Question: I have a friend whose daughter is suffering brain damage from a near-drowning. Is there something that could help my friend’s little girl?
Dr. Blaylock's Answer:
I am sorry to hear about your friend’s little girl. Supplementation would depend on her age, but there are a number of newer discoveries and studies showing that several nutriceuticals will not only protect the brain, but speed recovery.
In a young child suffering from drowning (hypoxia), the major damage is from excitotoxicity. Supplements that reduce excitotoxicity and inflammation, and improve brain energy production, can help alleviate the damage. This includes B-complex vitamins, mixed tocopherols/tocotrienols, vitamin C, curcumin, quercetin, resveratrol and EGCG (white and green tea) as well as DHA.
Vitamin D3 is also essential. Niacinamide plays a major role in recovery. The dose depends on her age.
