When Brains Collide

Michael Lewis

There is nearly a 20% chance that you or someone close to you will suffer a concussion this year. Whether they are in a car accident, fall off their bike, or suffer a helmet-to-helmet hit at football practice, over 30% of such concussions will lead to long-term, potentially permanent disability. Even worse, many of these concussions are mild and go unnoticed and untreated. However, whether you are a concerned parent or an athlete worried about that recent or long-ago head injury, there is good news.

The proper utilization of Omega-3 fatty acids and their nutritional potential to feed and cultivate the brain’s biochemical environment can facilitate the concussion healing process, relieve symptoms without pharmaceuticals, and increase the chance for a happy and healthy future. Culminating a career spanning over three decades in the U.S. Army, Dr. Michael Lewis developed The Omega-3 Protocol, the military-grade brain injury treatment process for dealing with the concussive dangers of everyday life. Concussions are not always preventable, but they are treatable.

Find out how to give yourself or your loved one the best chance at recovery from brain injuries—large or small—by learning everything about, and becoming ready to apply, The Omega-3 Protocol today.

"That an ounce of prevention is worth several pounds of cure is especially true for the brain. As Dr. Michael Lewis points out in this seminal book, if you don't have sufficient levels of omega-3 fatty acids in the brain, you are at great potential risk for future neurological problems. When such events do occur, especially with severe brain trauma, you will require very high-dose interventions of omega-3 fatty acids to resolve the condition. When Brains Collide is an extremely valuable asset for anyone with a loved one whose life is being compromised by ongoing brain trauma."

"The use of omega-3 fatty acids for treatment of brain injury and disorders is an emerging field now with innumerable published studies and medical science support. Dr. Mike Lewis has been an innovator in omega-3 use, and he details his experience and that of his patients in When Brains Collide. The stories and plight of his patients, as well as the journey of discovery of a new form of dietary supplement support for the brain at a time when there is no comparable pharmaceutical answer, are fascinating and should spur others to action. "

"Dr. Lewis has written a compelling book, giving new hope to those who suffer the lingering effects of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and their loved ones. When Brains Collide skillfully combines the latest scientific research with interesting stories of those living with TBI and their experiences applying The Omega-3 Protocol for concussion."
