Overview

"Nourish Your Noggin!"
"Brain-Building Foods & Easy-To-Make Recipes to Hasten Your Healing From Mild Traumatic Brain Injury"

In May of 2010, my 13 yr. old son suffered a very severe concussion. He fell backwards and slammed the back of his head on a wood floor. A MONTH & A HALF LATER, while playing, he fell to his knees. This seemingly innocent fall was enough to shake his brain and disrupt his brain tissue and brain function. Within the hour, he had lines in his vision, echoed hearing, and he was very scared and disoriented. This time, the symptoms did not go away; they got much worse. Thus, began my son's journey into the scary world of "Mild Traumatic Brain Injury" and "Post Concussion Syndrome ." Our lives STOPPED.

Along with having him evaluated by a Pediatric Neurologist, I continued to do the things I could do: pray and become his advocate by researching proactive steps to help him to heal as quickly and fully as his brain would allow.

As an Integrative Health and Nutrition Coach, I understood that the foods that my son ate could positively or negatively affect his brain's ability to heal. This is where our family's personal journey with MTBI and my nutritional coaching experience come together to serve you.

This book explains about nutrition and the brain, foods and additives to stay away from and why, and wonderful foods that you can eat as you heal from brain injury. Included are over 60 recipes that taste great and won't break the bank. BONUS: I provide "Go-To" websites for food products and helpful resources. I did ALL the work so you don't have to!!!

What People Are Saying About Nourish Your Noggin

"In 1990, when I had my traumatic brain injury, there was no information about how foods could affect your brain or brain recovery. As a board certified health Psychologist and Neuropsychologist, I knew what you ate did affect your brain. Tina Sullivan's expertise in nutrition as an Integrative Health and Nutrition Coach has provided you with a book written with love that provides knowledge of brain injury, how and why food affects the brain and some really wonderful menus."

"Tina Sullivan's Nourish Your Noggin could not be a more welcome book for our military medical providers and families. Just shy of 2 million U.S. military personnel have deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan since the start of military operations in 2001 with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) or concussion as one of the most common forms of combat-related injury. These injuries may go undiagnosed and untreated for days, months, or years as attention is focused on the more "visible" injuries. Nourish Your Noggin brings a real awareness to TBI, helps you walk through health care choices, and gives you healthy food choices for a well-nourished brain. This book is a must read!"
