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.

Wine drunk in moderation can reduce the risk of developing depression, research finds.

Well, I am doing quite a bit of this with friends and none of us are depressed. Last night was only 3 bottles amongst 3 of us. Sunday will be some more as art galleries are having openings with wine and cheese. Bet your doctor won't use this to prevent your depression from your stroke.

A very pleasurable way to reduce depression risk.
Wine drunk in moderation can reduce the risk of developing depression, research finds.
Moderate alcohol intake can have a similar protective effect on depression as that found for heart disease.
Professor Miguel A. Martínez-González, one of the study’s authors, said:
“Lower amounts of alcohol intake might exert protection in a similar way to what has been observed for coronary heart disease.
In fact, it is believed that depression and coronary heart disease share some common disease mechanisms.”
To reach these conclusions researchers followed over 5,500 people for between 5 and 7 years.
At the start of the study none had suffered from depression and did not have alcohol-related problems.
People naturally drank varying amounts and different drinks, but the most commonly consumed beverage was wine.
The results showed that the lowest rates of depression were seen in those who were light to moderate drinkers.
Light to moderate drinkers had between two and seven small glasses of wine per week.
The researchers adjusted for other factors that could have been important, such as social factors, diet and smoking.
Scientists think some of the protective effects are provided by resveratrol and other phenolic compounds in the wine.
The study was published in the journal BMC Medicine (Geo et al., 2013).
