OK, today we’re going to be talking about nutrition. If you’re into holistic sources of supporting health, you’re going to loooove today’s video.
Maybe this isn’t something you typically focus on (we often focus on behaviors and emotions with our kids), but it is something important, especially if you have allergies, ADD, ADHD or anxiety in your family.
I am excited to share some powerful information about key nutrients to support brain function, and particularly as it relates to these situations.
We sat down with world-renowned health advocate Peter Greenlaw to discuss the valuable information he shared at the Autism One Conference.
As you learned from Peter Greenlaw in today’s video minerals are an essential part of our body’s nourishment. In fact, some of the specific minerals such as lithium, gold, copper, magnesium, silver, etc. are necessary for the neurotransmitters in our brains to function smoothly.
Think of it like this, minerals are like the spark plugs for your body because you need certain ones in order to make chemical reactions happen so your brain can function. When a person doesn’t have enough minerals it’s just like missing spark plugs in your car. It’s not going to work well.
So, why are a lot of people missing their spark plugs (minerals)? Did you know that our food supply has changed more in the past 20 years than it did in the 200 prior?
In other words, the foods that most people eat today are not the same as what our parents and grandparents ate. This is particularly true for any packaged foods. All you have to do is turn over the box and look at the ingredient label. Notice how many of the ingredients are words you don’t even recognize? We don’t know what those ingredients are and neither does our body.
Minerals are found in soil, so the more whole foods consumed in their natural state a person eats, the more minerals their body receives. Whenever we process foods some of the mineral content is diminished. Therefore eating whole real foods is the first step in providing our brains with the spark plugs they need to function well.
Here is a checklist of foods that are high in minerals:
Legumes, or beans are at the top of the list. Beans also have many other positive effects on your body. Beans are a perfect source of pre-biotic food which is necessary to support health probiotic balance in your gut as well as an incredible source of soluble fiber.

In today’s video, I share what nutrients are essential for supporting brain health. I would like for you to try adding these into your family’s meals.
It could be just the thing that creates a shift around certain challenges you’ve been facing.
P.S. Hey, I get it. Sometimes, it’s really difficult to determine what (specifically) is the thing that’s getting in the way of you implementing what you know you should be doing. Many parents know WHAT to do, but they don’t do it – well, at least until they get insight from me about what’s getting in the way and plan for getting into action. For free.
It all starts with one free conversation to establish where you are in your family’s life now, where you want to be, what’s gotten in the way of getting there, and what strategies you need to take to overcome those obstacles. A plan! Imagine that…;)
Maybe you could benefit from that conversation with me. There’s no charge for it whatsoever, and no icky sales tactics, promise. It’s a goodwill offering on my part. I can help you map out your plan for 2018 and show you how to get there so you implement it fully.
Perhaps you too are unclear about what’s really getting in the way. If so, let’s talk, OK? Here’s where you can find a time that works for your for a free Strategy Call. Enjoy! xo
