Welcome to Adventures in Brain Injury!
Thanks so much for taking an interest and stopping by!
Emergency medicine and conventional care saved my life. I would be dead if not for the incredible work of the many specialists that I saw throughout my hospitalization. In the aftermath of repairing my broken brain, I can attribute the bulk of my healing to functional nutrition, functional neurology, neuro optometry (developmental optometry), physical and occupational therapy, and other targeted therapies.
Throughout my long recovery, I documented each important event, spending many hours studying neuro-rehabilitation in an attempt to better understand and heal my body and brain. With over 60,000 words and 80 detailed entries, my growing blog, “Adventures in Brain Injury,” began to receive international attention triggering the a journey beyond recovery that transformed my life. This journey has led me to the work of corresponding with practitioners and guiding other brain injury survivors and their families. I have been fascinated by, and have done extensive research on, the relationship between the brain and the gut, and the brain and the eye, and how this relationship affects everyone, not just TBI patients.
In an effort to share my story with as many families as possible, I launched a successful Kickstarter campaign in order to raise funds to distribute a book about my life before the accident, sustaining a traumatic brain injury, and the important details of my recovery process. “Lights, Coma, Action!“ is estimated to be out in November 2017.
I currently live in Austin, TX, where I work to spread awareness about health, wellness, conscious living, and recovery. I am in the process of creating affordable and available resources for the many families who are in search of guidance and information, just like my family was after my fall.
How Can My Experience Help You?
While this blog was originally made to document my recovery, this website is no longer about me… It’s about you. I want to help you to improve your brain function and repair. The most important thing for us to realize is that we hold the tools to improve our brain health, but we need to know how to use them, and I want to show you what I’ve learned and continue to learn.
Whether you are a survivor of serious injury, a support for someone, a physician, therapist, practitioner, or a health-conscious person who desires a greater understanding of the brain, you’ve come to the right place. So I welcome you to join me on this adventure and to read more about my detailed recovery journey, including pictures, an FAQ, and information about my work by signing up for our newsletter. As a thank you, I’ll send you “My TBI Story” and other free eBooks as I produce them!
“My TBI Story” is an overview of the events leading up to my severe traumatic brain injury, the many stages of my recovery, and the road my life has taken since. I’ve included a short FAQ and a list of resources that I and other survivors have found useful.
