After losing his wife suddenly to a rare neuro-degenerative disorder (CJD), Dr. Greg Eckel completely changed his specialty (after 20+ years in practice) to brain regeneration.
He wrote a book – Shake It Off – about an integrative approach to Parkinson’s Disease and created a program he now offers in his clinics in Portland, Oregon and Park City, Utah.
Many types of neurodegeneration are on the rise, and at younger ages. It is estimated that by 2030, 50% of all adults over the age of 65 will have some form of mild cognitive impairment.
There are a couple medications that can decrease symptoms for some forms of dementia, but otherwise, conventional medicine has very few options to help.
Dr. Eckel, on the other hand, sees dramatic changes in his patients, with the return of memory, humor and functioning.
He sees his role and his work as helping patients to become whole again. That’s who we are – we are love and source. We leave the door open for that to occur. Separation is an illusion.
The nervous system is able to regrow and come back online. Given the right support, our bodies (and brains) can heal.
Brain Regeneration – This Episode
In this episode we talk about:
- The gut-brain connection and how important it is for healing the nervous system
- The ecosystem in our gut is essential for our health and our neurotransmitters
- The role heavy metals and other toxins play in neuro-degenerative conditions
All the treatment options he uses to help heal the nervous system: PEMF, acupuncture, bio-energetic resonance, peptides, herbal therapies, stem cells, and laser therapy help to aid Brain Regeneration.
Dr. Eckel figuring out that by using a laser to activate stem cells and then to direct the cells to where he wants them to go, he is able to stimulate the growth of healthy tissue.
He believes that the future of medicine uses frequency as medicine. Lasers use frequency. And our cells and mitochondria emit a frequency as well.
It’s about remembering what “healthy” is. We get separated and removed from it. By reminding the body how to find balance, we promote healing. More than anything, we wants people to know that it is possible to heal from many neurodegenerative conditions.
He offered listeners a gift of Qi Gong – which is a movement from Chinese medicine that assists with healing the brain.
I write about many of the therapies and approaches mentioned in this episode in my book, Master Your Stress, Reset Your Health.
