Alzheimer’s is ranked as our #1 fear. Discover the secrets to a fully oxygenated brain! Chronic stress, environmental and internal toxins, free radicals, poor nutrition, deficient oxygen levels in the blood, hypoglycemia and other contributing factors result in a vicious cycle in the brain, leaving us in a paradigm of fear, competition and survival of the fittest. On the other end of the spectrum we have the ability to attain enlightenment through brain synergy or pre-frontal cortex activity. Eating whole foods coupled with a moderate exercise program may well be the foundation to allow higher brain function to occur. Learn which foods are butchering the brain and which foods, preparation styles, supplements and lifestyle choices can positively impact our brain function. Learn to think faster, have a laser like focus, a crystal clear memory, mental acuity and peace of mind!
In this unique workshop, Bettina Zumdick and Alex Jack combine scientific evidence with an energetic understanding of foods and the body to give you the essential tools to help support and improve intellect and brain function. This holistic body-mind experience also includes meditation and exercise classes, providing additional support to enhance nervous functions and development of consciousness.
You will gain an understanding of how foods and lifestyle choices contribute to improving —or worsening—brain function. Learn how to select and prepare foods and meals that help support our brain function, and bodies as a whole, bringing them back into balance, as well as releasing stagnation and blockages. You’ll also discover how to “read” signs of trouble before they begin to manifest through Oriental Diagnosis.
Discover how to use whole foods that contain abundant brain-health nutrients in delicious dishes and natural home remedies. You’ll get short-cuts for making healthy foods fit in a busy lifestyle.
Your brain functions better when you provide it with what it needs!
When I started macrobiotics I was expecting health benefits, but not that I would also have more mental clarity—but that’s exactly what happened! I noticed that my thinking was less ‘fuzzy’ and slow—more sharp and quick. As a person who values intellect and is a busy business professional, this has been very important in my life and career.—Meredith Dykstra
