About Me

Hello everyone! I’m Lucy, and I have been recovering from a concussion and post concussion syndrome for over a year. I was studying nutrition and alternative health, driving home from a class when I got hit by an suv on the freeway, resulting in whiplash and post concussion syndrome.

Luckily,  I knew that one of the most pro-active things I could I do for myself was support the healing of my brain.

But there was a problem. How could I know what I needed, and find the products that met my standards (high-quality pure sources, cost, etc), without becoming overwhelmed and making my concussion symptoms worse?

As I struggled with light-sensitivity, headaches, lack of energy, and almost constant nausea, the last thing I wanted to do was research to find information about what could help.

I created this website to help other people with brain injuries gain easy access to information, products, supplements and nutrition to support their recovery without having to search all over the internet or wander stressed & confused in the store.  Everything here is organized in a calm, simple way, so you & loved ones can support your brain’s health during your concussion recovery.

Enjoy!

Lucy

  1. Hey Lucy,

    We specialize in baseline testing for athletes and a individualized Return to Play Protocol that allows for reinsertion into sport once symptoms have gone. We have been toying with the idea of providing our clients with concussions, a proper nutritional diet plan to aid mental recovery. From the brief readings I have done on your site, I am interested in seeing what information you can provide us regarding supplements, diets, etc.

    In turn, if we find that the information is useful and substantiated, we can mutually promote one another via social media. I do not have a background in nutrition and look to gain expertise from those that do.

    I look forward to hearing from you!

    Cheers,
    Jordano Papa

  15. Lucy,

    Hi, I am a student in undergrad school and have been struggling with post concussion symptoms since my incident in september. As many have expressed, it’s difficult to find a lot of information out there as a lot still isn’t known about concussions, and even harder to find it in an easy to read/understand format for those suffering. I’ve done a good amount of research myself and wish I had found your page first because it outlines everything so nicely, and sums up what countless hours through other pages might conclude. I’ve had a lot of support from family and friends who encourage me to stay calm and positive, but it’s comforting to hear it from people who have been through the same situation as they understand the difficulties. Thanks again, and keep up this great site.

    • Carrie,
      Thank you so much for taking the time to write.
      It must be a lot to be a student while dealing with post concussion syndrome – you probably have some helpful advice for the many others trying to stay or go back to school.
      I am so happy to hear that you like my site. I felt that we all needed something like this. It still needs a lot of work but as I still have PCS, I must pace myself.
      Nothing, to me, feels as good as connecting with other people who are struggling with similar issues. You’ve worded that beautifully; one of the reasons I appreciate hearing everyone’s voice…I feel like I can’t explain my symptoms but I read one sentence from someone else & feel so relieved. We are not alone!
      If you have anything you’d like to add, please do! Everyone is looking for solutions around here :)
      Thank you again for your comments!

  16. Hi! I just found your site. I was hit from behind on Oct. 17th 2014. Right from the start I tried so hard to get better. I pushed and pushed myself thinking if I just keep going I would beat this… For two months my family doctor said I have a “sprain”. Now seeing other specialists I’ve been told that I have post concussion syndrome and vestibular concussion along with the other body issues. I feel so isolated from everything as I can not work, drive, my life… has changed. My personal pity party I guess… I too have been searching and searching for info. It’s been very difficult trying to find good information. Thank you for your site. As much as I have a supportive husband he is away working a lot. With this site I don’t feel like I’m alone in this. Thank you.

  17. thank you Lucy, so much for your thoughtful website. i really appreciate it in my second month of recovery. it has encouraged me to be a little more patient while nourishing my healing brain!

    It has been astonishing: the paradox between how common this injury is, and how little is “known” about the constellation of signs and symptoms of Post-Concussion…

    Grateful to all, who are working hard to increase recognition of the recovery process…. :)

  18. Im happy to have found this site and am heading out to get some supplements, My accident was a terrible ATV accident and it just happened on Friday headaches, nausea sadness exhaustion. I was diagnosed with post concussion syndrome, wth?? I have been back and forth to the er at least 3 times since Friday. So now I will do what I do best and fight back hard so happy I found your site

  19. Hello, I am also an undergrad like carrie with PCS. I received my concussion in 2012, and it has been a non-stop struggle. Your survival kit is such a good idea. I’ve never actually tried a cold pack, but I think I might now. Thank you so much for this blog. You should really join theknockoutproject.org. Its run by Jay Fraga, he’s such a nice guy and its a nice community for concussion patients. Im sure he would love to hear your story and what you use to help your symptoms.

  20. Wonderful, what a webpage it is! This webpage gives helpful facts to us, keep it up.

  21. Your website is extremely helpful! I have several questions. Were you able to work? I have been dealing with PCs for 5 months. I begin to improve greatly when off work, but everyone I attempt to slowly go back to work, my symptoms get worse again. I am an elementary school principal, so a high stress job. Advice?

  22. Hey Lucy!

    So happy to see you put such a useful website together. I wish I would’ve come across something like this back in 2011, when I had a shooting accident. I was knew to shooting, and stupidly went through with shooting an elephant rifle. It wasn’t resting properly, and I ended up getting hit int he forehead with the scope of this powerful gun. To this day, i blame my brain fog, and seeming mental slips, on that accident. Anyway, i am unbelievably curious to heal my brain. Do you know, based on your research, if you can indefinitely heal your brain to its best, individualized capacity? Stated differently, is the “healing process” limited to half a year, a year, 2 years, 3 years, etc? Or could you heal your brain years, decades later? Would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for your great work and supportive online group.

    Thanks!

    Brad

  23. I suffered a concussion 3/3/15 just went back to work 3 weeks ago. I am still having some symptoms, but much better. How long will this last? I slipped on ice/snow and fell backwards hit head on concrete. I’ve seen Neurologist and had PT for my neck. still recovering. Any suggestions. Thanks
