Dr. Aiko's background as a research scientist in the brain and artificial Intelligence for the Pentagon has given her a unique perspective on healing…She doesn't end with inner healing and deliverance, but after removing these 'log jams' of the soul, she flows with the Holy Spirit right into physical healings and miracles…
She has seen the Lord heal many brain dysfunctions, including schizophrenia, bi-polar, dyslexia and severe brain injuries from accidents.

Other areas of focus are: re-creative miracles, relationship issues, blockages to finances, PTSD, addictions and intimacy with God."

Each of them who have a child who has had a near drowning and suffers from nerological brain damage has seen progress that the Dr's said they would never see, and it is because of the treatments they have been able to do that make the parents of these children Believe in Miracles."

SF - Since the early '90s, studies like those of Dr. Michael Merzenich - of UCSF's Center for Integrative Neurosciences - revealed the brain's plasticity, which means that it continually adapts.  On the heels of such studies, the market for cognitive-training products emerged. Merzenich founded the Posit Science Corp. in 2003 and developed the Brain Fitness Program to strengthen neural pathways and speed up brain function.  Like other "neurobics circuit training" programs, the Posit Science Brain Fitness Program, available at vibrantBrains, has an array of exercises designed to stimulate parts of the brain. One is a sound-matching game that aims to sharpen clarity of memory; another hones visual memory cues. In addition to the Brain Fitness Program, vibrantBrains has the local franchise for the UCLA Memory Training Course, designed by Dr. Gary Small of UCLA's Center on Aging. 12/13/2007  The brain can be reprogrammed.

Blueberries, esp. wild/organic -http://webreprints.djreprints.com/738920785548.html -
"James A. Joseph, chief of the center's Laboratory of Neuroscience, hopes to look closely at the mechanisms involved in a previous experiment, in which he found that old rats fed a blueberry-rich diet grew new neurons — meaning blueberries seemed to help reverse age-related short-term-memory loss. The rats also regained some balance and coordination. The results have yet to be found in human clinical trials.  Dr. Joseph, author of a book called "The Color Code" that touts the value of pigmented food, isn't waiting..."I try to do a cup a day" he said."
 
Hormones - www.lef.org - 1/2012 - "Traumatic brain injury, by damaging the brain's hypothalamus, triggers dysfunction of the pituitary gland...If you are a veteran of the Gulf War, Iraq, or Afghanistan, the Millennium Health Centers (www.tbimedlegal.com or 1-818-990-1166) has a limited grant from Access Medical laboratories of Florida that will pay for your TBI Hormone Panel.  In California, Dr. Gordon offers the same...to law enforcement officers injured on the job...Life Extension health advisor at 1-866-864-3027)...Restoring hormone levels to their optimal, pre-injury and youthful levels results in remarkable recovery of many impaired functions."
 
Milk Thistle - http://www.psychologytoday.com/articles/200203/got-milk-thistle - "Researchers may have found a plant-based product to help fight infection and treat neurological disorders including Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases and brain trauma ."
Milk Thistle for liver regeneration and mushroom poisoning - http://www.herbalmedicinefromyourgarden.com/milk-thistle-health-benefits/ -
Milk Thistle - http://www.naturalpedia.com/Regeneration-16.html - " Milk thistle extract also has been shown to stimulate kidney-cell regeneration. Milk thistle is also one of the better herbs for stimulating the flow of bile, which is essential to good digestion. For this reason, it's helpful for improving the digestion of fats and also helpful in improving bowel elimination. DOSAGE I recommend one take a 200- to 250-milligram capsule of a standardized extract (80 to 85% silymarin) three times daily. This is equivalent to 480 to 600 milligrams of silymarin daily. If you suffer from digestive problems, then take it 15 minutes before or with a meal."
Milk Thistle - SUNY Upstate researchers find milk thistle extract may hold the key to developing effective herb-based treatments for neurological disorders including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, brain trauma, stroke and spinal cord injury. http://www.upstate.edu/news/article.php?title=301 -
“'Surprisingly, we found that milk thistle extract not only helped the nerve cells to grow more neurites (branches of nerve cells necessary for their normal function and that aid in the regeneration of new cells), but it also kept the nerve cells alive longer,' said (study investigator) Smita Kittur. 'We did not find this result in any of the other herbs we had tested.  We also found that St. John’s Wort, widely used as a treatment for depression, had only an immuno-stimulatory effect. Tea had a suppressive effect on both the nervous and immune systems, while ginger had only an immunosuppressive effect,' she said." (Be reminded that most scientific tests are not done with fresh/organic herbs or standardized real herbs, but often with generics/etc.)
 
Oxygen therapy for near drowning victims/patients - http://www.hugs4ndc.com/hyperbarics.html (There are also good reports from veterans who are left paralyzed and disabled, unable to be helped by conventional medicine, who have been helped by ongoing properly supervised hyperbaric oxygen therapy;)
 
Progesterone (a hormone taken as a vitamin supplement, skin cream or by intravenous prescription) can reduce inflammation, improve motor and functional recovery, plus reduce mortality (if taken within 24 hours after brain injury) per neuroscientist Donald G Stein. www.lef.org 11/2009 (see above link)...In late pregnancy it can provide fetus neuroprotection.
Progesterone: May Improve Outcomes from Brain Injury - "Progesterone is a powerful hormone... Progesterone injections in rats were still effective in reducing brain swelling and functional impairment even if treatment was delayed up to 24 hours after injury.7...Adding progesterone treatment reduced the death rate by more than 50%...Other neurological conditions for which progesterone might prove an effective treatment include stroke, pediatric brain injury, multiple sclerosis, and/or possibly even such neurodegenerative diseases as Alzheimer’s disease...It can be given intravenously through an injection site in the arm or leg.8" http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2009/nov2009_Progesterone-May-Improve-Outcomes-From-Brain-Injury_01.htm

"The material is able to be absorbed because it’s made from biocompatible polymers, which can be broken down into carbon dioxide and lactic acid, two things the body naturally gets rid of.  Another advantage of Plasti-Bone’s porous nature is it allows medication to fully penetrate it, unlike titanium and plastics."
