Hi everyone! This is Kelly - your Nutrition Coach and Brain Health Professional on a mission to teach you how to get a better brain!
In today’s podcast, I sat down with Mark Tullius - a former ivy league football player and MMA fighter who is now an activist for TBI and CTE to hear about his experiences with multiple concussions, what prompted him to stop fighting, and how he turned things around for himself.
We also talked about concussions in sports, why they were not taken seriously in the past, what you can do if you suspect a loved one may be dealing with a brain injury, and the ravages of CTE - Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy… a progressive and fatal brain disease that results from repeated brain injuries.
If you have kids in contact sports or have sustained a concussion yourself, you don’t want to miss this!
