Creating a Happy Brain

Many suffer with anxiety, depression, fatigue, Brain Fog, post-concussion brain injuries, or neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimers, Parkinson’s, and Multiple Sclerosis.  Others suffer with attention deficit problems, hyperactivity, or autism symptoms.

Is there hope for improvements?

In our experience, the answer is usually “yes” as long as we work to “Solve the Puzzle” of why your brain is suffering.

The science of neuroplasticity tells us that our neurons (brain cells) can change (plasticity) more than we imagine.  This means our brain can rewire even after a stroke or brain injury to take over the functions of the damaged areas in ways that can sometime seem miraculous. After years of abuse, neglect, and suffering, our brain has a remarkable ability to heal and change.

What does our brain need to rewire and heal?

E.S.E.

Energy – we need our mitochondria to work really well to power the rewiring miracle of neuroplasticity.  We have tools like healing lasers, frequency specific microcurrent, pulsed magnetic field therapy and a host of nutraceutical supplements to recharge our neurons and body.

Stimulation – we need activation of critical brain control centers – especially the parasympathetic controls centers located in our brain stem to dial back our stress response and turn on:

  1. Healing and Repair
  2. Calm and Peaceful
  3. Digestion and Detox
  4. Reduced inflammation
  5. Mitochondrial repair and regeneration

We use tools like unilateral spinal neurologic adjusting, Vagal stimulation therapies, and brain activation therapies.

Exercise – since neurons that fire together, wire together, we must use these new brain circuits we are creating or we lose them.  Vagal stimulation exercises, Neuromodulation therapies, and sensory stimulation therapies can have especially powerful benefits.

In short, we need to “Solve the Puzzle” of why your brain is suffering to help create a “Happy Brain”

A consult or Foundation Visit is a great way to get started.  Others who want learn even more about their brain start with a Brain Scan.

The Most Complex Network In The Known Universe

We have 5 TRILLION synapses in our brainthe most complex network in the known universe! Each synapse is a small gap at the end of a neuron (nerve cell) that allows a signal to pass from one neuron to the next.

With dementia, we lack the resources (energy, nutritents, ATP, stimulation) to support these synapses, so they begin to wither.


Below are examples of possible symptoms that can occurr if nerve synapses begin to wither. Everyone is different:

  • At 10% loss, we likely notice nothing – our brain compensates
  • Same at 20%
  • At 30%, perhaps we think it is just “aging” even if we are age 45
  • At 40%, more noticeable.  We may develop chronic digestive problems and anxiety/depression and insomnia.
  • At 50% loss, we may be diagnosed with “Mild Cognitive Decline” which is really early dementia.
  • At 60% or speech and hearing decline, our automatic functions start to decline – perhaps high blood pressure, fatigue, and respiratory problems develop.At 70 or 80% loss, we don’t remember our family and friends.
  •  At 70 or 80% loss – we don’t remember our family and friends
  • Beyond – organ systems start to shut down until we eventually die from our Neurodegenerative disease (not pneumonia, COVID, or other)

It is very Important to get a “Cognoscopy” (colonoscopy for the brain) to pick up problems early when they can more easily be helped.

Blood sugar balance and the pathways to help support it – Part 2

Our previous article discussed the First of 3 strategies to support our blood sugar metabolism – the Short Chain Fatty acids.  To read the entire article click here. Today we will be discussing the second pathway – the Insulin Signaling Pathway.

  1. The SCFA Pathway
  2. Insulin Signaling Pathway
  3. AMPK Pathway

 

Insulin Signaling Pathway                       

The Insulin Signaling Pathway is   a biochemical pathway in which insulin improves the transfer of glucose into the cells. When we eat carbohydrates and sugar, the pancreas senses the rise in glucose and releases insulin to help with the transfer of glucose from the bloodstream.

