An Australian company, Headstrong, with the eminent Dr. Elkhonon Goldberg as founder, has developed a "cognitive gym".  Unlike strictly software programs like Brain Fitness from Posit Science, Headstrong offers an integrated program of:
  • Diet Discover the foods you'll love to eat that also help your brain function.
  • Physical Exercise – Find out which exercises are best for optimizing your brain's growth.
  • RetirementLearn how retirement planning can be beneficial for your brain.
  • Helpful Hints – To improve your everyday brain performance.
  • Strategies & Tips – To enhance your memory, learning and quality of life. 
Posit Science does recognize the benefits of diet and exercise but doesn't offer a complete program.  Headstrong offers coaching as well. 

If you are living in Australia, you can go to a Headstrong clinic.  But, for us folk in the US, we will can access a limited beta trial of his program at www.headstrongbrain.com.  I think I will do this in a little while after I finish doing some auditory therapy.
