brain, awesome in its intricacy and power, is still largely
a mystery to modern science. With more than 10 million nerve
cells it is the home of all that we know and feel, the generator
of every physical action and response. Yet, unlike other cells
in the body, brain cells once damaged are not good at repairing
themselves. And they can be damaged quite easily – by infection,
injury, or oxygen starvation. Should any part of the brain go
without oxygenated blood for more than a few minutes the affected
cells will pack up permanently – the body has suffered a Brain
of a stroke vary a great deal, depending on which part of the
brain has been damaged, but symptoms range from a sudden loss
of speech or movement to dizziness, blurred vision, confusion,
and unconsciousness. They may last only a few hours: this is
called a Transient Ischemic Attack (T.I.A.). If the symptoms
don't disappear, this is a full-scale stroke.
two different kinds of stroke. The most common is an ischemic
stroke, caused by a blood clot that blocks a blood vessel or
artery in the brain. The other, less common, is a hemorrhagic
stroke, caused when a blood vessel in the brain ruptures and
spills blood into the surrounding tissue. There are various
ways that the flow of blood to the brain can be slowed or stopped.
Sometimes a Clot (Thrombosis) forms, blocking the flow of oxygenated
blood. Or a blood clot (Embolism) which formed somewhere else
in the body breaks free and ends up blocking an artery to the
brain. In other cases, blood bursts through the wall of a weak
artery into the brain (Haemorrhage), building into a clot.
our brain cells have so many connections between them that healthy
cells can often take over the function of damaged cells so that
we hardly know that anything has gone wrong. Half of stroke
survivors return to full health, but much depends on how much
damage has been done to the brain, as well as on the aftercare
A cerebral infarction occurs as a result of a blocked artery.
The arteries become blocked over the years and this produces
slow blood flow to the brain. Cerebral haemorrhages usually
occur as a result of weak arteries or aneurisms in the brain
that rupture. High blood pressure is the cause of weak arteries
in most cases.
Factors for Brain Stroke
Some stroke risk factors are hereditary. Others are a function
of natural processes. Still others result from a person's lifestyle
and diseases e.g. Diabetes, Hypertension, Obesity, Smoking,
Alcoholism, Head Injury , Cerebrovascular Accident (CVA ) etc.
— The chances of having a stroke approximately doubles for
each decade of life after the age 55. While stroke is common
among the elderly •Heredity (family history) and race — Risk
is greater if a parent, grandparent, sister or brother has
had a stroke. African Americans have a much higher risk of
death from a stroke because blacks have higher risks of high
blood pressure, diabetes and obesity.
(gender) — Brain Stroke is more common in men than in
women. In most age groups, more men than women will have a
stroke in a given year. However, more than half of total stroke
deaths occur in women. At all ages, more women than men die
of stroke. Use of birth control pills and pregnancy pose special
stroke risks for women.
stroke, TIA or heart attack — The risk of stroke for someone
who has already had one is many times that of a person who has
not. Transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) are "warning strokes"
that produce stroke-like symptoms but no lasting damage. TIAs
are strong predictors of stroke. A person who's had one or more
TIAs is almost 10 times more likely to have a stroke than someone
of the same age and sex who hasn't. Recognizing and treating
TIAs can reduce the risk of a major stroke. If you've had a
heart attack, you're at higher risk of having a Brain Stroke,

must be continually supplied with blood through the arteries.
If the blood supply stops for some reason, the result is very
serious. Disruptions of blood flow to the brain are known as
two types (i) Cerebral Infarction (ii) Cerebral Haemorrhage.

of blood to the brain. The second basic type of stroke is cerebral

in agonising headache, sometimes followed by loss of consciousness.

