The Brain Kickstart Program

Recent research is confirming the role that the brain plays in achieving optimal health.
 “Brain-body medicine has changed the way we think about and ultimately diagnose disease.”   Eric Braverman, M.D.

What is The Brain Kickstart Program?

The Brain Kickstart Program is a novel combination of innovative techniques, modalities and support product(s) that will help your brain get unstuck from old brainwave states that interfere with self-regulation. These "stuck" patterns are often the result of injury and/or stress. The end result of the KickStart protocol is an energized, more optimally functioning brain that is now able to self-regulate.

Problems Addressed
More and more research is confirming the connection that exists between the brain and the body.
For example:

  • Poor eating habits and uncontrolled cravings can be linked to an imbalance of "feel good" neurotransmitters, possibly leading to obesity and an unhealthy diet lacking in key nutrients.
  • Insomnia and metabolic disorders are connected to brain voltage. Vitality, or the lack of it, is the outcome of the intensity of this voltage.
  • This low energy can undermine the best of intentions to exercise.
  • Handling the daily stress of life is determined by the brain’s rhythm.
  • Irritable Bowel, Extreme Fatigue, Elevated Anxiety Levels, Addictive Behaviors and Chronic Pain are among many other health issues that find their origins in dysfunctions of the Brain.

The bottom line to all of this is the brain generates and sends electric currents throughout your entire body, directs the internal systems and orchestrates overall health and wellbeing.
Answers that make sense
Our Brain Kickstart program incorporates evidence-based strategies and modalities to address the most common challenges to good brain health, which can result in greater body health. Subjective and Objective measures have demonstrated that our targeted non-invasive approach leads to substantial improvements within 3-5 affordable visits.

What we use
We start with a baseline assessment using a newly developed objective measure of brain performance, The Brain Gauge. We then utilize a number of evidence-based approaches, each of which support optimal Brain/Body function. Periodic retesting with The Brain Gauge will ensure that we are indeed making gains and help us determine which level of support and treatment are most appropriate. Those modalities and support products include a customized combination of the following:

1. The BioModulator: The Autonomic Nervous System is the automatic nervous system. It switches us from “fight, flight or freeze” mode called sympathetic to the “eat and sleep” mode called parasympathetic depending upon whether it senses danger. The problem for many of us in our modern world is that “perceived” danger is keeping us in “fight, flight or freeze” mode (Sympathetic ON) too much of the time, or worse yet we are stuck in it 24/7.

The BioModulator, an FDA approved device has been shown to reset the autonomic nervous system, getting us out of Sympathetic ON. This is a very important for overall health and wellbeing!

 2. Our Light and Sound Machine can restore flexibility between Relaxed and Energized States, utilizing Photic and Auditory stimulation. Both binaural beats and flickering light stimulation can synchronize the activity of the left and right hemispheres of your brain.Photic stimulation has been developed extensively by Harold Russell and his associates, using frequencies of 18 Hz and 10 Hz alternating for two minute periods, with demonstrable improvements in IQ scores and behavior (Russell and Carter, 1993).

  3. The use of Infratonic stimulation while stimulating with Light and Sound has greatly enhanced the ability to get the brain unstuck from stuck states and has been shown in research to increase the induction of Alpha rhythm in EEGs. Its gentle acoustical and magnetic stimulation has a signal that varies randomly in frequency, which breaks up residual traumatic stress in the tissue.

4. BioFlex Laser Light Therapy to ensure that adaquate resources reach the brain.

5. The Brain Cross Protocol administered with a second generation SCENAR device.
This device was specifically designed to use microresonances for one of the most important restorative structures of the body – the Hypothalamus, a “conductor” of our hormonal system. It is hypothalamus which mainly coordinates metabolism in our body. When we get older, the hypothalamus gets less sensitive to various signals of the body. That leads to serious metabolic imbalance and causes a number of disorders associated with aging.

6. High grade support products.

The Brain Kickstart program was developed and is under the direction of Patricia Salvitti, BS, DC and Anamaria Cobo Ed.D. Dr Salvitti has incorporated a Brain/Body integrative approach in her practice for over two decades. Dr Cobo's many years of life in academia have offered her an exposure to a great need for the support of healthy brain function in students at all levels of education.

Brain Kickstart sessions are now available at the Media Wellness Center. For more information contact Dr Cobo at 610-291-6627
