Lifestyle; keep inflammation stressors down. This mainly applies to foods but immune challenges like molds, bacteria, viruses and fungi contribute to this as well. But let’s talk about sugar first. Sugar tastes great and we need glucose to survive but refined sugar, corn syrup, agave syrup, eating too many fruits will jam up your brain and body over years and inflame your brain causing dementia. We can survive without eating simple carbs. We NEED proteins fats and complex carbs(fiber) to survive and cannot go without them. But sugar, even fruit we can get by without it.
The newest brain research says, “Sugar stimulates systemic(includes your brain) inflammation” Man made fats and too much Omega-6 fatty acids cause inflammation and eventually rot your brain. Fried foods, margarine, canola oil, corn oil. Crisco shortening, sunflower seed oil are all GMO, high heat processed which breaks down the integrity of the fat molecule making it “bad”. Commercial baked goods from cookies and doughnuts to 9 grain breads all full of sugar and chemical preservatives we can do without. Medicines break down the brain too.
Harmless Zyrtec contains aspartate which “melts” your brain. So season after season of using OTC allergy meds like Zyrtec will lead to memory loss and possibly dementia. Make smarter choices, find out what triggers your allergies and avoid it or do a ‘detox’ program here at the office and desensitize your system using our special system based on Chinese Acupuncture points and cold laser stimulation. It’s not a cure but it helps tremendously with “body sensitivity reactions”.
