Your brain is more valuable than the original painting of Mono Lisa. It is by far more complex than the largest computer in the world, or the panel on an electric atomic power plant. It is so powerful that it controls and navigates you throughout your whole life.
A person cannot put a value on thinking and thinking skills. Lets us start by asking. What is thinking? Thinking is a unique, silent, selective, non-material, low energetic, electromagnetic process in which a person dreams, reasons, calculates, evaluates, perceives, receives senses, conserves, remembers, conceptualizes, organizes, disorganizes, creates, and exercises the future of their lives.
Your future life, education, work ethic, competitiveness, security, home environment, living, working conditions, nutrition, goals, and ambitions determine the path you are on and where it leads you.
Thinking skills are very dependent on nutrition. Without the prober live bioelectric nutrition, thinking skills will not only be diminished, but the neurons, axons, and dendrites in the brain will also be diminished. This causes a loss of thinking skills, neuron deterioration, and over time brain diseases including mental retardation, and Alzheimer’s disease.
Thinking is the reason that man is far ahead of all other animals on the planet. It is the reason that you are reading this weekly posting. Thinking creates your living conditions, comfort, what you do, work environment, innovations, procedures, plans, work, what you wear, and the food that you eat.
Many people’s thinking practices today in the United States are negative to the laws of the constitution, nature, and education. The reason for this negative and reforming of thinking and learning has been practiced by an increasing number of people whose thinking is adverse to the honesty, integrity, and faithfulness of the U.S. educational standards, constitutional laws, and ethical standards which the original founding fathers put in their guidelines. The founders wrote the laws, amendments, and ethical standards to which every government employee swears on the bible to adhere. In the last few years, these honest and ethical standards have been severely abused. The thinking of many government employees has been diverted to dishonest, abusive, unethical, lawless, and greedy diversions. Many people that control education, constitutional laws, integrity, and ethics are trying to control the people, and change the way of our education and government. Their diverse and dishonest judgments are destroying education, laws, and ethics can be written with five words. These diverse words are. POWER, CONTROL, GREED, MONEY, AND DISHONESTY.
People that control education, laws, government, big corporations, government agencies, and police agencies have a big assignment. They need to change to ethics and laws without greed, money, control, and dishonesty. They need to radically change to conform to the honest, ethical, and law standards that have made this nation the most desired nation in the world to live in.
Many of the answers to these very important, and critical issues, practices, and learning lie in the educational guidelines and discipline exercised by the parents and educational systems. The diversion of thinking and education is a grave and harmful situation. Educational guidance by parents and schools should include honest and ethical thinking skills, civics, physics, chemistry, math, science health, nutrition, motivational skills, and goals. These are lacking in many homes and schools. If we compare our national learning system to China and other nations, the United States is about 30th in educational learning behind a great many smaller countries. It will not maintain a high world status unless things are changed.
Parents and schools must teach children much more in ways of thinking, thinking skills, subjects that create curiosity, innovation, motivation, honesty, attention, concentration, focus, math skills, computer skills, music, and competitiveness. Inattention, lack of concentration, and focus are the most common causes of forgetting and not learning.
What makes the brain such a great, powerful, and creative organ? Knowing what is in the brain will help. These are some of the great parts of the brain that navigates you through every day.
The main parts of the brain are the frontal lobes, the parietal lobes, occipital lobes, and the cerebral cortex, which gives the brain its outer wrinkly appearance. Most thinking is done in the frontal lobes of the brain. The parietal lobes (middle part) interpret a lot of information but are not nearly as active as the frontal lobes. The frontal lobe creates cognitive thinking, skills, planning, reason, judgments, language, music, creativity, and rational thought.
Most of the brain is composed of neurons, axons (which are the extensions of neurons), and dendrites which extend from the axons and create the chemical connections between neurons. The axons protrude from the neurons and have long connections which can be as long as 36 inches. They help move electrical messages in the brain and throughout the body systems. A neuron may have one or many axons. There are as many neurons and axons in the brain as there are stars in the milky way galaxy.
Dendrites in the brain are responsible for making chemicals that connect axons that are attached to the neurons. They make the chemical synapse connections that connect neurons and axons. The contact between nerve cells happens in milliseconds. It is done with a chemical connection involving acetylcholine. You create new neurons throughout your life, even at old age. Areas of the brain can create new nerve cells as well as new pathways. Exercising your brain will preserve short-term and long-term memory.
Although the brain contains only about 5 percent of the body weight, it consumes about 25 percent of the body’s oxygen. That is why it is so important to exercise your body and your brain four to seven times each week. The brain needs a lot of oxygen to think, make new brain cells, increase function, and maintain the present cells. Exercise not only improves blood flow to the brain, but triggers numerous chemical and electromagnetic signals that promote excellent brain neuron, axon, and dendrite cognitive functions, learning, and memory. Exercise also protects the brain from cognitive decline and improves cognitive thinking. It helps repair brain cells plus helps in making new brain cells. A big plus here is that great nutrition and exercise also are known to counter the effects of mental decline and Alzheimer’s Disease.
