Brain Health and Alzheimer’s Prevention
Many of us have had a moment where we cannot remember a certain fact or number or connection. Sometimes we laugh it off as a “senior moment” and then worry about it later in private. Our memory is a most precious system. Everything in life depends on the ability to make connections. In the early 21st Century, it is easy to become overwhelmed by the oceans of information available through technology advances and get overloaded by the seemingly endless stream of multitasking and over stimulated communication world we live in.
Our brains have 100 billion neurons. There are a myriad variety of genetic, biochemical, energetic, environmental combinations and factors that may slow down the connections neurons make. In this current time of immense uncertainty, change, transformation and upheaval those connections are increasingly important and needed.
Brain health and longevity can be nourished and improved in order to keep the brain smart, creative and youthful.
Taking care of one’s brain health is an individual process. Each person has a different protocol for brain health.
General brain well-being guidelines go as follows:
- What’s good for your heart is good for your brain.
- Strong blood flow is essential for brain health.
- Use a pharmaceutical grade fish oil supplement each day.
- How you treat your brain in the middle of life will make a major difference in later life.
- Blueberries and other berries are great for your brain.
- Less stress = Healthier brain
Cortisol is an adrenal hormone that your body produces in reaction to stress. Cortisol is a substance that is toxic to human brain cells
I am often consulted by family and friends of those whose parents or loved ones have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
While the origin of this disease is unknown, extensive focus is being placed upon the growth of a protein called beta-amyloid in the brain. This forms as a plaque over the brain. Additionally a toxic, soluble form of the protein may also be a cause.
While these may be overall principal causes of Alzheimer’s, other emotional body contributing factors must be explored.
For example, those who have a tendency towards stoicism and aloofness, and others who carry many of their loved one’s emotions with them have shown signs of Alzheimer’s.
The vast range of related emotional and psycho spiritual factors contributing to Alzheimer’s would require extensive writing that is beyond the space allotted for this article. Bear in mind that each person is different so each “case” needs to be discussed individually by your chosen medical intuitive practitioner.
Your physical body, through the symptoms of disease, will communicate to you when something in your life is out of order and needs attention or care. Your body gives many early warning signs. These messages are gentle warnings and need not be seen as catastrophic or dangerous. Most times it is just your bodies saying, “Hello, please pay attention”. Many struggle in even hearing and therefore listening to these messages.
A medical intuitive session can facilitate the “listening” of your body’s messages and provide an early start on preventing illness, having healthy relationships, and avoiding dangerous situations.
Our bodies are sensitive and complex intuitive receptors. Many of these messages go unheard each day. We have been socialized to live from the mind and ignore the rest of the body. We are assaulted with messages that promote “instant treatment gratification.” If we have a problem, we are often directed to take a pill.
There is now a rapidly growing body of medical literature documenting the physical effects of emotions on the body, including where and when specific emotional and mental patterns can set the stage for physical illness. We also need to understand how intuition comes to us through unique changes in mood, anxiety, attention, dreams, images, and physical symptoms in our body.
In my work as a medical intuitive, I see the symptoms in a person’s bodies, both physical and energetic, as clues to emotional patterns. I then look for their connection. The whole point of a medical intuition reading is not giving a diagnosis; it is describing a connection between emotional, mental and spiritual patterns and physical illness.
One client of mine, a man in his late fifties, called me and asked if I could work with his mother who was in a nursing home with Alzheimer’s. His mother was not able to really recognize anyone around her and had all of the classic symptoms of Alzheimer’s.
In her consultation I was able to make recommendations to her son, for specific supplementations and activities for her. Her son agreed to make these available to her each day.
Within two weeks his mother’s disorientation had cleared, she was recognizing people and communicating well. Within a month she had left the nursing facility and later moved to a condo near her son. She became the shuffleboard champion of her condo community, lived four very happy years and passed on quietly in her sleep. The joy, love and connection experienced by both mother and son during this experience, was an extraordinary healing opportunity for both.
