Brain Based Therapy in Lake Forest, CA
Dr. Greg Olsen • Since 1994

Brain Based Therapy in Lake Forest, CA: Brain based therapy is an amazing and powerful healing technique used to restore our patients to their optimal state of health without the need for medications.

The brain controls and coordinates all function of the body. When the brain functions normally, the cerebellum sends messages to the right and left hemisphere of the brain which, in turn, send messages to the brain stem. This is referred to as the brain loop. When the brain loop is not functioning properly, the well-being, physical vitality, mental clarity and emotional stability of the patient are all negatively impacted.

How abnormal brain function occurs

Physical, chemical and emotional stress can adversely effect the brain loop. If one side of the cerebellum is not receiving enough nerve input, it fails to send sufficient nerve input to the frontal lobe. When this happens, it cannot send enough input to the lower brain-stem to keep the upper brain stem from over-firing.

When the upper brain stem (or mesencephalon) is not firing properly, symptoms such as ADD/ADHD, sciatica, fibromyalgia, insomnia and migraines occur.

How brain based therapy works to fix the brain

A thorough neurological examination by Dr. Olsen will reveal which aspects of the brain are not firing properly. Since one side of the body is controlled by the opposite side of the brain, most of our therapies are given to one side of the body to stimulate the opposite hemisphere of the brain.

A safe, gentle, hands-on, dynamic integration process is used to re-boot, reconnect and restore proper brain function. Traditional chiropractic instruments and/or adjustments are also used, but they are used in a very precise manner – to stimulate function in the effected part of the brain.

In addition, visual, auditory and olfactory stimulation, heat, eye movements, eye exercises and other modalities may be used to increase brain firing.

So what brought me to see Dr. Olsen is that I have had multiple issues due to exposure to Agent Orange some 40 years ago! I had just got out of the hospital and suffered with foot pain, back pain, and breathing issues.

Dr. Olsen was able to relieve those pains that I was unsuccessful after trying exercise and rehab programs.

He was able to get rid of the limp in my right leg that I have had for 6 years and back pain that o have had for years. My overall health is great with higher energy levels. I’m able to exercise more which, includes walking and light weights. I’ll be starting a yoga program soon.

Dr. Olsen didn’t push me to great lengths but he did push on a slower level. With all of my issues I didn’t expect Dr. Olsen to take on my many challenges but he did and I am grateful. Due to his efforts, I have already described my use of oxygen has been cut in half. I am working on getting off the oxygen completely after being on it for 10 years.

I would recommend this treatment to those who are looking for an alternative to standard drugs.
