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.
