Could’nt we all use a better memory and less of the brain fog? Here are some great tips to help you think more clearly!
Eat Brain Food
If food is the most powerful medicine, then what you put on the end of your fork will have a major impact on the health of your brain.
You need to eat brain foods and avoid eating poisonous, brain-damaging junk foods. Follow these tips, starting with the one listed just below.
Tip #1: Avoid Brain-Damaging Foods
The list of brain-damaging foods you need to avoid is short. Those foods are:
1.Processed, refined carbohydrates and sugar
2. High-fructose corn syrup
3.Toxic fats – especially trans fats
5.Food additives and preservatives
8.Food allergens (the two most common are gluten and dairy)
Support Your Brain Chemistry
Nutrients are like fertilizer for your brain. They are little helpers that improve communications and connections.
In a perfect world, no one would need supplements. But given the stresses of our modern world, the poor quality of the food supply, and the high load of toxins in our brain, everyone needs them.
Here is what to take.
Tip #2: Take a whole food multi-vitamin
In addition to what is in your multivitamin, you should take vitamin D3 because it is significantly deficient in so many people.
Live a Brain-Enhancing Life
Tip #3: Push the Pause Button
Many people today are so chronically stressed out, they don’t even know how to push their pause button. Here are some ideas that may help. Try the following:
3.Tense and relax
6.Pray, chant, dance, and celebrate
7.Practice Tai Qi Quan or Qigong
8.Write in a journal
10.Listen to music
11.Be creative – paint, draw, sculpt, etc.
Detoxify Your Brain
The only things as important as eating the right foods for brain health are limiting your toxic exposure and enhancing your detoxification system. Follow these tips to start doing just that.
Tip #4: Eat Detoxifying Foods
You need more glutathione, a sulfur-like substance that transports toxins out of your body via your urine and stool. To naturally increase your glutathione, increase your intake of the following foods:
1.Cruciferous vegetables (cabbage, broccoli, collards, kale, Brussels sprouts, Chinese cabbage, bok choy, arugula, radish, wasabi, watercress, kohlrabi, mustard greens, rutabaga, turnips) – at least one to two cups, cooked, daily
2.Curcuminoids (turmeric, curry)
4.Green tea, one to two cups a day (boosts liver detoxification)
5.High-quality, sulfur-containing protein (eggs, garlic, onions).
Protect Your Brain
Unnecessary trauma and other potentially brain-damaging exposure can negatively affect brain health. Take this simple step to protect your brain.
Tip #7: Reduce Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) Exposure
Though we can’t completely eliminate exposure to EMR in today’s world, it is possible to reduce our exposure. Try some or all of the following:
1.Minimize your exposure to wireless communication devices.
Have a great day.
