PURPLE foods, get them in your diet! These phytonutrinets help protect cells from too much stress as well as protect our brains from the same. Did you know there are purple carrots, purple bell peppers, purple cauliflower and purple potatoes?⁠ Phytonutient- PHYTO- Latin for “of the plant” and NUTRIENT – good for you! #resveratrol ⁠ ⁠ Look at Resveratrol. As a popular purple phytonutrient, it is known for promoting healthy aging. It reduces inflammation and helps regulate blood sugar. Generally it is found in the skin of purple plants such as grapes but also is in dark chocolate and blueberries.⁠ ⁠ A few ways to get more purple foods:⁠ • Try purple kale instead or the regular grocery store variety⁠ • Include purple eggplant in your stir fry⁠ • Substitute purple or black rice for white rice⁠ • Add pureed purple carrots to your soup as a base⁠ • Snack on figs or plums but always balanced with a protein or fat like cheese or nut butter⁠ ⁠ #phytonutrients #hydroxystilbenes #procyanidins #cognitivehealth #darkchocolateforyourhealth #vascularhealth #anticancer #eattherainbow #colorofmyplate #shanatatumrd #wellnesscollaborativeofhouston #foodismedicine #urbanharvest #knowyourfarmer #seasonaleating #tastesofsummer #tastehealth ⁠

We all know how good exercise is for the body, but did you know that physical activity boosts creativity, productivity, recollection, and focus?! 🧠💡 Try a quick workout today to jumpstart your week - a few minutes is all you need! . . . . . . . . . . #ghentfitnorfolk #ghentfit #personaltrainer #personaltraining #personaltrainingstudio #healthandwellness #fitness #GFN #getfit #ghent #norfolk #VAbeach #VAisforlovers #workout #fitfam #stayfit #sweat #weightloss #fitnesstips #healthyforlife #instaghent #ghentva #summer #mondaymotivation #productivity #cognitivehealth #wellnesstip #motivationmonday #brainhealth #healthytip
For us, FOCUS makes it so that we don’t need that afternoon coffee. Just water, a cannabis-infused capsule or two, maybe some fruit, and a few uninturupted hours of productivity and flow. 🧠🎨📚 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Mighty on, friend. mv1.vc/mighty ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo by @naturallydelicious420 #balancedmind #mightyliving #bemighty #adaptogens #plantbased #balancequotes #goodvibes #cognitivehealth #highperformancehabits #immunityboost #vibratehigherdaily #healthyself #biohacking #howyouglow #herbals #dietarysupplement #lifeontheedge #liveinthemoment #madeinSF #nootropics #memory #vitamins #minerals ⁣⁣#healthhack #goodvibes #anxietyrelief #plantmedicine #microdose #findyourbalance #livemindfully
Fun fact: Curcumin is the bioactive compound behind turmeric’s incredible anti-inflammatory & healing properties! 🧡 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Curcumin makes up only 2-5% of turmeric, so unless you’re eating delicious curries and golden milk five days a week, you may not be benefiting from this powerful root! Fortunately, for those of us who don’t consume turmeric as a staple, curcumin can be extracted from turmeric. Our BALANCE formula is packed with beneficial curcumin to help you decrease inflammation and get back into the flow of things. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fun fact, 2: Humans aren’t good at absorbing curcumin. When consumed on its own, this compound just passes through the body without getting absorbed into our bloodstream, meaning we miss out on any potential health benefits. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A solution? Peperine, a bioactive compound found in black pepper. When these two substances are combined, the curcumin absorbs into the bloodstream at a much higher rate. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Consuming curcumin on a regular basis is thought to have a number of health benefits. Scientists continue to study curcumin, as it shows immense potential as a natural healing remedy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Join our journey on the ground with us before the opportunity ends! mv1.vc/mighty ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #balancedmind #mightyliving #bemighty #adaptogens #plantbased #balancequotes #goodvibes #cognitivehealth #highperformancehabits #immunityboost #vibratehigherdaily #healthyself #biohacking #howyouglow #herbals #dietarysupplement #lifeontheedge #liveinthemoment #madeinSF #nootropics #memory #vitamins #minerals ⁣⁣#healthhack #goodvibes #anxietyrelief #plantmedicine #microdose #findyourbalance #livemindfully
Character is everything. Integrity is a mark. Always have a unique character like salt.

