The Web of Brain Healing
Healing the brain engages a complex web of biological and physiological processes which are interdependent – hence when one is not working it will negatively affect the others. What further complicates the web is the brain’s interdependence of different areas/regions for proper function. The good news is that research has provided us with enough understanding that we can effectively apply natural therapies to facilitate the brain’s healing. We’ll discuss the web, its nine realms of healing and what you can to help!
A New Era for Brain Healing
Today, we understand that the brain is not a fixed structure that when damaged cannot be fixed; today we understand that the brain is plastic – it can change – grow new neurons, reestablish lost connection and even move functioning from one area to another to restore performance, which is known as neuroplasticity. To accomplish this healing and retraining, many natural therapies such as acupuncture, nutrition and computerized neuro-training are proving themselves as the remedies the brain needs. Patients no longer are limited to current conventional treatment with only drugs, surgery and the therapies of physical, occupational and speech/language.
