Knocked Out at Girls Night Out
by Misty Phillip
I live in a house full of boys who love to play sports! They like all ball games, but some of their favorites are Football, Basketball, Soccer, Golf, Tennis and Ultimate Frisbee. My house is constantly full of stinky sweaty boys coming in from the yard.
Little did I ever think that I would be the one that would end up with…
One evening while out with some girlfriends, I ran to the store before I came home. It was late in the evening and I was in a hurry. I was wearing heels, and I didn’t duck when I got in the car. I wish I had some great story to tell like I was skiing down a mountain or playing rugby or something fantastic like that. However, the truth of matter is I’m just clumsy, and I hit my head getting in the car. I walloped my head hard enough to give myself a concussion! For weeks on end, my entire neurological system was overwhelmed. I had to lay in complete dark and silence while I healed.
As soon as I was well enough, I began researching how I could help myself fully recover. There is no specific treatment for concussion except complete rest. Although, I knew that there were things I could do that would contribute to improving and protecting my cognitive condition.
In my research, I found that I needed to get high doses of antioxidants into my system ASAP. So, I started taking a supplement by the name of Ningxia Red as soon as I possible! Shortly after that I discovered Ningxia Nitro and added that to my protocol. My diet consisted of things high in omega oils, like salmon and lots of antioxidants like blueberries. Frankincense helps to oxygenate the brain, so I began applying it to my skin. For a while, I walked around smelling like Frankincense all day, which is a good thing!
A concussion is considered a traumatic brain injury. I am familiar with brain injuries because I have a son who has Autoimmune Encephalitis, a severe medical condition where the immune system attacks the brain. I took the protocol that I was taking for my concussion and began giving it to my son to improve his cognitive condition. We are both experiencing the benefits of high antioxidants and omega oils, and now I keep a stash of Frankincense and Ningxia Red on hand all of the time!
If anyone I know suffered a concussion, I would highly recommend beginning supplementation of high antioxidants, including Ningxia Red and Nitro, Frankincense, and a diet high in omega oils as soon as possible!
