I’ve been watching a new online series of Dr. Mark Hyman’s called Broken Brain. Dr. Hyman works in functional medicine – which aims to treat the cause of disease – not the symptoms, and is famous for debunking the myth that carbs are better for us than fat.

Turns out the health of our body directly affects the health of our brain. Inflammation in the body, much of which is caused by insulin resistance – the cause of type 2 diabetes – causes inflammation in the brain, which in turn leads to dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinsons, MS and other diseases.

It’s a great informative series, Hyman interviews brain experts, neurologists and nutritionists, and it’s well worth watching. The quick take away is – cut the sugar, refined carbs, grains and processed foods, get more healthy fat and fiber in your diet, more sleep and less exposure to toxins.

But, do yourself a favor and spare the time to watch the series – http://brokenbrain.com/trailer/. Sign up now, there’s only 8 days left to watch.
