Join Dr. Merry for a free talk on Concussion and Dementia
Is there a link between concussion and dementia? How many concussions have you had? How many fender benders (even minor ones) have you had? Does the health history of your family make you nervous about the health of your brain?
What is neural plasticity and how can we use it to our advantage?
In our upcoming presentation, Dr. Merry Harris will share:
The earliest sign of dementia.
How to mitigate the effects of concussion to help you have a healthier brain for life!
A 60 second exercise that you can do to calm your brain and make new neural pathways.
When: Saturday, Oct. 31, 2015 from noon - 2pm
Where: Vitamin Life, downtown Redmond (2 doors west of Trader Joe's) [map]
I'm doing a lecture entitled 'Concussion & Dementia' on Oct 31, 2015, from noon until 2PM at Vitamin Life in downtown Redmond. I have studied concussion as well as treated several concussion patients with great results. The most important thing when treating a patient with concussion or dementia is assessing the fatigueability rate of the nerve cells. When there is much inflammation or degeneration in a brain, it is of utmost importance to be careful not to damage any more nerve cells. A careful examination is the key to determining how weak pathways are in a brain. See you at the lecture! Come and be inspired.
I just watched a TED talk by Dr. Terry Wahls. I highly recommend it. It about the health of our mitochondria. One hundred years ago we were battling infectious diseases. Now we have traded these for autoimmune diseases and cancer. Think about it.
