In this information age, we are bombarded with libraries of information that are impossible to sift through in order to find effective and personalized tools to optimize brain function and repair. I have navigated the winding roads of recovery, and have been researching the brain like my life depends on it… because it does!

When is the best time to work with me?

The brain is most plastic (able to adapt and to change) early after an injury, making the early stages a powerful stage to ensure positive, rather than negative plasticity. When we practice doing something the wrong way, especially in an enhanced state of plasticity (like soon after a brain injury), we get very good at doing whatever it is the wrong way. With guidance, we can be sure to give your loved one the best possible outcome. 

The early stages are the most crucial time for recovery and are indeed the best time to start working with me. When comatose there is so much that can be done that is not within the standard of care. I coach my clients to successfully speak with their medical team in order to implement treatments that are beyond the standard of care.

If you are serious about optimizing you or your loved one’s recovery…

Invite Cavin to Speak at Your Event!















In 2011 Cavin Balaster sustained a severe traumatic brain injury that left him comatose with less than a 10% chance of ever regaining consciousness beyond a persistent vegetative state.  He didn’t eat, walk, or talk for months while he was in the hospital. He was breathing from a tube in his neck, receiving nutrition from a tube in his belly, and his left hand was completely flexed inward.

About a year after his injury, he was introduced to a nutritional protocol that helped him begin to regain some clarity.  That’s when he dove into an intense study of why nutrition made such a difference. For over 6 years, he has devoted his life to studying metabolism, neurometabolism, mechanisms of neuroplasticity, neuroscience, and nutrition, while reaching out to doctors, researchers, practitioners, and neuroscientists, to learn everything he can to optimize his brain function and to maximize his recovery.


Book Cavin to share his experience and perspectives with groups of all sizes — conferences, keynotes, luncheons, lectures, commencements, graduations, classrooms, and private gatherings. His drive is to help as many people as possible in the greatest way possible and he does so by bringing an informative, personal, positive, and genuine approach to speaking that reaches people of all walks… from middle school students to practitioners and businesses.

My goal is to provide an upbeat and informative experience with useful takeaways, on a variety of topics such as brain injury, vision, rehabilitation, neurology, nutrition, physical therapy, and mental health. Of course, if you have something special in mind, we’ll work together to make sure you’re satisfied. I tailor my comments and direction to suit audiences and situations. I also enjoy Q&A sessions–and as a musician, I’m more than happy to perform. I’m passionate about guiding and inspiring others to empower themselves.
