Make Your Brain Faster, Smarter and Sharper – in Just Two Weeks

With a few changes to your lifestyle, the performance of your brain can be greatly improved – even making it faster.

“I’m not getting older, I’m getting better!” It’s a saying that you might see on a T-shirt or coffee mug, probably at the birthday party of a man or woman of a certain age.
Well guess what? You can make that hackneyed slogan a reality by taking steps to get your brain working at its full potential even as you age—allowing you to enjoy sustained energy, productivity and clarity, and get more done in less time.

  • The right diet can help provide your body with ketones- molecules that are great for fueling mitochondria.
  • Even small amounts of artificial LED light can change your brain’s timing circuits and energy production.
  • At the end of every shower you take, turn the water to the coldest setting for 30 seconds.

The Three Key Longevity Practices That You’re NOT Doing

The following content is provided by Dr Dan Carlin, the author of The World of Concierge Medicine, who has very kindly agreed to share some tips related to health and longevity. If clients would like a copy of his book, please let us know and we can provide a PDF version.

The three key longevity practices that you’re NOT doing

There are three main longevity practices that most people are not doing: 1) limiting refined carbohydrate intake, 2) increasing the amount of greens and other vegetables in their diet, and 3) most importantly, taking an objective look at their own family history. Each of these is important for its own reasons, but together they help prevent a large number of aging-related diseases.

Limiting refined carbohydrates

I get asked a lot about what types of food are the worst for your health, and my answer is always the same: refined carbohydrates. Quickly digested sugar and white flour damages cells by providing glucose in overabundance and its subsequent rapid metabolism creates excessive free radicals that result in accelerated cellular aging and death.

Increasing vegetable intake (especially green vegetables)

Conversely, I’m also asked a lot about the best foods to eat, and for that question my answer is always green vegetables. Spinach, kale, broccoli, romaine—the darker the green the richer it is in vitamins and minerals, all of which fight the free radicals that damage cells. The fiber in this food is also a natural way to ensure a healthy GI biome.

Knowing your family history and making a plan

Lastly, and most importantly, I encourage everyone to research and learn the specific medical issues that affected your fellow siblings, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. Specifically, you should search for conditions like heart disease, cancer, stroke and early dementia or Parkinsonism. Though this may seem a bit morbid, knowing your family history lays the groundwork for a plan to assess the medical risks that you too may have inherited. Once you have this information, talk with your primary care physician about it. He or she should help you make a plan for how you will assess and prevent the diseases that have afflicted your family in the past. If you can’t get a lot of information on your family or want to take it to the next level, consider getting your genome sequenced. Though we still have a long way to go with understanding the predictive risk potential of the genome, there is enough verified hard science today to make it worthwhile.

Maintaining just these three habits will create a powerful impact on your longevity, and you’ll be far ahead of the health curve. By applying these simple interventions, you can set the stage for a healthy body and brain and vibrant activity for years to come.
