10 Best Supplements To Help Post Concussion Syndrome Treatment

Post Concussive Syndrome

I am writing this article in hopes to help those of you suffering from Post Concussion Syndrome (PCS) as this past year my girlfriend suffered from Post Concussion Syndrome. As was the experience for us, you might already know its pretty difficult to find information on homeopathic or holistic treatments.

We went to countless doctors visits, from the ER to Urgent care and stayed up many sleepless nights. It was very rough on her to say the least..

The medications the doctors gave her were little to no help so we looked into using homeopathic supplements in support of her medications. I have compiled a list of supplements that she found helpful. Her case was severe as she was in two car accidents within a two month time period. Some supplements helped more than others but everyones body works differently so please talk to your doctor about taking any supplements.

 

1. Longvida (Curcumin

Curcumin is an extraordinarily powerful compound found within the turmeric root, a root belonging to the ginger family. As evidenced by preliminary research findings, curcumin extracts contain antioxidant and amazing anti-inflammatory properties in volumes enough to help treat a variety of chronic diseases.

Longvida curcumin was developed to improve neurological health but specifically to improve the delivery of curcumin into the brain tissue.

…Additionally, Curcumin is noted to serve therapeutic purposes, such as stress and anxiety reduction. It is especially powerful in areas having to do with brain growth, cell membrane stabilization, neuro-recovery, reducing cholesterol, chelating heavy metals and supporting mitochondrial defense.

2. FishOil

Fish oil is the best source of two plant-based essential fatty acids known as Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)

…EPA and DHA are active compounds that mediate cell signaling and influence anti-inflammatory pathways as necessary for brain development and function. Full of omega-3 fatty acids, fish oil is capable of

decreasing nerve swelling, recovering cognitive functioning, increasing nerve repair and even improving your overall mood!

We found fish oil to be the most helpful supplement. It really helped with her headaches/ migraines and in turn this helped her get better sleep witch in turn improved her overall mood.

3. Creatine

Creatine is an amino acid primarily found in your muscles. Continued research findings indicate that the benefits of creatine are evident in its ability to lessen symptoms of concussion by preventing and treating neurological deficits, which typically follow an injury.

Creatine can be taken in powder form or in pill form. We found the pill form to be more convenient but you do what you feel is best for you.

This can be taken in powder or capsule form. We found the powder to be more convenient as she would toss some in with her morning smoothie but the convenience factor might change from person to person so rest assured they are both the same just do what is right for you.
