Brain Wash – Inflammation Leads to Unhealthy Habits, Low Motivation & Poor Decision Making

By Dr. Michael Ruscio

If you are looking for more motivation to make healthy changes and find themselves struggling with compliance, Brain Wash by Dr. Perlmutter is a fantastic resource. In this episode, Dr. Perlmutter discusses how modern day unhealthy choices will create this over-reliance of the amygdala in the brain at the expense of the prefrontal cortex - the amygdala is more emotional based and the prefrontal cortex is more logic or reasoning based. For those of us who are stuck in this cycle of making bad choices, going to bed too late, drinking too much, eating unhealthy food, not exercising, there may be this unhealthy habit related stimulus in which inflammation may be a main driver that causes this skewing of what parts of the brain are activated. The book helps one better understand what the source of some of these bad habits are and what one can do to change them. https://drruscio.com/?p=56009 My book Healthy Gut, Healthy You is available at https://drruscio.com/getgutbook/ Looking for more?
