Dr. Jeff Bradstreet’s Latest Protocol

As you may have read in my previous blog, Dr. Jeff Bradstreet was the guest speaker at Dr. Corbier’s open house last Saturday.  I am the health coach on Dr. Corbier’s team.  The open house was a lovely affair with an amazing​ aray of healthy foods and fun activities for the kids.

As an aside before I go into Bradstreet’s talk, Dr. Corbier’s identical twin brother who is a doctor too was there.  They were incredibly similar — even as identical twins go.  They didn’t just look alike, they had similar voices, body language, and even their gentle, sweet personalities.  They did a cute skit with Dr. Corbier’s brother playing the role of the mainstream doc saying things like, “Where’s the double-blind, placebo …”  Dr. Corbier patiently answered all of his questions.  Eventually, Dr. Corbier’s brother “came around.”  It was a fun way to explain functional medicine.

Dr. Bradstreet’s Protocol

The event ended with Dr. Jeff Bradstreet’s talk.  If you’re not familiar with him, he is an internationally recognized autism specialist and researcher.  He discussed several of the core tools he is using in his autism protocol.

Diet

Of course, diet is a key feature of everybody’s protocol.  His point about diet was that it’s a critical tool for returning balance to the gut flora and microbiome.

Supplements

He briefly mentioned the basics such as vitamin D and 5MTHF then went into some less well-known supplements.

    • Palmitoylethanolamide (Brand: PeaPure) — According to Dr. Bradstreet, PeaPure treats inflammation as well as gut, brain and mast cells.  It stablizes the immune system.  Dr. Bradstreet takes it himself for his severe allergies.  He’s able to use it in lieu of allergy medication.  Palmitoylethanolamide  cannot be sold it the US.  You can have it shipped from Europe where it’s widely used.
    • Medicinal Cannabis  — Yes, that’s medical marijuana.  I’ve seen a lot of talk about cannabis at autism conferences but never delved into it because I know Dr. Campbell McBride says marijuana can trigger scizophrenia.  Dr. Bradstreet cleared this up for me.  He explained that one ingredient in cannabis called tetrahydrocannabinol is the principal psychoactive constituent that causes both the “high” and the risk of schizophrena.  Bradstreet explained that simply heating cannabis removes the tetrahydrocannabinol.  This heated version is a powerful anti-inflammatory.  He said, “Big pharma hates this stuff.”  🙂

Energy Therapies

Dr. Bradstreet is actively studying and treating patients with two forms of energy therapy:

    • Low Level Light (Laser) Therapy (LLLT) — LLLT is a form of laser therapy.  He listed several benefits of LLLT.  It decreases inflammation, decreases edema, decreases neuron excitotoxicity, decreases apoptosis (cell death), increases synaptogenesis, and increases neurotrophins (a family of proteins that support neurons).
    • Magnetic Resonance Therapy (MRT) —  MRT is aimed to activate reparative processes in specific cells and tissues.  Dr. Bradstreet treated Formula One racecar driver, Jeff MacPherson, with it with great success.

Dr. Bradstreet’s talk ended with a discussion of plans for Dr. Bradstreet and Dr. Corbier to continue collaborating.

Have you tried any of the therapies Dr. Bradstreet is using?  I’d love to hear your experience!

Here’s a little about Dr. Corbier:

Dr. Corbier is a Board Certified Pediatric Neurologist. While he is a generalist – treating all childhood neurological conditions – he has a special interest in working with children with Autism and related spectrum disorders and PANDAS.  He is presently conducting research in the area of speech-language delay. He is also dedicated to the study of nutrition and its role in brain related disorders.

Dr. Corbier has been recognized for his work both within the greater Charlotte community as well as nationally. He has been awarded the ‘Patient Choice Award – Favorite Physicians in NC’ for 5 consecutive years and the ‘Compassionate Doctor Award’ for 4 consecutive years. He has shared his work on TV, radio, medical conferences, and lectures/workshops.  He has authored several books and articles, including topics on autism, nutritional approaches to treatment, as well as his ‘Restoration Model’.

Here’s what I know personally about Dr. Corbier: 

Dr. Corbier is known for his gentle, kind bedside manner and his team approach to healing.  I’ve shadowed him in his office and seen first-hand the kind of empathetic and supportive care he provides for his patients.  He has also surrounded himself with a team of specialists who support his patients.  His team includes a nutritionist, an independent compounding pharmacist, a neuromodulation specialist, a behavior specialist, and a health coach.  I have the privilege of serving as the health coach.

Those of you who live in Raleigh may wonder why you haven’t heard of Dr. Corbier yet.  When I started working with Dr. Corbier a little over a year ago, there was no promotion of his practice because it was full, and he was unable to take new patients.  In fact, he filled his practice within a year of opening it which is pretty rare.  Now that he’s moving into a larger office and expanding his staff, he will be able to take on new patients again.

Here are the details for Dr. Corbier’s open house:
