Epsom Salt

Epsom Salt Baths should be one of the first steps in TBI healing. After a concussion, Magnesium levels plummet and stay low for about 4 days. In the most simplified form, Low Magnesium-> High Calcium-> Cell Death. Soaking in Epsom Salts, or Magnesium Sulfate, allows the body to absorb this mineral transdermally while the heat (and possibly also the Magnesium!) helps relax sore neck and shoulder muscles which, left untreated, can lead to more headaches and nausea.
