Reminding us all that it is the Victorian Mental Health Month.
A study at the National Institutes of Health (of USA) "Plasticity is found throughout the nervous system and is thought to underlie key aspects of development, learning and memory, and repair. Neuroplastic processes include synaptic plasticity, cellular growth and remodeling, and neurogenesis. Dysregulation of these processes can contribute to a variety of neuropsychiatric diseases. Impairment of of the mechanisms of plasticity can lead to cognitive deficits." .

Sunday night dinner ...
.
Quick, easy and super healthy!! .
.

Sunday's always seem to be catch up days, am I right!?! Food prep, laundry, dishes, etc... So making a fast, yet nutritious meal is sooooo helpful. .
.

This salad is full of antioxidants, nutrients, and brain food; with fresh red cabbage, rainbow chard, kiwis, walnuts, turmeric, and a side of quinoa and kaniwa.
.
I made the dressing with some Sauvignon Blanc, garlic, apple cider vinegar, camelina oil - for healthy omega 3 - fresh lime juice, black sesame seeds, turmeric, basil, ground pepper and hymilayan salt.
.
Variation notes: for those of us who need to avoid alcohol; ie, concussions/brain injury, pregnancy, healing, etc. You can make the dressing and cook it in with the quinoa for the last five or ten minutes, this will cook out the alcohol. Or you can omit it, and sub it with a juice or alcohol free cooking wine. .

My whole I’ve been blessed to have played Football as an Offensive and Defensive Lineman. And the 10 years I spent playing Football helped mold me into the man I am today. I built relationships along the way with the many coaches from 2003 and winning the lower-tackle PSLAA (shoutout Coach Jeff @bostonboy_39) to more recently in December of 2013 winning the Central Jersey Group IV Championship with Coach Robert Dahl.
That said Football is a sport for the faint of Heart. And I’ve taken my fair share of bruises bumps and lumps:
6 bulging discs in my back.
Fingers and Toes being crushed and smashed.
Sprained joints.
The list goes on.
What I’m about to say very few know and this is the first tome I’m going public with this information.
Saturday night, September 21st, I had a petite-mal seizure as I was leaving a nightclub in Okeechobee, Florida. The combination of loud music and flashing lights caused it. That in conjunction with the repeated head traumas, concussions and sub-concussive blows from playing Football caused it and scared me enough into going in and seeing a Neurologist trained by the Carrick Institute. I had been planing on going in and getting checked out for them anyway but last month was a reality check.
The reason I was thinking about going in is because I was for the last few years I’ve been living with Post -Concussion Syndrome. I’m talking most of the symptoms can be checked, textbook case. Not only the medical symptoms; spaciness, memory, so on and so forth. But also some of the psychological symptoms; depression, anxiety, etc.
Some days are better than others. And I’m living with this one day at a time.
I’m fucking scared, but I’m getting the help I need.
To wrap this all up, one question I know I’ll be asked is if I would allow my children or if I regret it all. My answer? I would allow my children to play if they wish, and no chance in hell do I regret playing ball.

To my family, I love you all so much. 🤟🏼 Thank you for your continued support.
To those close with me, or those willing to reach out. Ill still be on available via text.
To those I shared the field with, Thank you my brothers. #tbi #concussion

A head injury is not a joke thanks to my headgear it could’ve been worse. My FULL 90 headgear did it’s job & I’m glad I had it on. My mom recommends if you do have one she encourages that you use it for your safety. Play safe my friends, I’m doing fine.⚽️🥅 #Mild #Concussion #HeadInjury #SoccerLife

Time to up the self care game!
My detox bath - Epsom salts, baking soda, Essential Oils, a bit of carrier oil, hot water and quiet 🙏🏻 First I dry brush my skin. We often think of detoxing from the inside out but we can also help it along by dry brushing. We get rid of dead skin cells and get our lymphatic system going. Do this for about a week and you will feel a difference in your skin.

