Description

“The definitive guide to treating traumatic brain injury (TBI), from mild to severe, Concussion Rescue provides the most up-to-date, effective strategies for recovering your health and your life. Dr. Chapek has created an essential resource for anyone struggling with the effects of concussion.”
—Mark Hyman, MD #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
 
For more than 25 years, the renowned Amen Clinics has been the
front line of defense against the impact of traumatic brain injury
 
Few of us have been untouched by injury, whether on the sports field, in a car accident, falling off a bicycle, or in the course of military service. While the consequences of a concussion are not always immediately apparent, they can range from debilitating to devastating. In fact, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is fast becoming a national health crisis, with millions of Americans visiting emergency rooms with a TBI each year. But there are proven, effective steps for healing.
 
In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Kabran Chapek describes in detail the programs and protocols he uses at the Amen Clinics to put patients on a pathway to recovery. For anyone struggling with the effects of concussion, Concussion Rescue guides you through strategies from the cutting edge of brain science:
 
* Find out what treatments should be employed within the first few hours, days, or weeks of suffering a concussion
 
* Build a diet and supplement plan that energizes your brain and promotes neurological healing
 
* Learn specific brain exercises and brain games that can alleviate problems with focus and concentration
 
* Discover which specific types of exercise can speed recovery—and how exercise affects the brain in general
 
* Correct sleep problems to detoxify the brain and release essential hormones that aid in healing
 
With a foreword by renowned psychiatrist and brain health expert Dr. Daniel Amen, Concussion Rescue provides the tools for recovery from mild to severe traumatic brain injury. Whether you or someone you love is among the many individuals suffering from a TBI, here is hope and help.

“I so wish this outstanding book had been available when my son had a soccer concussion in high school. It took six months before he was back to normal. He could have recovered so much more quickly if we had known of Dr. Chapek’s protocols. Every parent with active children must read this book to be prepared for the inevitable.
Joseph Pizzorno, ND, Founding President, Bastyr University
 
“A comprehensive, natural program that addresses the underlying neurophysiology of the effects of concussions and traumatic brain injuries. Easy to read and packed full of practical,
clinically-relevant information. The well thought out program in Concussion Rescue will dramatically improve our current ‘wait and rest’ medical model for concussions and traumatic brain injuries.”

“Finally, a breakthrough against the brain injury epidemic! Dr. Chapek skillfully explains how to use SPECT functional brain mapping, cognitive testing, and meticulous lab work along with concentrated oxygen, diet, supplements, and numerous other nontoxic treatments to rescue the brain from TBI. Anyone who wants their brain to work better will benefit from reading this book.”
Parris M. Kidd, PhD, University of California Berkeley, Brain Nutraceutical Pioneer  
 
“In Concussion Rescue, Dr. Chapek lays out in detail exactly what you need to know in order to recover from a traumatic brain injury (TBI), or concussion.  Never before has anyone created a ‘TBI first aid kit,’ which are basic nutrients and supplements to take immediately after injury to reduce inflammation and cell death, and to help PREVENT many of the insidious post TBI symptoms that plague so many people.”  
Drew Sinatra, ND, Lac Integrative Medicine
 
Concussion Rescue is an excellent guide, reference, and road map to understanding and recovering from brain injury. Dr. Chapek eloquently provides a detailed tool kit and action plan to assist in repairing the brain from injury. I will read Concussion Rescue and refer to this again and again.”
