4:31 pm

4:32 pm
that and other post covid brain disorders is dr paul collusion. he's a neurosurgeon from southern california and dr close ian. thank you for joining us on this holiday weekend. thank you so much. and thank you to our veterans. absolutely and we hear about in the case of covid-19 people getting this disease and recovering but some indian up having continued health problems, can you first of all, tell us what is brain fog? and how common is it among people who've had covid-19. sure i've been seeing this quite often nowadays. and brain fog is really a constellation of neurological changes that patients who had covid are going through. and this would include cognitive slowing trouble finding the right words even trouble with motor activities like walking and running appropriately and ah, lot of people think this is really due to these covid particles entering the brain and causing these subtle neurological changes that we're
4:33 pm
seeing in patients. and what else are you learning about the impact of covid-19? i know we're just a year into this pandemic pandemic. but what is the science? one of the studies showing about the impact on the brain and the body? significant findings that like i said, these covid particles are able to enter the brain structure and alter these aspects to the brain. we're seeing what we're now calling post covid stress disorder kind of like a post traumatic stress disorder. but now it's post covid stress disorder. just imagine. patients having coben what they're going through being isolated from everyone imagine caring for a family member at home. who s covid and actually imagine. not being able to see family members who are dying in the hospital. how traumatic that could be for some of us, it's just crazy to see that and i've had the privilege of talking to a lot of my patients about some of these struggles
4:34 pm
and these linger on and on and on because it's such a such a strong impact on your mind. your body your soul. and you mentioned this sort of ah, post traumatic stress disorder. ptsd as a result of covid. we've certainly heard and i've known personally, these families that have had to, um, call that's the only way that they can reach out and connect with people who were in the hospital. what are some things? what advice do you have for people who are going through this very difficult time to help them get through it. yeah, they need support. we need to help our fellow men and women get through this time we're going to get through it. and what i always tell them is stay strong. get appropriate sleep. get about six hours of uninterrupted sleep tonight. that's crucial. that sleep allows your body to heal, feeding a balanced meal. regular exercise. believe it or not, a lot of studies have shown regular exercise helps.
4:35 pm
heal. the body helps that heart pumps stronger toe all aspects of our body, which which will, fortunately allow our our brain and our body t o #### during this very difficult time, i would say also cognitive stimulation. i'm a writer. i like poetry. i think that's helped me de stress, and i think that would be very crucial for people who have been in social social isolation from covid. and finally dr for somebody who may have had covid-19 and are maybe feeling like they are fatigued. feeling that they might have this brain fog? what do you advise for them? what should they do? once again, i think regular exercise is critical. i think getting the appropriate amount of sleep and also just cognitive stimulation. and like i said, i think, um, getting back into the groove of being social were social creatures. we need to interact with other human beings, even pets, even having
4:36 pm
a pet and spending time with your pet. all that is just so valuable. but especially writing and communicating. i think it is invaluable in helping us #### through this very difficult time, and we will survive this. and is that something where they should be going back and checking with their primary care doctor or with other specialists? absolutely i would stay in very close contact with your primary care, doctor. your primary doctor will then refer you either to a neurologist or a neurosurgeon like myself. who can then give you the more specialized bits of advice that you may or may not need all rights doctor callisto and thank you so much for joining us today. thank you. coming up explaining culture through reading and food up next to look at a list of books that are celebrating a t i heritage. it's a hot one or inland cities in the upper nineties to low

batteries and first aid kit are a good start to learn more, visit pacific islander heritage month. we're looking at ways to share some cultural traditions with younger children reading partners, a nonprofit focusing on early literacy has created a list of children's books celebrating different traditions and foods. joining us now is clarence say, with reading partners who curated this list. clearance. thanks so much for joining us. i'm really excited to talk to you about this. yeah, i'm very excited to you. thanks for having me. so first of all i want to ask you. why did you decide to do this? a p i reading project. sure. so as you may know, the month of may is asian, american pacific islander and native hawaiian or a p i n h heritage month, so we
4:40 pm
created this children's book list in collaboration with panda express and the panda cub club. basically the highlight stories from this very diverse community, which you know is full of distinct cultures, traditions and histories that we would just really love to share and talk about with you all today. and what were the criteria that you used? how are you able to go about and one find these books and then to kind of parrot down into this list? of course. yeah i mean, definitely right now, in the shadow of the recent rise in eight anti asian hate crimes in the united states, we strongly do believe that it is very important now more than ever to share. always about the a p a and h experience because you know these stories, although they're very unique were also there, you know, you know bertha, right? so they talk about things that are important in terms of culture, right things like food, family history and language. no to our shared identity as americans. so i'm kind of curating this book less we want to look for books that were not only about the asian american experience but also books that were written by asian american
4:41 pm
authors. and that kind of had this theme right specifically that we kind of looking forward was food. the theme of food throughout this entire list of books help he chose. and having a son. i know that food is very. very young. let's talk about some of the books. one of them is cora cooks talk a little bit about the books and what it was that really engaged you as you were choosing each of them. sure so i'm really kind of going back to what i said earlier. i'm talking about, like the theme of food in these books, so in many asian languages, right? have you eaten yet is a very common greeting. so food really is the common thread that runs through this entire book list. so we have stories like you said about cork. expensive which is about the filipino dispensed it. we have books about dim sum. we have books about keeping bob perotti dumpling soup as well as instant ramen and really in terms of thinking about this book and kind of talking about these books. we want to think about these common themes,
4:42 pm
