Valuable conversations about INTEGRATIVE resources for brain injury!

This is such a valuable podcast for those with TBI. The support and advocacy for integrative approaches to healing brain injury is desperately needed! Thank you AMY ZELLMER for being so passionate about bringing change and help to those in need.

3 time loser

So in the span of 2 years, I have suffered 3 major concussions. First- head on collision via automobile accidentât 45 mph, 2nd- fall from my horse which also sustained T12 fracture, and 3rd, another fall from runaway horse. Needless to say, I won’t stop riding but, my confidence, health and mental repair has been nothing but a struggle. This has been the most difficult 2 years, mani my because there are no answers and progress is slow and also back steps.Listening to your podcasts have helped me to truly identify with others, and I’m grateful for this. I wish your show was longer, sometimes so much time is spent on introducing guests, and I want to know how to heal. Numerous neurologists and other dr appts leave me wanting.
