Mental Clarity and memory are two things that most people assume they’ll lose with age. Many people suffer memory loss due to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain. The brain along with every other cell in the body is fed by our blood, the “life” of the body. If proper nutrients aren’t getting to the brain, they either aren’t in the bloodstream, or there is a problem with the blood delivery system. Also consider that some substances in the blood could be toxic to the brain.
One of the most important factors in brain health is omega 3 oils which are absent from the average diet. Deficiencies of these oils can cause impaired ability to learn and recall information. DHA, or docosahexaenoic acid, is a particular omega 3 fatty acid that is a fundamental building block for cellular membranes, most notably neuronal membranes in the brain. High quality sources of these are found in the wide variety of Nordic Naturals fish oil line up.
B vitamins help maintain the health of our nerves and brain. Some cases of Alzheimer’s disease have been found to be due to B-12 and B-complex deficiency. Our ability to assimilate B-12 is sometimes impaired so it is helpful to supplement with either high-absorption or sublingual formulas such as the Zeniral Ginseng Plus and Zeniral Stress Aid.
Problems with the blood delivery system caused by clogged arteries and/or high cholesterol and triglycerides and high blood sugar could interfere with the brain’s ability to get nutrients. Natural agents that help increase circulation will help the brain work better – these include the Omega 3 oils, ginkgo biloba, and lecithin. It is important to change your habits (diet and exercise) so that you lower cholesterol, triglycerides and blood sugar if they are problems for you. Ginkgo biloba can be found in the Zeniral Memory Aid and Ginseng Plus.
Ginkgo biloba is a powerful antioxidant herb that benefits the brain, retina and cardiovascular system. Studies show that ginkgo has a positive and measurable effect on dementia in people with Alzheimer’s disease and people recovering from strokes. Other studies show that it enhances concentration and improves memory. Ginkgo is used in many formulas for enhanced mental clarity, better circulation and also for attention deficit disorder. Other herbs used for mental clarity and learning include Convallaria majalis found in the Zeniral Memory Aid, and Scutellaria latiflora which is found in the Zeniral Relax Aid.
Also notable for brain and nerve health is the following one of many key ingredients in Zeniral’s Vertigo Aid, that is Gelsemium sempervirens, commonly known as Yellow Jasmine which helps repair nerves by stimulating nerve growth factors, supporting normal cognitive function and muscular coordination and response. Gelsemium centers its action upon the nervous system, relieving various degrees of motor paralysis, dizziness, drowsiness, dullness, and trembling.
It is also important to avoid substances that are known to be toxic to the brain and nerves. These include the class of substances known as excitotoxins that excite the nerves to death. The most common excitotoxins are the artificial sweetener aspartame and the flavor enhancer MSG and GMO foods. Read labels of foods and diet products and make sure you are avoiding these toxins in order to maximize the health of your brain.
Remember the gut feeds the brain so always include Zeniral’s Digest Aid to cleanse and rebuild the whole digestive system and supply natural enzymes to preserve the vital functions of digestion, absorption, and elimination.
By William James “Bill” Cunningham, who since 1990, has been using Professor Nelson’s biofeedback systems from the very first generation called the “Eclosion” to the present new INDIGO System. Bill was fortunate to spend every working day with Professor Nelson in 1990 through late 1992 when Nelson departed for Budapest, Hungary. During this intense apprenticeship he learned the intricacies of Nelson’s biofeedback systems. Bill also learned the safe, legal, and effective use of Nelson’s homeopathic repertory which includes over 500 unique remedies! In his nearly 20 years of active clinical practice, Mr. Cunningham has worked with over 30,000 clients via Professor Nelson’s bio- feedback systems and homeopathic repertory. He has taught over 4,000 practitioners the art of “Nelsonian and Biofeedback Home- opathy” and still sees many clients monthly. William is currently working on a Phd. in Biofeedback and Homeopathy with Professor Nelson as his Mentor and recently attained his “Homeo-Therapeutic Coach” status from NTCB.
