Cerebral Hypoxia

Alternative Treatment for Cerebral Hypoxia

Cerebral hypoxia refers to a condition in which there was decreased oxygen supply to the brain, causing permanent damage. Drowning, strangling, choking, suffocation, cardiac arrest, head trauma, carbon monoxide poisoning, and complications of general anesthesia can create conditions that can lead to cerebral hypoxia. Symptoms of cerebral hypoxia include inattentiveness, poor judgment, memory loss, and a decrease in motor coordination. Brain cells are extremely sensitive to oxygen deprivation and can begin to die within five minutes after oxygen supply has been cut off.

Our Approach to Cerebral Hypoxia

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

There are no drugs on the market that can restore brain cells which have been damaged due to hypoxia. And while various kinds of therapies can be helpful, they cannot address the root cause of underlying brain imbalances.

So, what are the root causes of the imbalances created by hypoxia? Recent advances in neuroscience reveal the root causes include a lack of blood flow and oxygen to the brain, lack of specific brain chemicals, and brainwave imbalances.

Let’s look at these root causes a little more in depth: Inside the brain, we have billions of brain cells, called neurons, sending electrical signals to each other, which we measure as brainwaves. These electrical signals cause the brain cells to release small chemicals called neurotransmitters, such as serotonin, dopamine, and adrenaline.

This vast network of brain cells is fed with oxygen and other nutrients by blood from over 100,000 miles of blood vessels inside the brain. For people who have suffered from hypoxia, there is often not enough of these blood vessels supplying oxygen and important nutrients.

This lack of nutrients begins to cause brainwave imbalances, as measured by an EEG scan. This, in turn, causes a downstream effect on brain chemicals called neurotransmitters, meaning that the brain cells start producing too little or too much of the chemicals they need. These neurotransmitters imbalances are further exacerbated by nutritional deficiencies in the person’s diet, especially of key vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids.

Neurofeedback Therapy

Neurofeedback allows us to retrain the brain to achieve optimal efficiency. With a qEEG (quantitative electroencephalogram), a device that looks like a swimming cap, we are able to see inside the brain to measure your brain waves.

Using state-of-the-art equipment, we are then able to train your brain by presenting it with a view of its activity. It’s like giving the brain a mirror to see when it is operating at an optimal cognitive balance and when it deviates from that balance.

Neurofeedback training helps you get “in the zone” and is used by many athletes. It also has many therapeutic benefits.

Naturopathic Services

Our mission is to teach clients how to nourish their bodies and minds by paying attention to everything they take in, noticing the effect on their daily lives, and empowering them to make ever-healthier choices.

Nutrition coaching provides the information and support you need to learn to enjoy health-building foods, create a healthy living environment, and feel good in your body.
