Is Your Thinking “Broken?”

Is Your Thinking “Broken?”

Is Your Thinking Broken?

“Effortless, sharp, quick, and accurate.”

What if this were an accurate description of your thinking, memory, and concentration?

What Happened to Your Thinking?

Several things can damage your cognitive function:

Here’s a list of the most common problems:

Brain fog: Trouble with attention, memory, and slowed thinking.

Brain Fog often stems from:

  • Hormone problems from perimenopause and menopause.
  • Thyroid problems.
  • Digestive problems (your gut is directly connected to your brain) READ ABOUT THE GUT-BRAIN CONNECTION HERE.
  • Allergies, especially food allergies.

Memory: Age often affects memory, although this can be overcome.

Memory problems often stem from:

  • Hormones in perimenopause and menopause.
  • Nutritional deficiencies, especially essential fatty acids (such as found in many fish, flaxseeds, and almonds), B vitamins, and several other nutrients.
  • Food allergies.
  • Digestive problems.
  • Metals toxicity (mercury, lead, copper, aluminum, etc.).

Concentration: Do you find that your mind wanders, even when you are trying to do a specific task? Have you meant to do something, even started to do it, but found yourself doing something else with no recollection of what happened?

Concentration problems are commonly related to:

  • Food allergies.
  • Nutritional deficiencies.
  • Digestive problems.
  • Metals toxicity (mercury, lead, copper, aluminum, etc.).

Cognitive Processing: Do you have difficulty reading, following instructions or get frustrated easily? I see this a lot in children, often diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD).

Cognitive Processing issues often relate to:

  • Food allergies.
  • Immune stress made worse by sugar and simple carbohydrates in diet.
  • Digestive problems.
  • Metals toxicity (mercury, lead, copper, aluminum, etc.).

Thinking Distractions

Being anxious or depressed can cause your thinking to be much less efficient and effective.

Depression tends to slow down thought processes and prevent you from thinking of creative and positive solutions to problems.

  • What depression is NOT: chemical imbalances in your brain. This theory, fabricated to sell antidepressant drugs, has been completely disproven (see article here).
  • Often depression is caused by having long-term chronic health conditions with no real hope of a solution. If you are convinced that your health will prevent you from reaching your goals, depression can be a natural emotion to feel.

Anxiety can be very distracting. It’s hard to be “sharp as a tack” when you’re freaking out, and often for no good reason.

  • Your adrenal glands produce hormones that prevent stress from damaging your body. If the adrenals are fatigued, stress can cause physical reactions and even panic attacks.
  • Adrenal glands are stressed by poor sleep, allergies, eating sugar and refined carbs, not eating enough protein, alcohol, junk foods, and life stress.

I frequently help my patients to heal their adrenal glands in my clinic. It’s among the most rewarding activities, as healthier adrenals can change your life!

I have had high levels of success with depression by helping patients to improve their physical health. Hormones, blood sugar, and digestive problems are the top health issues that also could improve depression.

How to Improve Your Thinking

Did you notice that the thinking problems listed earlier in this article are caused by physical health problems?

Memory, concentration, and brain fog are caused by digestive problems, allergies, nutritional deficiencies, toxins and hormone problems. These are problems that have solutions!

You don’t have to live with brain fog, concentration, or memory issues.

Your thinking could become effortless, sharp, quick, and accurate!

I see this every day in my clinic. Probably a third of the success stories patients write mention memory, concentration, brain fog, anxiety, or depression.

Many of these successes are major, life-changing improvements!

Solutions: What to Do?

In most of these cases the body became unable to maintain and heal itself completely.

As time goes on, additional stress and damage build up, and this overwhelming stress became symptoms, like anxiety, depression, brain fog, concentration problems or other “broken” thinking.

Many layers of complex damage prevent these problems from resolving by medical treatment. The only successful resolution of this problem is to address the primary cause: the body’s inability to heal itself.

