Concussions: Helping Your Brain Heal

May 24, 2011

It’s a conundrum. Some people get epilepsy / seizures from concussion-related accidents. And many people with epilepsy have concussions as a result of their condition.

Usually the doc’s attitude is “wait and see.” (Easy for them to say!)

But recently, I read about some wonderful research in Bottom Line’s Daily Health News (a terrific daily newsletter that I both wrote for and receive daily.)
