Brain Healthy Nutrition: Important Food and Natural Products

When your brain and your body have in hand all the necessary elements to function well, they feel better, perform better and you are happier! Nutrition is an access key to the state of neuroperformance. Whether to increase the level of concentration or energy, improve mood and sleep quality, science shows us that nutrition makes a difference.

The food guide serves as a reference throughout the country. But to have a powerful brain, diet analysis has to be performed according to more extensive parameters.

I had on two occasions the opportunity to hear the lecture by Dr. Francine Therrien: once as part of our association meeting, the Canadian Association of Chemical Distributors (CACD), and another time in a public lecture, and each time I was impressed by her knowledge, her energy, her professionalism and her ability to communicate her knowledge. Her talk is lively, interactive, and it makes us think seriously about our way of life! Ms. Therrien brings a whole new vision of our mental and physical faculties, and treats us with the latest discoveries, while also suggesting ways to incorporate changes and improvements into our daily lives.
I sincerely believe that this is a gift that one gives to oneself by attending this lecture, and I recommend it to anyone who wants to understand and improve not only their brain capacity, but also their physical health, and lead a better life! You’ll love it!

« The Longueuil Service Centre personnel were fortunate to attend the lecture Well in your head, at best on the job.
People are increasingly aware of their individual responsibility for staying healthy. Fear of aging, lack of resources in the health community may have accelerated this concern. Ms. Therrien’s lecture exactly meets this need. Her audio-visual presentation is interesting; she has an excellent command of the subject and easily makes knowledge accessible. Never making us feel guilty, she offers suggestions to improve our fitness, our way of eating; she presents the risks of diseases associated with bad habits. Our staff really enjoyed the meeting and the availability of Ms. Therrien to answer their questions. We recommend this lecture to all: a step towards health and longevity. »

Reference Letter – Jocelyne Monty

Our brain can sometimes play tricks on us … but it can also make us gifts. The approach used by Neuroperforma brings hope because it reveals that the brain can enhance its capabilities and heal itself, and that, through methods accessible to all.

All of us can benefit from the proposed methods because they can be used to treat or prevent certain mental health problems, but also to maximize the capabilities of the brain and therefore our most valuable human capabilities.

I have a great concern for the cause of mental illness. It has indiscriminately afflicted babies, children, teenagers, women and men of all languages, all races, all social circles for hundreds or even thousands of years.

Despite the knowledge of these facts, despite the breakthrough of information on the topic, today is still today plenty of shame and stigma attached to mental illness. These are present in people who suffer, as well as in the eyes of healthy people.

It is even said that the stigma is stronger for sick persons, because it can lead to a low opinion of themselves. But this attitude is largely influenced by the looks and negative comments towards them. In front of their impotence, they have learned to be silent, to close in on themselves and isolate themselves, so that their life seems still more painful.

Many sick people identify themselves with their disease, while in fact they are momentarily suffering individuals, who, on the other hand, are unique with their talents and knowledge, worthy of love and respect.

The first time I met Francine Therrien, I was impressed by her passion for the cause of mental illness and sincere empathy for those who suffer. I would say that this passion and empathy led her to develop new approaches for both the treatment of mental illness and the optimization of our brain capacity.

Francine presents an “active medicine”, an approach where the customer takes himself in hand with the help of the “coaching” of Francine and of her team. The customer takes concrete steps for his remission or mental discounting, with solutions that deliver results and hopes by promoting love and self-respect.

They say it takes a village to raise a child. I think that to change our understanding of mental illness and our approach towards people suffering from mental health disorders, it takes the whole world and all of us, starting with people like Francine Therrien.

Let us start by treating our patients with as much respect as their illnesses deserve, with empathy for their great suffering, admiration for their efforts to heal themselves. Not to mention love, for that is the treatment of choice for all of us, sick or not!

For those of us who feel fragile, let us try applying the methods presented in the book “Rebuild Your Brain” in order not to have to live all the torments arising from a brain too much deteriorated by the stress of life.

And for those who enjoy a good psychological health, the application of the methods proposed in this book can only enhance your abilities to make your life and the world better.

If everyone took advantage of this humane and effective approach to develop one’s mental potential, when suffering or not from a mental health disorder, we could bring our significant contribution to improving the world we live in, a better brain at a the time.
