Learning how to prevent a stroke could save your life. It’s not difficult or expensive. So you could ask why more people aren’t taking action. Mostly, because they don’t know.
A stroke is a blood disorder. Or, more correctly, when the blood flow to the brain is interrupted. If the artery the blood is flowing through is blocked, then the condition is medically known as an ischaemic stroke. This is the most common type. The other type is the haemorrhagic stroke, which happen when an artery bursts in your brain, often because the artery walls are weakened.
It’s obviously rather important that this doesn’t happen, as with no blood flow, the brain cells are starved of oxygen and nutrients, so die. The area of the damaged brain is known as a cerebral infarct.
So the important thing is to ensure no blockages occur and no artery bursts.
Strokes generally occur in both men and women, and it is more normal after the age of 55.
Blood clots tend to be the main cause of strokes. They may form in arteries that have become narrowed. Sometimes, they can break away and become lodged in smaller arteries.
It is useful to know that your body always tries its utmost to keep you healthy. Nature has mastered the art of health care perfectly. So if you are a candidate for any health disorder, including strokes, then it is because you are doing something that creates it.
Most humans today are far from healthy, leaving their bodies to struggle manfully with little natural support.
Medicine has little in the way of dissolving blood clots. Instead they use agents such as rat poison to thin your blood. This also prevents natural clotting, so when you cut yourself, the wound may bleed profusely, even dangerously so.
Preventative measures are obviously healthy choices. If you know how to prevent a stroke, you are likely to live a more healthy life as well as a longer one. So what causes blood clots?
- sitting too long such as on long flights or prolonged bed rest
- deep vein thrombosis
- a genetic inheritance
- medications especially the oral contraceptives, hormone therapy and breast cancer meds
Solutions to some of the above are obvious, but the diet is probably one of the most important.
Animal protein and processed food don’t give your body a chance to do what it needs to be healthy. There are few essential nutrients in either and both make our bodies more acid – a sure sign of poor health leading to destruction.
If you eat an abundance (that means no limit) of fresh produce, you will be ensuring your body has the most nutrients essential for it to do its job of keeping you healthy. That means both clot formation or blood vessel weakness are unlikely to occur.
You’ll also find other health issues disappear. And an increase in energy.
If there is a familial weakness of strokes, or if you are taking hormone medication, then it is a good idea to address these issues. An appropriate solution is to seek out a health modality that addresses the cause of the problem, rather than just masking the symptoms.
Homeopathy works by treating you as the individual you are, working to unwind all the problems you have accumulated in your life. Good homeopathic treatment can draw a line under inherited health issues as well as obviate the need for hormonal treatment.
Treatment is not for life, as it clears away the causative factor. Learning how to prevent a stroke may lead you on a journey of empowerment that restores balance and harmony to your life.
