Why We Need Functional Neurology
The mainstream neurologist looks only at the brain for his assessment and diagnosis. The Functional Neurologist in his search for the cause of brain related health problems, also considers how brain function is influenced by other body systems, lifestyle patterns and the environment in which we live.
It's true that the brain runs the body. It is also true that the brain is itself influenced by other body systems including thyroid function, blood sugar imbalances, gut function, autoimmune factors, circulation and 'outside' factors such as sedentary lifestyles, stress, sleeping patterns and environmental pollution.
