Healing The Brain
The Klinghardt Brain Solutions conference was a 3-day event filled with lots of valuable information about what is at the root cause of problems such as Autism, ALS, MS Alzheimer’s and persistent Lyme disease. In this blog post I will write about some of the highlights from the main talk Healing the Brain, given by Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt.
The Underlying Causes Of Brain Dysfunction:
- Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR).
This includes exposure to EMR from cell phones, cordless phones, smart meters, baby monitors, some home lighting and other man-made devices producing electrosmog. Exposure to EMR produces cumulative effects and is destructive to the brain, DNA and microbiome.
Metals such as mercury, aluminum, and lead, organophosphates, wood preservatives, phthalates, bisphenol A, petrochemicals and pesticides including glyphosate are some of the toxins we are constantly being exposed to. There is evidence that all of these toxins contribute to the deterioration of health including brain health in various ways.
Including mold, viruses, bacteria, and parasites.
- Genetics and Epigenetics.
Note that although both genetics and epigenetics increase vulnerability to brain dysfunction and certain brain disorders they are rarely the underlying cause.
The 4 Principles Of Treating The Brain:
- Balance Basic Physiology and Biochemistry.
Here we establish the foundation by addressing diet, exercise, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, hormone deficiencies, and structural imbalances. This step can involve treatment with supplements, herbs, homeopathics, nutrient intravenous therapy, neural therapy, family constellation work, and other therapies to support better functioning of the body.
- Decrease Toxic Body Burden.
This step involves removing any toxin that the individual may have been and/or currently is being exposed to, including metals, herbicides, pesticides, solvents and preservatives. Living on plant earth we are constantly exposed to toxins and so detoxification is a lifelong pursuit. Ionic footbaths, infrared sauna therapy, melatonin, herbs such as cilantro, therapeutic ultrasound, and manual lymphatic drainage are some of the tools that can help with removing toxins from the brain and detoxify the body as a whole.
- Immune Modulation.
Most brain dysfunction is caused by an immune system that is either hyper- or hypoactive. The goal of immune modulation is to help bring the immune system back into balance. Herbs, homeopathic medications, and low dose immunotherapy are some of the tools that can be used to balance the immune system.
- Decrease Microbial Burden.
Once the first four steps have been addressed it is time to focus on “killing the bugs”. Parasites, mold, viruses, bacteria, and protozoal infections can all play a role in brain dysfunction and need to be addressed for the brain to finally return to a state of health. In this step herbs, supplements, intravenous therapy, and pharmaceutical medications are some of the tools that can be utilized to eradicate the bugs.
