Not All Illnesses Can Be Seen
A lot of illnesses are noticeable from the outside, and as a result, they’re more straightforward to detect, measure, and treat. On the other hand, there are many conditions that remain a mystery, even through the testing process. With multiple visits to multiple doctors, those afflicted with painful, troublesome symptoms are tasked with finding out what’s wrong with themselves, sometimes finding no answer. This can be frustrating, leading a patient to think they’re crazy, and ending up with no proper treatment at all.
You’re Not Crazy
We, at Cerebrum Health Centers, are here to tell you that you’re not crazy. It’s not uncommon for patients to experience an array of symptoms, with scans coming out clean. Though seemingly invisible, these conditions or illnesses are very real and need to be investigated properly. That said, it’s a hard truth to acknowledge that not all medical centers have the equipment and expertise needed to do what needs to be done.
Down to Cerebral Specifics
Cerebrum labs are more extensive than what may be typical elsewhere, allowing the true detection of specific problems based on specific symptoms, as well as areas of origination of those symptoms. What is often recommended as a “normal range” for certain functions in the body, Cerebrum doctors believe shouldn’t be viewed so broadly.
In fact, when we examine a patient’s labs, we are looking at what their “optimal range” should be – not their “normal range.” Our doctors take into account details that everyday doctors may glaze over, such as certain lowered levels of various nutrients in the body, which could point to causes of telltale symptoms, indicating a particular disorder. You see, in a damaged brain, if the body chemistry is not working optimally (or efficiently), that’s something for the brain/body to focus on, which detracts from its ability to apply energy and resources to healing the damage in the brain.
Cerebrum’s Dr. Brock is a world renowned specialist in understanding how the slightest variation in one health factor combined with another actually points to a much bigger underlying cause.
The Truth About Nutrition
The average medical professional only receives about 4 or 5 hours of nutritional education during medical school, and we are finding out more and more just how critical proper nutrition is to every aspect of good health, especially when it comes to the brain.
All our clinicians are extensively trained on how to interpret detailed lab values and see what they reveal about the root cause of the individual’s symptoms, as that is a major factor when the clinicians create a custom treatment approach for that individual.
Having a multi-disciplinary team of different kinds of medical specialists creates a productive environment, in which we collaborate as a team on each case to make sure nothing is missed. This ends up being way more effective than the patient having gone to one specialist, then another specialist, and then another.
Think of It Like This
If your tool is a hammer, you tend to treat every problem as if it were a nail. This often happens with specialists. But a team of specialists, like the Cerebrum team, has a whole toolbox at their disposal and can choose which tools are most effective at tackling the problem at hand.
