The concern surrounding concussions continues to make the news; and with football season starting, parents need to be aware of the dangers that come with the game. A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that should not be taken lightly. Symptoms can include but are not limited to:
- lapses in memory
- headaches, including migraines
- loss of consciousness
- nausea, vomiting
- blurred vision
- repeating the same things even though you get an answer
- anger issues that were not present before a concussion
- behavioral changes
- nervous or anxious
Anyone with symptoms of a concussion after a fall should definitely contact their physician. The symptoms of concussion can, and in many cases do, resolve without further incident. Many, though, continue to have lapses in memory, learning problems, and other cognitive issues as well as, migraine headaches, trouble walking.
Homeopathy, a two hundred year old medicine, may be the answer you are looking for. Homeopathy is a system of medicine that treats with the idea that “like cures like.” Similar to giving snake venom to someone bitten by a snake. Another example would be treating allergies that have symptoms of watery eyes, sneezing and burning nasal discharge. What in nature causes similar symptoms? Cutting an onion. Homeopathy makes medicine from these common, and sometimes not so common substances, and uses them to heal people with similar symptoms. So if you have never been the same since being diagnosed with a concussion, you could very well find the answer in this wonderful time tested medicine.
