6 Healthy Brain Foods…

6 Foods that Can Help Build and Maintain a Healthy Strong Brain

Did you know that smart nutrition can help you build and maintain a stronger healthier brain? By adding these foods to your diet, you can help your brain heal in some important ways.

Red Meat after Substance Abuse

Red meat might not be recommended in many diets, but when it comes to reversing certain types of damage to the brain, it is a good addition. Beef contains high levels of vitamin B12, which is important for healthy brain function. When you have high levels of B12 in your body, you’re less likely to suffer from brain shrinkage.
Garbanzo Beans

Chickpeas or garbanzo beans are one of the best possible sources of magnesium. Magnesium strengthens brain cell receptor activity, allowing neurochemical messages to smoothly relay information.
The Berry Family

Blackberries, blueberries, and other berry family members are high in the antioxidants that improve memory, thinking, and learning. Relative to other fruits, berries have a low sugar content, which make them some of the healthiest options available. Regular berry consumption will allow the brain to naturally detoxify.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is a superfood with great promise when it comes to brain health. It contains powerful ketones that prevent against aging of the brain. It is a great source of lauric acid, which is often called a “miracle” ingredient due to its many health-promoting properties. In fact, these properties have attracted the attention of researchers, who are now using it to treat diseases like cancer, HIV, dementia, Alzheimer’s, and even the flu virus.
Broccoli

While broccoli might not be a dinnertime favorite, it is known for its brain-boosting properties. It can enhance memory and cognitive thinking, and it is one of the healthiest things you can eat when it comes to brain health. Broccoli is also a great source of vitamin K, which benefits cognitive function.
Nuts

Nuts are a great addition to any brain-healthy diet. They contain healthy fats, which are essential for optimal brain cell health and function. Nuts are also high in fiber, amino acids, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and B-vitamins, while their high zinc content is essential for improving thinking skills and memory.

*Never underestimate the power of a good diet, by simply altering the things that you eat…

*I am NOT a Doctor and have never claimed to be… PLEASE research all the above info yourself if you are unsure about any or all of the above info.

Living With Epilepsy

Living with Epilepsy… “hiding in the shadows”… opening up and talking about living with Epilepsy and stepping out of the shadows… may be very difficult for some.
Because of, fear of judgment…
But know and realize the “online” world might be the best place to do so…???
And you will feel great… just opening up, even just a bit…
Remember… nobody here… is judging you… BECAUSE…

“…WE ARE ALL WALKING IN THE SHOES OF EPILEPSY…”

I… NEVER… get much feedback or comments on my Epilepsy posts… WHY??????… Not sure 🤔🤔🤔
Is this a… “GOOD THING”… or… a “BAD THING”… I have… NO IDEA… ??????

ALL… my Epilepsy posts are from my personal life experiences… I can’t… couldn’t or wouldn’t make this #$%& up…

I guess… WHAT I’M ASKING IS… IF “YOU” LIKE WHAT I’M SAYING OR DOING… “LIKE IT”… or let me know… give me some sort of feedback… it’s NOT that hard… LET ME KNOW… that’s all. THANK YOU 😊

IF YOU… disagree with me… THAT’S AWESOME… because it creates Epilepsy INFO… and more awareness about the topic… 🤔🤔 Educations keys will unlock the doors of life… so lets communicate and walk together.

“…spreading the word is the only way people will hear…”

A text book about Epilepsy will… NEVER… “teach” as much as peoples personal real life experiences, living with Epilepsy dealing with Seizures…

I’m… NOT… wrong on that idea… otherwise… I’m writing words… on a blank sheet… to an empty crowd…

THANKS  dhbepilepsy

Who said What…

Anything that has to do with the brain “rebooting” and trying to get back to “normal” all has to do with…

…After a Seizure and the brain is “rebooting” and the info “overload” is happening; it can be overwhelming, as the brain is resetting back to “normal”…

I think and believe the brain throws out or “pushes to the side” info it feels is NOT important during the “reboot process”.
BUT memory issues for a person can be very upsetting and embarrassing…
I have made these comments before and I’ll make them again. Because it’s very important for my Epilepsy Friends to know and understand that…

-“A” If this happens to you… YOU ARE NOT ALONE…

-“B” I know exactly who you are, I just can’t remember your name… I’ve come out of a Seizure before and did NOT KNOW… my own name… doh!

