Emory Neurophysiologic Institute To Release Documentary And Book
The institute uses Dr. Emory's model, developed in 1987, that monitors and measures each persons' automatic brain and bodily physiology and translates their data into a personalized treatment. In contrast to the psychiatric approach that directs treatment at symptom reduction, Dr. Emory's approach seeks to identify and resolve inherited physiologic variations that can manifest as a persistent physical illness and/or a learning problem, substance dependence or mental disorder.
The documentary and book seek to inform medical doctors and the public about inherited brain variations that are not recognized in everyday medicine and clinical psychology, leading to sub-optimal treatment. Dr. Emory's database applies the latest findings in basic neuroscience that suggest persistent physical and mental disorders are due to failing homeostatic interactions within the brain and between the brain and other bodily systems.
"A healthy brain automatically balances itself and other bodily systems 24/7; yet, inherited differences in brain function can impair these interactions and cause persistent distress. The documentary and book outline many successful patients helped by our method," says Dr. Hamlin Emory, M.D.
