The Brain That Changes Itself

Author: Norman Doidg

…The result is this book, a riveting collection of case histories detailing the astonishing progress of people whose conditions had long been dismissed as hopeless. We see a woman born with half a brain that rewired itself to work as a whole, a woman labeled retarded who cured her deficits with brain exercises and now cures those of others, blind people learning to see, learning disorders cured, IQs raised, aging brains rejuvenated, painful phantom limbs erased, stroke patients recovering their faculties, children with cerebral palsy learning to move more gracefully, entrenched depression and anxiety disappearing, and lifelong character traits altered.

    That’s a clever answer to a tricky question

    Could you explain this a bit more? Or poidrve a link to an explanation. RSD/CRPS cause a cognitive disconnect between the recognition of left and right. I’ve never read that before. I knew about the Phantom Limb Syndrom part, but not about CRPS. I’ve been complacent recently about learning more about CRPS. I’ve had it so long it gets exhausting sometimes reading about the newer discoveries. Anyway, I decided to get back into it and that’s how I found this site on Twitter. Thank you for posting this. I’m going to investigate the websites you mentioned and do some of the strategies you gave once I know a little bit more about it.

      I definitely read it and that’s where my second stage of repair began. I cam across a paragraph that talked about Dr Lorimer Moseley, our very own clinical scientist investigating pain in humans from SA. I googled and realised I’d heard him on Margaret Throsby and then found quite publicly displayed his email. I took this as an invite, offering myself as a study in exchange for some advice, anything! It blew me away that after everything I’d been through and after so many practitioners had seen ‘soula inside and out’, Lorimer read three paragraphs and replied with something like: ‘tell me where you are and i’ll tell you where to go’… that’s how I found The Women’s Physio department.

      But back to the book, it’s so interesting. Our brain can change. I believe it. I just want mine to hurry up a little…
