A baby is born with about 100 billion brain cells, or neurons, give or take a few million. The brain is very important that 4 weeks after the conception, an embryo can produce half a million neurons in every minute. In completely developed humans, the complex system that contains 300 million neurons gets in touch with the right and left sides of the brain, but they are very minuscule that 30,000 of them are able to fit on a pinhead.
In order to make the most of the brain, it has to be nurtured and exercised, just like the other muscles in the body. The synapses, which are points of the brain connection, need to be conversed and created for the brain in order to stay healthy and alert throughout the adulthood. How can the parents ensure that their child’s development is regularly improving during the school time? But, what could the parents of a learning disabled child do in order to help them in their development?
One of the options is Superbrain Yoga. This squat exercise gives benefits not only for young students, but also for adult people searching for brain wellness into the senior years and also patients with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD, Attention Deficit Disorder or ADD, Alzheimer’s, Down Syndrome, or some other cognitive delays and development challenges seeking cures and normalcy.
The Science that stands behind the Superbrain Yoga
Dr. Joie P. Jones, who comes from the Dept. of Radiological Sciences, which is part of the University of California, has done a research and concluded that the exercise works using the energy centers of the body which digest, absorb, and distribute energy to a different body part. These energy centers are the most important acupuncture points. These acupressure energy points for our eyes, brain, mouth, forehead, temples, parotid, testes, and ovaries congregate around the space of the ear touched by pressure from this exercise. Also, the finger pads that are used in this exercise stimulate the neuropathways into the by the activation of the acupuncture points on the earlobes. After doing this exercise, an EEG scan demonstrates the left and right brain hemispheres have synchronized, according to Dr. Jones.
If the Superbrain Yoga exercise is done correctly, it helps the energy captured in the lower energy centers to move up through the other major centers of the physical body. As the energy moves upwards, it goes through the heart center of the practitioner and fills it with feelings of inner peace and calm. When the energy moves into the throat and beyond, the creativity and intelligence of the practitioner are improved. Some other benefits include the balance of the sex drive, and that is very important for the teenagers.
We are used to exercise to get fit, but with the special power of the Superbrain Yoga exercise, now we can become brighter in that process. The prolonged practice of this exercise makes the practitioner more psychologically balances and smarter.
How To Activate and Energize The Brain
If you want to achieve maximum benefits:
- Face East, but for elderly people, face North.
- You should remove any jewelry which connects the tongue to the roof of the mouth. You should leave it on that place throughout the whole exercise.
- Now, take the left hand, then cross the upper body in order to hold the right earlobe with your thumb and forefinger. But, your thumb should be in the front.
- Now, you have to take the right hand across the upper body in order to hold the left earlobe (the thumb should be in front). With this you are pressing your two earlobes at the same time. Your left arm should be close to your chest and also inside the right arm.
- Then, inhale through the nose and squat down to the ground slowly.
- Hold the breath and then exhale while going back to the previous position.
- Repeat this exercise 14 times. Don’t forget to keep holding the earlobes and also to keep the tongue touching the roof of the mouth.
When To Expect The First Results
If you want to maximize the benefits of this exercise, you can make it a fun daily habit together with your child getting ready for a school or after school if they need a re-charge. The best way for the teenagers is to lead by example and practice the first thirty days together. You will begin to see results in the first 3 months of everyday repetition, and in just 7 months your child will boost their cognitive abilities by 20 to 35 percent, but by that time this exercise will become just a habit that you will want to repeat it every day.
