1.  HAVE A HEALTHY AND HEARTY BREAKFAST:  The brain needs sugar to function. Breakfast improves the blood sugar level. Lack of sufficient nutrients could lead to brain degeneration.

2.  AVOID OVER EATING: Overeating hardens the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.

3. AVOID SMOKING OR EVEN EXPOSURE TO SECOND HAND SMOKE: Smoke chemicals are known to cause brain shrinkage and may even lead to Alzheimer disease.

4. AVOID CARBONATED DRINKS AND HIGH SUGAR CONSUMPTION: Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development.

5. LIMIT EXPOSURE TO AIR POLLUTION: The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.

6. SLEEP ADEQUATELY: Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells.

7. GIVE YOUR BRAIN A REST DURING ILLNESS: Working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well as damage the brain.

8. ENGAGE IN STIMULATING THOUGHTS: Thinking is the best way to train our brain. Lack of brain stimulation thoughts or mental exercise may cause brain shrinkage.

9. EXERCISE IN FRESH AIR: A healthy mind needs a healthy body.

10. EXPOSE CHILDREN TO INTELLIGENT CONVERSATIONS AND PEOPLE: Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people. – Eleanor Roosevelt.

By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives. In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
