My deep-rooted calling is to help as many people as possible. However, I can only treat so many patients in my office, and I cannot put myself on the sidelines of every sports team. I needed to find a way to work around my limitations to be able to help far more people than I could actually meet with one-on-one.
I decided to develop an exercise method to help players turn on the power to their cranial nerves—the most important nerves of the entire body. I wanted to develop a program that worked in beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels through various tiers, a method in which everything is calculated.
Enter the CONC™ Sports app. CONC focuses on strengthening the cranial nerves before participating in contact sports to ensure that the nervous system is at its strongest at all times.
And the great news is that you don’t have to be an athlete to benefit from this app! Anyone can strengthen these most important nerves and experience a better quality of life and improved overall health.
The CONC™ Sports app allows athletes to take an active approach in their nerve health by completing the exercises before, during, and after sports. It also gives parents peace of mind as they can track their child’s progress and know that they’re at a lower risk for long-lasting repercussions of concussions.
What makes CONC™ different from other conditioning exercises you could do?
First, remember that almost no one is focusing on nerve health, and traditional neuro and sports medicine are severely lacking in this crucial component to overall health and well-being.
Second, CONC™ exercises are NOT randomized, textbook exercises. They are sequenced exercises based on years of clinical experience with thousands of patients. I found commonalities between certain weak nerves and formulated specific exercises to make these nerves stronger.
The results are an overall higher level of health and improved athletic performance, since weak nerves will lead to poorer performance on the field.
A major benefit of CONC™ Sports is that it’s appropriate for athletes at any level! We routinely see professional athletes who have major cranial nerve weaknesses and are completely unaware of it.
Regularly performing the exercises found in CONC™ Sports will increase athletic ability by allowing athletes to play with a higher percentage of their body, or power level, like a cell phone with a full charge. This increased head power will make them less prone to injury and decrease the risk of concussions.
We have also made CONC™ Sports affordable because we want every player, of any age, and on any team to have access to it.
Another Success Story
I received a call from a trainer of a youth football team. One of the players had taken a minor hit and became disoriented, shaky, tingly, and started having vision problems. I couldn’t go to the field at that moment, so I advised the trainer to take the 10-year old player to the ER right away.
The ER is not even a quarter mile from the field, and by the time they got there, he was paralyzed. This all took place in a matter of minutes.
The boy’s coach was Rusty. Rusty begged the boy’s parents to bring him to me, but they were wary. His mom worked for a neurosurgeon and saw healthcare through conventional eyes. She was understandably under a lot of stress, and wanted to know why her son went from playing football to paralyzed so quickly.
The ER staff ran him through all the standard tests, including an MRI, but could not find anything to explain his paralysis. There was no spinal tumor, no brain tumor, or anything putting any pressure on any nerve in his spine or brain. The doctors couldn’t figure out how he could be paralyzed with normal scan results and with nothing putting pressure on any nerves.
However, this question is simple for us. There doesn’t have to be pressure on a nerve for it to lose power.
The boy slowly regained some strength and movement (his brain was trying to restore some power on its own), but even with crutches, he was barely able to walk. The neurosurgeon was only able to suggest some very light physical therapy and to hope that he regained his previous mobility.
With few options given to them at the hospital, the parents brought their son to my office. He was still very unsteady on his crutches and actually fell as he entered the clinic.
I did my initial exam and assessed his 88 nerves and found many weaknesses. Before I worked on him, we took a video of him trying to walk with his crutches. I then treated him for about 15 minutes and took another video as he walked out of the exam room and down the hall with remarkable improvement.
He returned the next day for another treatment and his improvement was better still. His parents recorded him running on the football field the following day and he looked like a regular 10-year old kid again. You can watch his amazing videos here.

Last week, I introduced the three-fold problem with the conventional way of dealing with CONCs (concussions) and my belief as to why they’re so pervasive in contact sports and even in everyday life situations (like when I sustained a CONC while renovating my dining room).
This week, I’m going to discuss the solution to this injury that we practice at the Nerve Health Institute. It’s a regimen that’s understood and used by so few practitioners that unless you or someone you know has undergone it, you’ve probably never heard of it.
But I’m here to change that, one reader at a time.
Although there have been great advancements concerning CONC injuries, there is still a major gap that must be filled in order to combat their potentially life-altering consequences.
Many sports have adopted protocols for doctors and trainers to follow if a head injury should occur, which includes requiring the player to sit out if they receive a hard hit or show any signs of a possible CONC.
However, many questions remain when someone suffers a CONC injury, and many doctors and trainers aren’t aware that there’s more that can be done.
So what are we doing to help concussions that’s so different than what everyone else is doing?
At The Nerve Health Institute, we provide new age healthcare for athletes before, during, and after sports; specifically, we focus on nerve health and helping the body to heal itself through restoration of the power of nerves that control every function of the human body.
In regard to CONC injuries, we focus on the recovery of the 26 nerves inside of the skull, known as cranial nerves. These nerves are often weakened in sports and daily activities, which leads to injuries and illnesses. We find the weak nerves and restore power to them without the use of medicines or surgeries.
The added benefit to having a stronger nervous system is that injury and illness can actually be prevented from occurring at all.
With respect to CONCs, we have seen hundreds of patients dramatically improve. We have also helped thousands of athletes avoid CONCs altogether by keeping their nervous systems stronger and powered up.
In other words, if you want to participate in contact sports, the likelihood of injury decreases if your nervous system is strong and at a higher power level before stepping onto the field of play.
That’s really interesting, Dr. Cormier...but how?
Think about your cell phone. You can see its power level at any time, and you know when it’s time to plug it in and recharge the battery.
Unfortunately, even with the exponential advancements in technology that we’ve seen in just our lifetime, there’s never been a power indicator or charger invented for the human body. Our bodies are just too complex and everyone’s power level is different at any given time for different reasons. In fact, the way you feel directly correlates to your body’s power level. Your brain and nerves continually fight to maintain power to all parts of your body.
Your brain is your largest nerve and controls everything in your body and everything you do.
If you’re an athlete, you’re constantly training your body for strength, speed, and agility. Exercises like sprints, squats, bench presses, and many others will primarily train the 62 nerves located on your spinal cord, which provide power to all the muscles in your body from your head down.
However, the major problem is that this intense training does NOT train the nerves inside your head. These 26 nerves are called cranial nerves, and they are the most important nerves in your entire body. Cranial nerves originate at the back of your skull and spread to different areas in your head. They control your sight, hearing, facial movements, balance, chewing and swallowing, and so much more.
At the Nerve Health Institute, we’ve developed complex methods for helping people with illnesses and injuries (like CONCs) stemming from a technique called Quantum Neurology®, for manually assessing and restoring the body’s power in your 88 nerves.
We reestablish your body’s power through its three primary nutrients--oxygen, water and light, which we call the OWL Method™ of healthcare. If you maintain proper levels of oxygen, water, and light, you can experience your highest quality of life, regardless of your age. We like to say that our goal with our patients is to help them heal faster and age slower!
Last week, I briefly discussed the Concussion Protocol, which is the general policy regarding CONCs in sports, and is used from the high school to professional level in any sport. Trainers or coaches administer a series of questions to the athlete before the season begins, before any type of injury occurs. The athlete’s responses are recorded as a baseline of performance. If an injury occurs (like a concussion), the athlete is required to answer the same questions again. Then, the doctors or trainers compare results of the post-injury test to the baseline, and determine whether the athlete is cleared to play again.
Christopher was a senior starting running back at a local high school and had received his baseline Concussion Protocol test before the season. A short time after, he visited my office to have his nerves assessed and strengthened for complaints that were NOT related to CONC. After several visits we successfully strengthened his nerves, as his power indicator was much stronger than when he first came in.
One Friday night, I received a frantic call from his mom. His helmet had accidentally come off during a run, and then another player accidentally hit him in the head and chin area. He was bleeding and unconscious for a short time. He was very disoriented and didn’t remember being tackled.
His parents brought him to my house for an immediate assessment. Because his nerves were already strengthened from our previous work, he was easier to care for than someone who had never undergone nerve healthcare.
We found all the nerves that had lost power due to being tackled while he wasn’t wearing a helmet, and we used our technology to reboot his computer, so to speak, and restore power to his body. His CONC symptoms—dramatic headache, sensitivity to light and sound, loss of balance, and nausea—all went away after being treated on Friday and Saturday.
On Monday, his athletic trainer re-administered the Concussion Protocol. Because his nerves had been strengthened earlier in the season, and then again immediately after his injury, Christopher scored higher than he did on the baseline test that he’d taken before the season began. The trainer remarked that he had never seen anything like that before in his career.
Rusty Noel is a youth football coach who has seen me on the sidelines working on countless football players with CONCs over the years. One Sunday, he called me needing help himself.
The previous day, he had been doing some work in his office and lifted a heavy pipe wrench over his head when it suddenly slipped out of his hands. It hit him on the top of his head and virtually knocked him out. Rusty is a tough guy, so he somehow finished the job, even though he was disoriented and in pain. He went home and started experiencing more classic CONC symptoms like nausea, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), vision problems, and paleness.
His daughter drove him to my office on Monday and during his exam, he was seeing my index finger in five dimensions. We immediately x-rayed him and found a skull fracture from the impact the wrench had made upon his head. I ordered a CT scan to check for a brain bleed, which, thankfully, was negative (remember, most CONCs don’t lead to a brain bleed, but there are instances when it’s important to make sure).
As is the cornerstone of nerve healthcare, we began assessing his nerve power and found weaknesses, especially in his cranial nerves. Using our methods, we turned the power back on to his weak nerves and his symptoms lessened a great deal. Within a week, he reported a total absence of symptoms.
Because Rusty’s accident was work-related, his insurance company required him to see their company medical doctor. Since he was already nearly 100% better, he resisted, but the insurance company insisted.
After a five-minute exam, the doctor confirmed that Rusty had a concussion and advised him to go home and rest, as is the standard advice among conventional healthcare practitioners regarding CONCs. The conversation that ensued between Rusty and the doctor is not at all unusual or surprising to me...but as I’ve shown, it almost entirely misses the crux of the issue.
Rusty was well-aware of the methods I practice, having seen them in action on his youth football players for many years, and then eventually on himself after his accident. He asked the doctor if he planned to test his cranial nerves.
Not surprisingly, the doctor had no idea what Rusty was talking about. Rusty explained that originally, six of his 13 pair of cranial nerves weren’t functioning at their full potential, but now they were much stronger. The doctor stated that that wasn’t something he knew how to do.
As I’ve mentioned before, there are very few people educated and proficient in the practice of nerve healthcare, and as much as I’d like to be, I cannot be on more than one sideline at a time to correct any injuries that might occur. I have three children myself, who are all active in multiple sports, so I completely understand the concern that many parents have of the risk of injury.
So, how can I take the knowledge and experience I have in this area and make it available to people who live thousands of miles from my office? How can I make a difference in the lives of people who are suffering CONCs, or at risk of being in that position?
Join me next week when I’ll show you how I can do just that, and help as many people as I can.
Do you have questions? We’re here to help.
Last week, you read about my own experience with a major concussion and subsequent paralysis that I was able to treat without surgery, drugs, or physical therapy. This week I’d like to dive into why concussions are such a huge problem in a way that you probably haven’t heard before.
First, a bit of background information based on recent research:
The incidence of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) in 2013 was about 2.8 million in the United States. Every day, 153 people in the United States die from injuries that include TBI.¹
In 2017, a summit was held in New York City to discuss head injuries. The following facts were shared:
• 75% of CONCs* (the term we use for concussions) in young players occurred when the player was not aware that contact or collision was coming. When a CONC was unexpected, the player’s symptoms lasted longer than a similar injury that occurred when the hit was expected.
• Up to 40 percent of youth soccer players indicated that they wouldn't report their CONC symptoms to anyone. This statistic is of particular concern to physicians and should be to parents of young athletes, as well, for the data tell us that continued play after concussion in children ages 12 to 18 is associated with significant delays in symptom recovery.²
Clearly, the staggering frequency with which CONCs are occurring cannot be ignored. It’s also important to recognize that while concussions are most likely to occur on the sports field (especially in contact sports like football, soccer, hockey, and cheerleading), they also occur in everyday life situations like car accidents, work injuries, and freak accidents in the home, like my own dining room concussion.
The fear of concussions is especially prominent when it comes to youth sports. (As a father of three children who each play multiple sports, I absolutely empathize with this worry that so many parents have). While there are many valuable life lessons to be learned from participating in sports, oftentimes these take a backseat when anxiety over serious injury becomes the main focus. In fact, in recent years, participation in youth contact sports has declined, and injury lawsuits have increased.
Former and current professional athletes are making public their refusal to allow their children to participate in contact sports due to the risk of CONCs. There are multiple news reports of former athletes’ lives being in turmoil due to multiple head injuries that often lead to drug addiction, violence, and even suicide. Many former athletes are allowing their brains to be donated upon their deaths for further research regarding TBIs to help combat the problems associated with CONC injuries.
This leads me to the three-fold problem with CONCs.
First, the standard concussion protocol is severely lacking in terms of assessing nerves. It consists of a series of questions that are asked of the athlete right after the injury, and their answers are compared to their baseline responses when administered the test prior to going onto the field.
If it’s determined that the player needs immediate medical attention, they’ll be taken to the ER, and a CT scan will be performed to check for any bleeding in or around the brain. The overwhelming majority of CONCs do not involve a brain bleed, so the athlete will be sent home with orders to rest, stay away from school or work, refrain from driving and cell phone and computer use, take over-the-counter NSAIDs, and if necessary, avoid light and noise.
Essentially, doctors will send a concussion patient home with the hope that their brain heals itself, but it may take days, months, or even years. If it doesn’t, they are looking at much more invasive treatments.
What this standard protocol doesn’t involve, though, is any sort of check of the injured player’s nerves, which is the most crucial piece of the puzzle, but almost always overlooked by even the most trained and experienced medical staff.
Second, we live in a time when children have poorer nerve health than adults five times their age. I see this again and again both in my clinic and on the sidelines. Since nerve health is by and large an untapped area of the conventional health care system, nerve weaknesses often go unnoticed and undiagnosed. It’s only the major nerve weaknesses, such as paralysis, that are visible and diagnosed.
From two decades of clinical observation, I believe that the deterioration of youth nerve health is due to the following:
• The level of pollutants, toxins, and chemicals in their environment.
• Radio waves and other EMF(electromagnetic frequencies) from cellphones and other devices.
• Eating more human-made food than God-made food.
In terms of the above issues, adults generally adapt better to change and stress. However, children born now must deal with these massive changes in technology and the environment that have occurred just in the last 20 years. Their little nervous systems are not equipped to adapt to the astronomical pace of changes occurring in the world today.
Additionally, this generation of children does not have anyone with proper knowledge routinely assessing their bodies’ nerve power to ensure their brains are powered up to all their body parts.
The third and final problem are monopolies on every level of sports. From little league to the professional level, each team is contracted with a particular therapy group, orthopedic group, and athletic trainers. These monopolies are well-intentioned, but they almost always fall short on many advanced, unconventional technologies, like what we practice at the Nerve Health Institute.
One day, a high school quarterback was brought into our clinic by his parents, who had heard about me from others in the community. He had a foot injury, known as turf toe, that was not healing under the care of his assigned school trainers and doctors, and they decided to seek alternative options.
Using our nerve power-checking methods that I will discuss in more detail next week, we were able to help his turf toe and get him back onto the field. His parents were impressed and relieved that they had found an option that worked for him! They spoke to his coaches about how there was a local doctor who was doing things that the school trainers and doctors weren’t capable of.
Soon after, the head coach and defensive coordinator came to our office to see our techniques for themselves and told me that they wanted me on the sidelines for all their games. Within an hour of them returning to school to discuss this potential partnership with the principal, I got a phone call stating that we were not allowed in the school at all. They could NOT make arrangements with anyone outside their contracted group.
Players and families typically live in a box of healthcare, and trust their team to provide the best care. This goes for any level of athletics, and when there isn’t room for any alternative methods, many players may continue to play at less than 100% power, putting themselves at risk for serious injury, or might be forced to quit or retire early.
Sports teams don’t have any doctors, trainers, or therapists on their sidelines who do what we do. Come back next week where I will discuss why our approach is so effective at dealing with the problem of CONCs.
* The acronym, CONC, has been substituted for the word concussion.

At The Nerve Health Institute, our passion and mission is to take a whole-body wellness approach to patient care—allowing our bodies to heal themselves. We are chiropractors by trade, but our expertise and work goes far beyond your typical chiropractic care—by heavily emphasizing nerve health care, which is as cutting-edge and unconventional as having an iPhone in the 1970s (seriously).
One of my main areas of interest and experience is the treatment of concussions. For the next few weeks, I’ll discuss how we take a very different approach to this increasingly prominent head injury and how our methods and technologies are so effective that we commonly see patients return to their normal activities in a matter of days. I’ll also tell you my personal experience with concussions and paralysis.
For now, I’d like to take a little time to introduce myself a bit more in-depth and give you a picture of my background and heart for my work.
When I was a child, my great grandmother would get massive headaches. I found myself drawn to touching her head and it really surprised me that I was able to literally feel the exact location of her pain with my hands. Of course, I didn’t know it at the time, but that uncanny ability to palpate (using touch to examine a part of the body), would lead me to where I am today, using my God-given abilities to help thousands of men, women, and children recover from illness and injury and lead healthier lives.
I majored in kinesiology at LSU because I knew I wanted to work in healthcare; however, I wasn’t sure on the exact discipline I wanted to pursue and practice. I worked in various hospitals in surgery and therapy, and considered continuing my graduate education in physical therapy or occupational therapy.
One day, my roommate said he was going to chiropractic school after we graduated. I had never even heard that word before, but I researched it and felt a distinct calling to it and knew that that was where God was leading me to help others.
After completing more than three years of medical undergraduate courses, I began at Texas Chiropractic College. Chiropractic school is not easy. It is three and a half years of very intense coursework and clinical hours, including a course on palpation. Remember my story of being able to pinpoint the location of my great grandmother’s headaches when I was just a kid? This class is where it all came together and made sense to me. Whereas my classmates found our palpation class to be difficult, it came very naturally to me and I felt like I could feel things differently than others.
Fast forward to 2008, and I’ve been in practice as a chiropractor for nine years. I felt another calling that I could serve my patients at a higher level and meet my full potential as a healthcare provider.
I learned about a man named Dr. George Gonzalez and his never-been-done-before methods of checking nerves and their power levels, thus identifying where weaknesses were and how to strengthen them. This method not only helps illness or injury, but enables a doctor and patient to strengthen weak nerves to help avoid future problems...like concussions.
To this day, Dr. Gonzalez’s methods are still so cutting-edge that there are only about 100 or more doctors worldwide proficient in his techniques.
Just last year, on April 30, 2018, after having performed nerve power-checking and strengthening on thousands of patients over the course of nearly 20 years, I had the unfortunate (or was it?) opportunity to use my own treatment methods on myself.
While working on some home renovations, I hit my head very hard on a chandelier. I sustained a major concussion from this accident that I was able to treat within two days. However, this injury also caused neck and spinal swelling so severe that the nerves lost complete power to all the muscles in my right arm, rendering it paralyzed. We tried several things that started to help but this part of my injury was very puzzling.
I literally laid on my floor and researched new ways to treat my injury. I came across a laser technology therapy and underwent it on May 23. The next day, I was pain-free, and in a matter of six weeks, I was back to normal work and activity, including working out.
In mainstream and conventional medicine, my dining room incident would have resulted in immediate surgery, addictive medications for pain and swelling, at least 100 physical therapy sessions, tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills, and more than likely, disability. I view healthcare through a much different lens.
This accident gave me time to research new technologies that I soon incorporated into my practice--hyperbaric oxygen chambers and a full-body wellness light bed charge up people’s bodies with good light and oxygen. So, no, I don’t see it as an “unfortunate accident,” in fact, I see it as God giving me firsthand experience in what my patients endure, including paralysis, so that I could become even better equipped with new methods to help improve their health and quality of life.
In 2017, Dr. Angelique Miller joined my practice and is an invaluable member to our team and an incredible asset to her patients. She started out as a patient herself when she was just a teenager. When she was a business major as a freshman at a nearby college, she became an employee when I needed some extra help. Within just a couple weeks, her natural gift for chiropractic and nerve health care was undeniable. She changed her major, went to chiropractic school, and the rest is history. I never cease to be impressed by her skill and intuition for what we do, and it’s an honor to have her as a colleague.
Now you know more about us at the Nerve Health Institute! Please join me next week where I’ll dive headfirst into the controversial subject of concussions and how our treatment of them is unlike anything out there today.
Hyperbaric treatment is a modality that applies pressurized oxygen to treat various ailments of the body. Recently, hyperbaric medicine has been gaining notice for its use as an additive therapy for a wide variety of ailments from decompression sickness to non-healing wounds. With new treatment options on the horizon, like hyperbaric oxygen therapy, the road to recovery could arrive sooner.
What Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment?
Hyperbaric oxygen treatment works by placing the patient in a pressurized environment with oxygen. These environments allow oxygen to penetrate body tissues and oxygenate parts of the body which may require more oxygen.
What Are The Benefits?
The human body requires oxygen to heal and maintain bodily tissues. Some of these bodily functions include destroying bacteria, prevent death of tissue and even restore blood supply to organs. As you might imagine, this holds promise for conditions where oxygen deprivation is a serious concern, of which there are many:
Many bacteria are unable to survive in highly oxygenated environments. In cases where you may be infected with these types of “anaerobic” bacteria, it is possible to reduce and fight the infection. Well documented studies have proven that oxygen therapy reduced mortality rates and reduced infection in people suffering from these types of bacteria.
Reperfusion injuries is tissue damage that occurs when blood supply is cut off or arrested to any tissue or organ. One well known type of reperfusion injury is the myocardial infaction, otherwise known as a heart attack. Studies show that hyperbaric oxygenation improves the functioning and repair of heart tissue after such attacks. In fact, one study found that hyperbaric oxygen treatment even helped to restore function to the heart after a sudden heart attack.
Even more remarkably, in a 2003 study, hyperbaric oxygen therapy was used to speed up the healing process in liver transplant surgeries. Liver function returned faster than normal in the recipients and were able to return to normal without significant side effects.
The benefits don’t stop at restoring organ function. Many patients who received hyperbaric therapy as an additive to regular treatment for foot ulcers showed dramatic improvement and reduced the chances of amputation. This is a boon to diabetic patients who regularly suffer from non-healing wounds.
Compromised Flaps and Grafts
According to guidelines from the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society, hyperbaric oxygen therapy can also be used to help with compromised flaps and graft treatment. For instance, some wounds that require grafts in order to heal may not be ready until a certain amount of healing has occurred. Additionally, blood supply to the new graft would need to be established. For these reasons, a hyperbaric physician may consider using this therapy to augment growth and healing.
What Conditions Does It Help?
Hyperbaric oxygen treatment has been proven to benefit many conditions as mentioned previously. Fortunately the list of conditions this therapy could potentially benefit is long. Below is a list of conditions that hyperbaric oxygen therapy could benefit:
-North Carolina Hyperbaric's & Wound Care
The nervous system is responsible for controlling the larger part of our vital functions (breathing, heartbeats, hunger, thirst, posture, etc.) as well as for our emotions (happiness, sadness, etc.), it is imporant to strengthen it naturally to ensure a good quality of life.
THREE BENEFICIAL FOODS
There are some specific foods that positively regulate our nervous system:
Alterations in the nervous system, such as insomnia, anxiety, hyperactivity, worry, or panic attacks can be symptoms of a lack of magnesium in our bodies.
It is recommended, in these cases, to daily consume foods rich in magnesium, such as:
We can also opt for a magnesium supplement. In this case, we will take three grams every day, orally, three times a day so the body can absorb it properly, which is one gram per meal.
MEDICINAL PLANTSThe following medicinal plants act as relaxants and boosters of the nervous system. We can take them as infusions or extracts, or use as air fresheners in our home, and on our skin as essential oils:
Sunlight is an excellent regulator of the nervous system and it also provides us with vitamin D. To benefit from it, we can sunbathe for 10 to 15 minutes per day, preferably in the morning or late afternoon.
WALKING BAREFOOT IN A NATURAL ENVIRONMENT
Walking barefoot on moist earth, dewy grass, beach sand, in a river, in the sea, etc.,during at least half an hour a day is the most economic and healthy way to balance our nervous system. In addition, it helps us to eliminate elctromagnetic radiation that we absorb in our body from continuous contact with electronic devices. We recommend that you test it out, as the results can be noticed from the first day.
