Hope for reversing stroke-induced long-term disability
“Permanent brain damage from a stroke may be reversible thanks to a developing therapeutic technique, a study has found. The novel approach combines transplanted human stem cells with a special protein that the US Food and Drug Administration already approved for clinical studies in new stroke patients.”

Stimulating brain with electricity ‘boosts stroke recovery’
“Stimulating the brain with electrical current can help boost recovery after a stroke, research from the University of Oxford suggests. The team found patients who were given electrical stimulation alongside rehabilitation sessions fared better than people given rehab alone.”

Stroke Recovery
“Stroke affects everybody differently. Many stroke survivors continue to improve over a long time, sometimes over a number of years. Recovery from stroke involves making changes in the physical, social and, emotional aspects of your life. You will make changes to prevent additional strokes as well as to facilitate your life-long recovery.”

    Good day everyone, i’m *, If getting herpes cure was that easy then why do a lot of people still suffer from herpes?. i was diagnosed of herpes back in 2014 and i was also told it has no cure, i have been leaving with it since then, but i kept praying and doing everything possible to get cured, so i never stopped doing research about finding a cure, i came across testimonies about people getting cured through herbal medication, and i have always believe in herbs and its medical properties, after doing so many research about it i found Dr.breckspeed and i discovered he was a professional in herbal medication and he has also helped many people, i contacted him through his email, we talked and i confirmed he was genuine, i did all what he told me to do, i received the medicine, used it as he has prescribed, and glory be to God almighty i am completely cured, i went back to my doctor to confirm it. Do not be deceived THERE IS A CURE FOR HERPES, doctors might tell you there is no cure but WITH HERBAL MEDICATION THERE IS A CURE and if you need it contact dr.breckspeed01@ gmail. com or phone number (+1 4704820846) contact him and free.

  25. TankTops 143 on November 16, 2020 at 9:10 pm

    I got out of bed one night to get myself a drink of water from my bathroom sink… The second I went to reach for the faucet, I was immediately hit with a severe headache (Not even a warning!) Immediately nauseous and started throwing up. At the same time I felt this rush of intense pain the radiated throughout my ENTIRE body! Then my fingers and left hand got tingly and numb. I laid myself down on my stomach on the bathroom floor, and my words weren’t coming out right. I could kind of talk, but the words seemed like they came out in jerks or studders… I laid there for 25-30 minutes.
    What happened to me??
    I feel as though I have been slowly deteriorating since then, when it comes to eye sight, pauses between words, memory loss, increase in anxiety and agoraphobia. I’m very jumpy and frightened easily…
    I was stupid and scared, and never got myself checked out. I know that is a huge NO NO! But I’m just here looking for a little bit of help 🙂

    BS; it’s the worst thing I’ve ever exspirenced. Why does she have to sound all peppy? She obviously has never had one.

  28. Nightcore Yuno on November 16, 2020 at 9:17 pm

    Chance of heart disease/problem and stroke increases by 113% if you use phone more than 4 hours a day they say….ok now I’m scared cuz i use it at least 14 hours a day and can’t stop it myself.

    My husband just died on June 22, 2020 from a massive stroke. He was everything to me.

    Ludzie którzy będą próbowali zrobić krzywdę twojej rodzinie w tym dzieciom,przejdą przez piekło i zostaną kalekami do końca życia. Wszyscy przeżyją,ty nie będziesz mieć na żadnego wpływu gdyż taka jest ICH wola .

  31. Mimi Solomon on November 16, 2020 at 9:20 pm

    I am struggling to understand this Dr narrative. My mum had a Ischemic stroke four month ago and she is recovering remarkably. Imagine, she’s 80 years old and four month ago she couldn’t move understand anything. She was paralysed on left side etc however, with four months, she can walk and move her hand pretty well. She’s still not speaking like before but she’s trying. Therefore, stroke could change ppl differently but the recovery isn’t impossible.

  32. mweb1 on November 16, 2020 at 9:21 pm

    Brain cells DO regenerate.

  33. Anju R on November 16, 2020 at 9:22 pm

    I recently suffered from a stroke at the age of 18. The cause is still undetermined and it’s bothering me . My blood pressure is fine and I have no other health conditions. Testing revealed my Protein C mechanism is damaged. So why did I have the stroke, what triggered it?

