Treatment by Dr. J Douglas Brown to Regenerate Neurotransmitter Levels
Changing the Brain for the Better
Until very recently it was believed that the human brain could not be changed in a controlled way, for the better. But neuroscientists have recently discovered otherwise, and it is now realized that the human brain has a very high level of “neuroplasticity”. The brain and its respective DNA are, in fact highly modifiable for the better. Thanks to various related discoveries in neuroscience, we can now effect and control changes to the brain in ways recently thought impossible. Conditions for treatment by Dr. J Douglas Brown include:
ADHD / PTSD
Autism Spectrum Disorder
Traumatic Brain Injuries
Improve Sports Performance
Improve Executive Performance
Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (dTMS)
In a nearly parallel time frame to understanding the inherent neuroplasticity of our brain, new technology passed from incubation through the initial tens of thousands of preliminary case studies on its way to FDA approval, and is now an option for “treatment-resistant depression." The new FDA-approved technology is Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (dTMS) and received FDA approval in 2008. The magnetic technology used in dTMS is very similar to MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) technology and employs the wonderful characteristic of being able to be utilized for good in relationship to the human body, without inflicting collateral damage.
dTMS regenerates the human brain’s ability to produce, release, and activate generous levels of neurotransmitters. Most of us are familiar with the well-known neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine. But neuroscientists have so far discovered over 200 other neurotransmitters, and indications are there are more to be discovered. This means that rather than use medications to treat one, two, or maybe three neurotransmitter levels, dTMS stimulates the increase in the release of all neurotransmitters (known and unknown).
Because dTMS has such a quick and dramatic elevating effect on the brain’s generation of neurotransmitters, there is almost no one who cannot benefit from properly implemented dTMS treatments, especially so when they are paired with neurological brain pathway restoration and refinement. Other than occasional mild headaches immediately during or shortly after the treatment, some side effects of dTMS may actually be benefits. Studies are already in place to measure the effectiveness of dTMS for weight loss, smoking cessation, drug addiction, and more. Dr. J Douglas Brown may also be able to help with these conditions (call to schedule an Assessment).
Elevate Brain Performance
Restoration of the brain’s ability to produce neurotransmitters in abundance, perhaps to a level that exceeds all prior levels of an individual’s adult life, has potential impact well beyond the elimination of even “treatment-resistant” depression. Highly elevated brain chemistry as a result of dTMS treatments may affect every aspect of brain performance, making a good mind better, a great mind even greater. Improved mental performance may help someone become a stronger role model for their children and family, a more dynamic and influential leader in their work place and community. Anyone’s mind may become sharper, faster, clearer, allowing them greater confidence and elevated control of their lives, empowering them to deliver greater impact and value to those they serve. It potentially offers a life experience that is more filled with happiness and purpose.
Your Primary Care Doctor is Included
Dr. Brown works with your existing Primary Care Provider (PCP) / Doctor, reviewing existing medications, additional labs needed, and target ranges for nutritional and metabolic levels. During the time a patient is being treated by Dr. Brown, he communicates with the patient’s PCP/Doctor regarding progress and changes, so the patient has the close involvement of the medical professional who knows the most about their health care history. Dr. Brown follows up with his patients for 6 months after the treatment program, to make recommendations and track the effectiveness of each individual treatment program.
