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:

This ‘Superfruit’ Improves Memory and Cognitive Function - Blueberries

I bet this is not in your hospital diet protocol.
So we have cranberry research from 2002, blueberries from 2013 and beets from 2010. Which food is in your dietary protocol? Or is your doctor, hospital and stroke association so fucking incompetent that they have done nothing about this for 15 years? And you are paying them money?

This ‘Superfruit’ Improves Memory and Cognitive Function - Blueberries

The group eating the superfruit had improved memory and better access to words and concepts.
Eating blueberries could help improve memory and cognitive function, a new study finds.
Researchers recruited 47 older adults with mild cognitive impairment.
Some of them had the equivalent of a cup of blueberries in powder form each day for 16 weeks.
Others had a placebo powder.
Professor Robert Krikorian, who led the research, explained the results:
“There was improvement in cognitive performance and brain function in those who had the blueberry powder compared with those who took the placebo.
The blueberry group demonstrated improved memory and improved access to words and concepts.
Our new findings corroborate those of previous animal studies and preliminary human studies, adding further support to the notion that blueberries can have a real benefit in improving memory and cognitive function in some older adults.”
A second study examined older people who thought their memories might be declining, but who did not have a diagnosis.
They were split into four groups with comparison groups for fish oil and various other combinations.
Professor Krikorian said:
“The results were not as robust as with the first study.
Cognition was somewhat better for those with powder or fish oil separately, but there was little improvement with memory.”
It could be that the blueberries are better for people with some impairments and not so effective for those who are more healthy, Professor Krikorian said.
The study was presented at the at the 251st National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS).
