Learning Foods and Nutrition
Keeping a proper diet and getting the right nutrition are important adjuncts to learning, especially when it comes to accelerated learning. In our research, we found there are certain kinds of what we call "learning foods" and there are others that have negative effects on learning. In addition, we found what we feel is the best diet for learning, and we found an excellent nutritional aid that can help us become more clear in our thinking and be more effective learners. Below, we share these with you.
First, Let's Look at Processed Foods and Sugar
I hate to break it to you folks, but foods that contain man-made, processed additives and foods that contain refined sugar can throw the body chemistry out of balance and have a negative effect on accelerated learning.
To benefit most from accelerated learning methods, our mind needs to be at peace and relaxed. Learning foods can go far in helping the body become balanced and making the mind clear.
The "Yin" and "Yang" of Accelerated Learning
The yin/yang traditionally symbolizes the balance of opposing forces that permeates everything. When in balance, there's harmony. When out of balance, we see inharmony and discord. According to dietary and nutrition experts in Japan, the same holds true with the foods we eat. The wrong foods we choose can make us too "yin" or too "yang", throw our body chemistry out of balance and deter the mind's ability to concentrate, focus, take in, store and recall information.
The Best Diet for Accelerated Learning
There is a diet that's based on the philosophy of the yin and yang balance. It's known as the macrobiotic diet and has been popular since about the 1920s in Japan and more recently in the United States.
According to this dietary approach, foods that fall under yin are cold, sweet and passive; yang are hot, salty and aggressive. Intake of foods that fall on the far end of each side of this spectrum can throw your diet (and your body chemistry) out of balance.
So, the key is to prepare foods that stay more in the middle of this yin/yang spectrum. In addition, locally grown whole grains such as barley, fresh vegetables, beans and fish play an important role in the macrobiotic diet. When following this diet, many have felt more balanced and energized. Properly balanced foods can help make accelerated learning techniques more effective and lasting.
To fully understand the philosophy of the macrobiotic diet and learn how to prepare learning foods based on it's guidelines, we recommend reading, Aveline Kushi's Complete Guide to Macrobiotic Cooking: For Health, Harmony, and Peace by Aveline Kushi. (See book below)
The Best Nutrition Product for Accelerated Learning
By far, the most balanced and bio-available nutrient-based product we've found is VIBE Liquid Nutraceutical. Our whole family uses it daily with excellent results. It's available from Eniva Corporation. Only one ounce contains all the nutrition (and more) that the body needs daily and it comes in all-natural formulas for both adults and children. Studies on VIBE show we would have to buy and consume over $800 worth of fruits, grains, protein and vegetables to get the same nutrition found in only one bottle of VIBE!
