I specifically have non-alcohol wernickes encephalopathy due to malnutrition from weightloss surgery. will my memory, anxiety, even having a normal relationship get better? I'm 3 years p.o. also coming up on 3 years since my diagnosis. although I feel like I'm doing very well compared to others with my condition, I feel as if I'm at a stand still.

      While my encephalitis issue is due to a gene mutation. I know the balance of quality greens intake and healthy fats (full fat canned coconut milk, EVOO, etc) have helped my brain to heal and stabilize better than others. Also key for me is acknowledging my weight gain over the course of a several years was largely a byproduct of insulin resistance & lifestyle stress which made my encephalitis exacerbate like diabetes so getting my functional medicine doctor to prescribe me a continuous glucose monitor (even though I’m not diabetic) has helped me to be aware not only of my glucose levels and it helps me be aware of how certain foods effect my mood and subsequent anxieties. Testing like Nutreval (https://www.gdx.net/news/genova-nutritional-testing?gclid=CjwKCAjw14uVBhBEEiwAaufYx9AxwNvvZN6Mm7smFvvMGNOlkZKRCTqfTXliwgESC1tqHX9WyXm8cBoC_jkQAvD_BwE) help Identify deficiencies and imbalances so quality supplements can aide to fill in the gaps. Physical activity like yoga, Pilates, weight training, and walking especially in nature helped me on many fronts. In another facet of health - mindfulness groups like The Growth Collective on FB has helped identify childhood traumas and self sabotaging beliefs that had kept me in stalled state of fear. I work every day to be conscious of my own thoughts trying to weave hateful stories. Our beliefs about ourselves if we’re not conscious, is the absolute toughest opponent, but not untamable. I gave a lot of sporadic info, but hopefully some of the that may help on your journey! 🙏
