In the United States, more than 3 million brain injuries yearly result in 220,000 hospitalizations, 52,000 deaths, and over 80,000 permanently disabled victims according to Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin Chiropractor and Naturopath Dr. J G Moellendorf, DC, ND, LCP.

The research team led by Linda Hasadsri at the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota recently published Omega-3 Fatty Acids as a Putative Treatment for Traumatic Brain Injury. They note that concussions are the most common injury among American soldiers stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan, affecting over 300 per month. It also has a devastating impact on athletes injured during contact sports. Most noted symptoms are impairments in sensory and muscle functions but this often progresses to impairments to learning and perception, emotions, and psychosocial functions. They found very promising laboratory evidence for restoring brain and nerve function among injured victims by using high doses of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) derived from cold water fish. The researchers concluded that while their results show promise in improving function in brain-injured animals and humans, it is too early to make