I came across an interesting study today about the relationship between a Paleo diet and higher blood levels of trimethylamine-n-oxide (TMAO), a compound associated with an increased risk of heart disease. . 🧐 Researchers believe that a lack of whole grains, which a Paleo diet doesn’t allow, may play a role in increasing TMAO. . 😯 TMAO is produced in the gut, and a lack of whole grains may alter gut bacteria in ways that trigger a higher production of this compound. . 🤔 A greater intake of red meat (which includes pork), another common Paleo feature, may also play a role, as red meat provides the precursor compounds to produce TMAO. . 💪What struck me about this study is the parallel I see with performance. I’ve had many clients, including professional athletes and CEOs, who adopted a Paleo diet and struggled. In these cases symptoms included fatigue, poor endurance, irritability, reduced focus, and inadequate recovery. . 🍴In every case, when I recommended adding back gluten free whole grains (like oats and quinoa - appropriately portioned and timed for the individual’s needs), reducing red meat, and trading animal fats like lard for EVOO and avocado, performance dramatically improved. . 🧠 Previous studies have shown that higher TMAO levels are associated with inflammation of blood vessels, which can impede blood flow, and negatively impact physical and mental performance. A 2018 animal study found that elevated TMAO induced brain aging and age‐related cognitive dysfunction. . 🥣 Now, I do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. I offer food sensitivity testing (I’m a certified LEAP therapist), so I don’t believe that everyone should follow the same eating pattern. I strongly believe in personalized nutrition. . 🤓 However, I have also found that unnecessarily eliminating certain plant based foods may shortchange nutrients, throw off balance, and hinder body and brain performance, perhaps via a domino effect that starts in the gut. I look forward to continuing to follow this exciting area of research (to me the gut microbiome is endlessly fascinating!). . 👉 What’s your take on this topic? I’d love to hear about your experience!
One fellow speech student at my current placement did her inservice project last week on The Global Deterioration Scale. “GDS is a rating scale that uses the average of an individual’s scores from the Behavioral Cognitive Rating Scale to classify individuals into different levels of cognitive decline/stages of dementia. The assessment is based on memory function and independence levels with ADLs” (Paul et al., 2001). We use the BCRS on almost every evaluation and should correlate the score to a level on the GDS. Level 1- No cognitive decline Level 2- Very mild cognitive decline Level 3- Mild cognitive decline Level 4- Moderate cognitive decline Level 5- Moderately severe cognitive decline Level 6- Severe cognitive decline Level 7- Very severe cognitive decline • GDS levels line up with Teepa Snow’s GEMS in the Brain Change Model. 🔷💍💚🔶❤️🥚 • Dementia and cognitive decline is often a comorbidity of the admitting diagnosis. Here are communication strategies to help these patients progress in therapy. #dementia #alzheimers #cognitivehealth #livelifetothefullest #occupationaltherapy #subacutecare #ot #rehabilitation #level2fieldwork #fieldwork

Sleeeeeeep. . I have spent a lot of time lately working on simple 10 step sleep plans for patients after being inspired by Matthew Walker’s book, Why We Sleep. . This post by @larabriden sums up some key temperature-sensitive tips for how to get a deeper sleep. . . “A hot bath or shower taken at the right biological time (1-2 hours before bedtime) will drop your core body temperature and aid the natural circadian process of falling asleep and staying asleep. . That's been known for a while, but was recently confirmed in a new systematic review study about bathing and sleep. . Of course, there are other ways to maintain a healthy circadian rhythm including: - going outside in the morning to get some bright light - eating protein meals at regular times each day (protein *entrains* circadian rhythm) - blocking blue light at night - sleeping in a cool room - avoiding alcohol” . #circadianrhythm #sleep #insomnia #pms #pmsproblems #womenshealth #womenshealthmatters #hormonehealth #hormones #hormoneimbalance #fatigue #pacing #feelbetter #menopause #takecareofyourself #selfcare #selflove #compassion #rest #goslow #takeiteasy #heal #hotflashes #hormonereplacement #estrogen #cognitivehealth #prevention #womenshealth #healthywomen
