Leveling Up: Creating Everything from Nothing with Natalie Jill

Share with friends

“I had never heard of functional neurology until my hand and wrist stopped working well after my Distal Bicep Tear Repair. When I met Dr. Barbakoff and learned of Oculus Brain Center I was blown away by their approach to chronic pain, brain fog, migraines and athletic performance.

It all sounded so far out there to me until I started working with them directly on my own recovery.They opened my eyes to a whole new approach to treatments and the idea of Neuroplasticity.

You see, functional neurologists are trained to detect subtle changes in the nervous system and often times detect conditions early before they become pathological.

Dysfunction of neurological systems can occur at a level and may not be detected through advanced imaging techniques because there may not be a  pathological origin of damage. 

Many of their patients, as she shares in our conversation,  end up their offices with normal brain scans wondering why they are still having symptoms. This is because many higher imaging techniques are not sensitive enough to detect the subtle changes in the brain in people with conditions such as migraine headaches, post-concussion syndrome, and many forms of dizziness or vertigo.

Once the root cause has been identified, they can apply the most precise, conservative treatment program, specific to each individual case in order to achieve maximum results. 

Today, Join in today as I chat with Dr. Barbakoff about Functional Neurology, and why this form of treatment can help you.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • What is functional neurology 
  • How this technique can help you with almost anything
  • Why it’s important to look into new forms of healing
  • If this would be something that would work for you or not”
