Exciting new research shows that when the adult brain is damaged it can repair itself. Brain cells that have been injured have the capability of re-growing new connections that, under the right conditions, can help to restore lost function.
In this episode, Dr. Christine Schaffner and Dr. Greg Eckel discuss regenerative medicine and the development of a progressive brain regenerative program.
Dr. Greg Eckel became increasingly aware of and concerned about the overuse of medications with children while teaching preschool, and this experience inspired his entry into Naturopathic and Chinese Medicine. In 2001 he co-founded Nature Cures Clinic. The combination of Naturopathic and Chinese Medicine (acupuncture and botanical medicine) has provided Dr. Eckel with a variety of tools to treat both acute and chronic illness while valuing the principles of prevention and wellness.
