Common with brain injuries, the brain works 25-50 percent harder after injury. Starting day 1 – add these supplements. Test showed I had a Blood Brain Barrier Breech, as many do after head injury, so one must be careful with medications and toxic food products. Since 1984 I’ve been eating vegetarian, but started taking Bone Broth as it has protein nutrients the brain can’t get elsewhere.

Best diet – colorful and diverse veggies and fruit.

Supplements: Magnesium Threonate, tumeric-curcumin, omega 3’s, DHA, D3, Ginko Biloba… Take for 1-2 months and check in.
I take NeuroMag – Chelated Magnesium L Threonate 145 mg a day
Metabolism support – Riboflavin, B6, Folate, B12, Trimethilgycine.
Adrenotone for adrenal support.
Calcium, Magnesium Butyrate – short chain fatty acid for gut and full body support.
Vit E & Selenium, Omega’s, herbs for nerve pain and Tumeric/Curcumin for inflammation…

1.  Magnesium.   Muscles require calcium to fire and magnesium to stop firing. The less magnesium you have available, the tighter your muscles get (because they literally cannot relax). The tighter your muscles get, the less magnesium they have available because they eat it up at a higher rate trying to relax.
Tight muscles = not enough magnesium.
Your muscles are locked tight.  The more acute your pain is, the more tightness you have. 
Magnesium is your NUMBER ONE PRIORITY!  If you don’t take in enough magnesium, you can not and will not get better. 

2.  Vitamin B6.  Vit B6 is responsible for two main things:  Nerve function, and the body’s ability to utilize magnesium.  
Fun fact:  Inflammation eats up B6.   So you have a lot of inflammation, you’re short on B6, so you’re extra short on magnesium.
Magnesium is you number one priority, but you have to have enough B6 to utilize all the magnesium you intake, so it’s kind of also your number one priority.  More like an indispensable side kick.

3.  Vitamin D.  Vitamin D is really a hormone that’s at the base of your entire body operation….muscle function, nerve function, immune system function, hormone function, balance, everything.  
Vit D isn’t specific to your facet joint pain/problem, but we need your entire body working as well as possible, and Vit D is a cheap and easy way to make your ENTIRE BODY WORK BETTER so that your local facet joint pain problem can reverse as quickly as possible.  Everything in the body works together.

4.  Vitamin B12 Methylcobalamin.  (MUST be Methylcobalamin, NOT Cyanocobalamin.  If the bottle doesn’t say, then it’s Cyanocobalamin)Vitamin B12 is important for two main things:  Nerve function, and the body’s normal daily detoxification process.
Maybe your on various chemicals or pain killers/drugs, etc, and maybe your system is some amount overwhelmed trying to clean all that out.  B12 Methylcobalamin is vital for that, go through at least a bottle of B12 methylcobalamin. 

5.  Tumeric / Curcumin for inflammation
