In 2011, Cavin Balaster fell 20 feet from a rooftop water tower scaffolding. His head struck a steel beam on the way down before crashing onto the concrete rooftop below. He was immediately rushed to the hospital and put on life support. While in a coma, an MRI revealed a severe diffuse axonal injury (DAI), which is one of the most devastating types of brain injury. Statistically over 90 percent of patients with this brain injury never regain consciousness, and most of those who do will often remain in a persistent vegetative state. Following the acute stages of his brain injury, a dense brain fog, limited mobility, and numerous other difficulties persisted as he continued to navigate the physical and emotional toll of his new circumstances. At a pivotal moment,he was introduced to functional medicine, which illuminated a different way of looking at recovery. As several treatments, exercises, and therapies were implemented he began to reclaim the mental clarity he had before his injury.
Listen in today as Jimmy talks with Cavin about his amazing story of tragedy to recovery and the steps he took to regain his life and now help others do the same.
