Our DD fell off the railings at the grocery store (the ones that separate all the cash register lanes) and hit her head on that hard cement floor. She had a big bump on her head, was fussy, exhausted, refused to eat (even ice cream), fell asleep early and then woke up vomitting. I took her to the ER and her CT scan is clear, so she's on limited duty for a few days.


I felt I had to rule out a serious brain injury, so I went ahead with the CT scan (although I was concerned about the radiation).


Any suggestions for counteracting the radiation?  Would love all your ideas!!!


Here are some things we've done so far:

- Green tea

- Green tea mints

- Seaweed (she's hit or miss on this though)

- Daily iodine drops

Thank you!
