Sports Recovery, Treatment for Multiple TBIs
I’m two or three months past my last treatment, and I can honestly say my brain is in a better place than it was before. The emotional highs and lows I was living with have been stabilized. My cognition took off during that period and it hasn’t slowed down since.” – Nick Hardwick (Retired NFL Center, Chargers)
I’m back! My TBI turned me into someone I barely recognized. I was depressed, mean, and short-tempered. I pushed through life filled with frustration and a deep sense of sadness that this was it. I just had to keep pushing through life with an overwhelming tiredness. I’m so glad I was wrong. I think my direct reports and family are even more thankful. This treatment changed everything, and I am forever thankful.” – 41-year old male with TBI, Executive, Nov 2017
I was offered the opportunity to attend the BTC to help with the effects of the TBI’s I had endured over the 21 yrs of Military Service. I am absolutely glad I did so. I felt the positive effects of the treatment in the first 3 days. I had irritability issues, although California Traffic will do that to you, and sleeping issues among other things. I started sleeping through the night on day 3. And not just sleeping but sleeping hard and dreaming. So I know I was in R.E.M sleep. It has helped me focus, feel more energetic, less irritable, more caring to others and helped with joint pain and tinnitus. The staff is also very amazing and extremely professional. I highly recommend the BTC. Trust the process and you’ll have the same results as I did.” – Veteran
Tait Fletcher, Actor and Stunt Performer, Discusses the Difference that MeRT Made in His Life After He Suffered Multiple Concussions:
I’d just always ‘outworked’ it. After the last concussion, that wasn’t an option, even though I had previously walked off a dozen concussions. It’s vital to know that not all TBIs result in massive concussions, but they all add to the erosion of the mind and self, if untreated.
For now, I want to ring the bell for Spencer and Fred and the whole crew at Brain Treatment Center Newport Beach. Through EEG, MeRT, and some subtle sleep and attention shifts, I’ve had a radical, nourishing, strengthening, and dare I say, “healing,” that has brought me to see life through a filter I’ve never known was available.
Giving life a chance is sometimes just staying in “the Try.” If you are damaged, confused, and at the end, know that you have allies that you’ve never met before.” – Tait Fletcher
Treatment for Depression
I felt like I was alone even though I was surrounded by love and care. It was just a cloud that would linger over my life every now and again. BTC helped me better understand what was going on in my head and after a month of treatment I was grateful to be depression free and medication free for the first time in my life.” – BTC Patient
For anyone suffering from depression, anxiety, and other symptoms, I highly recommend trying MeRT at the Brain Treatment Center. My adult son who has suffered from both problems his entire life, and has been on medication, realized a positive change after the first visit. We saw dramatic improvement after each visit. This technology is truly a magic bullet for the right candidate. The staff is professional and friendly. The facilities are equally professional. I would highly recommend The BTC to anyone that can afford the treatments.” – Harold H.
Amazing experience, changed my life!” – Alex B.
