    I had a stroke in 2019, we should be proud of us who did survive and grateful to everyone who helped us (physicians, therapists, familly…) but from my point of view it is either stay in bed or wake yourself up to get better, it’s only up to you and that strong courage is to me the willing to live your life the best you can 🙂 I wish you’all the best, perseverance and reps are the key. I myself am going to be an MD now, and I hope one day it’ll be my turn to help others like they did .

    dad was hit in the head 3 times. first at 6 years old, second at 20 and third at 76, he is still alive and well, with no brain whatsoever. he looks and is disgusting. i thought that he will recover, so the doc said, but he is just like a vegetable, a parasite waiting to be fed and washed. he is eating my life. everybody says: oh how cool they are still alive, but nobody talks about the burden on the caregivers who give their lives away so an old fart without a brain can breathe like a protozoa one more day.

I’m scared his children like behavior be forever.

    I am 34 years old, a wife to Bakers and mummy to Ava and George. I was a lawyer but have been a stay at home mum for nearly nine years now, which is slightly scary. I have loved it and I would count it as a job because I have worked harder at home than I ever did anywhere else. What happened to me? I was going to say that I have recently become disabled. It’s actually five years ago, now so it isn’t that recent, but it still only feels like yesterday that I felt I had a burst AVM. A lot of other people have explained it a lot better, so I am not even going to attempt if you want to know more type ‘Arteriovenous Malformation’ into any Internet search engine. In search for a better health I came across people talking of Dr. Adebola on the internet, on how he uses herbs to treat so many chronic diseases, I was reluctant to give his herbal fomular a try. At first it was like a miracle to me and my loved ones, I later realized that it was the miracle powers in his herbs that help my brain cells to function normal, after 5 years I now have my health in order, I now do everything I couldn’t do while I was disabled, am so grateful to God and Dr Adebola, I can’t thank him enough so I pray his nature’s knowledge be multiplied to help reach out to more people in need of a stable health.
    I want people to think about the HEALING powers in nature’s herbs, If you have already had a stroke then I appreciate this might be too late but carers and loved ones should think about this in case something similar happens or had happened to them!
    Reach out to Dr. Adebola, message him via email, or whatsapp via: +19292018600
    Best of luck.

    I had two aneurysms/haemmorhagic strokes at the age of 4 and a half in 1969 in Burbank California. I wish this would have been presented to me then. This may have helped me. I am completely independant, but it have been nice to try this experiment. David Barban

  15. Bob Bobbi on November 15, 2020 at 8:53 pm

    THANK YOU for this video! I have aphasia after a left sided stroke, and this is the first time I have heard it described so clearly! I have lost friends because they just backed off and would not "walk with me" through it. I have PTSD from the stroke..(also had back to back seizures at the same time) and I get so frustrated when the thought is there in my head but it will not come out of my lips. It is a true daily fight.

  16. PathwaySounds on November 15, 2020 at 8:54 pm

    This was educational…i have a new found compassion for those going through this. God bless.

  17. Kelvin Burks on November 15, 2020 at 8:56 pm

    Me too a survivor of stroke which effected my whole right side. Started therapy after two weeks. Changed my life completely so farther change was needed. While in therapy I started a new whole plant food diet. 1. First weeks I walk with no walker. 2.week my right side improved. I gained use of my right arm. 3. 4th Discharged home for homecare for two week, voice slowly came back. 4. Began outpatient care all movement improved. 5. Returned to normal 85% balance is the issue. I owe it all to the whole plant food which my medicine.

  18. Lynn Morrison on November 15, 2020 at 8:56 pm

    I didn’t smoke or drink alcohol. I had high blood pressure, but I didn’t take it seriously. At age 66 it happened. No headaches, no symptoms. Got up on a nice December morning, and before I knew it the Stroke hit. I am slowly learning to walk. Thankfully my right side is OK, and my Memories are good, but my Left side was paralyzed. MY Left arm is still having a hard time coming back, but is gaining some movement. My Medicare ran out, and now living off Medicaid and had to leave Hospital which had great Rehab and move to an approved Healthcare which Rehab is limited compare to hospital. Medicare paid 20 days of it and now Medicaid which ate up all of my income, savings, 401K. Lost all of my property to help pay for my care, but Medical bills from hospital I am responsible. I don’t have a life, just an existence. IWhen I leave Healthcare, I have to live with my sister. Under her rules.

    You can listen to the songs on my YouTube that I have written. I also struggle with some aphasia from a right thalamus stroke 3 years ago but I am able to sing pretty effortlessly and clearly. When I use voice to text to do this comment, for example, I must really concentrate on each word. Music is a gift from God!

    Stroke, including hemorrhagic stroke, can be cured by God’s mercy,

    How to cure stroke patients:

    1. First of all, hypentension should be cured, i.e. to clear away all those AGEs (advanced
    glycation end products), especially glucosepane, from blood vessel, including excessive
    calcium and other waste products.

    2. To clear away those inhibitory molecules from brain so that endogenous adult stem cells
    (ASCs) can be triggered for regeneration, i.e. differentiation, dedifferentiation and proliferation
    for repair of damaged tissue.

    All glory belongs to God !

