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.

Detecting Gluten Sensitivity: The New Frontier

by Sean Croxton

I used to be the King of Whole Grains.

Indoctrinated to be a processed food salesman by my university-taught nutrition courses, I spent several years drilling the base of the USDA Food Guide Pyramid into the skulls of my personal training clients.

“Six to eleven servings of bread, rice, and pasta a day, you people!! How on Earth do you expect to meet your energy and fiber requirements? Do it! DO IT NOW!”

Fast-forward ten years to present day and I can’t help but wonder how much damage my whole grain zealotry may have caused. Who knows how many of my clients were overweight, fatigued, depressed, and more due to undiagnosed gluten sensitivity.
