Your brain is comprised of parts, shocker– right?
There is the Cerebellum in the back of the brain and the Frontal Lobe located behind your forehead. Between those two parts there is the Parietal Lobe, an Occipital Lobe, and a Temporal Lobe working on either side of the brain. Let’s think of them as appliances in your kitchen. Just as each appliance has a very specific job to do, so do the parts of your brain.
Sometimes these appliances break down. If you open up your refrigerator and find that your milk has spoiled and that your ice cream has melted, then you know your refrigerator needs some tending to. Similarly, when a part of the brain malfunctions, then what that part of the brain controls will not work the way it is supposed to.
You may begin to notice that you have severe headaches or problems with balance, vision changes, or trouble getting your words out while speaking to someone. If you are unaware of what part of the brain controls these abilities then you will not know where the weak link in your brain is located or what to do about it.
Johnson Brain Based Rehabilitation is a series of natural procedures used to identify, exercise, and strengthen weak parts of the brain by using sensory stimulation. It begins with a functional neurological examination of the brain to find out where any weak links are located.
When you come to see me there are certain things you may do or feel that let me know your brain is breaking down in particular areas. Once I know where the weakness is I am able to use natural procedures to stimulate very specific areas of your brain in order to restore function.
The human brain can be damaged just like the skin of our bodies can. If we get a scrape on our arm it is called a lesion. The brain can also get lesions. When this happens it is because an area of tissue has been damaged through disease or injury.
There are many types of brain lesions, some relatively harmless and some very dangerous. There are soft lesions and there are hard lesions. Typically hard brain legions are cared for medically. Soft or functional lesions occur when the brain is not receiving enough stimulation and in turn not getting enough activity.
We must exercise our brains just like we need to exercise our bodies or the brain will deteriorate. Brain Based Therapy seeks to reverse these soft lesions through stimulating your senses and training your brain to be active and healthy again. This ability for the brain to change, by adding new neurons and new connections is called neuroplasticity.
Let’s take a moment to understand the great importance of your central nervous system. The central nervous system is comprised of your brain and spinal cord and it is the MASTER CONTROL CENTER and information distribution system of your body. It needs both fuel and activation to survive, thrive, and recover from damage. Sometimes it does not get an adequate dose of these two very important elements and that is when degeneration begins to occur.
Johnson Brain Based Rehabilitation takes into account that the nervous system is a sensory driven system. Each one of your senses is an input to your brain. Your brain receives signals from your senses and responds based on the information it receives. Without input there will be no output. Without stimulation the brain loses its ability to control very important functions and it is these malfunctions that produce many of the symptoms in chronic illnesses.
The brain depends upon crucial inputs to maintain healthy functioning and that is why Johnson Brain Based Rehabilitation is so important and effective. I utilize sight, sound, touch, movement, vibration, heat, cold, light, and other natural tools to interrupt abnormal patterns within your brain and bring them back into balance. By using Johnson Brain Based Rehabilitation we are able to strengthen the brain and restore its many pathways and connections.
At Johnson Health & Wellness Center, we have specialized tests to measure if you are receiving enough fuel and activation to your central nervous system. If you are not receiving an adequate amount of activation we are able to improve the health of your brain by using specific exercises and stimulations that target these weak areas.
We also thoroughly check your body chemistry with lab tests for any factors that would interfere with good fuel delivery to your central nervous system and then go about correcting these factors.
The combination of Johnson Brain Based Rehabilitation and functional metabolic testing and treatment is called Neuro-Metabolic Therapy (NMT). NMT is what allows me to help you when others have given up or failed to dig deep enough to get to the root of your chronic nightmare.
There is hope with these specific rehabilitation therapies!
