Patient Testimonials:  

Thanks for Sharing!! 

 

When I first came to Dr Geck, I had terrible back pain and a lot of trouble focusing on my work and felt sluggish.   

After I started the care, my back is much better.  I am able to walk long distances and in general feel much healthier.  I started on the supplements and slept better, and now ab able to focus completely.  I'm at my desk for as much as 10 hours a day without any problems.   

 

I am very appreciative of what Dr. Geck and the staff have done for me.  I was a bit skeptical the beginning because I had so many treatments at other facilities without success.  I started the program Dr Geck recommended and I am surely glad that I did.     

G.K.  

 

Help others feel great too!

8 Reasons why People get Brain Fog.

Question

 

I seem to live in a perpetual fog, like I can't think clearly or I'm not all the way there. Why do I have brain fog?

 

Answer

 

Brain fog is a sign of brain inflammation. Although inflammation in the brain doesn't cause pain, it can cause symptoms of brain fog.

 

The brain is protected by a thin lining called the blood-brain barrier, which allows nano-sized compounds in or out of the brain as appropriate. However the blood-brain barrier can become "leaky," just as the gut barrier can. This allows large particles into the brain that don't belong there. These invaders trigger brain inflammation.

 

Brain inflammation can also result from:

            Hypothyroidism

            Chronic inflammation in the body

            Blood sugar imbalances

            Hormonal imbalances

            Gut infections

            Stress and lack of sleep

            Heavy metals and pollutants

            Head injuries or stroke

 

If left unmanaged brain inflammation causes damage to nerve tissue and accelerates brain aging, increasing the risk of neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's.

 

A commonly seen cause of brain fog is a food intolerance, particularly to gluten. Many people have resolved chronic brain fog simply by adapting a strict gluten-free diet. Recent research has shown gluten to be implicated in many neurological disorders, including brain fog.  

 

The good news is the brain is responsive to inflammation management. Research shows a variety of natural compounds and botanicals have powerful anti-inflammatory effects in the brain.

 

These compounds and therapies to address the underlying cause of your brain fog-whether it is hypothyroidism, gluten, a hormone deficiency, or all three-can not only lift brain fog but also ensure better brain health and function for years to come.
