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:

Red Wine-Filled Chocolates [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

I'm sure your doctor will put this in your diet stroke protocol, except use dark chocolate.  For all the benefits of dark chocolate in these 7 posts and these 56 on red wine.  If your doctor hasn't anything specific and good to say about red wine and dark chocolate you don't have a doctor, you have a fossil of a doctor, fire them. I would skip the heating of the wine and just drink it direct.



Cook Time



  • 16 dates, chopped up
  • 3/4 cup red wine
  • 1 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil


  1. Place the dates and the red wine in a small saucepan. Warm the wine until it’s just hot to the touch and then turn off heat. Allow the dates to soak for 20 minutes.
  2. Purée the dates together with the red wine until they’re smooth.
  3. Stir in the cocoa powder. Allow the mix to cool.
  4. While the mix is cooling, temper to chocolate chips together with the coconut oil.
  5. Pour this mixture over the interior walls of the chocolate mold, coating every crevice. You may need to pour the chocolate back out and pour it in again to make sure all surfaces are covered. You will still have chocolate left over to pour over the bottom of the chocolates.
  6. Allow the chocolate to harden.
  7. Scoop the date-wine filling into a piping bag or a zip-seal bag. Cut the tip off and pipe the mixture into the prepared molds.
  8. Allow the filling to firm up a little bit in the refrigerator.
  9. Pour the remaining chocolate over the bottom of the molds.
  10. Set them in the refrigerator to firm up before you eat them.