Treatment for Addiction:
Oh my GOD! These people are so AWESOME! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for your help with TMS/MeRT for my PTSD symptoms! Refiring those frontal lobe neurons had me reading 10 novels in 6 months! I’ve NEVER read that many in ALL my prior life! The confusion, distraction and memory issue was greatly reduced. The treatment does wonders. And whatever you did last time had an unexpected, incredibly wonderful effect. Besides helping with my sciatic, shoulder and leg pains, I STOPPED TAKING OXYCODONE A WEEK AFTER, COLD TURKEY, unexpectedly AND WITH ZERO 000 WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS! IT WAS LIKE I’D NEVER TAKEN THEM but the truth is that I did for at least a decade prior. It was Vicodin for the decade prior to that. Now, while I do have some pains, I take NO OPIODS! I manage with ibuprofen, and Tylenol. Everyone there are so incredibly kind it almost kills me. This is worth every penny. THANK YOU Brain Treatment Center! You guys n gals ROCK!!” – Ernie Poulin
Treatment for Severe Sleep Conditions:
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia — I’ve had these for over 20 years with severe cognitive deficits and pain that forced me into retirement at age 45. The clinic determined my problem at this point is extremely disordered sleep, which I had thought of as another symptom rather than a cause. After 7 weeks of treatment last August and September, my sleep began to improve. The fibro pain is completely gone, my memory is better and I’m getting my life back. Of course, I have to do my part to continue to go in the right direction, and yes, it costs money. BUT if this had been available 20 years ago, it still would have been much less costly than 20 years of lost wages and having to drop out of so much of life. Anyone who is struggling with CFS and Fibro should SERIOUSLY consider at least a consultation. I gave up hope a long time ago of ever getting better. I was wrong and the next 20 years are looking so much better than the last. Make the call. Spend the money. You are worth every penny.” – CJS
My anxiety during the day has improved, now being awake I have moments of tremendous peace of mind. At night, I’m sleeping in straight and really waking up rested. I recommend you visit them and start with * Electroencephalogram * and from there they will explain the current state of their brain, great scientific treatment! Many thanks to ALL the team at BTC.” – MdC
It was absolutely terrifying to not know what was wrong with me or how to fix the problem. BTC not only identified the deteriorated state of my brainwave activity, they restored its function… I consider the healing I experienced at BTC to be nothing short of a miracle.” – US Army Veteran
After returning from Iraq, Sgt. Jon Warren struggled with PTSD and sought various forms of treatment to improve his mental health to no avail. Then he found the Brain Treatment Center.
A guy who was making a film who was filming documentaries got a hold of me after reading that article and said you need to come check out what’s happening at the Brain Treatment Center. They’ve been doing some amazing things with autistic children and several of them have gone back to being neuro-typical. You might want to come see what they are doing with PTSD. They just started taking veterans in and helping them with their symptoms.
When I came in there, I was a mess. I was terrified of not getting better, of trying yet another very hopeful procedure that was going to let me down. So I sat down and had my EEG and I remember waiting for the doctor to interpret it and thinking what if this thing comes back normal, then what, and where do I go from here. That was scary. But as soon as he pulled it up, he said, “Woah, it looks like your frontal cortex is sleeping right now,” and he started describing to me a lot of my symptoms that they could tell, just by the loss of synchronicity that was in my brain, and the neurons that weren’t working in my favor, that they could tell that I was impulsive, that I would have a substance abuse issue, that I wasn’t sleeping, that I was depressed, that it was difficult for me to concentrate, and the list goes on. But they were just very accurate in describing situations that would play out in my life.
What they were going to use was magnetic stimulation to basically tune my brain back up, to get my frequencies right in my head and to allow my brain to communicate with itself, and all I had to do was to get some sunlight in the morning and I get to bed at night. I slept great the very first night, I slept for about 10 hours. I was really excited about that and I didn’t notice that much for about two weeks. I sat down to have a drink with a buddy and I we usually went to drink a handle of rum together. After the first cocktail, he went to pour another one and I just told him I’m okay right now, which was shocking even to me, because that wasn’t my norm. I was usually very anxious and needed to calm down somehow. But in this particular instance, I felt really good. I wanted to test that, that relief of anxiety and that peace that I felt because I was sitting across from my best friend and thought, maybe this was a fluke.
But the next day I went to the Brain Treatment Center and instead of leaving after my 30-minute treatment, I decided to stick around for another 30 minutes, and in doing so, I realized that I was able to be in connection with people. I sat down and I was calm and present and centered for the first time. I was actually able to hear people speaking and my mind wasn’t racing. I was able to keep track of the conversation that was happening and give feedback and contribute to the conversation. I actually enjoyed it, I felt connected and it was very addicting to me and I wanted more of that feeling. So I just started hanging around more and more, especially with the veterans. I felt very close and known with them and when I was surrounded with them, and it was freeing. I just felt like I have got to come out more and more of my shell and stop isolating and I was getting back to who I was before, which was an outgoing social, friendly, life-of-the-party kind of guy.” See a video of Jon’s talk here.
