Brain Food Final Part 2

Recently on the news it was reported that a lack of sleep actually causes a degree of brain damage, so getting enough sleep is important.

If we don’t drink enough water but wait until we get thirsty it’s a definite sign that we are already dehydrated. Water is also needed for blood circulation without adequate amounts it thickens and causes the heart to strain, the heart is then expected to pump thick honey like consistency through its chambers.

Whey powder is another miracle food, has many benefits and am absolutely in love with it.

Cod Liver Oil – unpleasant as it is, (is available in capsules) has startling benefits to the brain, skin, bones. Click Here.

New recommendations for Cod Liver Oil in regards to the ratio of Vitamin D and E could be harmful if not taking the correct amount. Carlson’s seem to be the best brand: Click Here.

Juicing green leafy vegetables, carrots, apple and beetroot can make you look younger, can reverse even chronic fatigue in some according to the famous Cherie Calbom, Juice Lady. (Too much fruit is not good for the sugar content.) Click Here.

Breast cancer can be a Vitamin D3 deficiency and literally only costs cents a month to supplement your diet, again do your research and don’t just grab a bottle of the supermarket shelf. Take into account what part of the world you live, your diet and whether you get enough sun etc.

Natural Vitamin E that contains all its components is still the best antioxidant, but taking the popular type sold in stores that contains only one component can actually do more harm than good.  Dr. Mercola Click Here.

Medical professionals are great if you need medication or an operation, they are not required to learn about natural supplements or diet. Naturopaths are useful. I am not saying that you shouldn’t go to your GP but just be wise.

I am not a health expert, this information is common knowledge neither suggesting for anyone to replace proven medical treatment in favor of natural remedies, or go off their medication. Just be informed and keep an open mind.

Brain Food Part 1

 Brain Food

Part One of Two Part Series

Having a healthy brain we would all agree is important, one of my passions is looking into truths about foods and vitamins. Everyone has their Achilles heel when it comes to health, but some foods you thought were bad may in fact be good. Look at butter for instance. So-called health experts were touting the evils of it not so long ago, and salt – well that was from the very devil himself or so we were led to believe!

When I was growing up it was considered folly to use salt in cooking or sprinkle it on your food. Now we’re told to add it to just about everything – now it’s supposed to be imperative to good cooking, bringing out flavour and sealing in meat juices. In reality if we don’t have salt the body will die, we don’t need a lot, but we definitely do need it. Celtic Sea Salt is better as it hasn’t been adulterated like common table salt. Butter will not give you breast cancer like most margarine and now we are allowed to eat eggs which has every vitamin except for vitamin C.

We’ve even been duped as far as cholesterol and it’s relation to some fats. Doctors are not required to learn about nutrition, so seek a second opinion and consult a naturopath. Don’t readily accept what legal drug pushers advise as one year they will tell you to have a glass a wine with your evening meal every day, the next they’re saying it’s destroying people’s organs and they’re alcoholics. By the way we didn’t hear an apology after they recklessly blasted that all over the media.

The Solution?

One of the best brain food is coconut oil and it’s one of the few foods that can truly be classed as a superfood. It contains good cholesterol, something the so-called ‘health experts’ made a mistake when they released the wrong message some years ago, but did’nt correct. In fact coconut oil helps with serum cholesterol in all areas of the brain and helps with conditions such as autism, Alzheimer’s, serious mental problems such as depression, bipolar and worse.

I’m not a health expert, all of this information is common knowledge. I’m not advocating anyone to go off their medication, but to seek a second opinion and to consult a naturopath or dietician, as doctors are not required to learn about nutrition.
