HYPOGLYCEMIA occurs when fasting blood glucose levels indicate low fasting serum (blood) glucose. Hypoglycemia is caused by poor diet (heavy carbohydrates, sugars, and skipped meals), low cortisol levels, low adrenal function, Hypothyroidism, and drug side effects. Symptoms include headaches, fatigue, shakiness, irritability if meals are missed, and sweet cravings.

SYNDROME X or Metabolic Syndrome occurs when fasting glucose levels are high (this is a pre-Diabetic condition. In Syndrome X, there is usually an accompanying decrease in good cholesterol (High Density Lipoprotein, HDL), elevation in bad cholesterol (Low Density Lipoprotein, LDL), elevation in triglycerides, and elevation in uric acid.  This is usually the result of a couch potato lifestyle combined with bad food choices. Symptoms include fatigue after meals and cravings for sweets.

Maintaining blood sugar balance (neither too high or too low) is necessary to be healthy and without it, not only does one have a risk of Diabetes but also breakdown of adrenal, thyroid, gut, liver, and immune systems.

Hi, I’m Scott Brown DC, DABCN, FACFN, Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologist and wellness doctor. There are less than 1000 doctors world wide who have obtained this recognition.I specialize in optimizing function of what I consider the 3 most important components of health: brain (neurology), spine (nerve function), and metabolic function (thyroid, liver, blood sugar/insulin, adrenals, etc.).

My neurology practice consists of rehabilitating Vertigo, Balance, Movement, Cognitive/Memory, Mood, Learning, Sleep, Developmental, Autistic Spectrum, Spinal Cord, Fibromyalgia and Brain Trauma disorders – to name a few.

My spinal practice consists of rehabilitation of Musculo-skeletal, Neck, Back, Hip, Headache, Migraine, Extremity, Carpal Tunnel, Tennis Elbow, Rotator Cuff, Sciatica, and Thoracic Outlet disorders – to name a few.

My metabolic practice emphasizes support and prevention of blood sugar (Hypoglycemia, Insulin Resistance, and Diabetes), Thyroid (Hypothyroidism, Hyperthyroidism), Adrenal (Hyperadrenalism, Hypoadrenalism), Hormonal (male and female), Gastrointestinal, Kidney, Liver/Gall Bladder, Anemic, and AUTOIMMUNE  Disorders – to name a few.

We utilize cutting edge diagnostics and treatments with non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical brain based therapeutics. The procedures of chiropractic neurology are based on the intimate connection between the central nervous system and the musculoskeletal system mediated by sense receptors in muscles, eyes, ears, and nose. Modalities used include but are not limited to: proprioceptive (touch) stimulation, spinal adjustments, visual (eye exercises and light) stimulation, auditory (music and Interactive Metronome), olfactory (smell) stimulation, and cognitive  therapies. Physical therapies include: cold laser, hydrotherapy, EMS, oxygen therapy, and vibration.

The high impact field of chiropractic neurology was the subject of the PBS special AMAZING HEALERS called ” Waking Up The Brain”  The CD is available through our office.