-“C” I may NOT know my name or your name… in that moment… BECAUSE my memory recall of names is too busy trying to figure out… WHERE THE #$%& AM I… AND… HOW DID I GET HERE…

Sorry to say but your name doesn’t matter in this moment in time… but to those in this moment… (if you can remember this)… FEAR NOT… these memories will return.
And yes… it can be very scary sometimes… but this is why WE say… walk tall… you are stronger than you realize…

Medical Marijuana… & Health

Medical Marijuana for Epilepsy:
Years of RESEARCHING this… has led to these thoughts and my opinions about this topic / issue…

I call “BS” on saying Medical Marijuana (CBDs) should be a last resort for treating Epilepsy / Seizures… if it works and can help… and the few science studies; that are being done, are showing more positives than negatives… then…
WHAT ARE “WE” WAITING FOR… ???

It may not work for everyone, just like ALL drug treatments. Epilepsy has no known cure… WE have not found the “antivirus” for Epilepsy “virus” that causes the brain to keep… “rebooting”.

But Medical Marijuana (CBDs) is worth a try and the very few science studies and the research projects being done; that are being released to the public, ALL appear to be showing & telling the same thing… and that is… far more positives than negatives.
*(And not just for treating Epilepsy)
So why isn’t more serious research etc being done???

Pharmaceutical Drugs are “DRUGS” too my friends… “they” don’t even change the name they are called… “Drugs” and just because a Doctor prescribed them to you does NOT make them any safer… “side-effects”… are side-effects…
ALL Pharmaceutical Drugs have “side-effects” and some of these drugs side-effects sound… WORSE… than the reason why you’re taking the drug in the first place…

The ONLY reason why Marijuana is NOT “legal” and used more Medically, is our Government(s) have NOT figured out how to gain complete control over it, so “they” can make all the $$$ from it’s profits and tax the hell out of it.
If “OUR” Government(s) had control over Marijuana profits… “they’d” legalize it, in the blink of an eye…

THINK LONG AND HARD MY FRIENDS…
*(Research it yourself)

“Medical Marijuana” can no longer be ignored… ALL these people using it… can’t ALL… be liars…
What would they have to gain… other than… their health…

Medical Marijuana:
You want high “CBDs” and low “THC”…
“CBDs” -medical side…
“THC” -is what gets you stoned…

“People” think a child using Medical Marijuana for health issues… is a kid smoken a joint… GET A LIFE people…

THAT’S NOT HOW IT WORKS…

It comes in pill form / edibles / or oils… etc.

Trust me… if your child has a health condition, such as Epilepsy and a plant… “FREE”… from “Mother Earth” could slow down / stop and prevent SEIZURES… what say you then… ???

THINK LONG AND HARD… my friends…
*(Before you respond)
If Marijuana slowed down or stopped the Seizures…
YOU’D ALL BE SINGING A MUCH DIFFERENT SONG…

The plant that heals, is worth a try… and remember… “Mother Earth”… would never intentionally try and hurt or harm you…

This all “sounds” aggressive (for a reason) because… People that don’t know or understand a health condition like Epilepsy (or many other health conditions, of the brain) Most likely will NEVER get it or understand it and will always be against “Medical Marijuana”… because they think it’s “street drugs” and there for… bad.

Only educations keys will unlock these doors of life…

People that are living with Epilepsy and researching it etc know and understand there’s something called “SUDEP” lurking in the shadows…
(SUDEP = Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy)
So having said that!!!…
Treating Epilepsy / Seizures with Medical Marijuana (CBDs) is the least of your worries or concerns… preventing / stopping Seizures has to be #1…

Epilepsy the Journey…

We need to do our best not to judge ourselves… or others. Easier said than done… and it’s hard to do… Most people are fighting a battle we know nothing about…

Remember all the times of stress and fatigue from Epilepsy and Seizures… the seizure “hang-overs” and the “reboot” process…

Dealing with health conditions & issues can be extremely difficult. And 99% of the time, only you know what you are going through… so be kind to yourself and others… because other people can’t see inside your mind.

