The brain is undeniably the most powerful organ in the human body and it comes with many mysteries and complexities that even today’s best medical specialists cannot fully explain. Fully understanding the brain’s ability to cope with and heal from various conditions takes time and a lot of patience.

“Our brain defines who we are and what our potential is. Without our brain, we lose who we are. There’s nothing worse than losing that part of us and feeling hopeless. I’ve seen far too many people lose their jobs, relationships, and savings due to brain issues that were never treated appropriately,” Dr. Zimmerman explained. “Also, my wife suffered from post-concussion syndrome for 17 years that was never diagnosed, and many of the symptoms were blamed on teenage hormones. No one should have to go through this and feel the need to accept a new normal. We shouldn’t adapt to our symptoms, but learn to beat them with the right help.”
