Did you know that Concussions affect males and females differently?
Why is it that younger people and females deal with increased post-concussive symptoms?
The reason why younger people and the female brain battle increased post-concussive symptoms is because females and younger people have less myelin in their brain’s.
Myelin is insulator of nerves, and is critical to allowing cells to hold and conduct energy. Myelin is like the plastic around your TV cables which protects the wire. When myelin is altered such as from a blow to the heart, the system short-circuits and sparks fly just like if a TV wire was cut open.
So what are 3 simple steps to re-myelinate, improve and protect the young and female brain?
1. A high-healthy fat, protein diet, with minimal carbohydrates.
2. Boatloads of DHA and Iodine, ideally from seafood. Use spices like cilantro, basil, oregano and superfoods like chlorella, which are natural agents to remove heavy metals from the body.
The key is building up the charge in your cells, so that they can naturally remove heavy metals no problem. Energy-compromised brains accumulate heavy metals as in Autism, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
3. Movement to increase the formation of myelin and new brain cells.
Bonus: Add in super anti-inflammatory herbs like circumin (active ingredient in Tumeric) to increase brain cell growth and repair.
What “not to do” …. that will be next.
