Comprehensive PTSD Recovery - HOLISTIC OPTIONS!!

As OFAN organizer, Ive engaged in thousands of novel discussions on the subject of Hempseeds + heart/brain benefits of Omega3s.

This brainfoodie blog is being updated to detail my own unfortunate 1st hand head-trauma experience: On 12/26/16 i was pistol whipped by an unidentified skinny teenage black male in Cleveland at Euclid & E.80th in a parking lot next to the abandoned church steeple.

He'd snuck up on me and told me to kneel down. he didnt yell hate slurs or try to steal anything. I yelled DUDE NO when i saw my blood gushing out onto my passenger car seat. after at least 3 blunt force wounds to my head, made in the same spot, I only needed stitches. Luckily he stopped before cracking thru my skull.

PTSD is a mental health scourge, I've researched many healing modalities and anti-depressants. There's a lot of options to re-charge our stamina & stabilize trauma. By promoting therapeutic activities and monitoring certain health-indicators, we can arm people with solid leads and restore hope that renewal and regeneration are possible.

ANYONE can and should use these leads to nurture your good attitude and boost confidence in the PATH to wellness and harmony. Gather your strength!

Health Indicators:

OMEGA FAT BALANCE- Aim for favorable fat balance ratio. Conventional wisdom recommends equal parts Omega3 and Omega6 and you sould be OK with 1:3-4 Omega3:Omega6. Reducing superfluous vegetable oils, trans fats, and saturated fats, replacing them with clean whole food sources is a great course of Action. ALA Omega3 #HempFlaxChia, Vegan DHA are both assets to brain-cell tissue you don't want to go without! Some folks on a heart attack proof diet advocate no added oil. If you're not responding to acute heart-disease risks its OK to get up to 20% of your calories from Fats. As long you have 3-6 balance, some omega9, you will limit inflammation and that is going to benefit your mood and lower stress.

MINERALS- Trace Minerals are crucial in signalling between cell membranes. Magnesium is a common nutritional deficiency. Here's a report on it's brain benefits. IODINE is also an incredible asset to supplement. Kelp and potassium iodide sources are inexpensive. This is an asset in recovering from brain-damaging FLUORIDE, which we are exposed to in municipal water supplies. Zinc, Boron, Copper and Selenium are others noting to get in adequate amounts.
