Deans' stroke musings

Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.
My back ground story is here:

Medical Marijuana and Stroke

A more concise writeup than my individual posts.

These are all the reasons I think marijuana should be used. And unless you act now to tell your congressperson to get their heads out of the sand and remove Schedule I classification, when your parents or you have a stroke you will not be able to get the benefits.

1.  What will it take for marijuana/cannabis/weed/mj to be recognized and provided as a therapy for stroke?
2.  Study on marijuana for PTSD moves forward 
3. Cannabis may help stroke recovery 
 4.  Stroke survivors unaware of therapy options for spastic muscles, survey finds 
 5. Tapping Medical Marijuana’s Potential 
 6.  Small Quantities Of Marijuana Protect Against Brain Damage
 7.   A Marijuana Bud A Day Keeps The Stroke Away 
 8.   Cannabis chemical 'helps heart' The cannabis chemical helps ward off heart disease, scientists say 
 9.   Symptomatic therapy in multiple sclerosis: the role of cannabinoids in treating spasticity 
 10.  A cannabinoid type 2 receptor agonist attenuates blood–brain barrier damage and neurodegeneration in a murine model of traumatic brain injury
 11.  Marijuana might cause new cell growth in the brain
 12. Cannabidiol Reduces Aβ-Induced Neuroinflammation and Promotes Hippocampal Neurogenesis through PPARγ Involvement 
 13.  Medicinal Uses of Marijuana: Brain Trauma/Stroke 
Does your doctor know about ANY of these? What are they doing to help you recover  with these?

  1. I told my hubby I want a big old dose of canna oil right up my arse in the event I keel over. He just said whos gonna do that for ya? Maybe I should have that syringe ready. LOL We`ve used it and it definitely has advantages, just not miracles. Now to be able to get a legal card for prevention purposes would be wonderful. Ruth
