Does How You Live Affect Your Traumatic Brain Injuries?

Does how you live affect your TBI (Traumatic Brain Injuries)? The answer is yes. Diet, exercise, environment all can have an affect on how your brain heals after a TBI. Remember when we talked about how your body acid can attract disease with a negative mind set? This goes hand and hand.


What is a TBI or Traumatic Brain Injury?

According to The Centre Of Neuro Skills a ‘Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an insult to the brain, not of a degenerative or congenital nature, but caused by external physical force that may produce a diminished or altered state of consciousness, which results in an impairment of cognitive abilities or physical functioning. Profound disturbances of cognitive, emotional, and behavior functioning after TBI may produce permanent impairments that result in partial or total functional disability and psychosocial maladjustment.’ 

How does how I live affect my healing process? 

There have been multiple studies linking the repairing of brain injuries with diet. If what you’re eating isn’t good for the rest of your body don’t you think it’s hurting your brain too? How we carry out our life can contribute to the way the brain takes care of it’s neurological problems. Certain eating habits and routines have shown to impact select factors of TBI’s which can make the brain more likely resist damage, help the brain receive information better and improve motor skills. It is said that a managed diet and routine have a great therapeutic factor. SO really, a managed life is a healthier one (you can’t manage your health if you can’t measure it!) At the end of the day all evidence points to again, diet, exercise and environment. You can’t heal in a negative, unhealthy place no matter what you are suffering with.  Replacing things in your life can prove to enhance recovery and is an important approach to fixing anything in your life.

So how do I help the process?

Well first thing first is, how do you know you are healthy? You don’t right? Unless you go to the doctor every week. That’s ridiculous really so track your health with this in between visits. Next is water. Yes water, why? Water is life, water is the reason we live really. It fixes problems we didn’t even know we had. It also can help depression, anxiety, etc. Replacing what your drink with more water will help the healing process. The last two ways is what you eat and how you take care of your body. You might eat healthy but do you eat clean? Organics are an amazing natural way to help your body remove toxins from the unnatural things we put into it. Organic is not unaffordable, we chose to believe it is. Prices do vary but wouldn’t you rather pay for it now verses later on your death bed? I thought so. The way you take care of yourself does most definitely hurt you. I’m not saying drop everything and head to the gym because I know I’m not. Baby steps are key to making your life better. Go for a walk, a swim, a jog whatever, get your body moving.

Everything we do in our life either brings us closer to death or longevity, why not take care of yourself now so others don’t have to. Do a little research your self and see what I have found a learn how to take care of yourself and your loved ones.

Happy Clicking!
