In 2011 Cavin Balaster survived a two-story fall but was given less than a 10% chance of recovery. He didn't eat, walk, or talk for months.

After being introduced to functional medicine, functional neurology, and other modalities to optimize his recovery, Cavin now plays guitar, sings, practices martial arts, drives, rides motorcycles, camps, swims, and even does backflips off of diving boards! His mission and passion is to pay his fortune forward by sharing the most effective tools to optimize brain function and repair.

These interviews began as simple "talking head" video recordings of Cavin with each guest. But throughout the interview, we've "enhanced" the experience with graphics and slides to make sure your brain retains as much of this incredible information as possible!

This Interview Series is to celebrate the pre-launch of Cavin's new book: How to Feed a Brain: Nutrition for Optimal Brain Function and Repair. Learn more and hear what practitioners are saying below.
Check out what practitioners are saying about the book!
Dr. Mark Hyman, MD
Director the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine, 10x New York Times #1 bestselling author

"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, 4x New York Times #1 Bestselling Author
"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Fortunately, this outdated paradigm is shifting, and How To Feed A Brain will be a key piece of this change.“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."
