The Inflamed Brain with Dr Brandon Brock

How well do you understand the inner workings of the brain?
 

We're well aware of the effects that poor nutrition, lack of sleep, excessive or chronic stress and toxins can play on brain and cognitive health. But what are the actual mechanisms of damage to the brain? How does the brain clean away damaged cellular debris and what happens when our normal healing mechanisms don't work? Furthermore, how can we repair a brain damaged by chronic inflammation?

Ahead of his travels down under for the 7th BioCeuticals Research Symposium, we welcome back Dr Brandon Brock, who has dedicated his career to caring for the brains of children, adults and indeed, military personnel.

In today's podcast, we'll discuss how chronic, unremitting inflammation damages the minds of so many patients. He shares how to best assess what the real issue is with their neurology, and what we can do to either mitigate, or repair the inflamed brain.
