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:

FDA Warns Against ‘Stiff Bull’ Coffee with Viagra-Like Ingredient

Don't do this on your own, but see the possibilities of Viagra here:

14 posts on Viagra here.

None of this will ever be standard stroke rehab. The whole point of this post is to get people thinking about out-of-the-box possibilities.
Nothing kills the mood quite like a public health safety warning.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued an advisory regarding the consumption of not-so-delicately named Stiff Bull Herbal Coffee, a roasted coffee product containing an ingredient similar to the active ingredient in the erectile disfunction drug Viagra.
The FDA said it examined the coffee product through international mail shipments, finding desmethyl carbodenafil, an erectile disfunction alternative to the popular prescription drug sildenafil. Desmethyl carbodenafil is a chemical compound and unlisted ingredient that the FDA recently advised consumers not to use for the purpose of sexual enhancement.
This section of the FDA advisory regarding the Stiff Bull coffee reads a bit like a Viagra commercial. (Go ahead, picture a smiling, grey-haired man driving along a coast in a vintage rag-top or golfing with his buddies as you read this as a voiceover:)
This undeclared ingredient may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs such as nitroglycerin and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Men with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates.
Stiff Bull, a company registered in Maryland that has distributors in nine states, according to the company’s website, says its coffee is augmented by a proprietary blend of tongkat ali, maca root, and guarana. The company’s slogan is “made for adults who want to maintain relationships.”
The FDA said the warning was part of a larger effort to educate consumers about the growing trend of dietary supplements or other food promoted as beneficial to sexual performance or health, despite the fact that they may contain “potentially harmful hidden ingredients.”
