    Great insight about how nutrition is so important to the human body. I am constantly amazed that people don't supplement. With our food having so much less nutrients than they did 50 years ago, it is key to supplement. 

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge! Great post!

      Hi Katrina,

      Yes, I join you in being amazed that people do not supplement. It is so difficult to get adequate nutrients from our regular food supply unless we go to an exceptional amount of trouble. We can get the nutrients we need from the food we eat but it is not easy to do. Supplementation is pretty much necessary for everyone.

      Thanks for commenting.

    Pat, about a week ago I decided it was time to do a general detox, starting with fresh lemon squeezed in hot water first thing each morning, long before my first food.  I also scanned everything else I eat, drink and am exposed to.  I cut out what had crept into my lifestyle.  And, amazingly, just one week later, I can already start to feel the difference.  Our bodies are marvelous  … and SO resilient!  Thanks for explaining how all the different elements are related to our brains.

      Sharon,

      What a great idea to do a general detox! Good for you. It is good for all of us to regularly review the foods that have crept into our diets without us really being aware. Reviewing what is really in our daily diet keeps us more aware of what we eat, drink and expose ourselves to.

      It is amazing what just simple changes can do for our immune system and improve how we feel.

      Keep up your good health!

    Wonderful article Pat! I really appreaciate the list of things we can do avoid having a toxi brain! One of the points really got me because I happen to use a lot of aluminum foil (to cut down on my cleaning when cooking). I will have to cut this habit! Again, thank you!

      Hi Marielle,

      Yes, it is best to not cook with food directly on aluminum foil as the aluminum leaches into the food thus it leaches into your body including your brain. Also stay away from deoderants or antipresperants that have aluminum as an ingredient. It can certainly be a contributing factor to breast cancer.

      Glad you liked the article. Thanks for reading.

      The side effect from taking proper care of one part of your body is wonderful in that it does in fact affect the rest of your body in a positive way… its amazing!

      Hi Diane,

      I’m glad you found my article informative and interesting. My goal is to provide people with the information they need to make informed, healthy decisions about what they eat and what supplements they use. 

      The NeoLife nutritionals are tops. They are the best blend of what nature and science can deliver. We’ve used them for over 28 years and not once found any compromises in quality.

      Wishing you the best of health.

    Fantastic article, Pat. One of my dear realtives had Alzhemier's disease and this article has been very informative. I have not heard the research about aluminum cookware, aluminum foil, or aluminum cans. Very interesting. Thank you, Pat, for keeping us all informed – and on the right path to being healthy!

      Hi Robin,

      If you had a relative with Alzheimer’s you are aware of it’s devestation. It is very difficult for the person as well as their family.

      I’ve been aware of the aluminum thing for years and assumed it was a well known fact so I almost didn’t include it in the list. Now I’m glad I included it. Years ago, about 51 years ago, my husband and I invested in a top of the line set of stainless steel waterless cookware. I have to say it was one of the best investments we made in our future health. We are still using that same set of cookware even though we did have to replace the handles along the way.

      Eat healthy – get all the nutrients you need.

      Hi Veronica,

      That is so great that you eat healthy as possible! That is so important and most people do not. Of course, it is difficult to get all the nutrition you need from your food because our food supply is so depleted of nutrients and most of us are not active enough to eat enough food to fulfill our nutrient need. That is the reason most people will benefit from whole food supplements like NeoLife.

      Stay healthy!

    No I don't, that's for sure. Thanks for the great tips, I can see that I better get more sleep. Also, I love drinking green tea, so I'm glad that's on your list.

      Hi Rhonda,

      I love green tea, also. It is my most popular beverage besides water. Yes, sleep is very important yet many people skimp on it. I even often hear people brag about how early they get up after staying up half the night… not a healthy habit!

      Be healthy!

      Hi Yvonne,

      Yes, the brain is made up of at least 60% fat. Hopefully the right kind of fat and free of toxins. Did you read the blog “Do You Want A Fat Brain?” A shrinking brain is not healthy!

      Always focusing on great health!

    There is nothing more imprtant than a "clean" brain. The problem is, most people don't associate some illnesses and small "diseases" with their not taking care of the brain. In other words, people seem to be more concerned about their weight and their dress size than the health of the brain, becuase you can't "see" what goes wrong in there until it's too late. That's my theory and my two cents, so thanks for this post.

      Hi Cristina,

      Your two cents is worthy of consideration. When people really do what is best for their weight & dress size, they will also be addressing some of the problems with their brain. What is really scary is that a good part of the weight loss fads are really not healthy and therefore can cause problems down the road with their brain function as well as their long term health in general.

      Thanks for your theory and two cents … I love to know what others are thinking about the topics I write about.

      Healthy thoughts sent your way!

      Hi Meryl,

      Yes, it is difficult to keep up with what is good for keeping a healthy brain function. Part of my passion for healthy nutrition includes staying up with what it takes to keep our brains healthy. Feel free to pick my brain (no pun intended) any time.

      Stay well!

      Hi Norma,

      Losing the use of your brain becomes more real as we advance in years. It is especially close to me because I watched as my mom-n-law gradually lost the ability to remember things. Any type of stress, including pain just accelerated the loss. I am seeing some of this in my own mother now as she is battling cancer at the age of 93 1/2. Proper nutrition and staying active play a huge role in brain function.

      Let me know how I can help you wilth any adjustments.

      Blessings, Pat
