There are millions of people who experience issues related to brain health - depression, attention issues, anxiety, forgetfulness, fatigue, and even chronic pain - -yet can’t figure out what’s causing their problems and can’t find any relief. They may have seen a myriad of doctors, many of whom do not take their complaints seriously, or worse, turn to the easy, often inappropriate fix of antidepressants or antianxiety medications. Traditional medications, supplements, or other therapies haven’t worked. No matter what their age - from children to teens or seniors - people and their loved ones are frustrated, scared, and confused by their continued poor health. Countless others display severe psychiatric symptoms that seem to come out of nowhere, ranging from tics, obsessive-compulsive behaviors and anxiety, to depression, bipolar-like mood swings, and even borderline personality disorder and suicidal ideas. Sometimes, the people affected are the only ones that notices a change to the way they think or feel, and they suffer in silence. Or, they reach out to try to get help, and are all too frequently misdiagnosed.      


Now, Dr. David Younger, a world-renowned physician, provides relief to these patients and their families. His diagnostic techniques and treatment protocols will help readers identify the true cause of their symptoms and put them on a clear path to healing so they no longer feel unbalanced, out of control, forgetful, and exhausted.      


The Autoimmune Brain connects common brain health symptoms to the changes in the immune system, and particularly bacterial, viral, and parasitic infections. In this book, Dr. Younger explains his groundbreaking research and adds a new component: how traumatic stress (whether physical or emotional) and genetics affects this same triad as inextricable factors in initiating disease and brain health symptoms. In fact, a change in personality, behavior, coping style, and one’s emotional state may be the first clue that there is a health problem brewing somewhere else in the body.
Based on Dr. Younger's groundbreaking work on the devastating effects of autoimmune diseases on the brain, this book gifts us with a practical and accessible path back to better health, even for those who are most severely compromised. A critical and welcome resource for providers and families striving to identify- and heal- the actual, underlying medical causes of thwarted attention, learning ability, mood stability, and overall well-being. This is gold.
David S. Younger, MD, is a world-renowned expert in neurology and the author of several medical books, as well as over 200 peer-reviewed articles, book chapters, and abstracts. His textbook, Motor Disorders 3rd Edition,  has become the standard textbook for medical trainees at New York University and Columbia University. He also holds Editorial Board memberships is a peer reviewer for a host of print and on-line medical scientific journals.
