Many suffer with anxiety, depression, fatigue, Brain Fog, post-concussion brain injuries, or neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimers, Parkinson’s, and Multiple Sclerosis. Others suffer with attention deficit problems, hyperactivity, or autism symptoms.
Is there hope for improvements?
In our experience, the answer is usually “yes” as long as we work to “Solve the Puzzle” of why your brain is suffering.
The science of neuroplasticity tells us that our neurons (brain cells) can change (plasticity) more than we imagine. This means our brain can rewire even after a stroke or brain injury to take over the functions of the damaged areas in ways that can sometime seem miraculous. After years of abuse, neglect, and suffering, our brain has a remarkable ability to heal and change.
What does our brain need to rewire and heal?
Energy – we need our mitochondria to work really well to power the rewiring miracle of neuroplasticity. We have tools like healing lasers, frequency specific microcurrent, pulsed magnetic field therapy and a host of nutraceutical supplements to recharge our neurons and body.
Stimulation – we need activation of critical brain control centers – especially the parasympathetic controls centers located in our brain stem to dial back our stress response and turn on:
Healing and Repair
Calm and Peaceful
Digestion and Detox
Mitochondrial repair and regeneration
We use tools like unilateral spinal neurologic adjusting, Vagal stimulation therapies, and brain activation therapies.
Exercise – since neurons that fire together, wire together, we must use these new brain circuits we are creating or we lose them. Vagal stimulation exercises, Neuromodulation therapies, and sensory stimulation therapies can have especially powerful benefits.
In short, we need to “Solve the Puzzle” of why your brain is suffering to help create a “Happy Brain”
A consult or Foundation Visit is a great way to get started. Others who want learn even more about their brain start with a Brain Scan.

The Microbiome is currently one of the most intensely researched areas in science. PubMed, the NIH federal library of medical research, shows over 86,000 results for published research papers on our Microbiome, almost all of it in the last five years.
What is our Microbiome?
What are practical steps to support our microbiome and our immune system so we can stay well in challenging times:
It is the 100 Trillion non-human cells that live in us and on us. It is the “germs” that live on our skin (2 million per ½ inch square on our forearm), in our mouth, our sinuses, our bloodstream, our gut and everywhere inside and outside our body. In fact, our human cells are outnumbered by the “germs” that make up our Microbiome. In reality, we are 100 Trillion “germs” covered in human skin.
Most of these “germs” are bacteria and viruses that seek to coexist peacefully with us and promote our health and wellbeing. Most of them live in our gut, especially in our Large Intestine. They play critical roles in digestion, metabolism, immune health, brain health, and store 98% of all the genetic information (DNA) we need to stay healthy and thrive. In fact, our mitochondria talk to our gut bacteria. We need a healthy microbiome to have healthy mitochondria, the foundation of energy and Wellness!
Staying Well In Covid
If our immune system can handle 100 trillion germs in and on us, can it also handle the common cold, flu, or Covid virus? Of course – as long as we take care of our immune system so it is working reasonably well. What would happen if we put as much time, effort, and energy into boosting our Microbiome and immune Wellness as we do to masking, distancing, and worrying?
The less your food has been doctored, the less you need a doctor. Minimize eating food that has been processed or doctored. Go light on dead food that comes from “food coffins” – the boxes, cans, and plastic that entombs dead food. Eat more of the “fresh stuff”.
Eat what your body likes rather than what you like. We tend to like the sugary “junk food” loaded with excitotoxic taste enhancers that excite our brain neurons to death. They also starve our microbiome “rainforest” of the critical fiber it depends on. A piece of cake feeds only us and makes us old, fat, and sick. A piece of broccoli feeds both our body and our microbiome to keep us lean, energized, and youthful.
Fix your metabolism. When is works, you have a “thin person” microbiome. When it is in trouble, we often develop a “fat person” microbiome. Fixing your metabolism often requires a “solve the puzzle” approach involving optimizing our mitochondria, gut health, brain balance, eating smart & supplementing to fit our unique genetic needs, optimize sleep, and detox. Get guidance from experienced professionals like we have at Renovare if you need help in this area.
Feed Your Microbiome Diversity. Repairing our microbiome diversity is critical to restoring Wellness. An important indicator of a healthy microbiome is Great bowel movements. This means at least 2/day, formed dark brown, don’t float, no straining, and almost no need to toilet tissue to clean after. Here are the practical steps:
Eat the Rainbow. Strive to eat 9 colors or fresh/frozen veggies or fruits per day. Always go heavy on veggies and much lighter on fruit.
Each day, eat one of the Root Veggies, eat two of the prebiotic foods, and at least one forkful of a fermented food from the lists below
Fermented Food with Live culture (in refrigerator section)
Sauerkraut (Wild Brine, Bubbles brands, etc)
Onion, Garlic, Leeks
Apple Cider Vinegar
Sweet Potatoes, Yams
When we take care of our Microbiome, it takes care of us
Renovare’s own Cassie Burton, founder of “Curiosity Junkie”, interviews founder and CEO of Renovare Wellness, Dr. Timothy Gerhart. This informative and empowering epidsode is based around Dr. Gerhart’s 5th and newest book “Creating an Invincible Immune System”. What does it take to stay healthy and happy? Listen and learn!!
What is an “Invincible Immune System”? It is an immune system that easily fends off viral (and other infectious) threats with potent antiviral/antimicrobial weapons. Then it quickly stops the attack to avoid damaging healthy tissue. It is vigilant and only responds when needed and maintains the complex balance between friendly microorganisms that live in and on us and the potential pathogens that could make us sick.
