Although serious brain damage may be beyond the scope of naturopathic care, closed brain injuies of the type described above often respond to naturopathic treatments in conjunction with proper medical and psychological therapies.
A naturopath may utilize a number of therapies that have been demonstrated to be effective.
It is often said that a care giver seeks out treatment for his own pathology and then assists others in recovery from theirs. As a result of a childhood concussion and a 24 hr. coma from a car accident I have personally experienced many of the symptoms described above. Many therapeutic interventions have allowed me to recover my physical, mental, intellectual and emotional function to a point where I lead a happy and successful life.
I often work in conjunction with other health care professionals for specific therapeutics, including counselling, real time EEG brain wave therapy, medication, cranial adjustment or other treatments.
The treatments I employ that have demonstrated great benefit in helping such problems include:
- neural therapy
- cranial adjustments
- scar therapy
- Activator adjustment
- toggle adjustment
- applied kinesiology
- life style counselling
- therapeutic exercises
