DK_SYB_Banner_600x600_0216Do you suffer from the following symptoms of brain fog?

  • Perpetual mental fog
  • Trouble concentrating or remembering things
  • Life always seem difficult and tiring
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Lack of motivation

If so, you may have brain inflammation.

Why does this matter?

Because brain fog can lead to early brain degeneration that may be irreversible if caught too late.

Although brain fog is not addressed by conventional medicine, it responds well to functional medicine protocols.

Dr. Kharrazian will teach you which steps to take and in which order to address your brain symptoms in the Banish Brain Fog: The Six-Week Brain Rescue Plan online course.

Brain fog signals brain inflammation — functional medicine can help

When you sprain an ankle, you know something is wrong because of the pain, redness and swelling. But an inflamed brain doesn’t hurt.

Instead, it causes fatigue, foggy thinking, forgetfulness, lack of motivation, and depression. People don’t realize these are symptoms of poor brain health.

This is because the brain’s immune system does not have this “off-switch,” and inflammation can crawl through the brain like an unchecked fire, destroying tissue along the way.

This accelerates brain aging and raises the risk of Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, and other brain degenerative diseases. Brain inflammation can even lead to psychiatric mood disorders.

These are mechanisms explained in more detail in the Banish Brain Fog: The Six-Week Brain Rescue Plan.

Causes of brain inflammation that functional medicine can help

  • Chronic inflammation
  • Blood sugar imbalances (hypoglycemia, insulin resistance, or diabetes)
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Gut infections
  • Heavy metals and other environmental toxins
  • Stress and lack of sleep
  • Head injuries or stroke

Food intolerances are a major cause of brain fog

One of the more common causes of brain fog is a food intolerance, particularly to gluten. Many people have banished brain fog simply by going gluten-free. In fact, research shows gluten is linked to a variety of neurological and psychological disorders.

Functional medicine solutions

Thankfully, the brain responds well to functional medicine dietary and lifestyle strategies. Functional medicine can not only eliminate symptoms, but also improve brain function for years to come.

Nobody but you cares about your brain — don’t wait until it’s too late!

Nobody else will care about your brain health — that’s up to you. Don’t wait until it’s too late!

To learn how to address your brain fog with functional medicine, join the Banish Brain Fog: The Six-Week Brain Rescue Plan community. You’ll learn tools you’ll use lifelong and that could very well save you from a neurodegenerative disease such as Alzheimer’s or dementia.

    Hello,

    I was looking at the below page on your website that mentioned a mental health topic, and I’m curious if you’d be open to me writing some unique content for your audience on the subject. It was this page of your site that I was looking at:

      Marie; Thanks for your inquiry. Sorry, but Dr. Kharrazian is not looking for content writers at this time.

    I really need to see this doctor or to speak with him. Every doctor I have seen claims they cannot help me anymore. My gut is so bad that I have all of these symptoms and my children and husband have basically lost their mom to being unable to function. I am only 46 and cannot eat In fear of such pain and sickness. Please let me know how I can fix myself or with him. Everything is so hard for me, and I am afraid it is too late with Alzheimer’s. May someone please get ahold of me?

      Hello Tanya;

      Sorry to hear you are suffering so. Dr. Kharrazian is not taking new patients or adding any names to a wait list, due to an overfull wait list, teaching schedule, and new research schedule at Harvard.

      In the link below are practitioners who are highly trained in Dr. Kharrazian’s protocols, and also teach for him. Some of them may be willing to practice remotely; you would need to contact them individually to find out.

      (http://thyroidbook.com/practitioner-locator/).

      Good luck, and don’t give up!

    I have poor blood circulation. I’ve read Dr. Kharrazian’s book and I’m interested in ordering the nutritional strategies for brain circulation and oxygen. Should I order these botanical compounds separately, or does he have a tincture or combination that he sells?

    • Susan (admin) September 25, 2017 at 9:29 pm

      Erin;

      Hopefully you already saw my answer to your similar email. Here’s what I wrote:

      Thank you for your inquiry. Sorry, but Dr. Kharrazian doesn’t sell any supplements. With many of his patients, he uses products that he formulates for Apex Energetics (they are the “K-series” items) (https://www.apexenergetics.com/). Apex is a practitioner line, so your doctor would need to have an account with them. However, the botanicals can all be found over the counter as well. Dosing would have to be determined between you and your practitioner, as we are not allowed to make medical recommendations without you being one of Dr. K’s patients.

      Good luck, and remember that exercise along with the botanicals is key for oxygenation and circulation. Many people ignore this and don’t benefit as much as they could.

    Is this course from the point of view of the thyroid only, or does it consider female sex hormones as well, since 90% of thyroid patients are female?

    • Susan (admin) October 3, 2017 at 8:31 pm

      Mary;

      Thank you for your interest in the course. The course is based on Dr. Kharrazian’s brain book, and guides you through the introductory protocols that he uses with all his patients. At the bottom of this page are options for finding the book: (http://brainhealthbook.com/). It’s not thyroid specific; it addresses the inflammatory processes common to patients with many chronic illness issues, including Hashimoto’s. The course does not go into any detail on hormones.

      Please let us know if you have any more questions. You can also email questions via the Contact page.
