Brain Injury


A brain injury is any injury occurring in the brain of a human. There are different classifications of brain injuries. Primary and secondary brain injury are used to describe the injury processes that occur in brain injury, while focal and diffuse brain injury are used to describe the location of injury in the brain.

Forms of brain injury include: brain damage, traumatic brain injury, stroke and acquired brain injury. Brain damage consists of the destruction of brain cells. There are a variety of causes, including illness and disorders. A large amount of brain damage would cause a traumatic brain injury following head injury from an outside source.

Traumatic brain injury, also known as intracranial injury, occurs when an external force greatly injures the brain. It is a major cause of death and disability worldwide, particularly in children and adolescents. Causes include falls, vehicle accidents and violence.

A stroke, known as a cerebrovascular accident, is the loss of brain function due to the lack of blood supply to the brain. There are a number of causes to this, including the lack of blood flow or a leakage of blood. As a result of the lack of blood to a particular area in the brain, the affected area cannot function which may result in paralysis of a limb(s), the inability to understand or formulate speech or the inability to see one side of the visual field. An acquired brain injury describes the brain damage when caused by events after birth, rather than as a part
of a genetic disorder.
Modern medicine has no cure for brain damage. Symptoms are attempted to be treated but the result is very little to no aid in the actual disorder itself. Fortunately, herbal remedies help for victims of brain damage. Contact Raif Emini,  Licensed Holistic Practitioner, Master of Alternative Medicine, PhD. in Natural Medicine.
