Event description

Description

Dr. Tom O'Bryan presents:

B4: CLOSING THE GATES TO BRAIN DETERIORATION

The mechanism fueling practically all degenerative disease is inflammation. At the cellular level, there is always a fire. The question is:

• Is it gasoline or kerosene?
• Is it a kidney cell or a brain cell'?

When looking at the triggers of brain dysfunction, and what is it that is 'fueling the fire' in the brain, as far as science has been able to determine, the vast majority of inflammation is caused by an immune response to invaders (antigens) from the blood and lymphatics getting into the brain. Those invaders get through the
gates into the brain through a Breach of the Blood Brain Barrier (B4).

Most of us have heard of 'Leaky Gut'. This presentation will address the latest research on the 'Leaky Brain' and B4. Where does it come from? And what do to do to fix it? This information is of critical value with brain fog, Depression, Anxiety, Learning Difficulties, Attention Deficit, Autism, Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson's Disease, seizures, and many more. The science is ripe with information about B4 and its role as the 'Gateway' in the
development of brain dysfunction.

Attendees will leave with an understanding of:
• What is B4
• How do I test for it, and most importantly
• How do I fix it

Why Attend a Meetup?
One of the biggest frustrations we hear from practitioners who practice the type of medicine that you do, is that you feel isolated from the rest of their medical community who don’t “get” the true value of what you offer. The purpose of the Functional Forum local meetup groups is to help you to develop a community of practitioners in your area who “get it”, to build your referral network, add value to your practice, your community, and the movement at large.

Anyone can tune into our Functional Forum event via livestream. What really excites us is when our events create dialogue between practitioners that are sharing best practices, asking tough questions, and helping each other to create the greatest impact with their patients and communities. It gives you the opportunity to not only network but also, keep your finger on the pulse of what’s happening in your own healthcare community.
