The dosage is typically between 250 and 500 mg 3 to 5 times a day.

` DHA helps the brain remyelinate. DHA is the most prevalent of all oils present in the brain, and if you’re deficient in DHA, the body is unable to “rewire” itself. The other thing that can happen, and is a little bit trickier to treat, is progesterone imbalance. Your body needs adequate progesterone to heal.

You have a history of concussion. Sometimes that can cause the adrenal glands to malfunction, so cortisol secretion decreases, production of estrogen, testosterone, cortisol, and DHEA, as well as the progesterone levels are not adequate, and you’ll end up with these difficulties.

Additionally, you rule out sphenoid or ethmoid sinusitis, which can be a miserable headache issues. But if your head was bounced around, you can actually cause this type of sinus issue. It’s very difficult to break, but you do need a special CAT scan to see it. If you don’t look for it, you’ll never find it. It’s unusual but it’s possible there.

Post-traumatic hypothyroidism can also cause headaches like this. Check for thyroid issues as well.[/testimonial][/testimonials]
