ABOUT DANIEL

My name is Daniel Carcillo, and since 2015 I have been on a mission to recover my brain health, understand my mental health issues and regain my quality of life.

“I have been on a 4 year journey to understand my mental health complications which took hold over my life after a 12 year professional hockey career. I received thousands of concussive and sub-concussive blows to the head, which led to my retirement from hockey at the age of 30 due to Post Concussive Syndrome. My symptoms included light sensitivity, slurred speech, memory, concentration and impulse control issues, headaches, head pressure, insomnia, loss of appetite, brain fog, fatigue, anxiety and depression that grew into suicidal ideation and scared me into turning to original (alternative) medicines. I spent 3 and a half years in concussion clinics across North America, spent hundreds of thousands of dollars and was seeing little to no results. After turning inward and checking my hormones, introducing plant medicines that flush out inflammation and promote neurogenesis, as well as shifting the way I viewed my injury through mindfulness practices, I was able to finally see major improvements in my quality of life and brain health.”

TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY

Understanding signs and symptoms of traumatic brain injury and moving into proper care and diagnosis is imperative to ensuring that young children and adults have a road to recovery. The first step is recognizing symptoms in yourself, a friend or loved one. Symptoms include, but are not limited to, headache, nausea or vomiting, fatigue or drowsiness, problems with speech, loss of balance, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, loss of smell, sensitivity to light, loss of short term/long term memory, loss of appetite, mood swings, sleep problems, depression, anxiety and suicidal ideation. MRIs and CAT scans can not diagnose a concussion. It is imperative to know your treatment options.

MENTAL HEALTH

The two most common mental health illnesses people suffer from are depression and anxiety. Depression can show up in our lives in the form of  feeling guilty, worthless, the void of feeling joy in daily activities, isolation, feeling irritable and over/under sleeping. Anxiety can take the form of overthinking and racing thoughts, restlessness, social anxiety, excessive worry, and feeling of impending doom.     

If you are living with anxiety or depression and it is effecting your day to day life, it is crucial to get to the root cause of the problem. Diet, sleep, plant based supplements and exercise are all factors that can contribute to your overall long term well being.

NATURAL MEDICINE

Taking a pill to mask daily symptoms is temporary solution.

All of us have problems that arise in our lives on a daily basis, whether its family, friends, or work. While dealing with all life throws at you on a daily basis the last thing you want to deal with is the awful side effects that arise from a pill full of synthetic chemicals.

That is why Daniel Carcillo has been relentlessly working to find something that can help everyone feel better mentally, physically, and even spiritually. The best medicine is natural medicine, this is what Daniel has come to realize after years and years of tests mixed with countless different medications.

Implementing clinically tested, natural supplements into your diet like CBD and mushrooms can help promote homestasis, while calming down the inflammation that causes pain and inhibits recovery.

MADE PLANT HEALTH

I am the founder and creator of Made Plant Health.

I created this natural medicine shop to help those who struggle with depression, anxiety, and TBI. I know when I was suffering all I wanted to do was make it stop. I did everything I possibly could to find a solution which for a long time consisted of countless doctor visits and endless tests. All the doctors said the same thing to me “Take this cocktail of pills every day for the rest of your life.” So that’s what I did… afterall they are doctors right?

Long story short I ended up with a laundry list of side effects. When I told the doctors about would just prescribe me a different pill with different side effects.

Finally I said enough is enough and formulated my own medicine… thus Made Plant Health was born!
