Uric Acid

Scientific literature is bursting with evidence that elevated uric acid levels lie at the root of many pervasive health conditions, but mainstream medicine for the most part remains unaware of this connection. This is especially alarming because a large number of Americans don’t know they are suffering from increased levels, putting them at risk for developing or exacerbating potentially life-threatening illnesses.

Uric Acid Frequently Asked Questions

How have your dietary recommendations changed over the years?
Grain Brain represents my interpretation of the most leading edge science related to the roles of nutrition and other lifestyle factors in brain health, functionality, and resistance to disease. This dedicated review of current science, coupled with my day to day experience in applying this information in clinical practice dealing with a vast array of neurological conditions as well as my personal interactions with leading scientists, clinicians and researchers  from around the world have provided the resource base for writing Grain Brain. As I have been involved in exploring and reporting on the powerful role of nutrition in the brain health arena over the past twenty years I have witnessed an ongoing evolution in the nutritional science toward better and better refinement of the core messages. And this is why the fundamental tenets of my message have evolved as well. Dietary recommendations found in my previous books including, The Better Brain Book, Raise a Smarter Child by Kindergarten, and Power Up Your Brain - The Neuroscience of Enlightenment  were based on the very best information available to me at the time. Clearly, the recommendations found in Grain Brain differ somewhat from my previous works as nutritional science continues to refine our understanding of what truly represents the very best recommendations for human nutrition.
