Keep Calm - Eat Fat
Recently we've been doing research on fat and their link to neurological diseases. We have found that the lack of good fats (omega-3s) is linked to Alzheimer, Parkinson and dementia.
Cholesterol-lowering drugs not only destroy bad cholesterol, they also destroy good cholesterol. Cholesterol is what our brains are made of! These drugs also interfere with the body's production of vitamin D. It takes cholesterol and sunlight for our bodies to produce vitamin D on their own; by reducing cholesterol, the body is impaired in its natural function.
Other contributors to declining brain function are chemically-extracted cooking oils from plants; GMO corn oil is especially devastating. The only cooking oil we recommend is coconut. Although not good for cooking, cold-pressed olive oil can be used in its cold form. All other oils create inflammation which lead to neurological problems.
When our bodies lack good fats, we crave carbs and sugar. Our brains are nothing but a big chunk of fat and cholesterol and it needs to be nourished, so a lack of good fats starves the brain; at the same time, sugar diminishes brain function by killing brain cells. Any product that has a combination of sugar and gluten is especially damaging. So the equation is really easy: increase good fats, decrease carbs and sugars.
