  • In 2018 November 8 I had my first Stroke, After returning from my friends house, immediately I was rushed to the Community health Care. The neurologist said that I had been having “mini-strokes” or “Trans Ischemic Attacks (TIA’s)” for years. All the physicians agreed that a congenital heart problem called Atrial Septal Defect was causing the strokes. After the first major stroke, however, I was not well enough to undergo the corrective heart surgery. Stroke affected vital pathways in my brain, causing constant electric-like pain on the left side of my body. After the second stroke, I was placed on machines aided life support and the doctors tried all they could but I wasn’t recovering they decided i give a traditional herbal doctor a try, since all they have done to revive me was to no avail. A college friend of mine had a uncle who was a traditional herbal doctor; “Dr Odia” he base in Tampa, Fl and has helped so many people all over the world with his herbal formula; so they said. My Children were reluctant to give his herbal formula for stroke a try, they needed me to get well by any means necessary because their mum died of Cancer years Ago. They were willing to go any Length for a cure. Well to God be the Glory Dr Odia was a God sent, he placed me on his medication, although he wasn’t present, but with his instructions my children where able to administer his medication, I regained the ability to walk, speak clearly and drive very well. To God alone I give all the glory and am for ever greatful to Dr Odia for being a hand of God in my Life. I want people to think back to Natural herbs, that’s why am sharing this.i believe God has hidden the solutions to all sickness and diseases in Natural herbs and root that we don’t pay much attention to.Am a living testimony of Natural herbs and root. If you or a loved one is going through a deadly diseases that seems impossible to cure totally, believe me root and herbs is the Solution. You can on his Facebook page “Dr Odia” for all in need of a permanent cure to stroke or any other Chronic disease. ( Dr Odia Herbalist Home ) on Facebook or email: ( [email protected] gmail.com

  • Fuck off ���� ” try go more and more vegan everyday” that’s how you got the strokes in first place. Vegetable oils and carbs are the worst. Eat high FAT diet. The brain made up of fat so feed it fat hello!!!!!! How can you not know this. The best way to nourish your brain is eating raw animal fats based foods. Or even cooked. Butter, Steaks, pork, chicken, duck, organ meats liver etc this is what the brain wants. Go eat at least one of those I listed and come back and tell me your brain doesn’t like it lol please. You get the almost like eurphoric state after you eat fatty meal. A nourishing, satiated state which is what we should be feeling after we eat our proper diet god dam!

  • All thanks to @dr_alabi6 for helping me with his herbs to cure my HERPES VIRUS right now everything is fine thank God for everything, doctor you are the best i ever meet he is real and can be trusted and also he is the best herbal doctor in African @dr_alabi6 contact him on WhatsApp:+2348110960953 or email address: ([email protected])can also cure {1}HIV And AIDS {2} HPV {3}Diabetes {4} Hepatitis {5} Vitiligo {6} Blood Cancer (7) stroke

  • wow he went to school to be lied to veggies is what makes the body have Inflammation not meat. But oh well kill more people off is what they like to do.

  • I am 34 years old, a wife to Bakers and mummy to Ava and George. I was a lawyer but have been a stay at home mum for nearly nine years now, which is slightly scary. I have loved it and I would count it as a job because I have worked harder at home than I ever did anywhere else. What happened to me? I was going to say that I have recently become disabled. It’s actually five years ago, now so it isn’t that recent, but it still only feels like yesterday that I felt I had a burst AVM. A lot of other people have explained it a lot better, so I am not even going to attempt if you want to know more type ‘Arteriovenous Malformation’ into any Internet search engine. In search for a better health I came across people talking of Dr. Adebola on the internet, on how he uses herbs to treat so many chronic diseases, I was reluctant to give his herbal formula a try. At first it was like a miracle to me and my loved ones, I later realized that it was the miracle powers in his herbs that help my brain cells to function normal, after 5 years I now have my health in order, I now do everything I couldn’t do while I was disabled, am so grateful to God and Dr Adebola, I can’t thank him enough so I pray his nature’s knowledge be multiplied to help reach out to more people in need of a stable health.

