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)

Dieting Without Sacrificing Flavor

Dieting Without Sacrificing Flavor
Many feel that dieting is a type of punishment that they must bear because they do not have a perfect body. For some reason they think that enjoying food is not good for them, but that is totally incorrect. The truth of the matter is that dieting does not mean that you must abandon food or flavor; rather you must discover new foods and flavors. At least, that's the way it is for adventure lovers who also really love food.

A number of spices are available that can enhance the taste of even the blandest foods. Since fish and chicken are lean, they are a popular choice for those eating healthy. But rather than adding lots of calories by marinating or soaking these in butter prior to cooking, adding a bit of blackening seasoning is a wonderful way to add some zing to the meal. However, you do not have to draw the line there. Adding a bit of Italian spice to your food is a great way to increase the flavor while limiting he calories.

For this particular case, many seasonings are available that will work. When adding chicken to a salad or wrap for a healthier lunch, add the same seasoning to the chicken you would if you were having it for dinner. When your focus is on whole grains, then grains are a healthy part of your diet. Fiber is nearly as necessary as water, and these are one of the main sources of dietary fiber. Your enjoyment of food can be considerably increased by utilizing simple things to spice up your regular lunch.

It is possible to partake of a decadent delight once in awhile provided you do not go overboard. It is essential to use correct portion sizes and moderation when dieting. There are thousands of treats available that are not too high in sugar or carbohydrates, which you may indulge in on occasion, provided it is not to excess. It is even possible to find low calorie or sugar free candy, but since it is easy to eat too much candy without giving it a second thought and those calories add up fast, you should be conscious of everything that you put in your mouth.

However, the point is that flavor need not be sacrificed when one goes on a diet. It is possible to survive without consuming butter, since so many excellent alternatives are available. However, you can add a lot of flavor with little effort by simply adding seasonings. Desserts are also wonderful and there are a lot of dips and sauces available that contain no fat or low fat mayonnaise or sour cream so you can consume fewer calories while you are dieting.

When eaten along with vegetables, these dips and sauces frequently can take the place of our favorite potato chips and dips that we tend to miss when we are dieting. Crunchy veggies like cucumbers, peppers of any color, broccoli and carrots go well with low fat dips to help satisfy cravings for chips that often surface when dieting.

If you carefully monitor your caloric intake at mealtimes, you will be glad to hear that a number of snack treats are available in 100 calorie packages that you can enjoy. This means that you won't be giving up all your dieting efforts when you occasionally indulge in your favorite treats. Not since the invention of diet colas has there been such a successful marketing ploy as these snack packs. Everyone wants to enjoy the benefits of losing weight, though if the process were easy, everyone would be thin. However, having these hundred calorie snacks or something similar to help you ward off your worst cravings can help you stay true to your diet and meet your weight loss goals. It makes the new way of dieting much more flavorful than the older way of dieting.
