Traumatic Brain Injury, Post Traumatic-Stress, Depression, Anxiety, and Autism
“I’ve made significant progress in cognitive ability, stress tolerance, and mental clarity. I have been able to handle decisions much better and think clearer. I have been able to significantly decrease conflict w/ my family and actually lead much better.” – 60-year old male with TBI, Feb 2020
“I’m back! My TBI turned me into someone I barely recognized. I was depressed, mean, and short-tempered. I pushed through life filled with frustration and a deep sense of sadness that this was it. I just had to keep pushing through life with an overwhelming tiredness. I’m so glad I was wrong. I think my direct reports and family are even more thankful. This treatment changed everything, and I am forever thankful.” – 41-year old male with TBI, Executive, Nov 2017
“In the ensuing months after the concussion I just wasn’t myself… My academics began to suffer as well. I didn’t feel right. My EEG showed me that something had physically changed with how my brain functioned. After three days of treatment, I felt substantially better. After two weeks, I felt like I did before my injury. MeRT was life changing.” – 21-year old female with TBI, Collegiate Soccer Player, Jan 2019
“I received a serious head injury, fractured two spinal vertebrae and suffered a traumatic disc herniation requiring a surgical correction after a fall. I spent two years on narcotic pain medication because of my injuries and in June of 2013 I had to voluntarily enroll myself into a Substance Abuse rehabilitation program because I had grown dependent on opiate pain medications.
Of all my injuries by far the worst were the ones you could not see. I had degraded to the point of not being able to leave my home because of panic attacks and severe anxiety. I could not hide from this feeling, and no mediation could numb it. I told my doctor at one point I couldn’t kill myself because I have a family with young children that I am responsible for. I was living in despair and physical pain every day without reprieve, that is until I was able to get treatment.
I underwent neural restorative therapy for two months with total symptom resolution. I can function again at work, and can spend much needed time with my family. I have my sense of well-being back and a clarity of thought I haven’t had in many years.”
“I was not diagnosed with TBI until 2011. I was so bad off I was no longer able to take care of my children by myself for any extended period of time. My wife had to run the entire house including myself, our 2-year-old, 5-year-old and two dogs. I believe the best way to put into perspective how bad off my health was is to show the medical treatment I received between only the fall of 2011 and now.
Constant symptoms were: Daily headaches (between 6-8/10 on pain scale), severe neck pain, severe light sensitivity, tension headaches that radiated through my jaw, nausea, acid reflux, left leg siatic nerve, excessive sweating even without physical exertion, poor/no sleep, exhaustion, angry outbursts, severe anxiety, severe depression, poor concentration and memory loss.
I was seen by 46 different doctors to include: Neurologists (7), Psychologists (5), Social workers (4), Endocrinologists (4), Internal Medicine (2), Gastrologists (1), Pain Management (4), Spine (1), Ortho (3), Chiropractor (3), Physical Therapist specialists (3), Vestibular (2), Ophthalmologist (3), Audiologists (2), Ear Nose and Throat (1), Physical Medicine and Rehab (1)
I was instructed to try 29 different treatments: Physical Therapy, massage, acupuncture, float tanks/sensory deprivation tanks, yoga, alpha stim, TENS unit, scraping, cupping, traction, meditation, guided imagery, bio-feedback, aroma/oil therapy, chiropractor, reiki, therapeutic touch, herbal supplements, ketogenic diet, paleo diet, gluten free diet, art/music therapy, mindfulness therapy, contrast baths, getting a minimum of 30 minutes of sunlight per day, drinking water with loads of electrolytes, stellate ganglion block (twice), nerve blocks C-2 thru C-5 and Botox.
I was also prescribed over 40 different medications during this time: Wellbutrin, Lexapro, L-methyl folate, Nuvigil, Fortesta, Testosterone Enanthate, Pindolol, Prazosin, Lunesta, Ambien, DHEA, D3, numerous Multi-Vitamins, fish oil, Imitrex injections and pills, Maxalt, Zomig, Relpax, Motrin, Naproxen, Tramadol, Nubaine, Amerge, Treximet, Valium, Xanax, Gabapentin, Reglan, Fiorcet, Excedrin, Migranal, Topamax, Paxil, Zoloft, Prozac, Concerta, Zofran, Magnesium/Riboflavin combo, Nexium, Marinol, Prilosec, Percocet, Vicodin, Steroid tapers (prednisone), Celebrex and Mobic.
None of these doctors, treatments or medications were effective in reducing any of my symptoms for more than a couple weeks of time. By the summer of 2016 I was addicted to Narcotics, diagnosed with numerous orthopedic issues, severe depression, severe anxiety, and moderate PTSD.
