Podcast #334:
Insomnia, Brain Fog, and The Depression Connection.

datis kharrazian

Guest: Dr. Datis Kharrazian, DHSc, DC, MNeuroSc

I’ve been waiting three months to post this.

Whenever I have the privilege of sitting down to interview Dr. Datis Kharrazian, he never fails to leave me with that “mind-blown” kind of feeling.

I mean, really, how smart can one person be?

So to kick off this week’s “Early Bird” Depression Sessions festivities, here’s Dr. Kharrazian’s full-length interview on How to Figure Out What’s Causing Your Depression.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

* Why there’s more to correcting mood disorders than just boosting neurotransmitter levels with amino acid supplements. A lot more!

* Why traumatic brain injuries often show up as depression … years down the road.

* How chronic gut inflammation can cause brain inflammation, leading to depression.

* What the “other symptoms” presenting with depression — anxiety, insomnia, blood sugar problems, and brain fog — can reveal about its cause.

brain-foodby Sean Croxton

Are you noticing a theme here?

For the past month or so, we’ve been discussing all things brain health, including how insulin resistance and gluten sensitivity damage our noodles, how a brain on fire can leave us feeling foggy, and the role of hormonal imbalances in neurotransmitter and mood issues.

Plus, our pal Jim Kwik — he’s on UW Radio Monday night, by the way — invited us to learn his best kept secrets and strategies for upgrading your memory, recall, and learning speed in this FREE video series.

Today, we eat.

In the video below, Christa Orecchio of The Whole Journey invites us into her kitchen and shows us the very BEST foods to protect our brains…and live longer.

Adding these foods to your diet will reduce oxidative stress, cool down inflammation, and significantly cut your risk of major brain conditions like Alzheimer’s, MS, and Parkinson’s.

Now that’s smart!

Podcast 227: How to Clear Up Brain Fog!

BrainBookCVR-199x300by Sean Croxton

And the fog rolls in.

You walk into a room with purpose, then all of a sudden you can’t remember why.

You’re in the middle of good rant and suddenly forget what you’re talking about.

Life is good, but you can’t help but feel depressed and unmotivated.

And those darn keys! It’s like they grow a set of legs when you’re not looking…

If you feel like your brain isn’t quite what it used to be, you’re probably right. Brain related disorders have become incredibly common. Unfortunately, both western and alternative medicine have completely missed the boat on the cause and cure for these issues, typically chalking them up to aging.

It’s not that simple.

While aging does in fact play a role in brain degeneration, there are plenty of other contributing factors that are not being addressed or even considered, including blood sugar problems, autoimmunity, stress, food intolerances, infections, neurotransmitter deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, and more.

Last night on Underground Wellness Radio, Dr. Datis Kharrazian — author of the book Why Isn’t My Brain Working? — joined me for a fascinating discussion about the root cause(s) of brain fog, depression, anxiety, and other common brain problems. Plus, how to fix them!
