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.

Proof That Intense Cardio May Help You Live Longer

If you don't think you can do this try this. Why didn't your doctor tell you about this?

Proof That Intense Cardio May Help You Live Longer

If you knew that simply adding more cardio to your life would help you live longer, would you work out more?
A new study published in Science Advances shows that that exercise endurance (a sexy term for intense cardio that increases your breathing and heart rate) may help keep our telemores in tact. Telemores are the protective “caps” on the ends of our DNA chromosomes which keep us young.
And just to underscore this study’s significance, as we age — and with added effects of stress and disease — our telemores structures start to break down. So, finding ways to keep our telemores long and strong give us a better chance of living a longer life.
To prove that exercise could add on years to our life, a research team had ten healthy and young volunteers cycle for 45 minutes. They found that the amount of telomere transcripts (which control telemores) increased in volunteers post-workout.
The experiment results also support recent theories that exercise and diet (another potential influence on telemores) could delay or reduce the effects of aging. (Wrinkle prevention? Sign me up!)
If you're interested in increasing your lifeline, add more endurance to your workout routine. Endurance exercise includes everything cardio — from swimming to dancing — at an intense level for extended periods of time (hello romp session!).
In addition to longevity, exercise also keeps us sharp as a whip, influencing everything from our brain’s blood flow to cognitive functioning. In fact, research shows that specific cardio strengthens specific mental functions. For example, ballroom dancing helps with memory, or Tai Chi can help with problem solving.
If this new research won’t get you to get out there to break a sweat, we don’t know what will.
