How to Prevent Stroke?

Posted by Cecile at 4/26/2011 10:42:00 PM
My mother had a stroke three years ago. We were so worried for her. How could she? She is very healthy and eats mostly veggies and fruits. She and my father eat very little meat and are very active people! Thank God the stroke was mild and she went home with medications to prevent it from happening again. We have found out that because of her high blood pressure, she had a mild stroke! That mild stroke had given her a type 2 diabetes...now it is under control. She still takes blood pressure medicines though. Anyway, with my Mom's experienced...I learned very important lessons...that I try to follow since that incident.

In December of 2010 there are some guidelines that were released online. Ten effective strategies to prevent stroke.

Medical Changes:
~ Lower your blood pressure
~ Improve cholesterol levels
~ Rein in diabetes
~ Have your pulse checked
~ Neck surgery: Think twice

Lifestyles Changes:
~ Follow a brain-healthy diet
~ Trim your waist
~ Make a move
~ Drink moderately, if at all
~ Quit smoking
