Glenn Beck announced on Monday that he’s been battling a serious brain illness, but he’s on the road to recovery.

Viewers may have noticed this at times if Beck seemed like he was losing interest in his program.

The politically conservative commentator shared on his network The Blaze that he’s suffered considerable health problems in recent years. His symptoms including vocal cord paralysis, eyesight problems, seizures, autoimmune disorder and adrenal fatigue and severe pain.

But the illness was also a mystery. Doctors could not give him a firm diagnosis. Some even told him that he only had 5 to 10 functional years left.

It wasn’t until Beck found Carrick Brain Centers that he started to get answers. He was suffering from a serious neurological illness.

“After a few short visits, they found that I had several things going on, from an autoimmune disorder to adrenal fatigue. They also found the connection to everything that was going on, and for the first time gave us hope that we could reboot my system — not just stop it, but reverse things,” Beck told The Blaze in an interview.

“Me never having to sleep was finally understandable. The last sign of adrenal failure is a hyperextension of your adrenal glands. In other words, I didn’t need sleep. I could have been lifting cars during my time at Fox!”

And after intense therapy over the summer, he scored a 90th percentile on the traumatic brain injury test once again and received a clean bill of health.
