Exercise in Bursts:
Daily exercise makes your brain bigger (Dementia shrinks it as well as processed foods). You want a bigger brain, which inspires growth of new brain cells and connections. Exercise keeps your brain happy and promotes better sleep. It keeps away depression. (Daily exercise supervised to start off)
*Do breathing exercises, daily see breathing exercises.
*Walking/sprinting in place…start slow work up JUST KEEP MOVING. Allow the blood to flow to your brain.
*Walk in place (hold chair for balance if needed), speed it up slow it down.The fast/slow rhythm will enhance your lungs, heart and brain.
*Later goal is for the balancing exercises. Hold solid chair back lightly, stand on one foot, then the other, alternating, do for 1-2 minutes. each week can increase the time as the body conforms.
*Not only exercising your body but your brain as well…learning NEW things stimulates the brain cells into growing new ones. These exercises are for beginners and keep moving.
The brain and neurological tissues are extremely sensitive regions of the body and are highly susceptible to infection and inflammation. One of the ways our body protects itself from threats of infection is through the immune process called inflammation, but if there is too much inflammation going on it can damage the neurological tissue and cause problems.
Food is a big contributor to inflammation. Inflammatory foods include, dairy, sugars, refined grains, grain-fed meat, bad fats, such as corn, unfermented soy, canola oil, hydrogenated oils, all oils that are used for frying. Fried foods are a culprit for inflammation in the body. The closer you stay to a whole-foods diet the less inflammation you will have..Organic foods only, avoiding GMO (genetically modified organisms). Organic Omega 3 fatty acids, Organic Hemp Oil, MCT Oil, and Organic Coconut Oil, help reduce inflammation.Wash all fruits and veggies in the sink with a tsp. of baking soda to decontaminate the chemical residues.
Clean filtered water:
Hydration is critical…it washes out toxins and waste products. Our cells are working hard all day long and water is the way these cells won’t get gummed up, and fail to eliminate their waste products. It keeps are body running smoothly and efficiently. The brain will also get soft and shrinks if it’s not sufficiently hydrated. If we don’t get enough fluid moving through the body everything starts to back up and the body is becoming literally poisoned. Hydration with healthy water is the best. Tap water and water in plastic bottles are not the best; the bottled water sits in the chemical ladened plastic for weeks or even months. The best water is fresh water that is distilled or second best, cleaned with activated charcoal preferably in your own home, and stored in glass.
Benefits of Fasting:
Last meal of the day 3 hours before bedtime because it helps the process of melatonin and sleep. Breakfast will be at least 12 hours from the last meal from the night before to help the body’s immune senescence to happen. It allows the body to purge itself of some of those old cells, so the immune system can create new ones. The circadian cycles of the body are at work during the hours of ‘fasting’ to allow the body to metabolize and eliminate the processes of the foods last eaten. It helps keep the immune system healthy. Drinking more water during these periods especially when rising in the morning helps the cleansing process.
*Nature’s Way MCT Oil…starting at 1 tsp/day with food mid day, work up to in combination with coconut oil to 3 Tbl./day
*Organic Unrefined Virgin Coconut Oil (see above)
*Enzymedica Digest Enzymes take just before eating ANY/ALL cooked foods. Take at the beginning of the meal that will contain cooked foods.
*Vitamin B-12, B-6, Folic Acid. and Vitamin D-3/one capsule, each once a day with lunch.
*DHA/EPA Fish oil capsules or DHA Vegetarian Algae 2 per day with dinner.
