Brain Awareness Month

by | Mar 16, 2021 | Nutritional Pillar

Hello, hello! Today we are going to talk about brain damage… specifically, yours.

 

The first time a patient is in my office, I will ask if they have had a concussion or hit their head. If either one of those questions comes back as a yes, I know we need to fix it. The brain processes close to 17 trillion messages a minute, any blows or inflammation to this area will slow this transmission which means the rest of the body at some point also won’t work properly either.

Once we establish this, I ask them to incorporate fats into their daily diet. Often times I get a look of disbelief because we have been taught that fats are bad. This is simply just not the case. What we need to do is learn the difference between good healthy fats and bad chemical fats. Good healthy fats would include coconut oil, olive oil, butter, fish, and we might need to supplement these in some way. I super love Olprima DHA/EPA.

In addition to increasing fats, we need to decrease your sugar intake. Sugar is known to decrease your brain’s ability to remember almost anything. Interestingly enough, Alzheimer’s is now being referred to as Diabetes 3. So remember, eliminate the sugar and increase fats to ensure a healthier functioning brain.
