Brain Health Foods

Brain health is facilitated by eating smarter foods that will nourish the most important organ in our bodies. Shawn Stevenson’s excellent book “Eat Smarter” is highly recommended if you want to do a deeper dive on this subject.

We’ll start with the basics:

Filtered water – approx. 1/2 your body weight in ounces each day.

Supplements- Salt (Na)-pink Himalayan.

Magnesium(Mg)- increases brain plasticity.

Grass-fed beef, egg yolks, salmon, mackerel, trout are all excellent proteins for the brain.

Spinach, broccoli, garlic, blackberries, dark chocolate, black caviar, and salmon roe are excellent for brain regeneration.

Walnuts, cinnamon, and turmeric are also incredible for brain health.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil has healthy Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids that help reduce inflammation along with turmeric.

REDUCE SUGARS!!!- excess sugars cause major inflammation in the brain. Especially avoid artificial sweeteners like Sucralose. These sugars inflame the brain.

Drink healthy beverages like green tea and coffee or filtered water.

Brain Health is no accident. Eating smarter with these health foods will slow cognitive decline. Don’t forget about the importance of regular exercise also to help with balance and cognitive function. Chiropractic adjustments also stimulate the pathways inside the spinal cord and brain.

Test Your Cerebellum

This is an easy at home test you can quickly do to test your cerebellum. Your cerebellum is part of the brain responsible for balance and coordination. As we age, we can lose our balance and this can be in part due to not “working” our cerebellums. This leads to a increased risk of falls.

Try standing on one leg for 30 seconds. Then switch legs.

Now, try standing on one leg for 15 seconds with your eyes CLOSED.

A healthy brain and body should be able to perform both of these activities. If you are unable to do these simple exercises, then add them to your routine to strengthen and “work” your brain. The brain works in a hierarchy; if these lower brain functions aren’t operating correctly, then executive decision making in the pre-frontal cortex doesn’t occur proficiently. This helps with decision making.

Chiropractic adjustments help to stimulate all of these neurologic pathways.

Increasing Oxygen Saturation

Oximeter

Did you know that getting a chiropractic adjustment can increase your oxygen saturation within your body?

There have been studies that prove this happens, but I wanted to find out for myself if this was true. So Monday morning in my office, my first patient was a 72 YO female that had on a watch that monitored O2 levels and pulse. So we did a pre- and post reading of her levels. Oxygen was 96% and Pulse was 97 bpm.

I performed a HVLA( high velocity, low amplitude) adjustment on T2 and other vertebral levels in her cervical, thoracic , and lumbar spine. Finished up with a neuro-musculo massage to the hypertonic traps, scalenes, and erector muscle groups.

Upon getting off of the table, we immediately took her measurements again. Oxygen levels increased to 98%. + 2% improvement in overall oxygen saturation systemically. Pulse dropped down to 87 bpm.from a high of 97 bpm.

The remarkable thing about this is that the O2 levels are measured at the fingertip. I didn’t touch the fingertip. The relaxation of the system allows for better and more efficient breathing. More oxygen in your body and cells is CRITICAL for health. Reducing and relaxing stress in the heart is also extremely beneficial for your overall health.

Where does the FAT go when you lose weight?

Where does the FAT go when you lose weight? Shawn Stevenson’s excellent book on using foods as medicine is a must read. If you are serious about getting healthy through foods, then this book can point you in the right direction.

Each chapter outlines the basics of eating healthy. One of the more interesting topics was fat burning. A startling revelation came to me as I read Shawn’s description of what happens to fats off of the human body as they are burned.

Long chain fatty acids known as triglycerides get used as fuel. The Carbon (C) from this chain of triglycerides ultimately gets exhaled out of the human body in the form of Carbon Dioxide ( CO2).

So in other words, through your breath. The more you breathe and exhale the faster you can get rid of those Carbon chains. The faster you breath, the faster you’re losing weight. As you EXERCISE, increasing the heart rate and respiration rate is the way to lose FAT.

