Stroke Symptoms and Treatments

Stroke Symptoms and Treatments

A stroke happens when there’s a rupture of a blood vessel in the brain or if there’s a blockage in the blood supply to the brain. The rupture or blockage prevents blood and oxygen from reaching the tissues in the brain. Without oxygen, brain cells and tissue become damaged and begin to die within minutes.

Three Types of Strokes

  • A transient ischemic attack involves a blood clot that usually reverses on its own.
  • Ischemic stroke implicates a blockage caused by either a clot or plaque in the artery. The symptoms and complications of ischemic stroke can last longer than those of a TIA or may become permanent.
  • Hemorrhagic stroke is caused by either a burst or leaking blood vessel that seeps into the brain.

Factors That Make You More Susceptible To Stroke 

  1. Health History. Diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension, obesity, and blood clotting make you susceptible to stroke.
  2. Personal Background. Aging makes you more to have a stroke due to hypertension and other genetic health factors.

Emergency treatment for stroke depends on whether you’re having an ischemic stroke or a stroke that involves bleeding into the brain. Ischemic stroke is treated with Emergency IV medication to improve your chances of survival and reduce complications. The endovascular procedure can also improve outcomes and reduce long-term disability after ischemic stroke. Other Treatment for Stroke may include:

  • Carotid endarterectomy
  • Angioplasty and stents
  • Surgery
  • Surgical clipping
  • Surgical AVM removal
  • Stereotactic radiosurgery

Using HCG to Improve Overall Health

HCG is a substance that is naturally found in a woman’s body during pregnancy. However, HCG is also used for weight loss by burning off excess stored fat while without affecting the muscles and bones. The HCG shots release stored fats that are often the most difficult to metabolize through diet and exercise.

Note that HCG is not and will never be a cure or treatment for stroke. But, losing weight through the HCG diet may reduce your risk of life-threatening diseases including stroke. The HCG program rebalances your metabolism so it is much easier to keep the weight off once you complete the diet. In addition, it will improve your overall well-being.