For the bath - I like the water as hot as I can stand it. I add the baking soda, then put the Epsom salts and oils together in a cup before pouring it in. I choose different Essential Oils each time. Some of my favs: Deep Blue, Eucalyptus, Cedarwood and Aromatouch.

Multitask this - make it a mind and body detox - no electronics, no noise, no books, nothing. Just soak and detox.

Enjoy!

My one true love, boxing. I started training five years ago when I was studying abroad in Australia, and have trained in DC, Rhode Island, and now NC! Though I can’t spar anymore because of the extent of my brain injuries (non-boxing related!), boxing is one of the main passions in my life. It has always made me feel so strong, inside and out. It’s a core part of my identity and I can’t wait to keep going with it. It has been there for me in the lowest of lows and has always helped me build up or build back my feelings of strength, empowerment, and of course - fearlessness! I love knowing I can handle and take care of myself even though people may underestimate me because I “look” otherwise 🎀👊🏻🎀 Thanks @thebebrand for the hat that fits my vibe so well! And @fabletics for these awesome bottoms ✨✨ •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #strongwomen #strong #strength #empowerment #fearless #beboldbewellbeyou #photography #boxing #workout #fitness #exercise #positivevibes #training #mindfulness #wellness #mentalhealth #healthy #fit #lifestyle #happy #passion #selflove #selfcare #style #pink #concussion #recovery #fightlikeagirl #sportsphotography #abusesurvivor

A publication in the American Journal of Sports Medicine found that mixed martial arts fighters suffer a traumatic brain injury in almost a third of professional bouts- far more than the rate of such injuries in hockey, football or even boxing. Neck strength conditioning may reduce the severity and number of concussions a fighter receives 🥊 What neck exercises do you incorporate into your training?

The Fencing Response is a trait of more serious concussions, occurring only in those of moderate force. Upon impact a neurochemical storm is initiated which results in a tonic “fencing” posture. The concussed individual will extend one or both arms outward in a rigid fashion, whilst unconscious. This is sometimes followed by convulsion & indicates damage to the midbrain. Swipe to see more examples 👉 Have you ever noticed this whilst watching sport? 🧠 🚨

ASK DR JONES! (A really hard question...) 🙄 Our first question comes from Jacksonville, FL. @jaxarchitect asks: Do brain cells die and get replaced? Is this why we forget things and memories fade?
👇 Let’s see what Dr Jones has to say about this one👇
This is a great question @jaxarchitect & a complicated one to answer! Let’s break it down 👉 Firstly, there are many kinds of brain cells, and each have a different life cycle. In fact, there are so many different kinds of brain cells that neuroscientists have still not yet fully classified the 100 billion neurons in our head! 🤯 It’s guesstimated that up to 10,000 different types exist (with one neuron dying every second of our lives!) So let’s focus purely on the hub of the memory center: the hippocampus. Whilst some neurons here do last a lifetime, others are lost and replaced by a process called neurogenesis. It’s not strictly the death of neurons that cause our memories to fade, but also the FORMATION of new neurons (and pathways) during neurogenesis. Sounds weird, right?! 🤔🧐🤨 Let’s take a look at what’s going on here 👉 Connections between brain cells are strengthened through a process called neuronal firing- think of it like a telephone call made via a cable ☎️ - the more times you dial the number, the thicker and more robust the cable- and the quicker the dial. But if you stop calling, and instead start dialing other numbers, new cables form AROUND your original cable, thus making it more difficult to reach your original number- or rather- to retrieve your original memory. Use it or lose it!💡 With that being said, the process of forgetting is different in normal aging versus a diseased state like Alzheimer’s disease! Which is a whole other ballgame game ⚾️ 🏈 Hope that’s somewhat answered your question :) Come back soon with another (challenging!!) question! -DRJ.

