What’s Functional Neurology
A Welcome Message to Brain-Based Neurological Treatments back to TOP
Welcome to drjaudy.com. Today you have entered into 21st century breakthroughs and advancements that have taken contemporary healthcare beyond the leading edge.
Nobody wants to live in pain—yet millions do, every day of their lives. Dr. Gilbert Jaudy DC, FACFN, FABVR, CCST has dedicated his career to going beyond treatments that mask or temporarily treat pain, and into the truth and understanding of every aspect of the function of human neurology and the core problem where it begins in the brain. Studies in Brain-Based Neurology marks the latest in specific diagnosis and treatments of pain and addresses the underlying cause involving pathways that send signals to our brain.
In easy to understand language Dr. Jaudy will explain why it is that we experience pain and how this state of the art science puts the brain back in charge of controlling the runway impulses of the brainstem malfunctioning which may contribute to a host of chronic conditions including fibromyalgia, dizziness, migraine headaches, chronic fatigue, to unexplained back and neck pain. Just hoping that it will go away, or becoming addicted to painkillers are not suitable answers, and will only make the problem worse.
Is there a better alternative? Yes, and it comes from targeting the pain where it begins; in your brain. Through Functional Neurology, or the function of neurology, the body (nervous system) is enabled to return back to its normal function, as it was originally designed to work, non-invasively and without chemicals to bring patients relief that they have not been able to find elsewhere. Dr. Jaudy uses both his understanding of the human brain, the relationship between brain chemicals and hormones, and the intricate neurological circuitry upon which our chemical balance and organ function are dependent. Dr. Jaudy leaves no stone unturned in determining the exact cause of your health condition.
You are invited to proceed to read about the latest breakthroughs and how this new science—not in the distant future but today—is already helping people to live more vibrant, fuller, and satisfying lives, free of chronic pain for the first time in years. It is a healthcare revolution taking place before our eyes.
Background: back to TOP
It is important to note the important shift in healthcare when on July 17, 1990 President George Bush on and congress signed into effect Proclamation 6152, a presidential declaration designating the 1990’s to be the “Decade of The Brain.” That decade gave birth to the science and field of Functional Neurology. Over one and a half billion dollars was invested into active brain research. Now in 2011 we are reaping the benefits of that investment and research.
Almost all that science currently understands about the brain has come out in the past 20 years. Only in the last two decades has there been a surge of active brain research and clinical applications to understand the actual mechanisms of suffering and pain. Brain research exploded to understand the human brain and to develop treatments to restore lost function.
This work on brain research has been pioneered by and consists of world-class researchers and scientists. It has been the subject of the Emmy Award winning PBS documentary, “Waking up the Brain—Amazing Adjustments,” as well as numerous Discovery Channel documentaries.
This explosion of brain research and the latest scientific discoveries are changing our understanding of how the brain interacts with the rest of the body.
What is it that has been discovered? A very large majority of the chronic problems that people suffer with are really a result of problems with the brain and the body being able to communicate the way they were designed to. This has had an ENORMOUS impact for people suffering with chronic conditions. This led to HUGE breakthrough treatments for patients that have had conditions that until now, they have been told they would have to “live with” and this is where functional neurology was born.
Accordingly new treatments in Functional Neurology are changing the way the medical community views chronic pain and how it should be treated.
An introduction with excerpts taken from Dr. Jaudy’s soon to be released book, “Why Did My Body Go Wrong?”
But this isn’t just a book about how well our treatments work. We want you to understand how we do what we do, and we want you to know why it will help you. It’s not possible for us to tell you everything you need to know in this one book, so we have not written this book to be the end of the learning process. This book is only the beginning.
If you were to try to track down the literature of functional neurology on your own, you would face a daunting task. The sheer volume of technical studies on our science multiples exponentially year after year.
The discipline of Functional Neurology is not “alternative.” It is a contemporary science that ties into the mainstream of medical and pharmaceutical science, but it also bridges the gap between outdated an understanding and now of what doctors can do through non-invasive and non-pharmaceutical Brain-Based treatments. It is the new paradigm…the missing link in healthcare.
While we present the most up-to-date information to explain the wonderful results we get in our clinic, the simple fact is… Functional Neurology is a complex science. That’s why we are sharing the fundamentals of functional neurology here in a way that all our readers can understand the rational basis of treatment for their particular cases.
The latest discoveries in Functional Neurology point to intricate interconnections of brain cells and their ultimate control of the human body. These discoveries have revealed the missing link in healthcare and set new breakthroughs for modern neuroscience.
This important relationship between the brain and the human systems has changes the way the medical community now views chronic pain and how it should be treated. This new science and approach has been successful in treating conditions that have been resistant to conventional treatments.
The fundamental concepts of Functional Neurology are not only textbook written (by their very nature rapidly changing), but is clinic-driven and clinically proven … .based not only on state of the art research, BUT RESULTS.
This is “The book” you will need to understand the basics, of why the body goes wrong or why your body failed, why it is that you HAVE the problem. This is what EVERY patient needs to know to regain control of his/her health. Once you know the truth you will never look view disease and sickness at the same way again as this knowledge that will change your life forever. Ready…Here we go!

Brain-Based Neurology–Answers Long Sought For
With a practice built on referrals what you are going to find are amazing patient success stories based on CONSISTENT results.
If you are one of the millions of sufferers of chronic pain, metabolic, or neurological disorders you are not alone. You may not understand how your symptoms hit or where they came from. You wonder “why did my body go wrong?” You feel overwhelmed with symptoms and doctor’s visits and have become labeled with some disorder, symptom, or disease.
Here’s a partial list:
Fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, chronic back and neck pain, restless leg syndrome, migraines, difficulty breathing, hormone imbalance, memory problems, insomnia, peripheral neuropathy, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, depression, anxiety, various neurological disorders including dizziness and vertigo.
You may be on several medications, or are chasing symptoms with no end. If a solution is not found, you may be labeled with depression, or told that it is “all in your head.” This does not have to be the case.
Our practice is based on the successful treatment of the most severe neurological and chronic conditions—ones that have proven resistant to years of conventional treatment.
Our center has had great success with those that have been told they would “have live with it”… those individuals who suffered for so long, they believed there would never be relief.
As it has been until now, our healthcare system is symptom driven and focused on disease management or the management of symptoms. The physiology that led to the disease or chronic condition is largely ignored and the underlying process is rarely, if ever addressed.
The new paradigm and contemporary approach in the healthcare field of Functional Neurology does not address symptom management so much as to de-root the cause of symptoms in order to re-establish function.
