Neuroinflammation: An Important Insight into Brain Health

Neuroinflammation is a chronic inflammation of the central nervous system and has long been studied for its connection to the development and progression of Multiple Sclerosis. However, new research is increasingly finding that not only are many cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia related to neuroinflammation, but classic mental diseases such as depression, as well as autism, ADD/ADHD may also be connected to brain inflammation. 

Recent research from Japan's Kyushu University Medical School and Saga University have been revealing that many mental disorders are produced by inflammation involving the microglia cells of the brain. The damage of neurons results in sustained activation of the microglial cells and recruitment of other immune cells into the brain. When brain cells are damaged the microglia work harder to repair the damage and in the process, produce a variety of inflammatory factors which results in further damage to the neurons in the brain and central nervous system. Ultimately, the increase in the production of inflammatory molecules in the brain potentially results in neurodegenerative diseases. 

Current understanding of the causes of neuroinflammation include: neurotoxins, autoimmunity, head trauma, aging, pathogens, and decreased vascular integrity.  

Learing Objectives:

  • Understanding what neuroinflammation is
  • Overview of the driving forces behind neuroinflammation
  • Review of key treatment targets linked to neuroinflammation: encompassing correcting mitochondrial dysfunction, downregulating inflammation and oxidative and nitrosative stress, enhancing neuroprotection and neuroplasticity, and achieving neurotransmitter regulation
  • The importance of the gut to brain health
  • The connection of neuroinflammation to complex brain disorders such as: Depression, ADD/ADHD Autism, Dementia and Alzheimer’s
  • Review of appropriate nutrition and key herbs and how they can help
