#Peter’s beautiful profile: You will feel WAY better!
Wait. These are his credentials: Peter is a Registered Acupuncturist (R.Ac.), Registered TCM Herbalist(R.TCM.H.), and Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine (Dr.TCM.). He also holds a Bachelor of Physical Education (BPE), and ALSO he served as the President of the Traditional Chinese Medicine Association of British Columbia from 2007-2010. (I did not know this when I met him, otherwise I would have called him Dr. President Wood. ;-)
Peter is a Chi fan, an expert in the field of Asthma, Allergies and Eczema. He has an awesome wife, Kate, who is a style icon and whom I adore (and I never get the chance to see).
#3 things about dr. President Wood ;-)’s beautiful brain
Beautiful Brains features are shaping up:
1. FOCUS, At the top of the head, (remember, a site of the head called CZ, central cortex). Pete’s brain, just like all the other #beautifulbrains so far, is very focused. Remember whe spoke about theta/beta ratio, the golden standard measure for attention, (there is good, reliable scientific evidence of correlation between high theta/beta ratio and the incidence of ADD, so the lower the ratio the better).
Also, when under task (aka reading a book), dr. Wood's theta/beta ratio goes down, a good ability of the brain to become more focused when engaged in a cognitive activity.
2. SMART: Pete's Alpha Peak Frequency is high aka Pete is smart. Rememebr we said that Alpha is a very complex and interesting brainwave and we look at its Peak bandwidth. Given that Alpha comprises a range between 8Hz and 12 Hz, the higher the dominant frequency, the more "alert", fine tuned the brain. High Alpha is external focus, imagine a fox walking in a forest, feeling confident and very alert. Actually, think of a bear instead, I forgot we are in Canada.
3. DETERMINATION: Luckily for Mrs. Kate Wood, Pete is not overly stubborn. His brain is determined, but not excessively rigid.
You are awesome, dr. President Peter WOOD!!
