About this Talk

This presentation will cover the nuances behind chronic dietary inflammation along with how it affects our recovery from training. The connection between our Lymphatic system and brain has been recently discovered within the last five years. We are starting to make the connection between neurodegenerative disorders, mood, and anxiety disorders as well as schizophrenia. These are important realizations that carry strong implications to recovery for athletes. Recent studies are showing the havoc inflammatory cytokines are causing in our brain, more specifically to our neurotransmitters. The neurotransmitters affected each play important roles in our ability to recover, in motor function, quality sleep, learning, memory, and much more. Inflammation even has detrimental affects on our ability to gain neurological adaptations through strength training. Interventions are needed in individuals that have fallen victim to chronic inflammation or optimal recovery will never be achieved.
