Our bodies are under constant assault from environmental toxins, pollutants in our food supply, pollutants in our water, and toxic additives in our food supply. Collectively they contribute to a state of neurological distress which, in turn, contributes to a state of premature aging of our brains. This is often a precursor to Alzheimer's Disease and Parkinson's Disease. If this were to happen to you, it would be the beginning of the final chapter of your life. And that final chapter would be like staring in your own personal horror movie.

It's a well known fact that there is no cure for these two ailments (from a pharmaceutical standpoint), and there are no cures on the horizon (from a pharmaceutical standpoint).

But for thousands of years, practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine have used Gastrodin to treat a variety of cognitive problems like headaches, vertigo, seizures, and even paralysis. Gastrodin is an extract from the orchid, Gastrodia Elata. It acts as a broad scope brain shield that protects against a variety of circumstances that contribute to age related degeneration of our mental capabilities. Western researchers are slowly finding "new" advantages of Gastrodin supplementation. For example, it possesses regenerative capabilities which allow for the re-balancing of neurotransmitters, improving blood flow, decreasing memory loss, reducing the risk of contracting Parkinson's Disease and Alzheimer's Disease. It also protects brain function during a stroke.

Mainstream medicine's theory regarding brain health is that dormant brain tissue has no chance of regenerating itself. According to their way of thinking, once there is a loss of brain function, there is no chance of a reversal.

New discoveries in molecular science have uncovered some significant facts with regards to the brain's ability to heal itself. It's a well known fact, among holistic advocates, that the body is fully qualified to heal itself. So the brain, the most sophisticated organ in the body, should have no problem accomplishing such a seemingly meager task. Scientists have discovered the brain's ability to regenerate the neurons involved in brain remodeling, commonly known as plasticity. Plasticity is the process where brain cells recognize and reconfigure their connections to form new memory capabilities and promote learning potential.

Advocates of holistic medicine have made some significant discoveries about how Gastrodin possesses the qualities to stimulate the neuro-regenerative process. Research on Gastrodin has confirmed it's ability to mobilize and activate specific aspects of the brain's regenerative capabilities. So it seems as if Gastrodin is capable of activating the brain's regenerative mechanisms potentially preventing loss of brain function at any age or physical condition.

A major cause of brain aging is a reduced volume of blood flow to the area. This causes the brain to experience a low grade of oxygen starvation and suffocation. There is a direct link to reduced blood flow to the brain and impaired memory function. Research on laboratory animals and human subjects indicates Gastrodin has the ability to increase blood flow to the brain.

Memory Loss

A major concern of all of us is will we experience memory loss as we get older ? The thought of not being able to remember the names of loved ones or getting lost in an area you have lived in for years is a cause for genuine concern. Have you ever entered a room and then asked yourself "what did I come in here for ?" then secretly asked yourself "is this the beginning of a memory problem ?" Gastrodin has the ability to potentially prevent or reverse those mental impairments. Potentially allowing you, or a loved one, to retrieve those lost memories storied in your mental "hard drive".


When a person has a stroke, a cataclysmic disruption of blood flow to the brain occurs causing an excess of excitory brain activity. This results in the activation of destructive enzymes and the accumulation of inflammatory cytokines ( substances that, when secreted, have an effect on other cells ) The end result is stroke inflicted brain damage and occurs in an extremely short period of time. That's why stroke victims are encouraged to seek help immediately.

Gastrodin has the unique ability to balance excitory-to-inhibitory neurotransmitter levels, making it therapeutically significant in a stroke situation. Once Gastrodin is metabolized in the body it stimulates the production of an enzyme that restores normal structure to the brain's proteins that were damaged during the stroke.

Those who suffer head trauma, stroke, or undergo heart surgery can accumulate years of brain aging in a very short period of time. Gastrodin, the extract of a Chinese medical orchid, is capable of activating dormant self healing programs hidden deep within your brain. Gastrodin, a major asset from Mother Nature's inventory.

Do not under estimate the importance of brain health. You can have the physical attributes of an Olympic triathlete but all those beautiful muscles will not function efficiently if your brain is not functioning properly. Your brain is "mission control" for your body. Remember "Houston We Have A Problem ?" Who did the astronauts call for help ? The brains of the mission, mission control.

Brain health should be a major concern for all of us, men and women, young and old. But there are some ailments that mostly affect women. I have addressed that issue in my new book titled Health Springs Eternal, A Holistic Approach To Women's Health Issues. This is a book for all women and the men who love them.
