Brain damage
« on: July 16, 2010, 08:04:11 AM »
I have a young friend whose brain was deprived of oxygen during delivery.  She's almost five and definitely developmentally delayed.  Are there herbs we can give her that might stimulate brain functioning or heal the damaged areas?

I don't know of anyone who has a track record of treating this type of condition with herbs.  But you might look into the herb recommended for elderly dementia as they are known to help blood flow and brain chemistry.

Siberian Ginseng, Rosemary, and Cinnamon are 3 I know of off hand, they might be a good starting place.

I do not know which herbs to recommend, but I encourage you to look into The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential, www.iahp.org and The Family Hope Center, www.familyhopecenter.org . I have used Mr. Doman's methods with my own boy as well as others, and they work!! If you can, check out his books from your library.

Our eldest daughter now 15 had a traumatic brain injury in a vehicle accident with a bus when she was 14 months old.
  The brain being mostly composed of fats has a huge requirement for good fats.  We gave her  lots of fish oils and evening primrose oil, as well as butter and other sources of good fats as much as possible.  She has recovered very well, though has some residual effects.  Overall her specialists are amazed at her recovery.  

I'm not sure if any herbs specifically are good , but one therapy I would consider looking into is Chelation Therapy combined with oxygen.  Dr Rind has some amazing things on his website with stroke victims showing a dramatic instant improvement.  WE are in Australia, and don't know of anyone doing what he is doing, but I would love to give this a go with our daughter for some residual weakness.
