Do you think you should be feeling better? You should! Dr. Charles Parker , a Neuroscientist, psychiatrist, and author of two books is offering a free webinar March 14th 6-8 pm (eastern time). This includes an interactive session and expert advice of “brain science”, including TBI along with ADD.
This neuroscientist starts getting a biological profile to determine balance with neurotransmitters, hormones, and trace minerals. Read the comment about a gentleman who improved after 18 years. It sounds like a very similar story to mine.
With advances like this, TBI symptoms could possibly be managed with the quality of life improving drastically. Let’s all keep pushing for quality and searching for the proper professionals. One of his books “Deep Recovery” focuses on “labels” during recovery/rehabilitation and where the focus should be during evaluation, assessment and treatment for adequate care.
I truly believe signing up for this Shindig will be an educational opportunity no one wants to miss. What do you think about the research, and possible improvement in TBI symptoms and quality of life?

Who would ever think after nearly two decades … precisely 18 1/2 years one would get their life back? Was it answer to prayer? Was it prayer that kept one alive? With certainty, it was both. This treatment and diagnosis is common to traumatic brain injury. Sadly, most do not know about it. I did not know about it.

Just a brief over view what happened during the years of recovery. I struggled daily with only energy for 3 to 4 hours every day.

Short video on service dogs and veterans. Dogs are known to be therapeutic with those suffering physical or mental illness. They also add to pleasurable days for everyone. Having a pet is a healthy choice! All dogs regardless of breed or schooling … are service dogs in their own right!
Service dogs identify a need by the handler, and both need to be respected by the public. People should be cautiously aware the handler is challenged and needs assistance.
