Factors Contributing to Cognitive Decline
Memory loss, inability to focus, or having problems putting thoughts into words could all be signs of cognitive decline.

You might refer to this as a "brain fog," and as you get older, you might realize it happens to you more often than you'd like to admit.

But, there's a growing rate of brain fog happening amongst middle age groups. Most of this could be because of our toxic environment.

There are over 70,000 industrial chemicals in your environment and 1,000 new toxins are introduced every year. Even if you do your best to protect yourself from these chemicals, you can have up to 400-500 measurable levels of toxins in your bloodstream.

What are some of the major contributing factors to cognitive decline?
  • Oxidative stress
  • Inflammation
  • Hormonal Imbalance
Dr. Mike discusses what cognitive decline is, why it's happening at a growing rate, and factors that are contributing to your cognitive decline.
