When things sound too good to be true, it bears investigating. That’s likely why you found your way to this page. We have been discussing Dr. Mark Hyman’s new docuseries that offer the ability to heal, and even reverse devastating brain illnesses. It’s called Broken Brain. Hoax? All signs point to no, this is the real thing.
Broken Brain Hoax? No Way
It is easy to see why anyone investigating the Broken Brain docuseries put out by Dr. Mark Hyman and his team might come to suspect that something is up. After all, the way we commonly understand mental health and acuity is in a very binary manner. Either you have it, or you don’t. You are born with a fixed set of hardware (or brainpower) and that’s that. If later in life you succumb to brain diseases like dementia or Alzheimer’s, well it was in the cards and there is nothing you can do about it.
The problem with that thinking is that it is wrong. Research shows that the brain is constantly adapting, healing, and enhancing, so long as the right conditions are met. Neuroplasticity is recognized, the nature of degenerative brain diseases better understood. That means that what we fear, the crippling paralysis that comes with the belief that we cannot do anything to help ourselves is unfounded!
As Dr. Hyman lays out in the series, there are a number of different things anyone can engage in to improve their current brain health, to prevent the possibility of brain dysfunction.
How to Fix Broken Brains
If Broken Brain isn’t a hoax, as we attest it certainly is not, then what is it? As mentioned, it is the layout of a health plan that will see improved brain health, faster function and prevent disastrous degenerative diseases.
Dr. Hyman creates a plan that consists of exercise, brain foods, nutrition supplements and more to proof the brain. He and the numerous experts on the docuseries are able to do this by examining hereto unknown connections between the body and brain. The second episode, in fact, is all about this, labeled ‘The Gut-Brain Connection.’
A leader in the field discussing the microbiome which is to say the gut and the hundreds of thousands of signals sent back and forth between them, that the two are much more connected than ever thought.
Why Trust Dr. Hyman?
According to his own site,
“Dr. Hyman is a practicing family physician, a ten-time #1 New York Times bestselling author, and an internationally recognized leader, speaker, educator, and advocate in his field. He is the Director the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine. He is also the founder and medical director of The UltraWellness Center, chairman of the board of the Institute for Functional Medicine, a medical editor of The Huffington Post, and was a regular medical contributor on many television shows including CBS This Morning, Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN, and The View, Katie and The Dr. Oz Show.”
In addition to those lengthy credentials, the other key piece of backing for Dr. Hyman on this subject is addressed right there in the first episode. He lived through it!
Dr. Hyman has suffered, struggled, and lived through this experience himself. He went from a fully functioning doctor, dictating out dozens of patients charts flawlessly to his ability crippled seemingly overnight. His mental systems broke down under a number of different assaults that he was not even aware of. It was this massive, system-wide attack that leads to the symptoms of a broken brain.
Like so many others, he too went doctor to doctor looking for the diagnosis and treatment that would find his health returning. But nothing worked. He’d go to Doctor A, get pills for depression, then Doctor B who thought it was anxiety so a pill for that. With a list of medications as long as your arm and still no relief, it is hard to have hope that you can ever be better.
That’s what spurred Dr. Hyman into this research. He needed to find the answer for what ailed him, since no one else seemed to have an answer.
Is Broken Brain For You?
If your brain is functioning correctly and well you will have a sense of clarity, optimism, and vitality. If you are missing even one of those factors, it is entirely possible you are suffering from some symptoms of a broken brain, like so many others.
The difference now is we have found the path of healing for brain health and Dr. Hyman’s Broken Brain (hoax it is not!) lays out the method for anyone to get started. And better yet? Doctors and insurance don’t need to recommend and clear it. These are actionable steps you can take now.
