Use the labels in the right column to find what you want. Or you can go thru them one by one, there are only 12876 posts. Searching is done in the search box in upper left corner. I blog on anything to do with stroke.DO NOT DO ANYTHING SUGGESTED HERE AS I AM NOT MEDICALLY TRAINED, YOUR DOCTOR IS, LISTEN TO THEM. BUT I BET THEY DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET YOU 100% RECOVERED. I DON'T EITHER, BUT HAVE PLENTY OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTOR TO ANSWER.
Deans' stroke musings
Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all thetrillions and trillions of neuronsthateach daybecause there areeffective 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.

Neuroprotective mechanisms of astaxanthin: a potential therapeutic role in preserving cognitive function in age and neurodegeneration
Since this is a carotenoid you could get a two-fer if you are Cacausian.
Grimmig, B., Kim, SH., Nash, K. et al. GeroScience (2017). doi:10.1007/s11357-017-9958-x
(AXT) is a carotenoid with multiple health benefits. It is currently
marketed as a health supplement and is well known for its antioxidant
capacity. Recent evidence has emerged to suggest a broad range of
biological activities. The interest in this compound has increased
dramatically over the last few years and many studies are now applying
this molecule across many disease models. Results from the current
research are beginning to come together to suggest neuroprotective
properties including anti-inflammatory, anti-apoptotic, and antioxidant
effects, as well as the potential to promote or maintain neural
plasticity. These emergent mechanisms of actions implicate AXT as a
promising therapeutic agent for neurodegenerative disease. This review
will examine and extrapolate from the recent literature to build support
for the use of AXT in mitigating neuropathy in normal aging and
