On October 27, 2016 there was a feature on The Nature of Things on CBC about Dr. Norman Doidge and his research and book about The Brains Way of Healing.

For anyone who has experienced a brain trauma, Dr. Doidge provides hope and has changed the verbiage surrounding brain trauma like:

          • “this is as good as it gets” or
          • “the brain does not heal” or 
          • “no, we don’t have a treatment for autism that works

And changes the words to:

          1. Let’s try Bioflex Laser Therapy or 
          2. The PoNS™ Device or
          3.  The LED light helmet for PTSD

I was initially introduced to Dr. Doidge’s book The Brain That Changes Itself almost 8 years ago, and it was the first time that I actually saw my brain injury in print. When I read the case studies presented in that first book, I was able to piece together my brain injury and put the practice of neuroplasticity into my daily recovery.

Dr. Doidge’s new book The Brain’s Way of Healing provided a scientific view of all types of brain trauma based on the neurons in the brain miss-firing.

While watching the Nature of Things segment it became apparent, that technology has caught up with brain trauma, and is providing a new and exciting avenue for recovery for all types of brain trauma.

  • For anyone who has experienced a brain trauma in the past, it is not too late. 
  • For the caregiver who is looking for answers for recovery, kudos for all the research you have done so far for the person you care about. 
  • For all physicians who are involved from diagnosis to recovery you can now provide hope and a better way. If people are being diagnosed today with any type of brain trauma here are the links that will be important during their recovery.

Our work is just beginning but thank you to Dr. Doidge and other professionals for not giving up on us.

Thanks from a Brain Injured Person
