The brain, particularly in growing children, is sensitive to nutrition and needs enough energy to mature properly.
My brain just turned 80 years old. Is it too late to help it? I eat a lot of vegetables especially water based veggies. I have spent over 10 years of seeing different doctors and finally found one that gave me a diagnosis. I see an OT 2 times a week for wrapping my legs and feet. How wonderful it feels to receive help and encouragement instead of another diuretic.
Virginia, it is never “too late”! Experts say keeping your brain active (reading, puzzles, soduku, crosswords, etc), exercise and eating a healthy diet are all good ways to keep your brain healthy. I’m so glad you have found your way to a therapist for your legs.
