In 1990 at age 32, I finally graduated with a BS degree in Biological Conservation despite eight VP shunt brain surgeries, surgery inducted dyslexia, major short-term memory deficits, and anger management issues from inflammation in my brain. I immediately began my career as a Wildlife Biologist. In 2003, I started an environmental consulting business, Visger & Associates Inc after my ninth VP shunt surgery, and in 2010 launched The Visger Group Traumatic Brain Injury Consulting.
Shortly after, my primary care physician recommended I; turn in my drivers license, file for SSDI and get my finances in order. I was 51 years old with 3 children 10, 12, and 20 years old, and a hard working school teacher wife. Instead we were evaluated at Dr Amen’s clinic over a 3 day exam, prescribed hyperbaric oxygen treatments, Omega 3 fish oils and natural anti oxidants (concentrated blueberry, cranberry and acai berry juices in capsules).
I currently conduct Traumatic Brain Injury Recovery seminars all over the country, and work closely with Dr. Rich Ellenbogen, head of the NFL’s Head, Neck and Spine Injury group (click here to read “Visger Rules”) on rule changes to reduce Traumatic Brain Injuries in football at all levels. I have personally completed 231 Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatments (HBOT) since 2010, and my micro-cognitive memory scores have improved over 15 % (at age 54). I would recommend these non-pharmaceutical treatments to everyone.
