A concussion, also known as a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI), is caused by a bump, jolt or blow to the head. Millions of concussions occur worldwide each year from car accidents, sports injuries, falls, or by accidentally banging one's head into an automobile trunk. Not only are athletes at risk for multiple blows to the head from sports like wrestling, hockey, soccer, football, cheerleading, and gymnastics, but a new 2018 study now points to traumatic brain injury in hundreds of thousands of US troops from repeated trauma to the brain caused by explosions while training on weapons. 1
Natural treatment for a concussion focuses on promoting recovery through well-documented supplements like Magnesium and Omega 3 Fish Oil, getting adequate rest in a stress-free environment, and making sure not to overstimulate the brain during the healing process. Calming essential oils like lavender oil are also used as a natural aid and to help ease the depression and anxiety that can often follow a brain injury.
