A concussion is mild trauma to the brain. But did you know that a concussion affects not just your brain, but your entire body? The trauma that your body experiences due to sudden impact or force to the head can lead you to experience “concussion symptoms” (nausea, dizziness, headaches, migraines, blurred vision, motion sickness) far longer than you truly should. A concussion leaves your body in shock, inflamed, and flooded with cortisol, causing your adrenals to work overtime and eventually burn out.
I like to address and reduce inflammation in the body through macronutrient manipulation, introduce nutrient-rich supplementation such as DHA, and restore the adrenal glands the body can be in a much stronger place that will have you bouncing back from your “concussion symptoms” and in fact treating the root cause of your symptoms in the first place.