Everything changed when I started treatment. Within two weeks I was sleeping better. I was off all 12 of my meds that I was on when I started treatment, and I was starting to enjoy life again. After the first month I was socializing with people again, I was able to work out for the first time in years, and I started to help my wife with the bills and our budget.
As I write this, I just completed my sixth week of treatment. A conservative estimate is that I have had a 60 – 70% reduction of the symptoms I listed above and have a whole new lease on life. I can focus. I feel good about myself. I feel confident. I laugh again. Most importantly, I can feel the love for and from my family again.
I have never met a group of people who truly are solely focused on helping people feel human again. Spend a day here and you will see a miracle. The individual time and attention given to any and every patient is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. It really shows how much each employee truly cares about EVERY patient that comes through the door.
We are dropping a line to thank you Dr. Miller, Naomi, and Carlos for your help last summer with Immanuel. We are RVing this weekend and marveling at how well Immanuel now socializes with other children at the campsite. We were here last year around the same time and he needed constant play supervision because he kept arguing & trying to control play. This weekend he’s able to go along with what others are playing.
He is also at a private school with no special ed teacher to support him, and he is able to succeed without the extra support. It’s a small classroom, but last year it would have been impossible. Immanuel has made such strides socially, with non verbal cues, being flexible, and regulating his frustrations.
His occupational therapist has been amazed, as well. She evaluated him before he started treatment with you but started therapy AFTER we returned from Texas. She says that he has been crushing the prescribed program— he scored significantly above expectations at the latest eval. and he’s is speeding through the stages. We are thrilled by Immanuel’s progress and the fact that he can play with other kids—he’s had numerous play dates at our house and they’ve gone well. This touches our hearts more than anything—that he has friends now.
Again, thank you for making this treatment available and for your guiding us through the process. We looked forward to the summer.” – David and Debbie J.
Our Story – Testimony of a Mother of a Child with Autism.
“We have a beautiful daughter, Raquel and she was diagnosed with severe autism at the young age of 1 ½ years. Rachel did not follow directions, she did not look into my eyes, she did not want to be touched, she did not speak, she did not listen or respond to her name, she did not distinguish me as her mother, and I could clearly feel she was very anxious all the time.
Desperate, and with the intention of doing my best to guarantee a better quality of life for my daughter, for 4 years I investigated and took all available routes to try to help her overcome her condition. I took her to different types of therapy (phonoaudiology, occupational, behavioral, and sensory integration), in addition to a diet regime free of casein and gluten. All these efforts were important and helped my daughter have small signs of improvement, but Raquel was far from making any significant progress – doctors still gave her the same severe diagnosis.
It was not until the fourth year of this endless quest that we finally came up with something that would change our lives, and the life of our daughter forever. When it seemed that all alternatives were exhausted, Dr. Jeff Bradstreet told me about a new therapy in Newport Beach, California, called MeRT, which consisted of repetitive brain stimulation through magnetic waves. There was already strong empirical evidence that they help to regulate brain functioning quickly, safely, effectively and permanently.
Dr. Bradstreet explained that there were 20% of people who, for some unknown reason, did not respond to treatment, but an 80% chance of improvement was definitely an opportunity that I was not willing to let go, especially if it had to do with the well-being of my girl.
I traveled to California and they explained what the treatment consisted of. Rachel was going to do an EEG (Electroencephalogram) to determine exactly what was happening in her brain so that they could design a treatment tailored to her needs.
The study confirmed that the front of her brain did not work properly so Rachel did not process the information like the other children. With the clearest panorama, and high optimism, I agreed to start treatment immediately. I could not wait to start.
On the first day of therapy I thought my daughter wouldn’t cooperate. To my surprise she seemed to enjoy the procedure. Obviously at the end of the day I saw no changes in her behavior, but I did not expect to see results so fast. The story takes a really unexpected turn for all of us at the end of the second day of therapy.
We went back to the house of some relatives, where we were spending the night, and Raquel approached me, with a glass between her little hands asking me to give her some “Juz”. There are no words that can express the emotions that I felt at that moment. All the people who know me ask me if I shed tears of joy in that moment. It was the first time I could say that I had heard the voice of my 4 year old daughter. Incredibly this was not all. A few minutes later my daughter went out to the garden of the house, approached a lemon tree, took one and brought it to her face to smell it. For a little girl who practically lived in the corner of the room, interacting with her shadow, this was a revelation, to the point that a few moments later, when her sister took the lemon from her hands, Raquel demanded loudly “My, Lemon?” Only two days of therapy had passed and we suddenly had what seemed, for the first time in her short life, a normal child.
