Brain Food: Brain Health Through Diet

“In a perfect world, food should provide all the necessary nutrients to support optimal brain health.” Turner, J. 2011, “Your Brain on Food: A Nutrient-Rich Diet Can Protect Cognitive Health”, Journal of American Society on Aging, 35 (2), 99-106.

In our not so perfect world, that statement presents a three part problem:

  • How do we know what we need?
  • How do we know what to eat to get what we need?
  • What happens if we can’t get enough of what we need naturally?

Ruth Curran, MS Brain Function  With over twenty-five years of expertise as a strategist, business development executive, and organizational behaviorist, Ms. Curran has developed a reputation as an exceptional business and personal development coach.  Ms. Curran’s passion and area of intense study and exploration has been the connection between the brain and daily functioning. This passion spurred her latest project, www.craniumcrunches.com, a photo-based series of thinking puzzles and games that help work around the effects of age, disease, or injury (TBI) on cognitive functioning and quality of life. Ms. Curran’s primary focus is on using a wide variety of games and “play” – those that inspire players to imagine, use strategies, and focus to succeed -- as a path to better thinking, better functioning, and better quality of life.