It can be hard to admit you are struggling and dealing with emotional stress and health issues.

For so many; wearing a fake smile, becomes and feels easier than trying to explain ourselves. And I think most of us don’t want to explain ourself…

And so, you do NOT have to explain your times of trial and suffering to anyone… the people that know and care about you, will always understand.

BUT opening the doors of your mental mindcage… “Epilepsy”… will feel better and relieve the stress of “walking in the shoes of Epilepsy” and there is no reason to walk alone… because… “friends don’t let friends fight alone”… Family & friends will always be there; walking the path alongside you, as the epic journey of life… living with Epilepsy… reveals its self… and shows… It takes a very strong person to walk in the shoes of Epilepsy and you are stronger than you realize.

You always have a choice… life is beautiful my friends… you have to find it… walk tall and remember… you are not alone… if we’re walking together, along this path… in this journey… called life…

“…Epilepsy the Journey…”

The Plant that Heals

Watched a News Program… “Marketplace”… what a BS news story / program this was… “Legalizing Marijuana” this topic & issue is repeatedly talked about… (getting sick of it)…

ALL THESE PEOPLE USING… “MEDICAL MARIJUANA”… for health issues / conditions… can’t ALL be liars… RESEARCH it… “THC” vs “CBDs”… RESEARCH it yourself… don’t let the “MEDIA” (or the Government) tell you what to think or believe…

The “Marketplace” investigator says… “…my 15 year old daughter is smoking weed… is this OK for her growing brain…”

My only thought is… WHY… are you letting your 15 year old child smoke weed in the first place… YOU ARE A IDIOT… nice try… BUT… that doesn’t work…

Do you let your 15 year old daughter drink beer & whiskey and smoke cigarettes too… ??????

Smarten up and get your info straight “Marketplace”… “One Sided” news reports don’t help anyone.

How about “Medical Marijuana”… for health issues… you want high “CBDs”… and low “THC”… that topic… didn’t even come up… NOT ONCE…??????

Guess Pharmaceutical Companies wouldn’t like that… “CBDs” are the medical side… “THC” is what gets you “stoned”…

Research it my friends… the power is at your fingertips… “the Plant that Heals”… NOBODY says it’s the plant that “cures”… because WE all know this doesn’t work…

But… YOU DECIDE… what’s “safer”… a plant FREE from Mother Earth… or a Pharmaceutical Drug… “created by man”…??????

Science & Technology is awesome… SOOOOOO…

…OPEN YOUR MINDS EYES… because Mother Earth still cares about… YOU…

The ONLY reason why Marijuana is NOT “legal” yet… is OUR Government has NOT figured out how to gain complete control over it soo “they” make all the $$$ from it and can tax the hell out of it… just like cigarettes & alcohol…

If “OUR” Government had control over Marijuana profits… “they’d” legalize it, in the blink of an eye…

Oh and… alcohol kills / rots / destroys… far more people than Marijuana ever will… believe what you want friends… Alcohol is poison… And yes DON’T get stoned and drive… that’s a no-brainer…

“Medical Marijuana” can no longer be ignored… all these people using it can’t ALL be liars…”

Medical Marijuana:

You want high “CBDs” and low “THC” RESEARCH IT…!!!

“CBDs” -medical side…

“THC” -is what gets you stoned…

“People” think a child using Medical Marijuana for health issues… is a kid smoken a joint… GET A LIFE people…

THAT’S NOT HOW IT WORKS…

It comes in pill form / edibles / or oils…

Trust me, if your child had Epilepsy and a plant from Mother Earth could slow down / stop and prevent SEIZURES… what say you then… ???

THINK LONG AND HARD my friends…

If Marijuana slowed down or stopped the Seizures… YOU’D BE SINGING A MUCH DIFFERENT SONG…

A plant that heals, is worth a try… and remember… “Mother Earth”… would never intentionally try and hurt you…

Seizure Science…

Things I never open up about or talk about… the… “Seizure Science”… *(this is some of my life experiences and may not be true for you)… For me it’s simply… “Walking in the shoes of Epilepsy”…

For over the past 20 years I’ve been dealing with Epilepsy… I believe I have learnt a lot of strange ways of telling this story and idea… THAT IS…

For the first ten years I was able to hide and not tell anyone about 99% of my Seizures… They always happened when I was alone. I was young & strong and was able to “reboot” and walk away… and NOBODY had to know… I also had this “strange” idea in my head that if I told someone I had a Seizure… I would (for some reason) get in trouble…???

