Fred Dryer, famed Los Angeles Rams defensive end and television star of the show Hunter, was part of our NFL study.
Recently, Dr. Kraus received this letter from Fred. With his permission, we are reprinting it here.
Dear Dr. Kraus
As we have discussed over the last few months my overall feeling of clarity and confidence is much improved. With the supplements and certainly with the neurofeedback sessions themselves I have replaced a part of me that over time had slowly slipped away. It is very odd to describe the feeling but it is while going through the program, I noticed mental energy and “speed” of thought and cognition that I “recognized” I had lost!
Playing a contact sport for so many years did so much accumulative damage it actually mesmerized me into not noticing the slow progression of brain function loss. It was only when I began to “feed” my brain with the supplements and at the same time go through the neurofeedback sessions that I began to notice just how far my brain function had slipped. I wish I had knowledge of this science/technology while I was playing professional football, it would have helped prevent all of what had been lost over the years.
Over the last several months I have told many ex-players about my experiences [at the Amen Clinics] with you and Dr. Amen and that I felt so strongly about my results that the NFL should test players before and after the season to really see the truth of what damage is being done and then throughout the season address these truths. I also know that injuries are a direct result of a weakened brain. It is a gift to have found the Amen Clinics and even more of a gift to have found a part of myself that had been lost for so long.
Thank you so very much Dr. Kraus.
