About Us

Branch Out Neurological Foundation exists to help mitigate and eliminate the 600+ diseases of the nervous system that affect nearly 20% of the world's population! We’re doing it with an open mind by "branching out" to fund a new field of research we've dubbed neuroCAM (neuroscience + complementary and alternative modalities).

Your generous donations fund students and academics to engage in valid, peer-reviewed scientific research into traditional medicines and other forms of healing and preventative care not traditionally studied by Western medicine.

Just last year alone we raised nearly half of a million dollars
for students and researchers working towards better treatments!


Our Mission

To prevent sickness and disability by funding qualified researchers to find ways to prevent, treat and cure neurological disorders through the use of neuroCAM.
