I get really happy when the people in my online program celebrate their results. This is a direct cut and paste of an email I received today, word for word. (1/12) #share #email #testimonial #brainfogrecovery #brainfog #health #experience #hr #software #energy #work
Who are you and what do you do?
"I am a 24-year-old cis woman who currently works at an HR software company." (2/12)
What were the brain fog symptom challenges you were suffering with before you began? "I struggled with concentration, which impacted my ability to focus on my work during the day. (3/12)
When I was out of the house and socializing, I had trouble concentrating on what I was doing and was constantly tired. I also experienced low energy levels at work. Afterwards, I would often be exhausted and have little energy to do anything else other than stay in bed." (4/12)
How has the Brain Fog Recovery Program positively impacted you? "It has helped me realize that managing my brain fog is doable. I don’t have to accept that my brain fog is going to be a constant factor in my life; I can take the steps I need in order to reduce my symptoms. (5/12)
It’s also informed about other factors that impact my health and energy (ex: minerals, supplements, etc.), which has helped me be more knowledgeable about my health. (6/12)
It’s also helpful knowing that there’s a community of other folks who have (and still are) experiencing similar symptoms to my own, so that I don’t have the feeling that I’m alone in my experiences." (7/12)
What are the tangible results you achieved? "I achieved better focus. Now at work I don’t often experience debilitating waves of brain fog that prevent my ability to concentrate on what I’m doing and on who I’m interacting with. (8/12)
It’s also given me better energy as I can dedicate my energy both during and outside of work to the different tasks of my day." (9/12)
What would you tell someone who is considering investing in the Brain Fog Recovery Program? "I would tell them to have a game plan for going through the program’s different components and to schedule in advance. (10/12)
I would also say that it’s worth it, but you should also know that there’ll be times where it will be difficult to commit to the program (for both internal and external reasons) so it’s ok to give yourself grace throughout the program." (11/12)

Some of you are unclear about what a serious sign of cognitive decline actually looks like. So let's have a thread! 🧵(1/22)
A lot of you are having symptoms of cognitive decline that are being ignored in favor of a depression diagnosis. But unfortunately, an SSRI is not a treatment for the early stages of cognitive decline. And it certainly won't save your brain. (2/22)
Some of you ladies have cognitive decline going on that is blamed on having "menopause brain," and while that might be a factor for some, HRT is not going to be a sufficient treatment for the underlying factors driving it for most. (3/22)

Insulin receptors and IGF-1 receptors, along with their signaling partners, are found throughout the brain. I think this needs a thread. 🧵(1/13)
IGF-1 receptors are involved in important #brain processes, including neuronal growth and survival, regulation of synaptic plasticity, and modulation of #neurotransmitter release. They are implicated in neuroprotection and #cognitive function. (2/13) #science #neuroscience
Many of you are familiar with insulin, but maybe you don't know well enough what its important roles are in the brain. Insulin affects neurotransmitter channel activity, brain cholesterol synthesis, and mitochondrial function. (3/13) #mitochondria

Dementia is a major public health challenge, affecting around 55 million people worldwide. Unfortunately, it's expected that the number of people living with dementia will increase by 50% over the next decade. (1/10)
Dementia doesn't just appear suddenly one day. It sneaks up on you. There are symptoms of brain fog in the form of mood disturbance and reduced cognitive function years before a diagnosis of dementia is provided. (2/10)
Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia, characterized by memory loss, impaired judgment, and other cognitive difficulties. (3/10)

Let's explore the outcomes of a study that explored the neurobiological evidence in support of improvement in depression with a ketogenic diet and find out what underlying biological mechanisms they uncovered through in vitro and in vivo studies.🧵(1/29) #depression #ketogenic
Basically, they did a literature review from August 2021 to January 2022. Here's what they found. (2/29) #research
People with #depression may have changes in #glucose #metabolism in the brain. The #ketogenic diet boosts cellular #energy metabolism by raising #ketone bodies and replacing glucose as the main fuel source. (3/29)

Psychotherapy and medications are considered effective treatments for Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). Except for about 30%. (1/5) #depression #psychiatry #psychotherapy
For 30% of patients with #depression symptoms persist even after multiple treatment attempts. (2/5) #medication #psychotherapy #psychiatry
And for those in which medications work sufficiently, there can still be the problem of significant side effects. (3/5) #depression #medications #psychiatry hindawi.com/journals/drt/2…

Did you know that people with mental illness tend to die earlier than the general population? The lifespan reduction can be anywhere from 7 to 30 years. (1/4)
Recent evidence from large population studies of over 7 million people shows that people with all mental disorders are more likely to die early deaths. Men are losing 10 years of life, while women are losing 7 years. (2/4) #womenshealth #menshealth
Contrary to popular belief, suicide is not the primary cause of death among people with mental illness. The main causes are cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, and dementia. (3/4) researchsquare.com/article/rs-184…
