Brain Health

WELCOME

Agora Brain Health Centres provide biochemical regeneration and restoration through holistic methods and approaches.

 

Agora is dedicated to helping people who are having issues with brain function, including people living with addictions, ADD/ADHD, PTSD, TBI, and/or Parkinson's. We have developed strategies and techniques to improve these issues so that clients can have the freedom to be all that they can be.

 

Cognitive impairment is affecting more and more people in our communities and conventional medicine can only offer a few standard prescription drugs to help. Sadly, these medications are widely acknowledged to be mostly ineffective, and may have serious side effects.

 

Although cognitive impairment sometimes leads to serious brain conditions, please do not resign yourself to that fate - there are so many things that can now be done to repair, regenerate and reverse these and any other cognitive issues.

Dr. Mark Hyman, MD, Medical Director at Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Functional Medicine, states the following:

 

Sometimes, a "broken brain" is not obvious and does not show up in the form of dementia, ADD, or depression. Sometimes, a less than optimally functioning brain can show up in small ways.”

 

  • Do you feel frustrated because you misplace objects or forget names?

  • Do you suffer from brain fog?

  • Do you find it hard to focus on tasks?

  • Do you feel your energy diminishing as the days go on?

  • Are you tired, unfocused, inattentive, and feel that your memory is failing so you can’t properly perform your tasks at work or at home?

  • Do you see your relationships breaking down because you are mentally and emotionally absent or numb?

 

If any of these things are happening to you, you may wish to explore our cognitive repair programs and find the appropriate one to address your concerns. There are amazing supplements available now to target specific issues, plus other initiatives to improve and indeed reverse your condition.

 

Agora's programs repair, regenerate and re-pattern the neuroreceptors of the brain, integrating mental, emotional, physical, and personal components throughout the course of treatment.

 

The cognitive brain health programs provided by Agora are customized to meet the level of biochemical restoration needed by each client.

Addiction Recovery and Healing

Agora For Life:
Recover From Alcohol or
Drug Dependency

Agora For Life can be administered in 15 or 20 days (in Vancouver, Canada) and uses natural treatments to support a gentle detox, repair and re-patterning of your brain and body, to free yourself.

The Agora For Life programs include:

10 or *15 days of NRR IV


Neuroreceptor Repair and Regeneration NRR consists of an intravenous solution of amino acids (the building blocks that make up all the proteins in our bodies) which rebuilds the damaged areas of the brain. You will receive the drip for four hours during the first three days, and two hours per day thereafter. (Each individual is different, so this may be modified at any time.) This combination of brain nutrients, vitamins, minerals and amino acids helps eliminate cravings and repairs the brain. It is gentle, long-lasting, and repatterns the brain to help reduce distressing emotions.




5 days of NAD IV and NAD suppositories


NAD stands for 'nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide', which is the chemical term for a molecule that reacts with oxygen in the mitochondria in every cell of your body in order to create energy so you can move, breathe, pump blood, digest food, think, and generally, live your life. Lack of this essential cellular fuel is now recognized as a key feature of chronic fatigue, apathy, depression, anxiety, alcohol and drug addiction, weak immune system (infections and cancer), muscle pain and weakness, headaches, memory disturbance, sleep problems, focus and concentration defects and other chronic diseases. NAD deficiency may be an unrecognized epidemic of cellular disease. How do you treat NAD deficiency? First of all NAD is in many of the foods that we eat, but it is mostly lost in cooking and what little remains is broken down by the acid in our stomachs. For patients with severe NAD deficiencies, such as alcoholics or drug addicts, the intravenous form has been shown to be highly effective, usually eliminating the physical craving within three or four days and then producing a clarity of thinking with continued daily IV therapy. The cognitive and emotional improvement is likely due to increased production of neurotransmitters such as serotonin, noradrenalin and dopamine. Numerous studies have shown that IV NAD is highly beneficial for drug addicted patients, including those dependent upon benzodiazepine medications like Valium, Librium, Clonazapem, and Klonopin. NAD therapy offers a foundational treatment that promotes health throughout the body. Suppositories are solid dosage forms that are typically inserted into the rectum. As soon as you insert, it goes through the blood brain barrier for instant absorption, giving maximum bio-availability to the body and brain. NAD suppositories work in conjunction with the NAD IV and gives a higher dose of NAD, delivered in a gentler method than increasing the dosage of the IV. Agora suppositories are safe, made of natural products, and offer a highly effective method to support breaking free of alcohol and drug dependency.




12 or *15 sessions of Energy Psychology/Counselling including Aftercare


The Agora For Life Energy Psychology sessions is the synthesis of several modalities which clears repressed trauma and re-establishes emotional, physical, and spiritual equilibrium. These sessions are scheduled every second or third day, and three weeks of post program aftercare for one hour twice a week. Guilt can play an important role in lack of successful recovery. Drugs and alcohol are often used as a solution to relieve discomfort around not being able to resolve issues which come up in our lives. Then we feel guilty about our inability to solve the problem, and then we have further guilt around using drugs or alcohol to avoid dealing with it. This leads to great stress and our lives may start to spiral out of control. Energy Psychology sessions addresses guilt and other issues, enabling you to move forward in a positive way and to let go of old issues.




10 Infrared Saunas


30 - 45 minute Infrared Sauna which starts the detoxification process. Your day will begin with this for the first 10 days of the program. This is a gentle process of detoxification which eliminates toxins and allows stored drug and alcohol byproducts and metabolites to leave the body. Saunas and steam baths have been used for centuries by many world cultures to induce detoxification.




3 or *4 massages


Deeply relaxing and restorative, massage further assists in the detoxification process by helping eliminate stored toxins from the body, while releasing physical pain and withheld emotional stress, often locked in muscles and tissues. Touch is the core ingredient of massage and also combines science and art. Practitioners learn specific techniques for massage and use their sense of touch to determine the right amount of pressure to apply to each person and locate areas of tension and other soft-tissue problems. Touch also conveys a sense of caring, an important component in the healing relationship. Massage improves circulation, which increases blood flow, bringing fresh oxygen to body tissues. This can assist the elimination of waste products, speed healing after injury, and enhance recovery from disease.




Naturopathic testing and supplementation


Licensed Naturopathic physicians conduct a thorough examination and create a personalised health program for you to use during and after you complete the Agora Protocol. Other health issues which may be compromised by the use of drugs or alcohol are addressed and treated.
