Brain Injury Productions is not all about Brain Injury...
What is in the name?? When interviewed about the naming and the creation of this organization, the Founder/President and CEO explains it best by describing it as a mission. A mission to change society's perception of what Brain injury is and how to care for it, a mission to provide better and quicker access to resources, and a mission to inform the disabled (hereon referred to as challenged) of their rights that are still being hidden from them. It is a walk, guidance, and salvation, to bringing about a more peaceful world for everyone's benefits.< Per Martial Arts Tenets, To help build a more peaceful world)
It is a mission to remove fear!
It is a mission to introduce the state of being...
It is a mission to remove the word disabled from human language...
It is a mission of acceptance.
It is a mission to encourage love for your neighbors, as directed by our creator, and written in scripture. <Our Blog speaks a lot about faith, religion, and our creator> and what we are supposed to be doing.
It is a mission to connect society emotionally and intellectually with those living with disability/challenges through production of documentaries as well as our blogs.
Typically hearing the words Brain Injury, automatically one thinks of trauma to the head and brain. This is not entirely true. There should be a new word or group of words that should be termed to describe Neuro -Dysfunction.
What is Neuro-Dysfunction??
It is a series of dysfunctional, and unhealthy messages sent to the brain causing healthy neurons to become unstable producing an abnormal state of being including damage to the neuro pathways caused by shearing (minor tearing of brain tissue), blunt force which causes scarring, and also including the unforeseen, hidden messages lying dormant in a person's DNA. ( Look at it as a Trojan or a Worm hidden within computer scripting).
Ask yourself this... Has there ever been a time in my life where I woke up in the morning and I just could not pull it together, I could not get out of bed? Where I felt like I wanted to rip someone's head off, yet at the same time I wanted to curl up into a ball and cry. My body ached so bad like I had been working out... and yet I have not. I can't even get my thoughts straight. You stumble out of bed in a hurry to get to work, and grab cold left over pizza to eat for breakfast, or maybe even throw a toaster waffle in grab it and dash. Though your hunger is getting satisfied your brain is not and your fighting throughout the day to focus. What is happening here is Neuro-Dysfunction. Your brain is starving. Let's take a look at the hormones that take a big part in brain function. Melatonin, Serotonin, Tryptophan, Magnesium, Potassium and Vitamin D. Melatonin, Serotonin Tryptophan, and Vitamin D work together to regulate sleep patterns. To get these hormones to function properly you must ingest the foods that produce these hormones at appropriate times to ensure proper sleep. Let's just say you would've been better off to eat a banana and drink a glass of milk for breakfast to boost you. Imagine if you already have a documented Neuro-Dysfunction. Say in the case of an injury, Aspergers, Autism etc, the effects of your hormones being low can devastate ones system and worsen the symptoms of Neuro-Dysfunction. Diet, and healthy eating is a large part of brain health. More importantly when there is a mis -diagnosis of bipolar and schizophrenia, when the likely cause is food allergies. What about the aging person, who might've lived a life of not knowing how to eat proper, their metabolism is slowing down, their bodies are used to abuse and toxin; starving their bodies and minds to develop the diseases of aging. This describes the repetitive dysfunctional messages sent to the brain. Now we are dealing with the drug epidemic. Recent studies have linked mood altering pharmaceuticals to furthering brain damage.
Here is a way of looking at this... when learning crime prevention (as an example), you will learn of how drugs are made. It is quite scary to see the toxic chemicals that go into this process and people are ingesting this stuff. We also learn that street drugs are leading the way to brain damage. Also a recognized disability under The ADA. Then we hear of pharmaceuticals that are cocaine based. What other harmful ingredients are put into pharmaceuticals? It is quite insane.
