My brother is having brain stroke. What should be lifestyle for him and what supplement should he take? Thanks in advance.
A brain stroke can affect anyone at any point of time when the supply of blood to the brain is interrupted. It can threaten major physical functions and can prove to be fatally dangerous at times. The brain stem which is placed right above the spinal cord controls the breathing, heartbeat and levels of blood pressure. It is also in charge of controlling some elementary functions such as swallowing, hearing, speech and eye movements.
What are the different types of strokes?
There are three main kinds of stroke: ischemic strokes, hemorrhagic strokes and transient ischemic attacks. The most common type of brain stroke is the ischemic stroke is caused by narrowing or blocking of arteries to the brain, which prevents the proper supply of blood to the brain. Sometimes it so happens that the blood clot that has formed elsewhere in the body have travelled via the blood vessels and has been trapped in the blood vessel which provides blood to the brain. When the supply of blood to a part of the brain is hindered, the tissue in that area dies off owing to lack of oxygen. The other variant of brain stroke is termed as hemorrhagic stroke is caused when the blood vessels in and around the brain burst or leak. Strokes need to be diagnosed and treated as quickly as possible in order to minimize brain damage. Remembering the F.A.S.T. acronym can help with recognizing the onset of stroke (Face, Arms, Speed, Time - explained below).
What are the common symptoms of a brain stroke?
The symptoms of the brain stroke are largely dependent on the area of the brain that has been affected. It can interfere with normal functioning, such as breathing and talking and other functions which human beings can perform without thinking such as eye movements or swallowing. Since all the signals from the brain as well as other parts of the body traverse through the brain stem, the interruption of blood flow often leads to numbness or paralysis in different parts of the body.
Who is likely to have a stroke?
Anyone is at a risk of developing brain stroke although ageing is directly proportional to the risk of having a stroke. Not only that an individual with a family history of brain stroke or transient ischemic attack is at a higher risk of developing stroke. People who have aged over 65 accounts for about 33 percent of all brain strokes. It is important to point here that individuals with high blood pressure, high blood sugar, cholesterol, cancer, autoimmune diseases and some blood disorders are at a higher risk of developing brain stroke.
There are a few factors which can increase the risk of developing stroke beyond any control. But there are certain lifestyle choices as well which aids in controlling the chances of being affected by stroke. It is crucial to refrain from long-term hormone replacement therapies as well as birth control pills, smoking, lack of physical activity, excessive use of alcohol and drug addiction. A brain stroke is a life-threatening medical condition, and when an individual has symptoms that resemble that of stroke, it is crucial to seek immediate medical help.
Treatment for stroke
- Treatment depends on the type of stroke.
- Ischemic strokes can be treated with 'clot-busting' drugs.
- Hemorrhagic strokes can be treated with surgery to repair or block blood vessel weaknesses.
- The most effective way to prevent strokes is through maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
What is TPA?
TPA is a thrombolytic or a “Clot Buster” drug. This clot buster is used to break-up the clot that is causing a blockage or disruption in the flow of blood to the brain and helps restore the blood flow to the area of the brain. It is given by intravenous (IV). This can be given only within 4.5 hrs of the onset of symptoms
Time is brain
- Remember Every second Loss means brain cells die.
- Rush to the nearest Stroke Centre whenever you experience such symptoms.
- U can save the brain cells dying if you reach within 4.5 hrs by the CLOT BUSTER.
Another treatment option is an endovascular procedure* called mechanical thrombectomy, strongly recommended, in which trained doctors try removing a large blood clot by sending a wired-caged device called a stent retriever, to the site of the blocked blood vessel in the brain
The good news is that 80 percent of all strokes are preventable. It starts with managing key risk factors, including
- High blood pressure,
- Cigarette smoking,
- Atrial fibrillation and
- Physical inactivity.
- More than half of all strokes are caused by uncontrolled hypertension or high blood pressure, making it the most important risk factor to control.
The best way to get better after a stroke is to start stroke rehabilitation ("rehab"). In stroke rehab, a team of health professionals works with you to regain skills you lost as the result of a stroke.

One of the most common and troubling sensations that we may experience is a migraine. However, common it may, it is a serious disorder and needs immediate attention. Medically, a migraine is defined as a severe and a constant throbbing pain which culminates to a pulsing sensation on one side of the head. Migraine is mainly accompanied by nausea, occasional or constant vomiting and an extreme sense of displeasure to light and sound. A migraine attack can last for hours or even days. The pain can be so severe that many times it leads to temporary disabling of the patient.
There is no specific age for migraine to set in; however, it is most common among the age group of 30 to 40, but patients can also experience migraine pains in their teens or early 20s. If you keep track of your physical changes and some uncommon bodily actions then you may be able to understand the early signs of a migraine attack. Some of the most common signs to watch out for are:
Sensitive to Light and Sound
All of a sudden, if your mobile screen seems too bright or the TV sounds too loud, even in normal settings, then you are showing early symptoms of a migraine attack and perhaps the most common one.
You are having a normal day, suddenly your eyes start to water up, and soon it’s uncontrollable. You wipe your eyes and the water keeps on forming, making it impossible for you to go on with it. This is certainly an early symptom of a migraine attack.
It may start with just an itch in or around the periphery of your ear. This will change to a throbbing ache; and when it does, it is generally a harbinger of a migraine that is about to set in.
Enjoying an ice-cream? Well, it is good as long as you enjoy it without any pain. But if your teeth suddenly become extra sensitive to the freezing temperature of the ice-cream, it may transpire to give you a migraine attack and is also considered one of the early signs of a migraine.
Lose Concentration, Train of Thoughts and Words
If you completely lose track of what you were thinking or can’t remember a word to put on your sentence or you’re unable to concentrate on the work at your hand, it may be a sign of a migraine attack.