While today was a good day, the last two weeks have been difficult. While I'm informed that I need to see a #concussion specialist outside of my network of doctors for #postconcussionsyndrome by my insurance company, the doctors refuse to send me to one. They keep telling me to go back to #neuropsychology. My last visit with that department left me more lost than I was before, and the doctor informed my husband and I that #cte isn't a real thing and all #concussions show up on scans. I can't take the stress of going back, but my symptoms are getting worse. I've been stuttering, losing words more often, repeating myself and the #brainfog is ridiculous. Why is #americanmedicine so difficult?!? #medicinefail #misdiagnosed #misdiagnosisiscommon #fuckthisshit #icantsleep #imissbeingnormal

A portion of news on Review of Optometry caught my eye because just last week I had a young, male patient who recently suffered a concussion and has been suffering from visual symptoms since the injury. 👦 During the exam, I discovered each eye had a very small compound myopic astigmatism, but his spectacle prescription did not account for the blurry vision at near or decreased stereopsis, near point convergence, or color vision. 😔
____________________
This is not an uncommon issue, and objectively assessing the problems can be difficult. This problem prompted researchers in Minneapolis to begin looking at eye-tracking algorithms. They evaluated 56 concussed children and 83 healthy controls. What were the results? They identified 12 eye-tracking metrics that were significantly different between the 2 groups. The automated eye-tracking algorithm they discovered correlates with symptoms, convergence insufficiency, and accommodative dysfunction.

🧠#TBItuesday! Can supplementing creatine facilitate TBI recovery? Research is beginning to show that it can. The study below found that 0.4g/kg of creatine per day significantly reduced fatigue, dizziness, and headaches in children recovering from TBI as compared to the control group.
.
🧠The study’s subjects were children recovering from severe TBI, and supplemented creatine every day for 6 months. Having said this, it remains unclear if creatine supplementation can assist in acute recovery of mild TBI (concussion). However, the neurophysiological deficits of mild vs severe TBI can be very similar, so we can hypothesize that creatine’s effects would be similar as well.
.
🧠TBI induces an acute energy crisis in the brain. Cerebral metabolism is forced to work overtime in an attempt to reestablish proper electrolyte balance within the brain. In essence, your brain runs out of energy, inducing symptoms like fatigue. Creatine is a necessary “ingredient” in energy production, which is why supplementation appears to promote recovery.
.
🧠Creatine supplementation carries few adverse effects when properly dosed. We are not sure if applying it to concussion recovery will in fact expedite your return to play / life, however, it certainly won’t hurt! If you are recovering from any form of TBI, be sure to contact your physician and ask if he/she condones creatine supplementation (prior to use, of course).

#mikematheson suspended only 2 games for deliberately slamming star rookie #eliaspettersson into the boards then recklessly throwing him down onto the ice. He should be suspended more than two games while #pettersson is under the NHL concussion protocol for two weeks or more. I think the league is getting better but it’s still not protecting the star players.
————————
And in my opinion, Mike was upset he was getting his ass deked by this rookie, and that’s why he did it. Mike is a little bitch.

There are many things out of my control right now... and for a control freak, it's driving me CRAY CRAY 😁 but one of the things I CAN control, is what I eat - so taco's in bed it is! 💃

If I'm being honest, since last Saturday I have been falling into old habits because my symptoms are very much like my old habits! Mood swings, irritability, over sleeping, cravings, eating everything in sight, avoiding the world... All of these symptoms of a concussion are too familiar and yesterday I recognized that I have two choices. One - to let these symptoms turn into habits again and let this bed rest become a downward spiral... OR two - use this time to be thankful for the things I can control and wait patiently for an incredible comeback... I choose #2 👊
First things first - taking control of my nutrition. Even if I can't workout, can't work, can't do a lot of things.. I CAN control this. I have complete control over what I eat and thankfully I have a nutrition only program I can follow for the next little while!
So, Imma enjoy the heck out of these tacos in bed and pray that these final 10 days of Doctors orders recovery are all it takes 😌
