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:

Effects of singing bowl sound meditation on mood, tension, and well-being: An observational study

I had lots of tension, fatigue and depressed mood while in hospital. Anger didn't start till much later when I finally realized how incompetent my doctor and whole stroke medical world was. Bet this never makes it to your hospital.
Journal of Evidence-Based Complementary & Alternative Medicine, 10/07/2016
In this study, the authors aimed to investigate the effects of sound meditation, specifically Tibetan singing bowl meditation, on mood, anxiety, pain, and spiritual well–being. This meditation type might be particularly useful in diminishing tension in individuals who have not previously practiced this form of meditation.


  • A total of 62 women and men (mean age 49.7 years) participated in this study.


  • Following the sound meditation participants reported significantly less tension, anger, fatigue, and depressed mood (all Ps <.001) as compared with pre–meditation.
  • Also, participants who were previously naïve to this type of meditation experienced an essentially greater reduction in tension compared with participants experienced in this meditation (P < .001).
  • The study found that feeling of spiritual well–being significantly increased across all participants (P < .001).
  • As per the outcomes, Tibetan singing bowl meditation might be a feasible low–cost low technology intervention for reducing feelings of tension, anxiety, and depression, and increasing spiritual well–being.
