One of the main principles¬†I teach in The H.O.P.E. Course¬†that gives a lot of people–well, hope, is to remember that the brain is just an organ. Not “just” an organ, it’s the most amazing and important organ in the body. But sadly, society has such strong¬†stigmas placed on emotional health as if your¬†brain is not just an organ, but that it’s WHO YOU ARE. As if people suffer from¬†anxiety or depression because there’s something wrong with their personality or their true inner self. This is simply not true, and I’m so happy to see this stigma (way too) slowly going away. To remember that the brain is an organ, just like the liver, the heart or the pancreas, frees you¬†from the thought that there’s something wrong with WHO YOU¬†ARE¬†when depression sets in or when anxiety paralyzes you.

Every one of your brain cells¬†performs dozens of important¬†functions, including tons of conscious and subconscious tasks, energy generation, making enzymes and proteins, etc. It even controls the activation and suppression of your DNA.¬† But just like¬†the other organs in your body, your brain needs specific nutrients in plentiful¬†amounts in order to operate at its best. That’s because particular nutrients influence cognition and other brain functions by acting on molecular systems and cellular processes that are vital for maintaining brain function.¬†When the brain doesn’t get¬†enough of what it needs, we start to feel like something’s off.¬†Some experience focus problems or poor memory. For others, it manifests as anxiety and/or depression.¬†

There are simple lifestyle changes and easy-to-adopt natural therapies that can enhance everyone‚Äôs brain, as well as help prevent, treat, and reverse neurological disorders. Good news, this will also help improve your mood, energy, focus, and memory. As you age, you can remain mentally sharp and avoid problems like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.

Participants in¬†The H.O.P.E. Course¬†learn¬†in detail how to give the brain exactly what it needs to function optimally.¬†Is nutrition the only piece of the puzzle? Absolutely not. But it’s a huge¬†one, and once that piece of the puzzle is in place, it makes all the other pieces much more easy to find and put in place.

I have worked one on one with dozens of nutrition clients who have come to me specifically looking for help for their brain, whether it’s for depression, anxiety, focus, memory or¬†overall cognitive function. I have also taught my emotional wellness seminar to thousands of people over the course of the last 3¬†years. And now, I’m excited to be able to reach many more people by turning it into an online course that anyone can take from home.

I’m kicking the course off with a FREE webinar on January 6th. I’ll be covering¬†the¬†3¬†causes of emotional imbalance¬†that no one is talking about.¬†How to access your body’s own natural anti-depressants. And how to eat today for emotional peace tomorrow.

What you put in your mouth has a huge impact on how you feel mentally and emotionally, and I can’t wait to share with you the very specific nutrients your brain needs to thrive… but that most Americans aren’t getting in their diets anymore.¬†Your life circumstances won’t get easier, but your ability to handle everyday stress and¬†connect with joy and love¬†will increase, as well as your energy levels. So you can do more of those things that bring you lasting happiness.¬†When you give the brain exactly what it needs, it tends to self-correct a lot of the things that make us feel irritable, overly stressed, and just “blah.”

Join me on January 6th! Make sure you register now because there are limited virtual-seats on the webinar.
