NOTE FROM DR ELLENORE

balanced-meal

Dear Patients,

The Meal behind the Mindset

Although your brain is only 2 percent of the weight of your body it consumes 20 percent of the total energy (oxygen) and 65 percent of the glucose – what you eat will directly affect the brain’s ability to function on a significant scale. Your brain has ‘first dibs’ on everything you eat..you can’t just eat whatever you feel like and expect your life to improve if you think good thoughts. Thinking is fundamentally intertwined with our mental and physical health. If you eat while you are emotional, your body does not digest food correctly. If you think right, you will eat right, and if you eat right, you will think right.”

Medical doctor Ellenore’s health note:

“Neuroscience and Nature – a healthy brain is linked to a healthy environment”
– Dr Ellenore Meyer- 

According to Dr Joe Dispenza various clinical trials have proven that being in nature can be of benefit for your brain and nervous system and also in turn your whole body.
2 hours of nature sounds per day can reduce stress hormones up to 800% and activate DNA segments that are responsible for repair and healing in your body.

carbohydrates-to-energy

When the brain produces serotonin, tension is eased.  When it produces dopamine or nor-epinephrine, we tend to think and act more quickly and are generally more alert. Eating carbohydrates alone seems to have a calming effect, while proteins increase alertness.Complex carbohydrates, which raise the level of tryptophan in the brain, have a calming effect

“Did you know that the brain is the body’s number one priority over all other organs for survival? The type of foods we eat impacts the chemical messengers (called neurotransmitters) in the brain.”

Medical Doctor – Ellenore’s Health Note:

Health begins in the bowels

This modern day science fact was already recorded in Ayurvedic healers’ writings 4000 years ago. The bowels contain the body’s best developed defence system. Our intestines contribute more to our immunity than the spleen, bone marrow and lymph system combined. healthy-bowels-movement-best-practices-682x1024
