Overcoming 5 Dietary Traps

Good Morning!

I read this article this morning while having my breakfast, and was a bit shocked as I read through about some of the dangerous 'addictive' things that we eat that over stimulate our brains. I have listened to all of Dr.Boers C/D collections and he is knowledgeable and very thorough.  

I though I would share with you this small piece of the article to get you thinking, and if you are interested, click the link below to read more!

Bad Dietary Practices that Over stimulate the Brain

What should we feed the brain and body? The basic five are these:
  1. Purified drinking water (Waterwise 8800)
  2. Five to ten servings a day of high-nutrient vegetables and fruit—with a predominance of vegetables, taken in whole or blenderized form
  3. Whole grains
  4. Organically raised meats (with very little red meat) and fish from pure waters
  5. Adequate intake of all the vitamins and minerals necessary for health—usually only possible by taking high-quality, high-potency supplements. Studies have documented that even minor deficiencies of certain vitamins and minerals can cause delinquent, disruptive, and even criminal behavior. (Health Master’s Ultimate Multiple Vitamin)

What must we keep out of the brain and body? These are the basic five to avoid:
  1. Large amounts of sugar. Foods that are high in sugar or high glycemic foods that easily convert to sugar can result in reactive hypoglycemia that gets progressively worse over time. Patients are often amazed that their heath issues are completely resolved when they begin to eat a hypoglycemic-controlling diet. Hypoglycemia causes large amounts of glutamate to be released in the brain—and this is a major cause of addictive behavior.
  2. High glycemic foods (white breads, processed carbohydrates, potatoes, corn)
  3. Omega-6 oils (now called N-6 oils), including corn, soybean, safflower, and other vegetable oils. These oils increase brain inflammation. Choose instead cold pressed extra-virgin olive oil and extra-virgin coconut oil.
  4. All additives and food dyes—including MSG, hydrolyzed proteins, and other substances listed later in this report
  5. Alcohol