It's not unusual to experience cognitive decline as we age, but there are ways to reduce the risk and help our brains perform better. New research finds that engaging in social activities, crafting, playing games, and even computer usage all may reduce the risk of mild cognitive impairment! #brainhealth #computers #healthresearch #cognitivehealth #Kheir4U

•gluten-free/dairy-free• Yesterday I met friends at a gluten free bakery and that got me started down a track in my stories on children that fall on the spectrum, ADHD, autism, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, depression, etc. • • What does gluten and dairy have to do with those conditions? Well, most people here have heard of the concept ‘leaky gut,’ but many don’t know that the same exact structure of the tight junctions in the gut exist in the blood brain barrier! That means if there are things in your gut causing junction damage, they can go systemic and damage the junctions of the brain barrier. This ultimately leads to inflammation, toxicity, and an immune response in your brain. I’ve lectured on the leaky brain and neuroinflammation several times, and I always forget what a foreign concept this is to many who need to understand it! • • If you want a great resource, please read ✔️Gut and Psychology Syndrome for autism, ✔️Grain Brain for the more adult decline issues, ✔️the End of Alzheimer’s for the aging, and ✔️A Mind of Your Own for anxiety and depression. I’ve read them all, the are all different but talk about the SAME underlying principles of neuroinflammation that causes these issues. That’s a huge part of how I treat my patients! Knowledge is power. • • If you want to ask me questions on topics like this, don’t hesitate to drop into my stories and ask questions when I insert the option because these are for you! @kellybroganmd @davidperlmutter #grainbrain #anxiety #depression #alzheimers #parkinsons #neuroinflammation #leakybrain #leakygut #zonulin #guthealth #foodismedicine #functionalmedicine #integrativemedicine #functionalnutrition #cognitivehealth #autism
Load me up with some lovely @odysea_ltd fats 😍 6 things I’ve noticed since being intermittently Keto: 1️⃣ Cravings mostly non-existent; that’s because I don’t eat sugar, which would normally trigger such cravings. When I do have sugar (of any kind) I can’t stop myself! It’s scary! 2️⃣ Inflammation is near to nothing. Before Keto I suffered with IBS, which has dramatically reduced. If I am bloated, it’s self induced (overdoing the almond butter) 😜. 3️⃣ My body keeps going for longer. No crashes of energy, sudden fatigue or need of nap. I also smash my workouts 💪🏼. 4️⃣ Moods are more balanced - eating minimal carbs/sugar won’t cause spikes or dips to insulin & mood. 5️⃣ My thoughts are clear & concise. Ability to focus has also improved. Maybe that’s because the brain is 60% fat min and I’m feeding it what it needs. 6️⃣ The weight is staying off. No fluctuations on the scale or in the mirror. I’m not saying Keto is for everyone & will fix all our problems; health is more than the diet. I suggest doing research on the subject just to be informed or if you have interest in cognitive health. If you suffer from anxiety, depression, struggle with weight or diabetes, it could be a solution. There’s some very compelling evidence. Trial if it appeals to you. Keto lunch bossed thanks to @odysea_ltd . Sardines (high omega 3 & calcium) rocket, spinach, avo, @odysea_ltd artichoke, olives, flame peppers & EVOO. #obsessed Good quality EVOO is traceable and should be strong & peppery at the back of your throat. @odysea_ltd#ketolife #cognitivehealth #ibs #guthealth #insolublefibre #lowcarb #essentialfats #satiety #sustainablefood #omega3 #wildfish #mentalhealth #anxiety #depression #brainfood #paleo #keto #cravings #weightloss #healthylifestyle #nutrition #bodypositivity #mediterraneandiet #foodblogger #foodstyling #macronutrients #eattherainbow #monounsaturatedfat
