Feed Your Body What It Needs to Excel
e need to learn how to feed what the body needs to excel. In spite of children who were observed at the Waldorf School, who put together the food plan right for them, those children were in a more-or-less controlled environment. I was in a store and the employee and I engaged in small talk. She mentioned that she felt tired. I asked her if she had a car. She said she did. I asked did she give her car a different fuel after using one that had it perform well. She said yes. I said, “Like the car will perform differently with another fuel, so will your body. You put good gas in, it gives you the mileage you want. Other than that, you see it doesn’t do well. If you eat food your body needs, it will be charged. You might think about hydration too.” The employee related to the analogy.
As we age, we mature and assume more responsibilities. The environment, where those responsibilities exist, determines how we respond, or react. If your body isn’t getting the foods and nutrients it needs, mentally and emotionally, to function properly, then it is likely that your brain will be affected. Some people spend more money and time feeding a seemingly correct diet to their pets or selecting proper additives for their cars than they do for themselves. What matters most is that you value yourself. You are worth the time required to seek out what supports you.
"Ekendo Temple Pond" by Allison L. Williams Hill
Your brain uses the foods you feed your body. They occupy the same volume and are connected within same, get it? If your diet is unhealthy then not only does your body slow down but so does your brain. Often this comes on so slowly that the effects are not realized until you’re older. The results of unhealthy eating practices that show up in old age are blamed on old age. Science has proven that there are no diseases associated with old age. Inflammation affects the effectiveness of the brain.
As one ages, it may become difficult to recall thoughts like dates and figures. Inflammation, your immune system’s natural response to a stimulus that can harm your body, which can destroy brain cells. To maintain a healthy and productive life, it is vital that you treat your body and your mind conscientiously so that both are functioning efficiently.
Studies show many activities affect the body and mind, Exercise helps
the mind and prevents hypertension. Adequate rest and relaxation give
the body the time to repair and regenerate. The need for sleep varies
per person, depending on what you do. Studies show sleeping in
segments, such as two two or four-hour periods would refresh the body.
Sleeping too long can have adverse effects such as fatigue and poor
brain function. Another habit, smoking, is unlike the other two.
Jeffrey Wigand, a man who may have saved many lives, revealed to the world that the tobacco industry used cigarettes as the vehicle to deliver nicotine, a narcotic. Many people, over decades, became addicted and developed cancer, an inflammatory disease. The significant thing about smoking is that it robs the body of oxygen. Inflammation is further accelerated when the entire body loses oxygen. The American Cancer Society’s anti-smoking campaign was extremely effective in exposing the consequences of smoking. The first disease that comes to mind is lung cancer leading to death. But heart disease, losing teeth and parts of one’s face are some of the sad, debilitating experiences people have for glamorous affectations.
Vaping, like smoking does not nourish the body or brain. Vaping was pitched as an alternative to smoking, however, a vapor delivers metals into the lungs. It is addictive and it remains to be seen what the effects on and in the body and brain produce.
Again with the studies! Phyto-nutrients from plant-based foods are the best source for nutrition. They produce their own antioxidants to protect themselves from diseases, pollution and other harmful elements in the environment. So, we should ingest foods that are rich in antioxidants such as fruits and berries including grapes, cherries, apples, plums and oranges. Blueberries and cranberries have proven to be especially high in antioxidants that aid in memory retention. Eat by color (link) and you can’t go wrong.
I like what Dr. Gary Null says, “If it has a face and moves, leave it alone.” That includes everything from cows to spiders. I get a lot of benefit from his program, The Gary Null Show on prn.fm, Progressive Radio Network.
Amish Market Fresh Greens by Allison L. Williams Hill
Leafy greens clean and repair the body. Given the process of mass-produced food, it is not enough to have a salad at lunch and a couple of vegetables at dinner. Phyto-nutrients from plants heal and the quantities needed for healing approach what Rabelais wrote in one of his stories how babies drink milk in amounts not just one, but from fields of cows. Juicing greens and consuming them in large quantities will help the body heal.
Dr. Null’s information is available at Pub Med online, the United States’ source for international health information. This site includes information on ivermectin, the already available anti-viral product used for decades that Tony Fauci ignored to push the coronavirus concoction.
Amish Market,MD Fresh Produce 2 by Allison L. Williams Hill
Vegetables high in antioxidants include the green and leafy types such as spinach, broccoli, kale and Brussels sprouts. Beets, red bell peppers, onions and garlic are also rich in the desired nutrients. Chard, turnip and collard greens are also high in antioxidants but not as much as their cousins. The latest information on beets is that they are high in nitric acid, great for the body in improving physical performance and recovery from exercise.
Also, a recent study found that acupuncture helps the body to produce nitric acid for pain control and recovery.
Omega 3 fatty acids must be remembered and they may be found in salmon, tuna, herring, mackerel and sardines. Seafood is packed with B vitamins as well as dairy products, eggs, spinach, carrots and various nuts and seeds. Personally, I am working towards eliminating seafood from my diet and this requires further study on my part to ensure that I provide my body with what it needs in the absence of this source.
Some spices are also excellent in providing a better memory and healthy body by improving your motor skills and aiding your brain to communicate and regenerate.
Curcumin, found in ginger and curry, has been said to prevent memory loss. Rosemary, both fresh and dried, stimulates and enhances the memory while it also calms your nerves and promotes a healthy circulatory system.
Nootropics improve the processing speed and mental alertness of the brain. I wrote about the brain and minerals at Brain and Minerals. It puzzled me that tests for the brain did not include minerals so I looked at how important they were to brain health.
Health is vital and one must work to maintain it. This requires research, not only about the information that is available but what works for you. There are some people who can eat many foods without issues and there are those who must be selective about what they consume. Keep reading. Coenzyme Q 10, for example, in the 1990s was used for helping the heart and create energy. In the 2000s, it was found to support the gums. In the 2020s, CoQ10 was found to help the brain.