Image from Apex Energetics

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA), chromium, biotin, vanadium, certain mushrooms, berberine and gymnema8 have all shown to affect the insulin receptor function – the “lock” which responds to insulin -“the key”. It works by helping the insulin receptor “lock”  respond better to the insulin “key” and  in turn assists in the entry of glucose into the cells.

Chromium, Vanidium, zinc,9 Alpha Lipoic Acid and magnesium9 to assist in a process that gets the glucose from “storage” in the body to the cell membrane so that the glucose can actually enter the cell. Once it is inside the cell, glucose is then used to either make energy called ATP or get stored as glycogen or fat for later use.

If insulin receptor locks are poorly functioning10, the insulin cannot attach properly or the receptor becomes resistant to insulin. All the communication and signaling process becomes weakened or disrupted.

Without a strong signaling, less glucose enters the cell for energy production.11 Blood glucose continues to rise which results in high blood sugar. Over time, this can create many health problems.

Excess glucose is absorbed by the liver cells12 and stored as glycogen. Once the liver is too full it starts converting the glucose into fatty acids for long term storage as fat. This process requires a lot of energy and can create fatigue after eating. This extra fat can eventually lead to fatty liver, which creates more problems with our metabolism and promote insulin resistance by the liver.

When an individual lives in a world of chronic high blood sugar, inflammation increases and can affect the kidneys, eyes, heart and brain. Thiamine, N-Acetyl Cysteine, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin E and other antioxidants help with this type of inflammation and related oxidative stress.

Key Products we carry at Renovare that support blood sugar balance and Insulin resistance issues:


Magnesium – the mineral that most of us are not getting enough of

It is estimated that over half the population is deficient of magnesium. This may not seem disconcerting unless you understand the magnitude of the impact this little mineral has on our bodies. Did you know that over 600 enzymes require magnesium to work properly and it is the fourth most abundant mineral in our body?

Almost every function of the body utilizes magnesium including supporting a healthy brain, kidney and cardiovascular system. It also is necessary for:

  • Making energy in the mitochondria
  • Feeling relaxed, calm and peaceful
  • Peaceful, restful sleep
  • Formation of bone and protein
  • Nerve and muscle function
  • Regulation of blood pressure
  • Regulation of blood sugar levels
  • Maintaining healthy acid-alkaline balance of body

Major loss and stress as well as alcohol consumption are all major causes of magnesium. Also antibiotics, oral contraceptives, diuretics, certain cancer drugs, some prescription medications, and excess soda and coffee consumption can deplete magnesium.

Some of the most common symptoms of magnesium deficiency may include:

  • Anxiety
  • Poor Stress Tolerance
  • Chronic Fatigue or constant fatigue
  • Muscle Cramps
  • Numbness
  • Nausea
  • Irregular Heartbeat
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Migraines
  • Osteoporosis
  • Serious Asthma
  • Seizures
  • Some mental disorders such as apathy and delirium

Recommended rich sources of magnesium include leafy greens, nuts, seeds, and dried beans. However,eating organic, unprocessed magnesium rich foods is not necessarily enough to increase your magnesium intake. Due to depleted soil, many experts believe supplementation is needed.

Magnesium deficiency is rampant in our society and lending to a sick population. The recommended daily allowance for magnesium is only the amount necessary to prevent disease and  a poor substitute for the greater amounts actually necessary for optimizing wellness.

Magnesium is extremely safe. If you take more than your body can tolerate your body will expel it through your stool.  The exception to this would be end stage renal failure in which it is necessary for a doctor to monitor blood levels carefully.

Some of our favorites magnesium supplements at Renovare include Brain Relax Max and Brain Magnesium Boost Pro. You can purchase these products at : https://brainwellnessaz.com/shop/page/2/ or visit or clinic.

You can also purchase Xymogen products directly online at: Xymogen.com and use referral code: “online”, and “gerhart” as the practitioner.

Science Reveals – We Are as Healthy as our Micribiome! Keys to Good Health!

