"Nutrition is fundamental to our brain health. Time after time, the research and clinical outcomes prove that our dietary choices have a profound effect on our function. 

In “How to Feed a Brain,” Cavin uses his own personal experience as an example and creates an easy-to-implement road map of nutritional changes to support your brain function and repair.

The concepts he discusses are supported by a growing body of research evidence. This book is a welcome tool for people with neurological conditions and anyone who wants to optimize their brain performance."
Dr. David Perlmutter MD, FACN
Author, New York Times #1 Bestsellers, Grain Brain, and The Grain Brain Whole Life Plan
"Cavin Balaster contextualizes incredible adversity as a learning event and then transcends to the next step to share his knowledge.

His ideas are absolutely in line with current neuroscience and have the added validation of personal experience."
Robb Wolf, Former Research Biochemist and 2X New York Times/WSJ Best Selling Author 
“Ten years ago most health professionals would have scoffed at the notion that what we eat, how we sleep, and how we move, could have profound impacts on our health in general, and our brain health in particular. 

Fortunately, this outdated paradigm is shifting, and ‘How To Feed A Brain’ will be a key piece of this change.“
Dr. Terry Wahls M.D. Author of The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions 
"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, this book is for you."
Dr. Datis Kharrazian DHSc, DC, MS
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 healthcare 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."
-Jessica Flanigan, Clinical Nutritionist, Author of “The Loving Diet: Going Beyond Paleo into the Heart of What Ails You” 
"How to Feed A Brain is a brain nutrition game changer. A must for those needing nutritional support to heal the brain in a straightforward and cutting-edge style. As the field of brain nutrition grows, this book will be a treasured resource for many.

For practitioners like me, this book provides a crystal clear nutrition roadmap for my clients.

Cavin is truly an inspiration. He has taken his own stumbling block and turned it into a stepping stone to share with the world. Cavin shows us how the human spirit can grow and even flourish under the hardest of circumstances."

About the Author
-Cavin Balaster  
Author of How to Feed a Brain, creator of and, 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, even practice martial arts... I even do backflips off of diving boards!
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.
