The Cortices Technique: Tapping out your Cortices helps the two sides of the brain work together. With regular application of the Cortices technique, you will find that your head may feel less “foggy,” your mental focus may sharpen, or you may just feel more balanced and clearer. Try it out. You can do no harm and the process has the potential to do so much good. Only takes 1 minute. Make it a habit like brushing your teeth. Best results when used every day. After a few months, inner stress levels will normalize.
The BrainSpan* test can assist in concussion resiliency as well. After all, accidents happen. But what if we address it from the inside out by building in protection too.
Adults: provides information on the immune system, neurologic function, sleep and cardiovascular health
Seniors: Provides information on overall brain function, Central Nervous System Activity and Cardiovascular health.
A BrainSpan Assessment gives you the following information:
- Omega-3 Index
- Inflammation Index (reduce pain)
- Trans Fat Index
- Palmitic Acid Index
- Sustained Attention
- Memory Capacity
- Processing Speed
- Cognitive Flexibility (lower your risk of Dementia)
Knowing this information assesses the risk of neurological diseases and provides you with information regarding your overall health and quality of life.
3 Easy Steps and you're on your way to a healthier brain!
- Take the BrainSpan Assessment: A simple patient-administered blood spot test & 15-minute online cognitive assessment.
- Get your science-based Results: Identify nutrient & fatty acid deficiencies that may be affecting your brain health & function.
- Improve your results in as little as 90 days: When your brain works right, your body works right. Start tracking your brain health like you track your heart health.
Nutrition is a huge part of any health regime, including brain health! Typically eating a well-balanced diet which includes a high intake of fruit and vegetables and is low in “bad” fat and sugar can help reduce the risk of cognitive decline.
Diets such as the Mediterranean and DASH may contribute to risk reduction.
Drink plenty of water - Echo water systems; hydrogen enriched, 4 levels for alkaline or acid water:
A number of supplements are associated with improving cognitive function. Consuming a healthy diet is the best way to achieve optimal nutrition, but sometimes it can be difficult getting all the nutrients we need in one day!
There are supplements to boost memory, motivation, creativity, alertness and general cognitive function. If you need help please call me 972-712-0892
