Nutritional Support for the Psychic Mind

Nutritional Support for the Psychic Mind
By Barbara Garcia

Boost your extra sensory power with power foods.

Loss of energy is a common complaint among psychic people as they continually tap their 6th sense on a daily basis. The typical medium will grab a sweet after a session in an effort to regain loss energy. The high concentration levels that the average psychic use in their work requires a strong concentrated dose of brain food.

Throughout my years of psychic service in both field and laboratory settings I have discovered some vital nutritional aids that boost the extra sensory function and stabilize your energy levels. The following list of foods and juice are highly recommended for anyone who wants a little extra support.

• Wheatgrass Juice: The chlorophyll in wheatgrass juice is about 70 percent and is high in oxygen. Your brain functions at optimal levels in a highly oxygenated environment as well as all the organs of your body. It is a known detoxifier and improves your blood sugar levels.

You can purchase wheatgrass flats or grow your own. Your local health food store should have all the information you need. You will also need to invest in a wheatgrass juicer.

Juice bars usually list wheatgrass juice on their menu. A nice convenience for those on the go!

Recommendation: Add one to two ounces per day to your diet.

• Berries: Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, cranberries, and strawberries are all high in brain-boosting benefits and are known to be antioxidant foods.

Recommendation: Keep at least one cup of fresh berries available for snacks between sessions with your clients.

• Avocados: Although avocados are a fatty fruit, it is a monounsaturated fat, which contributes to a healthy blood flow and that equates to a healthier brain.

Recommendation: ½ of an avocado per day will be beneficial and would not add to your weight concerns.

• Nuts and seeds: These are high calorie foods so if you are concerned with your weight don’t overdo them. They are considered high in Vitamin E which supports cognitive levels by reducing decline. Sunflower, sesame, and flax seeds, walnuts, hazelnuts, Brazil nuts, almonds, filberts, cashews, and peanuts all provide beneficial mental nutrition.

Recommendation: I suggest an ounce or two per day to boost your extra sensory function.

• Beans: Our brain depends on glucose for fuel yet cannot store glucose. There are many varieties of beans that stabilize glucose levels. Beans also provide a continuous flow of vital energy, as well as healthy amounts of fiber for the body. Black beans, lima beans, pinto beans, kidney beans, garbanzo beans, and many others are wonderful additions to your diet. Adding to these benefits are foods in the legume family, peas and lentils.

Recommendation: ½ cup of beans and/or legumes to your lunch or dinner on a daily basis.

• Whole Grains: We have all heard how oatmeal, brown rice, and whole-grain breads support cardiovascular health and blood flow in the organ system. The brain is a part of that organ system.

Recommendation: ½ cup of either of these foods per day.

• Dark Chocolate: A delicious treat containing natural stimulants which enhance focus and concentration. It is also a powerful antioxidant and is know to stimulate the production of endorphins that help improve our mood. However, like seeds, nuts, and avocados, dark chocolate should be consumed in moderation.

Recommendation: ½ ounce per day

We all require extra energy in our work if we want to optimize the total integrity and functioning of our extra sensory function. We can obtain more energy through power foods that feed our brain. The above list of foods incorporated into your diet is also important to your overall health.
