Want to Improve Memory, Concentration, Prevent Alzheimer’s?

How many times have you headed to another room with the intention to retrieve or do something, arrive and then can’t remember what you came there for? Ever been frustrated because you’re so overwhelmed with tasks that you can’t seem to organize your thoughts in order to get started? Problems remembering where you placed your keys? We’ll sit tight, help is on the way!

I am very passionate about brain health because after all, the thing that makes us who we are, our thoughts, our character, our personality all are mostly shaped by how we process things and our memory. We are all unique individuals because of our experiences, talents and beliefs. We lose our minds and we’ve lost self. As a youth I can remember not getting the opportunity to know my Great Grandmother. She passed away at the age of 88 but truthfully had been gone for years due to what they used to call senility but now we would say Alzheimer’s Disease. Here are a few videos I’d like to share about preventing loss of brain function and even aiding in the health of our brains.

Dr. Neal Barnard’s Research Summary (left) and the USDA’s compromise to the Pyramid (right).

This is a short summary that I have researched and try to incorporate into my regular diet and lifestyle:

  • Nuts which are rich in vitamin E such as almonds which provides antioxidants to destroy free radicals that kill our brain cells. Walnuts which are high in DHA (a form of Omega 3 Fatty Acids) have been shown to decrease brain fog. Vitamin E from food sources such as these have been proven to prevent Alzheimer’s Disease as well. Just a handful a day is required.
  • Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fish, and olive oil which are all high in antioxidants, nature’s assassins for free radical damage that kills cells in our bodies and can also lead to cancer. Foods rich in vitamin C such as fruits and veggies help to combat free radicals as well. The Super Fruit in this category are those rich in color such as blueberries for example.
  • Supplements such as Ginkgo Biloba, Magnesium, Ginseng and Essential Oils such as Rose Mary as well as the herb sage help to fight off inflammation and free radicals. Rose Mary and Sage herbs prevent Alzheimer’s and increase blood flow to the brain. Sage helps to boost memory recall and MORE! See the below video.
  • Fish high in Omega- 3 Fatty Acids (the brain is made of mostly fat- 60%). These fats are linked to memory and learning. Baked or boiled Salmon, Sardine, Tuna, Atlantic Mackerel, Cod, and Lake Trout are great sources of Omega-3.
  • Green Tea is a great anti-oxidant and increases alertness and mood. It is said that coffee has the same effect but it is acidic and may not be the best for body pH
  • Eggs- Can’t keep enough of these in our home. We mainly eat them boiled so that they make easy to go meals and can be prepared ahead of time with little effort. They are an excellent source of B6, B12, Folate and Choline, which are extremely important for memory, mood and mental decline.
  • AVOID fried foods with saturated and trans fats!!!!!!!! These are extremely damaging to our brains.
  • Avoid supplementing with iron unless it is recommended by your health care professional. Too much iron and copper can be very damaging to the brain also. Even with our cast iron cooking pots and pans, don’t use them daily.
  • Exercise– 40 minutes of vigorous walking three times a week
  • SLEEP at least 7 hours
  • Decrease stress to keep cortisol levels in check (as we have spoken about a high cortisol level is linked to so many diseases. You may call it meditation but I call it our Spirituality. I believe with my whole being in the Creator of Avraham, Isaac and Jacob that He is in control of all and without Him, I have nothing.

Amazingly Underutilized Healing From a Simple Mineral & My Personal Testimony

There is a mineral that is found in the earth, in plants and the sea. It’s so essential to us because every cell in our body contains it and needs it to function. About 60% of this mineral in our bodies is found in bone and the rest in muscles, soft tissues and fluids, including our blood. It’s involved in over 400 cellular reactions! This mineral is none other than Magnesium.

It has some extremely amazing properties that make it so critical for us to thrive and maintain optimum health. Some that are just currently being researched and spoken about. More and more physicians are waking up to the fact that we have been fooled for centuries into believing that we are actually healing the sick with medication versus alleviating symptoms and in a way arresting the disease; but what’s at the root cause. Could a lot of what we suffer for come from deficiencies of vitamins and minerals in the body?

Do you suffer from osteoporosis and take calcium with or without vitamin D? What about Diabetes or at risk for Stroke? How about have you been told that you have calcifications in your arteries? Check out this video on Magnesium. I think you’ll find it extremely interesting.

Must See This Vid!!!!

In seeing how a magnesium deficiency can cause so many problems but yet be so simple to rid ourselves of these symptoms or diseases, or even prevent them, NOW WHAT WILL YOU DO ABOUT IT? The first thing you should do is make sure you consult your doctor. Hopefully you have a physician that is open to utilizing diet and nutrition to heal. Second, do your research and find the best supplement if you really feel you have a deficiency. Blood draws can be done as well. There is an excellent magnesium supplement that crosses the Blood Brain Barrier and therefore gets this amazing mineral to the site of action in which it’s needed if you suffer from Central Nervous System issues and more. It’s called Magnesium L-Threonate.

My Personal Testimony of Healing

This story begins about a year and a half ago when I began taking supplemental calcium and vitamin D tablets daily as prevention for osteoporosis, which runs in my family. My Mother and Grandmother seemed to develop it and I did not want to acquire it. My doctor recommended it and about 5-6 months after taking it daily, I developed what looked like a bone spur or some time of deposit on my hand. My research began and I tried a number of things. After researching about Magnesium and how it can help calcium to be balanced in the body and even help with this issue, I decided to try it.

This is what happened:

You can make a huge difference in your health through eating to live, eating healthy and if needed, taking a select amount of supplements if needed. Supplements are not to be taken on a whim. Do your own research, find out if you are deficient in something that is causing you to suffer from Dis-ease, try something natural if it is not an urgent situation and then monitor for results.
