We at the TMC look at TBI as involving much secondary injury. Cerebral blood flow is deeply affected, and Neuroexcitotoxicity, a condition in which the brain literally gets engulfed In an inflammatory wildfire results.
This causes many other changes in the brain such as hormonal deficiencies, disturbances in neurotransmitter balance, and overall disturbances in endocrine functioning.
Through the Miletic Center’s specialized lab testing, we will identify these deficiencies and disturbances. Together with you, we will review your results and demonstrate the processes to help you understand your body’s integrative workings. Our team of experts will work with you to develop a treatment plan emphasizing full restoration of all systems and enhancing your brain and body health.

OUR APPROACH TO TBI
Conventional medications (antidepressants, anti-anxiety, anti-seizure, anti-psychotic, and narcotics) do nothing to address the underlying causes that create the symptoms associated with TBI (Post-Concussion Syndrome) because they fail to replenish the missing neurosteroids (brain hormones).
