Functional Neurology

Functional Neurology is all about brain regeneration and rehabilitation. In short, optimising brain health as much as possible. We factor in ALL influences on brain health and what is going to bring about the biggest change. This forms the basis of the Brainsharp Program.

Introduction

The mainstream neurologist looks only at the brain for his assessment and diagnosis. The functional neurologist on the other hand looks not only at the brain but also how brain health and function is itself influenced by other systems in the body and its environment. For example, we know that brain health including focus, concentration and memory are strongly affected by low thyroid function. We also know that stress has a huge impact on brain function and mental health and other criteria like quality of sleep and exercise are critical factors.

THUS WE USE ALL THIS INFORMATION TO CREATE TREATMENT PROGRAMS BASED ON INDIVIDUAL NEEDS AND REQUIREMENTS TO OPTIMISE BRAIN FUNCTION.

WHY WE NEED 

FUNCTIONAL NEUROLOGY

AS A SOCIETY WE NEED A BETTER APPROACH TO UNDERSTANDING BRAIN HEALTH AND MEMORY

Memory loss does not have to be about dementia. There are so many other factors involved

To optimise brain function first address the priorities of the body

When you combine multiple approaches you can make great strides in brain health

THE HEALTH OF THE BODY AND THE HEALTH OF THE BRAIN ARE INTIMATELY CONNECTED

BRAIN REHABILITATION IS A MULTI LEVEL PHILOSOPHY THAT CAN DRAMATICALLY IMPROVE FUNCTION

How Is Functional Neurology Different ?

There are no drugs that have any real impact on memory loss, Alzheimer's or dementia.  Despite spending billions of dollars the pharmaceutical industry has got nowhere in their search for a silver bullet. 

However there is a ton of excellent research, all documented, about the improvements that can be made through nutrition, diet and lifestyle in conjunction with nutritional and herbal medicines. 

THIS RESEARCH OFFERS REAL HOPE AND IS THE BASIS FOR OUR ASSESSMENTS AND TREATMENT RECOMMENDATIONS. 

Brain Fog, Cognitive Decline And Memory Loss Can Come From Four Different Sources. 

  • lifestyle issues ( affecting the brain )

  • metabolic dysfunction ( health problems affecting the brain eg hypothyroid )

  • brain degeneration

  • neurodegenerative  disease

How does The Brainsharp Program get to the root cause ?

We have a four step process

1. SYMPTOM PROFILING

Brain Profiles

Metabolic Profile

Lifestyle Profile

2. LABORATORY STUDIES

Blood Tests

Urine Tests

Saliva Tests

3. NEUROCOGNITIVE TESTING

The MOCA Test

CNS Vital Signs

( early stage dementia only )

4. ADVANCED ASSESSMENTS

Neurological Examination

MRI Scan

( early stage dementia only )

NB the tests you will need will be determined at the preliminary consultation
