It’s Concussion Season

As parents, we sign our kids up for a particular sport, but never do we think of our babies getting a concussion. To understand concussions better, the brain moves quickly or harshly inside the skull classifying it as a concussion.  All the shifting and movement in the skull problems cause headaches and even some serious conditions in the future. Wearing safety gear can help, but can't stop all concussions. The good news is, that getting the right nutrition might help your brain heal and stay healthy after a concussion. The reason we're mentioning nutrition is because of Dr. Udo Erasmus, Ph.D. Nutrition, MA Psychology. Internationally known for his research on fats and oils. He also has authored his breakthrough diet plan, "The Right Fat Diet," and "Fats That Heal, Fats that Kill." Concussions are one slip or bump away. Imagine that an accidental clash of heads in a soccer game, a tumble on the bike, or maybe those slippery moments in the shower can bring you to your knees. Headache or “pressure” in the head. Nausea or vomiting. Balance problems dizziness, or double or blurry vision. Bothered by light or noise. Who gets concussions? Out of the 3 to 4.5 million concussions every year, nearly 2,000,000 are children aged nineteen or younger who are treated in emergency rooms for sports and recreational-related head trauma. The list for sports-related brain trauma includes soccer, hockey, lacrosse, wrestling, playgrounds, bicycles, skateboards, horseback riding, and falls. According to the CDC, the most common symptoms of concussion are headaches, brain fog, fatigue, lack of energy, personality and mood changes, anxiety, and irritability. Sometimes symptoms may not be readily apparent for days or even a couple of weeks. Check out Dr. Udo Erasmus.
