Episode 130: Lyme Brain and Neuroinflammation

Dr. Kevin Conners

Cindy Kennedy, FNP, is joined by author Dr. Kevin Conners for a discussion about brain inflammation, where it originates and how to improve it. The underlying cause of brain fog is inflammation. Lyme disease, toxins, and autoimmunity can all play a role in this debilitating symptom. Some people describe brain fog as “thinking through mud” or a true disconnected, hazy feeling, making simple tasks difficult to accomplish.

Dr. Conners graduated with his doctorate from Northwestern Health Sciences University in 1986 (though he practices only under his Pastoral Medical License) and has been studying alternative cancer care for over 20 years. He also holds AMA Fellowships (through the American Academy of Anti-aging Medicine) in Anti-Aging Medicine, Regenerative and Functional Medicine, and Integrative Cancer Therapy. He is also in the process of earning the same in Botanical Medicine.

Dr. Conners has authored numerous books including, “Stop Fighting Cancer and Start Treating the Cause,” “Cancer Can’t Kill You if You’re Already Dead,” “Help, My Body is Killing Me,” “Beating Chronic Lyme,” “You’re Crazy – and other foolish things doctors tell patients needing brain therapy,” “Lyme Brain,” “The 3 Phases of Lyme,” “Is Hell the Only Difference,” and “23 Steps to Freedom.”
