The brain is the most nutrient-dependent, energy-dependent and stress-vulnerable organ in the body. When it’s damaged by a concussion, providing it immediately with the right nutrients to maintain energy levels and reduce stress is crucial for speedy recovery without lingering symptoms.
Distilled Water: It safely removes all contaminants. It tends to be acidic and a way of drawing poisons out of the body. It should not be continually used as drinking water.
Almonds: Contain high concentrations of vitamin E, which has been shown to help reduce the risk of cognitive impairment.
Walnuts: Have a significantly high concentration of DHA, a type of Omega-3 fatty acid. Among other things, DHA has been shown to protect brain, improve cognitive performance, and prevent cognitive decline.
Pomegranates: Pomegranates contain many types of antioxidants. Pomegranate extract may help reduce joint pain and decrease inflammation. They may also slow down the growth of plaque formation in arteries, boosting heart health.
Cauliflower: is a good source of choline, a B vitamin known for its role in brain development. It may boost cognitive function, and improve learning and memory. Cauliflower also has vitamin C and other antioxidants. The health benefits of cauliflower include relief from indigestion, ultraviolet radiation, macular degeneration, and hypertension. The antioxidant power of cauliflower could help in strengthen the immune system and also help reduce the risk of stroke, and neurodegenerative diseases. It also could aid in maintaining bone, brain, and cellular health.
Turmeric: Is naturally anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-cancer. Curcumin shows great potential as a natural antidepressant. It could help impact depression by reducing brain inflammation. It can also improve memory and concentration by increasing blood flow to the brain. Curcumin increases the level of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a protein that stimulates the creation of new brain cells. New research shows that curcumin increases the bioavailability of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), an omega-3 essential fatty acid that’s a fundamental building block of the brain.
Ginger: Is a great anti-inflammatory. It could also help with digestive disorders, it’s also used to treat arthritis, muscle aches and pains, cramps, colds, flu, sore throats, asthma, and diabetes.
Cinnamon: Is able to prevent swelling, caused by strokes or traumatic brain injury, of isolated brain cells. It could also promote brain activity.
Blueberries: Help keep glial cells safe from damage.
Green Tea: In 2014 study, Borgwadt's team gave green tea extracts to 12 healthy volunteers and imaged their brains to see changes in connectivity inside certain brain regions. The volunteers were given beverages containing extracts equivalent to one or two cups of green tea. They consumed them nasally to ensure their tongues couldn't taste whether the drink contained the extracts.
Fatty Fish: Is also known as brain food

Specializing in dietary & nutritional changes to support optimal health
Incorporating scientifically based laboratory testing in conjunction with ElectroDermal Screening to quickly identify the underlying nutritional imbalances and cause of inflammation. These are then treated by nutritional adjustments to correct the underlying imbalance and allowing the body to heal itself.
Anti-inflammatory diet could potentially be a huge factor in PCS recovery
