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.

Stroke symptoms: This is how much exercise you should do a day to prevent the condition

Well shit, I was in fantastic shape when I had my stroke, exercise probably caused my stroke.  The week before my stroke I was on a 6 day whitewater canoe trip in Canada, class III+. Dog River, Ontario(23 miles and dropping 1050 feet with a 1.5 mile portage around a 120 ft. waterfall). We only portaged 5 times. 3 years post-stroke at a physical I had a resting heart rate of 54 at age 53, meaning I had the cardiovascular fitness of an athlete, even with doing no exercise for 3 years. I was in shape.

But if you want to reduce the risk of a stroke happening in the first place, the Stroke Association suggests being more physically active.
Physical inactivity can increase your risk of stroke, heart disease, becoming overweight, developing high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol and diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
It recommends going on a brisk walk, taking the stairs, and doing whatever you can to make your life more active.
But whatever physical activity you do, the charity recommends doing it for a certain amount of time.
It states on its website: “Try to get a total of at least 30 minutes of activity on most or all days.

Eating a healthy, balanced diet, can also help prevent a stroke happening.
If you’ve had a stroke, you should talk with a registered dietician to learn how to plan and prepare meals and snacks - and one thing in particular the National Stroke Association recommends is not to miss breakfast.
It states: "You will feel healthier, be less hungry, and snack less.”
Other things it recommends is moving the salt shaker off the table, eating high-fibre foods, switching from white pasta and rice for whole grain equivalents, and keeping a bowl of fruit or cleaned vegetable snacks handy.
Keeping a food diary can also help, so you can keep track of what your are eating, and tricking your brain into using smaller plates and bowls can help you stay in control of your portion sizes.
