Homeopathy Medicine for Stroke
Brain tissue cannot receive oxygen and nutrients when a stroke occurs because the blood supply to that area of the brain is cut off or reduced. Within minutes, brain cells start to deteriorate.
In fact, nearly 800,000 people in the United States experience a stroke annually, or about one every 40 seconds, making it the fifth most common cause of death in the country.
- Ischemic stroke:A blood clot prevents blood and oxygen from reaching a part of the brain, causing the most frequent type of stroke, which accounts for 87% of all cases.
- Hemorrhagic stroke:These usually result from aneurysms or arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), and this happens when a blood vessel bursts.
- Transient ischemic attack :Some people refer to this as a ministroke because it happens when blood flow to a part of the brain is insufficient for a brief period of time, normal blood flow returns shortly after, and the symptoms go away on their own.
Stroke can be fatal.
Because the brain does not receive enough oxygen or nutrients as a result of a blockage or bleed in the blood vessels, brain cells begin to deteriorate and result in a stroke.
The blood vessels that supply the brain with oxygen are affected by stroke, which is a cerebrovascular disease. If the brain does not receive enough oxygen, damage may begin to develop.
Even though many strokes can be treated, some can result in disability or even death, making this a medical emergency.
Changing one’s lifestyle and addressing the underlying causes are the best ways to prevent a stroke.
- eating a healthful diet
- maintaining a moderate weight
- exercising regularly
- not smoking tobacco
- Abstinence from alcohol or moderation in drinking
A wholesome diet should contain a lot of:
- whole grains
To support healthy blood pressure levels, make sure to moderate salt intake as well as limit consumption of red and processed meat, cholesterol, and saturated fats.
A person can also follow these other steps to lessen their risk of stroke:
- keeping their blood pressure under control
- managing diabetes
- receiving heart disease treatment
The risk of having another stroke can be decreased by altering one’s lifestyle and by taking anticoagulant or antiplatelet medications.
Causes and risk factors
Although there are numerous potential causes for each type of stroke, generally speaking, a person is more likely to experience stroke if they:
- have overweight or obesity
- have reached the age of 55 or more
- have a history of stroke in their family or own life
- have high blood pressure
- have diabetes
- have high cholesterol
- possess a vascular disease, such as heart disease or carotid artery disease
- are sedentary
- consume alcohol excessively
- use illicit drugs
specific causes of each type of stroke.
The arteries that supply blood to the brain become blocked or narrowed in this type of stroke, which results in ischemia, or significantly reduced blood flow, which harms brain tissue.
Ischemic stroke is frequently brought on by blood clots, which can develop in blood vessels throughout the body, including the brain, and travel through the bloodstream to smaller arteries in the brain.
Another factor that can lead to clots and ischemia is fatty plaque buildup in the arteries.
Hemorrhagic strokes can be caused by brain arteries that are ruptured or leaky.
Brain tissue that has hemorrhaged is less likely to receive blood after the bleeding because of blood leakage, which puts pressure on the brain’s cells and harms them.
Transient ischemic attack
Similar to ischemic strokes, they are caused by blood clots, and they also interrupt the blood flow to the brain.
They serve as warning signs for future strokes, indicate a partially blocked artery or clot source in the heart, and people should treat them as medical emergencies, even if the symptoms are transient.
A stroke’s primary symptoms, which frequently come on suddenly, are as follows:
- the inability to speak and understand speech; confusion
- a headache that might be accompanied by dizziness or nausea
- Particularly on one side of the body, numbness or immobility in certain face, arm, or leg regions
- one or both eyes have vision issues.
- dizziness, lack of coordination, and difficulty walking
Depending on how quickly a person receives diagnosis and treatment after a stroke, they may or may not experience permanent disabilities. Stroke can result in chronic health issues.
Additionally, for some people:
- problems with bowel or bladder function
- body weakness or paralysis on one or both sides
- a problem with emotion regulation or expression
The severity of the symptoms can differ.
F.A.S.T. is an acronym that can help you remember the symptoms of a stroke and help you spot its onset.
Face dropping—Does the person’s face droop on one side when they attempt to smile?
Arm weakness—Does one arm sag downward when attempting to raise both arms?
Speech difficulty—Does the person’s speech sound slurred or strange when they attempt to repeat a simple phrase?
There is great anxiety of the mind and body, restlessness, redness of the face, congestive headaches, a hot, heavy, and bursting sensation in the head, palpitations associated with anxiety, hot hands and cold feet, and numbness and tingling in the hands and feet, especially in the hands and feet. **ACONITUM NAPELLUS —** Aconite is considered in the initial stage, when the hemorrhage has just occurred. It may be due to emotional
OPIUMOpium is detected by the following symptoms: coma, dusky red face, dilated pupils, hot sweats, one-sided paralysis, collapsed posture, slow, labored pulse.
NUX VOMICA—Nux vomica is used in conjunction with opium to complete the treatment of threatened brain hemorrhage with giddiness, headache, and fullness of head. It is suitable for people who have overindulged in wines and alcoholic beverages and also occurs after heavy meals.
LAUROCERASUSWhen a stroke occurs suddenly and without warning, palpitations, cold, moist skin, facial muscle convulsions, loss of speech, sudden coughing, suffocation, etc., Laurocerasus is prescribed.
