Signs + Symptoms of Brain Inflammation (Encephalitis)
Signs of Brain inflammation are often the hidden cause of “brain problems” as we age. Maybe some of these sound familiar.
Are you experiencing anxiety or depression?
What about brain fog, poor memory, or lack of focus? Have you gained a few pounds over the years that, no matter how little you eat or how much you exercise, won’t go away?
Though these issues are very diverse, research shows they may have the same underlying cause — brain inflammation.
Encephalitis Symptoms, Causes, and Signs of Brain Inflammation
Sometimes the signs and symptoms of Encephalitis are more severe, and might include:
Confusion, agitation or hallucinations.
Loss of sensation or paralysis in certain areas of the face or body.
Problems with speech or hearing.
Loss of consciousness (including coma)
The type of brain inflammation that usually makes the news is that caused by viral or bacterial meningitis, a dangerous and even deadly condition.
Fortunately, meningitis is rare. A much more common cause of neuro-inflammation are toxins and other dangerous substances entering the brain.
These substances activate microglia cells, triggering inflammation. And unlike dangerous viral and bacterial brain infections, this type of inflammation is chronic.
You can carry it in your brain for years, even decades. Oh, you’ll have symptoms, but you’ll probably write them off as just a normal part of aging.
What are some of these symptoms?
A study published in the Journal of Neuroscience found that brain fog, poor concentration, memory issues — you know, the stuff most of us start feeling as we age — may actually be caused by brain inflammation.
Trouble with Concentration or Memory Issues
Multiple studies have also shown that this can even contribute to Alzheimer’s Disease.
And there is plenty of real-world experience to indicate that brain inflammation is linked to Alzheimer’s Disease. Our dear friend Jean, once restricted to the Alzheimer’s ward of a nursing home, is now healthy, happy, and free of dementia.
She reduced her brain inflammation by making some common-sense changes to her diet and by taking her daily dose of Vitaae.
Weight Gain Despite Efforts at Diet and Exercise
It might surprise you to learn that the hypothalamus in your brain controls your metabolism and setpoint weight.
Hormones such as leptin and ghrelin constantly send signals to your brain about how much fat you have and when to stop eating. But these signals cannot reach your hypothalamus if your brain is inflamed.
The inevitable result is weight gain. So, it’s really not your age causing your weight gain. It may be brain inflammation!
Increased Levels of Anxiety and/or Depression
This is a big problem for many people. According to the National Institute of Health, over 19 million Americans aged 18-54 suffer an anxiety disorder, and 7.1 percent (around 17.3 million) have suffered a major depressive episode.
Though anxiety and depression are often attributed to an imbalance of brain chemicals, an increasing number of studies indicate that neurological inflammation may also play a role.
A study published in the Nephrology Journal, for instance, found that brain inflammation increased levels of anxiety and depression in participants.
Brain Inflammation: Many Symptoms, One Solution
Though the signs of neurological inflammation are many, there is one breakthrough solution that thousands are discovering — supporting your body to reduce or eliminate these “brain problems” that are often just considered part of aging.
And it’s much easier than you think. In fact, it’s pretty darn easy when you take Vitaae!
