What’s the primary cause of Stroke?
THIS result when a portion of the brain is suddenly deprived of blood circulation due to the bursting of an artery, which produces a cerebral hemorrhage.
The blockage of an artery by a blood clot at the site of the blockage in the brain or an embolism (a blockage caused by a clot anywhere in the body that has broken loose and traveled to the blockage site).
Arteriosclerosis is the primary cause of stroke since it fosters arterial rupture and the formation of clots. Other factors such as hypertension, tobacco and diabetes increases stroke risk.
Food for stroke
Fruit: It has been demonstrated that greater fruit intake lowers stroke risk. Fruit makes the blood more fluid and reduces its tendency to clot within the blood vessels.
Vegetables: Vegetables have an effect similar to fruit and their use also lowers stroke risk. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and their freshly made juice. Especially good are whole grains such as brown rice spinach, cabbage, melon and tomatoes.
Onions: Onions reduces the stickiness of blood platelets that results in clots. This improves arterial blood flow. Onions are also effective for heart attack as they also help to thin the blood naturally.
Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and their freshly made juice. Especially good are whole grain such as brown rice, carrots, watercress, fresh and dried apricots, spinach, cabbage, spring greens, mangoes and tomato puree.
Magnesium: Magnesium rich foods include honey, raw wheat germ and curry powder.
Olive oil: Olive oil acts in the same manner as fish oil to reduce clotting tendencies but without its drawbacks.
Low-sugar cereals are high in B vitamins which help reduce homocystelin levels.
Drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water a day.
