VITAMIN A & VITAMIN E - TAKEN TOGETHER, THEY ARE "THE HEALING VITAMINS"
A few weeks ago, I remembered something I took (daily, after breakfast) before my accident. Vitamin A & Vitamin E. My accident happened more than ten years ago and my brain injury caused me to forget every single thing about "how to live". Suddenly, out of the blue, I remembered "the healing vitamins".
A long time ago, I learnt of the healing benefit of these two vitamins taken together. My flatmate and his friend had a cycling accident. My flatmate had quite bad cuts/grazes on his face (he needed stitches; it was quite a mess) and he was worried he'd have permanent scarring. He went to a local pharmacy (here in Melbourne, Australia). The pharmacist sold him two tubes of cream: one contained vitamin A cream, the other Vitamin E cream.
The pharmacist assured him that if he applied the two creams at the same time, several times a day (until the wounds were healed), he'd have no scarring. My flatmate followed these instructions. I saw with my own eyes that his deep, unpleasant-looking injuries resolved in a few weeks, and left no scarring at all.
So, I've now bought Blackmore's Natural Vitamin E 500 IU, and Blackmore's Vitamin A (available in only one potency). During the past few days, I've been taking one of each (along with my other vitamins and supplements) after breakfast.
Within 7-8 hours of the first dose, I noticed a subtle difference in my overall feeling of well-being. Something just felt "right".
Now, a few days later, I'm noticing a little more "strength" in the right side of my face. The right side of my face has very slight palsy (caused by the brain injury). I have trouble breathing from the right nostril; my mouth feels slightly "lower" on that side (it looks perfectly okay but I can feel the "weakness" in that side of my face; I had never experienced this feeling before having a brain injury).
I hope these initial signs are the promise of much good brain healing to come. Brain healing means total body healing. I wish I'd remembered these two vitamins immediately after my accident.
I guess I would encourage anybody struggling with chronic health issues to take "the healing vitamins". Especially those living with Acquired Brain Injury.
