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.

WHY SEX IS BETTER FOR YOUR BRAIN THAN SUDOKU

You have to go 1/3 down in the link to get to this section. Your doctor is probably not prescribing sex as part of your recovery, What the hell is the matter with her/him?

The best non-food sources of nourishment for your brain are good sleep, regular exercise . . . and great sex.
However, according to the statistics, we seem to be having less of it — on average we have sex fewer than five times a month, compared to six-and-a-half times 20 years ago, according to the National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles.
Yet numerous studies have linked regular sexual activity to emotional well-being, reduced migraine pain and even a lower risk of prostate cancer.

As a form of exercise, an enthusiastic session between the sheets is roughly equivalent to 20 minutes of doubles tennis or walking uphill, 33 minutes of golf on a driving range, 40 minutes of yoga or 19 minutes of light rowing.
In fact, the British Heart Foundation suggests 30 minutes of sex daily is as good for you as walking the dog.
And research is now showing that sex provides a ‘triple-whammy’ of benefits by combining a workout for the heart and lungs, the release of hormones that could lower stress and the production of new brain cells.
Then — for women — there’s the added plus of a toning effect on the muscles in the pelvic floor.
Certainly, orgasm triggers increased blood flow around the body, which keeps the tissues and organs healthy, giving the brain an extra boost of oxygen and nutrients. Although younger couples might get a real exercise hit from active sex, generally speaking few of us would engage in this kind of sex regularly enough to glean aerobic benefits.
However, in today’s fast-paced world, it may be that the calming, soothing effect and feeling of connection that occurs between two loving people during sex is better for your brain than almost anything else.
