Shockingly simple way to build more brain cells and become more lucid, thoughtful, and sharp…
The Columbian drug smuggler with a 12-inch penis…
When I first met him, I didn’t know he was a drug smuggler…
But it was hard to miss the huge bulging outline in his pants…
At first, I thought he was just the luckiest man alive to be born so well endowed, but then he told me his secret…
And the secret involves an old herb lady and some simple, 3-minute exercises…
Multiply Your Brain Cells – Alzheimer’s Is Impossible
Your body is a complex system. Not just a collection of parts.
Imagine what would happen if someone took the brakes out of your car.
You’d be driving down a hill and there would be a stop sign, but you would just go blasting through it.
No brakes. No stopping.
Cars can function without a cup holder, but not without a fuel injector.
And a lot of the parts of your body work the same way.
New research reveals – the brain-body connection that Eastern medicine talks about is quite real.
And it’s showing us that if you don’t take care of your body, your brain and neurological health will suffer as well.
Exercise is good for more than helping with depression and creating abs…
We’ve known for a long time that exercise is just as good for treating depression as most depression meds are.
And that is a good thing…
Because depression meds – especially SSRIs – are addictive and can cause some wacky side effects.
But that’s for another article. Let’s get back to the subject of the brain-body connection.
Remember that song “the foot bone’s connected to the ankle bone”?
Well, it turns out that the leg muscles are connected to the brain and to brain health in ways that have really surprised scientists.
Heck, it surprised me!
“Groundbreaking research shows that neurological health depends as much on signals sent by the body’s large leg muscles to the brain as it does on directives from the brain to the muscles.”
Not using your muscles enough degrades your brain.
Most of the time, the paradigm is that the brain controls the body.
But, it turns out that yoga practitioners and new-age gurus might be onto something when they talk about the brain-body connection.
Because when you can’t or don’t USE your body as it’s supposed to be used, your body chemistry is altered at the cellular level.
And it’s not pretty.
“Our study supports the notion that people who are unable to do load-bearing exercises – such as patients who are bed-ridden, or even astronauts on extended travel – not only lose muscle mass, but their body chemistry is altered at the cellular level and even their nervous system is adversely impacted.”
This study was done with mice, but similar effects have been observed in humans.
This just tells us what is probably going on when we see cognitive decline in people who can’t or won’t use their muscles.
And the details sound a little bit CRAZY.
When you stop using your legs for walking, running, and jumping – and you sit around too much – you limit the production of your neural stem cells (the ones that renew your brain) by up to 70%.
“Limiting physical activity decreased the number of neural stem cells by 70 percent compared to a control group of mice, which were allowed to roam.”
Weight-bearing exercise seems to be the key.
When it comes to getting the most out of this brain-body connection, it seems that weight-bearing exercise is absolutely critical.
“The research shows that using the legs – particularly in weight-bearing exercise – sends signals to the brain that are vital for the production of healthy neural cells, essential for the brain and nervous system.”
You might already know this, but when it comes to legs, most people actually do weight-bearing exercise on a regular basis – walking.
If you’re unable to walk, consult with a physical therapist on how to get the same benefits.
They can help you design a program that will work for you.
If you are able to walk, then start walking.
Even if you can only walk 5 minutes at a time right now, just doing that amount can help keep your brain functioning at peak efficiency.
Increase a bit at a time until you get up to about 30 minutes a day.
It turns out the yogis were right…
The brain-body connection can keep your brain healthy and young – and all you have to do is walk!
The Brain-Penile Connection
When a man’s not getting erections anymore, it is often because the brain-penis connection is bad…
Sometimes there is little feeling at all… or sometimes it just doesn’t feel as good as it used to feel.
Scientists call this the brain-penile connection and it’s the key to getting long-lasting erections whenever you want.
