Broken Brain Epidemic and how to Fix it
An unbalanced broken brain is responsible for many mental diseases.
The result of those diseases in children, teenagers, adults and the elderly are usually untreated or not even discovered by mainstream medicine.
Most doctors aren’t capable of diagnosing most brain-related diseases, much less treat them or cure them.
Perhaps the main reason why mental disease is wrongfully treated or not treated at all is that brain health does not necessarily start from the brain itself, but from outside of it.
The lack of proper diagnosis and treatment causes the number of people with mental disabilities to rise out of control.
Broken brain count surpasses 1 billion
Today, that number stands at 1.1 billion patients. From those millions of people who are mentally ill, 1 in 6 are children who suffer from mental disorders.
Estimates show that 1 in 2 elderly are most likely suffering from mental disease and along with them, the global average is 1 in 4 people.
The current epidemic of brain disorders is what Dr. Mark Hyman calls the Epidemic of Broken Brains.
Hyman is a practicing physician with 10+ best selling books. His documentary shows how humanity, at least western populations arrived at the current state of mental imbalance.
During the documentary series, Hyman shows the assessment of several medical doctors who explain how normal-looking people are actually mentally ill and they got there.
More importantly, they explain how to attack and overcome the current epidemic of broken brains.
No, it is not through conventional medicine.
The documentary series promises to show how Alzheimer’s, Dementia, ADHD, Autism, Depression, Anxiety, and Brain Fog have common origins.
In its preview, Dr, Hyman also promises to show people steps to “optimize” their brain function and “reclaim” their mental health, energy and mental clarity.

The connection between the brain and the immune system
In a stunning discovery that overturns decades of textbook teaching, researchers at the University of Virginia School of Medicine have determined that the brain is directly connected to the immune system by vessels previously thought not to exist.
The fact that such vessels could have escaped detection when the lymphatic system has been so thoroughly mapped throughout the body is surprising on its own, but the true significance of the discovery lies in the effects it could have on the study and treatment of neurological diseases ranging from autism to Alzheimer’s disease to multiple sclerosis.
“Instead of asking, ‘How do we study the immune response of the brain?’ ‘Why do multiple sclerosis patients have the immune attacks?’ now we can approach this mechanistically.
Because the brain is like every other tissue connected to the peripheral immune system through meningeal lymphatic vessels,” said Jonathan Kipnis, PhD, professor in the UVA Department of Neuroscience and director of UVA’s Center for Brain Immunology and Glia (BIG).
“It changes entirely the way we perceive the neuro-immune interaction. We always perceived it before as something esoteric that can’t be studied. But now we can ask mechanistic questions.”
“We believe that for every neurological disease that has an immune component to it, these vessels may play a major role,” Kipnis said.
“Hard to imagine that these vessels would not be involved in a [neurological] disease with an immune component.”
The unexpected presence of the lymphatic vessels raises a tremendous number of questions that now need answers, both about the workings of the brain and the diseases that plague it. For example, take Alzheimer’s disease.
“In Alzheimer’s, there are accumulations of big protein chunks in the brain,” Kipnis said. “We think they may be accumulating in the brain because they’re not being efficiently removed by these vessels.”
He noted that the vessels look different with age, so the role they play in aging is another avenue to explore. And there’s an enormous array of other neurological diseases, from autism to multiple sclerosis, that must be reconsidered in light of the presence of something science insisted did not exist.
