The BART Foundation’s mission is to promote better outcomes for brain injury survivors by answering three questions – which alternative therapies are likely to work, where can they be found, and how can they be afforded? One of the ways we fulfill our mission is by carefully watching global research and clinical trial outcomes and sharing that information, in user-friendly language, with the TBI/ABI community.
We have recently identified four new books, published within the last few years, that may provide insight and information into some of the alternative therapies we advocate for. We are not endorsing these titles, but rather are suggesting them for individuals or families looking to educate themselves about options available for TBI/ABI treatment. These titles are widely available through online sellers and local libraries. We are not providing a direct link to any one seller but all the information you would need to search for the book online or request it at your library.
The Concussion Cure: 3 Proven Methods to Heal Your Brain
Concussions are a worldwide epidemic — 43 million cases are diagnosed each year. The good news is that there are effective treatments available today which reverse the symptoms of a concussion by correcting the underlying mechanisms of injury to the brain. The Concussion Cure is the first book that describes in detail how a concussion should be diagnosed and then treated. Both the diagnosis and treatments are based on the findings of two diagnostic tests which show functional abnormalities. In this comprehensive guide, Paul Henry Wand, MD explains how to treat recent concussions as well as those from years ago, and covers undiagnosed and untreated conditions which are often overlooked.
The Oxygen Cure: A Complete Guide to Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
The FDA currently recognizes hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) for 14 conditions, including decompression sickness, embolism, crush injury, bone infection, burns, wound healing, severe anemia, and several others. In The Oxygen Cure, hyperbaric expert William S. Max eld, M.D., will convince you that HBOT is a vastly underused modality that deserves to take its place among frontline medical treatments. As a holistic treatment, HBOT targets the underlying disease or condition, not just the symptoms. The Oxygen Cure reveals how hundreds of studies on HBOT conducted around the world prove it works at the cellular level to help or heal conditions such as TBI/ABI.
Oxygen Under Pressure: Using Hyperbaric Oxygen to Restore Health, Reduce Inflammation, Reverse Aging and Revolutionize Health Care