At the end of the second week of treatment, we arrived at the Clinic excited and very eager to share with the medical staff the great advances that we had seen after the second therapy. The Director of Center approached me and asked me to accompany him to the game room where Raquel was. I will never forget that moment. He said, “Look at your daughter.” Raquel was there, sitting by a window. She was pointing to the passing cars and asking out loud: “Blue Car?”, “Green Car?”, also an airplane “Blue Plane with White?”
Most incredible of all was that not only had she improved her ability to communicate, but her emotional projection also took a 180-degree turn. My daughter now asked me to pick her up and carry her in my arms. She hugged me for the first time voluntarily and repeatedly for more than 15 minutes. Aside from improving in language, she also improved her emotional connection. They were the most beautiful 15 minutes of my life. My daughter recognized me and expressed it openly and freely for the first time.
Since that day she did not let me go, everything she wanted to do, was with me. When I realized these great changes I began to carry out other activities with my daughter. What I can not forget to mention is that Raquel’s anxiety did not allow us to take her anywhere. When we went to a mall, the screams were so loud that a man even asked if she needed an ambulance. To take her to the U.S. was horrible too, because customs officers could not understand how this girl could not calm down with her mother. After 3 weeks of therapy Raquel even tolerated going to Disney. That frightful part of our lives was over. Now I was free to walk with my daughter and she was for the first time able to enjoy the rides. I meditated about why God sent this miracle to me. I came to the conclusion that if Raquel did so well, it had to be for something greater than us. At the end of the Treatment and seeing the progress, I decided to meet with the key people of the company and asked them to send a MeRT machine to Panama. When I got to the office I sat down with them and explained that I would not be able to live without the machine that brought me so many miracles. It took a year, but we finally managed to open the doors of Brain Treatment Center in Panama, and provide thousands of people with a treatment that could be the change they sought in their lives, closer, more accessible and comfortable. – Raquel’s Mother *

Contact our New Patient Coordinator for More Information
When many patients come to see us, they have lost hope as they don’t see any light at the end of the tunnel. It’s rewarding as a practitioner to be able to help so many people realize a much better “normal” and a greatly improved quality of life.
If you have questions or would like to discuss our Treatment Protocols, we offer a Free Consultation by phone. Our New Patient Coordinator will take the time to listen and explain. She is able to answer most questions and discuss our protocols, scheduling, fees and other information. She is happy to assist you in any way she can.
Please call us to get more information about how our clinic and Dr. Miller may be able to help you with your health goals and to schedule an an initial screening to see if MeRT may be an option.
Unfortunately, we do not accept insurance, nor file it on your behalf. However, we can provide you with CPT codes and a billing breakdown that you may submit to your insurance for possible reimbursement for conditions that have been FDA-approved such as Major Depressive Disorder and OCD. On occasion, individuals have been successful in receiving reimbursement for EEGs and clinical evaluations, and possibly other elements for treatment, depending on the individual’s coverage. It has been our experience that Medicare does not reimburse any of the treatment costs.
For conditions other than Major Depressive Disorder and OCD, because treatment is considered “off label,” insurance rarely reimburses any of the costs associated with treatment.
Starting as a New Patient
When you start as a new patient at the Brain Treatment Center Dallas, you will initially need two appointments, approximately two days apart. Both appointments will be about an hour in length. These appointments will be used to determine if Dr. Miller feels you can truly benefit from the MeRTSM [Magnetic e-Resonance Treatment] Program and, if so, to develop a tailored treatment plan based on your test results. Once you have done the testing and Consultation, you are not obliged to begin treatment. This is something that you will determine once you have seen your test results and consulted with Dr. Miller.
At the first appointment, we will go over your reasons for seeking help, your medical history, your health goals, and all of your symptoms. You will then begin initial testing, which will involve an EEG and an EKG. These are both completely painless and easy and are done right in our office. Your information and test results are then sent over to our scientific and clinical teams, who will carefully analyze the results and determine current state and functioning of the brain together with Dr. Miller.
We use a patented, scientific approach with the neurophysiological data gathered through testing to then develop a highly customized treatment plan that is aimed at encouraging healthy brain communication and function.
At your second appointment, you will meet with Dr. Miller for a Consultation. He will discuss your test results and whether or not he and our scientific team feel that results may be achieved for you through our treatment protocol. This appointment will also serve to answer any additional questions you may have. After that second appointment, Dr. Miller will lay out your individualized treatment plan and the protocols to be followed for best results. At that point you may discuss fees, length of treatment and schedules, and then decide whether to go forward and schedule your treatment.
