What Is Integrative Neurology?
Integrative Neurology utilizes a synthesis of conventional neurological assessment with integrative and functional medicine systems investigations, formulations and recommendations, to help identify and unwind multiple contributors to brain and body-brain health challenges.
Assessments for Identifying Problems and Tracking Changes
- Laboratory assessments of nutritional, metabolic and immune function, toxic and microbial status, and actionable genetic vulnerabilities, to identify avenues of improvement through nutrition, diet and lifestyle modifications
- Regulatory thermometry, a quantitative assessment of organ and autonomic nervous system function to identify early signs of problems
- Heart Rate Variability (HRV): a measure of the function of the parasympathetic nervous system, the relaxation arm of the body’s stress regulation system (the autonomic nervous system)
- Transcranial Low-Level Light Therapy: gentle, non-invasive application of light to the brain (called “photobiomodulation”) through shining light on the head, which supports brain energy metabolism and blood flow and reduces inflammatory processes, allowing the brain to function more effectively
- Infraslow fluctuation (ISF) neurofeedback: a method for bringing more inner awareness and coherence to the brain’s very slow regulatory rhythms, which underlie and are the carrier frequencies for higher cortical functions.
