Did you know that long-term exposure to chemicals, such as those used in farming, industry, etc can changed the structure of your brain. Changes can be measured through a SPECT scan (SPECT looks at blood flow). The scan image below demonstrates Scalloping / Overall Decreased Perfusion: Toxicity. This pattern shows overall low activity and blood flow, which look like waves or scallops on a surface SPECT scan.

This pattern is most commonly seen with:
- Drug or alcohol abuse
- Chemotherapy or radiation exposure
- Environmental toxins, such as mold
- Heavy metal exposure
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
- Anoxia (lack of oxygen for several minutes, e.g., from a heart attack or near drowning)
- Infections, such as Lyme disease or herpes
- HypothyroidismSevere anemia
Changes in blood flow to certain areas of the brain can manifest in abnormal behavioural problems.
I can help you understand your abnormal behaviour and help you implement appropriate coping strategies.
