What are brain sensitivity disorders?
Brain sensitivity disorders, or “BSDs,” are conditions that result in common chronic symptoms, such as headaches, dizziness, fatigue, brain fog, or chronic pain. The common mechanism of BSDs is called central sensitization.
The typical BSD history starts with an inflammatory response in the brain, often from a viral infection or trauma. The brain then undergoes an adaptive response, where the brain circuitry becomes sensitive to environmental triggers. After this happens, the symptoms become chronic, even when the original cause of inflammation resolves.
Treating BSDs can be difficult. What’s needed is an “integrative medicine” approach, where traditional medicine is combined with nutritional supplements and lifestyle changes. Dr. Djalilian pioneered the Integrative Neurosensory Rehabilitation (INR) approach that does just this. Contact us to find out more about INR therapy for BSDs.
