    I had a pretty serious cerebral stroke three years ago – caused by A-Fib. Balance was a main problem – working on these exercises every day is absolutely essential to getting that balance back.

  6. Pam Graves on February 28, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    Very good excercises for anyone who needs to work on balance. Thanks for all of your tips and advice.

  7. Noah Hunter on February 28, 2021 at 9:50 pm

    I was discharged in August 2019 after being in hospital for nine whole months in total. My stroke affected my left side, and my vision and my cognition were also affected. I would not have known where to start writing this, and it’s taken a while, but I’m assured it’s all good practice and will help me. (But I do apologies for any mistakes! …spelling and grammar….etc.) They say patience is a virtue, and that may actually be more true after stroke. However, I do see improvements every day. Stay strong and just talk about how you feel. I had numerous areas of my brain that were affected – I become very emotional and I cry sometimes. I was not depressed, just a little bit ‘wazed’ off with my brain.
    My journey all began back in November 2016. I had been feeling very tired for quite some time and my husband came in from work one evening to find me very drowsy and not very responsive. He called for an ambulance. Shortly after I had a seizure and then another four more on the way! I had a blood test and they found I was severally anemic, with a blood count of 23, so I needed 4 units of blood, which needed to be done very quickly as otherwise, I would not have survived. This did wonders for me and I was in hospital for around another week, then discharged with plans to do further investigations as an outpatient. After been home for around a week, I had another seizure and was taken back into the hospital. I had a few more, which led up to my first stroke on 12th December. I spent all of Christmas in hospital and was making a good recovery up until 31st December. On New Year’s Eve, I had my second stroke, which affected another area of my brain. This knocked me back, but I carried on with my recovery. I was starting to get quite down, but then my first grandchild told me about herbal remedy of one Dr Odia who was said to have cured Stroke. I was in hospital and so I had something to focus on. After a week or so I was moved home. We had to contact the Herbalist for his herbs. I was doing really well for a couple of months as I had just starting to take a couple of steps. While I was at home, I was visited by a Different Strokes volunteer as they heard I was recovering in months after taken the herbs. they where also a stroke survivor. I was inspired! So, when I was well cured, I joined the Different Strokes ‘family’ (#dsfamily). The peer support is fantastic and I am now even involved in running the Leeds Central group! I am fully cured. I survived strokes and I’m here to tell the tale! Contact Dr Odia via email (

    After a stroke, we will start the patient’s brain regeneration process in 7-14 days. International Institute of Quantum Genetics.

  15. Ruby .G on February 28, 2021 at 10:06 pm

  16. Wayotankè on February 28, 2021 at 10:06 pm

    Just what I was looking for!! You guys are amazing!!

  23. Alistar James on February 28, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    Great videos! Please increase the volume of your speech audio. The intro is nice and loud but then your voices are pretty soft in comparison.

  24. Senen Soberano on February 28, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    Maybe you should also have actual stroke patient as a model. You are both normal and easier for you to move through your demos

  25. BloodWolf on February 28, 2021 at 10:26 pm

  28. atSHADOWBAT on February 28, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    I wish you guys were helping my father. He has been in therapy for almost two years because of falling due to Parkinson’s. They emphasize on strength training but don’t do much balance training.

  31. Our Wood Chip Garden - Morgan on February 28, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    i have a stroke, i shall try these later. (belt)

  32. Geena W on February 28, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    These exercises are fantastic and extremely beneficial! A family member had a mild stroke 90 days ago and is now doing these exercises. His balance and gait have improved tremendously! These exercises are different (and probably better) than the ones my family member was doing with his physical therapist. Thank you!
