Keeping Your Brain Healthy.iStock_000008183124_ExtraSmall (2)

You may not have thought about it before, but your brain is the central computer that runs your body. When your brain is healthy, your body gets good direction and you have good health. But if your brain gets stressed, your body starts to suffer.

So what can you do to keep your brain healthy?

  1.  Get enough sleep. Sleep gives your brain a chance to recover from the day’s work, to replenish energy and to prepare for the next healthy day.
  2. Eat a brain-healthy diet. Examples of good brain foods are blueberries, avocadoes, nuts and seeds, carrots, spinach, sage, eggs, flax, salmon, curry, broccoli, olives, and of course water. Foods that stress your brain are fried foods, salty foods, fatty foods, sugary foods, processed foods, alcohol and artificial sweeteners.
  3. Do something to de-stress emotionally – examples are exercise, meditation, prayer, breathing, yoga, massage, or any practice that relieves your stress. Make it a regular habit, or include several approaches to keep it interesting.
  4. Get a check-up from a doctor of chiropractic. Latest research shows that chiropractic care reduces brain stress.

When your brain is healthy, your body can regulate and heal itself.

Our patients have but one regret, not seeing us sooner.
