Stay Connected to Reduce Stress

From eNewsletter 1/25/2023

DID YOU KNOW that there is a way for parents to stay connected to their children and reduce stress at the same time? A survey by the American Heart Association published the following results:

  • Up to 91% of parents report lower levels of stress among their family when they connect regularly over a meal, and doing so helps boost self-esteem and improve social connection, particularly for kids.

  • Overall, most people say they eat alone about half of the time, but 84% of adults wish they could share a meal with others more often.

  • More than half of those surveyed say they are more likely to make healthier food choices when eating with other people but that they have difficulty aligning schedules with their friends or family to do so.

Given that 65% of adults surveyed said they are at least somewhat stressed, and more than a quarter are very or extremely stressed, should you not make a point to try to eat together? For older persons, making an effort to schedule plans with family and friends should be a priority.

Concussion Nutrient Protocol

Steve: We've had numerous requests for nutrients that can aid in concussion recovery recently. I thought I would share them for reference if the unfortunate instance of a concussion occurs for yourself, family, friends, or coworkers. Note: as always, please discuss with a knowledgable health professional first. Nutritional Support Post-Concussion The following macro- and micronutrients can be taken right after a concussion and long-term if necessary. Food

  • Protein helps heal the injury. At least 4 to 6 servings starting within a day of the injury.

Reduce Inflammatory Damage

  • Omega-3 fish oil which provides an essential brain lipid critical for maximal brain health and protection;

  • Bromelain, quercetin, ginger and turmeric, if tolerated;

  • Magnesium is one of the best weapons against delayed brain injury. Plays a vital role for reducing inflammation and elevating the antioxidant glutathione in cells. Low levels of magnesium in the brain have been shown to greatly increase the vulnerability of the brain to injury.

Free Radical Scavenging

  • Glutathione is the game-changing nutrient: Administering glutathione after a concussion can reduce brain-tissue damage by an average of 70 percent. To nutritionally support the glutathione pathway, additional vitamin C, selenium, niacinamide, N-acetyl-L-cysteine and broccoli extract can help.

  • Alpha Lipoic Acid is a broad-spectrum antioxidant that protects both the fatty and water-soluble part of the cells.

Brain Healing and Neuroprotection

  • Choline is critical for brain development.

  • Vitamin D is neuroprotective.

Nervous System Rewiring

  • Zinc is critical for central nervous system health, including the brain.


  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been shown to be a wonderful healing modality above and beyond what is listed above.
