The progress that medical science has made in recent years is truly amazing to me. From using 3D medical technology to replace lost limbs and heart valves, to the deeper understanding of brain plasticity (neuroplasticity) and how we can repair brain damage that was previously thought permanent... This is definitely the stuff that sci-fi movies were made of when I was a kid!

While I have been studying neuroplasticity of the brain on my own, I am also taking a course where I'm learning how to use it to change some of the pathways that years of habit have made in my own brain. All I can say is - WOW!

What I am finding is, that in addition to the changes I am working on in the course, other changes (new pathways) are automatically forming for other habits I have wanted to change, but have only thought about so far. “Wow” just isn't a strong enough word! Check out Homer's tracks, or pathways; looks like he may need to change a few of those to remain healthy! 🙂

Through the discovery of neuroplasticity, we now know that we are literally reforming our brains with each passing day. Our brains enjoy the remarkable ability to reorganize pathways, create new connections and, in some cases, even create new neurons throughout our entire lifetime. Isn’t that a kick?!

So, in other words, our brains can change and adapt in response to new experiences. This type of brain plasticity is called Structural Plasticity, and it refers to our amazing brain's ability to actually change its physical structure as a result of learning. This is what the course I am taking is all about and it is just cooler than cool!

Just think about the possibilities this opens up for us Baby Boomers! Many of us watched our parents or other close family members suffer with Alzheimer’s or other dementia, and we sure don’t want to go down that path ourselves!!

Well, we can start right away by making new pathways, or tracks, in our brains, learning new skills, improving on our personal habits, and keep our brains as plastic as possible. There are new courses being developed daily now to help us do exactly that. In fact, I am developing a 30 day course myself based upon what I’ve learned recently, and adding a few tools that have been successful in helping my coaching clients make positive changes, like EFT.

The good news is that I will be offering it free of charge during the planning stages, to a small group of people, in exchange for your feedback and testimonials. I am very excited about this course and the possibilities it brings! When completed, the course will sell for $99.

If you are interested in being part of the test group, please drop me an email (info@HealthyBoomerBody.com) and include your telephone number so that we can chat for a few minutes about the course.

Best of Health,

Kathi
