MISSION AND VISION

Introduction

The Brain and Body Foundation Inc. (BBF) is a 501c3 charity organization based in both the United States and Nigeria.

It was established to provide needed nutrients critical to the healthy development of children to parents and caregivers.

The BBF, in partnership with government, international donors and funders, non-governmental organizations, and well-meaning individuals, seeks to provide well-researched, well-proven, and safe modalities that impact health at discounted rates or free of charge to children who would otherwise not have had access to them.

Our primary purpose is to help reduce the physical and emotional burden of these conditions, by using innovative approaches to promote healing, repair, and strengthening of brain cells/tissue.

Our Vision

To be the reference point for information and tools for sustainable healthcare solutions for individuals with brain disorders and life-limiting chronic diseases such as sickle cell disease, cardiovascular diseases, and others.

Our Mission

Using science-based and well-researched solutions we strive to support patients living with brain disorders and other chronic diseases, including sickle cell anemia. in addition to raising awareness on such chronic conditions through various media platforms, we provide the best possible care to every patient at no cost to them through integrated clinical consultations, education and research. We seek effective nutraceuticals that have proven track records in dealing with such chronic diseases and build a bridge between the source of such solutions and those in need of them.

At BBF, we believe that the solutions to many health challenges lie within us, within our physical bodies. By nourishing and strengthening the body, especially in the areas affected, we can help the body heal itself, reverse the damage, and restore health and vigor.

Our Mandate

The Brain and Body Foundation has a four-fold Mandate, captured in the acronym C.A.R.E.

This stands for – Charity. Advocacy. Research. Education.

Under the supervision of the Federal Ministry of Health, the Brain and Body Foundation has been using nutrients and nutraceuticals to address non-communicable diseases in general, especially sickle cell disease, brain disorders, and mental health challenges including strokes, cerebral palsy, autism, and stress-related disorders for over five years… all with remarkable results.

Each Friday, a free clinic is held for economically disadvantaged parents of children with brain disorders and sickle cell disease. Consultations and medications are given free of charge.

As part of their, the BBF is constantly seeking safer, more cost-effective approaches to many of the health challenges affecting Nigerians. The foundation was recently given the approval to carry out a one-year research project to determine the effect of vitamin D3 and other nutraceuticals on the quality of life of children with sickle cell disease. The project is yet to commence.

WHAT WE DO

The Brain and Body Foundation was established to provide science-based and well-researched solutions to many of the health problems of Nigerians – most importantly, solutions that can be applied in remote rural as well as urban areas – without fear of overdose, toxicity, or harm to the patient.

We are a duly registered not-for-profit organization established to address the high prevalence of cardiovascular disease, mental health, and neurological disorders among Nigerians by providing free consultations, distribution of brain health-promoting nutraceuticals, physical therapy, and psychotherapy, education of the general public, and training of healthcare professionals.

Our clients are mainly children aged six months to eighteen years. We see about 50 patients each month, but this number continues to increase as more and more people get informed of our work.

In the past, patients came to BBF mainly from hospital referrals but as more and more positive results have been observed, parents have referred others. This has resulted in an influx of patients whose parents simply cannot afford their care.

All our projects are driven by the following objectives:

  1. To study and find the safest, most cost-effective methods for dealing with chronic diseases.

  2. To provide relief for medically fragile children – those suffering from genetic disorders (like sickle cell disease) and the tragic consequences of brain damage or mal-development in hospitals and communities free of charge or at a discounted cost, beginning in Abuja, Nigeria, and extending to other African countries.

  3. To raise public awareness about the reality and causes of brain disorders, the burden they impose on society, and the evidence-based solutions available, in order to encourage government and private institutions to join the campaign to promote brain health nationwide.

  4. To develop simple but effective protocols which other practitioners can easily implement.

MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING WITH FEDERAL MINISTRY OF HEALTH

MIN OF HEALTH LOGO

The Nigerian Federal Ministry of Health has authorized the Brain and Body Foundation to address the huge problem of Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) through education, nutraceuticals, therapy, supplements, and awareness generation.

As we have carried out this mandate, we have witnessed tremendous results and improvements in the lives of our beneficiaries. Part of our immediate plan is to conduct an initial six-month-long research to demonstrate that strengthening the immune system (using acemannan, an immune system optimizer) can go a long way towards improving their quality of life.
