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.

The Type of Singing That Boosts Mood, Immune Function and Reduces Stress - choir

But I bet your doctor will never even know about this as stroke rehab.
http://www.spring.org.uk/2016/04/the-type-of-singing-that-improves-mood-immune-function-and-reduces-stress.php
One hour of this type of singing can improve mood, immune function and more…
Singing in a choir for only one hour can improve mood, reduce stress and even boost immune proteins, a new study finds.
The largest improvements in mood were seen among those suffering with the greatest level of depression and lowest mental wellbeing.
The research involved 193 people whose lives had been touched by cancer and who were members of five different choirs.
Dr Ian Lewis, one of the study’s authors, said:
“These are really exciting findings.
We have been building a body of evidence over the past six years to show that singing in a choir can have a range of social, emotional and psychological benefits, and now we can see it has biological effects too.
We’ve long heard anecdotal evidence that singing in a choir makes people feel good, but this is the first time it’s been demonstrated that the immune system can be affected by singing.
It’s really exciting and could enhance the way we support people with cancer in the future.”
Dr Daisy Fancourt, the study’s first author, said:
“Many people affected by cancer can experience psychological difficulties such as stress, anxiety and depression.
