I had a guy tell me one time that I was just getting old when I had begun to present with symptoms of post concussion syndrome.
No, you ASS, I had cracked my coconut sixteen times. Now, twenty one.
My sports chiro quintupled my exercise routine. The guy in question told me to nap more often. Suffice it to say, I canned the idiot’s advice and quintupled my exercise routine. Since then, among many other things, I summited Mt. Kenya, and have done plenty more epic adventures all over the world.
I am always and forever stunned by the ignorance of the medical community. That, and the sexism and ageism I encounter as a 67-yo athlete.
Proper food-good, natural sources, kindly- and regular diet are key. While I agree about the B deficiency, most of us are deficient on far too many others as well. A broad range of healthy foods, chosen for our age, activity level and our idiosyncratic bodies is a good program for life.
