RECOMMENDATIONS

Some recommendations for you to get the most of this experience doing the Intensive Therapy.

1. Keep practicing MATES keys every day

You will be teaching your brain and body to regulate your nervous system, the more you practice them when you are ok/calm, the more tolerance you develop to manage stress. www.matesprogram.com.au

Before we continue: I am not a doctor or medical professional. If you have any concerns about any of recommendations below, please consult with your doctor. These recommendation are for education and awareness. You are responsible for your own health, so please read about each of them as much as you can, talk to a medical professional, or nutritionist or naturopath, and make your own decision to put one or all of them into practice.

2. Avoid sugar and gluten, soft drinks, energy drinks and alcohol

Sugar and Gluten steals your energy and deplete your gut and brain.

3. Drink organic green tea every morning, to enhance your brain

“A study from the University of San Francisco found that the polyphenols in green tea can boost availability of the important brain substance dopamine in the areas where it’s needed. Dopamine is a signaling substance in brain circuits that are crucial to creating positive mood states. It is involved in transmitting signals of reward and motivation and in helping muscles move smoothly. Dopamine production goes awry in the brains of Parkinson’s patients, leading to the muscle rigidity and tremors associated with the disorder.”

4. Start taking omega3 in the morning (2000mg to 3000mg a day)

“Research is finding that omega-3 fatty acids have several brain-boosting benefits.

  • They improve learning and memory. In studies, children who received omega-3 fatty acid supplements did better in school, score higher on test of learning and memory, and had fewer behavioral problems that their peers who didn’t get the supplement
  • They protect against depression, other mood disorders, and schizophrenia, and improve mood in people who already have depression
  • They fight age-related cognitive decline due to dementia

5. Drink chamomile tea before bed, to calm your stomach and also your nervous system

“Plank says: “The trick is to make sure you are brewing it properly. Use two or three tea bags. Then put a lid on the pot to keep oils in the water — so you get the medicinal effects of the tea.”

Use chamomile cautiously if you are allergic to ragweed (the plants are related). Also, don’t take chamomile tea if you are pregnant or nursing.”

6. Try to sleep before midnight (This might be one of your issues why you are doing the intensive therapy, but try your best to improve your sleep before and during our work)

It is our “unconscious meditation”, so give your body and brain the time to rest and recover from the day.

TIPS

  • PRACTICE MATES AND THE BUTTERFLY HUG especially before bedtime.
  • Don’t watch the news right before going to bed.
  • Avoid coffee in the afternoon and evening.
  • Take a warm bath or soak in a hot tub with Epson Salt for about 15 minutes before bedtime.
  • Take magnesium before before going to bed.

MORE TIPS:

  • Sleep in a location where you will feel most rested and safe. While the bedroom is optimal, it may not be possible to rest there soon after the trauma if you experienced violence in that room.
  • Create an environment in which you can sleep well. It should be safe, quiet, cool and comfortable. While it often helps to sleep in a dark room, if keeping a nightlight on helps bring about a more safe feeling, then consider keeping the room dimly lit. It may also help to have a friend or family member stay in the room, or perhaps in a nearby room, while you are sleeping.
  • Engage in a relaxing, non-alerting activity at bedtime such as reading or listening to music. For some people, soaking in a warm bath or hot tub can be helpful. Avoid activities that are mentally or physically stimulating, including discussion about your violent experience, right before bedtime.
  • Do not eat or drink too much before bedtime and recognize the negative role that alcohol can have on your sleep.
  • Rest when you need to rest. It is common to feel exhausted after a violent trauma, so you may need more rest or to rest differently during this time. Relaxing and resting for brief times throughout the day and taking short naps (15-45 minutes) may help.
  • Go to bed when you feel ready to sleep. Try not to force sleep, which can add to the pressure of wanting to get to sleep. Developing the harmful habit of lying in bed awake for long periods when you want to sleep is counter-productive.

7. Drink a lot of FILTERED WATER, NOT TAP WATER

“Tap Water – Danger in Every Glass

Plain old tap water: It’s easy. It’s convenient and it comes right out of your kitchen faucet. However, as I’m sure you’ve heard, most tap water is contaminated with a host of pollutants that increase your risk of serious health problems.”

8. Read more about Amino Acids.

If you tend to have racing thoughts or obsessive thoughts, lack of concentration or memory, physical or emotional agitation, you could consider taking L-theanine.

Please, read about L-theanine and talk to your doctor, ask him if you can take this supplement.

Read about it and if you decide to try it, you can only order it online: http://www.puritanspride.com.au/l-theanine-200-mg-012881.html , there are many other sites.
