Natural solutions to youthful brain function...want to know more?
Whoever we are and where ever we live a sure sign that the years are creeping up on you are when you find a progressive memory decline and reduced mental awareness. While being often dismissed as “just part of normal aging”, there are things we can do with natural solutions and natural medicine to keep this decline to a minimum. Here are some solutions that most people can implement.
We can retain optimal brain function by avoiding alcohol, heavy metals and legal & illegal drugs. Use of nutritional supplements(SEE YOUR NATUROPATH) and changing your food choice to Stoneage Nutrition will provide a support network for the aging brain and controlling stress is the most effective preventive action.
Minimising exposure to environmental toxins, including cigarette smoke and other harmful chemicals, reduces the potential for oxidative damage on your brain.
Stress Management is fundamental for keeping your brain healthy and sharp!
How you respond to stress will impact on your mental function and can cause disturbances in your neurotransmitter function and hormonal balance. Research shows that mothers with extreme mental stress in pregnancy will double the risk of having children with learning difficulties later in life.
To keep the blood flow to the brain and encourage the growth of new brain cells it is essential to exercise. Exercising will not only improve your muscular system and muscle Coordination but is also the key for a healthy brain function.
Exercising your brain (yes you can exercise more than just physically) will also keep it in top shape. Learning new things, i.e. languages, completing an academic course by studying again, reading new things, playing music instruments will keep your brain sharp.
Nutritionally; reduce the level of cholesterol, saturated and trans fats; increase levels of phyto nutrients including tomato, broccoli, garlic, melons, blueberries, red beans and flax seeds; eat more fish such as sardines tuna, salmon and herring; eat more foods high in anti-oxidants such as berries, brussel sprouts, broccoli, beetroot, oranges, grapes, cherries and capsicum; consume anti-oxidant rich drinks such as green tea. To cover this perfectly just go and change to Stoneage Nutrition and this will cover it all.
