  • HEALED: Chronic Nausea, Dizziness & Balance Problems

    ​Lilly suffered 7 months of nausea, dizziness & balance problems after a bout of autoimmune inner disease. Her metabolic treatment plan had her feeling 50% better. And she was thrilled with her progress. However, she still couldn't go running or jog because when she stopped moving, the world continued to move--and this made her dizzy and nauseous. She couldn't work out (particularly squats), or coach lacrosse without losing her balance and falling down. She lost her ability to do a cartwheel. But after 4 days of Clark Brain-Based Rehabilitation, she feels NORMAL again. What an inspiring story! (and she did a cartwheel!)

  • Stunning Lack Of Follow Up Care For Patients With Concussion/mTBI

    New research has discovered that less than 50% of patients with mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) seen at an ER receive educational material at hospital discharge… or see a medical practitioner within 3 months of their injury. These patients had significant POST CONCUSSION symptoms (headaches, dizziness, nausea, cognitive problems, mood, and sleep disturbances)… but weren’t being followed up on by ANYONE…and the patients weren’t seeking any help. Why? One answer is in the name itself, calling it “mild” TBI. So doctors AND patients don’t take the injury seriously enough…or the patient thinks that things ought to get better on their own. I wish I could say this news was surprising. But it’s not. Thousands of people who’ve suffered a concussion (aka mild TBI) are left to wander the healthcare wasteland. If your concussion symptoms clear up completely within a couple of weeks, count yourself lucky. About 30% of concussion sufferers are NOT better after a couple of months…they are the Miserable Minority. Look, if you suffer a concussion, make sure you seek help–at least an evaluation if nothing else–from someone who is trained in recognizing, diagnosing AND treating Brain Injuries.

  • Using Clinical Neurochemistry to Successfully Treat Vestibular Disorders

    I’m thrilled to be presenting at the 2018 International Symposium on Clinical Neuroscience in Orlando in just a few days. I’ll be speaking on “Using Clinical Neurochemistry to Successfully Treat Vestibular Disorders.” Basically, I’m giving the short story on how I use non-drug nutrition/functional medicine to reduce and eliminate the symptoms of the following: Meniere’s Disease Chronic dizziness and Balance Problems Vertigo BPPV (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo) I’ll be explaining how the IMMUNE-VESTIBULAR AXIS plays a huge role in those conditions above, and what can be done–without drugs–to address the immune system issues in people with those conditions. I’ve worked my tail off to make this presentation interesting, up-to-date, referenced, and above all…practically useful for the doctors in attendance. Hopefully, it will inspire them to get FULLY trained…or at least be able to recognize when they should REFER to a doctor who IS fully trained in how to do this kind of treatment. Can’t wait!

  • Your “Adrenal Fatigue” Supplement May Be CONTAMINATED

    New research in the Mayo Clinic Proceedings has discovered that 12 popular adrenal support supplements actually contained THYROID hormones and steroids not disclosed on the label. Shockingly, all twelve of the supplements marketed as energy and metabolism boosters for “adrenal fatigue” contained THYROID hormone (T3). Seven contained STEROID hormones. 5 of that 7 contained Pregnenolone. Pregnenolone is also called the “mother hormone.” It’s a precursor for basically all your steroid hormones. I can’t give you the names of these 12 contaminated supplements, because the study doesn’t name them either. Believe me, I’d like to know too. “Adrenal Fatigue” is supposed to indicate a problem with the adrenal glands producing both cortisol and DHEA. These days, though, everyone uses it generically. If you’re tired…you have adrenal fatigue. But it really isn’t that simple. Why? Well, what if your fatigue is from iron deficiency, or folate deficiency, or malfunctioning mitochondria? The treatment is different for each of these…no to mention tracking down the ultimate root cause for each of them. Look, if you’re fatigued and feel bad–please don’t try to doctor your self, and definitely don’t go to Dr. Google. Best case scenario -you get a little relief for a little while, but no long term fix. Worst case scenario – you waste time, money and expose yourself to contaminated supplements with hormones that can cause BIG problems. Please find a doctor that is experienced AND knowledgeable about how to track down AND treat all of these possible causes of fatigue: • Deficiencies in Iron, Vitamin D, B12, Folate • Blood sugar imbalances (hypoglycemia and insulin resistance) • Imbalances in androgens, progesterone, estrogens • Neuroinflammation • Autoimmunity • Thyroid hormone dysfunction • Viral infections • Parasite infections • Mitochondrial malfunction (aka mitochondropathy) • Neurological malfunction in the circuits that control blood flow (dysautonomia)
