Leaky Brain Syndrome

Although many people have heard of Leaky Bowel Syndrome, few have heard of Leaky Brain Syndrome.

I coined this term when I became aware of the damaging effects on the blood-brain barrier (BBB) from the accumulation of ammonia in the brain. Ammonia in the brain is a primary cause of neurological and psychological hypersensitivity.

Ammonia alters the permeability of the BBB, enabling larger molecules to cross, such as common amino-acids, causing cerebral allergies. Ammonia-induced Leaky Brain Syndrome is one of the primary causes of Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, Cognitive dysfunction, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and a myriad of other chronic conditions.
