WHAT HAVE YOU DONE FOR YOUR BRAIN TODAY?
When I ask people that question, they look at me strangely, wondering how they are supposed to answer it, and most likely thinking, “Am I supposed to do something for my brain?”…the most common answer is that they had a cup of coffee.
How is it that our most important organ, that works for us 24/7, is the most forgotten? It’s because it’s the most complicated and medical science is only just beginning to scratch the surface of understanding how our brain works and what it needs to function optimally.
“Learning to nourish, exercise and relax your brain is important to optimize cognitive function”
I am not a medical doctor, but upon learning about the work of Allysian Sciences in the field of brain health, I realized I had a passion for educating people on the need to look after our brain – something I had never thought about previously either, but suddenly it all started to make sense. I wanted to share this with the world, in the hope that I can help the next generation, learn to look after their brain as a preventative approach, give them education to understand brain for life, and in the process delay any onset of Alzheimers or Dementia, IF they are already pre-disposed to it. These diseases should be rare, not near-epidemic as they are today.
Since 2000, deaths as a result of Dementia or Alzheimer’s have increased by 89%
Learning how to feed, excercise and relax your brain, can be an effective prevantative.
Currently Western medicine has our bodies living longer, but this medical system has been a “neck down” system, so our body lives for longer, but our brains are not, we have this “gap”, and it results in way too many diagnosis of Dementia and Alzheimers, and other brain-related diseases.
Other factors are making it necessary to do more for our brains, so they don’t “burn out”:
- Lack of nutrients in the soil = lack of nutrients in our food = we are not feeding our brain well enough for the amount of energy it needs, for the 24/7 demands we make on it.
- Increase in toxins in our food and environment, that are causing health problems for our brain and body.
- People living in stress and overwhelm, results in cortisol levels way higher than they should be, which actually causes the breakdown of neural pathways and causes the brain to age more rapidly.
- Poor sleep – our brain needs 7 – 8 hours of quality sleep per night, as while we sleep, it works. It cleans itself (detoxes) aside from processing what you did through the day, laying memories, and re-charging the body.
- Lack of oxygenation to the brain – a more sedentary society has resulted in this.
- “We have a health care industry, that doesn’t care about our food and a food industry that doesn’t care about our health”. ~ Ocean Robbins, The Food Revolution Network.
DID YOU KNOW YOU CAN HAVE ALZHEIMERS FOR 20 YEARS BEFORE A DIAGNOSIS?
747,000 Canadians are living with Alzheimer’s disease,
a number expected to increase to 1.4 million by 2030
Early warning signs are being ignored, and accepted as “aging”, such as when you start to notice you don’t remember people’s names as well, or you go into a room to get something and don’t remember what you came to get. You don’t have to accept this as “aging”, these are signs you need to start doing more to look after your brain.
- 747,000 Canadians are living with Alzheimer’s disease, a number expected to increase to 1.4 million by 2030.
- For every person with the disease, two or more family members provide care. Women account for 70% of family caregivers.
- 72% of those suffering in Canada are women.
- Economic cost in Cda was $33 billion in 2011 and is expected to be $293 billion by 2040. As a society, who is going to pay for that?
