Got brain fog, fatigue, fuzzy thinking, or memory loss?
Are you fed up with depression, anxiety, or lack of focus?
Have things not felt quite right since your concussion or brain injury?
Brain issues are common today in both children and adults. In fact, they’re so common people think they’re normal. Brain fog, depression, anxiety, memory loss – nope, not normal. Neither is never fully recovering from a concussion, or having new health problems since your concussion.
These are signs of impaired brain function that can raise your risk of a more serious degenerative brain disease, such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s, later in life. You are your brain, so start taking good care of it now.
Alzheimer’s rates are exploding, as are childhood brain development disorders, including autism, ADD, and ADHD. Anti-anxiety medications are the most commonly prescribed psychiatric drugs, with antidepressants right behind them.
Functional medicine address underlying problems affecting brain function
Your brain is not suffering from a medication deficiency. In many cases, we can significantly improve brain-based disorders, whether it’s brain fog and words getting stuck on the tip of your tongue or struggles with depression and anxiety.
Improving brain health involves a comprehensive approach using functional medicine and functional neurology approaches. The health of the body affects the health of the brain, so I address that as well.
For instance, studies increasingly show the strong connection between gut health and brain health. If you have acid reflux, bloating, gas, indigestion, constipation, diarrhea, abdominal pain, or other gut problems, these conditions affect your brain health.
Also, is your blood sugar out of whack? Blood sugar that is too high or low profoundly affects brain health. In fact, researchers are calling Alzheimer’s type 3 diabetes because of how profoundly degenerative high blood sugar is to brain tissue.
Immune health, hormone function, and how well your body handles stress are other factors that can affect brain function.

Functional neurology strategies help correct brain function
In addition to using functional medicine, I also look at how the brain itself is functioning. Various neurological exams give me a window into which parts of the brain are over active, which parts are under active, and whether different parts of the brain are communicating with each other effectively.
I then perform and prescribe simple exercises to start correcting these misalignments. The results can be profound.
Practitioners today see increasing numbers of patients suffering from a variety of brain-based issues. These problems often come on slowly, or may start advancing quickly. Either way, it’s frightening and frustrating.
Patients go from doctor to doctor looking for help, but there’s not much the standard health care model can offer beyond pharmaceutical approaches. Same goes for concussions — the conventional model does not offer true rehabilitative help.
Functional medicine and functional neurology can significantly improve your brain health and function. As a result, you are happier, more energetic, and more productive. By addressing both the health of the brain and the body in which it lives, I offer an approach to brain-based issues that dives straight to the root cause so you enjoy a lasting recovery.
Functional medicine and functional neurology fill the gap
I am trained to look for symptoms of poor brain health and degenerating brain function that are not obvious to the average doctor. This allows me to help rehabilitate the brain before things are too far gone so you can enjoy better quality of life.
Your brain affects everything about your personality and well being, yet it is the most overlooked organ in health care today, both conventional and alternative.
Don’t let your brain slip away — take control now of your health and your brain function now before it’s too late.
