Miraculous Breakthrough Treatment for Stroke & Severe Brain Injury?

Edward Tobinick, M.D. is an American physician, inventor, and scientist. He is the founder of the Institute of Neurological Recovery in Los Angeles and Boca Raton, Florida 1 . Dr. Tobinick is best known for his invention of the breakthrough perispinal etanercept (PSE) stroke treatment 1 . Perispinal etanercept (PSE) is a treatment that involves administering the drug etanercept above the spine 2 . Etanercept is normally used to treat arthritis, but Dr. Tobinick discovered that it could also be effective in treating stroke symptoms when administered perispinally 3 . The treatment was first developed by Dr. Tobinick in 2010 3 . There is good evidence that perispinal administration of etanercept works extremely well for stroke recovery. Improvements in chronic post-stroke symptoms with etanercept are usually rapid, within 10 minutes, and long-lasting 3 . The treatment appears to be beneficial for most patients, even more than three years after a stroke 3 . In 2019, a double-blinded rand

Randall Vahab Hall: The Man Who Woke Up From a Two-Year Coma

Randall Vahab Hall, also known as Comadude, is a remarkable man who survived a near-fatal brain injury and woke up from a two-year coma. His story is one of courage, resilience, and hope. Hall was a successful businessman who owned seven clothing stores in California. He was also an avid traveler, adventurer, and actor. He had a passion for life and enjoyed every moment of it. But everything changed on March 30, 2000, when he was involved in an accident that left him with severe brain damage. He was rushed to the hospital and underwent several surgeries to remove blood clots and relieve pressure on his brain. He was put into a medically induced coma to help him heal. For the next two years, Hall remained in a coma, unaware of his surroundings and unable to communicate. His family and friends visited him regularly, hoping for a miracle. They played music, read books, and talked to him, trying to stimulate his brain. Meanwhile, doctors were pessimistic about his chances of recovery. They

Bringing coma patients back to life: Germany's Kliniken Schmieder sets the world standard (and we've successfully copied some of their techniques in our home care routine)

Kliniken Schmieder is a network of specialized clinics in Germany that offer comprehensive and innovative services for patients with neurological disorders. Founded in 1950 by Prof. Dr. Friedrich Schmieder, Kliniken Schmieder has been a pioneer and quality leader in neurological rehabilitation for over 70 years¹². Kliniken Schmieder treats all neurological diseases in all degrees of severity, such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, epilepsy, encephalitis, chronic pain, sleep disorders, and more¹². The clinics have a multidisciplinary team of experienced doctors, therapists, nurses, and researchers who provide individualized and evidence-based care for each patient. Kliniken Schmieder also has a strong focus on research and innovation, with its own research institute and collaborations with university hospitals. The clinics use the latest technologies and methods to diagnose, treat and rehabilitate neurological patie

Activities for Stimulation of Persons with Low Arousal - BIAPA

  Sensory Stimulation:  Activates the limbic system to help generate goal-directed behaviors   Emotion-provoking stimuli enhance amygdaloid activity to facilitate limbic system activation.   Benefits from sensory stimulation are boosted if it is delivered by persons familiar to the comatose patient.

1 in 5 patients with "unresponsive wakefulness" is conscious. This neuroscientist finds them.

What if vegetative patients are conscious? Neuroscientist Adrian Owen, author of Into The Gray Zone and a professor at Western University in Canada, is using fMRI technology to try to reach the people who may still be aware of their surroundings. Consciousness has traditionally been assessed by asking patients to respond to verbal commands. Through brain imaging, Dr Owen and his team were able to prove that these tests are inadequate, and it's estimated that 20 percent of vegetative patients are conscious but are physically incapable of communicating it. "Communication is the thing that really makes us human," says Dr. Owen. "If we can give these patients back the ability to make decisions, I think we can give them back a little piece of their humanity." ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- DR ADRIAN OWEN: Dr Adrian Owen is a Professor at The Brain and Mind Institute, Western University, Canada and the former Cana
