Part 2: Birth of the Dream in Action

ACTION IS EVERYTHING when it comes to dreams.

The dream of the science

Developmental Neurobiology and Ecology


and the discipline of Medicine

Developmental Neurobiological and Ecological Medicine


was quietly born in 1972.

Decades ago, I dreamed, and then, set out to show systematic thinking puts to revise the GENE versus ENVIRONMENT debate and creates a more optimistic path to rich life and GOOD HEALTH.

Developmental Neurobiology and Ecology, Inc. (dba MEND) was incorporated in Minnesota during the fall of 1991.

Next, the MEND Solutions™ came to market in 2000.

Remember, mending our world begins with taking care of the ecology "between our ears."

We can talk about heart, breast, prostate, lung, endocrine, immune, and other diseases, but the greatest tragedy in medicine and our society is how little systematic attention has been given to the . Please join me in the essential change in focus.

MEND is a commercial enterprise focused on GOOD HEALTH strategies and "brain" tools.

Commerce is essential to meet the public's needs that benefit brain health and development.

When its value is appreciated also generates income and also tax revenue.

Taxes, prudently administered, support our public infrastructure and good government.

Non-profit organizations and governmental agencies usually do not produce tax revenue.

Taxpayers deserve responsive representation and government action that supports the common good.

GOOD HEALTH belongs in the forefront of everyone's mind and action.

Funding "sickness care" benefits for a segment of government employees; however, it has long been overwhelming the capacity of our government to use our tax dollars:

  • to educate our children
  • to build and repair our transportation systems (e.g., roads)
  • to meet the fundamental responsibilities of good government

Government employees, as a result, have a responsibility to stay healthy and be ever mindful of brain health and development.

In so doing, they reduce the burden on the taxpayers and guarantee that they truly "have what it takes to get the job done" for the public.

GOOD HEALTH assures that we have the capital resources to fund the schools, roads, and good government programs that require government labor and brain-power.

When people work to develop their full potential and enjoy the fruits and benefits of their efforts, they are in "Pursuit of Happiness."

It is everyone's birthright.

To guarantee the "Pursuit of Happiness," the brain must be given the opportunity to reach its full potential, working properly.

See why the brain support products and Ginformation offered by MEND Solutions™ were created with this fundamental objective squarely in mind?

You're probably not surprised that Premium Brain Support™ is the MEND flagship product.

For a variety of reasons, people throughout the world do not supplement with a product like Premium Brain Support™, nor do they eat foods containing comparable amounts of its key ingredients.

It is unfortunate, but not surprising. For example, it took about a century before Iodine Deficiency Disorder (IDD) was attacked as a global problem although its role in assuring normal cognitive development was well-established!

Kiwanis Clubs around the world were inspired and took on this problem. Clubs in Minnesota played an essential role in getting the ball rolling.

They figured that they would need to raise approximately 70 million dollars to give people freedom from the burdens of Iodine Deficiency Disorder (IDD).

In many inland regions of the world, this micronutrient is unavailable in the diet. In places like Minnesota, IDD was a condition robbing the world of children of their innate cognitive resources and human opportunities enjoyed by those living by the seas.

Kiwanis clubs and their allies have methodically and quietly raised the necessary money to implement their dream.

Kiwanians took the words of President John F. Kennedy and extended them to the world:

"Think not what the world can do for you, but what you can do for the world."

Just picture it if such an enlightened perspective about brain health became commonplace and universally accepted!

In only a few years, people, throughout the world, gained an incredible guarantee of GOOD HEALTH by tackling IDD.

They confirm it daily when they take their iodine supplement. Iodine is a key micro-nutrient, supporting the brain health, its full development and sustenance over the human lifespan.

Through their efforts, science, medicine, commerce, and the Kiwanians have given the world new opportunity in the "Pursuit of Happiness."

Take a moment and reflect on the importance of your commitment to brain support in protecting not only your family's, but also everyone's right to the "Pursuit of Happiness."

Science and medicine have clearly defined what needs to be conquered. Solid science has long demonstrated what happens to people without essential supplementation.

Moreover, the United States Congress prudently mandated supplemental fortification of food because its members appreciated the value of supplementation for the brain decades ago.

Imagine what it would be like for you without iodine, iron, Vitamin B-12, folate, Vitamin D, Vitamin A, and clean drinking water in your home, community and workplace.

Too many people in many parts of the world live out their short and unhappy lives without them. Their lives are fore-shortened because of these easily remedied nutrient deficiencies and toxic exposures.

Always keep in mind, these questions are elementary, the requisite personal actions are likewise straight forward.

If you don't support your brain, do you really believe you can have a healthy brain, a healthy life?

If you don't support your brain, are you really pursuing a happy life and being the person you were meant to be?

At MEND, we are committed to helping people grasp the answers and acquire the tools needed for GOOD HEALTH.

When this happens everyone helps the GOOD HEALTH change move forward.

Mindful changes that emphasize brain support empowers everyone in their "Pursuit of Happiness."

The brain deserves to be honored; the brain is the instrument of a happy, healthy long life.

Let us remember: healthy brains and GOOD HEALTH guarantee the "Pursuit of Happiness."

The time has come to eliminate:

  • brain prejudice
  • brain discrimination
  • brain disease
  • brain disability

In this endeavor, we continue the work of the Founders of America, Lincoln and his abolitionist Republican Party, Women's Suffrage, and the Child Labor Movement.

The benefits of a healthy brain belong to everyone. Please share in the dream that created Campaign GOOD HEALTH™.
