What is Damaging Your Patients Nervous System

What is Damaging Your Patient's Nervous System

By Terry Wahls, MD

The nervous system is highly complex and coordinates sensory information and movement, guiding our experience of the world. Our emotions depend upon our nervous system. So does our ability to think, remember, and reason. Our ability to feel pain, temperature, and touch, to see, hear, taste, and smell, to move and know where we are in space—that all depends on our nervous system, which is wonderfully complex. If you have anxiety, depression, brain fog, or fatigue, your brain is affected. If you have chronic pain, your brain and/or peripheral nerves are likely affected. In this guide, Dr. Terry Wahls explains our nervous system, its key parts, how they work together to create our experience of the world, and how our nervous system can malfunction, leading to a wide variety of symptoms.

Transformational Health Guide Re Vitalize Your Brain

Transformational Health Guide Re-Vitalize Your Brain

By Kenneth Sharlin, MD, MPH, IFMCP

Sleep plays a critical role in digestion, absorption of nutrients, and clearing toxins from the brain. ​ It is important for hormone secretion, memory consolidation, and overall brain health. Eating a plant-based diet with healthy fats, moderate protein intake, and plenty of fiber supports brain health and reduces inflammation. Avoiding processed foods, trans fats, and excessive sugar is important. Exercise is essential for brain health. ​ Cardiovascular exercise improves blood flow to the brain, reduces inflammation, and stimulates the growth of new brain cells. ​ Resistance training helps improve memory, balance, strength, and flexibility. ​ Cognitive activities combined with movement enhance brain function. ​ Recharging and optimizing thoughts is crucial for brain health. ​ Choosing positive thoughts, practicing heart coherence, and focusing on regenerative emotions like gratitude and love can improve mental well-being and reduce stress. ​ Social connection is important for brain health. Loneliness and social isolation can increase inflammation and negatively impact brain function. ​ Connecting with others, engaging in meaningful conversations, joining clubs or classes, and maintaining relationships can improve overall health and well-being.

Learn to Make Dr. Terry Wahls Favorite Ferments

Learn to Make Dr. Terry Wahls' Favorite Ferments

By Terry Wahls, MD

Sharing an appreciation for ferments. The earliest evidence of fermentation dates back 100,000 years. Back then, our ancestors used salt and the naturally occurring lactobacillus to make various forms of fermented vegetables, a practice that has continued for thousands of generations!

I have since discovered a way to make kimchi that does not use a saltwater brine. I make it the same way I make sauerkraut. Red pepper chili flakes, ginger, and garlic create the heat. You can adjust the amounts of those ingredients according to your taste preference and heat tolerance. Kimchi is wonderful as a side. I also add it to soups and stews just before eating, or stir it into a skillet meal just before serving so that the health-promoting bacteria are not killed by cooking. Kimchi also makes a terrific addition to salads. Jackie likes to add kimchi to her
breakfast eggs (she tolerates eggs as do the rest of my family, but for me eggs will trigger face pain).

Change Your Diet Change Your MInd Chapter 3 Why Most Nutrition Guidelines Are Wrong

Change Your Diet, Change Your MInd: Chapter 3: Why Most Nutrition Guidelines Are Wrong

By Georgia Ede, MD

One complete chapter from Dr. Ede’s best-selling comprehensive new book about nutrition and mental health, Change Your Diet, Change Your Mind. This is chapter 3: Why Most Nutrition Headlines Are Wrong. This 21-page chapter gives you an inside look at the hopelessly flawed field of nutrition epidemiology–“the science behind the science” of flip-flopping nutrition headlines and confusing dietary guidelines–so you can see for yourself why so much of what we have been led to believe about brain food is false. Widespread myths about everything from the goodness of whole grains and the cancer-fighting properties of fruits and vegetables to the dangers of red meat and saturated fat all stem from the wholly unscientific guesswork that is nutrition epidemiology. This chapter is full of interesting historical tales, humorous real-life examples of brain food studies, and practical advice about how to easily identify and avoid falling for the flashy food headlines and unwieldy, archaic dietary guidelines that have been misleading us for decades and jeopardizing our good mental and physical health.

Enhancing Motor Function in Multiple Sclerosis

Enhancing Motor Function in Multiple Sclerosis

By Garrett Salpeter

“A Case Series in Individuals with Multiple Sclerosis Using Direct Current Electrical Stimulation to Inhibit Spasticity and Improve Outcomes” is a significant article focused on the application of NeuFit’s Neubie electrical stimulation device in the management and treatment of symptoms in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). This innovative approach leverages the principles of neuromuscular re-education and neuroplasticity, emphasizing the body’s ability to relearn and improve neurological functions through targeted electrical stimulation.

For MS patients, this technology represents a beacon of hope and potential improvement in quality of life. It plays a critical role in assisting MS patients to regain lost functions, enhance strength, and reduce the debilitating effects of spasticity which are commonly associated with multiple sclerosis. The approach is grounded in the science of neuroplasticity, which posits that the brain and nervous system’s adaptability can be directed toward recovery and functional improvement, even in conditions traditionally seen as progressively degenerative. The significance of this article lies in its detailed presentation of patient experiences, clinical methodologies, and the underlying science that supports the use of NeuFit’s technologies in managing neurological conditions. It is particularly valuable for MS patients seeking new, non-invasive options for managing their symptoms, potentially reducing reliance on medications, and improving overall mobility and independence.
