Could there be a correlation between brain function and lifestyle and food? Could it be that we can change something we’ve always done, and make a difference in our lives, health, even our out look?
More and more we see the outcome of change. One Change – Can Change Everything™.
The most important decision we make each day is the choices of foods we eat, making the right choice is the beginning of all good things in our lives. These choices will feed the 100 billion neurons in the brain, and facilitate the 70, 000 thoughts we produce each day.
Then we can make other choices that ensure our overall physical and mental health.
So, here is your guide:
Eat wild-caught Fatty fish (salmon, tuna, mackerel, herring, trout, sardines)and the healthy fats in coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, avocados, and Nuts (almonds, peanuts, macadamia nuts, hazelnuts, pecans, cashews) are the choices I make. Good proteins from cage free, hormone free chickens and eggs. Realize that animal proteins are not the best for us, and that we get more that enough good proteins from eating a wide array of fresh vegetables. Eliminate sugar and white flour. This action alone can recharge your brain in only 5 to 8 days. Sugar and processed, bleached flour and all the products made from it turns to sugar in the blood, and causes the blood sugar levels to rise and fall sharply, creating serious brain dysfunction. Often too much sugar also causes dwindling mental capabilities, including cognitive problems, lapses in memory, the inability to process information, as well as difficulty recognizing spatial patterns, and can even lead to dementia and a higher incidence of Alzheimer’s disease.
Eating healthy carbs for the wonderful Phyto-nutrients which are anti-inflammatory and helps blood flow to the brain and other parts of the body, easily. Enjoy more almonds, dark chocolate, avocados, beans, asparagus, yams, garlic, figs, chili peppers, celery, and bananas. Again, an array of seasonal fresh fruits and veggies will always do the body good!
Supplements are important because we simply cannot get all the nutrients we need from the foods we eat. Adding a good fish oil, vitamin D, the B-complex, probiotics, and a good Multi vitamin-multi mineral product to your daily routine is imperative.
Relaxation with mediation, fun, rest and massage are easy ways to relieve stress which is one of the main causes of diseases of the mind and body. Stress management plays a major roll in healing.
Adding fun social events with friends, such as dinners, movies, dancing, games, sports, and crafting get-togethers are easy ways to connect as social beings.
Word games, learning something new, and exercise are great ways to eliminate depression, while helping to grow new brain cells. Our body’s cells are being renewed every second on everyday. What these new cells grow from and grow into is solely up to us, by the choices we make daybyday. Detox from electro pollution such as electric devices at the bedside, cell phones, micro waves and other common house hold devices.
