Optimal Brain Nutrition

When I practiced as a doctor of Naturopathic medicine I found that supplements feeding the brain could reverse many neurological problems. 25 years ago my father had Parkinson's disease and was taking many medications. Through careful research I put together a formulation and asked him to take the supplements. I never had to ask him to take the supplements again, he would tell me, "You know I'm getting mighty low on those vitamins you gave me." My father being of an older generation and from the south this was quite a statement; it proved to me that he felt a difference on the supplements. I saw that he was able to keep strength and mobility quite well while he was on this program. Unfortunately my mother passed away and he married another woman who convinced him that he did not need to take any supplements. His health went down so quickly it was amazing and he died within three years after marrying her.

I am not stating that the supplements cured the Parkinson's disease, but they gave him mental clarity and energy that his body desperately needed. The proof was how quickly he deteriorated once he stopped using supplementation.

The supplements that feed the brain most effectively are, in order, as follows:

Spirulina. This tiny aquatic plant has been eaten by humans since prehistoric times and is grown worldwide as a healthy food. Imagine a vegetable with more protein than soy, more Vitamin A than carrots, more iron than beef, profound source of protective phytochemicals, naturally low in fat, source of the essential fatty acid GLA and is easy to digest. This food goes directly to the brain. It is an absolute must for people with Attention Deficit Disorders, Parkinson's disease, Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis Alzheimer's disease, Autism, and any brain disorders.

Lecithin is an important phospholipid needed by all living cells.

One of many benefits of lecithin is its ability to aid in memory function and learning. Many studies have been conducted where people reported higher retention in learning and ability to recall information with an increase of lecithin. Even patients with Alzheimer's disease reported an improvement in memory and orientation. Lecithin is essential for people with Attention Deficit Disorders, Parkinson's disease, Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis Alzheimer's disease, Autism, and any brain disorders.

Niacin, or vitamin B3, combines with other B vitamins to release energy in the cells, and to regulate circulation, hormones, glucose, and hydrochloric acid in the body. Niacin also works closely with riboflavin (vitamin B2) and pyridoxine (vitamin B6) to promote healthy skin, and keep the nervous and digestive systems running smoothly. This is an important supplement for neurological problems. When combined with a Multivitamin you will not experience a flush.

Multivitamins. Consistent use of multivitamins and other key supplements can promote good health and help prevent disease, according to a comprehensive new report released by the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN). The report found that ongoing use of multivitamins (preferably with minerals) and other single-nutrient supplements (like calcium or folic acid) demonstrated quantifiable positive impact in areas ranging from strengthening the immune system of highly-vulnerable elderly patients, to drastically reducing the risk of neural tube birth defects such as spina bifida.

The brain will readily absorb these nutrients and a person will see a change in how they feel mentally and physically quickly with daily usage of these powerful supplements. Most people experience a change within two weeks of usage.

Natural Supplements have been found to reverse many conditions that were unable to be treated by any other modality; this has been documented by many different health organizations. The quality of the supplement has to do with the effectiveness of treatment. Natural supplements with careful quality control procedures can mean the difference between success and failure.

When it comes to eating-protein food is readily absorbed by the brain. Fish and eggs feed the brain more effectively than most other protein foods. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables for the valuable minerals and vitamins to energize the brain. Minimize carbohydrates such as bread, pastry and pizza.

Start feeding your brain today and have a happier healthy life!

I practiced as a doctor of Naturopathic medicine for over twenty years. I have extensive knowledge on the body and have written several articles on some of the main health issues and questions I have seen over the years. I specialize in the modalities such as: nutrition, supplements, physical medicine (includes soft tissue manipulative therapy, physiotherapy, sports medicine, exercise and hydrotherapy)

Attention – Massive Fasting Weight Lost on Intermittent Fasting Program!

Attention - Massive Fasting Weight Lost on Intermittent Fasting Program!

The combined intermittent fasting weight lost over the centuries far outstrips all other forms of diet combined! Can this be true? You bet it can! Not to mention that the weight lost on a proper fasting diet is just the icing on the cake of the most enjoyable and effective diet on the planet.

Intermittent fasting for weight loss has been around as long a man...and way beyond all other modern formal and complicated diets came into being.

You see, until the 20th century, people practiced intermittent fasting all their lives. Why? Because they had to hunt for their food. Food was not always readily available like it is today. In early times, the hunters would catch their food, everyone would eat well for a while, then the hunters would go out and catch some more. Until they brought home more food they would live off the fat on their bodies (while they fasted) as they waited for more food. Of course they were slimmer and healthier than our overfed overweight society is today.

I believe that our natural biology was not designed to have food consistently; therefore intermittent fasting is a very natural and healthy way to diet.

However, many people believe that fasting is a bad way to try to lose weight. Why is this? Because long-term fasting simply is not a good weight-loss approach...but we are not talking about long-term fasting. We are talking about the fasting weight lost by intermittent short-term fasting.

Long-term fasting is not sustainable over a lifetime, is very hard to endure, and will slow down your metabolism, causing you to gain your weight back (usually plus some) when you start eating again. Short-term intermittent fasting, done properly, has none of these negative characteristics.

Fasting properly will not only keep your metabolism up for efficient fat burning, but it will help your body to cleanse itself of toxins.

What happens is that you fast for a short period, which causes a huge calorie deficit, and then you eat what you enjoy for a period of days.

Doing this will cause you to burn more calories than you take in, thus you will lose weight while enjoying all your favorite foods.

The fasting weight lost on a proper fasting diet is the icing on the cake of the most pleasurable and affective diet on the planet. This system can be enjoyed and sustained for life without becoming bored with it.

Combine intermittent fasting with a good exercise program and you have the perfect, weight loss system. But it must be done correctly, which actually is very simple to do. If done correctly you will have no trouble maintaining your exercise regime.

Once you learn more about intermittent fasting and weight loss, you will be amazed at how easily, inexpensively, and pleasurably they work together.
