Nutrition, PEMF and many other rarely discussed approaches can help Traumatic Brain Injury

Here is a snippet of some helpful research that I do to help those with concussion, post concussion or suspected traumatic brain injury. it is far more common than you think!

This article here is eye opening:

Abstract
Studies using traditional treatment strategies for mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) have produced limited clinical success. Interest in treatment for mild TBI is at an all time high due to its association with the development of chronic traumatic encephalopathy and other neurodegenerative diseases, yet therapeutic options remain limited. Traditional pharmaceutical interventions have failed to transition to the clinic for the treatment of mild TBI. As such, many pre-clinical studies are now implementing non-pharmaceutical therapies for TBI. These studies have demonstrated promise, particularly those that modulate secondary injury cascades activated after injury. Because no TBI therapy has been discovered for mild injury, researchers now look to pharmaceutical supplementation in an attempt to foster success in human clinical trials. Non-traditional therapies, such as acupuncture and even music therapy are being considered to combat the neuropsychiatric symptoms of TBI. In this review, we highlight alternative approaches that have been studied in clinical and pre-clinical studies of TBI, and other related forms of neural injury. The purpose of this review is to stimulate further investigation into novel and innovative approaches that can be used to treat the mechanisms and symptoms of mild TBI.

Concussion and Traumatic Brain injury, could PEMF help?

Here is a very important article on Concussion and Traumatic Brain injury with a recommended suggestion of PEMF as a supportive therapy.

I believe that creatine and omega 3 may also be of benefit and would include bioavailable turmeric in this list. For more significant neural and inflammation sequalae which are common more complex nutrition protocols can be added. I have touched on the research in this blog here. Contact me for more information.
