Health improvement and treatment through food

  • Our brains have pathways for neurotransmitters that convey rewards when we eat and have sex. Drugs and certain behaviours like gambling, exciting activities, can give the same rewards.

We can take away the drugs and replace it with food says educational foundation Food for the Brain. So health can be improved and addiction can be helped with food. Research is going on, results are being promoted, but interest is so far low.

Nuts, seeds, nuts,  brown rice, fat fish, meat, have been tested with some promising results. 

So mind what you eat:
