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.
