The Brain Health Progamme

 

Are you concerned about your risk of brain decline now or in the future?

Perhaps you have noticed brain fog, poor memory, concentration or low mood?

If you answered yes to one or more of the questions above, you are not alone.  Mental health problems affect 1 in 4 adults in any given year with a high proportion of doctors’ visits being for stress related illness.

Your mood, memory and general wellbeing are dependent on brain cells and the production of brain chemicals.  Keeping the brain’s structure in good physical condition is key to improving mood, memory, cognition, focus and concentration.

What is The Brain Health Programme?

​The Brain Health programme is a nutrition and lifestyle coaching programme being delivered by qualified Nutritional Therapists.  It has been designed to optimise cognitive function using a multi-modal approach, through a number of workshops covering topics shown in research as being important for brain health.  The programme includes talks, activities and discussion to show you how to make, and sustain, lifelong food and lifestyle choices to improve brain health.

  • Nutrition for brain health: Poor diet is a significant factor in mental health and other conditions affecting the brain
  • Optimising Gut Health: Poor gut health increases inflammation and this is one of the features of many chronic health condition, including cognitive decline
  • Stress Reduction: Persistently elevated levels of the stress hormone cortisol can kill brain cells and negatively affect brain function
  • Getting a Good Night’s Sleep: During sleep our body cells detoxify and cleanse, and our brain cells are no exception
  • Exercise: Aerobic exercise protects the brain from damage and helps to produce brand new cells within the brain.  Exercise can lift mood and help with stress management
  • Brain Training: Exercising the brain is important as well! Challenging the brain allowas new connections to be created and maintained
