BRAIN HEALTH: NEUROSCIENCE + CHINESE MEDICINE OCT 19-20, 2019 @ PARAMOUNT HEALTH DIRECTIONS
Dr. Stamatoiu, MD and Ashley Crutchfield LAc bridge ancient Chinese medicine and modern neuroscience research to explore how to take care of our brains in a modern world.
Recall from the Ling Shu “The Brain is the Sea of Marrow”… what does this mean? Learn how the Chinese view of Brain and Marrow are connected through neuroscience research. We will review the Western understanding of the Brain including the left and right hemispheres. We will try to understand the vast capacities of our neurons through thought experiments. Learn how our brains evolved to be so large. We will cover the importance of the Gut-Brain connection and Brain immunity. We will share very practical information with you about how to take care of your brain based on modern neuroscience research. We will dip into the elegance of neurogenesis and neuroplasticity. We will explain what happens when a healthy neural pathway goes awry causing anxiety and depression. Finally we will share the importance of social connectedness, acceptance and forgiveness in Brain health. Join us for all things ‘Brain’!
