Nutrition

Dr. Terry Wahls

 M.S. neurologic diseases

Brains having M.S. shrink with time, along with Alzheimer’s and Parkinsons. In all three of these conditions, the mitochondria don’t work very well. Brains are protected using fish oil, creatine, and Co210.

Institute For Functional Medicine – good for common and uncommon neurologic syndrome – brain cell neurology.

We have a billion cells in our bodies with trillions of connections and these nerves must all have a covering of myelin insulation. M.S. damages myelin.

In order to make myelin, your brain needs the following:

·        Vitamin B1 (Thiamine)
·        Vitamin B9 (Folic)
·        Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin)
·        Omega 3 fatty acids
·        Iodine

There are synapses called Neurotransmitters, which requires sulfur and B6

Every cell in your body has mitochondria which manages the energy supply for that cell.

One needs a lot of sulfur, B vitamins and antioxidants for mitochondria to survive.

Get your best nutrients from food.

So design a food plan for your brain and your mitochondria.

Due to eating typical foods, we are starving ourselves and this is why we are in such poor conditions, like our children have smaller brains and crooked teeth, jaws too small.

We become stiff as we age.

Our blood vessels become small and stiff.

One in three children will become diabetic and obese as young adults and they have behavior problems.

To get the proper nutrition for your brain and body, you need the following:

·        3 cups of green leaves
·        3 cups of sulfur rich vegetables
·        3 cups of bright color vegetables
·        Organ meet = liver (grass fed)
·        Seaweed

Green vegetables consist of vitamins B, A, C, K, and minerals

2 types of Kale

3 cups is a dinner plate heaped high.

Vitamin B protects your brain cells and mitochondira.

Vitamin A and C supports your immune cells.

Vitamin K keeps your bones and immune cells healthy.

Minerals are co-factors for 100s of different enzymes in your body.

Having a plate of daily greens will dramatically lower your risk of cataracts and muscular degeneration.

Have more kale, parsley, more cooked greens, and more smoothies, have dehydrated kale which is so delicious.

Have 3 cups of sulfur-rich vegetables each day as your mitochondria need sulfur.

Your liver and kidney needs sulfur to remove toxins from the blood.

Cabbage family = sulfur = broccoli, parsley, brussel sprouts, turnips, radishes, collard, onions, mushrooms, chives, asparagus, kale, and leeks.

Have 3 cups of different colored vegetables which are flavonoids poly phenols that support one’s retina, brain cells, mitochondria, and toxin removal.

Colors = antioxidants. You can get your colors from: beets, carrots, cabbage, peppers, berries, oranges, and peaches.

Omega 3 fatty acids insulate the wiring in the brain. Straight teeth.

Organ meets – supports your mitochondria with vitamins, minerals, and coenzyme Q210; Liver, tongue, gizzard.

Seaweed – iodine and selenium

Your brain needs iodine to remove toxins and metals: mercury.

Iodine lowers your chance of prostate and breast cancer.

80% of Americans have a low iodine level.

Seaweed 1 per week.
