Permeable blood brain barrier and gut barrier connected to inflammation and autoimmunity diseases is enough to make anyone’s head spin.
Dealing with these health conditions can be frightening and endless. Your body’s reaction to proteins and your immune response can be highly frustrating when you’re being instructed to follow “protocols” and standards of treatment.
If you or someone you love has felt betrayed living a standard healthy lifestyle only to fall prey to gut issues, autoimmune disease and declining cognition, you’re not alone.
Dr. Datis Kharrazian is a world-renowned functional medicine health care provider. He specializes in managing chronic diseases, autoimmunity and neurological problems. He treats his patients with non-pharmaceuticals, and is in extremely high demand from patients and other healthcare professionals wanting to learn his clinical models.
In this episode, Dr. Kharrazian is addressing the flaw with medical treatments that over standardize what people are experiencing and the causes. He’s explaining why giving blanket treatments and protocols can cause patients far worse health conditions than where they started.
