Have You Tested Your Brain Health lately?


Many of my long-time fans remember that Magnesium was my favourite vitamin supplement. If you do, then you should remember my John Kerry/Mitt Romney moment when I flipped-flopped to liking Omega 3’s more.

Why do I like Omega 3? Omega 3 (Not 1, not 2 but 3) fatty acids are not just anti-inflammatories, but they are un-inflammatory.

Why is inflammation not my friend? Inflammation is the internal process that facilitates disease and symptoms. It is a complicated and multi-step process. Inflammation is caused by injuries and disease, but also what we eat. Mass produced and processed foods all cause inflammation as does Omega 6 and 9 fatty acids. Basically all the foods we Americans love cause inflammation.

Omega 3, Omega 6, Omega 9 what is the difference? If you remember chemistry the number tells us the structure and shape of the molecule; so not all Omegas are created equal. The amazing thing about Omega 3’s anti-inflammatory process is it supports the body’s natural healing ability and is also crucial to brain health. Most of you know this. That’s why you take your fish oil.

How do I know if I am getting enough Omega 3?  Not only do we need to know if you are getting enough Omega 3 but are you taking the right product? Not all fish oils are created equal. Testing can be done to measure three things. Amount of inflammation, how much Omega 3 is in your cells, and brain health. What if I told you I could have your Brain and cellular health tested by a Nobel Prize nominated military scientist?

How do you measure inflammation and brain health? A prick of the finger gives you a wealth of information. Your brain’s health is measured by looking at essential fatty acid bio markers in your blood cells. These fatty acids are considered essential nutrients in the diet because they are a significant component of the cells that make up your central nervous system. Essentially the cells in the nervous system are made from fatty acid in your diet. To have a healthy nervous system your body requires sufficient levels of certain fatty acids (EPA & DHA) in your blood. A healthy nervous system is needed for proper regulation of all your body’s systems. Measuring and tracking your fatty acid levels over time is one of the most important things you can do to protect and optimize the health of your brain and body.

A healthy brain is an efficient brain. Your brain’s connections can become stronger or weaker over time due to many physical, nutritional, or emotional events. When your brain’s connections become stronger, your cognitive performance improves. Likewise, when you experience stress or nervous system interference, your cognitive performance is reduced.

This assessment also tests the capacity and efficiency of your brain. Focus, attention, memory, processing speed is all measured. A nutritional recommendation can be made, and a few changes to diet and supplements and we can improve your brain health.

The assessment is powered by the Brain Resource® International Database, a scientifically and clinically validated tool utilized by a research network of over 350 scientists. Your results show how you rank compared to others your same age.

Testimonials

I have been having severe pain since 2014. I’ve had a full battery of x-rays/MRI done to diagnose my condition [as] severe arthritis. After I was prescribed an injection that I was told would take care of everything, the pain was back, worse than before. Dr. Lee reviewed my x-rays and MRI and set up a treatment plan... After the 1st visit my pain has decreased. I can already feel a big difference.

Before coming to Dr. Lee, my ankle pain would wake me up during the night because of its severity. Dr. Lee has helped alleviate the pain in my ankle. By performing specific exercises twice per week, the pain is non-existent!

I have been a patient of Dr.Lee's for about 10 months now. As a 22 year old, I have been suffering from back pain since I was about 13 years old. The pain increased a few years ago and despite physical therapy performed at other facilities, and pain medications from the doctor I was unable to control the level of discomfort. I found Dr. Lee and have been extremely happy with my results.

I came to Dr. Lee with several aches and pains. I was nervous about receiving chiropractic treatment but Dr. Lee eased my concerns by thoroughly making sure that I was a safe candidate for adjustments... After regular adjustments and Physical Therapy, my knee pain is gone, my elbow pain is gone, my ankle and wrist are improving AND I’m reducing the migraines I used to get too!

I began seeing Dr. Lee after noticing severe tenderness and pain in my left hip region... I was lucky to find Dr. Lee when I did, not only did he help me discover that the pain in my hip was actually related to a mass growing uncontrollably but he also gave me the comfort I’d been searching for with chiropractic. I’d recommend Dr. Lee to anyone who wants to be pain-free!

I have had lower back problems for about 35 years. As I aged, they were getting worse. I also noticed I was over weight. I came to Susquehanna Spine & Rehab because Dr. Lee could address both issues as part of a unified plan. The diet regimen, chiropractic, and personalized exercises worked!

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve had pain in my neck and shoulders... Now that I’m an adult, my pain continues, but Dr. Lee is helping me a lot. I have an appointment twice a week, and I can definitely tell a difference. I use pain management along with the tens unit and physical therapy. All three of these services are working great and I’m definitely feeling better.

I have had back problems for years. I have been to other chiropractors I have even gone to medical doctors no one has been able to make it feel any better. Then I found Dr. Lee I have finally found relief. I am feeling so much better after starting care at Susquehanna Spine & Rehab.

I began seeing Dr. Lee because of a shooting pain I developed in my left heel... After a brief examination, Dr. Lee explained to me that my pain was being caused by Plantar Fasciitis... Shortly after Dr. Lee began treating my heel, I noticed that I was experiencing less and less discomfort. In a few short weeks, I was able to continue my exercise routine and enjoy my daily activities pain-free!

When I came to Susquehanna Spine & Rehab I was very skeptical. After only 2 weeks at Susquehanna Spine and Rehab the severe pain in my neck, shoulder and arm had greatly improved … NO MORE PAIN! I can now sleep through the night without waking up in pain! THANK YOU SUSQUEHANNA SPINE & REHAB!!!

My daughter started falling up the stairs at school and having severe knee pain for no apparent reason... Dr. Lee did a thorough exam and walked us through his entire treatment plan. Every appointment was made at a time convenient to my schedule. Heather has made wonderful progress and is now pain-free. Dr. Lee was always available for questions and kept me well informed of her progress.

I have been to too many chiropractors to count in five different states and this is the best chiropractor I have been to so far.
