Hi, it’s Dr. Sklar with another important topic on cognition–one known commonly as chemo brain. It’s a condition where, following chemotherapy treatment for cancer, patients find that they have cognitive difficulties. They don’t remember things as well, they have difficulty concentrating, difficulty getting tasks done, and a struggle to learn new things. Not much is […]
Hi. It’s Dr. Sklar with the thought of the week. This week, it’s about cognition, which as you know is one of my favorite topics. I recently was on a menopause summit called Menopause is a Trip. It was a great summit and I spoke about hormones and cognition. At the end of the menopause […]
Little did I know when I sent out my blog last week about taking a hip hop class for fun that there actually is scientific evidence about the value of dance in preventing cognitive decline. There’s an excellent article that was published in The New England Journal of Medicine in 2003 that studied a large […]
This week, I want to talk to you about stress, because stress is one of the biggest factors in why we have brain decline.

I Feel Healthy, Vibrant, and Alive!“The program has made a significant and noticeable difference in my overall health.

It's Like Being Cinderella at 65 and A Fairy Godmother Turned Me Into 30!“It has now been about 6 months since you started me on bio-identical hormones and vitamins based on the specific deficiencies you found in my blood work, and my response is a heart-felt thank you. I've regained about 80% of the energy I had when I was 40 -- which was a lot of energy. I'm working again and I like it! Dishes, housework, ironing, laundry, and cooking are just a breeze but are something I want to do and this comes with the increase of energy. I've lost 8 pounds because I wanted to exercise and watch my dietary intake. It sounds like a story too good to be true, yet it's true. It's like being Cinderella at 65 and having a Fairy Godmother turn you into 30. Thank you for all you have done for me. I am truly ecstatic and so are my husband and children.” --C.C.
