Learning (Dis)Ability

Countering Learning Disability

Your brain can use 40 – 60 % of your blood glucose, so a good, healthy diet is essential when supporting the ability to learn.

Avoid MSG, fake foods, processed sugar (and go easy on the good stuff), caffeine, sodas, and refined (table) salt. Eliminate artificial colorings and flavors, pesticides, and other chemicals. Go as “organic” as possible with your food, and your household, too!

A depleted physical and nervous system makes it practically impossible to be in a mind-open, learning-able state. The ability to understand and carry out instruction, attention span, concentration level, and memory can all be improved with a good diet.

Also, the old phrase, “use it or lose it!” definitely applies here. You need to exercise your body AND your mind, according to your abilities, of course.

Read something every day, even if it’s just the “funnies.”

Learn something new every day. You can do actual research, and you can be observant. The smallest child, and maybe most especially, the person you most loathe, has something to teach you.
