3 things or shockers that can stimulate new brain growth in the hippocampus part of the brain

Do you want to age gracefully?
Boost your levels of glutathione.
Glutathione is known as the body’s “master antioxidant and detoxifier”. Besides neutralizing free radicals, it breaks down highly toxic and damaging compounds, protects and repairs cell membranes and DNA from damage, binds to carcinogens to remove them from the body, participates in immune function and recycles antioxidants.
In order to reap these benefits you have to provide your body with the right starting materials cysteine, glycine and glutamic acid. It is the cysteine that gets depleted quickly.
Five powerful anti-aging foods that can keep these levels up is:
Undenatured grass-fed whey protein isolate
Cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, Brussel sprouts, cauliflower)
Organic pasture-raised eggs (raw in a smoothie is best)
Garlic (Best freshly pressed and left sitting for 5 min to allow healing compounds to form)
Turmeric
Other foods high in glutathione – avocado, watermelon, asparagus, grapefruit, acorn squash, oranges, tomatoes, and cantaloupe.
Besides eating these foods, exercise can boost your glutathione levels.
Finally certain supplements can boost glutathione by supplying co-factors, protecting the liver (your glutathione factory) and recharging antioxidants.
Milk thistle Alpha-Lipoic Acid
N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC) Selenium
Vitamin C

The misunderstanding of Chiropractic

Credit to Dr. Joseph Mercola

Osempic, Mounjaro, Zepbound, Wgovy, Saxenda, Victoza are novel drugs that offer dramatic weight loss. What they may not tell you is that it must be taken for life. Once you stop taking them, the extra weight comes back. In addition there are other effects that can be life threatening. Serious effects include stomach paralysis, pancreatitis and bowel obstructions. In addition there can also be gallbladder problems, kidney problems, serious allergic reactions, increased heart rate, suicidal thoughts and changes in vision. The labels also note nausea, vomiting, and constipation. Patients have been diagnosed with “cyclic vomiting syndrome” which means they involuntarily vomit multiple times a day. Furthermore, people with a history of certain types of hereditary thyroid cancers are warned against taking these medications.
What’s scarier is that these pharmaceutical companies have launced a telehealth platform to connect patients with prescribers, making it easier for patients to get the drugs they think they want. Patients will never hear about the foundational lifestyle changes that might allow them to lose weight without drugs.
The active ingredient in most of these drugs is semaglutide, a glucagon-like peptide receptor agonist (GLP-1). The peptide radically slows the passage of food through your stomach, thereby making you feel fuller longer. The NATURAL way to increase GLP-1 is to colonize your gut with akkermansia muciniphila, a bacterium that naturally secretes a GLP-1. This can be done with pre and probiotics. In addition, by boosting intake of dietary polyphenols such as black tea, red wine grape extract and cranberry extract.
Another NATURAL option is berberine. We have done an article of the week on berberine but just a reminder berberine helps regulate blood sugar and improves insulin sensitivity and gut microbiome diversity that contributes to weight loss. It is “nature’s Ozempic”. A 2022 scientific review found that berberine at an optimal dose of 1 gram per day, reduced insulin levels. Insulin sensitivity and weight loss are strongly associated and when you are sensitive to insulin, you are able to maintain weight loss better. Berberine functions like metformin by activating adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK) which is known as the “metabolic master switch”.
One other tip to for healthy weight naturally is to cut down on linoleic acid (LA) below 5 grams a day. Consuming too much linoleic acid is the primary factor driving the overweight and obesity epidemics.

WHY YOU SHOULD HAVE YOUR SPINE CHECKED

Dr. Charlie Fagenholz
Western medicine blames everything on genetics, for example they will say “your dad had high blood pressure, that’s why you have it”. Eastern medicine blames things on epigenetics. Genetics is what you inherit and epigenetics is what causes your inherited genes to express themselves or not. Take breast cancer for example. If you have the breast cancer genes, western medicine believes that’s all that matters and you will get breast cancer at some point in your life with no way around it unless you are lucky. Epigenetics says that it is toxicity from the environment that CAN turn on your breast cancer gene at some point in life. Genetics is like the loaded gun, and epigenetics are the factors that have to pull the trigger in order for the gun to fire. Eastern medicine is concerned with what those factors are. What are you eating, drinking, thinking? How are you sleeping and moving?
