What is Brain Injury?
Your brain controls your ability to think, talk, move, and breathe. In addition to being responsible for your senses, emotions, memory, and personality, your brain allows every part of your body to function – even when you’re sleeping. Brain injuries are often described as either traumatic or acquired based on the cause of the injury.
Brain Injury is like a puzzle,
all the pieces are there, but they just don’t fit.
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is caused by a shock from an accident, physical and emotional trauma, sometimes by serious illness (not of a degenerative or congenital nature).
How can a TBI affect your brain and body? It can make it:
difficult to think clearly and quickly.
more challenging to solve problems, make decisions or respond properly,
hard to move your body properly or speak, normally or control body functions
difficult to regulate your behavior, emotions, and reactions.
TBI can be life-changing for both the one with the injury and the family that loves them.
These natural therapies can help the injured and the family to heal.
