The brain is the body's master-controller, making neuroscience a fascinating area of healthcare.
Dr Brandon Brock has a broad scope of expertise borne of his formal training in chiropractic and nursing, which has given rise to his love for endocrinology, immunology, neurology, pharmacology and the art of physical examination and diagnosis.
Drawing on his own experience of having sustained a head injury, Dr Brock developed a keen interest in blending neurology and functional medicine. This led to him being a sought after lecturer in the field of functional neurology including his forthcoming appointment as a key note speaker at the Mindd International Forum in May 2017.
In this podcast, practitioners can get a taste for what to expect out of Dr Brock's masterclasses at Mindd where he will cover how to assess and treat a range of brain-immuno-gut conditions including; ASD, ADHD, OCD, anorexia, LD, SPD, CFS, PANDAS, tic-borne Illness and more.
