The Yin & Yang of Brain Health

Yesterday I shared a Post on recent research showing what increases brain size (or prevents it’s age-related deterioration). That is the Yang.

Here is research about the invaluable importance of sleep!

Exercise Increases Brain Size

By slowing down deterioration…even in humans!

A Huge Finding

Here is the article about research on Lymphatic vessels in the brain.

We talk a lot about lymph drainage in Tai Chi – in particular there are certain exercises that we do in which we discuss the effect on the dura mater (the covering of the brain where lymph vessels are now known to exit). There are a lot of implications!

What We Know Vs What We Don’t Know

This review of research is a great example of learning something about nature (our brains in this case), that is just enough to realize that everything we know just barely scratches the surface.

Just like I have been saying…

Forgetting is just as important as remembering: science says so!

“… a large and growing body of research…” (on exercise and the brain)

“This extensive review resulted in three main observations. First, the most consistent behavioral effects of acute exercise are improved executive function, enhanced mood, and decreased stress levels. Second, neurophysiological and neurochemical changes that have been reported after acute exercise show that widespread brain areas and brain systems are activated. Third, one of the biggest open questions in this area is the relationship between the central neurochemical changes following acute exercise, that have mainly been described in rodents, and the behavioral changes seen after acute exercise reported in humans. Bridging this gap will be an important area of future study.”

Priority #1 Video (Breathing!)

It is amazing where and from whom you learn the most important stuff: in this case it was while having my teeth cleaned.

What I like about this video is that, first, tai chi is never mentioned one time. And second, all of this wisdom and life-changing advice flows naturally in the learning and practice of… tai chi!

The last thing about this video that makes it priceless is that you are not hearing any of it from me. If you have heard it all from me in the past, perhaps this video will impress upon you the value of the information. If not, please take every word seriously – she makes one technical, little tiny, mistake, but the message is huge and everyone needs to hear it. You especially need to hear it if you plan to deliver via C-section, plan not to breast feed, or plan to feed your baby cow products… or if any of the above happened to you. (I know, you are wondering how and if all of those things are really related. They are.) Enjoy this amazingly important presentation.

Something To Think About

101 Benefits of Exercise.18

Research overwhelmingly shows that regular exercise lowers the risk for many diseases, enhances the functioning of virtually every physiological system in the human body and improves psychological well-being.

18. Can help improve short term memory in older adults. (Something to think about!)

(This might be a good time to think of the “industrial athlete” point of view in the prevention of job-releated injuries.) I have been focused on that here for the past five years: if you are interested search this Blog for related terms.

I will Posting a benefit every day from a list put together by Dr. Dave Phillips, M.D. He is an M.D. from Atlanta, GA who specializes in Sports Medicine. As a former All-American swimmer he knows a few things about exercise. He is also on the JuicePlus+ Health Advisory Board. He is also all over YouTube doing videos on JuicePlus+, exercise, and other health-related topics.

I hope this list of benefits of exercise is of help to you.

$2,112.00 Free JuicePlus+ Products To One Child!!



I received an email the other day from the JuicePlus+ company informing me that one of the kid’s on the JuicePlus+ Children’s Health Study has completed all four years of the study.

What this means is that she has been getting JuicePlus+ every month for four years for free! At roughly $44 per month, that is a savings of $2,112 dollars. I say savings because her parents, who are on the products and enrolled her in the program would have had to pay that amount otherwise. There are over 150,000 participants in this health study.

Think about it. This kids has been eating 17 fruits and vegetables every single day – whole food, plus probiotics and added enzymes. Think about the effect that has had on her developing brain and body – the timing and the importance of that nutrition during that period of growth!!

I am thinking about the effect that this nutritional boost now will have for the rest of her life, but you don’t have to wait long for JuicePlus+ benefits. Here is what happens to these kids after only one year on these products:

56% of these kids take fewer over-the-counter and/or prescription drugs

60% miss fewer days of school

61% eat more fruits and vegetables

66% visit the doctor less

71% drink more water

71% consume less fast food and pop

89% are more aware of their own health

and 96% reap a positive benefit of some kind! (There should be an exclamation point after each of those don’t you think?)

When I talk with adults about the JP+ products I am careful not to give them any expectations of “feeling” anything. Health has a certain feeling alright but I can’t say how it might be expressed for you. Instead, I have them take a look at what happens inside the body when you take JuicePlus+.

When I am talking to the adults about the kids eating JuicePlus+ I usually share this: Miracle At A Wisconsin High School.

And what an amazing company to just give it away free to the kids… they also donate millions of dollars to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, but that’s a different story. (Yeah, I know, an adult does have to pay for their own Order to sponsor that child, but don’t miss the point!)

If you are interested in powerfully impacting a child’s health for the rest of their life, give us a call: 425.348.5207.
