Brain Function, Memory
& Mental Vigor

As we are compelled to adapt continually to new technologies, changing lifestyles, changes in the environment, not to mention information overload, and as more seniors are postponing retirement, many are seeking creative ways to optimize and preserve optimal brain function and general vitality.

Conventional medicine recognizes the importance of the basics: diet, exercise, avoidance of cigarettes and drugs which compromise circulation, to name a few. However, in the modern world, preventive and therapeutic strategies for maintaining and even improving cognitive function, emotional health and physical well-begin are in great demand.

The research evidence is mounting in support of the notion that we are much larger than the body we inhabit and that the mind and emotions reach beyond the brain. From Proverbs, “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine.” From Carolyn Myss, “Your biography becomes your biology.” Dr Cooke brings a sound knowledge of physiology and nutrition as well as a rich background in mind-body techniques, hypnosis and medical acupuncture to the mix. She wants you to enjoy the same growth, vitality and joy which she seeks on her journey.
