Dr. Titus Chiu

Dr. Chiu is a bestselling author, speaker, and Functional Neurologist on a mission to transform the face of healthcare for the 1 billion people around the world suffering from brain and mental disorders.
Dr. Chiu is the co-founder and clinical director of KOBA family wellness, a Functional Medicine center located in Berkeley, California that specializes in helping people struggling with post-concussion syndrome, early Alzheimer’s and other chronic neurological conditions get well and stay well.
He is the bestselling author of BrainSAVE! The 6-Week Plan to Heal Your Brain from Concussions, Brain Injuries & Trauma, that was just released on amazon.

But before he was a doctor and able to help others, Dr. Chiu struggled
with many vague health issues himself: mild depression, lack of motivation,
low energy, brain fog and was constantly getting sick. The breaking point
was after he got into a horrible car accident that nearly cost him his life.
Although he survived, he suffered a concussion, was left in chronic pain
and unable to do all the things that he loved. He tried everything–
conventional medicine, physical therapy, painkillers but nothing worked. It
wasn’t until he discovered natural medicine– and addressed the root cause
for all his symptoms– that he finally began to heal. And one of the darkest
times in his life turned out to be a blessing in disguise and led him to his
calling.
