  • Svimmelhet (Dizzyness/vertigo)
  • Depresjon, angst (Depression, anxiety, and mood disorders)

Neurodegeneration:

With neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease, most modern treatment is focused on managing different dopamine medications. Through our treatment we maximize efficiency in the areas of your brain responsible for dopamine production.  When caught early in the stages it is often very possible to significantly delay the onset and dramatically improve the symptoms of Parkinson’s and other associated disorders.

This means, the potential to decrease tremor, improve balance, improve gut function, improve emotional control, memory, and motor ability (less “freezes while walking”) .

It is important to note that there is no cure for these diseases but with new discoveries in neurological therapy and nutritional strategies we now have the ability to improve symptom management and delay further degeneration better than ever before.  Most of our treatment is aimed at significantly improving your quality of life and your independence and often time’s dramatic differences can be had after treatment.

Mild Traumatic brain injury/Concussion:

Concussion and brain injuries has made the news everywhere in recent years.  In fact it is highly likely that as many as 90% of the population has suffered from a head injury at one time or another in life.  Typically after suffering a head injury most people heal up within 2 weeks. Traditional medical care is unfortunately very underperforming when it comes to brain injury management.  With our unique approach we look at actively restoring the brain function that has been lost. Brain injuries can come from many different sources including ; sports injury, auto accident, infection, falls or slips, or any other activity where your head comes into rapid contact with another object.  Contrary to popular opinion you do not need to be knocked unconscious in order to receive a head injury, and most physicians are under qualified to determine the amount of dysfunction a concussion has caused. This is because there is no “imaging” that can show a concussion, the concussion or mTBI is only diagnosable by a collection of neurological test which physicians who are not specifically trained in are generally poor at interpreting.

A very common presentation of brain injury is someone who looks normal, passes all medical test, but knows that they are not performing like they should.  Many times these people are labeled as “paranoid” or “attention seeking” when the simple matter is, when your brain is not functioning correctly, you don’t feel like yourself!

Common symptoms of brain injury and its cousin post concussive syndrome include:  Headache, migraine, light sensitivity, fatigue, brain fog, dizziness, not remembering what you read, pain with quick eye movements, bad coordination, partial paralysis, gastric distress, depression, anxiety, and chronic pain.

Concussion or mild traumatic brain injury is one of the most common causes for difficult to detect health problems that have been plaguing you for years.  If you or a loved one has suffered from brain injury it is imperative to be checked by our specialist who very regularly has helped people suffering from this hard to detect disorder

Migraine:

A migraine is an extremely common disorder affecting up to 36% of patient complaining of head pain.  It has an average cost of up to 24000 € for out of pocket expense per patient!  Typically affecting women more than men at a rate of 3:1, many people see an association between hormones, diet, or activity and the onset of migraine.  Typical treatment involves prophylactic medication which generally has limited benefits. There are 2 classifications of headaches, secondary which includes; tension headache, headache due to tumor, headache from dehydration, basically any headache that has a clear cause.  Then there are primary headaches which is the category migraine falls into. With these types of headaches what happens is you have a primary brain based pain.

Generally speaking our body does not have actual receptors for what we perceive as pain.  Pain is interpreted in the brain based off all sorts of centers in your nervous system. Typically we have receptors in our skin called “nociceptors” these “nociceptors” constantly send general information to our brains about the state of our body, our brain then completely ignores them!  This is why you do not feel your shirt against your back, until you concentrate on it obviously.
Normally when we have increased nociception, (such as if we hit our shin on the table) we lose the ability to ignore them and our brain will make us feel pain so we do not do that again!  Now with migrainers, and other forms of chronic pain, what happens is our brain loses the ability to ignore, or inhibit, this information and it makes us feel pain, even when we should not!  This is why when we treat migraines we specifically apply therapies to increase your brains ability to ignore extra information and inhibit the pain which you should not be feeling in the first place!   When this system in our brain works correctly, migraines fade away.
. Commonly when patients come to us they think the migraine cannot be fixed because they have already removed all “triggers” which kick the migraine off.  This is the wrong way to think because our triggers do not cause the migraine, instead they can only kick it off. The migraine is always “caused” by the brain failing to inhibit information and creating pain where there is none.
This is why our unique approach to correcting the brain’s ability to inhibit sensory information and turn off this pain sensation has been successful for many patients, although we do not fix every migraine that comes to us, by improving the brain’s ability to function many people do experience dramatic relief.  Some patient have dropped the frequency of migraine from as high as 20 times a month to 1 time a month, others have even had complete resolution!
It is important to note that there are many types of migraine and each one may need a slightly different approach which is why a complete neurological exam is always performed at the beginning of any patients care.
Headaches are very common and disabling among adolescents. Read more in this article:

Dizzyness/vertigo:

One of the most common presentations of neurological problems in patients, dizziness is often times a side effect of another condition.  Stroke for example will also have people with horrible dizziness. In Dysautonomia’s such as POTS, patients will get dizzy, and in many brain injuries patients will become dizzy.
After a complete neurological examination we must determine whether your dizziness is the main issue or if it is a side effect of something else.  This is best done by someone trained specifically in neurology who can tell the difference between the various types of dizziness. One of the most common causes is known as BPPV otherwise called “crystal sickness”.  This happens when our inner ear is dysfunctional and can cause violent and horrible dizziness, it is however generally relatively simple and fast to fix by a qualified health care practitioner. Something we hear very commonly however is “ I have been treated 10 times and my crystals are getting better but I am still dizzy”.  When we hear this, we immediately have to think that BPPV or “crystal sickness” is not the cause of you dizziness.
Generally dizziness will come with a alteration in the electrical output of the brain and can be treated in a variety of different ways.  If you or a loved one is suffering from dizziness, whether from brain injury, neck injury, stroke, BPPV, blood pressure problems etc… Often times it can be treated by correcting the problem electrical circuits in the brain.

Depression, anxiety, and mood disorders:

Depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders have been shown to have an extremely high association with both Brain Injury and Blood Sugar instability.  In fact, in recent literature we have shown that nearly all 99.9% of diabetic patients have damage at the area in the brain which is the main processor of depression.  There is another study that looked at the relationship between mTbi/Concussion and depression and found the same! Every patient with concussion that was studied had alterations in the area of the brain that controls depression!  Now there are many other causes of depression as well, BUT if you or a loved one has had a noticeable mood change after having suffered from a brain Injury or concussion, there is good literature and clinical results showing that there is the potential for massive improvement in your ability to regulate emotion!
When we work with you we work to not only treat your brain, but to help guide you in the dietary and lifestyle alterations necessary for giving you the best opportunity to recover!
