Feeding Your Brain for a Change - 2022 UPDATE - 9th Year (8:30-10:30AM - bring your own coffee/tea and snacks). 

So . . . What’s up? What’s new?  It has been a year since we last discussed feeding the brain for a change. What have we all learned, experienced, and discovered? 
The presenters will share information and updates from some of the latest books, podcasts, research, resources regarding ways to nurture the brain and body to maintain and improve health and brain function.  There will be several new twists as there are major updates in brain nutrition and integrated health care/devices:

Marguerite Lawn  Research on Fasting Benefits for Body and Brain 
Fasting has been shown to boost mood, improve memory, trigger the generation of new neurons, and lower the risk of aging-related cognitive decline. Since many of us are taking more active roles in our own health care, this overview will suggest some important and credible research (awards, current literature, videos) for you to review, and perhaps incorporate, in support of your own health journey.

Hope Hills, PhD.
 Switching to a Carnivore Diet and Measuring Results
This “new” form of the Ketogenic Diet, cutting out all but foods from animals, may really be the oldest human diet. For two months, my husband and I have been eating only beef, fish, pork, chicken, eggs, cheese and water. Eating this way makes fasting easy, as we never get hungry between meals. To enhance our assessment of the value beyond just weight loss, we both have Oura Rings, a great multi-functional scale, and we measure our blood sugar. I will share the basics of the diet, benefits, issues, research and our results on our measures.

Mary Charles Blakebrough – Brainfood??? Limitless, New Language, MIND Diet 
Three ways to 'feed your brain,' no matter your age:
    --  Reading Limitless and following steps to achieving SuperBrain status by using processes & practices found in LIMITLESS Mindset, Motivation, Methods sections
    --  Learning a new language (CANVA)
    --  Using the MIND Diet (combines Mediterranean/DASH diets)

Mindy Schrager – We Inherit More Than Physical DNA
We inherit our emotional DNA from our ancestors up to seven generations back. That, along with our physical DNA, has an influence on our overall well-being. 
Hear how unconscious loyalties, excluded family members, spoken or subconscious phrases we inherit from our families ('money doesn't grow on trees', 'everybody in our family does xyz'), and more, can manifest as illness within the family soul. Consider how these patterns might apply to you. The first step to change is awareness and acknowledging what is.

NOTE 1: Our wonderful producers Debbie Morris and T White are changing missions and Richard Kurth has come to the rescue this month!!!

-- T will still update the Google Doc agendas from California where she is on USAF Reserves orders.
--  SO the Change SIG is now SEARCHING for SOMEONE to HELP WITH ZOOM to:
    -- Handle 4th Friday Zoom details & watch Chat 8:15-10:45 AM Eastern
    -- Do a 30-minute tech check 4th Monday or Tuesday, with speaker(s) & MCB


NOTE 2: Do you have an idea to polish or a presentation to try out? The Change SIG is looking for 2022 speakers (June-July-September).
