Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is now recognized as a causative factor for hormonal deficiencies associated
with personality changes. Psychological, physiological, and physical manifestations like; depression, anxiety, mood swings,
bouts of anger, memory loss, inability to concentrate, learning disabilities, sleep deprivation, increased risk for heart
attacks, strokes, high blood pressure, diabetes, loss of libido, menstrual irregularities, pre-mature menopause, obesity,
loss of lean body mass, muscular weakness, and a number of other medical conditions can arise subsequent to head trauma.
medications (antidepressants, anti-anxiety, anti-seizure, anti-psychotic, and narcotics) do nothing to address the
underlying causes that create the symptoms associated with TBI (Post-Concussion Syndrome) because they do not replenish the
missing hormones. Many individuals under conventional treatment become further dysfunctional from the over-load of medications
used for treating the superficial complaints.
Take some time and review the medical articles that are being published addressing
and acknowledging the association between TBI and Hormonal Dysfunction. Dr. Mark L. Gordon was the first to
provide this relationship on national television after 8 years of sharing the information that already existed. Dr. Gordon
is presently lecturing to other physicians both nationally and internationally on Interventional Endocrinology and
in May 2015, launched a lecture series based upon his recent book entitled:
"TBI - A Clinical Approach
to Diagnosis and Treatment"
8 years of clinical trials based upon hundreds of articles we now have a Perfect Protocol:
My position on PTSD
versus TBI is very clear; if there was no physical component to your acute stressor situation that precipitated the condition referred
to as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, then it is most likely PTSD. On the other hand, if you had any
physical component, whether it involved the head directly or indirectly, then it is a potential case of Traumatic
Brain Injury. It is my belief, based upon interpretation of 100's of articles suggesting that it is
the interruption of both neurosteroids ( hormones produced in the brain that regulate who we are and how we function)
and neuroactive steroids ( produced in the peripheral glands like testes, ovaries, adrenals and so forth) that cause
the change in our neuro-receptors that regulate mood and intellectual states. It has been my 11 years of experience
in treating mild and moderate TBI cases that the replenishment of neuroactive and neurosteroids to optimal levels has
offered the greatest impact and resolve in each patients' condition. MLG 07-04-2015
