Introduction to Strokes

There are basically three kinds of strokes:
1) Ischemic Strokes (blood clot or other obstruction, heart failure causes low blood flow, etc.)
2) Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) (mini-stroke, blocks artery for short time)
3) Hemorrhagic Strokes (broken blood vessel or uncontrolled hypertension)

An interesting fact about strokes is that Coumadin (aka Warfarin Sodium) eats away at the blood vessels in the brain and can actually cause a hemorrhagic stroke. But other things can also cause a hemorrhagic stroke such as genetics, a serious fall, etc. Because Coumadin can actually cause a hemorrhagic stroke, a person subject to ischemic strokes has a couple of options to help prevent strokes using natural substances.

First, they can use a mixture of Coumadin and natural enzymes (such as nattokinase, etc.). When doing this, however, it is critical to continue using the ProTime test. Furthermore, the transition should be done in small steps over a period of time to make sure the ProTime score does not go out of range. This may even involve cutting Coumadin pills in half.

Second, they can do the transition, but continue the transition until the patient is completely off of Coumadin.

For those with hemorragic strokes, they can take the vitamins A, C and E (especially E) to help heal the broken blood vessels.

It is important to let your doctor know what you plan on doing before you do it.

Next, natural treatments that have helped stroke victims who have already had some brain damage include high dose oxygen, herbs, vitamins, electromedicine, etc. Curcumin, for example, is an herb or spice that can help repair stroke damage. However, because it is an anti-oxidant it can throw off the ProTime score so it must be transitioned to as mentioned above.

There are several oxygen treatments that have helped stroke victims, including ozone therapy. See, for example:

Black Cumin

We received an email with an impressive recovery from a serious stroke victim using black cumin.

The patient used the honeycomb protocol with black cumin oil.


Dealing With a Stroke Victim In Emergencies – DMSO

Every person who might have a risk for having strokes (e.g. genetic) should have DMSO in the house and in the trunk of the car. DMSO should always be within 2 or 3 minutes from the person who has a stroke.

At the first sign of a stroke, do two things. First, rub the DMSO on the neck, arms, etc. and second, drive to the hospital or call an ambulance. The hospital will have DMSO or a synthetic version of DMSO. Just tell the emergency room person what YOU have done so they know what they need to do.

If the stroke is an ischemic stroke this may be able to dissolve the blood clot. The hospital will also have DMSO or they will have a prescription drug which acts like DMSO.

If it is a hemorrhagic stroke the DMSO will do zero harm so it is not a big deal.

Using DMSO later is also good. DMSO (Dimethyl Sulphoxide) is known to regenerate nerve cells and has been extensively researched by Dr. Stanley Jacob. But DMSO can be a life-saver when administered to someone who is actively having a stroke (if it is an ischemic stroke).

The sooner the DMSO is administered the better. Dr. Jacob strongly believed that every ambulance driver and emergency room should carry DMSO. To some degree, emergency rooms do have DMSO, but in many or most cases it is a profitable synthetic version which is effective, but I do not know if it as effective as the natural version.

My wife has a genetic condition which exposes her to ischemic strokes and I keep a bottle of DMSO both in the car and in the house at all times.

To learn how to safely handle and use DMSO, see this article (when using it on a stroke victim place the DMSO on the neck and shoulders).
