Stroke Prevention and Care
For prevention of stroke, doctors strongly recommend to exercise more, adhere to the principles of healthy eating and stop unhealthy way of life. Smoking and alcohol are said to increase the risk of developing the disease to a very great extent. For that reason, it is very important to get rid of these two bad habits. Sleep is important for the prevention of stroke. A night’s sleep should be not less than seven hours a day.
Overweight and high blood pressure are reasons to pay attention to the health. At a blood pressure of 140 / 90 mm Hg and a large body weight, you should regularly check for cholesterol in the blood. For the analysis, the blood is taken from a vein. In order to prevent stroke, doctors advise all those who are over twenty years old to check cholesterol at least once every five years, and middle-aged and old people each year.
Scientists have named a drink from the hips (the fruit of a rose) as the best preventive measure against stroke. In accordance with data obtained as a result of a number of studies, with daily use of this drink, the risk to brain areas is reduced by 17-20 percent, even for people who suffer from excess weight. Due to its composition of large amounts of vitamin C, the drink lowers blood pressure and cholesterol levels in the blood.
The drink also has anti-inflammatory properties. Nerves should be protected because they cannot be restored. That’s why it is very difficult to adhere to stroke treatment. So, you have to treat this disease only in the hospital according to the type of attack and the causes of its development. There are two main areas in the treatment of stroke. One is the treatment of the effects of the disease and the other, prevention of the risk of re-development.
