Red Flags in your Concussion Care
If your provider has told you:
- to “just rest”
- stay in a dark room
- healing takes time, it will just get better on it’s own
- you have been diagnosed with a “mild”/”moderate” concussion
Then your provider is about 15 years behind the current research and best clinical practices.
A concussion is a functional neurometabolic injury. You cannot fully heal if you are in a state of chronic brain inflammation, or if you are missing key nutrients. Addressing the metabolic, cellular and hormonal health of your tissues speeds your recovery. I love supporting individuals in heal their brains naturally and collaborating with your other practitioners to create comprehensive care.
As a Naturopathic Doctor and former Primary Care Paramedic, Brigitta uniquely understands where gaps in the pathogenic model exist and what the advancements of complementary clinical concussion care can do for you.

“It doesn’t need to be one or the other - traditional medicine or naturopathic. It can be both. I approach each client as an individual with individual needs. My approach to (brain) health and wellness empowers each person with a holistic view of their (brain) health accompanied by an individual plan that makes sense for their life.” - Dr. Brigitta, ND
