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:

Forgot aspirin, replaced with Guinness on this trip.

I managed to not pack my aspirin bottle for this week. So rather than walk one block to Walgreens I am using the Guinness replacement. Don't do this or listen to me, I have no medical training. And since I'm on the 325 one rather than low-dose I assume I need 2-3 pints a day.

Guinness could really be good for you

A pint of the black stuff a day may work as well as a low dose aspirin to prevent heart clots that raise the risk of heart attacks.

  1. And I quote a spokesman for Brewing Research International:
    "We already know that most of the clotting effects are due to the alcohol itself, rather than any other ingredients.

    So we "know" the effects are due to the alcohol, yet there's a difference between stout and lager? Another established medical "fact" debunked.

    Also, I think Guinness actually has a slightly lower alcohol content than lagers.
