The body and the mind are so closely attached that when one is affected, it also affect the  other. It is therefore important that we take care of the mind as it affects the health to a far greater degree than we realize.

Medical proof has shown that the risks of many of the diseases from which we suffer are the result of mental depression. Grief, anxiety, discontent, remorse, guilt, distrust, all tend to break down the quality of life.

Today we see many suffering from Alzheimer and from studies conducted it has been shown that brain scans of the region of the brain connected with the memory can detect Alzheimer, also a urine test is able to detect Alzheimer.

There is no doubt that the role of diet plays an important part in the onset of this disease as the lack of B-vitamin folic acid is important in reducing the risk of Alzheimer as it helps to regulate the blood levels homocysteine. High blood pressure and high blood cholesterol are also a contributor and therefore for many who find it difficult to eat plenty of vegetables will find vegetable juice beneficial, as it allows them to consume large portions of vegetable each day.

Another important element in our diet is antioxidant has it has the ability to cut the risk of Alzheimers. Juicing our vegetables mean that our bodies will assimilate it quickly and receive the benefits necessary, vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, spinach, in addition to fruit juices can be very useful in helping the brain. The use of alcohol destroys brain cells and so  should be avoided if one needs to maintain a healthy brain.

Fish like salmon, herring trout, tuna and sardines are found to be very rich in the omega-3 fatty acids. Other excellent source of protein is eggs, carbohydrate such as wheat germ and whole grain is also useful. Soya products are also useful as they provide a good source of folic acid.

The relation that exists between the mind and the body is a very intimate one. Disease is sometimes produced, and is often greatly a result by the imagination; as many of our fears  never materialised, never existed except in our mind. A rejoicing heart doeth good like a medicine." Proverbs 17:22. Let us remember to keep hope alive, a contented mind aids health and adds strength to the body. Love one another and be cheerful because the journey of a thousand mile begin with one step.
