President’s Message: #1 Thing You Can Do For Your Health Right Now

I was just reading a medical report that revealed that this is the most stressful time in human history. So I started thinking about other times.

I have no idea what it was like 2,000 years ago or before that but it wasn’t that easy. Then let’s flash to more “recent” times so to speak. The Civil War. Pretty stressful.

The last century had a lot of stress: WWI, Spanish Flu, The Great Depression, WWII, The Atomic Bomb, the 60’s with all the assassinations, and Vietnam. That’s enough right there to stress you out.

But at least we had The Beatles back then, right?

Now let’s look at this century: 9/11, various financial calamities, Covid, totally crazy politics, and another war. But the main difference today, in my view and in the opinion of many leading experts, is the constant barrage of 24/7 news! It’s dreadfully awful.

And according to Karen Koffler, M.D., Director of The integrative Medicine Program at The University of Miami Medical School, it’s designed with one thing in mind: to arouse your sympathetic nervous system and get you wound up with your blood pressure sky-rocketing.
Plus as you may know, stress-related diseases are also zooming. I’m talking about immune dysfunction, heart disease, blood cancers such as leukemia, other cancers, Arthritis, Ulcerative Colitis, and the dreaded Alzheimer’s.

So what can you do to protect yourself? Especially women who are at an increased risk? Well that’s what the aforementioned, esteemed Professor Dr. Koffler will be sharing at the ARPF’s 30th Anniversary Conference in Scottsdale on September 30 – October 1.

Dr. Koffler will be our keynote speaker starting us off on Saturday morning with her discussion called Getting Stronger And Sharper With Age: What Really Matters. It’s not all academic stuff either. She’ll also sit down after her talk and have a little audience chat where she’ll answer your questions.

And that’s not all. Dr. Koffler will be followed by other tremendous speakers who will share their expertise and wisdom with you; too many to mention right now but you can most assuredly discover them right here where you can register for this brand new groundbreaking conference.

If you have any desire to live a long life with a clear mind, you owe it to yourself to be in Scottsdale on September 30 – October 1.

Yours in Brain Health,
Dharma Singh Khalsa, M.D.
