Neupanex

In a ‘friend of a friend’ type situation we were made aware of the work of Dr. Lewis K. Clark and his supplement Neupanex. Neupanex is referred to as the first intracranial helmet for the brain and supports protection and healing of the brain after severe insult. Dr. Clark practices in Webster, TX, a suburb […]

Therapies

Anat Baniel Method Our therapy journey began in New Orleans after Robert’s discharge from the hospital and our arrival at Harch Hyperbarics. Conventional speech/physical/occupational therapy were unavailable to us as ‘new patients’ with the average waiting time for a first appointment being five months. We were introduced to Andy Chrestman and the Anat Baniel Method […]

Essential Oils

We have used and continue to use essential oils in ministering to Robert. Before we discuss the specific oils used and why, it is important that the reader understand that essential oils run the gamut in quality and efficacy.

A single dose – the application and removal of increased pressure and/or increased oxygen – is called a dive – just as the body is subjected to an increase […]

Drop Foot and Bent Wrists

We recently had a family contact us about Drop Foot. Drop Foot is common with brain injury. So are bent wrists. Robert had a wrist and an ankle relax during the first 40 dives at Dr. Harch’s. The other side relaxed during the second round of dives at home.  Robert’s relaxed posture is still to […]

The Kitchen Sink

We are often asked which therapy or treatment made the biggest difference for Robert. I will answer this below but it is important to know that we agreed, early on, that we were going to throw “everything and the kitchen sink” at healing his brain injury and, hopefully, argue later about what made the biggest […]