Guess my thinking was… I don’t need or want to bother anyone with my health issues… because even at a younger age I knew… there’s nothing they could do… My brain… simply needs to “reboot”…

But in the last 10 years… it’s slowly been changing… I simply can’t hide my Epilepsy any more… AND… I shouldn’t have to…

BUT… “stigmas & stereotypes” can make a person do funny things and want to shutdown & hide and NOT want to open up or talk about it… it can be VERY hard to live with… I’m NOT “broken”… my brain simply needs to “REBOOT”…

I have gained a complete respect to… other HEALTH ISSUES because of my Epilepsy journey… everyone could be fighting a battle you know nothing about… that’s why it’s so important to NOT judge, what you can’t see or don’t understand…

…WALK TALL MY FRIENDS…

“…Epilepsy will NOT stop me… I know… it will not stop YOU…”… WALK TALL…

My most important point of this post is… DO NOT SHUT DOWN… DO NOT HIDE…

PLEASE… walk tall my friends…

  • WALK TALL… and remember… YOU ARE NOT ALONE… 

The $%$ of Medications

The majority of people on the planet that are unhealthy and suffer from sickness & diseases etc… are poor…!!! Of course they are…

What a BS “stat” this is… WHY… Because the majority (90%) of people on the planet are poor or considered poor… (it’s a very small amount of people with a lot of $$$ when you do the math)

The amount of $$$ you have will decide the healthcare you can have or get… sad but true…

So many… too many people can’t even afford their medication(s)… and that’s messed up and wrong…

Pharmaceutical Companies are the biggest drug dealers on the planet… they’ll make and create drugs for issues no one has ever heard of or needs…  Continue reading “The $%$ of Medications”

Are you where I am…

My main goal for my Epilepsy website and or pages… is ALL about maken NOISE for Epilepsy.

I am NOT trying to teach or tell people what to do… EVERYONES Epilepsy journey is different.

-One idea is… research it, that’s point #1.

-Get in touch with others walking on the same path and compare “notes”… do it “online” and remain anonymous (if you want) stay in your “safe zone” if that’s what works, for you.

-What works for me… may NOT work for you…

-Medical Marijuana is a VERY real treatment for Epilepsy… “RESEARCH IT”… You want high “CBDs” and low “THC”… That’s the medical side of Marijuana.

-DON’T wait for someone to bring you the “medical” answers you seek… because they’ll never come… the answers; you seek, are at your finger tips… RESEARCH IT!!!

I did a First Aid course recently and the section on Epilepsy was sad & pathetic… BUT it’s proof that… even the medical world has no idea… (and that’s OK…)

I like to think, I could help someone else; who has had a Seizure, but their brain “REBOOTING” maybe VERY different than mine…

…it’s a VERY DIFFICULT condition to deal with…

I know when I’m “Rebooting” from a Seizure, my main “fight” is to protect myself… I believe that’s natural human behavior… PROTECT YOURSELF… until the “reboot” has happened…

THANK YOU

“…walking in the shoes of Epilepsy…”

imageedit_14_4039976403NO FEAR… there’s no reason to run… no reason to hide… Educations keys will set kids free from such stigmas & stereotypes of a condition like Epilepsy…

“…NO FEAR…”

-If you try and hide your Seizures/Epilepsy… you will not be open and honest about it; later in life, that simple!!!
You have… NOTHING TO HIDE… your brain “rebooting”… is out of your control.
It’s… NOT YOUR FAULT… Epilepsy is a strange very “misunderstood condition”…

All you kids out there… *(if you see or even read this)… If you get stressed out or upset about Epilepsy & Seizures… Guess what… so do I… DON’T WORRY ABOUT IT… because… It’s outta your control… YOU ARE STRONGER THAN YOU REALIZE… You have to know and remember, it takes a VERY strong person to walk in the “shoes of Epilepsy”… WALK TALL…
