Stroke


 

After a stroke your body is left with damaged brain tissue. Because of this damage, you have a good reason to consider our non-invasive Regenerative Cellular Therapy. We have helped many patients with their post-stroke symptoms.

A stroke has the ability to damage brain tissue and be a catalyst for high blood pressure. Those who have experienced a stroke need to be extra attentive to their health to ensure that their bodies are on a fast road to recovery.


WHAT IS IT?

A stroke occurs when a part of the brain loses blood supply (ischemic stroke) or when a blood vessel within the skull bursts and bleeds around the brain (hemorrhagic stroke). The most common type is the ischemic stroke, which results in blood-deprived brain cells. Whichever part of the brain is affected also affects the body part it controls.


STROKE CAUSES

Stokes may be a natural cause of narrowing arteries due to age, but there are certain factors that can accelerate the process, such as:

  • Smoking/tobacco use
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Obesity
  • High cholesterol levels
  • Diabetes
  • Excessive alcohol intake


STROKE SYMPTOMS

The most common symptoms of a stroke are:

Sudden numbness or weakness in the face, arm, or leg (usually occurring on one side of the body)

  • Speech difficulty
  • Difficulty walking
  • Sudden confusion


STROKE RISKS

Most stroke risks are hereditary or a result of a natural process, but there are others that can be controlled; these include:

  • High blood pressure
  • Smoking/tobacco use
  • Poor diet and nutrition
  • Inadequate physical activity
