THE CANARY’S SONG: A Primer on Neuroinflammation and Neurodegeneration Early Biomarkers of a Brain on Fire
with Tom O’Bryan, DC, CCN, DACBN
This Presentation will address both the latest cutting-edge laboratory testing to identify the mechanisms of BBB permeability, the most common triggers of a ‘Brain on Fire’, and the over 40 biomarkers (gauges on the dashboard) of a brain on fire.
Initial brain inflammation, with improvements clearly documented on follow up tests keeps the patient engaged, empowered, and reinforces they are on the right path to reverse the direction of brain deterioration that eventually manifests as dementia.
