I wanted to touch on a few aspects concerning healing the brain. There are collections of symptoms that, in our day and age, are considered diagnoses (Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Lupus,
Epilepsy), but what we often forget to look for is the root cause. It comes down to detoxing metals and chemicals, ridding the body of immune challenges, and repairing the myelin sheath. If it is an autoimmune condition, we look at gut-restoring supplements to heal the gut lining, improve digestion, and balance the microbiome. However, how can we fully recover if we do not handle our environment, clean it up, and discover the contributing factors that continually bombard the brain?
Do you know how important you are? That’s the question that comes to mind when I work with the women in my practice. 95% of my practice is women. Men, don’t get me wrong, you’re extremely important too. But I think women tend to take care of everyone in their household and sometimes extended family. They are typically holding a career and often juggling 20 plates at the same time. Women often set aside their own needs in order to take care of others.
I encourage you to make the time to cook real food for yourself. Why? Because you are important. You’re worth it. And if you don’t keep yourself healthy with good wholesome food, something will give, and you’ll spiral downward. And at that point, how will you take care of your family or keep the stress level in check?