My treatment programs address just this. I work with patients to reduce stress, supply raw materials, and eliminate barriers to healing. But your body healing itself is what creates 100% of my results.

One Accurate Test is Worth 1,000 “Expert Opinions”

The best solution in many cases of cognitive health problems is:

Get tested to determine what factors are preventing your body from healing.

If you don’t do this, you will be guessing, trying one thing after another to see what might work, researching the internet endlessly, and finding little that actually helps.

A word of caution: Discovering the cause(s) of your health problem is just the first step. You’ll also have to do something effective to assist your body in regaining its ability to heal.

If you have a stubborn/long-term health problem, there is no single treatment, drug, supplement, or diet that will solve it.

Patient Successes

ADHD Label and Surgery Avoided for Child

Awesome success! I’ve got to tell you that I just came back from my son’s first parent-teacher conference, and I found that he was rated #1 in his class! This is a child who would not let anyone touch him. He had so many allergies that he could not concentrate. He was getting ready to be labeled as ADHD and have his tonsils and adenoids removed. We waited on the surgery, avoided testing that would have labeled him as learning disabled, and did exactly what you told us. Now he can even breathe without snoring at night. I love this place! Everyone here is determined to give each patient the best possible care. Every child who has an attention, behavior, dependent or medical issue should be here. Thank You! —R.J.

Brain Fog is Gone!

The frustration of brain fog is over. Alternative Health Atlanta has brought the sunshine back. The beautiful thing is… when I try to remember what I just forgot… I do! With 5 kids, a home, a husband, and an extended family, memory is worth millions. Thanks for lifting the fog. — S.B.

Is There Any Hope for Women’s Health?

Is There Any Hope for Women’s Health?

Is Being a Healthy Woman Hopeless?

It goes something like this: “I’m prescribing you birth control pills to control your (fill in the female problem).”

Millions of American women have heard some version of this script from their doctors. The message is clear: many female health problems have no real medical solutions. Oral hormones do not fix the underlying causes for problems such as:

  • Heavy, painful cycles
  • No cycle
  • Irregular cycle
  • PMS
  • Severe mood swings or depression with cycle
  • Bloating, back pain, acne, breast tenderness, diarrhea, constipation, weight gain, fatigue with cycle
  • Headaches or migraines related to cycle
  • Uterine fibroids
  • PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)
  • Endometriosis
  • Abnormal PAP smear
  • Severe cramping
  • Ongoing bleeding or spotting

Solutions do exist for all the above problems. However, the real solutions are not treatments for these problems but rather resolutions for their causes.

If you find that statement hard to believe, that real resolutions for the causes exist, you might be experiencing hopelessness.

It might be time for an entirely different approach.

Causes of Female Problems

Despite what your doctor may tell you, your female problems are not caused by a deficiency of birth control pills.

Female problems are caused by the same stress factors that can create many other health problems in both women and men.

  • Viruses, bacteria, and fungus. These infectious agents can cause damage to cells and tissue, imbalances in pH, and interfere with hormone function.
  • Food sensitivities. One of the most common reasons for female problems, sensitivities can cause stress to hormone glands, nutritional deficiencies, and overall systemic stress.
  • Environmental toxins. Your hormone system relies on a delicate balance of many chemical compounds. These are susceptible to interference by many toxins in the environment and food.
  • Diet problems. Overeating sugar, insufficient protein, insufficient calories, inadequate nutrition (vegetables and fruits), or too much junk food can accelerate damage from viruses, bacteria, and especially fungus. A poor diet can cause systemic stress and inhibit the immune system, making it increasingly difficult for your body to heal.
  • Birth control pills. One common cause of female problems is birth control pills, especially when a woman has been on them for decades.

Do you find it ironic that the “cure” (birth control pills) can also cause health problems?

An excellent description of the effect of birth control pills is from Dr. Kate Placzek, “Birth control pills interfere with a woman’s key function —her ability to have natural hormonal production — stealing her inherent and necessary rhythms, and making her infertile, by substituting manufactured chemical mimics for her real hormones.”

