How to Defeat Your Tired Brain
Too many decisions. Too much pressure at work. Too many personal demands. Too much going on without time to rest and restore. A tired brain (sometimes called mental fatigue) is a brain that is unhealthy and has trouble responding well to life’s needs.
Tired brain occurs when the brain cannot tolerate all that it’s asked to do. When the brain becomes unhealthy, it fails. Bad nutritional decisions are the main cause of a tired brain.
Alzheimer’s, Senility, Dementia…is this Your Fate?
And what if you could get a glimpse into the health status of your brain and other organs? What if you could do something to improve the health of your brain on a cellular level? What if there was a way to get the correct nourishment and avoid the major brain-related disorders facing the aging brain?
Your body is composed of billions of cells. Every cell has a cell wall which protects the insides of the cell. The cell wall is like the walls of your house — it protects and encloses the things inside. The cell wall also has doors that allow food and other substances in and allows waste and other substances out.
If the cell wall and cell doors are perfect, the cell is healthy and it can make new cells that are also healthy. This is the ideal scenario for your body. Unfortunately, most people do not have great cell walls, and because of this, their cells are unhealthy and they are at risk for all kinds of health problems.
All disease is a disturbance at the cellular level. John Hopkins University states that all major alterations that predispose us to disease are at the cellular level. The foundation of all health is cellular health.
So What Can I Do?
We now have a simple blood test that can tell the status of your cell walls! This is quite amazing. The physician who developed this test studied the effect of fatty acids on the performance of soldiers in combat while he was in the Army in Iraq. The results were so impressive that he continued his research after leaving the Army and developed BrainSpan™. The name refers to the lifespan of the brain.
You place a drop of blood on a card which gets mailed to a lab. The lab test assesses the fatty acids that compose the walls of your blood cells. You then go online and do a short series of cognitive tests that measure your thinking skills.
This assessment tells us your risk for health problems and early signs of brain aging and poor brain health. It also tells us if you are producing too many pro-inflammatory chemicals which can lead to significant health problems including autoimmune disorders and heart disease.
Once we have the results we can develop a program to improve any poor scores. If you have some scores that are not in the optimal range, you should be retested in three months to measure your progress. Once you reach the “good” range you retest once a year.
Now it is possible to find out your health status on a cellular level! This is an amazing opportunity to really help you see, for real, how your body is doing and then be able to do something about it.
Who should have this test? Everyone with a brain! Starting the right thing now can slow down the progression of negative mental changes.
Pregnant women, please find out the health of your cells. The baby’s brain and body develop in the womb based on your health. Your baby needs the right food and vitamins to develop correctly. If mom is deficient, the baby is, too.
The BrainSpan test is normally $199 but through August 31, 2018, we are offering the special price of only $89. Call and schedule an appointment for your BrainSpan test today!
