have a lower quality of life, without your brain, you have no quality of life. Don’t minimalize the importance of your health, while you have it. This is not just for elderly people, this is for everyone of all ages, to think about. Some people are now being diagnosed in their mid-40s!
And finally a quote from the Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity: “Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money in order to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about his future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future, he lives as if he’s never going to die, then he dies, having never really lived”.
