Dramatic Recoveries from Serious Brain Injuries Prove Fish Oils Omega-3 Brain Health Effectiveness
by Paul Fassa
He was so much more dead than alive that the physician who eventually advised the Ghassemi family on using fish oil, Dr. Michael Lewis said, "For all intents and purposes, he was dead on the scene. I'm looking at the reports, and they report a Glasgow Coma Score of three. A brick or piece of wood has a Glascow Coma Score of three. It's dead."
Bobby was placed in intensive care in a coma with all the apparatus possible to keep him a breath from death. His brain was flooded with blood and a hole had to be put into his skull to relieve some of the pressure.
The hospital's physicians commented that his brain injury was so bad, it was a wonder that he was alive enough to be in a coma. They told Bobby's father and mother it was doubtful he'd be more than a vegetable if he came out of the coma. He'd be unable to speak or recognize his family.
Time for an unusual intervention
After 10 days, Bobby was still comatose but stable. His dad, Peter Ghassemi, felt more should be done than maintaining stability in a coma. So he started asking around to old Army buddies and was led to Army colonel Dr. Micheal Lewis.
Dr. Lewis recommended fish oil based on an early episode of a West Virginia coal miner who barely survived a mining accident with severe brain damage. His condition had resembled Bobby's.
The 26-year-old miner, Randall McCloy, was "on death's doorstep," according to Randall's hospital neurosurgeon, Dr. Julian Bailes. He and the other doctors then decided to forgo the normal wait and see after Randall was stabilized in intensive care.
They decided to take a radical course from normal AMA “standard of care” protocol and put Randall into hyperbaric therapy to increase oxygen to his brain while administering fish oil through Randall's feeding tube.
After a brain injury, even as some recovery is noticed, the brain cells continue dieing from progressive inflammation.
Dr. Bailes knew that the brain needs to feed on omega-3 fatty acids to heal inflammation as well as stimulate brain and nervous system cell growth. After discussing Randall's condition with fish oil omega-3 experts, Dr. Bailes determined that 20 grams fed through Randall's feeding tube daily might bring him around.
20 grams is 10 times more than what a healthy person would supplement with fish oil. Dr. Lewis explained the Dr. Bailes intervention with Randall to Bobby's dad, who thought the whole thing strange.
But then he realized that three months after the mining accident, Randall McCloy left the hospital walking and talking, a very unusual event for serious brain trauma victims.
At first, the hospital staff resisted Peter's urging to try the fish oil therapy on his son Bobby. Their viewpoint was that the McCloy incident was just one anecdotal episode and not worth pursuing, perhaps even risky. But Peter persisted strongly and they finally yielded.
At age 20, Bobby smiled as he recalled his high school graduation where he took off his cap and waved it to the cheering students. His dramatic recovery had left him with some weakness on the left side of his body and partial difficulty walking, but he's back.
Dr. Lewis, who recommended the fish oil treatment, sees no reason to not continue using it for brain trauma victims. He asserts that the brain has to recover on its own, and omega-3 is vital for its self regeneration.
If the hospital physicians would have won out with their adherence to “standard of care” protocol despite the “anecdotal” evidence, Bobby could have died or at least been in a vegetative state if he had survived, with lots of follow-up therapy to create more work for the medical industry.
Peter, Bobby's dad, would have had no recourse after his urging because the medical mafia's consensually agreed upon standard of care protocols protect them from liability regardless of adverse effects and deaths.
But whenever an alternative health practitioner with a higher cure rate than conventional loses a patient, the medical mafia hollers murder – literally.
Even after two successful applications of omega-3 fish oil for extremely brain damaged victims who recovered rapidly, the medical establishment only equivocates and considers the possibility of someday exploring omega-3 fish oil "scientifically" for brain traumas.
That could be enough time for Big Pharma to “scientifically” create a synthetic omega-3 substance with side effects that can be patented for profit. Then omega-3 would become part of “standard of care” for treating brain trauma vicitms.
