Leaky Brain Syndrome

If you completed your medical degree, you might think: I've studied for years on end and read countless medical books, but I've never heard of a condition called Leaky Brain Syndrome. You're right because this syndrome has been 'invented' by idiots who try to exploit the gullible.
You know the drill: mention a host of medical problems that are unrelated, claim they are related to some problem and advise patients that they can live a healthy life by eating the right food or ingest massive amounts of vitamins and minerals. These days 'gluten sensitivity' is often regarded as the culprit, but it's all a myth[1].

Thus you read on the internet of things sentences like 'Do you suffer from depression, anxiety, brain fog, headaches, or insomnia? How about Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, dementia, Multiple sclerosis, ALS, seizures, ME/CFS, or Autism? All of these neurological conditions have a common cause – chronic inflammation of the brain. Now answer this question – Have you ever taken antibiotics? If so, then the likelihood that you’ll experience one of these conditions, or others like them, is much greater. A round of antibiotics will destroy all the bacteria in your body within 5 to 7 days, causing a massive release of bacterial toxins into the circulatory system that prime your brain for a lifetime of chronic neuro-inflammation. This condition, Blood-Brain Barrier Hyperpermeability Syndrome, or “Leaky Brain”, can cause varying degrees of inflammation that can lead to the “diseases” and conditions listed above, as well as many others'.

It is not important to these deluded people that pharmaceutical companies are desperately trying to create medications that CAN permeate the blood brain barrier, hoping to finally treat some trivial problems like brain cancer or Alzheimer[2].
