Information hits most of us like a tidal wave in our computerized society, leaving many feeling overwhelmed and confused as they try to determine what needs attention. Demands on our time seem to be increasing as well, and the best way to sort through it all is by having mental clarity and focus (and being sure to balance it out with some fun!).
In an effort to support our brain power and focus, many people turn to herbs and brain supplements.
People have been using herbs for both physical and emotional complaints as far back as we can find records. Some have been proven unreliable, but others appear to help our brain activity.

According to Dr. John Douillard (3 Ways to Boost Brain Function), our brains shrink with age. Some of the factors that contribute to this shrinkage are items that are under your control:
Decreasing the amount of sugar and refine carbohydrates in your diet and increasing the amount of B12 and Omega-3 fatty acids – either through food sources or supplementation – could help to reduce this trend.
It is easier to keep your brain healthy than it is to recover from neglect! Whether you choose to support your brain with supplements or food sources, make sure you are giving it all the nutrition that it needs.
Another way to help your brain maintain its fitness is to exercise it regularly.
Have you heard of Heart Rate Variability (HRV)? In order to be at your most healthy, your heart rate needs to work in an expanded range. You know what it means when you flat line! Physical exercise is one way to get or keep your HRV in a healthy range.
Brains are similar in that they are most able to respond to the demands of life if they are exercised through different types of brain waves. Our BrainSpeak programs do just that, using proprietary sound patterns and other techniques. Check out our Brain-Mind Expansion Intensive program and/or find out more about our technology.
