HMR # 65 Mindfulness and Health, Part 3

Dr Zieve continues his conversation with Dr Charles Gant, an MD, naturopath and integrative physician, about the four-part-brain, letting go of pain and how mindfulness practices can reduce stress and provide benefits for all sorts of health challenges, from cancer to addiction.

Dr. Charles Gant has practiced Integrative, Bomplementary/Alternative and Functional Medicine for over three decades, and teaches mindfulness-based meditation, incorporating Gestalt, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, Transpersonal and other mindfulness-based psychotherapies into his medical practice. His doctoral research in the 1980s predicted that mindfulness-based therapies should evoke consistent neurophysiological changes in brain function (especially frontal lobes), which should be measurable with brain neuroimagery, and this has essentially been proven in the last decade in functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Positron Emission Tomography research. Dr. Gant is the Director of Integrative Medicine of the neuroimagery group, Brain Enhancement Solutions and Technologies Inc. (brainenhancement.net ), which applies quantum EEG neuroimagery to diagnose and treat brain disorders and clarify the effects of brain nutritional restoration, detoxification and neurotransmitter restoration. He is also medical director and CMO of Synaptic Connections (synapticconnections.org ), a research-focused, nonprofit neuroimagery group studying the effects of neurofeedback on brain disorders and how nutrition, detoxification and neurotransmitter balancing enhance brain function and improve outcomes for various neuropsychiatric disorders. He has written several books for general readers, including "End Your Addiction Now". Read more at charlesgantmd.com.
