Episode #21: Functional neurology for rheumatoid arthritis and gut problems
Download this podcast
A patient with painful symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) went to doctor after doctor but her tests kept coming back negative, which is common in the early stages of RA. When she went to see Dr. Geronimo, he saw in her obvious signs of autoimmunity. Although functional medicine protocols helped, it was functional neurology to address cerebellar decline that really turned this patient around — her gut function was restored in less than a week. Dr. Geronimo explains how you can tell if your brain plays a role in your gut problems, and how Zumba, Tai Chi, and core exercises can serve as profound neurological rehabilitation in some cases.
Dr. Rommel Geronimo is a functional medicine and functional neurology practitioner in the San Diego area. http://sdbraincenter.com/
