    I had the exact same stroke at age 36… That is true that there is only around a 2 percent survival rate… He was, as I am left on earth for a reason… This was a very inspirational video for me

    Please check out Darqueeta Banks on Facebook. The nearly same situation almost at the same time, April 2015 brain stem stroke pronounced braindead but woke the next day. They cancelled her rehab treatment saying she has progressed as far as possible. I’m reaching out to anyone who can suggest ways to help her. Even just to help her learn to talk again. God Bless, maybe you could send us a little of your miracle. So inspired by Christian. It reminds me tobe grateful for every moment. Darqueeta says she still loves being alive and wouldn’t choose to give up. I have always had a persistent feeling from the moment I found out that somehow I am part of her recovery, I just have no idea what that is supposed to look like. I hope this finds you.

    Bummer that his brain appears to be basically shot to Hell. Per chance there is a glimmer of hope. Cheers!

    Lost my dad this way 6 weeks ago…they removed the clot, but just a few hours later a second one closed the basilar artery forever. He told me about dizziness and vertigo a few days prior to the stroke and was convinced this was due to his new glasses. I believed him and I’m shattered. Watch out for you loved ones.

    My sympathy, does he have trouble breathing in his sleep?

    My mother has been in that situation for 9 months now. I wish there is something I could do. I massage hands, talk to her, make her laugh. She cannot move anything, cannot speak, on a treck, cannot swallow. I’m desperate for help

    My husband had a stroke, and was having disappointing recovery. I was able to research brain plasticity and so many topics on this site, and I desperately wanted to find something he could use to stimulate the neurons in the brain, but he couldn’t use so many of the things, because of a brain stent. he still was having problem with drop foot and kept falling, but from all the research I did, i found a comment of a stroke patient testifying of how Dr. Adebola helped her recover from stroke completely, after disability of 2 years. With his roots and herbs healing power. So i also contacted Dr. Adebola via email address, and he gave us some instructions and also courier some roots and herbs (herbal medicine) via TRANSWORLD COURIER COMPANY. With a manual for assumption, which we followed accordingly. And today is the 9th day of assumption. And my husband is already walking. Please let’s help anyone around us, going through this suffering. You can also contact Dr. Adebola via email address:, Thanks for reading.

    Per chance his brain would be basically shot to Hell, or would it? Additional episodes follow. Cheers!