  34. Tony Jones on November 16, 2020 at 9:24 pm

    It’s been a year I’m still fucked up. Is weed bad?

  35. Fran D a b on November 16, 2020 at 9:24 pm

    Saved my dog from a stroke with the strongest anti inflammatory in the world. Cannabis. Hes now reserved most of the effects from the stroke. This is my personal story and my dog is still here now annoying me when I russle a bag of food while eating lol. Dont put flea treatment on dogs. The heavy metals kill them and can lead to stoke or death in high enough amounts. Heavy metals are in everyone and everything. Do your own research and see

  36. The Female Thunderbirds nerd on November 16, 2020 at 9:26 pm

    I *REALLY* don’t wanna have a stroke. Heat stroke or a stroke caused by smoking or a brain aneurysm bursting sounds like a nasty think think about.

  37. Oceana Madani on November 16, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    She didn’t say anything about how it affects your brain. Misleading title

  38. Stay Positive 2019 on November 16, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    Oh wow, I’ve had a a VP shunt put in my brain for hydrocephalus and had to have five revisions because of dead train tip would get pinched Westwood lock the fluid coming through it and there’d be a lot of swelling around the brain. So that I watch this video I wonder if a lot of my mental problems and memory issues and all that could we do from it being damaged back when it would swell up or the surgery could happen. What do you think?

  39. Julius Adeleke on November 16, 2020 at 9:28 pm

  43. mweb1 on November 16, 2020 at 9:32 pm

    No correlation with smoking. ALWAYS eat quality HIGH FAT.

  44. Starla Grady on November 16, 2020 at 9:33 pm

    I live alone and suffered many symptoms gradually that were frightening. Thankfully I never lost a limb but it led to complete mental change and many neurological problems described here.. BC of people who needed to discredit me for their own personal sadism problems, said I didn’t have one and passed that around as truth which caused immense problems on it’s own and has impeded my recovery. I am left with symptoms unseen to people who don’t care about anyone but themselves. I’m at least thankful that I survived and they have to answer to lies they tell since strokes are easily seen on imagining. I truly believe the stress others put us under can cause strokes. I hope unmerciful and selfish people find out for themselves on every account.

  45. bob on November 16, 2020 at 9:33 pm

    does that mean I have a stroke cus every time I say “what?” Lots when someone talks to me, or I say “I don’t understand” I DONT WANNA DIE 😭😭😭

  46. Jeremiah Kirby on November 16, 2020 at 9:34 pm

    I’m a 28 year brain tumor survivor. An MRI showed that I had two strokes and I laughed and thought of one thing!

  50. AO Tone on November 16, 2020 at 9:36 pm

    I just turned 25 July 15th I had a stroke The day after Christmas. I got put into an induced coma missed New Years I had 2 brain surgeries and was fighting pneumonia at the same time!!! It took about a day for them to realize I was having a stroke. It happened bc my artery split in my neck from being hit in it by accident. I had to relearn how to walk and use my left arm and hand I’m still re learning I use to be a lefty . I use to be very talented at basketball too. Multi talented. I practice basketball everyday . Learning to dribble and control the ball with my left had 500 dribbles everyday and I try to run everyday. My hand is nowhere near where it used to be. But the more I work on it the better it gets. I’m going to start using my left hand to do everything soon. And I wanna be one of the first to be able to get perfectly normal off a stroke recovery so we can cut the fear of not being the same out after surviving the stroke. There’s so much I wanna do and sometimes I do fear I won’t be able to be the dare devil I was before but life wouldn’t be life if I didn’t give it my all. And be one who wants to overcome anything that thinks it can defeat me. I’m getting better slow to me bc I know what I was capable of … but fast to everyone else. They call me a miracle child too. I say we all are. If your reading this and you had a stroke and survived your a miracle and you can be perfectly fine again if you just work at it and focus . Oh and she lied about the brain not healing itself because the brain has neuroplasticity look it up. Out of repetition your unaffected side will start to assist your affected side. I’ve been doing my research I hope people see this, because I’m serious about getting back to normal. I’m not going out like this. Your not either I promise you.
