Enhance Your Brain!
CBS Health News today tweets an article about preventing dementia with learning music. It reminds me of reading about a brain issue that a client recently came in with. He fills out a brain assessment form in office and his Temporal Lobe comes up. I work on the physical aspect of feeding the brain. I recommend other help if I feel it would be helpful, but, I feed the brain with everything I know.
Let’s talk about the Temporal Lobe. It is an area of the brain where abnormalities occur much more frequently than recognized. When problems arise with the temporal lobe, it can cause:
- memory problems
- headaches without clear explanation
- anxiety or fear for no particular reason
- abnormal visual or auditory distortions
- periods of spaciness or confusion
- word finding problems
- emotional instability
- mild paranoia
- aggression, internally or externally directed
I feed with supplements, every brain needs a little support. but there are things you can do daily to make positive changes on your own too.
- Experience life, experience – experiences! Do something to get excited about life!
Sing! Songs are healing.
- Listen to music, but don’t just listen, separate out sounds. First the drums, then just listen to the guitar.
- Learn music, play an instrument or sing, yodel!
- Get sleep! More than 6 hours a night!
- Eliminate caffeine and nicotine
- Keep your blood sugar balanced, no skipping meals. Limit sugar, eat balanced proteins and carbs
Then, come in and see me and we will feed with the proper nutrition! It’s an investment in yourself and your future. See you soon!!
It all started this past summer. I was at the pool, trying to give blood during the blood drive. I take the pre-requisite hemoglobin test to determine eligibility to give and FAIL. My hemoglobin was LOW! I had been on a daily salad binge and did liquid chlorophyll with regularity in my water. How could I have low hemoglobin?
Why Invest in Your Own Self (Care)
Why not just start with stress. We all have it, (most all of us). When not managed it can cause many symptoms!
Ninety-five percent of our neurotransmitters are in our gut. So does this explain when we are constipated why we are so grumpy – I’d say “YES”. We only have one-two percent located in our central nervous system, (our brain and spinal column).
One of the things I do is teach people how to eat. When you go grocery shopping the best place to start is the labels on the sides of all the boxes and bags. The ingredients list has always been there. I look for a few things on every label.

Each year in the United States, 1.3 million people over 45 years of age experience bone fractures associated with osteoporosis. For women, the most rapid rate of bone loss occurs in the first five years after menopause, beginning around age 45 when body hormone supplies undergo a dramatic change. The rate of bone loss then drops to about 1 per cent per year.
Okay, I hear men – have for 15 years – starting with my father when my mother was going through menopause, talk about the woman in their life going through menopause and how hard it is on them. But, I have rarely heard women talk about the husband’s version of menopause, called andropause.