 

Our Microbiome and Short Chain Fatty Acids (SCFA’s)

In many ways, we are as healthy as our Microbiome. What is the Microbiome?

Our Microbiome is the trillions of bacteria that live mostly in our gut but also on our skin, in our mouth, throat, sinus, and in the urogenital tract.

Some researchers conclude that up to 90 percent of all diseases can be traced in some way back to the health of our gut microbiome. Our microbiome is home to trillions of microbes, diverse bacteria that help govern nearly every function of the human body in some way. The importance of our gut microbiome cannot be overstated: Poor gut health can contribute to leaky gut syndrome and autoimmune diseases and disorders like arthritis, diabetes, dementia, heart disease, and cancer, while our health, fertility and longevity are also highly reliant on the balance of critters living within our intestines. 3000 new strains of bacteria have been discovered so far.

 

 

Human Health = diversity of microbiome = diversity creates immune tolerance

We need Short Chain Fatty Acids (SCFA’s) from diversity of our microbiome. Diversity of plant fibers in our diet boosts SCFA’s production & diversity of microbiome, High amounts of pesticides, antibiotics in meat, dairy, and processed foods harm the microbiome leading to loss of diversity

Americans have the LEAST diverse microbiomes in the world with more autoimmune diseases than all cancer and Cardiovascular combined!

Our Microbiome:

·      We get most of our nutrients from our microbiomes – not from our food or supplements.  B-vitamins, Vitamin K, folic acid made by gut bacteria.

o  Post-biotics are what microbiome produce – eg. SCFA’s

o  Diverse microbiome converts plant foods to powerful anti-carcinogenic enzymes.

o  Declining microbiome diversity predicts loss of function/health as people age

You Can change microbiome in 3 days – eg. Netflix video binge, little sleep, lots of junk food and alchohol

  • Junk Food, lack of veggie fiber
  • Terrible Diet, lack of exercise
  • Stress – poor sleep, too many fright or adrenalin-junkie action movies

The Most exciting is research showing how gut microbiome can create diabetes

o  Lack of diversity of microbiome = extract more energy from food we eat = high blood sugars and weight gain of human host

o   Optimal health with lots of microbiome diversity = microbiome gets first shot at our calories and consumes many of our calories first. Help us manage our energy absorption, blood sugar regulation, and body composition so we stay lean easily.

How Do We Boost Intestinal SCFA’s? I

o  Support a more diverse microbiome to make more SCFA’s

o  Consume more diverse plant food fiber sources (not meat)

o  Celery, bok choi, turnips, kale, beets, brussel spouts, etc.

Benefits of More Microbiome Diversity & Intestinal SCFA’s? I

Signals appetite control

o  Lack of diversity, low SCFA’s = always hungry, never satisfied

o  Increased diversity, higher SCFA’s = satisfied, less hunger – quickly

·      Affects brain function: low diversity tilts us towards anxiety & depression

·      Burns fat more effectively for weight loss

o  Improved insulin resistance – support lean, low body fat

·      Makes tight junction proteins – for gut repair:autoimmune, many food allergies, chem sensitive patients

·      Reduces inflammation in the gut, brain, and body

·      Enhances immune tolerance to food, chemicals, and self – especially important in autoimmune disease, chemical sensitivity, and food allergies

How do We Boost Microflora Diversity & SCFA levels?

o  Eat LOTS of veggies for the fiber. Eat new and different veggies.

o  Try new veggies each visit to the market. Add to a Vitamix/blender and enjoy.

o  Do NOT do juicing – it removes the critically important fiber

o  Mimimize refined sugars and avoid antibiotics and pesticides when possible

Supplementsto boost diversity and SCFA’s:

o  Enterovite – the 3 critical SCFA’s in the proper ratio. Can create benefits 1st day of use for those with low microflora diversity.

o  Trizomal Glutathione – best tool to reduce gut inflammation that damages diversity

o  Apex AD – specific ratio of Vitamin A and D shown to boost immune tolerance
