A 59 year old woman came in to see me complaining of loss of muscle tone, insomnia, and gut problems (inability to eat most foods), among other things. She said she'd been struggling with these things for 30 years and has seen a plethora of doctors. Several brain areas were found to have deficient signals. Although she has a way to go, she's really happy about the changes in her body and brain so far. After 2 weeks of treatment, she reported that she is not reacting to food as much. Also, she has gained 2 pounds and says her muscles are stronger. A 'brain swelling' sensation that she used to have is going away and she can fall asleep fairly easily now. She also noted when she came in that her eyes often feel like they can't move well and get 'stuck'. Now she says that after treatment her eyes feel normal and fluid. I expect these good changes to last longer and longer and her brain becomes more plastic.
Did you know that when you stick your tongue out, it should look pink, not white? Also, there should be no deep grooves or scalloped edges. Also, if a tongue looks like a map of the world, that is a sign that the body is full of inflammation. Oftentimes, what is going on in the tongue is also going on throughout the digestive tract. Since the gut and the brain are so closely linked communication-wise and health-wise, oftentimes the brain is inflamed when the gut is inflamed. All these things are related. Some of my patients actually tell me that they can feel their brain hurt after eating certain foods. Several of my patients begin care who start with white tongues. All of them improve! When you heal your brain, your gut improves. When you heal your gut, your brain function improves.
