Chalene’s brain scans at the Amen Clinic
Chalene took a holistic approach to curing her brain, which was “fried” due to years of not sleeping enough, too much stress. Her scans looked like that of a drug user (despite her super clean lifestyle as a fitness expert). Gut healing protocols, ample sleep, supplements and an overhaul on her diet, reversed the path that had her headed towards early Alzheimer’s disease.
Have you been super forgetful lately, losing your keys all the time? Does your brain feel foggy when you are trying to complete a simple task, like you can’t think clearly? Do your joints hurt? Have you been struggling with weight loss? These things may seem unrelated, but these symptoms indicate a damaged digestive system. Those deficiencies within the gut break down the brain-gut connection needed for optimal health and longevity.

Big time! Having a damaged gut, commonly referred to as “leaky gut syndrome,” causes more than just problems with digestion. The entire body suffers if the gut isn’t functioning optimally. And guess what? 80% of the population has leaky gut! They just don’t know it. So, how do you know if your symptoms are caused by a leaky gut? Listen and learn how the brain-gut connection heals!
