Introduction

The National Center for Health Statistics lists stroke as the third leading cause of death in the United States (after heart disease and cancer). Approximately 600,000 people s suffer a stroke each year, with close to 158,000 dying from it.

 

What is stroke?

Packed within the soft mass of the brain, there are more than 10 billion interconnected nerve cells, called neurons. The brain cells require a constant supply of oxygen and other nutrients, which they get from the steady flow of blood through the arteries. The human brain requires 500 to 600 ml oxygen per minute or 25% of the total body consumption. One liter of blood circulates to the brain each minute.

When this steady flow of oxygen and blood is interrupted, a stroke occurs and the brain cells or neurons in the affected area are killed by oxygen starvation. With the death of these cells and subsequent swelling, blood and oxygen are further isolated from the surrounding cells, which also then swell - and the cycle tends to repeat itself. As a result, the body functions that are controlled by the injured area of the brain are affected. Neuron metabolism is disturbed 6 seconds after loss of blood flow, brain activity occurs after a loss of 2 minutes, and permanent brain damage or death of brain cells begins in about 5 minutes.


Types of Stroke

There are two main types of stroke: Ischemic and Hemorrhagic.

Stroke caused by Ischemia - Ischemia results from lack of blood flow caused by the narrowing or blockage of an artery commonly called hardening of the arteries, in which plaques of cholesterol and other substances build up on the artery walls. An Ischemic stroke occurs when blood clots - also known as Emboli - block the blood flow through an artery. Eighty percent of strokes fall into this category, affecting mostly older people. Emboli can be, but are not always, the cause of Ischemic strokes.

Stroke caused by cerebral hemorrhage - Bleeding within the brain is known as cerebral hemorrhage. A hemorrhagic stroke occurs when a blood vessel leaks or ruptures and blood leaks into the surrounding tissue. (One type of hemorrhagic stroke is from an aneurysm; that's when part of an artery balloons-and often ruptures without warning.)

Stroke and Brain Injury Recovery Program / Alternative and Supplemental Therapies

The stroke or brain injury recovery program combines the benefits of three different alternative therapies. The therapies include intravenous treatments (IV), ultraviolet blood irradiation (UVI) and hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBTO). Once a patient work up and evaluation are completed, treatment can begin immediately. Depending on a patient's needs and condition, therapies may include the following:

Phosphatidyl Choline Protocol P.C.

* Lowers blood pressure - Nutrient for brain cell
* emulsifies and dissolve lipids (fat) including plaque in arteries

Meyer's Cocktail Protocol

* Mixture of various vitamins and minerals to help booster overall health and provid maximum benefits of important nutrients for health and healing as well as replace necessary nutrients after chelation therapy)

Piracetam Protocol (IV drip of Piracetam sometimes mixed with carnitine and/or glutathione)

* Improves circulation in stroke and cerebral paisley victims, brain and tumor patients)

Glutathione Protocol

* Nutrient and energy source for brain
* Acts as major antioxidant within each cell and lower levels of are seen in patients with cancer, heart disease, stroke, MS Parkinson's Alzheimer's and many other age related diseases.

Magnesium Sulfate IV Drip Treatments

* Open up the collateral circulation and relieves Ischemia (lack of blood flow caused by narrowing or blockage of an artery.

* Reduces size of damaged tissue in patients with peripheral vascular disease including gangrene, cladication, leg ulcers and thrombophlebitic, angina, acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), cerebral vascular disease and congestive heart failure.

CHELATION IV THERAPY (w/nutrients and minerals also added in mixture)

Chelation Protocol EDTA (Ethylene diamine Tetraacetic acid)

* Chelator removes deposits.
* Removes toxic heavy metal deposits of calcium that help form plaque - As plaque decreases, more blood flows to the heart and body.
* Mobilizes calcium and soft tissues where is should be stored and moves it to the bones acts as calcium channel blocker.
* May also reduce blood pressure 10 ñ 20 points.

Chelation Protocol DMPS (Dimercapto Propane Sulforic Acid )

* Specific Chelator - removes mercury.
.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
