concussion, suicide, traumatic brain injury, post concussion syndrome

Concussion Does Link To Suicide

Let’s start looking at the answers already documented in neuroscience research completed on concussion and suicide in the last 25 years.
– Joanny Liu

The state of concussion “treatments” in conventional sports medicine is non-existent. The NFL paid a group of the brightest minds in neuroscience $100 million to come up with answers. Last summer they announced the answer: exercise. – Are you kidding?
– Joanny Liu

Concussion Denial Contributes to Treatment Failure and Suicide

This interview with Dr. Liu documents the deep value of more comprehensive diagnostic and treatment strategies for TBITraumatic Brain Injury,  and PCSPost Concussion Syndrome – with a compelling drive from her own personal experience. Joanny is fresh, engaging, and passionate about essential improvements that arise from her own insights and transformational experience with her own son’s serious injury.

Reality does change your perspective.

Ed Note:

Dr. Liu’s active consultation practice includes  a deeper look at how each individual’s personal life experiences and understandings  can improve Post Concussive Syndrome recovery prognosis.

Her Message In A Sentence:

TBI and PCS recovery takes determined action and a particular program that addresses the complexity of biologic and spiritual foundations for effective life changes.

Dr. Liu’s Connections


Dr. Liu’s books and texts spell out specific, different, more structured and specific brain interventions that can prove more helpful. Her variety of personal and clinical experiences takes us down interesting, potentially controversial paths, but she speaks with the authority of truly having ‘been there.’

Book Review for Heal Your Concussion – Dr. Joanny Liu

Brain injury and post concussive syndromes remain one of the most challenging, nuanced, and indeed mysterious diagnostic and treatment problems in mind science today. Because of the subtlety of cognitive presentations, and the clinical challenges associated with recognizing those often-vague thinking symptoms, brain injury, more often than not, remains not only overlooked, but also outright denied.

It takes only a brief review of extant mind diagnostic affairs to recognize glaring inadequacies in far more commonplace and obvious cognitive disarrays such as ADD. It’s indeed paradoxical, and yet undeniably true: the current standard of care does not adequately think about thinking on many levels. Set adrift with reductionistic labels for simplistic behavioral observations, few caretakers wish to dive into or defend the necessity for, actually addressing the underlying complexity of brain injury. Both diagnosis and consequent treatment remain lost in pharmacologic guesswork while concern for the essential foundation of molecular and cellular integrity vanishes like seeds in the wind.

The needs at this moment for those suffering from brain injury or post concussive syndromes include a complexity of biomedical balances and internal and external practices that don’t exist in the current box of limited perceptions and outdated interventions.

In this context, I strongly recommend that you add Dr. Liu’s interesting observations and strategies to your diagnostic and treatment armamentarium. Yes, her book Heal Your Concussion is out of the box, as you would hope it is.

Complexity requires careful, complexity thinking to turn the tide. Dr. Liu translates mind and brain complexity into compelling, utilitarian applications that will add informed structure to your recovery process at any level.

The Next CoreBrain Journal Episode

013: Dr. Craig Wiener is a psychologist, Asst. Professor at University of Massachusetts Medical School, author of three books on ADHD including his most recent on Parenting ADHD children. Wiener documents five main ways parents can work with the kids to strengthen self-reliance and cooperation. His theme is quite similar to the one you’ll regularly see here at CBJ: ineffective labels reduce affirmative action and diminish intervention strategies to only medications – leaving growth opportunities within the family interaction process overlooked, and, at times, disparaged.

  • Interesting, Important and helpful
    April 28, 2018 by J.M.I from Sweden

    I am listening in from Sweden, and I learn so much from Dr Parker and his interesting guests. Sadly, information like this is hard to find amongst practitioners here, and underlying factors to symptoms are of little interest. I am thankful to Dr Parker dedicating time in spreading word about helping people with psycological dysfunctions from a non conventional angle. Thank you!

  • Core Brain Journal--Neuropsychology
    May 25, 2017 by Dr Terry James Gingras from United States

    Just finished session 118 with neuropsychologist, Dr. Braun. Excellent content presented in a relaxed style. I'm a neuropsychoogist with a specialization In ADHD so I appreciate both Dr. Parker's and Dr. Braun's efforts demystifying the practice of neuropsychology.

  • Exceptional interviews !!
    May 16, 2017 by MCVGRL from United States

    Core Brain Journal, with Dr. Charles Parker is a must listen for a wide audience. If you are either the individual, suffering from complex personal medical/ psychological issues; or a family member, friend... please tune in often.

  • Podcast 107 (Brain Health) - Very informative!
    April 13, 2017 by ad1978mke from United States

    I especially liked this Podcast because it provided a wealth of valuable brain health research and tips in an approachable, easy-to-listen-to format. The rapport between the Guest Speaker (Dr. Braun) and Host (Dr. Parker) was evident, and I hope to hear another Podcast with this Guest Speaker!

  • Top quality information
    February 5, 2017 by MD Ireland from Ireland

    As a functional medicine doc I found this iterview stimulating, inspiring and it is full of clinically useful information

  • Fascinating
    February 1, 2017 by jinki1 from United States

    If you love science and psychology, then this is for you. The brain is such a mysterious machine, and listening to experts discuss how it works is fascinating. This seems like a pick-and-choose type podcast: I'll skip the shows focusing on estrogen and alzeimer's and go for creativity, anxiety, music, and others. But what I've listened to so far is great.

  • My Brain Thanks You!
    January 13, 2017 by B. Keenan Johnston from United States

    Thanks for shedding some much needed light on issues of the brain. I recently became interested in the subject when I was listening to NPR do a segment on neuroplasticity. I could never remember the name of the author, but it helped me find this great podcast!

  • “How I Found Myself” Dean Roberts
    December 2, 2016 by Don Hutcheson from United States

    I just had the pleasure of listening to Dr. Charles Parker’s latest interview with Mr. Dean Roberts on the topic: “How I Found Myself.” The thesis of this remarkable podcast is that the difference between treatment success and failure for conditions such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, PTSD and others is often the result of omitting crucial brain, biomedical, and functional neuroscience information and insights. Well done and much-needed. Wish you continuing success!
