Seminar Series: “Putting out the Brain on Fire” DVD III of Weekend Seminars


Seminar Series: “Putting out the Brain on Fire”
DVDs of 4 Weekend Seminars

The brain is our most important and complex organ. When fanned by inflammation and excess excitatory activity, brain neurons become overstimulated to the point of exhaustion and even cell death, the so-called “Brain on Fire.” Dr. Schmitt has once again simplified complicated physiology for use in daily clinical practice.

In the “Putting Out The Brain On Fire” this seminar series Dr. Schmitt integrates structural, chemical, and mental procedures to optimize brain and brainstem functions, and put out the “Brain on Fire.”

This seminar series launches with two sessions to achieve an understanding of how to approach the immune system and inflammation through AK testing. These tools are necessary for applying the clinical principles of brain evaluation and treatment, covered in Sessions 3 & 4.

You will be amazed with the changes that can be made using your hands, nutritional tools, and your own brains.

  • For rapid implementation into your practice:
    • Ordered Procedures
    • Summary Notes included
  • Neurological evaluation synthesized with AK procedures

Some of the Common Neurological Symptoms & Conditions That Respond to the

• Depression

• Bipolar Disorder

• Pain & Recurrent Pain

• Mental fatigue / Brain fag

• Sleep Issues

• Learning Issues

• Named & Unnamed Autoimmune Disorders

Finding & Fixing Brain Chemistry: Inflammation & Neurotransmitters 

Chemical imbalances leading to degenerative or destructive activity in the central nervous system arise from two major sources: inflammation and altered neurotransmitter chemistry. You will learn how to identify each patient’s brain’s unique biochemical needs and how to make specific nutritional recommendations to obtain the most robust response.
