Common Conditions of the Brain

Contributed by Sis Medina Nance

SCHIZOPHRENIA

 

This is a psychotic and physical disorder characterized by loss of contact with the environment, and by noticeable deterioration in the level of functioning in everyday life. There is a disintegration of personality expressed as disorder of feeling, thought and conduct. This condition has been associated with high copper levels that depress levels of vitamin C and zinc. Prenatal zinc deficiency has been linked with development of this disorder later in life. Possible damage to the Pineal gland, which contains high levels of zinc, is another possible cause. It is also related to excess Dopamine in the brain.

 

Like Autism, Alzheimer’s, ADD, ADHD and other brain maladies, refined carbohydrates or intolerance to Gluten can play a large role. Ridding wheat, bran, rye, oats, restoring digestive function (gluten eats away at the intestinal villi which helps to absorb foods from the intestine into the blood/system) and increasing protein (good easy to digest protein) often greatly improves or stabilizes these conditions. Along with getting the missing needed vitamins, minerals and nutrients and cleansing of the Liver* and Blood. Magnesium deficiencies and hypogylcemia (low blood sugar) are very common in schizophrenia.

 

Vaccinations, are also a culprit, as many have heavy metals like Mercury in them and these heavy metals get in the blood stream and go straight to the Brain & Central Nervous System to disrupt it. It needs to be cleansed out of the system. Other sources of heavy metals are the tap water (mercury, as well as other toxins like fluoride & chlorine), mercury amalgam dental fillings, anti-perspirants, and some cosmetics (lead in lipsticks, etc.) . Let’s face it, we live in a toxic world and we’re being constantly bombarded via the foods, air, environment, water, drugs (legal & illegal), and there’s no getting around it. So we have to do some ‘Prevention’ and ‘Recovery’ work because our Health Care System is ‘Limited’.

 

The great news is that so many disorders that are related to the Brain which is the CPU of the Central Nervous System can be greatly improved and, in many cases, resolved with the right tools and enough time.

These issues are no longer rare, but are now common and there is help. Drugs are not the solution to these issues and are toxic (ALL drugs) to the Liver. Over time, they cause other injuries to the body. Generally speaking, cleansing the blood & liver of metals and impurities, as well as nourishing and rebuilding the systems is the key, along with Nutrition and a few Lifestyle changes.

 

SCHIZOPHRENIA Scans show loss in gray and white matter, the fatty material that makes up the brain. White matter sits deep in the brain, where information travels. Gray matter surrounds it and, among other things, helps the brain process information. [Liquid Flax Seed Oil, Brain Combo*, Magnesium, Ashwagandha, Liquid Trace Minerals, Amino Acids]

 

HOW CONDITIONS CHANGE YOUR BRAIN (Along with some Natural Help and Prevention)

 

MIGRAINES cause faulty wiring in the brain. Certain nerves overreact to triggers, such as stress or bright light. This sets  off a wave of activity, which causes chemicals to narrow blood  vessels in the brain. That brings the headache and other  n symptoms. Over time, chronic migraines might cause to you  lose some gray and white matter.  [Nervine Combo*, Liq Flax Seed Oil, Mg, Feverfew]

 

ALZHEIMER’S: Your brain has cells called neurons which “talk” to each other through chemical and electrical signals, and send messages to the rest of your body. Alzheimer’s disease disrupts this communication. It’s thought that the breakdown comes from a buildup of two proteins, amyloid and tau. Both create tangles that might disrupt messages. [Liquid Flax Seed Oil,

 