vary depending on whether the stroke is caused by a clot or
bleeding. The location of the blood clot or bleeding and the
extent of brain damage can also affect symptoms.
If you are around it is imperative that you recognize stroke
symptoms quickly in order to get the victim the help they need
as soon as possible. Brain cells begin to die as soon as a stroke
occurs. The faster you get to a doctor, the more likely the
stroke sufferer will survive. FAST is an easy
acronym to remember and will help you identify symptoms quickly.
1 - F (Face)
Ask the person to smile for you. If one side of the face droops.
2 - A (Arms)
If the person cannot raise both arms, or one arm flops downward,
there may have been a stroke.
3 - S (Speech)
If the person cannot repeat a simple phrase, or their voice
slurs or sounds strange.
4 - T (Time)
If you see any of the signs listed above, it is an emergency
and essential that you see a doctor immediately to avoid long-term
Apart from the clinical symptoms as discussed above ,medical
history of the patient certain Laboratory Investigations are
also required such as Pathological Blood Test , Biochemistry,
CT Scan, MRI Scan, EMG, NCV etc. to confirm the diagnosis of
Brain Stroke for the patient.
It is vital that you commence regular aerobic exercise - swimming,
walking or anything safe and gentle that you feel comfortable
with. People at high risk for stroke should not smoke and should
eat a low-fat diet and not take contraceptive pills.
Risk Factors of Stroke
Prevent High blood pressure, High cholesterol, a Sedentary Lifestyle,
Obesity, the abuse of stimulant drugs such as amphetamines,
smoking, use of birth-control pills, and stress. Certain lifestyle
related risk factors can be controlled to reduce the risk of
blood pressure — High blood pressure is the most important
controllable risk factor for Brain Stroke
smoking — In recent years, studies have shown cigarette
smoking to be an important risk factor for Brain Stroke. The
nicotine and carbon monoxide in cigarette smoke damage the cardiovascular
system in many ways.
Contraceptives – If combined with cigarette smoking greatly
increases the risk of Brain Stroke among women.
— Diabetes is an independent risk factor for stroke. Many people
with diabetes also have high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol
and are overweight. This increases their risk even more. While
diabetes is treatable, the presence of the disease still increases
your risk of stroke.
of Brain Stroke
Stroke can affect people in different ways. It depends on the
type of stroke, the area of the brain affected and the extent
of the brain injury. Brain injury from a stroke can affect the
senses (such as eyesight, touch, awareness of body positioning),
motor activity (movement of arms or legs), speech and the ability
to understand speech. It can also affect behavioral and thought
patterns, memory and emotions. Paralysis or weakness (the inability
to move the arms or legs properly, or at all) on one side of
the body is common.
As one side
of the brain controls the opposite side of the body, a stroke
affecting one side will result in neurological complications
on the side of the body if affects. For example, if the stroke
occurs in the brain's right side, the left side of the body
(and the right side of the face) will be affected, which could
produce any or all of the following:
on the left side of the body
inquisitive behavioral style
If the stroke
occurs in the left side of the brain, the right side of the
body (and the left side of the face) will be affected, producing
some or all of the following:
on the right side of the body
cautious behavioral style
Patients of stroke should be hospitalised and given the appropriate
Treatments : Alternative treatments can be marvellous adjuncts
to conventional treatments with stroke patients. Several techniques
can help restore mobility, circulation, and ease other symptoms
associated with stroke.
Homoeopathy has a very effective role in treating the cases
of Stroke and Paralysis. I've number of cases treated successfully
with Homoeopathy. Physiotherapy as an accessory therapy is also
very helpful to be used . Remedies like Aconite, Belladonna,
Arnica , Causticum, Natrum Sulf etc. has given wonderful results.
30x Is a remedy which – by stimulating your adrenal gland- can
help the body to repair itself very swiftly. "If this is given
early, it could make a major difference to recovery from stroke",
taking it at 10-minute intervals until medical help arrives.
stroke a constitutional remedy is usually be prescribed to bolster
general health, and beyond that there are many homeopathic remedies
– depending on the symptoms – which can support other treatments.
Among them are the snake and spider poison remedies which relate
to paralysis and bleeding. Agaricus may be helpful in the relief
of pain, but, as with all homeopathic remedies, accurate prescription
by an experienced professional is very important.
To prevent strokes, your diet should be rich potassium, magnesium,
vitamin E, and the essential fatty acids contained in fish oils.
Some studies suggest that selenium may also protect against
stroke. Fresh fruit and vegetables.
Eat a low
fat, salt and cholesterol diet, exercise regularly; keep to
your ideal weight; monitoring blood pressure and cholesterol
levels; and do not smoke. Avoid alcohol, caffeine and smoking.
Patients with stroke needs careful handling cases may take long
time to recover , first 48 to 72 hrs are very crucial which
decides the fate of the patient. Awareness regarding the factors
predesposing Stroke can minimize the occurrences and if at all
it occurs timely treatment can safe gaurd the fatal casualty.
Mrs. Dheer 65 yrs suffered Brain Stroke and was hospitalized
. After the discharge from the hospital she was in a vegetative
state where she had almost lost her Speech, developed Hemiplegia,
Lost control of Urination and Stools. She was declared incurable
by the hospital and neurologists and nothing can be done now
for her was the only phrase the family members were to hear
from everywhere. Then the family was advised to try homoeopathy
and that's how they came to me. After taking her complete case
history and analyzing the symptoms I gave the homoeopathic medicine
Causticum. With in a weeks time she started showing signs of
improvement in the form of started getting feeling and sensation
about the Urination, she could make people understand that she
was about to urinate. This was the turning point for the family
towards hope and faith in homoeopathy. After the continuous
treatment of more than 6 months she had improved tremendously
when she developed full control over her urination, stools and
started making sound of words though which was not fully understandable
that time. With other medicines given time to time according
to the symptoms and constitution she was fully cured and she
visited my clinic on her own feet after a period of 18 Months
of treatment with full recovery of all her symptoms and now
she could speak also properly. She thanked Homoeopathy for saving
her from the misery of vegetative life which she and the family
members were compelled to accept as her fate before starting
Homoeopathic treatment. Now the Dheer family is a staunch follower
of homoeopathy and believe that Homoeopathy Ensures Health Safely
