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)

Insurance and Finances in Weight Loss Surgery

Insurance and Finances in Weight Loss Surgery

Weight loss surgery is known as a major surgery that is available. Because of the risks as well as the type of surgery it can cost a lot without the proper insurance in place. It is important to know what the finances will be in relation to the surgery, as well as what insurance will cover. This will help you to decide on whether the surgery is right for you.

The first question that enters into most of those who are considering weight loss surgery is whether their insurance will pay for the costs. This, of course will depend on the insurance coverage that you have. However, it can be expected that most health insurance companies will cover the cost of your surgery. Because weight loss surgery is considered to be a surgical intervention, it is considered valid by your insurance.

In order for you to get the right coverage on your insurance, you will need to meet certain criteria. This includes being over one-hundred pounds overweight with a body mass index of over forty. It also includes recognition and proof that other weight loss methods and diets have been tried and have failed. Insurance companies will also want to know if you have any medical conditions because of your weight. Different insurance companies will require different documents and forms to be filled out to make sure that you meet these qualifications. These will all help you to qualify for coverage by your insurance for the weight loss surgery.

After you have been approved by the surgeon, a letter of necessity will be sent to the insurance company. This letter will state why you need the surgery as well as specific qualifications in relation to the surgery. This step is known as preauthorization. Before any surgery can begin, the insurance company will need to make sure that it is a necessary surgery that meets all qualifications that have been specified by that company.

If your insurance company does not give you authorization to have the weight loss surgery, then you can take different steps to get approved. The first recommended step is to appeal the insurance companies reasoning. This is a simple letter written back to the insurance company stating why you need the surgery. You can also ask for a second opinion or have someone else review the information. If they state that you are qualified, then your insurance company will have to change their position. If the insurance company still does not approve your surgery, and you know that you will need it, you can speak to a legal firm or switch your insurance company.

Knowing the importance of the insurance involved in your weight loss surgery is important in determining whether you will be getting the surgery and what steps you have to take to be covered by your insurance. By knowing what this involves and understanding the process for being qualified for surgery by your insurance, it will make the processes before surgery easier mentally as well as financially.
