Here are some of the stories from our Patients about MeRT
The following testimonies show some of the incredible results people are getting from MeRT treatment at the Brain Treatment Center.
It was a great experience with a very friendly and professional staff! When we first brought our child to the clinic, we expected some progress with her speech skills, but we ended up getting results in other unexpected areas. The first change we saw with our daughter was that she started to make eye contact. Then, she started to be more aware of her surroundings. Second, she stopped stimming and that was the biggest change for her. Third, but not least, she started to socialize and play with other children!”

“I have been a patient of the Brain Treatment Center for over 6 years. First in Newport Beach, California, and then in Dallas, Texas. I have Parkinson’s and have greatly benefited from the treatment, allowing me to have a relatively normal lifestyle.
Dr. Miller and Senior Tech Erika Shelby are wonderful. This is a miracle treatment!”

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.”

I received MeRT treatment from Dr. Miller back in 2021. It was life-changing! I have struggled with CPTSD for many years. After treatment, I was able to get off of my medication and have been thriving. Highly recommend anyone struggling with PTSD, depression, and/or anxiety to look into this treatment. It is worth the time and money to get back to your old self. Dr Miller truly saved my life by treating me and I can’t thank him enough!”

We are glad we choose BTC Dallas over other BTC centers. BTC Dallas is excellent because of the people there. From Leader & Specialist Dr. Miller to FrontDesk warrior Mrs. Jenny, from always on her toes Jenae to cheerful Julie, Erica & Jen, everybody didn’t leave a moment to make us feel comfortable. We were sad traveling back to Canada as BTC Dallas felt like home to us! We still remember that everybody at both ends had tears in their eyes on the last day.
At last, we want to say that you guys have earned our respect, and we are grateful for everything. Dr. Miller, thank you for changing our life!”
We have been trying to find time between our crazy schedules to write this message because every word we will register here will come from our hearts filled with a lot of respect and gratitude for each one of you there.
Not so long ago, we made one of our most important and courageous decisions to take not-so-common MeRT treatment for our daughter Iskra, which required intensive travel, relocation to another country for two months and a substantial financial commitment. We are glad we took this step in our lives and went through 6 weeks of treatment which has changed Iskra’s and our life. She is very much attached to her father and her grandparents.
She adapts to a new schedule very quickly, which was the most challenging thing in the past. Her attention span towards tasks has increased. She is not a grumpy child anymore. She sleeps like a log. No more waking up in the middle of the night and crying hysterically. She has been listening and following our commands. She communicates when she needs help and tells us what she wants. She responds without a second delay to our commands. Yes, we did sit in a restaurant as a family and had lunch together.
We are dropping a line to thank you 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. He is also at a private school and he is able to succeed without the extra support. His occupational therapist has been amazed, as well. She evaluated him before he started treatment with you but started therapy AFTER. She says that he has been crushing the prescribed program— he scored significantly above expectations at the latest eval, and he is speeding through the stages. We are thrilled by Immanuel’s progress. It touches our hearts more than anything—that he has friends now. Thank you for making this treatment available and for your guiding us through the process.

“After trying various treatments and conducting thorough research, we decided to travel from our home in Illinois to the Brain Treatment Center in Dallas. It was the BEST decision we could have made for our six-year-old son who has severe apraxia and is on the spectrum. After six weeks of MeRT treatment, our son said his name for the first time! He has been more flexible with his daily schedule, OCD tendencies have lessened tremendously, and he does not become as anxious as he had previously experienced in new places and surroundings. We cannot thank Dr. Miller and his staff enough for the kindness, care, and genuine concern they have shown (and continue to show) our son and our family. They are always available for questions, concerns, and they truly support all patients and their families. For our family, MeRT and the Brain Treatment Center has been a journey worth the endeavor!”

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.

Before discovering the Brain Treatment Center, I struggled for years with many post-concussive issues that resulted from a TBI. I tried therapy programs and different medications, but nothing touched the issues I continued to face. I was not in a good way. The slightest of stressors would cause me to spiral into a brain fog that affected my vision, my speech, and my mood. I couldn’t read and understand words on paper for more than a paragraph. I couldn’t articulate myself properly a lot of the time. Irritability came quickly, followed by frustration and anger about my situation. I accepted all of this as my new normal. I was stuck in an endless circle of symptoms: being just OK, getting stressed about something, not being able to think clearly or articulate myself, unable to make decisions, getting angry and snappy, getting the sad PPMs (poor pitiful me), accepting this as my new normal….rinse and repeat. Encouraged by my husband to seek a second opinion from a new neurologist, I was pointed toward Dr. Miller at the brain treatment center in Dallas where I underwent six weeks of treatment. I can say with absolute certainty that it has changed my life for the better. I no longer have brain spirals at the slightest hint of stress. I can think and speak clearly through different situations. After seven years, I can finally read a book again! I can do more exercises that would previously cause my brain to shut down. I am a better and more patient mother and wife (although I am still a rubbish housekeeper). If you or someone you know is struggling with any of the issues that I struggled with, I encourage you to seek out help at the Brain Treatment Center. I wish I would have found it sooner.

As I am still in treatment and can’t speak to the final results yet, I want to direct my comments to Dr. Miller and his staff. They are all amazing! He is smart and works hard to help you understand the complex issues of the brain and how it relates to how we function. Katie is the best at working to make the appointments fit your schedule, and the two technicians are wonderful – so professional and friendly as well. It is such a positive environment, creating great hope! I recommend it wholeheartedly!”
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.”

I’d just always ‘outworked’ it. After the last concussion, that wasn’t an option, even though I had previously walked off a dozen concussions. It’s vital to know that not all TBIs result in massive concussions, but they all add to the erosion of the mind and self, if untreated.
“For now, I want to ring the bell for Spencer and Fred and the whole crew at Brain Treatment Center Newport Beach. Through EEG, MeRT, and some subtle sleep and attention shifts, I’ve had a radical, nourishing, strengthening, and dare I say, ‘healing,’ that has brought me to see life through a filter I’ve never known was available.

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 in 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 medication 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 [MeRT] 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.”
After suffering from debilitating migraines every day for two years, Dr. Miller and his team came through with amazing results!!! Super friendly service and relaxing atmosphere.”
46 Doctors, 29 Treatments, 40 Medications, and Nothing Helped… Until MeRT
I was not diagnosed with TBI until 2011. I was so bad off that 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 the pain scale), severe neck pain, severe light sensitivity, tension headaches that radiated through my jaw, nausea, acid reflux, left leg sciatic 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 including 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, biofeedback, 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, Fioricet, 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.
After Starting MeRT
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 and I feel good about myself. I feel confident and I laugh again. And 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.”
