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 find good diets that actually work

How to find good diets that actually work

Finding good diets that actually work can take time. The effort spent on researching information on diets and whether or not they have been successful for others is definitely worth it. Some diets can help people lose weight quickly in the beginning. This is great motivation to keep going and keep losing weight. 

A good diet will include information on nutrition, healthy weight loss, exercise and better eating habits. Look for a diet that includes all of these factors and then go through the steps outlined here to find a good diet that actually works. 

First, begin by identifying how much weight you need to lose. Take your body height and build into consideration as you do this. 

Second, decide how long you have to lose weight. It may be ideal to lose ten pounds fast and then take some time to lose the final fifteen. Losing too much weight too quickly is definitely not healthy. It is commonly known that anyone can lose approximately two pounds a week without compromising their health 

Once the goals are set it is time to research diets plans. Watch out for fad diets. They may sound good but in all likelihood they will not work in the long run. 

Try to find a diet that has nutritional support and recipies. These two things can often be the difference between success and failure. Also, choose a diet that understands how the body works and that different people need different things. This will increase the chance of long term weight loss. 

Finally, choose a diet that makes sense to you and fits into your lifestyle. Don’t try to become a vegetarian if you love meat - the raw diet simply will not work for you. Choose a diet that works with you instead of against you. If it sounds too difficult then it will probably not work for you. 

Once you have found a diet you need to follow it to see the pounds come off. Many people follow parts of a diet and ignore the aspects of it that do not appeal to them. This will simply not work. Not following a diet plan will certainly lead a dieter down the path to failure. 

Finally, try to find a newsletter or weight loss forum to keep you informed and motivated. Getting regular advice and support is essential to success and to find good diets that actually work.
