Integrating the Mind and Body

The author explains the connections between the
body and the brain including the effects of fear
and anxiety on health. Certain vitamins like B6
and B12 help to balance blood sugar. Glutathione
recycles antioxidants. Vitamins B6 and B12 also
provide a brain tune-up of sorts. Low levels of
zinc are associated with low levels of immunity.

In some patients, gluten triggers an ugly
autoimmune response. Low Vitamin A and Omega 3
may cause the classic bumps on the back of the
arm due to hyperkeratosis polaris.

The book explains 7 steps to a better you. These are:
o optimize nutrition
o balance hormones
o reduce inflammation
o fix digestion
o detoxify
o boost the metabolism
o reduce stress

The author advises us to protect our head all the
time (avoid head injuries). In addition, quality
sleep is critical to overall health. Classic toxins
are explained ; such as, alcohol, tobacco, caffeine,
sugar and gluten (for some who are intolerant) .
Insulin is said to damage the brain.

The C-reactive protein is a measure of inflammation.
Reduced amounts of Vitamins C, D, Zinc, Omega 3
fatty acids and increased stress can have a
harmful effect on our health. Overall, the presentation
is excellent for health buffs everywhere.
