This book felt a bit like a long info commercial for vitamin and lab companies. I loved Datis Thyroid book so I came at this new book with high hopes however I was let down. First it is a massive book 587 pages and the biggest weakness is it is poorly organized. The book has no flow instead it jumps form topic to topic. Also the book is heavily focused on supplements (a reflection of Datis relationship with Apex no doubt) and I wanted to see more emphasis on functional neurological therapies like his mention of gargling to stimulate the Vagus nerve... more of that or at least a balance would have been nice. I feel that Datis has just thrown together his lecture notes and inserted testimonials from doctors who use his methods without leading the reader through a natural progression that leads to a final conclusion... because there is no concluding chapter, the book just ends. Also the art work in the text is very urban and graffiti inspired. I actually liked it but it seemed very out of place in a book of this scope. So I did not hate it and I still think Datis is a smart guy but this, to me, fell short of what I expected.

Don't know what you've got til it's gone! In 1992, I spent a few weeks with my grandmother in a nursing home following an episode where she stopped her car in the middle of city traffic, got out of the car and sat on the curb. The police stopped by and asked her what was wrong and she said she was waiting for her husband to pick her up from work. My grandfather had been dead for 12 years at this point. This is when I learned about dementia. Every patient I have spoken to since is terrified of this disease, especially if they have experienced the extreme devastation first hand as a care-giver or just seeing your parent's or grandparent's inability to recognize you any longer.

There is an overwhelming amount of research supporting why the brain is affected by inflammation, metabolic disorders, and autoimmunity leading toward it's rapid degeneration. This degeneration is what we deal with everyday as people. We see ourselves slowing, missing words, developing constipation, constantly stressed, chronic fatigue, forgetting where we parked our car or left our phone, dependency on venti stimulants and energy drinks, brain fog, losing enjoyment for the people and activities in our lives. These things we jokingly snicker about with our friends are early signs of brain decay. Many of these are risk factors for development of diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases. However, the brain is out of sight, so therefore out of mind. We have accepted these symptoms as normal so they are not seen as red flag warnings of the slippery slope ahead. Instead, nothing is done for them and more demise continues until one day you are sitting on a curb. Waiting. Waiting for help. Help that should have come decades earlier.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Kharrazian has done it again! His first book on the thyroid was absolutely revolutionary. It gave such hope to many who were suffering with chronic health issues but were unaware that autoimmunity - particularly thyroid autoimmunity - was the underlying cause of their discomfort and ill health. As a nutrition professional who has studied with Dr. Kharrazian and whose clients have benefited enormously from his depth of knowledge and his nutrition strategies, I have been anxiously awaiting this new book. What is presented in this new book is beyond revolutionary! Having personally read the majority of the books on mood, neurotransmitters and brain health over the past fifteen years, I can say without a doubt that this is the most comprehensive and practical book available. If you wish to improve your brain function at the highest level and go beyond what you thought would make a difference - beyond diet, beyond exercise, beyond lifestyle - then you should take to heart every chapter of this book. He helps you understand the complexity of the brain and its interrelationships to the rest of the body and how key strategies for improving brain health can be incorporated into your life each day. When I have shared the principles form Dr K's approach with my clients, I have personally seen people who were so depressed that not even medication could help them, completely recover by improving gut function, addressing gluten sensitivity, and taking targeted nutritional support. I have seen people who were experiencing troubling memory issues regain brain clarity. As you read this book pay close attention to those underlying issues that cause brain fatigue and degeneration, assess your own brain status and then follow his suggestions to improve your brain health at many different levels!!!

Wonderful information. I do the elimination diet recommended in this book,( 5 months), and a few products listed in this book. My brain fog has lifted, I have twice as much energy. Still trying to heal my leaky gut. But life is much better. It is a harder read for those who are sick, you may want to skip to the back of the book for the summery.

I have been in the nutritional healthcare field for over 14 years and the information contained in this book is critical to solving the problems unanswered by modern medicine. Let's face it, if your brain doesn't work well, your life doesn't work well.
Dr. Kharrazian has done a masterful job putting together the pieces of the puzzle of brain dysfunction and what inevitably follows, health dysfunction.

The case studies liberally sprinkled throughout the book are compelling, agonizing and ultimately, triumphant. More than that, the information in this book is based on scientific peer reviewed studies, making it timely, valid and reproducible.

I want to give this book to all of my patients.

If you or a loved one is experiencing any symptoms of a brain decline like memory loss, mood shifts, trouble concentrating, actually any noticeable change in your brain's function and therefore your health, READ THIS BOOK!!

If you are in the healthcare fields and want to help your patients more, READ THIS BOOK!!
