FOLEY, Alabama — He’s a medical trailblazer who walks step by step with each of his patients on their personal “path to wellness.” And according to Dr. J. Douglas Brown, that’s exactly the way healthcare professionals should treat their patients now and into the future.
“You have to be willing to take the time to look at everything going on inside the patient’s body in order to find out exactly what’s wrong; then you can start to fix everything all at the same time,” said Brown, owner of Mind Performance Center in Foley.
“Educating patients about proper diet and exercise plus getting right there in trenches with them to help guide them through the wellness process is the absolutely the best way to practice good medicine,” Brown said.
For more than 30 years, Brown has practiced medicine in Birmingham, Fairhope and Foley. But he is perhaps best known across the United States and abroad for his current cutting-edge work treating patients with depression and dementia.
Specifically for dementia, Brown is one of a only a few neurologists using drug-free non-invasive Brain Pathway Activation Therapy; along with Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation and The Bredesen’s Essential Science-Based Nutritional Program.
“This treatment program really does get results of reversing the symptoms of dementia and even getting some patients get almost entire back to normal,” Brown said.
“Everyday people are dying from Alzheimer’s when they done have too. We’ve known about Brain Pathway Activation Therapy for years now and it works if patients and doctors are willing to put in the work necessary for it to be successful,” Brown said.
Brown added that his future plans are to train other doctors to use the same unique depression and dementia treatment programs that he uses; and to open additional offices in Birmingham and Mobile.
Currently, Brown has teamed up with nutritionists Priscilla Condon and Catherine Cubbage at Path to Wellness LLC, 240 W. Laurel Ave., Foley, in order to offer their combined wellness health services to patients in one office facility.
