Feed A Brain

How To Feed a Brain: Nutrition for Optimal Brain Function and Repair:

Our nutrition is so important for the function of our brains… our cognition, memory, balance, vision, immunity and everything else. Did you know that over a quarter of the calories in the food we eat is consumed by our brain? Cavin has put together a powerful presentation with plenty of resources to help anyone improve their brain function. In this presentation, you will learn how nutrition affects your unique physiology, how those reactions affect the brain, and how you can eat to support brain function. You will also get downloads to ready to print charts, lists, and user-friendly nutritional guides to take to the grocery store or put on the fridge so that you can easily apply what you learn to optimally feed your’s and your loved one’s brains, bodies, and souls.

About Cavin Balaster:

Since his severe traumatic brain injury in 2011, Cavin has been studying neuro-rehabilitation like his life depended on it… because it did. After waking from his second coma over several weeks, Cavin found himself unable to eat, walk, or talk for months. Some of the doctors began to tell his family to “get used to their ‘new normal.” He has never been interested in that disempowering narrative. In learning and implementing principles of neurology, physiology, nutrition, and medical law, he has had a very successful recovery. He has since created a podcast, two websites, and published his first book, How To Feed a Brain: Nutrition for Optimal Brain Function and Repair. Cavin is now partnering with survivors and loved ones so that they have the best opportunity to recover. Using his experience, knowledge, and connections to support others with neurological injuries, he is influencing the standard model of neurorehabilitation, like he has set out to do since his very first blog entry. You can learn more about Cavin at, the Adventures in Brain Injury Podcast and…
