Course Description

The Highway to Health Via The Vagus Nerve Webinar with Dr Erik Reis

This webinar will take a deep dive into understanding the autonomic nervous system and its impact on our general health and wellness. We will specifically focus on the interaction between the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems, their impact on our overall health, and, more importantly, what we can do to promote optimal health in our patient populations.

Learning Outcomes:
1.) Discuss the interplay between the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems.
2.) Explain how changes in autonomic function affect the brain and body, specifically due to poor lifestyle choices, trauma, and nutritional deficiencies.
3.) Share relevant research about the gut/brain connection and how non-thermal low-level laser therapy (LLLT) can optimize recovery within these systems.
4.) Give an overview of the neuroinflammatory cascade of trauma and how low-level laser impacts inflammatory processes.

Dr. Reis is also a Certified Brain Injury Specialist through the American Brain Injury Alliance and has been a clinical educator with Erchonia for the past two years after working extensively with their world-class technologies for nearly a decade.

At The Neural Connection, his practice primarily focuses on treating complex neurological disorders that range from traumatic brain injuries (TBI’s), dysautonomia, sport-related concussions, vestibular-related disorders (Vertigo/Dizziness), complex regional pain syndromes (CRPS), headaches/migraines, and chronic pain syndromes. His treatments focus on individualized neurological rehabilitation protocols to increase function through sensorimotor training and neuro-orthopedic exercises. 

He manages pain and dysfunctional movement by utilizing corrective exercises, gait-retaining protocols, and individualized neuromuscular training programs that fit his patients’ specific needs. He also utilizes comprehensive nutritional and metabolic testing to address potentially limiting dysfunctions of the immune, endocrine, and nervous systems. 

Dr. Reis believes the connection between neurological function and nutritional status is essential to understanding how to fully maximize brain function, which is why he takes a multifaceted approach to improving his patient’s brain health and wellness.

Dr. Reis is also the Co-Founder and Director of Health and Wellness at Nobody Studios; A rebel venture studio focused on the radical ideation, innovation, and creation of people-first start-up companies.
