Did you know that the main reason for brain disease is inflammation?
Yes the very thing that has also been linked to heart disease, cancer, diabetes and many other chronic health conditions is also related to the demise of the brain
Did you know that there is a large relationship between those with celiac disease (people that cannot handle the protein gluten found in wheat products) and brain diseases such as depression, and ADHD?
The inflammation that is created in the gut from eating gluten in these individuals produces an inflammatory molecule called a cytokine which is damaging to the brain. We know that there are many more people that are sensitive to gluten than actually celiac. There is now vast evidence to say that gluten can cause negative changes in the brain in not only celiac, but also gluten sensitive individuals.
Did you know that the brain can be greatly affected by toxins in our environment?
It is well known and documented that toxins that each and every one of us are exposed to everyday can be linked to poor brain health. Toxic chemicals like PCB, DDE, phthalates and volatile organic compounds have all been proven to be toxic to the neurological system producing symptoms such as fatigue, depression and anxiety. Since the brain is primarily composed of fat, it is a great dumping ground for excess toxicity in the body.
Did you know that one of the main reasons for the increase in cholesterol is not actually saturated fats in the diet, but the consumption of refined carbohydrates and sugars?
High glycemic foods such as refined carbohydrates and sugars will trigger an insulin response which can turn-on the enzyme in the liver that produces the cholesterol.
Did you know that Cholesterol is critical for the Brain?
It has been documented time and time again that those with the lowest cholesterol will have an increased rate of dementia. Did you know that 1/5 of the brain’s weight is actually cholesterol? Cholesterol forms membranes around the cells so that different chemical reactions can take place within the cell. It has been proven that the ability for the brain to form new neural synapses depends on the availability of cholesterol. Cholesterol is also a key component of myelin, which surrounds the nerves and allows for quick transmission of information. Cholesterol also acts as an antioxidant for the brain and protects the brain from the damage caused by free radicals.
Did you know that overtime a diet high in sugars and refined carbohydrates creates an increase in the hormone insulin which creates inflammation?
We know that the root of brain disease is inflammation. We also know that a diet high in sugar or refined carbohydrates spike blood glucose levels which in return cause the release of increased amounts of insulin from the pancreas. Insulin is a pro-inflammatory hormone, and is also one of the hormones at the root of that belly fat found around the middle of our torso.
Did you know that Belly Fat can also trigger Inflammation?
It is well known that the unwanted fat around your middle is actually an endocrine organ capable of releasing hormones such as leptin, insulin and inflammatory hormones. By reducing body fat, we can greatly reduce inflammation in the body.
Did you know that diabetics have a 200% increased chance in developing Alzheimer’s than those without diabetes?
Did you know that the super fuel for the brain is fat?
We have been taught for decades that the fuel for the brain is carbohydrates and we need to eat things that are low in fat to protect our heart and body. The low fat craze has contributed to a multitude of health problems, but especially our obesity and now diabetes epidemic. A primarily fat based diet known as the ketogenic diet, has been used to treat epilepsy since the 1920, and is now being evaluated as a powerful treatment option for neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s, ALS, Alzheimer’s and even autism. If a diet primarily based in fats can be so powerful in helping the diseased brain and neurological system, then surely it will also be very helpful for the prevention of these conditions and also the optimization of brain function.
Did you know that the Vibrant Brain Cleanse will teach you the fundamentals of how to support brain health both during your cleanse and long term?
The exciting part about the body is that it is never too late to make changes that will forever improve your health. When you do any kind of detox, you are primarily influencing your liver and mitochondria which are the energy producing units in the cell. Any toxin in the system will inhibit mitochondrial function, or in laymen’s terms the toxins in our environment will zap your body’s energy. By reducing the toxins that you are exposed to, and by increasing your body’s ability to clear toxins, you are able to cleanse your system and make it a more efficient energy producing machine.
During the cleanse we will focus on what to eat, and what not to eat. We will also coach you on how to move, how to get proper sleep, how to cleanse your home of environmental chemicals, what to add to your daily regime to support your health and how to distress with practices like yoga and meditation.
You have nothing to lose and everything to GAIN!!
Take the leap, and join us in bringing back your VIBRANT BRAIN!!!