Solutions: What to Do?

In most cases of female health problems, your body has become unable to maintain and heal completely.

As time goes on, additional stress and damage build up, and this overwhelming stress becomes the symptoms you are feeling.

Many layers of complex damage prevent these problems from resolving by medical treatment. The only successful resolution of this problem is to address the primary cause: your body can’t completely heal itself.

My treatment programs address just this: getting your body to recover its ability to heal itself. I work with patients to reduce stress, supply raw materials, and eliminate barriers to healing. Your body healing itself creates 100% of my results.

Female Problems Resolving!!

I have had 25 years of hormone problems that are finally resolving! After a late menarche that was finally initiated with progesterone injections, I had very irregular cycles for my entire life. I had infertility that was nonresponsive to fertility treatments and now at age 42 was suffering from menopausal symptoms for several months. With help from Alternative Health Atlanta, I have been able to restore normal menstrual cycles and the peri-menopausal symptoms are of course almost 100% subsided. In addition, severe adrenal stress is now healing itself as well. My goodness, I have been chronically fatigued for years and now I’m thrilled to have more energy and much higher productivity. Thank you to Dr. Billiot!!! — L.H.

Known Causes of Fatigue

Several physical conditions are known to cause fatigue. The good news is that if you have one of these conditions, you’ll have an excellent idea of what is causing your fatigue. Not sure if you have one of these? Read on; there’s more about that.

1: Anemia. This creates a lack of oxygen in your blood. You may get dizzy when you stand up, have brain fog, and get heart palpitations.

2: Diabetes. Blood sugar fluctuations require a great deal of energy, leaving you with little left for your life.

3: Thyroid. The metabolism master hormone gland. It dictates how much energy will be manufactured by every cell in your body. If it is stressed, you may have brain fog, exhaustion, and lack of motivation.

4: Heart Disease. If your heart isn’t pumping blood normally you can be severely fatigued. The tiredness will get worse as you exercise. You may also get shortness of breath and swelling in your arms and legs.

5: Sleep Problems. Insomnia, sleep apnea or just bad sleep habits can build up and lead to chronic tiredness and feeling sleepy.

6: Menopause / Prostate Problems. Having interrupted sleep from frequent urination, night sweats, and other symptoms of low hormone levels can cause severe brain fog, memory problems, lack of energy, and general misery.

7: Depression. Severe stress that goes along with depression can cause hormone and neurotransmitter imbalances. You may have trouble sleeping or wake too early and can’t get back to sleep.

8: Long Covid. This one has a wide variety of symptoms that are not yet understood. Fatigue is a common long-Covid symptom.

Even if you can identify which of these problems is causing your fatigue, there’s still the question of what can you do about this?

Some of these problems have real solutions, but most of them have only long-term drug-based symptom management available.

In most cases, the drugs used for symptoms won’t do much, if anything, for your fatigue or lack of energy.

Unknown Causes of Fatigue

So, what if you’re exhausted but don’t have any of the above health problems? Now what?

You’re in the same situation as people with diabetes, thyroid, menopause, depression, and long Covid. No medical solutions to these health conditions would resolve the fatigue associated with them.

The only possible solution in any of these cases is:

Get tested to determine what factors are preventing your body from healing.

If you don’t do this, you will be guessing, trying one thing after another to see what might work, researching the internet endlessly, and finding little that actually helps.

A word of caution: Discovering the cause(s) of your health problem is just the first step. You’ll also have to do something effective to assist your body in regaining its ability to heal.

Energy Increases!

When I first started the program at AHA I was tired, weak, lethargic and ached all over. In 2-3 weeks, many of the symptoms improved and I started getting more energy and less muscle aches and sleeping almost through the night. Now at 6 weeks I’ve regained a lot of energy – very few aches and pains and I’ve lost 25lbs. This is attributed to cutting out diet sodas, refined carbs and having protein shakes and I’ve also been drinking lots of water. — G.C.
