Case series: Vitamin D combination therapy for traumatic brain injury

Posted on: May 22, 2013   by  Kate Saley


Traumatic brain injuries are a leading cause of debilitating injury and death in the United States. According to the CDC, 1.7 million people annually get a traumatic brain injury (TBI), resulting in 275,000 hospitalizations and 52,000 deaths in the US.

A TBI is caused by a blow or jolt to the head that disrupts normal brain function. The most common causes of TBIs are car accidents, sports injuries, falls, and assaults.

Recently, Dr Leslie Matthews and colleagues published a case series of three coma patients with severe TBIs. The researchers aggressively treated the patients with combination vitamin D3, progesterone, omega-3 fatty acids, and glutamine.

    wish we’d know this in 1992. My son was in a serious roll over car accident (yes he had his seat belt on). He’s still struggling with TBI health issues.

    If you are there and you do not mind me asking, how much Vitamin D does your son take right now? What is the largest amount he has ever taken or blood level reached?

    @jilt0wn, I am very sorry to hear about your son. In addition to the nutritional supplements mentioned here, I would like to encourage you to find a good ABM practitioner in your area: http://www.anatbanielmethod.com/ Anat Baniel is on the cutting edge of utilizing the science of neuroplasticity to treat a wide variety of brain disorders. Highly recommend her book, Moving into Life. Best wishes.
