TEOMCROTE = TEOTWAWKI on steroids! The End Of Mankind's Current Reign Over The Earth takes into account that our ancestors were neither suicidal, stupid, nor our genetic inferiors but still wound up getting wiped off the Earth. Whereas CSER [cser.org: Centre for Study of Existential Risk] tries to PREVENT this dispensation from coming to an end, TEOMCROTE works from the eventuality/possibility/probability that the end our age takes place and what to do then

brain health and nutrition


]Distress – The first mental and emotional cause of cancer
The stress response is controlled by the brain via the hypothalamus pituitary adrenal axis or HPA axis. The hypothalamus, which has been called the brain of the brain, is the part of your brain that senses biochemical changes similar to the thermostat in your house. If certain biochemicals go high or low, it triggers the brain to respond. The hypothalamus does so by telling the master hormone gland, the pituitary, to send messages to the adrenal glands to secrete a hormone called cortisol. When cortisol is at the proper level it is anti-inflammatory and promotes health. When cortisol goes too high with acute stress or too low with chronic stress, it causes your immune and digestive systems to shut down, inflammation to increase, blood sugar to rise, hormones to go out of balance and bones to become osteoporotic. When cortisol stays high or low it predisposes you to cancer and many other diseases.

exercise


Type of Exercise Can Actually Make You Smarter
"Aerobic exercise improves ability to coordinate multiple things, long-term planning and your ability to stay on task for extended periods. Resistance training, which is much less studied than the aerobic side of things, "improves your ability to focus amid distracters."
… Voss explained that MRIs of people in their 60s showed increases in gray and white matter after just six months of exercise. This happens in the prefrontal and temporal lobes, sites that usually diminish with age. With exercise, Voss says, they grow.
Voss also explained that the hippocampus area of the brain, key for memory formation, shrinks 1% to 2% per year in those older than 60, but when people in this age group begin fitness regimens, it grows by 1% to 2% instead. Beyond growing one's brain, exercise improves the ability of different parts of the brain to work together, Voss says."

fasting


]Intermittent fasting promotes brain health
Professor Mark Mattson, lead author of the study and professor of neuroscience at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, explained at the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Vancouver that "reducing your calorie intake could help your brain, but doing so by cutting your intake of food is not likely to be the best method of triggering this protection. It is likely to be better to go on intermittent bouts of fasting, in which you eat hardly anything at all, and then have periods when you eat as much as you want. In other words, timing appears to be a crucial element to this process."

#ixzz1omDA3qp5]The role of polyunsaturated fatty acids in neurodegeneration
Excitotoxicity, oxidative stress and inflammation are core processes that play leading roles in neurodegenerative diseases. Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) methodically contribute to and impair the cells' defensive mechanisms against these destructive processes, leading to cellular over-excitation and death. Examples of PUFAs include corn oil, safflower oil, soybean oil and some margarines.
Cells with respiratory damage produce less energy. When energy in a cell falls, membrane pumps --which protect against calcium overload -- falter and the cell is no longer able to keep intracellular calcium concentrations under control. Loading of the mitochondria with calcium beyond a certain point disrupts its function, further decreasing energy availability. Fish oil (DHA and EPA) inhibits these membrane pumps, which normally protect the cell from over-excitation.

]Low circulating omega-3 fatty acids lead to accelerated brain aging and dementia
Researchers publishing in Neurology have found that a diet lacking in omega-3 fatty acids may cause your brain to age faster and lose some of its memory and cognitive capabilities. Regular fatty fish consumption or supplementing with a molecularly distilled form of fish oil is shown to improve memory and thought retention and may significantly lower the risk of cognitive decline associated with the progression of Alzheimer's disease.

foods


]Eliminating gluten from the diet can relieve brain fog (mental confusion)
Gluten-containing foods can cause reactions in the brains of people with gluten sensitivities that lead to brain fog. Gluten is a protein in most grains, including wheat, rye and barley. What people eat does affect the brain. Food allergies can disrupt the sensitive balance of hormones and chemicals in the brain, resulting in problems from depression to schizophrenia.
The brain needs a variety of nutrients to be healthy. Vitamins, minerals, protein, starches and healthy fats are all necessary for optimal brain function. According to [sign in to see URL], some of the most important nutrients include:
• B vitamins, especially B6 and B12
• Calcium
• Choline
• Chromium
• Iodine
• Magnesium
• Omega-3 fatty acids
• Selenium
• Thiamine
• Vitamin D
• Zinc
These nutrients are in a wide range of foods, all of which may not be digested properly because of intestinal damage caused by eating gluten. A lack of these nutrients can cause brain fog.

supplements


So it appears that lithium is a major factor in dealing with stress. to John Gray it's used up by the adrenals and coming back from burnout/depression/etc. can be related, in large part, to lithium levels.
I Googled foods or herbs that contain lithium and all i could find are that dairy probably contains some but that one should generally eat vegetables... not much help there.
With the poor quality soils all mainstream farmers are dealing with today, it's no wonder certain minerals are deficient, if not almost all. Lithium and iodine appear to be big ones in relation to stress. Lithium orotate is commonly used as support for people diagnosed with (extreme) stress.
]It is NOT toxic like lithium carbonate and lithium citrate are.
Dosage 20-25mg lithium = 500mg of lithium orotate/day.
