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.”

    Hello. I had two CVA’s/cerebral strokes/aneurysms in 1969. I was 5 years old. I never smoked, never drank alcohol, never took drugs in almost 50 years that it happened to me. I was 3 weeks comatose.I laughed when you said" the best case scenario for strokes, is not to have one"". I would not have thaught of that alone. At least, you’re funny! Good tape. Thanks,David

    Who tells you that neurons can’t be regenerated? You’re out of date already.

    Real stem cell therapy is to help those endogenous MSCs (mesenchymal stem cells)
    to remove so-called inhibitory molecules so that its regenerative potentials can be
    therefore turned on and regeneration of specified cells can be achieved.

    I’m a Stroke Warrior! 10 years ago, I was in a car accident which do to my seat belt rupture my neck artery releasing blood clots. My damage brain was a scene of a massive stroke. And, then, I got stubborn and strengthen and practice every repetitive movements dozen times. I took a nap. This doctor doesn’t know how it feels to be victorious over a movement. I can ride my horse over a pole. I can talk with a stranger. I can hug my daughters. This is powerful!

  18. David Barban on October 29, 2019 at 11:47 am

    I had two hemmiplegic strokes/CVA at the age of 4 and a half. I love what you are saying t 4:13-4:4:14: "we can all agree that the best way to avoid a stroke is: not smoking. You know what? at the age I had my strokes, I didn’t smoke, and don’t to this day. I allways eat healthy…but good advices anyway.

    Title is so misleading. Should be "What everybody knows about Strokes".

  26. LaShannaBanana on October 29, 2019 at 11:52 am

    New research shows that the brain indeed heals itself. It takes time. Cognitive issues comes back slowly and when this starts to happen, understandable language follows. This video is outdated! Don’t let insurance pin you on a corner with that “plateau” nonsense! The brain is a mystery but indeed heals with time. The areas that take longer or do not heal, well the brain works hard to reroute signals. For those with dominate left side brain impairment, RESEARCH exercises to get that right side brain working! Language and Speech are locked in the right side but since we never used that side to communicate it is latent in responding to signals. There are exercises to get those signals to connect on the right side of the brain. There are also ways to bypass damaged areas on the dominate side. Language is written, heard, spoken and seen! You need to get these senses firing on all cylinders (as in stimulate all senses related to speech and language) and it will come around. My father suffered a massive stroke 1/12/19. His only symptom was immediate vomiting followed by speech impediment. We drove him to the hospital and arrived in 10 minutes because we knew something was wrong and I was still on the phone with 911 waiting for them to dispatch when I finally got into the car to drive him myself. He was assessed at memorial Herman Katy Texas and given the shot. He was life flighted to Houston medical center within 45 minutes of arriving at the Katy location. Upon arrival he was sent in for surgery to remove the clot in the left side of his brain. Remember TIME IS BRAIN! His mobility has come back in leaps and bounds however he is a talker and has sever aphasia and apraxia. He is on antidepressants. RESEARCH the benefits of antidepressants on stoke victims!!!!!!!! Read read read and be there for your loved ones through the journey. It takes grit, patience and time! God bless

  37. G&W Pigs on October 29, 2019 at 12:09 pm

    Today, the left side of my face was numb, and so was my left arm, but not as bad. I had also had a headache earlier. Then, about a half an hour ago, me left leg was kind of numb. Should I be worried?

  38. Bjorn Burgers on October 29, 2019 at 12:15 pm

    I might die

  39. AshPlays on October 29, 2019 at 12:15 pm

    No correlation with smoking. ALWAYS eat quality HIGH FAT.

  42. peterlhs18 on October 29, 2019 at 12:22 pm

    I first have numbness on my right arm. Seen a doctor and referred to a Cardio specialist. After test the specialist cant tell me what happened to me. I have since lost my vision and brain damage. I was disappointed furious that a doctor specialist cant tell me it’s a stroke.:((((((((

  43. Eazy_Lifeb TV on October 29, 2019 at 12:22 pm

    Stem cells!

  44. Jhon Xd on October 29, 2019 at 12:26 pm

    This happen to my teacher

  45. Kevin Moore on October 29, 2019 at 12:26 pm

    I’ve had extensive neurosurgeries for brain cancer, and have an increased risk of stroke from surgeries, and radiation for recurrences. How is my chance of these extreme cardiovascular events impacted by those procedures?

    When will MDs actually learn about true nutrition, not from a goverment pyramid which leads to misery.

  48. knuftobor on October 29, 2019 at 12:27 pm

    I just recently had several strokes and I learned that the brain can heal itself. The brain not healing is what they thought but now they have learned that it can. Knowing that helped me to walk again without a cane or walker. Get the book "Stronger After Stroke". It’s very helpful if you or a loved is recovering from a stroke. In short, as soon as there is any kind of movement, start to increase exercise of the effected side as much as possible. Use it or lose it.

  49. Jack Roblox on October 29, 2019 at 12:29 pm

    Wow Stroke and Heart attack are the same thing Problem Heart attack and stroke’s Problem is That The Blood Blockage

  50. Daniel Blaha on October 29, 2019 at 12:30 pm

    Eat healthful nutrient rich foods, avoid high sugar and high fat and exercise. Got it!