    I want people to think about the HEALING powers in nature’s herbs, If you have already had a stroke then I appreciate this might be too late but carers and loved ones should think about this in case something similar happens or had happened to them!

    Reach out to Dr. Adebola, message him via email [email protected] yahoo.com, or whatsapp via: +19292018600

    Best of luck.

  • I ABSOLUTELY Disagree with the eating low saturated fat and eat a diet rich in vegetable and fruits. Like seriously? ALL Mammalian Animals in Nature Eat a Diet that is HIGH in saturated animal Fat and cholesterol and LOW in fruits. Herbivores have gut bacteria that can convert fiber into saturated animal fat and animal protein. This is why Cows eat grass all day long but are not made of grass. They are made of animal fat and animal protein. Vegetables do not exist in nature because they are man made plant foods because we cannot eat wild plants like a real herbivore can. The diet that the medical association recommends is WHAT causes stroke because they are very high in GRAINS, and PLANT OILS, WHICH ABSOLUTELY NO ANIMALS IN NATURE EAT. Even the wild fruits that wild animals have access to are LOW IN SUGAR. What animal would you feed a diet that is high in grains and sugar bomb fruit (like a banana) to. I cannot think of any mammalian animals that I would feed a diet that you guys recommend to. No wonder it is the 5th leading cause of death, despite all the recommendation. BECAUSE the RECOMMENDATION [email protected]#$ing WRONG.

  • Some times we fall drastically ill because we think too much. If that happens for a long time of time, it can cause depression which can lead to partial stroke. With knowing one of the be financial advisor my life changed and i worry less after watching her video and following some tips on building financial stability and stamina. Later on i decided to try some financial brooking platform she talked about with $18,000 out of my retirement savings. I followed every step she gave and my own investment that i did all by myself grew up to $31,200 without stress and much delay. You can look her name on google Lyra Holt Dean to see what she does and the kind of platform she operates and how to reach her out

  • My husband had a stroke, and was having disappointing recovery. I was able to research brain plasticity and so many topics on this site, and I desperately wanted to find something he could use to stimulate the neurons in the brain, but he couldn’t use so many of the things, because of a brain stent. he still was having problem with drop foot and kept falling, but from all the research I did, i found a comment of a stroke patient testifying of how Dr IFA helped her recover from stroke completely, after disability of 2 years. With his roots and herbs healing power. So i also contacted Dr IFA via email address, and he gave us some instructions and also courier some roots and herbs (herbal medicine) via TRANSWORLD COURIER COMPANY. With a manual for assumption, which we followed accordingly. And today is the 9th day of assumption. And my husband is already walking. Please let’s help anyone around us, going through this suffering. You can also contact Dr IFA via email address:[email protected] GMAIL.COM Regards.

  • While I think this is great advice for anyone who is having trouble sticking to an exercise routine, if I may say so the headline is a little misleading, as it has nothing to do with stroke specifically. Anyone who has just had a stroke or is at risk of stroke, who is searching youtube for a video they think my tell them what kind of exercises to do, is going to get absolutely no help from this video, despite the first four words of the title being ‘Exercise and Stroke Prevention’. Also, if it was truly about ‘Barriers to Success’ it would have explored a range of actual barriers, for instance people being worried about over-stressing their body or raising their blood pressure, putting them at further risk of stroke. Instead it was a general point about the doctor’s personal journey about finding time to fit in the daily exercise. I’m sure you do great work but please be aware people on youtube search desperately for these things, and misleading headlines don’t help them find the life-saving info they need. Just saying,

  • Western medication can’t effectively treat and reverse stroke. Only God’s mercy nano-medication should be the
    last-ditch treatment for stroke. How to regenerate dead neurons is to milk from the bull for western medication.

  • “And try to go more vegan every day”! LOL All us vegans suffer insults for years and now a dr says this. We told ya! Hmmmm…flaxseed has lots of hormones. Chia substitute maybe?

  • A great advice BEAUTIFUL. I realised myself actually recently that the nagging voice inside, the inner critic is it the centre most of our pain, and behind the neglect and lack of self-care. We have to replace it with self-compassion.
