Why be on the alert for mini stroke warning signs?
Why is it important to know not only the signs of a stroke but also know the signs of a mini stroke?
Why know mini stroke symptoms?
Because these are in fact warning signs of a stroke, and because the chances of having an actual stroke increases dramatically in the days after mini stroke symptoms!
Even though your doctor will NOT find any damage from mini strokes and even from mini stroke symptoms (TIA trans ischemic attack) -- not even if your doctor gives you BRAIN SCAN...
Nevertheless, there are now new BRAIN MAPPING techniques that do show that there is BRAIN DAMAGE from a MINI STROKE!
Here's mini stroke symptoms:
A mini stroke, or a TIA (transient ischemic attack) is caused by a short blood loss to the brain, and the signs of a mini stroke are:
Because the signs of a mini stroke disappear quickly – usually within 24 hours, many people do not take such an episode seriously.
A mini stroke or TIAs is often a warning sign of a future stroke. Why pay attention?
While it is known that a mini stroke is a warning sign of a
likely future stroke, don't panic, because not every person goes on to have a
stroke. But do take preventive action!
Normally, doctors can NOT find any damage from a mini stroke, either through clinical evaluation or with standard imaging (CT or MRI) within 14 to 30 days of a mini stroke.
But new research published in “Stroke,” the journal of the American Heart Association shows that these attacks or mini strokes may not be transient at all.
The researchers found that mini strokes likely DO create lasting neurological damage to the brain!
“We know now that people may look and feel fine, and even standard imaging says they are fine, but they are NOT!” (School of Population and Public Health, UBC)
(Brain Research Centre at Vancouver Coastal Health and the University of British Columbia, Canada)
If you experience any of these 5 signs, call 911 or your local medical emergency number immediately:
Mini stroke warning signs are more “transient” and usually disappear within 24 hour.
Just so you know the difference, here's heart attack symptoms:
Warning signs of a mini stroke or a heart attack can be mild or severe. If you, or someone you know is having any of these signs, call 911 or your local emergency number immediately.
• Sudden discomfort or pain that does not go away with rest
• Pain that may be in the chest, neck, jaw, shoulder, arms or back
• Pain that may feel like burning, squeezing, heaviness, tightness or pressure
• In women, pain may be more vague
SHORTNESS OF BREATH:
• Difficulty breathing
• Cool, clammy skin
For extra assurance after mini stroke warning signs, you my want to add a natural supplement with ingredients shown to decrease risk of blood clots and stroke.
Meet Dr. Harry Elward, whose passion it is to "end heart disease."
Several new studies provide simple but effective ways to improve stroke recovery.
So, if you want to minimize you Coumadin use and avoid eventual dangerous warfarin side effects, here's what to do after having had a stroke:
A study published in the journal Experimental Neurology shows how eating lots of antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables can limit brain damage from stroke and other neurological disorders.
USF/VA neuroscientist Paula Bickford, PhD, and colleagues, found when they fed rats a "preventative" diet that is enriched with blueberries, spinach or an algae known as the phytoplankton spirulina, they had had less brain cell loss, and they also recovered their movement better after they had a stroke.
So eat your greens everyone!! For better stroke treatments after, but also to avoid having to watch for mini stroke warning signs!
These finding affirm earlier USF/VA research showing that diets enriched with blueberries, spinach or spirulina reversed normal age-related declines in memory and learning in old rats.
• Researchers were amazed at the extent of neuro protection that antioxidant-rich diets provide.
And there's more good news:
Dr. Bickford, a researcher at the USF Center for Aging and Brain Repair reported that the size of the stroke was 50 to 75 percent less in rats treated with diets supplemented with blueberries, spinach or spirulina before the stroke.
They think that antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agents in these fruits and vegetables reduce the nerve cell injury and death triggered by a stroke.
They concluded that ongoing treatment with blueberry, spinach, or spirulina reduces cell death (ischemia/reperfusion-induced apoptosis) and cell death due to stroke. (cerebral infarction).
So start making smoothies and eat your spinach!
This is an easy, readily available, inexpensive and safe way to benefit stroke patients, according to the researchers – without dangerous Coumadin side effects.
Avoid having mini stroke warning signs by being pro-active!
We hope you have found our research postings about mini stroke warning signs helpful.
Not only will you regain your health and not have to worry about signs of a mini stroke -- and you will feel better and avoid the real dangers of these medications!
Why? You may not want to follow a warfarin vitamin k diet, or you rightly worry about Coumadin food interactions and Coumadin drug interactions.
Why Try natural Supplements First?
To not worry about warfarin interactions and scary warfarin side effects, you will want to find out about Dr. Harry's top selling l arginine supplement to dissolve existing blood clots and prevent future clots.
Don't forget that warfarin does NOT dissolve existing clots!
You may not be looking for statin alternatives, but arginine will also reduce your LDL or bad cholesterol AND help lower your high blood pressure!
Arginine functions to reduce blood clots, making it an ideal Coumadin alternative, so you no longer have to worry about dangerous warfarin side effects.
Hopefully you have not had any mini stroke warning signs and want to avoid them altogether, naturally! We wish you the best and please let us know of your success.
