Have you ever had a blow to the head? Did you ever stop to consider that it might be more than a bump on the head? Your brain is a very soft organ, and if you aren’t protecting it from injury then you put yourself at risk for health issues.

A mild traumatic brain injury can have consequences that don’t show up until later. Are you curious about how things like contact sports, auto accidents, and slips and falls can affect your brain health?

If you’re interested in learning more about natural healing for brain injuries in South Surrey, then invest 20 minutes for The Natural Therapies Show, where Trista Polo talks with Dr. Tim Brown, creator of Solving Your Health Puzzle with Integrated Medicine and owner of the SciMedica Health Group about mild traumatic brain injuries and what you need to consider.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention* states that even a mild blow to the head can be serious. This interview is a chance to learn how natural healing methods can prevent further damage.

Brain Function after a Traumatic Brain Injury

The episode kicks off with Dr. Brown relating an experience with a young patient in his mid-30’s who suffered from poisoning from hydrogen sulfide gas. He explains what happened during the incident that affected the young man’s brain health.

Then Dr. Brown segues into the topic of the massive number of traumatic brain injuries and head traumas that get reported each year in the USA. He also reviews why the patient’s age plays a role in the extent of the injury and the chance of recovery.

Even if you have never faced an injury involving the head area, it is important to know how natural therapy works in case this might happen to you or someone you know in the future.

Insight about Mild Traumatic Brain Injury

Next Dr. Brown explains how mild traumatic brain injuries differ from other types of head trauma. He also takes time to provide answers to these and similar questions:

  • Will head trauma affect blood flow to the brain?
  • Could trauma to the neck cause a brain injury?
  • How do natural medicine doctors assess brain injuries?

Now ask yourself these two questions: Have I ever had an injury involving my head or neck? Could I be at risk for this type of injury in the future? If you answered “Yes” to either question, then it’s time to explore the benefits of South Surrey’s natural medicine practices.

How Natural Medicine Doctors Correct Brain Function

Then Dr. Brown goes into how he treats the patients that come into his practice for traumatic brain injuries. If you’re a regular listener, then you will recognize the principles of Integrated Medicine.

Brain health is so important to the vitality of every other part of our body, but not all results of an injury to the brain are physical. During the podcast, Dr. Brown also explains how his practice helps patients who suffer from psychological issues.

Even if you think you are in good health now, it is worth it to arrange a consultation to learn how to improve your overall well-being. What’s stopping you from scheduling an appointment with Dr. Brown’s South Surrey office?

Dr. Brown wraps up the interview by sharing his final thoughts on the brain and maintaining healthy brain function.
