1.7 million Americans sustain a brain injury each year. Early and equal access to care for all is our goal. We will be sharing with you ideas on how to promote brain injury awareness in your community.
Charleston, SC (PRWEB) March 09, 2012
March 2012 is brain injury awareness month in North America. Jason Deierlein, traumatic brain injury and coma survivor, has created a place online for other TBI Survivors called "My Positive Perspective".
Jason shares from personal experience by stating, "Populations hear so much on the bodies' health, but for no particular reason, the masses hardly ever hear about the health of the mind. The good news is that most of the same things that benefit the body also benefit the brain. However, the same things that are bad for the body are also bad for the mind."
Brain Injury Awareness is a time to remember that "...brain injuries can occur at any time, to anyone. TBI does not discriminate." Jason feels by creating http://www.MyPositivePerspective.com, he has given a voice to people who have experienced TBI, friends and family members caring for injured loved ones, and all other health & wellness minded individuals who simply desire to stay healthy.
"As a brain injury survivor myself, one can assume excitement as it is shown what good informative things we have in store for the audience. People in general would greatly benefit from having education and knowledge as what these elements are. My Positive Perspective is proud to distribute this information because if people are aware of how to better nurture our minds, it will only lead to an improvement in overall health." - Jason Deierlein.
Commemorating Brain Injury Awareness Month, Jason has created series of videos featuring cognitive and neurological experts like Dr. Matthew Antonucci, DC, DACNB. "Dr. Matt," is Charleston's only active Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologist.
For the March Brain Injury Awareness event(s), Dr. Matt Antonucci collaborated with "My Positive Perspective" team to created an open dialogue video entitled, "Six Important Factors for Brain Health." The brain-health video is available free of charge on My Positive Perspective.
Jason Deierlein states, "Much like physical health, mental health is prone to diseases and mutations that we do not always have the luxury in dictating. There are some circumstances where the health of the brain suffers a disease that affects its development in an adverse way. When these ailments are suffered, people like knowing what can be done to minimize that ailment and how it can be overcome."
Jason and Dr. Matt agree, "As in all previous video episodes, My Positive Perspective put this broadcast together for the purpose of directly benefiting the viewer. Eating correctly is one thing that affects health, and its importance is felt by the mind as well as the body.
Hopefully, as we work together in healing our bodies & minds, this video publication "brain health" episode will help convince people to take better care of their brain, and make aware what can be done to maintain such an important and complicated element of nutrients in peoples' bodies."
In light of the seriousness of traumatic brain injury in North America, Jason Deierlein of My Positive Perspective and author of "Return From a Comatose Mind, along with Dr. Matthew Antonucci share the sentiments of the National Brain Injury Association
"A brain injury can happen anytime, anywhere, to anyone – a brain injury does not discriminate. In fact, 1.7 million Americans sustain a brain injury each year. Early and equal access to care for all is our goal. We will be sharing with you ideas on how to promote brain injury awareness in your community." - The Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA)
