Who Are We?
Cavin Balaster:
-Cavin Balaster  
Author of How to Feed a Brain, creator of FeedaBrain.com and AdventuresinBrainInjury.com, and co-host of the Adventures in Brain Injury Podcast.
My name is Cavin Balaster. I am a speaker, author, coach, and a survivor of a severe traumatic brain injury. In 2011, I survived a two-story fall, was comatose for twelve days, diagnosed with a diffuse axonal injury (DAI) and was given less than a 10% chance of recovery. After finally waking from a 12-day coma, serious complications arose with the need to induce a second coma. In the following months, I endured severe brain fog, memory loss, breathing problems, in coordination with the left side of my body (my left hand was completely flexed inward), and...
I didn't eat, walk, or talk for months.
At a pivotal moment, I was introduced to functional medicine and functional neurology, which illuminated for me a different way of looking at recovery. As several treatments, exercises, and therapies were implemented...
I began to reclaim the mental clarity I had before my injury.
I utilized this regained clarity and dove into study, contacting practitioners of many different specialties to better understand how I could optimize my own recovery.
I now drive, ride bikes, camp, play guitar, sing, and even practice martial arts!
After my injury, I did not know if I'd ever recover enough to lead a successful life, but I vowed that if I did get better, I would work to share the most effective tools that I found throughout recovery, and that is what my websites are all about: Improving a Billion Brains… Improving a Billion Lives!
I have been working with doctors, nutritionists, professors, functional neurologists, and dieticians, to put together resources to help and guide others.

-Michelle Malmberg
Certified GAPS Practitioner and Co-Host of the
Adventures in Brain Injury Podcast 
Michelle Malmberg
Michelle is a former ballroom and Latin dancer, choreographer, a mother, and all-around lovely human being who
was given a 1% chance of survival after numerous seizures resulted in...
  • A coma with a rock bottom GCS (Glasgow Coma Scale of 3);
  • Imaging showing that she had a mandarin orange size tumor in her right frontal lobe 
  • A medical mishap resulted in a punctured carotid artery that bled out into her chest cavity requiring emergency thoracic surgery and a blood transfusion.
Once stabilized, the tumor was surgically removed and she worked toward a successful outcome and a remarkable recovery!
Michelle then acquired two untreated Strep infections which lead to Adult-onset PANDAS - a form of Autoimmune Encephalitis.
Unable to get medical assistance due to a lack of knowledge of such a rare condition, Michelle researched and identified her case independently. Two years later, testing via Moleculera Labs and diagnosis from a PANDAS specialist confirmed her research. Today she is a student of functional medicine and nutrition, fellow adventurer, and co-host of the Adventures in Brain Injury Podcast.

Why is this podcast important?
  • The Center for Disease Control estimates that more than 1.7 million brain injuries are sustained each year.
  • Of those injuries, it is estimated that 43% of those who suffer TBI will develop a long-term disability as a result. Neurodegenerative diseases are also a large problem and most of these patients are being fed processed formulas.
  • The CDC reports that in 2010, about 42% of individuals living in residential care communities had Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia.
  • The formulas and foods that are being provided to patients in hospital settings, and sometimes after discharge, contain loads of corn syrup, soy protein isolate, and milk protein solids, and we want to change that reality by giving real food options that contain all of the nutrients that we have found are important for brain function and repair.
  • The Feed a Brain book is a guide of how to make these meals, but, especially throughout the acute stages, caregivers are way too busy putting out fires to concern themselves with cooking and preparing these meals for better brain health. This is why it makes sense to have products pre-made and to advertise on the Feed a Brain website.

What are Practitioners Saying About Cavin Balaster and His Brain Book?
Dr. Datis Kharrazian, DHSc, DC, MS, MNeuroSci, FAACP, DACBN, DABCN, DIBAK, CNS,
author of Why Isn’t My Brain Working? and Why Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms?
"Faithfully following the principles of functional medicine played a large role in Cavin’s recovery from a near-fatal brain injury. He not only recovered, he has gone on to immerse himself in the field and tirelessly advocate for those with brain injuries.

This is not the kind of information you will find in the standard health care model. Optimal brain care and nutrition is a journey most patients must make on their own or with a qualified practitioner. However...
Cavin is a testament to the brain’s amazing willingness and even desire to improve and recover when it is cared for properly.
Cavin presents a thorough guide to brain nutrition that includes sections on gastric tube feeding — a big plus you won't find in other nutrition guides. Whether you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury, are wrestling with a neurodegenerative disease, or are simply interested in improving your brain health, this book is for you."
Dr. Bonnie Kaplan Ph.D.
Emeritus Professor of Medicine
at the University of Calgary
"This book is going to help many readers. 
I applaud Cavin for doing so much research and citing so much good scientific literature to ensure that his ideas are scientifically sound and accurate.
Nutrition is the foundation of a healthy body and brain, and Cavin knows this better than anyone. You won’t regret implementing his advice into your everyday life."
Dr.Jeremy Schmoe DC DACNB FABBIR- Owner of Minnesota Functional Neurology (MFNC) mnfunctionalneurology.com
“Cavin Balaster has an extreme passion for improving the current standards of neurorehabilitation and brain optimization for all individuals. Not only does he offer insight into the complexity of the neuro-immunological and inflammatory cascade that occurs in traumatic brain injury, but he has lived it, researched it, and spent thousands of hours taking this knowledge and putting together “How to Feed a Brain.”
This is a must read for anyone who is looking to improve their overall brain health.
Cavin not only knows how important the role of nutrition is in healing and rewiring a brain that has suffered trauma, but also how important brain-based rehabilitation can be for improving the circuitry of a bidirectional brain-gut axis. A sincere thank you to Cavin for writing this book, which will help so many people live a lifetime with better brain health.”  
Reed Davis
Founder of the Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Certification Course
“Cavin Balaster has accomplished something important in the field of nutrition and self-healing that few authors have been able to do, made even more remarkable by his own experience with traumatic brain injury.
Rarely does a writer so easily or succinctly provide both a good education and a good read on the same pages 
Nutrition is the foundation of a healthy body and brain, and Cavin knows this better than anyone. You won’t regret implementing his advice into your everyday life."
Dr. Terry Wahls M.D. 
author of The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions
 Using Paleo Principles
"How to Feed a Brain will change your life.
Conventional tube feedings’ main ingredient is high fructose corn syrup!

If you have a brain injury or brain disease, or simply want to avoid early memory loss, and want to have a step- by –step guide for making tube feeds, soups, stews and or meals that will nourish and repair your brain, you will find this a useful addition among your healing tools."
