Australian physiotherapist Paul Michael explains how learning how to tremor —  an involuntary full-body shaking — is a miracle balm to the central nervous system that relieves stress, remedies anxiety, improves sleep, speeds recovery, and can help heal trauma and PTSD. Michael explains how a person can learn how to trigger tremors on their own and theorizes what it’s doing to the brain that is rehabilitative. A great way to chill out and improve overall brain and body health. (Please excuse my mild cold.)

Dr. Ryan Cedermark describes a fascinating case in which a 25-year-old woman was reduced to a liquid diet due to gut dysfunction caused by concussions in her past. Very soon after starting a functional neurology brain rehabilitation protocol, she was able to go back to eating regular food again. Dr. Cedermark is a fun interview subject who is great at explaining the basics of how brain function affects gut function and how brain rehab can restore gut health.

In this episode, Dr. Chad Larson talks about dopamine, the neurotransmitter that may be responsible for the evolution of life itself. You’ll learn about the role of dopamine in motivation, feelings of pleasure and reward, and self-worth, and the connection between dopamine and addiction. You’ll also learn symptoms of low dopamine, such as lack of motivation, bouts of rage, and general lethargy. You may think the obvious solution is to take a dopamine supplement, but Dr. Larson offers a surprising and sustainable approach that can start improving your dopamine activity in the right parts of the brain today.  This is a very useful and enlightening talk.

Dr. Chad Larson practices in Solana Beach, California and his speech topic at the IAFNR 2017 functional neurology conference is The Great Motivator: How Dopamine Deficiency Hijacks Your Ability to Get Shit Done.

David Gallina is a naturopathic student who studies the connection between movement and neurology. In this fascinating discussion, he explains how sitting all day and loss of flexibility severely impacts brain function, even if you work out regularly. The human brain is advanced as it because it developed to perform complex physical movements, yet few of us do them regularly. You’ll learn how you can radically boost brain health through simple movements throughout the day, even if a chronic autoimmune condition has you feeling run down. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself sitting in a rejuvenating squat by the end of the episode.   

Gallina is the founder of Hybrid Movement Practice in Seattle. He will be speaking at the IAFNR 2017 functional neurology conference on the Importance of the General Movement Paradigm and Novelty in Functional Neurology.

In this episode, Dr. David Rosenthal explains how we can detect brain development dysfunction as early as in newborns. Once you understand some early neurological development basics, you can watch your baby for signs of milestones that aren’t happening or happening unevely. Likewise, he explains the neurology behind intuition and why parents should trust theirs even if a doctor brushes them off. Catching these signs early can alert you to an increased risk of autism, ADD, ADHD, tics, and so on so you can take action sooner rather than later and help the brain get on track. Whether a baby cries too much or is too lethargic, paying attention to subtleties can help you steer your baby’s brain in the right direction sooner rather than later with some functional neurology help. Dr. Rosenthal is presenting at the 2017 IAFNR functional neurology conference (iafnr.org). You can learn more about Dr. Rosenthal at http://www.davidrosenthaldc.com/.

In this episode, renowned childhood brain development specialist Dr. Robert Melillo talks about how early survival reflexes shape the development of the brain, and how early brain development disorders — which start in the womb — can throw a wrench in healthy brain growth. This leads to incomplete development and the rise of issues we increasingly see today: autism, ADD, ADHD, OCD, Tourette’s, etc. in children. Dr. Melillo is the author of several books about childhood brain development disorders and the many factors that cause autism. Learn more about Dr. Melillo at drrobertmelillo.com.
