Recovery Potential Partnership

    During a medical crisis, friends and families are often shocked by the horror of their situation.

    Some feel overwhelmed, powerless, and alone while navigating the medical system that they have been hurled into. 

    Some patients are given a very grim prognosis and loved ones are told to say goodbye to the person they once knew. 

    Survivors who were not in a life threatening situation or who have passed the survival stage are often told to “get used to their ‘new normal.’” 

    The impairments and challenges from a brain Injury can be vast and far reaching. Social isolation, anger outbursts, balance problems, headaches, seizures, visual disturbances, incontinence, and overall dependence on others are just a few things that brain injury survivors would like to change in their experience.

    For caretakers, the emotional and physical exhaustion can be overwhelming on a good day and can often feel hopeless. Many people turn to the internet where they sometimes find some hope in success stories. While these success stories are inspiring, nothing can ensure that they or their loved one will have a similar outcome. 

    What if you were able to partner with an experienced brain injury survivor and thriver who can bring his experience, knowledge, and network of medical professionals to help you to navigate the maze of information and care options.

    My name is Cavin Balaster. I partner with clients all over the world to support neurological and overall health in a way that aims to provide the greatest recovery potential. 

    After waking from my second coma over several weeks of minimal consciousness, I found myself unable to eat, walk, or talk for months.

    Some of the doctors told my family to get used to their “new normal.”

    I have never been interested in that disempowering narrative.


    While integrating both mainstream medicine for certain treatments, as well as practices that were outside of the “medical standard of care,” I have recovered beyond anyone’s expectations.

    I am now loving my life and am dedicated to improving recovery potential for anyone afflicted with trauma and neurological injury or disease.

    • Cavin partners with  physical and emotional trauma survivors to release dysfunctional patterns, to instead develop functional habits and patterns to accomplish their goals, and to develop and to live into their values.
    • Cavin combs through medical research regularly and consults with his mentors in allopathic, naturopathic, clinical, and functional medicine and nutrition.

    • Cavin provides tools for medical empowerment so that you can receive the medical treatments you choose (and not what you don’t)… even when those treatments are outside of the “medical standard of care.”

    What is The “Medical Standard of Care?”

    The “medical standard of care” was coined for malpractice cases and it is typically defined as:

    the level and type of care that a reasonably competent and skilled health care professional, with a similar background and in the same medical community, would have provided under similar circumstances.

    If it makes sense to utilize a treatment other than the reasonably competent, similar, and same, standard of care, Cavin shows his clients how to empower themselves to successfully get the treatment they choose.