Regular visits to check for nerve weaknesses should be part of your preventative care. When weak nerves are left undetected, injuries may occur and recovery time can be extended. Just as you visit your dentist for a checkup, it's important to see your nerve doctor for full 88 nerve checkup to see what can be causing your symptoms. With the revolutionary technology of Quantum Neurology, the Nerve Health Institute is able to help patients who walk in hobbling feel better in minutes. A cricked neck can be painful and debilitating but if you get tested and rehabilitated with the advanced light therapy, you may be helping your body heal itself and feel better within minutes.
How does this work?
We restore the connectivity from the nerves to the brain. Just as if your wifi is online, we are able to bring you back online by awakening your nerves. Call us for an appointment and discover the power of nerve rehabilitation today at 337-456-6555.
REASONS WHY WOMEN HAVE HEADACHES
Here is an important video from Dr. Angelique Miller, D.C. to find out the cause of your headaches.
One of the biggest reasons why women get more headaches is hormone fluctuations. Estrogen is a hormone that has been closely linked to headaches, and this hormone is much more prevalent in women. It seems that levels of pain tend to vary based on a woman’s menstrual cycle, and that some pains feel most severe during the premenstrual period and during menses.
There’s also a phenomenon called cortical spreading depression (CSD) that is believed to cause headaches, and females may have a lower threshold for CSD compared to males. Another theory is that females have thicker gray matter in parts of the brain that manage pain processing, whereas other studies point to adverse childhood experiences and more exposure to physical abuse as reasons why women have more headaches.
Researchers have also found that women tend to experience stronger episodes of chronic pain that lasts longer than their male counterparts. This goes beyond pain in the head and extends to the neck, back, knee, and shoulder too. Other conditions, like fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, and irritable bowel syndrome, are more common among women.
When several of these conditions occur simultaneously in the body, the pain can become unbearable and lead to psychological problems and permanent disability.
Your body is smart. It was designed to give you signals when it is off balance or the nervous system is not connecting well. With careful attention and finding the cause of the problem, we can start the recovery process and bring your body back to health.
Neuropathy is a common complication of a number of different medical conditions. It can involve the autonomic nerves, the motor nerves, and the sensory nerves. Sometimes a single nerve, or nerve set is affected, for example, in Bell’s Palsy, which affects a facial nerve.
Physical trauma, repetitive injury, infection, metabolic problems, and exposure to toxins and some drugs are all possible causes.
Did you know tat people with diabetes have a high risk of neuropathy?
It's important to pay attention to your body's signals. These symptoms are signs from your body and nervous system that need to be addressed to avoid further complications.
Are you experiencing these signs? What can they mean?
Tingling and numbness: Usually in the hands and feet. This is because the nerves at the extremities are most vulnerable to damage. Will most likely occur at night.
Loss of balance: Researchers at Manchester Metropolitan University recently published their findings on the link between peripheral neuropathy and balance. Researchers observed that patients suffering from neuropathy have a greater separation between the body’s center of mass and the center of pressure during movement. Muscle weakness, leading to unsteadiness and difficulty performing small movements, such as buttoning a shirt.
Lightheaded or dizzy: Neuropathy can also affect the muscles that help regulate blood pressure – rending them unable to expand or constrict to control the pressure. Especially when standing from a sitting postion.
Constipation: Nerve damage can disrupt normal digestive functions and slow the process by which the stomach is emptied.
Loss of ability to detect changes in heat and cold.
Extreme sensitivity to touch
What should you do if you experience these signs?
Contact the Nerve Health Institute as soon as you notice unusual tingling, weakness or pain in your hands or feet. Early diagnosis and treatment offer the best chance for controlling your symptoms and preventing further damage to your peripheral nerves.
It's all about the nerves and we address these issues by first checking your nerves for weaknesses and applying the technique of Quantum Neurology Rehabilitation, we can stimulate and awaken the weak connections from the nerves to the brain and start the recovery process. Treatments can vary from one to multiple visits but they are pain free, no surgery, and no medications involved. It is our speciality that gives hope to so many patients.
In addition to our Nerve Rehabilitation treatments, we also suggest the following.
