Everyone is exposed to mold on a practically daily basis. How can it really cause so many different symptoms as functional MD’s claim? Over time, I intend to answer those questions for a long list of symptoms, but for today, let’s look at the brain. Several studies indicate that our delicate neurologic system does suffer when mold toxins get too high.
Everyone wants to talk about the gut-brain axis these days for good reason. So many brain diseases are being found to have contributing factors originating in the intestinal tract that other are searching for more connections. Mostly we have a lot of correlations, meaning we know there is a connection, but don’t have a mechanism to explain the connection.
Honestly, this is not shocking. Multiple studies have already revealed a list of benefits from tea drinking. In this case, researchers from the National University of Singapore reported what appear to be beneficial structural changes in the brain of human subjects who drink tea on a near daily basis. Prior studies had focused on neuropsychological testing but not actual structural or functional imaging techniques.
The day may come when dentists enter the field of Alzheimer’s therapy thanks to this breaking research. While past studies have linked the mouth bacteria, porphyromonas gingivalis, heart disease, this study ties several convincing lines of evidence to implicate this bacteria in the development of Alzheimer’s disease.
This particular bacteria can either colonize our mouths or dig deeper and contribute to gingivitis (gum inflammation) in a large percentage of the population. When we brush our teeth or eat,
Scientists have long known that the cerebellum, that smaller chunk of brain sitting at the back of the skull under the “all-knowing” cortex played a central role in coordinating movement. Ballerinas, musicians, and sports stars among others have spent countless hours of their lives to hone their cerebellar coordination to become experts of motion.
Express Subway from Skull to Brain —
A number of thrilling discoveries have arisen in recent months from the field of neuroimmunology. First researchers stumbled upon the brain’s lymphatic system despite believing for decades that none existed. Now researchers uncovered a mechanism for immune cells in the bone marrow of the skull to reach the brain tissue directly.
