What is The Brain Health Programme?
The Brain Health Programme is a nutrition and lifestyle coaching programme delivered by Cytoplan Licensed Nutritional Therapists. It has been designed to optimise brain health and cognitive function using a multi-modal nutrition and lifestyle approach.
You will attend weekly meetings covering topics that have all been shown in research as being important for brain health, including:
- Nutrition for brain health
- Optimising gut health
- Stress reduction
- Getting a good night’s sleep
- Brain training
Each workshop is designed to help you engage with every aspect of the programme and understand what you need to do to optimise brain function. The workshops include talks, activities and discussion to show you how to make, and sustain, lifelong food and lifestyle choices to improve brain health.
Of course, we don’t just eat because we are hungry – being bored, upset, and the sight or smell of food can all cause us to eat, sometimes hijacking our good intentions and causing us to make poor food choices or to overeat. The Brain Health Programme will start you on the journey towards understanding and changing your relationship with food, with the goal of helping you make long-term, sustainable behaviour changes.
Who is the programme for?
If you are concerned about your risk of cognitive decline now or in the future, perhaps because you have experienced brain fog, poor memory, anxiety, low mood, stress or a reduction in your ability to concentrate, or maybe you have a family member that has been diagnosed with dementia, then you might be interested in attending an introductory talk to find out more about the dietary and lifestyle choices you could adopt to support brain health and maintain healthy cognitive function.
