Brain and Neurological Health
Emotional well-being. When we have it, we take it for granted. When we don’t, everything we try to do seems a struggle.
When the brain works well, a complex symphony of neurotransmitters work together for good. When the brain misfires, the results can be personally, socially, relationally, and professionally debilitating: depression, anxiety, panic episodes, insomnia, fatigue, ADD/ADHD.
When the brain REALLY misfires, the results can be crippling and truly terrifying: Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, vascular dementia, Multiple Sclerosis, Lou Gehrig’s disease.
So what causes the brain to misfire? What disturbs the symphony? As you might guess, a variety of factors play a role: things like genetic predisposition, previous life experiences, stress, nutritional deficiencies, oxidation and chronic inflammation. Here’s the good news: there are a number of non-pharmaceutical, non-prescription steps you can take to improve, restore, and maintain optimal brain health. At Living With Intention, Dr. Elliott can identify those elements of your unique biochemical makeup that may be causing brain health problems. He can then formulate a plan utilizing brain exercises, lifestyle changes, counseling, and nutrition to restore your brain to the harmony it was designed to sing from the beginning.
