Dr Neil Bindemann

Primary Care and Community Neurology Society

Dr Neil Bindemann trained in both Immunology (BSc) and Neurobiology (PhD) and has a keen interest in the developing science of neuro-immunology, especially concerning mental health. Through Innervate Ltd, which he set up in 2001 to support advances in healthcare communication working in partnership with healthcare professionals, he has stimulated the creation of various initiatives including Primary care and Community Neurology Society and Community Therapists Network.

Then in 2015, after a period of disturbing neurological symptoms, Neil’s interest in neuroimmunology, mental health and healthcare communication became more personal, when he was diagnosed with a very rare benign (but still growing) brain tumour – pineocytoma. In March of 2018, the result of a routine MRI scan (indicating some tumour growth) prompted Neil to start the ketogenic diet. Over the last year Neil has taken his experience to continue to fuel his passion for supporting patient-professional communication/relationships, to ultimately support quality of life.

Why is the ‘Inflamed Mind’ relevant to neurological illness?

This talk will focus on why, by better understanding how to control our immune system, we can help to reduce the risks of mental illness, which is particularly high in people with neurological conditions. The talk will present recent research evidence and explore treatment options including the role of lifestyle medicine and our rapidly expanding knowledge of the gut-brain connection.
