My daughter played volleyball at the highest collegiate level. She suffered her first set of concussions at 15. Back then there was very little information on what to do. Neurologist would diagnose then adios with RX of cognitive and physical rest.
Fast forward 10 years and she has suffered a total of 10 concussions from sport, coaching and an unfortunate accident. I have used high dose fish oil, antioxidants to dampen inflammation, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, neurofeedback, photobiomodulation, float tank therapy and chiropractic care to treat all of her post concussive symptoms.
She slipped down stairs yesterday and hit her head on the wall- she is currently 3 months out from being smashed in the head with a volleyball and was just starting to feel better. This is so depressing being sent back to square one. I remembered hearing JJVirgin discuss using progesterone on her brain injured child and I began the search for info.
What dosage would be appropriate for a female? I gave her 100mg of oral progesterone 22 hrs post injury. How much and for how long should I continue? I can only read so many PubMed studies looking for dosing etc.. before I lose it.
Thank you for any advice you can give!
