Brain Injury Recovery

Lifestyle Recommendations:

•   After formal inpatient rehabilitation, arrange for outpatient therapy in the home, or, if necessary, in a residential                facility.

•   Refrain from using substances such as caffeine, alcohol, and nicotine, as they can affect the brain more than they did        prior to injury.

 •  Practice good sleep habits to recover from mental and physical fatigue.

•   Accept long-term emotional support; stay away from negative people.

Dietary Tips and Caveats:

•   Consider the ketogenic and/or low carb diet for healthier brain function.

•   Stay well-hydrated; dehydration impairs brain function.

•   Choose healthy fats and high quality whole protein sources; avoid ALL fried foods and partially hydrogenated fats.

•   Avoid sugar-laden foods and high fructose corn syrup; avoid blood sugar fluctuations which can negatively impact            brain function.

•   Eat a gluten-free, anti-inflammatory diet.

•   Eat foods high in neuron-protecting vitamin E such as raw nuts, oils, raw wheat germ and spinach.

•   Consume adequate amounts of antioxidants  and flavonoids which can be obtained daily through 5-9 servings of               vegetables/fruit. If unable to consume the recommended servings of vegetables/fruit, add 1-2 tablespoons of                     PaleoGreens™ and PaleoReds™ in purified water daily.
