Return to Quality Food   

Returning to Quality Food means Eating and Drinking in a way that supports brain (and whole body) health.

This is a critical  part of the Healthy Brain program (HBp) and the Tinnitus Synergy program.

Oh, yes, there is much we don’t know, but there are principles that have never changed. Those principles and a few simple, measurable goals is how I will help you be certain your body and brain are being nourished well.

Here are the steps to accomplish for success in this area of your life:

  1. Make sure your eating habits closely follow the M.I.N.D. diet. (See the “Return to Quality Food” document.)
  2. Get a blood sugar meter, lancets, and extra test strips. (There are many good brands.  I have linked to one example.)
    • Your fasting blood sugar should be  less than 94 (reference)
    • (Also, your blood test for 3-month bloods sugar, HA1c, done by a laboratory, should be 5.2 or less. (reference)
    • For more information on this, see the section on blood sugar in the “Return to Quality Food” document.
  3. Follow the Healthy Brain supplementation guidelines (Available for those subscribers to the Healthy Brain program.)
