May 25

Dr. Kabran Chapek is a staff physician at the Amen Clinics and the author of CONCUSSION RESCUE: A Comprehensive Program to Heal Traumatic Brain Injury (Kensington Publishing / January 2020).

A graduate of Bastyr University, he is an expert in the use of functional and integrative treatments, and has additional training in the assessment and utilization of hormones to treat traumatic brain injuries in combination with SPECT imaging and the Amen Method.

His areas of focus include the assessment and treatment of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs), Alzheimer’s and dementia, PTSD, and anxiety disorders. Dr. Chapek is the founding president of the Psychiatric Association of Naturopathic Physicians, an affiliate group of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians.

In his groundbreaking book, CONCUSSION RESCUE, Dr. Kabran Chapek presents the programs and protocols he uses at the Amen Clinics to put patients on a pathway to healing from traumatic brain injury.

He provides clear and concise instructions on recognizing the symptoms of mild to severe TBI, as well as healing strategies from the cutting edge of brain science – immediate and comprehensive evaluations, assessing hormone imbalances, correcting structural integrity, brain training, sleep, exercise, and more.
