Nutrition of the Brain
Hey guys, Doctor Christopher Hood here. How many of you guess say, “There is so much information, I don’t know what to do, I don’t know how to apply it.” I’m teaching this stuff and I feel the same way, every time I go on the internet, there’s more information and how it applies. So, we’re going to get into some pacific this month. So, when it comes to nutrition, the first thing we want to address is the nutrition of the brain. Your brain is controlling the function of every other major organ, gland and system of your body and it does that through the spinal cord. Your brain is sending energy, electrical chemical signals through the spinal cords, down to the nerves that go to your heart, your lugs all the tissues! But! How do we nourish that brain, plenty of people come into my office, that are feeling tired, fatigued, depressed and they don’t know why. So, it all starts with is your brain. Your brain is control your functions. Number one thing I tell people what they can do is taking good healthy, omega fats. Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids are essential for brain developments. That’s why grandparents gave us fish oil as children. Because it healthy growth of the neurons of the brain. The brain is mostly made out of fat and protein, essential fats are responsible for making sure your synapses fire off when they’re supposed to, so you’re brain works at a sufficient pace. It also reduces inflammation in the body, lowers cholesterol, SO GOOD FOR YOU. 3000 mg of omega fats a day keeps the doctor away. 3000 mg a day, helps nourish your brain keep it healthy, keep it thriving. Number two thing I see people doing, which is incorrect is that people are using artificial sweeteners. The pink packet, the blue packet, the yellow packet, they all have neurological consequences. So much in fact that they’re doing research on multiple sclerosis and parkinson’s disorders along with artificial sweeteners. So, you got to cut out using artificial sweeteners. Pink, blue, yellow, oh my gosh, they’ll have purple one day, I don’t know. They’re bad for you, stop it, it is a neurotoxin get them out of your diet. Instead, what do you want to do? Stevia, stevia is a natural plant, it’s a ground up plant root. Its ultra sweet though, if you’re going to use it. So just a little tinsy bit, just a little bit goes a long way. You can use xylitol which is an alcohol based sugar, doesn’t affect your brain or your pancreas, if you’re worried about diabetes. You can also just use natural sugars, honey, raw sugars, dark molasses. No artificial sugars, instead natural sugars or stevia. The third thing we want to talk about is a nutritional supplement they just came out with. I’ve just been experimenting this within the past year, it’s called EHT. EHT itself has been show to increase the synapses in your brain so you’re brain functions better. So, it’s a newer product and now you’ve heard of it.
I hope these things are beneficial to you all, I’m doctor Christopher hood, it’s all good in the hood. God bless.
