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 120 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.
