Our brains are dependent upon sufficient oxygen, fuel and stimulation to maintain optimal function and stave off degeneration. If any of the above is compromised, so is the integrity of our brain. Depending the affected areas, many people are predisposed to dementia/Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Jefferson’s ataxia, or other cognitive, movement, or cerebellar disorders. The key is to identify the vulnerable regions, stabilize function, and work at reestablishing the components responsible for their optimal function.
Whether referring to dyslexia, ADHD, autism spectrum, Asperger’s, tic disorders, or the various mental syndromes, it is clear that rates are rising at an alarming rate. The key to addressing a condition is understanding the underlying issues (pathophysiology/compromise/insult) and having effective strategies to address them. If there is a genetic component, then epigenetics would need to be concentrated on; metabolic, then diet; structural/neurological – chiropractic and adjunctive brain-based and neuromuscular therapies. Sometimes there are other aspects involved which require a team to address. NeuroLife is proud to have close working relationships with a number of providers in various disciplines to help provide you the best results and ensure your best interest is always our sole priority.
Concussion & Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) have been brought to the limelight in the past decade as awareness has been finally made regarding their far-reaching effects on the body and the varying severity of each unique case.
NeuroLife concentrates on two major aspects regarding the brain to help resolve those suffering concussion/TBI: fuel supply and balanced brain function. The brain cannot function without sufficient fuel supply. Many with brain injuries will have compromised fuel supply due to alteration in the brain’s ability to control this function. This dysfunction can be related to the midbrain, blood sugar regulation, inflammation values, gastrointestinal function and others. In addition, brain injuries can commonly cause regions of the brain to underfire and overfire, which can affect various everyday functions. We concentrate on triangulating these imbalances and reestablishing proper balance and optimal function.
