Jessica’s Story: A Stroke Survivor

Jessica’s Story: A Stroke Survivor

As a fitness instructor, Jessica Diaz never thought she’d face a stroke—especially at such a young age. But after teaching two morning classes, she felt a shooting pain travel down the left side of her body. After a visit to the Emergency Department, Massachusetts General Hospital doctors determined that Jessica had a stroke and was lucky to be alive. Further testing revealed that the stroke had been caused by a small hole in the heart, which had allowed a blood clot to travel to her brain. As a young and active mother of two, Jessica worked with a team of Mass General doctors to not only repair her heart, but determine a treatment plan to minimize future health risks.

    Thank you for sharing! I had almost the same experience. I had my stroke when I was 33. I was a triathlon coach and after my stroke learned how essential oils could help me with recovery.

    I had many TIA’s before my full stroke. Some of my stroke symptoms were vertigo and vision loss. I told my story on my youtube channel of what is was like before during and after.

    My Friend suffered from many symptoms like sudden and severe headache, difficulty in speaking, blurred vision. He was diagnosed with Clot in the brain. After using various allopathic medicines he had no relief. Then he used Gotu Kola Capsules, Arjuna Capsules, Chandraprabha Vati and Curcumin Capsules of Planet Ayurveda for natural treatment of blood clotting and he got relief from this problem. Now he is happy with her health. All thanks to Planet Ayurveda.
