The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) held its 26th A4M Spring World Congress this past week-end. Here is what we learned.
“You are not stuck with the brain you have!”
-Dr. Daniel Amen, April 2018
The theme of this fascinating conference was “BRAIN AWAKENING” and what an awakening it was! We certainly do not pamper our most precious organ enough and with today’s lifestyle and stress, our brain is challenged.
Here are the Top 3 Takeaways:
Brain fog, weight gain, cognitive decline … Mold is a player that we should consider more often. Mold is a neurotoxin and a disruptor and some of us are more susceptible than others due to our genetic variations. Something to keep in mind!
The panel of speakers was remarkable but DR Daniel Amen and his brain scans were sensational: He wrote the Brain Warrior’s Way book (that I purchased and am currently reading) Enlightening and motivating not only for brain health but well being overall. “You are not stuck with the brain you have” amazing statement, as the most harmful factors are preventable, and you can rewire your brain!
Stress, toxins, pathogens, gluten, sugar… will increase inflammation in many individuals and cause in turn an unbalance in your gut. If your gut becomes inflamed your brain will be inflamed as well (leaky gut/leaky brain). The gut -brain relationship is real and highly influenceable.
