The Miracles of MeRT Treatment for Autism Spectrum Disorder
I’m so happy that my son gets TMS therapy at Summit Brain Health. Dr. Geraci and Tylor are excellent; they are professional, accommodating, gentle and sensitive when it comes down to treating patients with disabilities. This is a miracle for us that this clinic opened up in San Carlos. Aldo has had about 30 treatments and the results have been incredible. Many thanks to the Summit Brain Health team.” – Georgina C.

To anyone who might be interested in this treatment, please call Dr. Geraci for more information. My daughter was treated and the results have been life changing. When one family member is struggling, it’s so difficult for the rest of the family to watch and not know how to help. This was like a miracle for her and all of us who have seen such dramatic changes happen so quickly. I only wish this had been available years ago. Thank goodness for new research and Dr. Geraci’s vision to help individuals and their families heal.” – Donna J.

My son had 50 treatments with Summit Brain Health. The staff and doctor were so calm with my son. My son is autistic, and he is very wiggling and they never show me or him that deal with him was hard for them. They always gave me kind words and tried their best. I could always reach the doctor with questions I had, and he took the time to answer them. My son is taking a break from the treatment but we will be coming back soon.” – Diana N.

From Silence to Speech: How MeRT Transformed Communication Abilities Against All Odds
MeRT Clinic Founders’ Inspiring Journey: How Their Son Sparked a Passion for Helping Others
At age 6, Jack already had a diagnosis of autism, however, he was verbal and functioning fairly well. Jack’s Nana has raised him and did all she could to keep him healthy through diet and other treatment modalities. On the morning of Jack’s 7th birthday, he woke up and experienced a major regression in verbal and communication skills. His Nana said it was as if he had had something happen to his brain, similar to a stroke, but diagnostic testing showed no changes had occurred. His anxiety levels were much more heightened as well.
Jack’s Nana brought him to Summit Brain Health for help. He went through six weeks of therapy and the changes have been astonishing. His anxiety levels are much more normal, he is speaking again, and he is excited about engaging with the world around him. We’d like to share some videos of his progress to show how sweet little Jack is now!
It is so heartwarming to see our patients progress and be able to live their best lives again! Not only is Jack happy, but so is his Nana! We are attaching some videos that show Jack throughout his treatment at Summit Brain Health.
Jack is our hero!!

We are dropping a line to thank you for your help last summer with Immanuel. We are RVing this weekend and marveling at how well Immanuel now socializes with other children at the campsite. Last year around the same time and he needed constant play supervision because he kept arguing and trying to control play. This weekend he’s able to go along with what others are playing.
He is also at a private school with no special ed teacher to support him, and he is able to succeed without the extra support. It’s a small classroom, but last year it would have been impossible. Immanuel has made such strides socially, with non-verbal cues, being flexible, and regulating his frustrations.
His occupational therapist has been amazed, as well. She evaluated him before he started treatment with you, but started therapy AFTER we returned from Texas. She says that he has been crushing the prescribed program — he scored significantly above expectations at the latest eval. And he is speeding through the stages. We are thrilled by Immanuel’s progress and the fact that he can play with other kids. He’s had numerous play dates at our house and they’ve gone well. This touches our hearts more than anything — that he has friends now.
Again, thank you for making this treatment available and for your guiding us through the process. We looked forward to the summer.” – David and Debbie J.

MeRT Worked When Other Treatments Had Not
I cannot begin to describe the miracle that is MeRT therapy, as well as the kindness and bedside manner of Dr. Geraci and his wonderful team. My 7-year-old is on the spectrum and has struggled with speech and cognition. I have researched literally every treatment and remedy I came across to see how I can help my son. Luckily, one day, a parent on my ASD support page recommended MeRT.
♣ ♣ ♣
“I went into it with low expectations because I didn’t want to get disappointed in case it didn’t give us gains, but boy, was I wrong. Five weeks into our treatment and my son was not only more verbal than before, but his speech was functional and was talking in long sentences. He was also very engaged instead of stimming uncontrollably and trapped in his own world. He also became very affectionate and started giving us hugs and kisses, whereas before he would just stare blankly at us and would refuse physical contact. It has been incredibly encouraging for us.
♣ ♣ ♣
“The gains that we got made the treatment worth it. Dr. Geraci is a gem. He is so wonderful and extremely patient with my sons. I cannot recommend him and MeRT enough and my wish is to reach as many ASD parents as possible so they can avail of this life-changing treatment for their children.” – Madeleine M.

I have better sleep and no longer have an urge to smoke cigarettes. I have no desire to relapse on what I had been taking previously. And I am more calm and can stay focused easily. I used to have night terrors and would scream every night. I no longer scream in my sleep.

“The change for me felt subtle. Now a few months I look back and I’m like wow… this MERT treatment changed my life all for the better. I went every day for 30 minutes. Tom was able to fit me in daily, no matter what my schedule looked like. He is a great, talented man and I am so grateful to him. Thank you Tom!

“I am so glad we met, and I got the help I needed… I wasn’t sure about it but now I feel if everyone in the world got this treatment, they would all be happier with sharper minds as the outcome.” – Lindsey B.

A Patient Writes About Her Phenomenal Changes
Madison is a 21-year-old patient with Autism who we treated at Summit Brain Health. She wrote the following letters to Dr. Geraci throughout her treatment process:
“Dr. Geraci, I’m very scared I won’t talk. I’m very kind and have important things to say. It’s important I talk so I can help others like me.”
“Dr. Geraci, thank you for changing my life. I’m happy, not depressed. It lifted in my brain. I’m so happy, and I want to live to do things. I’m so grateful. You’re an angel and so kind. I also am talking!!”
“Dr. Geraci, I’m more loving and able to cuddle my mom. She is so happy. Before, I was uncomfortable — too hard to be close. It just happened… not sure how, but I’m doing it.”
Madison’s mom added a note: “Madison opened the bathroom drawer, got out the brush, and I came in. She was brushing her hair and had already put toothpaste on her toothbrush. She started brushing her teeth herself.”