Exercise is the key to fat loss. Cardio work will help burn the especially dangerous belly and abdominal brown fat. Keep moving forward with cardio and weight bearing exercise, healthy foods, and nerve function for true health1

Covid Vaccine- Know the Facts

Science should guide our decision making when it comes to the Covid -19 Crisis in the world. Before you inject the Covid vaccine in your body, you may want to ask what ingredients are in the vaccine and what are the long term effects of that injection?

There is some frightening data that the CDC, AMA, Big Pharm, Big Media, Big Tech, and U.S. government don’t want you to know. Research compiled by Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, D.O. – who has been studying the effects of vaccines for over twenty-five years describes the effects of these new Covid vaccines; that uses mRNA from the Covid virus as the strand of genetic material that causes the antibody response. Most vaccines used to use an attenuated virus -weakened covid virus, as the foreign protein that triggers an immune response in humans. The new technology is only using a portion of the genetic material from the virus to introduce into the body for reaction.

The problem with using mRNA of the Covid virus is that it is a Trojan horse mechanism of introducing the foreign DNA into your cells. The immune response is a spike protein is created that is a non-neutralizing antibody. This creates a antibody dependent enhancement (ADE) situation where the mRNA starts replicating on it’s own creating more spike proteins to fight off the disease. Once theses spike proteins start reproducing in our bodies, there is no OFF switch.

These spike proteins cause damage to regular human tissue, specifically they cause diffuse alveolar damage to lung tissue. These spiked proteins start attacking the lungs and cause a breakdown of lung tissue. Puss and bleeding in the lungs are the end result. Furthermore, these spiked proteins attack Type 2 Macrophages which are a type of White Blood Cell that is our own natural immune response.

Normally, Type 1 Macrophages kills off the foreign invading protein and then Type 2 Macrophages comes in and cleans up the debris and heals the tissue. Type 1 Macrophages are highly inflammatory with cytokines and other chemicals that help the body overcome the pathology. Without the Type 2 Macrophages to heal after the inflammatory stage, the body stays in a chronic inflammatory state.

This then pushes the body into an auto-immune disease state as the body essentially starts attacking itself. Many people are suffering anaphylactic shock, stroke, and other neurological disorders after receiving these shots.

Please think twice before injecting all of these unknown chemicals, half of which you can’t pronounce, into your body. The long term effects of these vaccines has not been studied. Please don’t be a guinea pig of experimentation by the CDC and our government.

How to Bolster Immune System

The optimal trio

Strengthening the Immune System is vitally important right now.  The COVID-19 is wreaking havoc on the healthcare systems of the world.  You’re best defense is to strengthen your own natural immune system to help fight off the virus and prevent it from killing you.

The optimal trio of Mitocore, Turiva, and Vitamin K2 & D3 helps to bolster the body’s immune response in a number of ways.  First, Mitocore improves mitochondrial function to provide more energy on a cellular level.  Turiva offers gut and microbiome repair and overall a reduction in inflammation.  Vitamin K2 with D3 provide immune support and strengthen the guts microbiome which is critical to overall neuro-immune response and adaptability.

Get to your chiropractor for a spinal adjustment and the proper nutritional support to increase your odds of surviving COVID-19.  Proper nerve function is also vital to stimulating immune response.  The immune system is ultimately controlled neurologically.

Are Air Fresheners Toxic to You?

airfreshner1.jpgairfreshner2.jpg

Are Air Fresheners Toxic to you?  I don’t know, you be the judge; because this is what I found the other day when I realized my air freshener that was plugged into the wall apparently started to leak.  I found the paint chemically removed off the baseboard and my vinyl plank basement floor had melted away.  The odoriferous aspect of the   fresheners works like a benzene ring which is found in chemical solvents.  I don’t know about you, but I am unplugging all of these in my house and immediately removing them to stop breathing toxic chemicals.
