Dr. Kenneth Stoller was an undergraduate at UCLA and completed his pediatrics residency training at the University of California at Los Angeles, School of Medicine, in 1986. He was a practicing board certified pediatrician for over two decades, focusing on brain injured children and adults. Dr. Stoller’s area of expertise is functional medicine, also known as integrative medicine. He has been working with patients with brain injuries ranging from traumatic brain injury, stroke, autism, cerebral palsy, MS, chemo-brain, and Lyme brain since the late 1990s.
His knowledge of esoteric complementary medicine has made him a sought after speaker and numerous Integrative Medicine conferences (he is a faculty member of Medical Academy of Pediatric Special Needs), and has been an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the AT Still School of Medicine Arizona, and UNM School of Medicine, Dept. Pediatrics. He believes it is tragic that many poorly recognized infectious agents are actually at the root cause of many mental health problems, with perhaps Lyme Disease being the most recognized of the medical illnesses that will cause everything from bipolar depression and dementia, to seizures. He believes countless patients have been misdiagnosed with a mental illness when they actually have an untreated infection.
Dr. Stoller is one of the few physicians that has been made a lifetime Fellow of the American College of Hyperbaric Medicine, and he has published numerous articles on using hyperbaric oxygen to treat brain injuries. He pioneered the use of hyperbaric oxygen for treating fetal alcohol syndrome and the journal, Pediatrics, published his work in 2005. Dr. Stoller is at the leading edge of physicians who use natural supplements and bio-identical hormones to help patients heal their brains. He wrote the book, Oxytocin: The Hormone of Healing and Hope, and set up the website www.GriefSOS.com in 2008.
In addition to being an astute clinician, Dr. Stoller’s extracurricular activities have included being among the founding board members of the Humane Farming Association and the One Hit Away Foundation. His new book, Incurable Me, is based on his website: Incurable Me.
“I spent years trying to find out how I became temporarily paralyzed at the age of four while attending the birthday party of a neighbor who was turning five. Eventually I compared notes with an elderly man who had developed polio in his youth, and then asked my mother if I had been vaccinated with the polio vaccine (circa 1960) around the time of the neighbor’s birthday party. As it turned out, I had been vaccinated two weeks before the paralysis I experienced. Thus, having been vaccine-injured myself, it altered the way I evaluated the efficacy and safety of vaccines.” -Dr. Stoller
