Hey Doctor Bozworth,
This course has been incredible. Thank you so much for providing all of this instruction. My short term plan is to optimize my own brain & body health and then attempt to help my immediate family members that struggle with obesity, OCD, Bi-polar, ADHD and all types of addiction. My long term goal is to bring this course to the inmates in the prisons in Huntsville Texas. Through my church I have been involved in various clothing drives for inmates leaving the system. There is a huge need up there. Huntsville is one of the largest concentrations of inmates in the country and it's only a 30 minute drive away for me. Maybe that's my mission field.
Here is my final question list: Hopefully you can find the time to answer these through an email at some point:
1. What are your top ten ways (in order of importance) to ...
- optimize my slow wave sleep, hippocampal health, BDNF and morning fasting glucose. (top ten for each)
2. Are there any nootropics that are useful? Ashwagandha, L-Glutamine, etc.
3. What are the best protocols to utilize TMS to improve brain health? Seems very under utilized to me.
One last thing... gotta brag a bit.
My Omega Quant RBC % was 7.4% in January 2020. I retested last month and it has risen to 12.8%! Daily canned mackerel and Omega 3 supplements actually work!
I was very hesitant to take this course, initially, because of the cost. In spite of this hesitancy, I was constantly nudged by myself to enrol. “You need to take this course” had become a repeating mantra in my mind. I did enrol in the 11th hour. I had no idea how I was going to use this new knowledge. I just knew I had to take it. I wanted my last decades on this earth to be the best possible. I did not want my brain to grow old before I was finished my to do list. And I thought my husband could benefit, as well. I could see his brain aging rapidly and I wanted to help him.
Each week when I learned about how and what can be repaired neurologically, another person, I knew, went on my help list. (What if they know what I know?)
During the course, I gave my husband a Muse for Christmas. For decades he believed he was a poor sleeper. He refuted the idea that mediation was beneficial. ‘I’ve tried. I can’t meditate’. In the matter of a few weeks he now has evidence that he does, in fact, sleep well. He is mediating on his own initiative…that in itself was well worth the cost of the course. His health is improving one sleep at a time. (I am also sleeping well for the first time in decades. I am beginning to feel truly rested in the morning. My brain is clearer. My memory is sharper as a result of using the new tools learned throughout the course. I was able to stop taking a prescription that prevented deep sleep! In it’s place I now do specific tasks learned throughout the “Brains: From Trauma to Repair” course!
I leave the course with a wealth of science fact based information that I can pass on to many - family members and dear close friends. For those struggling with poor health be it lack of sleep or addictions of any kind this course is a great investment in your life’s course correction.
I am so very grateful to Dr. Annette Bosworth and her course. Her videos, including peer reviewed sources, are presented in a very purposeful way allowing for the greatest possible level of learning for the student.
I recommend this course to anyone who is wired to help people. The knowledge found in this course is a true gift to the receiver. A healthy brain is key to great performance - to be the best server possible for the body.
There are not enough words to express my gratitude for Dr Boz and her willingness to share so much of her journey, knowledge, and tools with those of us who desperately need them and who know others who do. I have learned so much I did not know through taking this course and the Consistently Keto online course and plan on sharing with my family, church, and anyone else willing to meet and listen to the material. It is well worth the price she offers for the course. Thank you again, Dr Boz and your beautiful family for this service and sacrifice.
This expand my knowledge of addiction. I learned a lot when acquiring my health, life and recovery certifications, and this helped take it to another level. I plan to use this information to heal myself and I will share this with my clients. The information will fit perfectly in my ministry and coaching sessions.
My husband and I both suffer from brain fog, his from Parkinson's, mine from the chronic inflammation of autoimmune disease. Learning options for healing our brains, having tools to improve our brains' performance, has given us both hope! I believe we are never too old to change our brains!
I recommend this course to anyone who even thinks their brain could use some improvement.
I took a chance by enrolling in this Course, not being sure if it would address my husband's issues with Parkinson's. After watching a few of Dr. Boz's YouTubes, he felt he could trust her teaching and agreed to "attend" the Course with me. After only a few weeks, he is solidly on board! We are both practicing the recommended sleep hacks and "correcting" our diets because a correction is more sustainable than a "change!" We've changed our diet too many times before but Dr. Boz's recommendations make SENSE and if something makes sense, we will do it and stick with it. For the first time in 3 years, I believe that his disease can be slowed and yes, even reversed some. We start this New Year with lighter hearts and, soon, with lighter steps.
I initially signed up for this course for myself alone. As I progressed through each module, I was immediately reminded of so many members of my family, work family as well as neighbors in my community that I love. It was if I were drawn to share this new found knowledge with all of the aforementioned. After completing this course, I am committed to begin working on my own addictions and brain repair prior to teaching others. This course is truly amazing and I highly recommend it to anyone struggling with addiction in order to empower yourself to be able to pay it forward to those you love and also the unlovely. Thank you Dr. Boz for your Servant's heart and the countless hours you have invested in us - your students. "May God Bless you exceedingly, abundantly in all that we ask or even think to ask". (Ephesians 3:20-21.
With Great Appreciation and Kindest Regards,

Dr. Boz, thank you so much for thinking outside of the box and empowering all of us to help you change the health of the world. Just this morning, in the second Brains group I am leading, we were talking about how the Brains: Trauma to Repair information should be taught in schools. Can you imagine the lives that would be saved, repaired, or even spared the ruin of drugs, alcohol, carbs, malnutrition, and poor sleep?
My ultimate dream is to collaborate with physicians, teachers, parents, neighbors, leaders, family and friends in my community to get this information on ultimate brain health into the hands of everyone. We all need the knowledge to live our best lives in this beautiful world. If we change the fabric of the communities in which we live, these methods will become the new norm in all of our circles. That is how we will ROCK our Brains and stay Consistently Keto. Let's do this!
This course was amazing! I learned so much about how to take care of my brain and what to do to repair any problems I may have created with my lifestyle. I was fortunate enough to lead a group of 24 other people through this course. We all had so much fun working together every week to figure out the "wrong" answers and often times were very surprised at what we found out. Dr. Boz made this course engaging and fun with the competition and story telling. Now that we have completed the course we are all looking for ways to lead our own families and communities through it.
I found that many persons who should take this course are those who think that it doesn't apply to them. I was in that group. Others who have suffered with Trauma will KNOW that it applies to them. But I found from the very first Module to the last one that both groups have "brains" that need help. It begins with an understanding of how the brain actually cleans itself at night with Slow Wave Sleep (SWS). We need SWS to repair the brain and requires 7 to 8 hours of sleep. The author then moves on to the role of the Hypothalamus to show its role in memory and emotions. She provides much reference material in Bibliographies with convenient links to them. Dr. Bozworth then adds modules that cover the various addictions and their treatment. The author/doctor then culminates a case study that requires collaboration. Combine the previous benefits with the developer's in-depth understanding and humility, I found the course to be an inspiration and important educational experience for the reader.
