IS A STROKE? When the blood
supply to the brain is disturbed in some way and brain cells are starved
of oxygen causing some cells to die and leaving other cells damaged or
dead it's call a STROKE.
strokes happen when a blood clot blocks one of the arteries (blood
vessels) that carries blood to the brain. Brain cells are starved of
oxygen causing some cells to die and leaving other cells damaged when the
blood supply to the brain was disturbed in some way. This type of stroke is called an inschaemic stroke.
Transient ischaemic attack (TIA) is a short-term stroke that lasts for
less than 24 hours. The oxygen supply to the brain is restored quickly,
and symptoms of the stroke disappear completely. A transient stroke needs

can be affected in quite different ways. This partly depends on which area
of the brain is damaged, because different parts control different
abilities such as speaking, memory, swallowing and moving. The most common
signs of a stroke are weakness, paralysis or numbness of the arm and leg.

much alcohol increases the risk of a stroke.
The symptoms of a stroke depend on what part of the brain and how much of the brain tissue is affected.
- Stroke symptoms usually come on suddenly—in minutes to an hour.
- There is usually no pain associated with the symptoms.
- The symptoms may come and go, go away totally, or get worse over the course of several hours.
- If the symptoms go away completely in a short time (fewer than 24 hours), the episode is called a transient ischemic attack (TIA).
- A third of all strokes occur during sleep, so people first notice the symptoms when they wake up.
- These are the common symptoms of stroke:
- Weakness in the arm or leg or both on the same side: This can range from total paralysis to a very mild weakness. Complete numbness or a pins-and-needles feeling may be present on one side of your body or part of one side of your body.
- Weakness in the muscles of the face: Your face may droop or look lopsided. Speech may be slurred because you can't control the movement of your lips or tongue.
- Difficulty speaking: You can't speak, speech may be very slurred, or when you speak, the words sound fine but do not make sense.
- Coordination problems: You may seem uncoordinated and stumble or have difficulty walking or difficulty picking up objects.
- Dizziness: You may feel drunk or dizzy or have difficulty swallowing.
- Vision problems: You may develop difficulty with vision, such as double vision, loss of peripheral (side) vision, or blindness. (Blurred vision by itself is not usually a symptom of stroke.)
- Sudden headache: A sudden, severe headache may strike like "a bolt out of the blue." Some people have called this the worst headache of their lives.
Loss of consciousness: You may become unconscious, stuporous, or hard to arouse and could die.
STROKE HERBS TREATMENT
Stroke is a brain attack. It is much like a heart attack, only it occurs in the brain. Like a heart attack, stroke is a medical emergency. Do not wait or hesitate to call for emergency medical help...
HERBS STROKE CURE
A stroke is a "brain attack" that happens when a part of the brain experiences a problem with blood flow. This disruption in blood flow cuts off the supply of oxygen to the cells in that part of the brain, and these cells begin to die...
STROKE HERBAL CURE TREATMENT
Stroke is the major form of cerebrovascular disease, or CVD, a term that sometimes is used interchangeably with stroke.
STROKE CURE ACUPUNCTURE HERBAL
The effects of a stroke depend on which part of the brain is injured, and how severely it is injured. Strokes may cause sudden weakness, loss of sensation, or difficulty with speaking, seeing, or walking.
ACUPUNCTURE HERBAL FOR STROKE
About 85 percent of all strokes happen because not enough blood gets to the brain. Blood flow stops when an artery carrying blood to the brain becomes blocked.
