The Mediterranean Diet has been associated with lowering the risk of Alzheimer’s, Dementia and other cardiovascular conditions. Research even shows that the diet may reduce the risk of developing heart disease and decrease the risk of stroke for women.
Dr. Krizia Ferrini – Clinical Nutrition Specialist cereneo – points out:
‘’The Mediterranean diet typically means one that is rich in fruit and vegetables, oily fish, such as sardines, and wholegrain cereals, with modest amounts of meat and low-fat dairy. One of the better-known aspects is the use of monounsaturated fats such as extra virgin olive oil instead of saturated fats such as butter. A perfect plate reflecting the Mediterranean diet is nutritionally balanced, diverse, and full of color, flavor, and texture. At #cereneo, every patient is receiving a Mediterranean Menu offer daily.’’

Happy Ramadan Kareem!
Integrating exercise in your daily routine increases muscle strength and flexibility but also helps to battle known stroke risk factors: it lowers high blood pressure, fights obesity and diabetes. As a true sports lover, Lisa Herndlhofer, Occupational Therapist cereneo, knows quite well how to seek relief from an intense day. Her love for sports helps to unwind from a day in a #neurorehabilitation center as #cereneo.
''After work, I like to go outside and be active, usually immediately, when I put on my rollerblades and skate home for example. This gives me the opportunity to combine sports activities within my everyday routine and really helps me to unwind and release stress on a daily basis, feeling always more relaxed and energetic after.
And in the weekends? I love to go running or climb the wonderful mountains that Switzerland has to offer. Climbing up to the peak of the mountain to enjoy the wonderful Swiss scenery, that really frees my mind and calms me down.''

''I suffered a #stroke in 2009. I was lying alone in my flat for ten hours. I couldn't talk or move.
When I arrived at Lake Lucerne I got my confirmation, I was able to get back part of the two things that are most important to me: freedom and independence.''

Being hydrated will support someone's physical performance during intense exercise or high heat; it is not uncommon for athletes to lose up to 6-10% of their water weight via sweat!
Dehydration can have a noticeable effect if you lose as little as 2% of your body's water content. Optimal hydration has been shown to prevent this from happening, and may even reduce the oxidative stress that occurs during high-intensity exercise. This is not surprising when you consider that muscle exist out of approximately 80% water!

To apply the latest scientific and research findings in our #treatment #programme, cereneo cooperates closely with internationally renowned medical research institutes. That is why we have initiated The Journal Club.
The Journal Club exists of a group of dedicated cereneo staff members, professionals with a scientific background in #clinical #neurorehabilitation who discuss the latest developments in #neuroscience and #stroke #recovery research, in order to implement these findings and stay up to date.
As a research clinic, we are always on the search for the latest methods, results and technologies in researching #brain recovery and new #therapy approaches.

A healthy person swallows on average approximately 700 times a day, using 26 muscles per event but this might change after having a #stroke. Often, stroke patients experience #Dysphagia. Dysphagic symptoms can be #coughing after eating or drinking, #choking or #pneumonia for example.
Today, on Swallowing Awareness Day, we pay extra attention to #swallowing disorders #swallowaware2019. With the help of Ilka Alexandra Dähn, Head of Speech and Language Therapy, we have gathered some relevant information about the physical workings, implications and effects that swallowing disorders can have on #neurorehabilitation patients.

We are so happy to introduce you to the new August Medical cereneo website! It is:
• available in both English and Arabic.
• with intuitive user-navigation and improved functionality.
• & easy access to relevant info on neurorehab and patient support.
Do you like it as much as we do? Check it out on www.augustmedicalcereneo.com and let us know what you think!
What happens when you experience a stroke and what can you expect in the upcoming weeks, months or even years after it happened? Depending on the location and severity of the stroke, it can be overwhelming for both the patient and his or her family.
Patients require an individual treatment plan or therapy approach to address the neurological deficits in the best way possible. Stroke is often a damaging event, but, there is hope: A patient’s speaking ability, mental clarity and physical movement can improve over time, even months after the event.
Want to learn more about the stroke recovery timeline and the relearning of lost skills? Read about it in our monthly blog here:
While a #stroke is most common among people over 60 years, it can also occur at a much younger age.
We provide treatment for patients that are over the age of 13 for not only stroke, but also for traumatic brain injuries, #Parkinsons, #MS or Multiple Sclerosis, #ALS, peripheral nerve injury and other neurological related diseases. Children and adolescents must be accompanied by a legal guardian.
