It’s almost funny when you think about it . . .

Millions of people “forget” to eat right day after day until they can’t recall why it’s important. So, today, let me refresh your brain cells because great health always begins with education.

As you already know, when you love to do something it stops being work and the same applies to education. True discipline comes from loving what you do. If you still aren’t having fun doing whatever you do, then you must be doing something wrong.

People love to eat. From the moment we are born, we hunger for Mama Nature’s milk of life. We are all literally born hungry. The best way to satisfy that hunger is by selecting quality food sources which break down into essential nutrients quickly and easily.

When something is said to be naturally good for you, it is because it provides what your whole brain and gut crave.

How healthy you are depends on how well you are “in tune” with your brain cells and your gut. If you are eating candy bars to satisfy your hunger, you are not listening close enough to what your true “gut feeling” is.

In America, we are used to a reductionist point of view that teaches us that everything is a separate kind of machine.

The flaw in this is that it fails to see the whole picture, that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.

Your brain and gut are a good example of that.

Did you know your digestive system, also called your Enteric Nervous System (ENS), has more neurons than your spinal cord?

That’s why your gut is also known as your second brain. Truth is your gut is nurtured by the same neurotransmitters as your brain, which explains why your gut can upset your brain as easily as your brain can upset your gut.

Leading scientists no longer look at the world with a reductionist viewpoint. They see it as more of a holistic viewpoint.

Your Enteric Nervous System (ENS) is made up of more than 100,000,000 neuron cells tucked safely between the tissue lining from your brain to your throat, throughout your stomach and all the way to the end of your colon and small intestine.

The food you eat is digested down into nutrients in the Enteric Nervous System (ENS), which provide energy for this vast “inner-net” of cells, mirroring your Central Nervous System (CNS).

Your brain and your gut crave high quality food nutrients to maintain health and intelligence, which in turn runs the higher functions such as your healing processes, your immune system and memory.

The rest is used for motor response and other biological operations.

Should you fail to provide a constant supply of quality foods, your brain and gut will stop producing the “feel good” neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, norephinephrine and nitric oxide  – all necessary for life as you’ve come to know it.

We say you have twin brains: the main brain and the little “gutbrain. But, scientifically, it is all one grand symphony, a miraculous concert conducted by the brain’s memory and the rhythm of your heart.

Feed it well . . .

P.S. Remember, all 60,000,000,000 of your cells came from one single cell. When you feed your brain cells, you are holistically feeding all your cells.
