Still Life with Peeps

Besides exercise, diet and supplements are also key to recovery from brain injury. This advice tries to be generic and all-encompassing in nature; your mileage may vary. Some of it works for me and some doesn't feel that important.

What happened to me is my body actually started demanding certain foods. Protein, especially fish. B vitamins. Caffeine. For a couple of years after the accident I craved foods rich in potassium like kiwi fruit. It turns out that potassium plays a unique role in brain function; it enables all electrical conductivity. Potassium and phosphorus stores are lower after TBI.

You'll find these cute peeps under the Foods to Avoid header. Sugar is no friend to cognitive function. But, feast your eyes!
