How to Detoxify Your Brain for a Long, Healthy Life

On March 26, 2018, I gave a lecture to 70 people in Ghent, Belgium. I’d like to share with you one of the key messages from that lecture.


"When a person’s physical body ages, it grows old. However, depending on how you manage it, the health of that physical body becomes different. Just because you are at a young age, it doesn’t make you healthy, and simply being older doesn’t make you sick. It’s the same as a car. If you don’t take good care of it, you could total a new car in one month; but if you manage and care for it well, you could exceed the average and drive it around for 30 years. Our bodies are also truly different depending on how we manage and care for them.

"Are you familiar with the 106-year-old Frenchman, Robert Marchand? In his youth, he performed hard labor as a gardener, truck driver, firefighter, and so on, and his health deteriorated, and he was in his fifties when he decided he had to manage his health. What’s important is that he took a good look at himself. He looked at his past and he looked at his present, and that’s when he made a choice. He thought, “I’d better not live like this.”

"For most people, when they retire, they think, “I’m done living my life,” but what he did was make a resolution: “I’d better wake up and get it together. I have to make a new beginning.” And then he started cycling. Cycling is a wonderful exercise. But what made him healthy wasn’t the cycling so much as his mind and his spirit. By using his brain, he initiated change.

"Today, all of you brought your brain with you. Normally, we can’t really see our brain, so we don’t think about our brain that much. Compared to that, when it comes to the stomach, we’re always thinking about it and aware of it. “My digestion is good, or, it’s not good. I’m hungry, or, I’m full. I feel bloated,” etc. We’re always conscious of our stomach and we pay attention to the condition of our stomach. We think of our stomach as we have our three meals a day, and even the emotions of happiness and unhappiness are ruled depending on the condition of the stomach. That’s why your stomach always has your attention and it wants you to put good food and tasty food inside of it.

"But between your stomach and your brain, which one do you think is more important? Have you ever heard of brain indigestion? Many people have the condition of brain indigestion. They don’t know, however, that brain indigestion is a bigger problem than stomach indigestion.

"Your stomach consumes food, and your brain consumes information. Your brain digests vast quantities of information. Just as there is good food and junk food, even for information, there’s good information and “junk information.” In life, you come across bad information even if you don’t want it. If you have stomach indigestion, you can take a digestive aid, but there’s no digestive medicine for the brain. That’s why a problem occurs when various negative or bad information comes and settles into the brain and tries to control it.

"Nowadays, many medical scientists are concerned about issues of mental health. It’s already known that medical treatment merely acts as a stabilizer, it doesn’t effectively treat the fundamental problem. If there were a digestive aid for the brain, too, and if it were discovered and produced, wouldn't it offer some comfort and relief for your brain?

"At the age of 50, Robert Marchand assessed his body with his brain. So, what he did was to use the method of cycling as that digestive aid. That’s how he created a new future for himself, a second life. If you resonate with that, please give a round of applause. Even applause, as well as smiling, is information. They’re very good information for your health. I’d like you to direct your smiles and applause toward your own brain. If you smile as you clap, it brings good health as well as good fortune.

"By giving positive information to your brain like this, the information is converted into action, and change occurs in your brain. Then, change takes place in your heart, and your blood circulation is improved. When you do that, your body temperature rises 0.5 degrees (Celsius). There is a significant correlation between the condition of our brain and our temperature. If we want to, we can bring up that temperature at any time.

"But if junk information has entered and filled up your brain, your brain can’t function properly. It becomes a faulty brain. Your body temperature drops and your immune system is weakened. You lose motivation and develop various circulation problems. People who fail to address the problem of junk information could be controlled by it their entire lifetime.

"That’s why we need to inform our brains. Our brain has the capacity to purify, or detoxify, information. People who know that well are able to detox their brain and use it effectively. I made Brain Education so that many people could solve their mental health problems or issues of a faulty brain and become the owner and master of their brain."

 

One Brain Education exercise I especially recommend for purifying your brain is Brain Wave Vibration. By physically vibrating your body and shaking your head and tapping your body (especially your abdomen), you raise your temperature and find your negative thoughts shaking out of your brain. To see an example of Brain Wave Vibration, you can watch these videos.

As an extension of that, you can do Belly Button Healing, which activates the "brain" you have in your gut and removes both stomach indigestion and brain indigestion. Press your belly button in and out rhythmically while you concentrate your mind on your abdomen, and soon warmth and clarity will fill your body. To learn more about how to do Belly Button Healing, you can see videos here.
