Today, we’re talking about something that I think is fairly confident is universal for most of you who are tuning in — and that is this concept of having a busy brain. How do we shut off the constant firing? The input? The inboxes?! All of these pieces of information that our brains are handling on a daily basis?
To help facilitate this conversation there are a lot of experts that we could havebrought on, but I believe there is no better expert suited to this discussion than Dr. Romie Mushtaq! Dr. Romie is an expert on brain health and a triple board-certified neurologist. As someone who is traditionally trained, Dr. Romie has been frustrated by what she has seen over and over again in clinical practice when it comes to the intersection of our hormonal health as women and how that influences the performance of our brains. In particular, she is focused on functional and integrative medicine, the intersection of our hormones and our brains, and how the choices that we make on a daily basis influence what’s happening above our shoulders.
In this episode, we’re approaching this conversation from an entirely different angle than we ever have before. Dr. Romie breaks down the concept of a “busy brain,” how we can begin to address it, what a “sensory reset” is and how it can lead us down the path of “turning off” our brains, and everything we need to know about the patterns of inflammation in the brain and how they show up.
This is a deeply fascinating conversation and I cannot wait for you all to tune in!