This place is amazing. The people are wonderful. As a mother of a 31 year old autistic son, this place has given me hope. My son is doing much better and we are excited about our future. Seeing changes in him that I only dreamed of. The staff is incredible. Thank you so much!” – Justin
I have a (6) year old son who has autism and the Brain Treatment Center has helped him tremendously.
He has improved specifically in his auditory processing and speech along with a reduction in his toe walking. He attends a special school and receives Speech, OT, PT and ABA therapies. ALL his teachers including the speech therapist have said he has improved dramatically during the (4) weeks of therapy he had while attending the Brain Treatment Center in Newport Beach, CA. We have worked with our son since he was diagnosed at (16) months old, he has received Early Intervention and then attended special schooling receiving one on one attention using ABA and OT, Pt and speech. He improved in attention and following directions and social interactions and pretend play etc. but his toe walking and speech were still a problem with major delays in speech and severe toe walking no matter what we tried.
I strongly believe that our son was ready for the MRT treatment because he was prepared by having his body chemically balanced and healthy. Then after applying the treatment he made huge gains in his ability to communicate and huge reduction in toe walking. We feel he would benefit even more with additional treatments and we’re looking to arrange for them now.” – Frank P.
Our little son has great results. Everytime time we did MeRT we had new improvements on his attentional deficit. In his case at first was affected his brain connection with the speaking motor (TEL) as first local diagnosis. We did 4 sessions of 5/6 weeks and every time we notice differences, every MeRT enabled my son to get more of his outside world. At his 4.5yrs he didn’t speak anything, now with 5.5yrs he is speaking and counting till 30. We hope we can continue with more sessions in a near future because his attentional deficit is much better but noticeable. Thanks BTC Irvine.” – APK
This is by far the best thing we’ve done for our son we have been here two weeks and he loves it the staff is amazing so patient with my son he has been so good after his first day it was a turn around his anxiety levels have dropped now he is confident and open to change thank you brain treatment center I recommend it perfect to all the families that have kids with autism worth every penny.” – Adriana
My son had vaccine poisoning and got brain damage due to neurotoxicity. He became very violent, nonverbal, and had severe autistic behaviors, he was so violent that he gave 4 stitches on my lip and nerve damage on my left eye because of his violent behaviors. I couldn’t be alone with my son and couldn’t hug or touch him, it broke my heart. My husband and I brought my son to California from Hawaii to go to the Brain Treatment Center. Within one week of the treatment my son was more calm and I got to hug him for the first time in 2 yrs. My son did 6 weeks of treatment and he received another 4 weeks of treatment. My son is much calmer and started playing ping, shooting basketball, kicking the soccer ball, exercising, started volunteering at different programs, catching the city bus with his para workers and started talking!!! I love BTC because they gave me back my son. – MH
We had exhausted every available treatment hoping to help our daughter. Nothing worked — then we found Brain Treatment Center. MeRT changed everything for us.” – BTC Patient
Testimony from Miriam, Mother of a Child with Autism
“We have a beautiful daughter, Raquel and she was diagnosed with severe autism at the young age of 1 ½ years. Rachel did not follow directions, she did not look into my eyes, she did not want to be touched, she did not speak, she did not listen or respond to her name, she did not distinguish me as her mother, and I could clearly feel she was very anxious all the time.
Desperate, and with the intention of doing my best to guarantee a better quality of life for my daughter, for 4 years I investigated and took all available routes to try to help her overcome her condition. I took her to different types of therapy (phonoaudiology, occupational, behavioral, and sensory integration), in addition to a diet regime free of casein and gluten. All these efforts were important and helped my daughter have small signs of improvement, but Raquel was far from making any significant progress – doctors still gave her the same severe diagnosis.