Brain Combo*, Magnesium, CoQ10, Turmeric, Vits/Mins, etc.] ADHD symptoms, like inattention and hyperactivity, come from brain imbalances. Research shows there’s less gray and white matter in people with ADHD. Certain areas also take longer to take shape. What’s more, networks of nerve cells work differently.  These networks send signals in the brain, and they play a role in attention and focus.  [Liquid Flax Seed Oil, Brain Combo*, Vits/Mins] DEPRESSION Experts say it lessens activity in some brain areas, including your prefrontal lobes, which are involved with things like reasoning, personality, and judgment. One study found that people who were depressed for more than a decade had about 30% more brain inflammation. This may lead to brain cell loss, which would make memory problems and dementia more likely.  [Liq Flax Seed Oil, Ashwagandha, Vits, Mins, etc.] PTSD: When you go through something traumatic, your brain  triggers a “flight-or-fight” response. Most people recover on  their own, but some get posttraumatic stress disorder. PTSD  causes your amygdala, the part of the brain that controls  emotions, to be overactive. It lowers activity in your prefrontal cortex, a decision-making area. It can also shrink your  hippocampus, which forms memories.  [Liq Flax Seed Oil, Ashwagandha, Mg, Vits, Mins, etc.]

 

A BRAIN ANEURYSM is a weak spot in a blood vessel. It usually balloons or bulges out and fills with blood. They often form on arteries at the base of the brain. Some aneurysms leak or rupture. That causes bleeding in the brain or the area between your brain and its lining. These are hemorrhagic strokes. They can start as  headaches but can lead to nausea, seizures, and death.  [Vitamin E w/Selenium, Capsicum, Magnesium, Gingko Biloba] STROKES happen when blood flow to part of your brain stops.  They cause permanent brain damage, and can lead to death  and disability. Your symptoms will depend on where your stroke happens. If it’s on the left side of the brain, you may have weakness or numbness on the right side of your body, and speaking may be tough as well. If your stroke is on the right side of the  brain, you may have weakness or numbness on your left side.  [Vitamin E w/Selenium, Capsicum, Magnesium, Gingko Biloba]

 

ALCOHOL affects the brain. It can cause blurry vision, slurred  speech, and memory loss. That’s because alcohol kills brain cells. Over time, drinking too much can damage your brain. Research  shows that it can shrink certain parts of your brain, too. Some  experts say that people with alcoholism have a smaller  hippocampus — the area important for learning and memory  than those who don’t drink often. [Liquid Flax Oil, Kudzu]

 

CONCUSIONS or mishaps, such as a car crash or bump to the  head, can cause a concussion. During impact, the brain slides  and bumps into the inside of the skull. This can bruise the brain  and tear nerve tissue. Concussions also shake up the balance of  chemicals in the brain, harming nerve cell function and triggering inflammation. While the brain usually heals on its own, getting multiple concussions may lead to long-lasting damage.

 

BIPOLAR DISORDER: Imbalances of brain neurotransmitters.  These chemicals send messages between brain cells. They play  a role in things like mood, sleep, and memory. For example, too much of a neurotransmitter called noradrenaline can cause mania, while too little sets the stage for depression. [Liquid Flax Seed Oil, Brain Combo*, Ashwagandha, Magnesium, Liquid Trace Minerals, Brain/Nerve Amino Acids]

 

MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS or MS, your immune system attacks the  nerves in your brain and spinal cord. Your body sends white  blood cells to harm the myelin, the layer of insulation around nerves. This causes nerve damage, and disrupts the flow of m information to and from the brain. Over time, scar tissue forms on the nerves and creates lesions. These changes lead to things like numbness, tremors, and vision problems.  [Nervine Combo*, Liquid Flax Seed Oil, Magnesium, Tumeric,  Vitamin E w/Selenium, Amino Acids]

 

MEDITATION: This mind-body practice eases stress and boosts mental health. Now, research reveals that it may actually change your brain. One study found that meditating for 2 months  increased gray matter in parts of the brain that control emotions  and learning. Meditation also strengthens the connection between brain cells. It may also ease inflammation in the brain  and protect against Alzheimer’s disease.  [Practice Being Still, Breathing & Focusing]

 

EXERCISE pumps blood to the brain, which delivers oxygen and nutrients thru the body. It also stimulates the release of proteins that keep brain cells healthy and help grow new ones. Research shows that exercise may grow the areas of your brain that control thinking and memory.  [Walking, Dry Skin Brushing, Rebounding] *Inbox or Call for Brain & Nervine Combinations
