Written by traumatic brain injury survivor, chiropractor and nutritionist, Dr. Susan Plank, shares the nutritional protocols and associated research she relied upon to boost her memory and cognitive function. Dr. Plank suffered her traumatic brain injury (TBI) while volunteering in Slidell, Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina. She intimately understands the frustration of struggling with forgetfulness, balance issues, insomnia, depression and anger outbursts that are all hallmarks of brain injury. She is keenly aware of the changes traumatic brain injury makes in a survivor's personality and how survivors and family members are looking for more improvement to return to the person they once were. Reversing Brain Injury Naturally is a must read for those who have suffered traumatic or acquired brain injury or even those that might be losing their "cognitive edge" due to aging or environmental factors. Easy to read and implement it's a fantastic self-help book for those individuals or families that are suffering the effects of brain injury and the hope of further improvement for their physical, mental and emotional health. Dr. Plank says her cognitive rehab therapy was invaluable for her recovery but feels the eight steps outlined in this book improved her overall health dramatically when her cognitive therapy ended. She hopes it will help empower other brain injury survivors as well!