Incredible Results after Traumatic Brain Injury Treatment
I received a serious head injury, fractured two spinal vertebrae, and suffered a traumatic disc herniation requiring a surgical correction after a fall. Because of my injuries, I spent two years on narcotic pain medication. And in June 2013, I had to voluntarily enroll myself in a substance abuse rehabilitation program because I had grown dependent on opiate pain medications.
“Of all my injuries, by far the worst were the ones you could not see. I had degraded to the point of not being able to leave my home because of panic attacks and severe anxiety. I could not hide from this feeling, and no medication could numb it. At one point, I told my doctor that I couldn’t kill myself because I have a family with young children that I am responsible for. I was living in despair and physical pain every day without reprieve — that is until I was able to get treatment.
“After two months of neural restorative therapy, I had total symptom resolution. I can function again at work, and can spend much needed time with my family. I have my sense of well-being back and a clarity of thought I haven’t had in many years.”

I’m back! My TBI turned me into someone I barely recognized. I was depressed, mean, and short-tempered, pushing through life filled with frustration and a deep sense of sadness that this was it. It felt like I just had to keep pushing through life with an overwhelming tiredness. I’m so glad I was wrong — and I think my direct reports and family are even more thankful. This treatment changed everything, and I am forever thankful.” – 41-year-old male with TBI, executive

In the ensuing months after the concussion, I just wasn’t myself… My academics began to suffer as well. I didn’t feel right. My EEG showed me that something had physically changed with how my brain functioned. After three days of treatment, I felt substantially better. After two weeks, I felt like I did before my injury. MeRT was life changing.” – 21-year-old female with TBI, collegiate soccer player

46 Doctors, 29 Treatments, 40 Medications, and Nothing Helped… Until MeRT
I was not diagnosed with TBI until 2011. I was so bad off I was no longer able to take care of my children by myself for any extended period of time. My wife had to run the entire house, including myself, our 2-year-old, 5-year-old and two dogs. I believe the best way to put into perspective how bad off my health was is to show the medical treatment I received between only the fall of 2011 and now.
“Constant symptoms were: Daily headaches (between 6-8/10 on pain scale), severe neck pain, severe light sensitivity, tension headaches that radiated through my jaw, nausea, acid reflux, left leg sciatic nerve, excessive sweating even without physical exertion, poor/no sleep, exhaustion, angry outbursts, severe anxiety, severe depression, poor concentration and memory loss.
“I saw 46 different doctors to include: Neurologists (7), Psychologists (5), Social workers (4), Endocrinologists (4), Internal Medicine (2), Gastrologists (1), Pain Management (4), Spine (1), Ortho (3), Chiropractor (3), Physical Therapist specialists (3), Vestibular (2), Ophthalmologist (3), Audiologists (2), Ear Nose and Throat (1), Physical Medicine and Rehab (1).
“I tried 29 different treatments: Physical Therapy, massage, acupuncture, float tanks/sensory deprivation tanks, yoga, alpha stim, TENS unit, scraping, cupping, traction, meditation, guided imagery, bio-feedback, aroma/oil therapy, chiropractor, reiki, therapeutic touch, herbal supplements, ketogenic diet, paleo diet, gluten free diet, art/music therapy, mindfulness therapy, contrast baths, getting a minimum of 30 minutes of sunlight per day, drinking water with loads of electrolytes, stellate ganglion block (twice), nerve blocks C-2 thru C-5 and Botox
“I was also prescribed over 40 different medications during this time: Wellbutrin, Lexapro, L-methyl folate, Nuvigil, Fortesta, Testosterone Enanthate, Pindolol, Prazosin, Lunesta, Ambien, DHEA, D3, numerous Multi-Vitamins, fish oil, Imitrex injections and pills, Maxalt, Zomig, Relpax, Motrin, Naproxen, Tramadol, Nubaine, Amerge, Treximet, Valium, Xanax, Gabapentin, Reglan, Fiorcet, Excedrin, Migranal, Topamax, Paxil, Zoloft, Prozac, Concerta, Zofran, Magnesium/Riboflavin combo, Nexium, Marinol, Prilosec, Percocet, Vicodin, Steroid tapers (prednisone), Celebrex and Mobic.
“None of these doctors, treatments or medications were effective in reducing any of my symptoms for more than a couple of weeks of time. By the summer of 2016, I was addicted to narcotics, diagnosed with numerous orthopedic issues, severe depression, severe anxiety, and moderate PTSD.
“Everything changed when I started treatment. Within two weeks, I was sleeping better. I was off all 12 of my meds that I was on when I started treatment, and I was starting to enjoy life again. After the first month I was socializing with people again, I was able to work out for the first time in years, and I started to help my wife with the bills and our budget.
“As I write this, I just completed my sixth week of treatment. A conservative estimate is that I have had a 60–70% reduction of the symptoms I listed above and have a whole new lease on life. I can focus and I feel good about myself. I feel confident and I laugh again. And most importantly, I can feel the love for and from my family again.
“I have never met a group of people who truly focus on helping people feel human again. Spend a day here and you will see a miracle. The individual time and attention given to any and every patient is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. It really shows how much each employee truly cares about EVERY patient that comes through the door.
