Can the brain repair itself? Can
it regenerate after damage? Will there be a full recovery after a
brain injury? I bring in a friend to talk about the latest
advances in neuronal repair. In practice since 2001, Dr. Greg
Eckel, co-founder of Nature’s Cure clinic in Portland where he
shares what he calls "Sarieah's gifts" with the world, has focused
on chronic degenerative and neurodegenerative diseases for many
Between the latest online fads and the crazy media headlines, it’s easier more than ever to get confused about your health. If you want to make better decisions about your health so you can feel better and live longer, you’ve come to the right place.
As a loving husband and clinician, he took a deep dive into medical research looking for cures to his wife's Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, a rare, chronic neurodegenerative condition with no known cure. While he didn’t find a solution for Sarieah, the information he discovered and now uses in his clinic is showing promise for thousands of people.
