Brain toxicity: What does it look like? Symptoms of brain toxicity: Fatigue, Moodiness, Memory problems, Difficulty focusing (ADD/ADHD), Speech/language problems (Autism), Mood disorders (OCD, depression, etc.), Stiff, uncoordinated muscles (Demyelination.

I encourage you to always seek a happier, healthier mindset even as you seek a happier, and healthier, body.
