We don’t often think of brain health as being affected by what we eat. I have clients say to me, “I’m just getting older, my brain isn’t what it used to be” or “I just don’t have the memory that I used to”. Many times, inflammation is at the root of their deteriorating brain health, not just aging. For me, I want to educate and empower people to understand that it’s not just aging, and that certain foods and lifestyle habits have an immense impact on your brain health.
