A note about Signs and Symptoms of Stroke
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
Strokes are the "brain version" of a heart attack, so to speak, and they occur when vital blood and oxygen supply to the brain is cut off, either because a blood vessel gets blocked, in which case it is an ischemic stroke, or because a blood vessel bursts, in which case it is a hemorrhagic stroke.
Persons who are suffering a stroke may find that they have sudden and very intense headaches. They may experience serious dizziness. There could be weakness or numbness in one arm or leg; one could even lose the ability to move them. Another set of possible symptoms is the loss of balance and coordination.
When an attack occurs, the affected person may also encounter certain serious signs and symptoms of stroke, such as difficulty swallowing, drooling, vomiting, and seizures.
Partial or more severe loss of vision in one or both eyes may be experienced, while some may have blurred vision instead. Speech problems, such as having difficulty in talking, is another possible symptom.
In the longer term, many victims suffer adverse stroke effects too, and some of these include coma, paralysis, speech problems, as well as mental issues, such as dementia. Some stroke sufferers lose their ability to speak. In addition, some victims become paralyzed on one side of the body, or lose their ability to move one side of their face. Some of such paralysis may be permanent, although recovery from these stroke effects is also a possibility, given time and effort.
Strokes are a serious medical condition and victims require immediate professional attention. Delays may bring about irreversible damage, and often even death. If you or a loved one experiences these signs and symptoms of stroke, please treat the situation seriously.
Of course, prevention is the best antidote for strokes, and nothing beats an overall healthy diet and lifestyle. For more information on this ailment, read the other related stroke pages.
