Believe it or not, there are many natural ways to prevent a stroke.
Whether it is following a strict healthy diet and exercising or being aware of the signals your body will send you, nature has developed its own way to warn us from potential health dangers.
Now you need to know that there are two types of strokes. The first stroke is called ischemic stroke and it is more common, and the second one is called hemorrhagic.
The first type of stroke results from blocking or narrowing of arteries to the brain which results in a reduced blood flow and the second type is caused by internal brain bleeding.
This is why you should stay aware of anything unusual that might happen in your body, considering the fact that strokes are the #5 killer in the US.
The primary function of the blood vessels is to carry nutrients and oxygens to the brain. This process is interrupted when the arteries are clogged and this results in a stroke when the certain part of the brain doesn’t get the blood and oxygen in needs. This causes the brain cells to die.
This is why after surviving a stroke, many people have mental health issues since parts of their brain that were damaged don’t work as well as they did or don’t work at all.
This is why it is so important to know the warning signs of stroke, because you or a family member might find yourself in an unwanted situation when it happens. If you happen to be experiencing any of the signs we are going to mention today, immediately seek out medical help or go in for a check-up.
Although the symptoms can vary depending on the person, only one thing is known for sure – strokes begin suddenly.
Here are the most common stroke symptoms:
- Overall pain
- Common hiccups
- Breathing problems
- Personality changes
- Falling unconsciousness / absent mindedness
- Epileptic attacks
- Light-headedness and weakness
