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.

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.

Relationship between coffee consumption and stroke risk in Korean population: the Health Examinees (HEXA) Study
How many research articles on the benefits of coffee will your doctor have to ignore before doing ANYTHING about creating a drink protocol? I bet that will never occur. You probably have to risk drinking coffee without your doctors prescription. But only for women in this study. http://nutritionj.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s12937-017-0232-y
Although coffee consumption is
increasing rapidly, the results of previous studies regarding the
association between coffee consumption and stroke risk have been
conflicting. This was a multi-center cross-sectional study that aimed to
evaluate the relationship between coffee consumption and stroke risk in
Data were obtained from the
Health Examinees (HEXA) Study, which involved 146,830 individuals aged
40–69 years. Coffee consumption was categorized as none, < 1 cup/day,
1 to < 3 cups/day, and ≥ 3 cups/day. We used logistic regression
models to examine the association between coffee consumption and the
risk of stroke while controlling for potential confounders and performed
After adjusting for age and
various possible confounders, high coffee consumption was associated
with a 38% lower odds ratio for stroke in women (none vs. ≥ 3 cups/day:
OR, 0.62; 95% CI 0.47-0.81; P for trend < 0.0001). No significant association was found in men (none vs. ≥ 3 cups/day: OR, 0.84; 95% CI, 0.66-1.07; P
for trend = 0.1515). In analyses stratified by covariates, an inverse
association between coffee consumption and stroke risk was most evident
among healthy women who were younger, non-obese, non-hypertensive,
non-diabetic, non-smokers, and non-alcohol drinkers.
Our results suggest that
higher coffee consumption may have protective benefits with regards to
stroke risk in middle-aged Korean women.
