YOU and feeding YOUR brain/mind
The mind does not reside in the brain but for the YOUR mind to
work as well as it can then YOUR brain needs to be fed as well as
possible on a daily basis.
Your brain needs the same nutrients that every cell in your body
needs. It needs macronutrients, like fat, protein, and
carbohydrates and micronutrients like vitamins and minerals.
YOU have to eat portions of fat, protein, and carbohydrates every
day for the brain the function properly.
Oxygen and deep breathing is so very important also to the brain.
By deep breathing and knowing for SELF I have not had a
headache –can feel a headache coming on and I take deep
breaths for about 5-10 minutes and headache never occurs
because I am filling my body and mind with deep oxygen.
In the fat, protein, and carbohydrates they need to be organic and
NON-PROCESSED – only those fresh and organic should go into
your body for your mind to function at top level.
A health inspector told me once “only shop around the walls of a
grocery store – not in the middle where all the processed food is”.
Try not to eat anything with white flour or sugar in the recipe.
YOU are not going to be able to do that 100% of time but if you
think about it you can stop a lot of random eating.
It will help YOU to think how you will be at 80 or 90 years old –
and how you will age beautifully if you are careful with processed
foods in your 30-40.
Magnesium is one of the best minerals for the brain. There are
several different kinds and I take the one to help sleep and bowel
Omega 3 – especially during childhood – helps build proper
neural connections and helps create the barrier that protects the
nerves throughout life.
Vitamin D3-important for proper growth and development,
protecting the body against muscle weakness
Here is a list of brain foods
