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.

Want to Reduce Your Risk of Having a Stroke? Eat These 8 Foods

This is pretty much fucking worthless, guidelines, not protocols. No links to research. I added my posts. I bet you are getting nothing better from your doctor and stroke hospital.

There are two approaches to diet most people use when figuring out how to reduce their stroke risk: focusing on what foods to eliminate and figuring out which ones to eat in abundance. Many probably go with the former. Since the condition is responsible for one out of every 20 deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), it’s no wonder avoidance is so appealing. Though this is a completely normal way to go about building a better diet, it can soon leave you feeling as though there’s hardly anything you can eat.
Because no one should subsist on a diet of boneless, skinless chicken breasts and undressed lettuce, we think it might be more helpful to highlight what foods you should add to your regular rotation to reduce your risk. You’ll see some pretty expected choices, but others might surprise you. The next time you stock up on groceries, make sure these foods are on your list.

1. Tomatoes

Lycopene in tomatoes reduces stroke risk by more than 50%


Tomatoes heated for just 30 minutes boost the level of the cancer fighting antioxidant, lycopene by 62-percent.

Each 28-gram serving of whole grains per day was associated with a 5% reduction in overall death risk and a 9% reduction in death from cardiovascular causes,

3. Beans and legumes

4. Eggs

eating one egg per day may reduce the risk of stroke by as much as 12%

5. Red wine

All the great things studies claim drinking red wine can do:

Ask your doctor if one glass of red wine a day can provide all these benefits

1. Lower the risk of breast cancer.
2. Raise levels of good HDL cholesterol.
