Why the brain?
Because our brain controls, coordinates and regulates every single function of your body, and it is the organ of our memory, character, feelings, intelligence, and every single decision or thought we ever make. When your brain works well, you work well. When your brain is not working right, you are not working right, and this leads to problems you don’t need. The great news is that the brain is capable of repair and can respond to targeted
Why the body?
As it turns out, science is now showing us that how the brain is functioning will affect the body, and how the body is functioning will affect the brain. In other words, for optimal brain health we need optimal overall health. It is not just knowing about the brain and nervous system: it is all about knowing how the brain and body interact and being able to support whatever system is not optimal. For example, it is now known that migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, brain fog, depression, anxiety, fatigue, pain, arthritis, memory issues, dizziness, concussion and virtually all chronic conditions are caused or perpetuated by inflammation. Furthermore, this inflammation usually has multiple causes: allergy; gut and digestive health; weight; sleep; foods; nutrient imbalances; hormones; stress; infectious burden; immune issues; toxic exposures; blood sugar regulation, exercise and fitness levels, trauma and other environmental stressors.
What this means is that you will benefit most from a specialist in understanding the brain AND all of the influences that the body has on the brain: in other words, you need a specialist who is a generalist and one who will work hard to figure out what the underlying health issues are that are adding up to create your health challenges. And on top of that, most chronic conditions have multiple causes and need comprehensive and synergistic support.
Please be aware that the neurological and nutritional approach to health does not take the place of primary care medicine, and vice versa. We need whatever we need whenever we need it: however, we ALWAYS need a great brain and great nutrition through an individualized and unique course of care.
