Integrative Brain Health Program

I am excited to share that my practice will now be integrating the neuroscience information that I studied during my month-long sabbatical in February 2017. Merging this new knowledge with the wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine enables me to utilize the best of both worlds to facilitate and strengthen your overall health and well-being.

I will continue to offer acupuncture within the scope of Traditional Chinese Medicine treatments and have also created new packages for you to choose from, which you can find here.

The neuroscience that I have learned helps to more accurately diagnose and treat such imbalances as anxiety, depression, weight issues, PTSD, learning disabilities, ADD, OCD, bipolar, ODD, addiction, brain injuries, memory issues, and prevention of dementia and Alzheimer’s. For example, there are 7 different brain types within the diagnosis of ADD – it is important to distinguish and treat accordingly.

Not only can you bring the brain back into a healthy state, but you can actually build brain reserves to then be able to more effectively handle life’s stressful times.

Did you know?

• You can see signs of dementia on brain scans 10-30 years prior to any first symptom.

• The first symptom of Parkinson’s Disease can be constipation years before any other symptom arises? The slowing down of the digestive system can be a sign of the brain starting to slow down.

Why focus on brain health?

• There are things you can do today to have a healthy brain and to build reserves to prevent memory issues later in life. Keeping your brain healthy is one of the most important investments you can make. Your brain is involved with every aspect of your life – every decision, every relationship, and every perspective of your experiences.

• Every decision we make is dependent upon information that our brain has. Do we have access to the best decision we can make?

• Our behavior today will affect our brain health tomorrow and in the years to come.

• Most exciting of all – the brain CAN change!

Why build brain reserves?

• Life happens. Work and family can be stressful, car accidents happen, people we love die, we hit our head, our physical health can be a challenge at times. All of these experiences can stress the brain, which then kills more neurons than the 185,000 neurons that we lose naturally every day.
• If we don’t take time now to help our brain function better and to help us make better decisions, then how we can expect our brain to be healthy as we get older?
