Mars Venus Health: Focus Book

Well in my new book, Mars Venus Health: Focus, I talk about natural solutions for brain health, memory, and of course healing ADHD. And what happens is due to our diet, environmental factors, and various other causes that I explore in the book, we get more free radical damage than our brain can handle, which causes inflammation and impairs our memory as well as our impairs ability to regulate dopamine production in the brain. Which the symptom of that is different for every single child. It creates hyperness. So a child who is introverted becomes hyper introverted. A child who is extroverted becomes hyper extroverted. A child who tends to identify more with action and danger becomes hyper action, hyper danger, hyper impulsive without thinking. A child who is creative becomes dreamy, always thinking of something new and different and can't connect with reality. They love to start things but can't finish things. A child who is naturally sensitive, has more emotional reactions to things, they need more validation of their feelings, they become hyper sensitive. They become moody, morose, melancholy. Other children who are more compulsive, they like order and structure, they become OCD, they become hyper compulsive. All the same condition that produces all of these events. Now I learned this because when I turned 50 12 years ago I had Parkinson's. And I found natural solutions to reverse my Parkinson's, and discovered that it took away all my symptoms of ADHD. And that actually ADHD, which is inflammation in the brain, a later stage of inflammation in the brain is Parkinson's, dementia, Alzheimer's, and we see this to be the case now. Now, if you make it to 88 years old, you have a 50% chance, whether you have Alzheimer's or not. This is the fate of Americans today, due to the same condition that's causing ADHD in children. It's affecting adults in different ways. It also affects married couples. The way it shows up as men is the inability to sustain passion or interest in a woman. Attention deficit. If newness is there, he has plenty of attention for her. After a while, he has no attention for her. He runs off to work and other things to stimulate him. She on the other hand, she has hyper - women tend to be givers. So she becomes hyper giver. So she gives to everyone else. Forgets about herself. Feels dissatisfied. And then blames her husband for her dissatisfaction. And he feels like I can't make her happy. So I've seen this hyperness affect all ages and stages of life .And there's one solution to it. The solution to it is to heal the brain. The brain has free radical damage. There's like 14-15 different causes for that. The most amazing cause is just simply over-the-counter pain pills. When you take, particularly Tylenol, over the counter pain pills suppress your liver's ability to make this very important antioxidant that's 1000x more powerful than any antioxidant we can eat. That antioxidant is called glutathione. So what we have is a huge amount of over the counter drugs that inhibit glutathione production. We then crave sugar. Sugar causes high blood sugar. High blood sugar inhibits glutathione production. We have a lot of birthing practice that also impair glutathione production. So what we have is a society now where it's rampant brain inflammation and so now we can find practical solutions. So I wrote a whole book. What's causing it. How to solve the problem. But you have to understand what's causing it. Imagine I give you a pill that will make you feel good. But the reason you don't feel good is you keep hitting yourself over the head with a hammer. If you keep hitting yourself over the head with a hammer even if you feel good it won't work. So we have solutions, but we also have to recognize what we do to cause that condition or what situations in our life cause that condition.
