About the Author
In 2011 Cavin Balaster sustained a severe traumatic brain injury that left him comatose with less than a 10% chance of ever regaining consciousness beyond a persistent vegetative state. He didn’t eat, walk, or talk for months while he was in the hospital. He was breathing from a tube in his neck, receiving nutrition from a tube in his belly, and his left hand was completely flexed inward. About a year after his injury, he was introduced to a nutritional protocol that helped him begin to regain some mental clarity. That’s when he dove into an intense study of why nutrition made such a difference. For over 6 years, he has devoted his life to studying metabolism, neurometabolism, mechanisms of neuroplasticity, neuroscience, and nutrition, while reaching out to doctors, researchers, practitioners, and neuroscientists, to learn everything he can to optimize his brain function and to maximize his recovery. Cavin started an award-winning blog and a podcast (“Adventures in Brain Injury”), where he interviews doctors, practitioners, researchers, and others involved in neurorehabilitation and brain function. It is available on iTunes and at adventuresinbraininjury.com. How to Feed a Brain is the culmination of the nutritional tools Cavin has learned through this journey. He wrote this book to share with others the nutritional information that has helped him to regain his brain function, in hopes of changing lives and helping others improve their brains.
