Kathryn's journey from struggling with learning disabilities to becoming the youngest engineer worldwide is truly remarkable. Despite facing numerous challenges growing up, Kathryn's life changed when she discovered the healing powers of a concentrated sandalwood extract. The scent of sandalwood not only improved her overall health, but also increased the amount of oxygen delivered to her brain by up to 82%. This allowed her to recover effectively from the damage to her brain and resulted in a significant improvement in her cognitive abilities.
With her newfound abilities, Kathryn excelled in her studies, mastering physics and landing a secured position in NASA. Her larger dendrites, which are the most important factors contributing to exceptional intelligence, made it possible for her to have an exceptionally high IQ. Kathryn's story is a powerful testament to the resilience of the human brain and the potential for scientific advancements to improve our lives.

According to Med-India, poor diet, lack of sleep, inadequate exercise, frequent consumption of sugary foods, and unhealthy lifestyles are bad habits that could damage the brain. Stress, Anxiety, and Anger are the things we shouldn’t allow to take over us. Because these factors can increase the production of free radicals in the body that slowly deteriorate some parts of the mind by disrupting the blood flow in the brain and affecting the supply of oxygen.

Brain damage can have a significant impact on intelligence and memory, depending on the location and extent of the damage. If the damage is within the frontal area, it will impact your emotions and behavior. An injury in the topmost part of the brain affects your movement and sensation. Impairing the upper middle part will affect your problem-solving skills. While damage to the lower part of the brain will negatively impact your coordination, memory recall, and capacity to learn.

The brain has an extraordinary ability to heal itself through a process called ‘Neuroplasticity” by adapting and changing its response to different needs. When the brain is damaged, other regions of the brain can take over the lost functions by rewiring themselves through new neural connections. According to Breakthrough Intensive Physical Therapy, this can happen both spontaneously and through the help of specific methods such as “Aromatherapy Brain Stimulation”.

Additionally, regular exercise, a healthy diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants, getting enough restful sleep each night, and engaging in mentally stimulating activities like puzzles or games regularly are additional factors that can boost the effects of Aromatherapy Brain Stimulation. Inhaling essential oils like Sandalwood can increase the supply of oxygen in the mind ranging from 28 to 82 percent more, and improves blood flow.

Oxygen is one of the main sources of the healing processes of the body, particularly the brain. And that is what Sandalwood’s Sesquiterpenes does best, by increasing the amount of oxygen supplied it not only heals the brain through Neuroplasticity but also improves cognitive function. The oxygenation of the deepest part of the mind helps metabolize the vitamins and minerals that are essential to enhance the cognitive functional capacity of each area of the brain.
Also, the presence of Sesquiterpenes' anti-inflammatory properties in Sandalwood oil stops the accumulation of free radicals by preventing stress which can cause damage to the brain cells. It also prevents the production of TNF-α which is responsible for the binding and accumulation of immune cells due to fatigue or migraine which causes swelling in our head. Based on trials, people with inflammation in their brains experienced a 37 percent decline in thinking and memory skills.

Among the Ayurvedic medicines, Bacopa Monnieri or also known as Water Hyssop is an herb used to increase anyone’s IQ by up to tenfold. It helps to improve the speed of visual information processing. It is similar to how people with Genius-level IQ have the best photographic memory. Because it supports their mind to memorize a large chunk of information at a faster rate.
Bacopa Monnieri works by producing more serum calcium levels that are needed for essential nourishment to improve the cognitive functions of the brain. This biochemical production results in the increased performance of both semantic memory (remembering) and visual-spatial abilities (learning). While the Alkaloids present in Bacopa Monnieri treat Neurodegenerative conditions like ADHD and Dyslexia. It inhibits the activity of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) which helps our mind to think properly.
Benjamin was a dedicated father to his three children, working hard on a construction site to provide for them. However one day, a falling block hit him while he's on his usual task, giving him a severe brain injury. Benjamin spent three months in the hospital, suffering from headaches and fading memories, which left him feeling depressed. But, a co-worker visited him and handed an oil containing Sandalwood Extract and Bacopa Monnieri, and after using it, his headaches vanished in just one day, giving him hope for the future.
After using the oil infused with sandalwood extract for 15 days, Benjamin experienced a remarkable improvement. He was able to remember his youngest daughter, and they spent a lot of time talking. Overcome with joy, Benjamin shed tears of happiness as he realized how much progress he had made. Despite the doctors telling him it was almost impossible to regain all of his memories, the oil had helped him to do just that. Furthermore, his severe headaches and flattened head were healing day by day, giving him hope for a brighter future with his beloved children.
Benjamin's memory abilities improved significantly, after using the sandalwood oil with bacopa for 30 days allowing him to make up for lost time with his children. With his improved mind and body, he returned to work with a renewed appreciation for his health and safety, grateful for the second chance at life that the oil had given him.
"After the incident, I felt like my life was over. Despite undergoing various treatments, I saw no improvement, and the doctors told me it was impossible to regain all of my memories. But everything changed when I started using sandalwood oil. It gave me the hope and healing I needed to finally make up for the three months I was away from my children. Now, I can look forward to spending the rest of my life with them, cherishing every moment together."
