STROKE: A HOMEOPATHIC APPROACH

62

The brain cannot store oxygen, so it depends on a network of blood vessels to supply it with blood that is rich in oxygen. When a blood vessel in the brain becomes blocked or bursts, it results in a lack of blood supply, preventing surrounding nerve cells from receiving nutrients and oxygen. When tissue is cut off from its supply of oxygen for more than 3–4 minutes, it starts to die.

A stroke can cause a wide range of disabilities, including the following, depending on the degree and location of brain damage:

Paralysis, the inability of a portion of the body to move.

A portion of the body feeling numb.

Lack of verbal or auditory comprehension.

· Difficulty communicating.

· Difficulty swallowing.

· Vision loss.

Poor judgment, confusion, or memory loss.

· Change personality; emotional problems.
