  • Defining Disconnection Syndrome

    David Perlmutter M.D. – Empowering Neurologist: The food, the facts, the science to control your genetic destiny. By: Austin Perlmutter, M.D. As we enter the 2020s, we’re faced with a strange paradox. Despite widespread access to all the things that are supposed to make us happy, we’re lonely, anxious and depressed. We are separated from sustainable joy. We call this state disconnection syndrome. In Brain Wash, we outline 8 central characteristics of disconnection syndrome.