* What makes us sick is a weakened immune system combined with exposure to a “germ” trigger. Louis Pasteur, the famous microbiologist who discovered germs, is reported to have said that: “The germ is nothing, the terrain (immune system) is everything.”* Our wondrous, miraculous, incredible immune system is the difference. With the COVID-19 pandemic, over 25% (and rising with more testing) of those infected don’t get sick at all! Is now a great time to start creating a more “Invincible Immune System” so we stay in the “over 25%” group?* Let’s be real. Who has a “perfect” lifestyle to create an ideal “Invincible Immune System”? Likely no one. The good news is we don’t need perfect, we just need improvements to boost our immune balance while reducing our exposure to toxic stress, overwork, lack of sleep, toxins, and pathogens.
* Our medical disease care system appears stuck in the “wear a mask, wash your hands, keep your distance, and wait for a vaccine mode.” The question, “How do we boost our immune system to help us stay well regardless of the threat” is not being asked – or answered by the Centers for Disease control or the mainstream media.
* Join Dr. Gerhart and myself as we talk about what it takes to create an invincible immune system, to stay happy and healthy everyday.
* Taken from the Introduction of Dr. Timothy Gerhart’s book “Creating An Invincible Immune System” published in July 2020. To request a copy of “Creating An Invincible Immune System” contact: Http://BrainWellnessAZ.com Or call the Renovare Wellness By Design office @ 623-776-0206
Renovare Wellness is proud to announce that Dr. Timothy Gerhart currently working on his 5th book titled “Creating an Invincible Immune System – Empowering You to Stay Well in Challenging Times”.
Read the Introduction below that will guide you to an “Invincible Immune System”.
What is an “Invincible Immune System”? It is an immune system that easily fends off viral threats with potent anti-viral weapons. Then it quickly stops to avoid damaging healthy tissue. It is vigilant and only responds when needed and maintains the complex balance between friendly microorganisms that live in and on us and the potential pathogens that could make us sick.
When the seasonal flu, common cold, SARS, COVID or whatever virus is making its rounds, there are always those who, even though exposed, don’t get sick. They have an Invincible Immune System.
The fact is germs (viruses, flu, SARS, COVID, bacteria) don’t make us sick. If they did, 100% of those exposed would get sick every time they were exposed. Recent data on COVID 19 shows from 25% up to 50% of those exposed to the virus don’t get sick – many don’t even know they were exposed.
What makes us sick is a WEAKENED IMMUNE SYSTEM combined with exposure to a “germ” trigger. Louis Pasteur, the famous microbiologist who discovered germs is reported to have said on his deathbed that: “The germ is nothing, the terrain (immune system) is everything”.
Our immune systems have been keeping us well since the dawn of time. Yet, many live in viral fear. Annual flu epidemics kill 250,000 – 500,000 people each year. We have a long history of viral infection epidemics and pandemics. Recent history includes:
1918 Spanish Flu – led to up to 100 million deaths
1957 Asian Flu – led to 1-4 million deaths
1968 Hong Kong Flu – led to about 1-4 million deaths worldwide
1981-present AIDS Pandemic– led to over 32 million deaths worldwide
1997 Bird Flu – led to 352 deaths (a lot of scare at the time, few deaths)
2002-2004 SARS (from a coronavirus) outbreak – led to 774 deaths worldwide
2009 Swine Flu – up to 575,000 deaths worldwide
2012 MERS (another coronavirus) – led to 862 deaths
2014-2016 West African Ebola epidemic – led to more than 11,000 deaths
2015-present Zika Virus epidemic – led to over 50 deaths
2017-2018 United States Flu season – led to 60,000 to over 80,000 deaths
2019-2020 Coronavirus epidemic – 149,884 deaths worldwide as of 4/17/20) (Note: Death toll may be inflated since many deaths not conclusively linked to COVID 19)
Sobering, even scary list. The list above of diseases is sobering reminder that the latest COVID 19 pandemic is not the first and certainly not the last viral disease challenge we will face. Also, that the COVID 19 pandemic is not even in the same league compared to past challenges. The Spanish Flu led to 100 million deaths, COVID 19 to April 17th just 150,000 deaths. We are fortunate to have escaped a really serious immune challenge this time around.
With this long list of disease and death, how are any of us even still alive? What is the difference between those who get sick and die and those who not only survive, but often don’t even get sick?
Our wonderous, miraculous, incredible immune system is the difference. With the COVID 19 pandemic, over 25% (and rising with more testing)of those infected don’t get sick at all! Is now a great time to start creating a more Invincible Immune System so we stay in the “over 25%” group?
This “over 25% group” is a practical example of “Invincible Immune Systems” at work. This is the opposite of weakened, stressed, beat-up, toxic, drugged, diseased immune systems.
In active practice since 1983, often treating patients who are sick, I have been exposed to LOTS of viruses and other microbes. I have learned that the most important factor to me staying well is how well I am taking care of my immune system. Using many of the approaches I describe in this book, I am very rarely sick – less than one sick day every 5 years by my count. I now understand that when I get sick, it is my own darn fault. I have let excessive stress, overwork, under-rest, and more weaken my immune system while neglecting what is needed to build my immune system. As Louis Pasteur, the famous scientist who championed the “germ theory”, reportedly said on his deathbed, “The terrain (bio terrain or immune system) is everything, the germ is nothing”. To me this means our immune health is primary – the “germ” or microbe is secondary.
Immune challenges have been mounting to weaken large swaths of our population. We are woefully unprepared for major challenges like COVID 19. Make no mistake, this is not the last of our immune challenges.
Let me guide you through this book on the journey towards creating a more “Invincible Immune System”. This involves reducing the “bad stuff” (toxic and stressful loads) that weaken our immune system while a adding the “good stuff” to support our high-level immune wellness.
Let’s start together the journey to learn how to do just that.
Renovare looks forward to keeping you informed of the future release of “Creating an Invincible Immune System – Empowering You to Stay Well in Challenging Times”.
