Neurologic & Neurophyschiatric Evaluation of Concussion & Mycotoxin Brain Injuries and the Role of Acetyl-Glutathione, Resveratrol and Nitric Oxide Supplementation.
LD Empting, MD
- Overview of single and multiple concussions and clinical and neuropathic correlates
- Overview of mold/mycotoxin brain effects and clinical syndromes
- Use of Acetyl-Glutathione, Resveratrol and Nitric Oxide Supplements in the treatment of concussions and mold/mycotoxin exposure toxicity
Synopsis: We look at concussions within the context of MVA/Personal Injury, Workers’ Compensation and sprts (including NFL players). This includes discussion of the brain injury phenomenology, the neuropathophsiology and the clinical neurologic and neuropsychiatric features. A similar overview will be reviewed for mold and mycotoxin exposure/sensitivity and cliniconeuropathophysiologic details. Clinical syndromal features defined in “classical” Psychiatry and Neurology will be discussed as well as looking at the Integrative Medicine interfaces. Diagnostic cas examples from Dr. Empting’s practice will be shown with therapeutic strategies discussed. Treatment interventions will be laid out and will include current general medical standards of care and then also go through the particular utility of supplement treatment including Acetyl-Glutathione, Resveratrol and Nitric Oxide generators. Some time will also be taken to review Quantitative EEG Neurobiofeedback and Hyperbaric Oxygen treatments.
