162 Brain Injury Insights – Prevention To Recovery – DeWitt

brain injury, TBI, CTE,

Advanced Insights For Brain Injury

Reject your sense of injury and the injury itself disappears.
– Marcus Aurelius

Dr. John DeWitt earned a full football scholarship at Vanderbilt University after his first semester. He went on to play twelve years of professional football and, after retiring, became a Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine. In the past decade, he has carefully studied the research regarding holistic improvements for the body – and, most specifically, brain injury.

Dr. DeWitt practices in Orange County at Bergman Family Chiropractic, specializing in concussion assessment and corrective chiropractic care. He is certified as a Golf Injury Specialist and an Advanced Sports Nutrition Specialist. He is a member of the FORE network in Irvine, CA and the Huntington Beach Chamber of Commerce.

From Awareness To Brain Injury Treatment Protocols

Dr. DeWitt’s years of athletic experiences led to an additional specific curiosity about increasing the protection for players from a brain injury while they still play the game. The nutritional weapons identified by Dr. DeWitt’s reviews herein not only help the effects of concussions when consumed in the proper amounts but also can lessen the symptoms if players have had an injury in the past.

Recently, his focus fixated even more precisely on TBI and contact sports, and he reports here on treatment strategies for brain injury. John brings more than nutrition to this interesting interview as we address a number of cofactors that prevent brain healing.

Brain Injury Insights

Throughout his studies on nutrition, he has been able to apply the results of research to write several helpful books. From nutritional adjustments (along with specific recipes) for improving vision to methods to improve golf-specific flexibility and strengthening in order to reduce injuries, Dr. DeWitt is committed to helping people live a full and healthy life.

His collection of bestselling books on Amazon includes:

  • Head Games: Concussions & CTE – Where Do We Go From Here?
  • You Don’t Need your Glasses or Contacts: Natural Ways to Correct Your Vision Without Drugs or Corrective Lenses;
  • 20 Surprising Foods for Clearer Vision, and;
  • Stretch for Golf in 5 Minutes or Less (With 100 Bonus Pages).
  • Scholarship or Bust: A Step-by-Step Guide to Getting an Athletic Scholarship to the College of Your Dreams;
  • Chiropractic Care for Clearer Vision: Backed by Actual Case Studies, and;
  • Goals: Imperfect Action Can Change Your Life: Always Take Action.

  • 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!

  • Flipping Junkie Review
    December 23, 2016 by Danny Johnson -Flipping Junkie from United States

    Awesome podcast! I really loved the bipolar episode. Wonderful insight into these issues. Keep up the good work!

  • “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!

  • I may be a geek...
