Not too long ago, a patient called me up saying she had knocked her head pretty good on the trunk of a car and checked out to have a mild concussion. Typically, those with mild concussions have symptoms such as headache, balance issues, brain fog (feeling spaced out or loopy), visual or hearing problems, irritability and or emotional changes. Fortunately, these individuals typically make a full recovery in 7-10 days and treat conservatively with ice, pain relievers and rest, but what if there was another tool to add to the treatment arsenal?
Red wine has long been one of the quintessential pleasures of mankind. Ancient Middle Eastern civilizations drank it, the Romans drank it, and we drink it today in modern society. It is a universal drink which brings people of all different cultures together. From a health standpoint however, red wine boasts many benefits ranging from the cardiovascular system to combating inflammation in the body.
