In the last 25 years, many studies have shown that trauma during childhood was “significantly associated with poorer health outcomes, health risk behaviors, and socioeconomic challenges,” including depression, heavy drinking, smoking, lower educational attainment, and unemployment. The Brain Protocol evolved over the last three decades as a therapeutic means to reverse the effects of these traumas. Trauma underlies chronic disease. This presentation will provide an overview of the 7 phases of development from
conception through the golden years. The protocol has been utilized successfully for hundreds of patients over the last 3 decades and will be a preview for “Begin Again, Trauma, Disease and Healing with the Brain Protocol and Biological Medicine”.

Course Description

Many patients do not return to their doctor after 5-10 (or less) consults. Why? To be discussed. Most important will be a discussion of different programs, strategies to keep supporting your patient after 1, 5, 10, 20 years. New patients take 7 times more effort and work than a return patient, so the focus is to retain every patient until you are ready to retire. The presentation will introduce 5 phases of a patient’s health journey and discuss 4 different programs that you will individualize to your practice and style with an overview of what you must address with each phase and how the role of the doctor dramatically changes over the years of supporting the patient.
