Quiet Explosions: Healing the Brain
A Must-See Documentary, written, directed, and produced by award-winning filmmaker Jerri Sher
I have seen a number of movies on the subjects of PTSD and TBI, yet none have come close to the insight offered in the documentary Quiet Explosions: Healing the Brain. Through real life survivor stories, viewers gain a much better understanding of the life altering devastation in the aftermath of brain trauma.
These survivors struggle with debilitating symptoms resulting from brain injury and/or brain trauma. The documentary takes us on a journey through their darkest days as they fight to overcome psychological, physiological, and physical challenges.
Bringing much needed awareness, Quiet Explosions uncovers the connection between trauma and mental health conditions. In addition, this inspiring documentary delivers hope to sufferers by introducing successful collaborative treatment plans, such as Dr. Mark Gordon’s hormonal and nutritional protocol, along with the use of a functional brain map, called a SPECT scan, Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS).
I am a firm believer that a collaborative, integrative approach, blending conventional, complementary and alternative treatment methods, is the best course of action in treating any condition, especially when dealing with the brain. I was thrilled to see this collaborative approach reiterated in Quiet Explosions. This approach is the basis of my 5 Prong Approach to healing both the symptoms and the cause of any problem.
Dr. Mark Gordon, a neuroendocrinologist, explains in the documentary that trauma causes inflammation as well as hormonal and other deficiencies. These deficiencies cause a wide range of medical conditions. The survivors in this movie find success with his protocol, after years of failures with traditional medical treatment, such as prescription drugs. Why? Because the drugs were not treating the inflammation and/or hormonal dysregulation causing their severe symptoms.
As highlighted in the documentary, an integrative approach utilizing successful alternative treatments gives an individual the best chance at becoming whole again. And as the title states… Healing the Brain!
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs every 10 seconds and impacts 2 million people per year from all walks of life- not just military veterans or professional athletes. If you or a loved one have suffered a fall, have been in an accident, or play sports — or are having difficulty overcoming conditions or symptoms, I highly recommend this enlightening documentary.
