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)

How to Body Detox & Uses of Detox Foot Patches

We live in a toxic age. Our water Is laced with heavy metals. The air we breathe is polluted with carbon byproducts. What we eat is chemically enhanced or genetically modified to last longer, taste better, and fill us up with superfluous calories. Even our body's burning of fats, proteins and sugars for energy creates waste. So cleaning out our guts has to be a good idea, right?

Yes and no. Our body can clean up its own mess, The body does not passively soak up toxins like a sponge. It has defences and resources which constantly act even while you sleep. When toxins enter your body, these are swiftly dealt with. But if our body can take care of its own waste, why do we sometimes feel bloated enough to want to stick a plunger down our gut? Pro-detox experts think we can do with some extra help.

Experts thinks that the body is already detoxifying itself all along, but we live in a toxic environment. We suffer from stress, breathe little fresh air, some smoke & drinks, we also ate foods that are grill which produces dangerous carbon. Detoxifying is a means of strengthening our bodies to cope with these stresses. If we ignore stress-proofing your body, and you may face chronic diseases such as insomnia, fatigue, gastric problems, poor skin and premature aging due to the accumulation of toxins over the years.

Contrary to what we think of detoxifying as literally flushing out blockages in our intestines, there are many detox methods available in the market.

Some detox experts propose herbs and vitamins that suitable for detox, some uses detox foot patches; some encourages vegetarian diet or detox fruits diet.

Herbs used in detox diets are actually meant to strengthen the eliminating organs so that they work better. Herbs fortify the organs with nutrients. Detox foot patches derive from natural trees roots are proven to be non-toxic, they have no side effects, unlike chemical drugs. This detox foot patches are sticks under the foot, and overnight it works via drawing toxins away from our body to the patches, detox foot patches also include negative ions which can helps to refresh our body.

Be detox savvy

Detox programmes aren't for everyone. While most detox diets appear safe as they use natural herbs, and advocate a switch to fruits and vegetables, don't let that lull you into complacency. It can be harmful to health if not done properly. For instance, you shouldn't fast if you are anaemic and your body doesn't have sufficient iron. Those whose health is affected by tumours, bleeding ulcers, cancer, blood diseases, active pulmonary diseases, diabetes, gout, liver, kidney and cerebral diseases should not fast or detox. They should consult doctors for advise. For instance, special fasting programmes consisting of only water or juice should be done no longer than 14 days, this should be done with caution. Other detox programmes like using detox foot patches are much safer and can be followed for up to one and a half months.

What to do

Detox programmes vary in intensity and duration. Some let you gradually shift from your usual diet to raw fruits and vegetables, as well as herbs and vitamins prescribed to suit your body's needs. You never actually do juice or water fasting alone. Such fasts deprive your body of essential nutrients and can harm your health. Sometimes, using detox foot patches, massage and dry body brushing are incorporated into the programme to improve blood circulation and lymphatic drainage so that your body can flush the toxins out more efficiently.

A good and effective detox programme should support the elimination organs like the liver, kidneys, colon and the lymphatic system. The most important and simple thing to do during detox is to drink 1.5 to two litres of water a day to flush out toxins and waste products.

Who would benefit from a detox?

Most of us, it seems. Rare is the individual who doesn't keep a hectic lifestyle, indulge in alcohol and/or a diet nigh in fat, sugar, and salt but low in vegetables and fruit. If you're feeling constantly fatigued and stressed, they're already signs that your body can do with some detoxifying.

Before you start on any programme, get clearance from your doctor. Here are some organ-specific programmes from detox experts:

Liver : What it does: Its main function is to filter toxins for excretion. Blood that passes through the intestines can reach the heart and lungs only after passing through the liver. How to detox it: detox plans for the liver can range from simple to advanced. A basic plan, for instance, includes milk thistle, dandelion (from health stores in capsule form), and a vegetarian diet with no alcohol for one to three weeks. You can repeat it every six months.

Kidneys : What they do: These are the other filtering organs that cleanse the blood of waste products. The kidneys contain millions of tiny filtering units called nephrons that separate nutrients from waste, then send waste into the urine. How to detox them: Drink two cups of dandelion-leaf tea and one cup of nettle tea a day to flush out the kidneys and help with fluid retention. If that's too much liquid to take, stick to the dandelion-leaf tea. Take the mix for six to eight weeks, one cup twice a day.

Skin : What it does: Sweat glands carry waste products, primarily urea and ammonia, from the body to be excreted in the form of perspiration. How to detox it: Ginger or marigold tea is a good remedy to try. Drink a cup two to three times a day for up to four weeks.

Intestines : What they do: The small intestine absorbs nutrients, leaving waste material to enter the large intestine or colon, then the rectum for elimination. The large intestine also absorbs needed water and minerals. How to detox them: one teaspoon of psyllium husks (from health stores) mixed in 150ml of juice or water. Drink it before bed, followed by 250ml of water afterwards. Take the mix for six to eight weeks, one teaspoon once a day.

Probiotics, the supplement of the moment, can also give your intestines a boost. Look for those that contain 15 billion organisms per capsule. "Take them for four weeks, then give your system a break for one to two weeks. This is to allow your digestive system to build a conducive environment for the good bacteria to thrive in. You can continue the course for half a year.

Gall Bladder : What it does: It stores bile - a fat-digesting and acid-neutralising liquid that is continually secreted by the liver. How to detox it: Blend the juice of two grapefruits with one tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil. Drink this two to three times a week for six to eight weeks.

Conclusions:

For a detox starting point, a brief abstinence from rich foods and alcohol will do the trick. Stop eating rich foods and drinking alcohol for a period of time. Instead, drink plenty of plain water and eat more fresh fruits and vegetables. For further improvement alternatives, water and fruits detox programme, herbals or using detox foot patches is a good choice.
