Aspen Morrow, BHCC

Brain Health Certified Coach & Baptist See-ER (Seer)

Owner, Aspen Brain Health: Natural NeuroCoaching™

Aspen is a peer, advocate and investigative journalist turned ‘mom on a mission’.  She is the author of the best-selling and award-winning book: Med Free Bipolar. Struggling to help herself and her children recover from neurobiological disorders, she could find few answers from doctors, neurologists, Western or Eastern Medicine. She also had the added challenge of regularly “seeing” into the spiritual realm and having many visions that later came true. Try sorting that out with doctors and Baptist University professors!

After finding the answers for her family in nutrition, brain-type testing, and supernatural healing solutions (like prayer!), she started a passionate career and ministry an author, speaker, and NeuroCoach.  Losing her grandfather to Alzheimer’s only further fueled her research and mission to open her brain clinic.

Utilizing the Dr. Amen Clinics Method and her own Med Free Method™, Aspen coaches in the Treasure Valley, Idaho, and internationally via FaceTime. She also carries her own professional line of NeuroNutritional supplements that target blood flow, oxygen and target “dead spots” in the brain to awaken functioning. Clients have worked with her from all over the world; some even flying to Boise, Idaho to be coached.  She envisions having in-patient facility options for natural mental health, addictions, children’s services, eating disorders, self-harm and memory specialities. (That don’t exclude the possibility of a spiritual component).

Aspen and a collaborative team of professionals work with children, teens, adults and seniors to help them thrive naturally (or with a combination of meds if they so choose).

Main areas of concentration include: brain, heart and gut health, anxiety, attention, focus, energy, memory, mood, school/work/sports performance, sensory, night terrors, self-harm tendencies, racing thoughts, sleep issues, and anyone who just wants an optimized brain. Clients often experience more relief in two appointments than years of other treatments, resulting in focus, coping, better clarity and a renewed mind.

Medication management, counseling and other modalities are outside the scope of her NeuroCoaching practice, but Aspen is happy to have teamed up with a great list of doctors (medical docs, osteopaths and naturopaths friendly to the med free method), chiropractors, neurofeedback specialists, counselors, detox specialists, and brain-scan specialists who can augment the work she does.

Her local office is in Boise, Idaho, or WorldWide via the web.

Mental Health

You are not crazy, just Hangry

Imagine a sweet little puppy: happy, playful, not a care in the world. Now, take his food away for three days, then set a big steak in front of him teasingly, then try to take it from him; he will bite your hand off and has turned MEAN. This is the case in about 80%+* of cases causing mental illness: the brain is just HANGRY. 

When a horse chews on a fence-post it is called “cribbing”, known to farmers as a sign of mineral deficiency or digestive distress. When humans act out, it is the same. Signs of micronutrient mineral deficiencies include: cutting/self-harm tendencies, hair-pulling, skin picking, autistic “stimming”, eating disorders, & most mental health disorders.

The brain requires about 20% of your entire nutritional needs, and just like a baby in the womb, it requires the first 20%! Most people aren’t psychiatric because they aren’t more than 80% depleted nutritionally. We are seeing more and more cases due to our depleted soils, processed food addiction, leaky gut, lack of probiotic  & healthy gut microbes that help assimilate nutrition, and genetic deficiencies that can actually be passed down. (i.e> folic acid and birth defects, potassium deficiency leads to moles & freckles)

I talk about this quite a bit in my book: Med Free Bipolar (Amazon), about Physical Ailments that can cause psychiatric symptoms, and HOW to fix them, step by step, with the med free method™

Here is a list of things that can look psychiatric, or cause people to be diagnosed:
· Hypoglycemia (including subclinical)
· Allergies and Sensitivities to Food, Inhalants, and Other Substances
· Dysbiosis (Overgrowth of unfriendly gut organisms, including Candida)
· Nutrient Deficiency
· Nutrient Overload
· Copper/Zinc Imbalance
· Poor Diet
· Mercury Toxicity
· Other Heavy Metals Toxicity
· Toxins (Carbon Monoxide, Pesticides, Aspartame©, etc.)
· Subclinical Hypothyroidism
· Adrenal Insufficiency
· Reproductive Hormone Imbalance
· Histamine Imbalance
· Pyroluria/ Over-Under Methylation/ MTHFR
· Lack of Exercise
· Lack of Sunlight
· Lack of Exposure to Greenery
· Suppressed Pain
· Musculo-Skeletal Misalignment
· Hearing Disorders
· Visual Disorders
· Sleeping Disorders
· Head Injury
· Sensory Integration Dysfunction
· Dental and Orthodontic Problems
· Parasites/ Urinary Tract Infections/ Antobiotics/ Leaky Gut/ Other microbiome issues
· Psychotropic Drugs, EMF/ELF

So, what if you could reverse some if not all of these issues through simple supplementation?!Some issues may require extensive gut-healing, dietary changes, and customized supplementation, but most can experience relief through a specific group of supplements. Here is a simplified version of my med free method™ that you can do immediately:

  1. Himalayan Pink Salt (2 tsp/day) & Lots of Good, clean, filtered or Alkaline Water!
  2. Empowerplus Q96 Brain Vitamin to feed the whole central nervous system (Backed by 20yrs clinical use, 28 medical studies, 44 researchers including Harvard, and $25 million in independent research. Few meds can top this proof. Nothing else can be substituted for this and work as well!) (Please order at www.medfreechild.com to save $ over Amazon or truehope) Research @ truehope.com/research
  3. Probiotics (QBiotics or Primal Defense) + Digestive Enzymes or Bitters 
  4. Essential Fatty Acids: Coconut Oil (eat it, put on skin), Omegas, Avocados, Grass-fed Butter, Ghee (My fist recommend for omega source is Green Pasture’s Blue Ice Royal Fermented Cod-liver with Butter Oil. It provides vitamin D & Vit K2) If you can’t tolerate it, then QOmega can be purchased with the Q96 and does not burp fish oil)

That’s it! Yes, this plan would run you about $120 per month, but because of this regime, I was able to live a normal life again. Work, get off public assistance, have healthy children and a marriage. I have been med free 13 years now, and a few days to a few weeks without my brain being fed the above nutrients, I return to bat-guano HANGRY. We have helped thousands now fully recover…. so please share this with anyone who might benefit.
