Are you an air-head who forgets punch lines, remembers S&H Green Stamps but can’t recall yesterday? Remember what the dormouse said?
Kurt Vonnegut wrote that the trouble with our brains is they’re too large for our own good. We think too much. Our brains have proved to be terribly destructive when left unsupervised. Souls who control their thoughts and follow life’s purpose, avoid dementia. There are roughly 100 billion neurons, the same amount of stars in our galaxy, in your three pound brain. The human mind produces around seventy thousand thoughts a day. Its 77 percent water, 12 percent lipids, 8 percent protein, 1 percent carbs, 2 percent soluble organics, and 1 percent inorganic salt.
Food is heavenly brain fuel. You wouldn’t starve your car of fuel and expect it to run efficiently. Your brain needs fuel and maintenance too. Would you put cheap, low grade fuel in your Lamborghini (if you had one)? Well, your brain’s infinitely more valuable than that, so feed your head wisely. It’s been proven food stewed in chemicals, Chem Trails and preservatives dumb you down. Studies show IQ is affected by good or low grade diet and whether the subjects took multi vitamins with minerals.
DHA is a good fat found throughout the body. It goes straight to brain tissues to keep them functioning. In the March 2003 Discover magazine, describes how people in a 7-year study who ate tuna, salmon, mackerel or trout at least one time every week had a 30 percent lower occurrence of dementia. Norwegian Fish, flax oil caps and walnuts work well preventing blood clots and brain inflammation. Deliciously unrefined, virgin coconut oil produces ketones which dissolve brain plaques and tangles. Put two tablespoons in your oatmeal or hot tea. A combo of vitamin D-3, fresh ginger and turmeric, (curry ingredients) may speed bump Alzheimer’s. A 600 daily dose of Alpha Lipoic Acid has been shown to stop the progression of dementia. (Rush University Center-Chicago)
Medical experts say caffeine, a potent diuretic, leads to excessive urination, causing dehydration which creates a drought in the brain that results in a mineral imbalance that interferes with mental sharpness. Left untreated dehydration results in permanent brain damage or even death.
Dip your brain into a piece of soul-stirring, foot taping music, clear your mind of clutter and float downstream. Connect with nature; our precious home. Garden, take a peaceful walk, or partake in moderate outdoor physical activity. It stimulates oxygen flow to the brain and maintains mental sharpness. Laughter is brilliant medicine that releases feel-good endorphins, so loosen up that sphincter and laugh at your silly self. Your brain loves fun and learning at any age. Solve mental puzzles to invigorate and challenge your mind.
Take four deep breaths and exhale slowly and then take a nap. You’ll feel more alive and mentally productive. Light a scented soy candle or stop and smell the ethereal roses and listen to the rustling wind. Focus on and relax each muscle and then cleanse your brain of monkey chatter. Give your imagination permission to run naked in child-like wonder.
Eat wisely my dear friends and let your white light brightly shine. Now where are my keys?
