Recovery Potential Partnership

After a severe brain injury, my family was told that I had less than a 10% chance of emerging from a coma and recovering beyond a persistent vegetative state.

I know the hardships of this experience and the challenges of navigating our healthcare system more than most ever will. 

I have experienced it first hand and have worked with families to navigate the overwhelming mental, emotional, and physical stress of neurological challenges from brain injury to Parkinson’s to addiction.

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

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

I reject 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.

Many turn to the internet in search of hope through success stories like my own. While these stories are inspiring, there’s no guarantee that survivors will experience a similar outcome. In the partnership I develop with clients, I bring my experience, training, and expertise in order to help people to protect their brains or to recover as much as possible after injury or degeneration. 

Who Am I?

My name is Cavin Balaster and I collaborate with clients worldwide to maximize recovery potential.

  • I am a brain injury survivor and thriver. I empowered myself by becoming educated on nutrition, neurology, physiology, and holistic health, building a network of medical professionals, and testing what I learned by implementing what was shown in research to be safe and effective. As a result, I have recovered beyond all expectations and have helped others to do the same.
  • I am trained in functional nutrition by the Functional Nutrition Alliance and have had functional neurology training from the Kharrazian Institute, and the Interdisciplinary Association of Functional Neurosciences and Rehabilitation (IAFNR)
  • I have been the keynote speaker for the Neuro Optometric Rehabilitation Association (NORA), the Interdisciplinary Association of Functional Neurosciences and Rehabilitation (IAFNR), The Mind-Eye Institute, Bastyr University, the World Congress on Brain Mapping & Therapeutics, Ketocon, the New Jersey Society of Optometric Physicians (NJSOP), and several brain injury alliances and foundations.
  • I am well-informed about various facets of health that impact neurology. This includes oral health, digestive health, immune health, hormonal health, circulatory health, and emotional health.
  • I have a deep understanding of neuroplasticity and neurorehabilitation and I can guide nutrition, supplementation, and lifestyle to mitigate neuroinflammation and to improve overall health in partnership with you and your healthcare team.
  • I am an experienced patient advocate who has been through the ins and outs of the medical system with firsthand knowledge going through it myself and also assisting clients during medical crises. 
  • I have strong relationships with speech-language pathologists, functional neurologists, neuro-optometrists, and naturopathic physicians who I consult with for individualized guidance.
  • I have direct experience collaborating with doctors, therapists, and medical teams to utilize the safest and most effective treatments and therapies for each family’s unique situation.
  • I am a trauma-informed survivor and thriver. I can assist and facilitate the functional integration of emotional or physical trauma.

Who Does Cavin Work With?

I partner with people who want to prevent or minimize the effects of neurological trauma and cognitive decline:

  • Brain injury survivors
  • Athletes who put their brains at risk
  • People with Brain Fog (often post COVID and/or post vaccine)
  • CTE
  • Epilepsy
  • Parkinson’s
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Families recovering from neurological and chronic conditions. 

I also partner with individuals with loved ones in medical crises as they navigate the complex medical system.

  • As a medical advocate, I guide clients in empowering themselves to foster effective collaboration with their medical team.
  • This collaborative approach may entail changes to diet, supplementation, and changes to medication. It may involve the relocation to different hospitals or exploring rehabilitative services, social programs, or addressing other requirements specific to your circumstances.
  • I help you to develop functional habits so you can achieve your goals.
  • I regularly review medical research and consult with allopathic, naturopathic, and functional medicine and nutrition mentors. This ensures the validity, safety, and efficacy of treatments, providing you with safer and more effective options than the conventional medical standard of care (ask me about this on our call).
  • I guide empowered medical decision-making, helping clients to receive the treatments they choose and avoid those they don’t want.
