Whole-Body  Brain Optimization Program

neurologics-logo-vertical-animated.gif

Transforming Diagnosis and Treatment of Brain Diseases

Focus on: Autism, ADHD, PANDAS, Depression/Anxiety, Traumatic Brain Injury, PTSD, and Neurodegeneration.

Hundreds of peer-reviewed studies show a common theme:
Whole body and local brain inflammation is an impediment to successful brain recovery and optimization programs.


Sources of inflammation include: gut imbalances, poor nutritional status, and chronic - often undetected infections.

Inflammation is a continuum. Greater inflammatory burdens impede brain recovery.

How this program augments Neurologics & brain-focused programs

Brain Quick Facts:

  • Your brain uses 25% of the oxygen from your blood.
     

  • Your brain is 10-times more metabolically active compared to the rest of your body.
     

  • Neurotransmitters and brain hormones are made in your gut.
     

  • Infections like Lyme disease and gingivitis are known to inflame and disrupt the brain.

  • Heavy metals are toxic to the brain.

  • Food sensitivities may cause an autoimmune reaction against the brain.
     

  • Most brain diseases have a common inflammation pathway - microglial cell activation.

We offer a comprehensive whole-body optimization program that will heal the brain and enhance the Neurologics brain-focused recovery and optimization program.

What we do is backed by Science....

Here is one of several thousand research papers that supports our approach from the magazine, Science:

Chronic inflammation accompanies brain injury,

suggesting that inflammatory processes may contribute to

neural stem cell dysfunction.

Here, we (Stanford University) show that

neuro-inflammation alone inhibits neurogenesis

(growth of new neurons - needed to restore brain connections)

 and that an inflammatory blockade

(stopping inflammation)

restores neurogenesis

after inflammation (caused by infection or other sources).

Why is it so hard to achieve optimal brain health?

 

In traditional medicine there are 77,000 codes for diagnoses. Which one(s) are assigned to you?

When working with us, we evaluate five (5) critically important mechanisms that drive most chronic conditions.

This is the most sensible and cost-effective place to start. The 5 mechanism are:
 

  1. Poor repair and recovery due to nutritional and absorption deficiencies

  2. Specific sensitivities that cause inflammation

  3. Internal resource allocation - Thrive vs Survive - aka Fight or Flight

  4. Chronic and often stealth infections - oral pathogens, Lyme disease, Chlamydia pneumoniae...

  5. Inadequate autophagy - mainly caused by a lack of physical activity

By measuring and correcting these pathways, our clients most often achieve the optimal health they are pursuing.
