Natural Remedies for Concussion

After having a concussion, it is important to take all of the necessary steps to help your brain heal. Do not even think of playing sports, going to work, school, or continuing on with life pretending your concussion isn't a big deal. It is a big deal. You need to take a break and give your concussion a chance to heal. Resting is the most important natural remedy for a concussion; you should turn off computers, phones, tv, video games, music, and rest in a dark, quiet, calm space.

When Gwen, a student in high school, had her concussion, the doctors told her to rest. She didn't really get what a concussion was, but she went home and slept. She wasn't really hungry and didn't have much energy, so would call a few friends, tweet a little, have a snack, and go back to sleep. The first few days she couldn't even watch a movie or anything but as soon as she was able to she did, because she was so bored.

She didn't really like taking vitamins or supplements, so she didn't even give it a second thought when someone suggested it. She just wanted to pretend everything was normal. She pushed herself and pushed and pushed, and before she knew it a year had gone by and Gwen still felt like she had a concussion. "If only I wouldn't have pushed myself, and actually rested for longer than I wanted to", she thought, "then maybe I would be feeling better today. I was just so bored and wanted to be like I was."

What Gwen, and millions who get concussions, might not recognize is that what you do right after a concussion is so important. Even if it seems boring, and you're impatient to go back to normal life like Gwen, after all is said and done, taking the time to rest is priceless.

Alongside rest, it is also important to drink a lot of water and eat brain healthy foods. There are natural supplements for concussions that studies have shown a major reduction in swelling and decrease in concussion or brain injury symptoms after using some of these natural remedies. Fish Oil is one of the best natural remedies for a concussion as it can help to reduce swelling and is high in omegas and essential fatty acids. Turmeric, or Curcumin, is also very well-known to reduce swelling, so is a very great way to help support your brain after a concussion.

Gwen found the help of a few concussion resources, she started implementing some of the suggested solutions. She is still healing but is feeling the best she has since she had her concussion!
