We all have heard about someone who had a stroke which is loss of blood flow to a certain part of the brain gets stopped and some brain cells die. But what if the blood flow to the brain just decreased by 25 % because of a fall or whiplash? What would happen to your brain then?
A fall damages the position your neck and spine are in. The impact of the fall squeezes the arteries that goes up thru the sides of the vertebrae on their way to the brain. This amounts to about 40% of the normal blood flow to your brain. When you fall you temporarily twist the mid-back and neck vertebrae causing the arteries to be pinched slightly thereby reducing the blood flow to your brain. If the ligaments are severely damaged in your neck, like in a car accident or whiplash or a fall then, the blood flow to the brain is likely to be reduced.
Here are possible symptoms that lack of blood flow to the brain may cause:
- Severe short term memory loss,
- Alzheimer’s or dementia-like symptoms,
- Vertigo, dizziness
- Digestive problems
- Mild stroke
- Hormone deficiencies
When blood flow is reduced to the brain over a long period of time, the brain tissue weakens or dies. Now these weakened brain tissues are a prime target for deeper problems happening as further stress is placed on brain’s weakened tissues as you get older.
There are natural ways that look at the brain to discover the extent of the reduced blood flow to your brain and preserve your longer term health.
