Endi Sztamenits will share his story about his brain injury and recovery. Endi is a Veteran, but his accident did not happen while in the service. Brain health problems can arise from many sources, not just accidents.
Endi’s friend (and boss ) Jake Fuller – Navy SEAL – will be with him to share a little about their Veteran owned company and involvement with the Brain Performance Institute. Jake was on the ground level of launching the warrior program in Dallas, Texas. Awareness, Resources and Treatment, have come a long way since the 1990s.
The touchstone of brain health is a person’s ability to function well in daily life and work. This includes making wise decisions, solving problems, interacting successfully with others, and enjoying an emotional balance. All of these functions demand the capacity to remember, comprehend and learn; to process information, events and people; to think strategically; and to be innovative in solving problems as they arise.
The brain is not a static organ; it changes continually in line with how we use it to think, interact, learn, feel and imagine. Our habits, such as physical exercise, nutrition, sleep, and stress management, contribute to or detract from the brain’s performance. Training and lifestyle habits can maintain and even strengthen brain health by keeping the brain’s complex circuits highly synchronized with a healthy blood supply. Better brain health means better brain performance.
At the Center for BrainHealth, we are pioneers in a new field of research that powers brain strength and performance, discovering markers of health, drivers of performance, preventive care protocols and interventions for brain recovery. The Brain Performance Institute utilizes that research to empower everyone to think better for themselves, and take charge of their brain. Together, we can unlock brain potential.
