I recently had the pleasure of speaking with my good friend V, AKA PaleoBOSS Lady, with her daughter Nicki on on their “Up Your Volume” show! V is an MS survivor I met last year, and we have since been like two peas in a veritable pod. We relate on so many aspects of our recovery journeys.
We spent much of this year’s Paleo f(x) ‘thick as thieves,’ and it is so cool to call this smart, courageous, and all around bad-ass boss lady my friend!

“Join us for this exciting podcast where we will be joined by Traumatic Brain Injury survivor, Cavin Balaster. Cavin is a severe traumatic brain injury survivor, speaker, and educator with a mission is to help families, practitioners, and survivors of all kinds, by sharing the important information I learned throughout and after my recovery from TBI.
In 2011, Cavin survived a two-story fall, was comatose for twelve days, diagnosed with a diffuse axonal injury (DAI) and was given less than a 10% chance of recovery. Once awake, he suffered from severe brain fog, memory loss, breathing problems, double-vision, serious infections, and was ultimately unable to eat, walk, or talk for several months.
Cavin will share his insights into important factors that aided his recovery & how it feels 5 years later after suffering his injury. We are also excited to talk about a special project soon to be book that Cavin and others are working on regarding nutrition for those unable to eat. Join us for what is poised to be a LIVE podcast filled with information to up your volume. “
