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.

Component of Marijuana May Help Treat Anxiety and Substance Abuse Disorders

Would this help your anxiety about not getting to 100% recovery?
The prevalence of GAD(generalized anxiety disorder) after stroke was 28% in the acute stage, and there was no significant decrease through the 3 years of follow-up.

Component of Marijuana May Help Treat Anxiety and Substance Abuse Disorders 

Cannabidiol, a major component of cannabis or marijuana, appears to have effects on emotion and emotional memory, which could be helpful for treating anxiety-related and substance abuse disorders.
A recent review highlights the results of studies that have investigated cannabidiol’s effects on various fear and drug memory processes.
“Cannabis is best known for the 'high' caused by the chemical Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) but it contains many other chemicals with potential medicinal properties, including cannabidiol,” said Dr. Carl Stevenson, senior author of the British Journal of Pharmacology review. “This chemical isn't linked to the cannabis 'high' and is safe for people to use, so it might be helpful for alleviating certain symptoms of these disorders without having unwanted side effects of cannabis.”
