Binyamin Rothstein is a Master Osteopath who has practiced in Jerusalem and Ramat Bet Shemesh, Israel, since 2012, and before that in Baltimore, where he opened a solo practice in 1986.
In addition to his practice, part of his work involved speaking publicly about health issues, often to government retirees. “I’d give a two to four-hour presentation about nutrition, and basic health care,” he recalls. “You know, a funny thing: all these retirees said, ‘Where were you thirty years ago? We should have had this before we got old! Now it’s too late!’ Dr. Rothstein stresses that it is never too late to improve your health.
What he says he cannot stress enough is for people to get plenty of regular exercise, to eat properly, and to keep the mind stimulated. You also need to get plenty of quality sleep, and manage the stress in your life.
“People do better when they’re prepared for retirement,” Dr. Rothstein says. ” When we slow down mental stimulation, our brains tend to slow down and start forgetting things.” But by taking preventative steps early in life, the chances of maintaining healthy brain and body function into old age are greatly improved.
Binyamin Rothstein became interested in the discipline of osteopathy as a college undergraduate. He studied at the Des Moines University College of Osteopathy Medicine, and received his post-graduate education at Hillcrest General Hospital in Flushing, New York, and Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
