How Inflammation Affects The Brain And How To Cool It

Episode 716 1h 5m


Brain conditions, such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, autism, Alzheimer’s, and even schizophrenia, are fast becoming one of the largest categories of chronic health concerns. Instead of just relying on the traditional approach of looking at the brain in isolation as the means of healing these conditions, we are learning more and more that when you heal the body, you also heal the mind.

In today’s episode, I talk with Dhru Purohit, Dr. Dale Bredesen, and Dr. Todd LePine about the one common factor behind all brain disorders: inflammation. We explore how inflammation may arise from our diets, toxins in our environment, stress, and more.
