I love that we get to interview these brilliant practitioners! This week, Michelle and I are so excited to talk about dysautonomia, brain injury, and hangovers (seriously) with Dr. Nathaniel Keiser, a functional neurologist with specialty recognition in vestibular rehabilitation, childhood developmental disorders, neurochemistry, movement disorders, and traumatic brain injury. Dr. Keiser earned his BSc in Kinesiology from Michigan State University and his Doctorate of Chiropractic studies at Life University in Marietta, GA before going on to study functional neurology and receiving a diplomate in chiropractic neurology by the American Board of Chiropractic Neurology.
Needless to say, Dr. Nate Keiser knows his stuff and he has a beautiful way of breaking it all down for us! Dr. Keiser explains how Functional Neurology is the healthcare of the future available now and we devote most of our time together to the discussion of how the brain assigns resources to the body, and what can go wrong. Often this occurs with autonomic functions like the heart, digestion, the lungs, and other organs in the body that are vital to life, that are always functioning, and that we don’t need to think about… Unless we have dysautonomia which, at a minor level can be strikingly similar to a hangover, to indigestion, or even to hormonal problems. There are many ways to reestablish brain health, which often is at the root of these problems, and we touch on why and how misdiagnosis occurs and what might be possible effective treatments.
