Meet Dr. gail denton Ph.D.
MTBI Life Coaching offers a pathway towards recovery and strategies for supporting a more productive and fulfilling lifestyle.
Through self-discovery, professional therapies, research, and over 20 years of experience in private practice as a psychotherapist, I've not only succeeded in building a new life for myself, I've helped thousands of others through my MTBI Life Coaching Services and book publishing efforts.
Brainlash is a collection of subtle and often minuscule shears and tears inside the brain. The Brainlash motion that occurs during an injury can shake, jiggle or rearrange the tissue structure of the tissue within the brain.
Dr. Denton coined the term "brainlash" in 1991 in an attempt to define and describe her experience of sustaining a whiplash not only to her neck, but to her entire cerebrospinal structure, from the tailbone up through to the brain.
Brainlash effectively rattles the core of one's nervous system and supporting musculature, creating micro-shears that may lead to a wide variety of undesirable symptoms if untreated.
While these micro-shears lead to the manifestation of symptoms that are very real to the sufferer, they are frequently subtle and thus undetectable via conventional diagnostic tests geared towards more obvious injuries.
Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI) has many possible symptoms, which can range from subtle to devastating:
Working with Dr. Denton has been one of the most important decisions I have made since acquiring a traumatic brain injury.
Her experiences, knowledge, and holistic viewpoint combine with her lovely sense of humor to offer the guidance and support I need to continue managing my healing and moving my life forward in the face of a traumatic brain injury.
I am deeply grateful for Dr. Denton's service!

Although my brain injury was incurred through the stresses and chemical treatments of chemotherapy, Dr. Denton’s book Brainlash has been my constant companion.
I've read many books on mild brain insult and the similarities with other forms of brain injury, and what Dr. Denton explains—in simple to understand language— is a very real help to anyone suffering from those symptoms.
My continued involvement with Dr. Denton as a coach has brought about even better progress. I've incorporated different modalities, such as vitamin supplements, diet, exercise, CranioSacral Therapy and massage therapy which have helped my brain recover.
I highly recommend her book and coaching to give you the confidence you may need to help yourself with the healing process.

Dr. Denton was the first light for me in this haze of confusion and total discomfort. To realize that there are actually concrete things I can do to make myself feel better was such a huge relief.

All your tips have been such a help, especially about lighting and the ear plugs, as was the suggestion for dealing with white noise.
I've also been going to an osteopath for cranio-sacral work and it has helped the buzzing somewhat and I can go to certain restaurants, at their slow times, and not need the ear plugs.
But mostly what your coaching gave me was hope for the future.
You're a Star!!!!