Getting good sleep is great for the brain. It is very wise for children and adults to get 8 or 9 hours of sleep each night. Staying up late hours to cram for school tests has been negative for retaining memory. Your cerebrospinal fluid also has to have time to clean the waste products from the brain and spinal cord.
Our brains can change and grow new cells at any age. This is a process where new cells create new patterns in your brain called “ neuroplasticity.” Neuroplasticity will help change your mindset, emotions, and social network to create good thoughts, good thinking patterns, concentration, and focus. This is especially important because researchers are finding that worry, depression, lack of willpower, and tiredness will retard the formation of neurons, axons, and dendrites in the brain. It also is a part of mental decline and Alzheimer’s disease. It is even more damaging if you are eating a non-electromagnetic, cationic diet. High blood cholesterol, a diet of high omega-6 fats, refined foods, and processed foods will also create mental decline over a long period.
Your diet has a great influence on enhancing your thinking skills. Eating a diet that energizes the brain will prevent mental decline in most people. Short and long-term memory are all enhanced with a great raw, live fresh electromagnetic ionic diet. It has been proven that a great bioelectric diet and exercise have a tremendous effect on keeping both short and long-term memory.
Challenging your brain with mental exercises may seem ludicrous, but it has been proven that you can learn new information throughout life. You can even build a cognitive reserve, using mental exercises and body exercise. The more mental exercises, education, and knowledge that you do as you get older, the more short-term and long-term memory you will be able to retain. There is a problem with many older people where they give up exercise and learning. This may be a detriment to their longevity.
Some tips on keeping a great thinking brain. It is essential to keep your brain healthy with great raw, live electromagnetic ionic foods. Ocean Robbins, A very good Alternative Preventive Physician, suggests that a person needs to eat mostly a raw, live electromagnetic diet. This includes 8 to 12 organic raw fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, sprouts, bulbs, leaves, legumes, squash, and melons. My suggestion is to eat this food in homemade salads, fresh-cut, or lightly cooked. You also should get 1 to 1 and ½ tablespoons of polyunsaturated or monounsaturated oils every day. These can be flaxseed oil, extra virgin olive oil, Udo’s choice, raw northern seed oils, krill oil, fish oil, cod liver oil, and one saturated oil, coconut oil. Eat plenty of fermented foods, legumes, spices, (turmeric is great), wild rice, tea, coffee, eggs, and 4-5 cups of water daily.
Foods that you should avoid to keep a healthy brain are sugar, sugar derivatives, carbohydrates, all omega-6 fats on the grocery shelf, excess salt, energy drinks, excess red meat, sausage, excess alcohol, and deep-fried foods. It is wise to keep a neutral electromagnetic pH. It is also wise to eat foods that create alkalinity, including soy, legumes, wild rice, raw fresh plant seeds like flaxseed, chia, pumpkin seeds, and fermented foods.
Another thought. The brain is motivated by exercise, achievement, drive, and goals. Replace depression, bad stress, negative thoughts, and couch living. Replace them with great positive thoughts, healthy routines, great sleep, exercise, confidence, goals, and a great happy lifestyle. Maybe if you do we will help you blow out the candles on your 100th birthday.

Merle E. Loudon, B.S., D.D.S. graduated from the University Of Washington School Of Dentistry in 1957. After two years of service in the Air Force, he started a private practice in East Wenatchee, Washington. For the past 45 years his practice has included Orthodontics and TM Dysfunction treatment specializing in temporomandibular pain treatment, headache, head and neck pain control, functional jaw orthopedics, and straight wire orthodontics. Associated with mercury elimination, oral surgery, crowns and bridges is TMJ treatment, diet control, parasite elimination, intestinal cleansing and healing (wellness).
Merle E. Loudon, B.S., D.D.S. has taught advanced courses for dentists on TM Dysfunction treatment, orthodontics and related pain control for more than 30 years. In 1972 he was the first dentist in Washington to use straight wire orthodontics and the first dentist to correct vertical deficiencies in children by placing vertical dimension-primary molar buildups and/or vertical (erupting) appliances. Merle E. Loudon, B.S., D.D.S. was involved with the first group of dentists to recognize lateral tongue splinting in young infants and integrate functional and fixed techniques to correct vertical dimension deficiencies and condylar placement. He is the originator of vertical dimension-primary molar build ups, which help to correct deep bites and Otitus media in children. He invented the Loudon-Chateau Anterior Repositioning Appliance, the functional muscle malocclusion concept, the twelve commandments of occlusion and the vertical overbite domino rule. Merle E. Loudon, B.S., D.D.S. has written numerous articles in several American and foreign dental journals and has lectured in over 50 cities and 7 foreign countries on functional jaw orthopedics, fixed wire orthodontics, Otitus media treatment and TM Dysfunction treatment. He has been instrumental in setting up criteria for teaching in the International Association For Orthodontics, including the certified instructor program.
Dr. Loudon is a member of The American Dental Association, Diplomat and Senior Instructor in the International Association for Orthodontics, and is a Diplomat of the American Academy of Pain Management. He also is a member of the American Orthodontic Society.