  21. 羅積康 on November 15, 2020 at 8:58 pm

    God’s mercy nano-medication definitely can effectively treat Stroke and reverse it because nano-medication can
    help those endogenous adult stem cells (ASCs) of brain, i.e. hippocampus and hypothalamus, to clear away
    those so-called inhibitory molecules and regeneration of neurons can be conducted.

    This is not a fairy-tale story but fact.

    My father (55) died because of basilar artery occlusion, cerebellar infarct. If anybody is interested to study this case I will provide you the reports. The doctors who treated him couldn’t tell the exact cause of the stroke. I hope that someone will help us in knowing the cause.
    He woke up at 1: 40 am and complained of dizziness and he couldn’t stand on his own, he talked for around 15 minutes and went completely unconscious after that. We shifted him to the hospital within 20 minutes. The local doctors suggested us to shift him to a big hospital which is a three-hour journey. We shifted him to a big hospital by 5: 50 am. Those doctors did an MRI scan and told us that cerebellum is damaged. We kept him on a ventilator for 1 day and he died after that.

    Fish oil and coconut oil cause brain cell doing more studies. Fish oil causes brain regeneration as well. see sago mine disastter victim. And his recovery. Use the weak sid. The brain is trying to learn a new path. A doctor told me ..if u can walk or move u will do better. Be patient. Try to mode or safely walk. Nurses will tell u try 25 minutes. I told a stroke friend work to wo minutes it releases another hormone. Sorry had stroke can’t all remember if growth hormone or trstosterone..

    Like, even though your brains are hosed, you’re still awesome. Way to go, babes!

  29. 羅積康 on November 15, 2020 at 9:09 pm

    God’s mercy nano-medication is the only medication for stroke, ischemic as well as hemorrhagic.
    Stroke can be cured because nano-medication is the real stem cell therapy, i.e. to help those
    endogenous adult stem cells to clear away inhibitory molecules so that its regenerative
    potentials can be turned on for regeneration and repair of damaged tissue.

    From brainstem, SAH (subarachnoid hemorrhage), ischemic strokes, human tests are
    entirely successful and get cured.

    All glory belongs to God !

    God bless!

  30. S C R on November 15, 2020 at 9:10 pm

    At:1:33, The usual things our Dr’s tell us, that will give us a higher risk of stroke are : High Blood-pressure, High cholesterol, Diabetes, Smoking, no or low exorcise in our lives, of which I had none of these issues in my life and still had a stroke, in March 2015 at the age of 51. I asked my Dr; what caused my stroke : he said : I don’t know, it’s just one of those strokes that just happens to some people, and I/we can’t give you a reason for it (this answer made me think hard about my life and where it was going)

    So I say to you people out there, "Please Think About Your Life, And Where Is It Taking You : Heaven Or Hell ?" and I say to you "Please" get right with God Almighty and His Holy Son Jesus/Yeshua Messiah, seek Him while you can and repent of your sins, because you do not know what tomorrow will bring you :

    Will it bring you : Life more abundantly in Paradise (John 10: 9-11) through faith in Jesus/Yeshua Messiah; Or :

    Will it bring you : Death and the second death in hell everlasting (Revelation 21: 7-8)

    I pray you will seriously consider what I say here to you to day, and get right with Jesus/Yeshua Messiah while you still can, Amen.

    My mother just had 2 strokes I am trying to take care of her any help is grateful

  32. Misty Bloodworth on November 15, 2020 at 9:12 pm

    My mom suffered a massive stroke and could only speak one or 2 words, if that, but she could sing. She passed away 355 days after her stroke. She was doing better everyday until 6 months after when she started having bad seizures. I was her caregiver and it was so traumatic to see what she was going through. I felt so alone throughout that year and I fought so many battles with the medical field to get her the help she needed. God bless all of you who have suffered a stroke or who care for someone who has. Please reach out to me if you feel you need someone to talk to. Great video. God bless

    Suffered a hemorrhagic stroke a month ago, was sent to the hospital the same night and sometime after was given the news after an MRI. My right side doesn’t function right and while I can use it my right arm and leg still feel deadened. This took most of my drawing skill, which was soul crushing. It wasn’t a stroke on the level of these people but it was something big and an impact on my life. I’m only 21, the experience is debilitating on my mind and spirit. It’s uplifting to hear stories from other people, to see such courage in the face of such hardship. It’s easy to laugh and cry about your situation, but it takes guts to look on the bright side and be happy despite such transgressions.

  41. kevin Dieck on November 15, 2020 at 9:25 pm

    This video is really good at helping you understand what its like having a stroke. I didn’t have all the symtems of a stroke but I had quite a few. I got to the hospital on time. But my directions on how to care for myself afterwards were mostly up to me to find out about like thru videos like this one.

    My mother had a massive stroke of the left brain on labor day. She is still in the hospital, but they are already talking about discharging her. I don’t think she’s ready for that. I know i am not ready. She cannot talk or even swallow.

  44. Diane Greene on November 15, 2020 at 9:27 pm

    My sister and I have a genetic clotting disorder that was diagnosed after she had an ischemic stoke and I an arterial blood clot. I think it explains a lot about deaths of others in my family. I’m trying to stay alive for sister but if she dies first I’m right behind her. No one should live this life.
