Functional and holistic medicine practitioners are seeing an explosion in disorders related to inflammation and autoimmunity caused by too many dietary or environmental toxins present. Inflammation can affect any part of your body, but it often takes root in the brain; some big triggers of neurological inflammation are gluten and dairy. However, if neurological damage shows up on conventional medical testing, doctors often cannot make a diagnosis based on those environmental or dietary causes. This is where functional neurology can help!
Patients struggling to recover from brain injuries and inflammation are told nothing can be done when, in fact, research shows nutritional therapy and brain rehabilitation strategies can help them recover their brain health. Symptoms that you may have inflammation in your brain include:
