Have you ever felt like you just can’t remember a word or where you put the keys? Or that sometimes when you are dealing with a hard problem you “just can’t think”? I can’t count the number of patients I have had that have “brain fog” on their intake form, or the number of students that ask me “what can I do to remember all of this material!?”. The good news is, there is usually a common cause to these problems, and a way to improve memory: diet.
Memory is becoming more important all the time, thankfully there are a million different courses and workshops on how to learn faster and remember more. For the most part, these are all very valuable and work, however my experience in clinic and as an educator has been that there is much more to the topic of memory then mnemonic memory techniques and the memory palace.
The first place I always start is with the diet. No matter if you are finding that your memory is slowly getting worse, or you want to boost an already keen mind, diet can make a difference. This course takes you step by step through what nutritional factors could be the culprit in brain fog and mental cloudiness. We then explore what foods and herbs can be added safely to your diet to help improve mental performance.
We will cover all the main herbs and supplements like Ginkgo Biloba, Lions Mane and Bacopa, to name just a few and some other essential nutrients like Omega 3 and Pro-biotics. Then we will dive into the real heavy hitters like lions’ mane, MCT and caffeine.
I will also be discussing and reviewing many of the common nootropic “stacks” and talk about the pros and cons.
As a bonus, I will go through a few other activities you can do to sharpen your brain and think faster. The best part: a keener mind is only the start. After adding these superfoods and herbs to your diet, while removing the brain busters, you will have more endurance, have an increased immune system, feel and look younger, and feel stronger
Lets take a step back and make sure the knowledge is setting in. Answer a few multiple choice questions to see where you are at.
I am a practicing Doctor of Tradition Chinese Medicine and Integrative Medicine. My practice has been tremendously gratifying, and through it I have had the opportunity to work with many people helping them heal, body mind and spirit. Through my practice, I soon discovered my true passion however: teaching. I have been teaching in the classroom for the last five years, and have been told by students and colleagues alike that it is my purpose. The focus of my lectures has been Psychology, Personal Growth, Nutrition and Orthopedic Assessment. My passion however is in self-development of any kind. I am a true believer in becoming the best version of yourself. I see Udemy as the perfect platform to bring my lessons to more people.
Between my clinical practice and teaching experience, I have gained a wealth of knowledge in the world of Health and Wellness, but I offer more than that.
