Recovery Potential Partnership

The impairments and challenges of brain injury, cognitive decline, or brain fog can be extensive and far-reaching:

      • Social isolation
      • Anger outbursts
      • Balance problems
      • Headaches
      • Seizures
      • Memory problems
      • Difficulty concentrating or paying attention
      • Slowed thinking or processing speed
      • Confusion or disorientation
      • Poor judgment or decision-making
      • Difficulty organizing thoughts or problem-solving
      • Language or speech difficulties
      • Mood swings or emotional instability
      • Irritability or agitation
      • Anxiety or depression
      • Changes in personality or social behavior
      • Impulsivity or lack of inhibition
      • Social withdrawal
      • Visual disturbances
      • Incontinence
      • Dependence on others

Survivors living with these symptoms yearn to change things. Yet they are often told to accept their “new normal.”

I have always rejected that disempowering narrative.

Often those navigating the complex medical system find themselves overwhelmed, powerless, and isolated. Some patients receive a bleak prognosis, leaving loved ones to say goodbye to the person they once knew.

For caregivers, the emotional and physical exhaustion can be overwhelming… some days leaving them feeling hopeless.

Many turn to the internet in search of hope through success stories. While these stories are inspiring, there’s no guarantee that survivors will experience a similar outcome.

What if you could partner with…

      • A brain injury thriver with knowledge, experience, and a network of medical professionals?
      • Someone who has empowered themselves and recovered beyond expectations?
      • Someone to help you navigate the overwhelming mental, emotional, and physical stress?
      • Someone to help you navigate the maze of information and care options?

My name is Cavin Balaster

I collaborate with clients worldwide to maximize recovery potential.

I have experienced neurologic challenges firsthand.

After waking up from my second coma, I found I could not eat, walk, or talk after weeks of minimal consciousness. I lived in this reality for months.

Doctors also advised me and my family to accept our “new normal.”

By integrating mainstream medicine with lesser known (or accepted) therapies…

I exceeded everyone’s expectations in my recovery.

Today I thrive, living a life I love, and dedicated to enhancing the recovery potential of others.