It was not until the fourth year of this endless quest that we finally came up with something that would change our lives, and the life of our daughter forever. When it seemed that all alternatives were exhausted, Dr. Jeff Bradstreet told me about a new therapy in Newport Beach, California, called MeRT, which consisted of repetitive brain stimulation through magnetic waves. There was already strong empirical evidence that they help to regulate brain functioning quickly, safely, effectively and permanently.
Dr. Bradstreet explained that there were 20% of people who, for some unknown reason, did not respond to treatment, but an 80% chance of improvement was definitely an opportunity that I was not willing to let go, especially if it had to do with the well-being of my girl.
I traveled to California and they explained what the treatment consisted of. Rachel was going to do an EEG (Electroencephalogram) to determine exactly what was happening in her brain so that they could design a treatment tailored to her needs.
The study confirmed that the front of her brain did not work properly so Rachel did not process the information like the other children. With the clearest panorama, and high optimism, I agreed to start treatment immediately. I could not wait to start.
On the first day of therapy I thought my daughter wouldn’t cooperate. To my surprise she seemed to enjoy the procedure. Obviously at the end of the day I saw no changes in her behavior, but I did not expect to see results so fast. The story takes a really unexpected turn for all of us at the end of the second day of therapy.
We went back to the house of some relatives, where we were spending the night, and Raquel approached me, with a glass between her little hands asking me to give her some “Juz”. There are no words that can express the emotions that I felt at that moment. All the people who know me ask me if I shed tears of joy in that moment. It was the first time I could say that I had heard the voice of my 4 year old daughter. Incredibly this was not all. A few minutes later my daughter went out to the garden of the house, approached a lemon tree, took one and brought it to her face to smell it. For a little girl who practically lived in the corner of the room, interacting with her shadow, this was a revelation, to the point that a few moments later, when her sister took the lemon from her hands, Raquel demanded loudly “My, Lemon?” Only two days of therapy had passed and we suddenly had what seemed, for the first time in her short life, a normal child.
At the end of the second week of treatment, we arrived at the Clinic excited and very eager to share with the medical staff the great advances that we had seen after the second therapy. The Director of Center approached me and asked me to accompany him to the game room where Raquel was. I will never forget that moment. He said, “Look at your daughter.” Raquel was there, sitting by a window. She was pointing to the passing cars and asking out loud: “Blue Car?”, “Green Car?”, also an airplane “Blue Plane with White?”
Most incredible of all was that not only had she improved her ability to communicate, but her emotional projection also took a 180-degree turn. My daughter now asked me to pick her up and carry her in my arms. She hugged me for the first time voluntarily and repeatedly for more than 15 minutes. Aside from improving in language, she also improved her emotional connection. They were the most beautiful 15 minutes of my life. My daughter recognized me and expressed it openly and freely for the first time.
Since that day she did not let me go, everything she wanted to do, was with me. When I realized these great changes I began to carry out other activities with my daughter. What I can not forget to mention is that Raquel’s anxiety did not allow us to take her anywhere. When we went to a mall, the screams were so loud that a man even asked if she needed an ambulance. To take her to the U.S. was horrible too, because customs officers could not understand how this girl could not calm down with her mother. After 3 weeks of therapy Raquel even tolerated going to Disney. That frightful part of our lives was over. Now I was free to walk with my daughter and she was for the first time able to enjoy the rides. I meditated about why God sent this miracle to me. I came to the conclusion that if Raquel did so well, it had to be for something greater than us. At the end of the Treatment and seeing the progress, I decided to meet with the key people of the company and asked them to send a MeRT machine to Panama. When I got to the office I sat down with them and explained that I would not be able to live without the machine that brought me so many miracles. It took a year, but we finally managed to open the doors of Brain Treatment Center in Panama, and provide thousands of people with a treatment that could be the change they sought in their lives, closer, more accessible and comfortable. – Miriam, Raquel’s Mother *
