Eating For Brain Health

My son, pay attention to what I say; turn your ear to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to one’s whole body.” (Proverbs 4:20-22)

When I was recently diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment, I struggled with the diagnosis for a short period. Unfortunately, I sustained a concussion in 2009, and my recent diagnosis is a long-term side effect.

Some of the recommendations for my Brain health were to exercise, read, keep blood pressure in check, utilize brain games, quizzes and do crossword to help slow down the progression of cognitive function.

“Do not be anxious about anything but in every situation by prayer and petition with thanksgiving; and present your requests to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard your heart and your mind in Christ Jesus.”

Sister Copeland never fails to send me specific devotions at the right time. A couple of days ago she sent “God will come through for you!” I believe it! Do you? “Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.” (3 John 1:2)

Philippians 4:6-7 is very comforting. I follow physicians’ recommendations because God allow them to attain education, knowledge and experience to care for the temple of the Holy Spirit. However, my spiritual focus is eating more daily biblical food to nourish not only my brain and body, but for my soul which is more important.

  1. The first time that I had medication prescribed to me was because I couldn’t get any sleep without having to get up to go to the bathroom. It was full out misery. The prostrate medicine is helpful. Last month, I called to schedule transportation for my annual doctor appointment and the receptionist said she would schedule a 2-hour space instead of the usual one hour. How can a transportation receptionist possibly know that the doctor will have to keep me for 2 hours instead of 1? Health care is some type of torture experience for me. Anyway, God’s grace is with me as I carry on through Jesus Christ. My music playlist is getting longer after following your blog. Thanks for sharing your testimony in Jesus Christ.

    1. I understand. It was torture when I had appointments everyday with different specialists and physical therapy. Amen, God’s grace is with you as you carry on through Jesus Christ. Have a wonderful weekend and remain safe. I am glad you are enjoying the music videos.

      1. Yes ma’am. an inability to focus, disorganized memory, “brain fog,” fatigue. Forgetting that is more than just age-related. Like getting up to go check something on the calendar five times before “getting it.” Of course, some days are better than others due to stress, amount of sleep or lack thereof.

  2. I know this song so well, Tangie. It was my favourite hymn that we sang at my old church. It’s beautiful, and I love the words. I think I told you, when we first ‘met’, that I was mistreated by my church which meant I could no longer go there. No other churches are near enough to enable me to attend, which is a pity. I do watch the services online from my sister’s wonderful church in Australia, though. I find I connect better with them than I did at my old church. It’s the best I can do under the circumstances.

    I’m glad you are getting some relief from your pain, too. Did you find the steroid injections painful, though? I am fortunate that I don’t suffer much pain; my disability has more of a functional impact on me. Nevertheless, I cope and am happy to be as I am. I am very grateful for life, having nearly lost it in my accident. I’m sorry that you are still suffering the after-effects of your concussion Hopefully, that will improve in time – you are doing all the right things to enable this to happen. Love to you, Tangie xx 🌞💖💕

    1. Ellie, I concur “No other churches are near enough to enable me to attend, which is a pity and grateful for life.” The steroid injections are not painful, and the doctor is usually done before I realize he had started. Sending love and prayers to you, Ellie, and remain safe.
