47: Dr. Suzanne Gazda - Brain on Fire: Why chronic inflammation is driving unprecedented levels of neurological and psychiatric illness
Renowned Functional Medicine Neurologist Dr. Suzanne Gazda is at the forefront of treating neurological disorders, from neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and Multiple Sclerosis, to neurodevelopmental disorders such as Autism and ADD and has also become a specialist in Long Covid and its neurological effects. She completed her residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center, and is the founder of the Neurology Institute of San Antonio (NISA). Dedicated to patient care since 1989, having worked extensively with Hope for Humans charity in Uganda on the treatment of neurological diseases, and trained in functional medicine, Dr. Gazda has a unique and incredibly diverse perspective and experience, enabling her to approach neurological illness from a whole body and whole brain perspective, diagnosing and treating the root cause of neurological disorders.
In this in-depth interview she focuses on how to find and treat the biological and environmental root causes of neurological disorders (MS, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer's Disease, Autism, ADD, etc) and psychiatric symptoms (depression, anxiety, OCD, etc), rather than just treating their symptoms. She explains how immune reactions–to infections, mould, chronic stress, toxins, poor diet, EMF, etc–produce neuroinflammation, which is the major cause of all neurological diseases. She also explains why Covid poses the biggest threat to neurological and psychological health humanity has ever faced. In this fascinating interview, she outlines how we can reduce and prevent chronic inflammation to safeguard our brain health through simple ‘pillars of health’ solutions.
