Sachi is the content manager and neurofeedback trainer at Diversum Research as well as the lead Neurofeedback Clinician at Neurvana Naturopathic Medicine Clinic in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Before joining the Diversum Research team, she graduated from the University of Calgary with a B.A. in Psychology and has had extensive experience in integrating the science of neuropsychology into advanced neurofeedback and neuromodulation protocols. A life-long learner with a genuine interest in the brain, Sachi has a passion for efficiency and psychological engineering, which compliments Neurvana’s mission to optimize individual potential.

On health, Sachi believes, paraphrasing Jim Carrey, “If you don’t exercise, eat nutritious food, get sunlight, get enough sleep, consume positive material, and surround yourself with support, you aren’t giving yourself a fighting chance.” To practice this mantra while not at Neurvana, Sachi trains at a local circus gym and socializes with long-distance friends in online video games. She also enjoys perfecting cooking techniques and experimenting in the kitchen.

Our motivation for this course

 

Diversum Research’s Clinical Fellowship  was created by a team of healthcare practitioners that observed the critical limitations of conventional approaches of assessing the nervous system. Namely the limited aspects of structural analyses (magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography) in determining function of the brain as well as the limited analysis and applications of functional analyses (EEG, nerve conduction studies/EMG). With neuroscience literature constantly pushing the envelope of what we thought we knew, conventional practices have fallen hopelessly behind in actualizing patient’s experience and identifying underlying causes of mental, emotional, psychological and immunological problems within the nervous system. Modern psychiatry and many conventional medical techniques remain in the dark ages of science, grasping onto magisterial theories such as genetic determinism, biological causation of mental illness and questionnaire-driven diagnoses (eg. DSM-V). The field of epigenetics has disproved genetic determinism in 99.9% of cases, the biological factors of psychiatry have not been found (although there are some that play a role in certain cases; this will be discussed later in Module I), and the DSM has become a bloated encyclopedia failing to describe the constantly changing inner world of humans. We knew we needed something more. Something to help the hundreds of millions of people struggling to cope with their experience, searching for that next magic bullet. We are here to bridge the gap between dogmatic thinking and actualization of cutting-edge scientific literature, allowing you to guarantee your patients achieve healing through identifying root cause and self-regulating.

DIVERSUM’S NEUROIMAGING ASSESSMENT

With over a decade of clinical data, experience and research analysis all analyzed with machine learning, we have created an affordable neuroscience assessment that allows you to quickly identify root causes, triage highly predictable therapeutic options for your patients, and remove the majority of guesswork. Learning and integrating our approach will allow you to amplify predictability, validity, and reproducibility while still allowing for precision, individualized care. However with guesswork removed, it is easy to stick with therapies or adjust treatments with certainty. Additionally, we will show you methods that allow you to assess the objective efficacy of a treatment approach within minutes to weeks, rather than months to years, allowing you to understand the likelihood of positive treatment outcomes. It is an amazing time in human history to be a healthcare practitioner and with our approach you can ascertain positive outcome predictability in >96% of cases. Neuroanalysis approaches also allow you to determine referral partners so you know who will be critical in integrating with to help your patients along their healing journey. The essential elements of a successful neuroanalysis that will allow you to guide your patients back to health include:

    • In-depth medical history
    • Raw EEG analysis with quantitative EEG spectral analysis, sw/sLORETA analysis, and network analysis
    • Event-related potential analysis
    • Heart-rate variability analysis – 1-minute, 5-minute and 24-hour
    • MRI with quantification – volBrain or NeuroQuant
    • Visual Contrast Sensitivity assessment
    • Basic understanding of cranial nerve function and other functional neurology principles
    • Basic and advanced diagnostic laboratory testing interpretation

Reviews/Testimonials

“Corey has been an incredible collaborator and mentor throughout the past year and half that he and I have worked together. He has extensive knowledge in functional medicine, qEEG and neurofeedback that he avidly shares in collaboration with his colleagues. This allows for excellent patient care. He has a fundamental understanding of the human body and the intricate nuances of biochemical pathways, inflammation, and infection that can lead to disease. He is truly a root cause practitioner and goes above and beyond to share his expertise to those willing to learn.”

Dr Alexandra Smith, ND

“Corey, Liz, and Sachi have a deep insight into neurobiology, human physiology and neurological disorders and use current research and physiological understanding to guide their treatment decisions. I have worked with them on countless complex chronic illness cases and their insights and opinion are highly valued in my practice. They constantly work to stay on top of current research and to adjust their treatment protocols accordingly. They are highly effective practitioners and have been instrumental in the success of many of my patients to date.”
