The family of a teenager, who suffered severe brain damage following a hit-and-run accident, is claiming that consumption of fish oil was responsible for his miraculous recovery.
Grant Virgin, who suffered from a torn aorta, a traumatic brain injury, compound bone fractures and spinal fracture after being struck by a car, was told by the doctors that he wouldn't be alive by next morning, News.com.au reported.
However, the boy's family vowed to save their kid, who underwent multiple surgeries remained in a coma with severe brain damage, and rubbed progesterone cream on their son, and soon saw him waking up and speaking simple words and phrases.
The Virgins thought about giving their son fish oil, after learning that the brain's cell wall is partly comprised of the same omega-3 fatty acids, and put him on a regimen of 20-gram-per-day.
The teenager is still a long way from making a full recovery, but the family claimed that he is progressing by the day.
