Stroke occurs when the blood supply to part of your brain is interrupted or severely reduced, depriving brain tissue of oxygen and nutrients. Within minutes, brain cells begin to die. It is is a medical emergency! Immediate treatment is crucial. Early action can minimize brain damage and potential complications. The great news is that strokes can be treated and prevented.
Stroke risk rises with age, and there is much you can do to lower your risk. A heart-healthy diet and lifestyle is essential. This includes:
If you smoke, stop.
Do something active for at least 30 minutes a day on most days of the week.
Lose weight, if you are overweight.
Eat a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and lowfat dairy products and reduce consumptions of meats, sweets, and refined grains (such as white bread or white rice).
Eat less salt (sodium).
Limit the amount of alcohol you drink.
Immediate action has a few important benefits. For one thing, you could find out that you are not actually having a stroke. Another possibility is that you could be in the early stages of a major stroke, and emergency medication can open up the blocked artery and nip the problem in the bud. The right medical care and drug therapy can prevent additional TIAs and strokes in the future. #stroke #strokecare #strokerehabilitation #stroketreatment #cure #mediciane #tips #advise #specialist #braindoctor #brainspecialist #strokespecialist #physician #winnielimkhoo #health #nutrition #diet #exercise #manila #philippines
