About The Author
In June of 2007, I had a global, acquired brain injury (ABI) resulting from a suicide attempt, technically termed encepalopathy. I was seriously mentally impaired. Through such practices as neurofeedback, Brain State Technologies’ brain optimization, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, acupuncture, voice therapy, music therapy, cranial sacral massage, hypercapnia, visualization, meditation, cross lateral movement, bikram yoga, daily cardiovascular exercise, cognitive behavioral therapy and more, I have made a remarkable recovery and continue to improve. I still talk funny and have some slight manual dexterity issues, but, even with those, I am better than ever.
By changing my thoughts and perception of life, I have changed my world and this, in turn, has changed my physical brain and my default mode of brain operation. Our brains are neuroplastic, and we can shape them and change them by the things we do repeatedly in our lives. We have much more power to recover from a brain injury, improve our brain’s functioning, and to create our own happiness and reality with our brain than we ever knew. Neuroplasticity is the magic wand we all have. I like to share information about the tools to do this, the journeys I and others have been on to accomplish this and encourage you to embark upon your own.
