What happened to feed your brain first? June 29, 2010

When I started this blog back in 2007, I knew that specific foods were important to the brain. I knew we should be eating for brain health, not just to fill our stomachs.

I was full of ideas and motivation. That is, until I started to look for concise, proven ideas. There were a number of nutritional products to boost brain function already on the market, and more seem to appear everyday. But in my opinion, nutrition supplements are just supports to what we should be doing with our lifestyle, and exact brain healthy lifestyle information is most important.

Also, before I can recommend a product, I feel the need to try it out first. But then, just because something works or doesn’t work for me is no real criteria of an effective product.

So this blog sort of sat in limbo, until now. Now, thanks to research by two different doctors, there is a lot to say about feeding your brain. They approach brain food from two completely different angles, but basically agree on the foods.

The first is Dr. Daniel G. Amen, who has been taking SPECT scans to determine brain function since 1991. By looking at brain imaging, he sees what specific areas of the brain are not working.

Working with these brain images for almost 20 years, plus doing his own research into supplements and food, he has detailed suggestions for brain food.

Dr. Eric Braverman, MD is another outstanding doctor that has been focusing on brain research and treatment for over 25 years.

The good news is there is a whole new generation of physicians and researchers that are debunking old myths about the brain, and giving us tremendous new insights into brain function. This new generation of researchers believes that physical symptoms and illness start with brain imbalances.

Scientific research supports the fact that our brain has everything to do with aging, our health, our emotions, actions and reactions.

There have been numerous books already written on the body – mind connection. And Dr. Braverman adapted this concept to remarkable working blueprint for health and weight control, based on brain biochemical function. When electricity from the human body reaches the brain, it is processed through four neurotransmitters. For any given body function, all four neurotransmitters must be processed in a specific order, in a specific amount.

Deficiencies in the neurotransmitters directly lead to decreased physical and mental health.

Dr. Braverman states what I already believed when I named this blog. “Everything we put in our mouth first affects our brain.”

Do you want real science-based information on optimum brain health?

Start with these 3 books. It could be the catalyst to making permanent lifestyle changes that affect how you think, feel, act, and age for the rest of your life!
