The Role of Nutrition In Traumatic Brain Injury Recovery
The food that we put in our bodies can impact the way we think, feel, and behave. Nutrition therapy is particularly important in helping to overcome the effects of traumatic brain injury. A well designed nutritional therapy regimen can actually help boost cognitive performance.
Nutritional counseling is an intervention that seeks to mitigate the negative outcomes of secondary brain damage. This term refers to damage that occurs after or as a result of the initial traumatic brain injury.
A proper nutritional program can supply the brain with the extra amounts of the nutrients it has lost and in turn, promote healing and reduce inflammation.
