NFL and Head Injuries: Joe Namath's Treatment for Brain Injury

We've heard more and more in recent years about the impact brain injuries have had on NFL players.  Some of these guys are suffering pretty terribly with the impact of these injuries, not understanding what's been going on inside their own head. In my eyes, nobody should have to suffer from these injuries without access to educational information. We are long past the days of accepting concussions as simply a bump on the head and you just wait it out and get over it.  A concussion is a brain injury, plain and simple. A brain is not a football, a basketball, a hockey puck, or anything that can simply "bounce back" when making contact with a hard surface or being shaken. Yes, the brain can regenerate, but you have to be able to understand what's happening with it and which parts of it are damaged, in order to understand how to create improvements in functioning and to care for it properly.  There are long-term symptoms that can easily be brushed off as many other things, but when you are positioned to pay attention and are educated about what to potentially look for, care can be sought out much sooner.

In the article below, Joe Namath talks about a different kind of treatment that I have heard of, but I didn't know that it was used for brain trauma. It's rather interesting. You can also see a photo of a "SPECT" scan in the article, this is one of the kind of scans that was run on my brain when we were searching for answers for my symptoms.  I talk about having this scan done in "The Camouflaged Heart."

Thank you to the London Reflexology Centre. I'm glad you're finding it useful. I thought it was very interesting. There is a center in Arlington, Virginia: United States that is doing research on the use of bariatric pressure chambers to improve brain function with TBI and PTSD. I will look into getting some more information to post about this.

Reflexology is a therapeutic method of relieving pain by stimulating predefined pressure points on the feet and hands. This controlled pressure alleviates the source of the discomfort. In the absence of any particular malady or abnormality, reflexology may be as effective for promoting good health and for preventing illness as it may be for relieving symptoms of stress , injury, and illness.

Another group of extremely important supplements for body and mind are the omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3's are not produced by the human body. You have to get them through your food intake. This is becoming more and more difficult, because of industrialized farming techniques. One of the better ways to get omega-3's is to take a omega3 supplement, or other oil supplement which is loaded with omega-3's.
