Brain Not Working? Minor Symptoms Now Could Mean MS, Alzheimer's, or Parkinson's Later

Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) June 19, 2013

Brain not working? Functional medicine pioneer Datis Kharrazian, DHSc, DC, MS, explains why such seemingly minor brain problems as brain fog, memory loss, fatigue, depression, anxiety, or concussions are vital red flags. They indicate the brain may be degenerating—or aging—too quickly, raising the risk for multiple sclerosis (MS), Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, stroke, and other neurological diseases. Why Isn’t My Brain Working?, released in June 2013 by Elephant Press is now available online at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

The World Health Organization recently predicted cases of dementia will more than double in the next 30 years in the U.S., an unheard of explosion for a chronic disease. Most cases of dementia take root decades before symptoms manifest, and are caused by diet and lifestyle choices. The same can be said for other neurological diseases, including multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s, and stroke. Environmental chemicals and chronic stress are other factors that quietly and insidiously rob the brain of function over the years until one day it’s too late to turn things around.

“Modern diets, a stressful lifestyle, environmental toxins, and head injuries all take their toll on the brain,” says Kharrazian. “They accelerate degeneration, causing symptoms that are red flags for increased risk of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and other brain disorders. Luckily, the research gives us plenty of sound strategies to relieve symptoms and lower risk.”

A decline in brain function doesn’t just happen to seniors—brain disorders are on the rise for young and old alike. The good news is the brain is extremely adaptable and wants to get well. Learn how to feed and care for it.

Why isn't my brain working? Common signs and symptoms of brain degeneration include:

  •     Memory loss
  •     Brain fog
  •     Depression, anxiety
  •     Difficulty learning
  •     Lack of motivation, drive, or passion
  •     Tire easily working, reading, driving, etc.
  •     Poor focus and concentration
  •     Fatigue in response to certain foods and chemicals

Why Isn’t My Brain Working? teaches easy-to-understand strategies to save and improve brain function. Learn how simple diet and lifestyle changes and nutritional therapy, based on cutting-edge scientific research, can profoundly impact brain health and quality of life.

Published in June of 2013 and available online on Amazon and Barnes and Noble, Why Isn’t My Brain Working? draws from more than 1,000 scientific references for safe, simple, and truly effective solutions. For more information, visit
