BRAIN ON FIRE: NEUROINFLAMMATION AND NATURAL REMEDIES
I was speaking with my mother the other day when I decided to ask what her biggest health concern was. She responded that her biggest concern, at 85 is signs and onset of dementia.
Neuroinflammation refers to the inflammation within the brain and spinal cord. It is thought to be a contributing factor for many disease processes including dementia. The number of people with dementia globally is estimated to be 50 million. In a recent report published by the World Health Organization, this number is currently this is greater than the total population of Spain and is expected to nearly triple by 2050. Anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder and autism may additionally be affected by this specific type of inflammation.
When working to address inflammation, we must consider natural remedies that have the ability to cross barriers between the blood and the brain. My favorite quality-controlled, and clinically effective products are:
Turmeric Forte: Turmeric Forte specifically crosses barriers between the brain and the blood. This product is standardized to total curcuminoids and to curcumin, to ensure optimal strength and quality. Listen to Dr. Ann Doggett and Keith Wrightington talk Turmeric Forte here.
