Stroke Recovery and Prevention Remedies

Eye Issues

Posted by Sandra C. (Smyrna, Georgia) on 11/15/2008

I had a mini stroke in my right eye, October 25. Went to an opthamologist, then a retina specialist. He Took pix of my right eye and you could see the dark area like a thin river branching, suppose an artery. I had a cardiac echo and a vascular doppler, both came back acceptable. My next thing in an MRI on Dec. 10th. My sight in my right eye is like a dark stormy cloud, always there, and when i look at something else, it is there. I should not be driving at all. My son, his wife and my 14 month old granddaughter live 400 miles away. I pray God will restore my eyesite. I try to rescue and help abused dogs, and it is very hard to do that at this time. Has anyone else had this, and did your eyesight comback. I am 58 years old. Please keep me in your prayers. God Bless Us All.

Once you had a mini stroke, you may want to consult with retina specialist who will administer a Avastin injection into the white part of your eye. It sounds actually much more terrible than it really is. Good luck!

Sorry dear, Of course you need to see a specialist. But the natural remedy I would give you is eat carrots in plenty and spinach. Also if you can get the tiny red peppers, they are very good for eyes. God bless and heal U (Our universal Healer)

Seven years ago I had a mini stroke one morning and experienced what I described as someone having pulled the shades down over my eyes (lasting about 2 weeks) along with tunnel vision for about 3 months when it started to improve. My only long term effect is remembering a person's name or naming an object. It isn't all the time but it does happen. I would go see a specialist since its been around for so long. Take care.

Stella from Kampala, could you maybe explain about the red peppers for the eyes? I am very myopic and am now struggling with the retina of my left eye which is detaching. I am always on the look out for new remedies to improve my vision.

20 years ago, my father had stroke when he was 69 y/o. Being heavy smoker, first three weeks in hospital were very difficult, he was blind, not able to move/talk, having crisis on 7th, 14th, 21st day after stroke incident. Days in between, he would be smoking, (Bosnia in the 90s, patient could smoke in the hospital) it was really a battle to get him off.

Things gotten really bad, family thought we lost him. The most amazing thing, friends recommended to take Russian pills Aminalon 2x 250mg with each meal, so 3 times a day. We were told, as much as he recovers in next 18 months will be the best he can ever get. To my amazement, 2 months after the stroke, he was released from hospital, able to move, but having difficulties with orientation. He wouldn't know the way around, not knowing where kitchen or bedroom is. He did stop smoking, but kept taking Aminalon like religious thing. 6 months later, he was able to go to the city downtown by himself, not getting lost, finding way back to the apartment.

I lived with him for the first 1.5 years. After that, he was on his own, and lived for 12 years in great health after the stroke. He was active till the last day, he died in his sleep.

When I looked up Aminalon, I discovered it's called GABA here in the west, but never heard anyone suggesting for stroke patients. Back home, it's been known to help recover brain function and memory. One year after stroke, 50 y/o actor was able to get back to theater, memorizing script better than any young guy, thanks to Aminalon aka GABA.

Wish all the best, hope for Ted's recovery.

Green smoothie for stroke patients.

My friend in his 80s had a severe stroke which put him in ICU for more than 4 months. Amazingly he pulled out of it, (multiple infections, organ failure etc.) Out of ICU, finally able to take outside food, I started making him this basic green smoothie.

With paralysis on his right side, arm & leg he needs to be in a wheelchair. The general view by the that the progress you make after 6 months is generally what you're stuck with... However he continues to surprise the the therapist & dr's, so much so that on his last visit a group of therapists and doctors formed around him, amazed at his results. They rarely if at all see this sort of improvement in that age group.

He has a great positive will, which is most likely the main factor, however I like to think (no science here) that my smoothies helped. Reading that Apigenin, abundant in Parsley, is good for brain, neuron connections it became one of the main ingredients. A simple recipe, aided in flavor (very important) with a pack of Vega Sport protein powder.. no endorsement, just really like the flavor and keeping the drink vegetarian. The other two greens, Dandelion & Watercress, are known to be the most nutritionally dense greens.. so very simply...

Smoothie Recipe

2 cups water
1 bunch dandelions. (organic preferred)
1 bunch watercress (hard to get organic, but soak in vinegar for few minutes, rinse)
1 bunch of parsley (organic preferred)
A packet of this Vega Sports Protein powder..Vanilla. (google search)
A large dollop (2 tbsp) of Tahini..
Cinnamon... and a banana perhaps for extra flavor.. could even throw in some blueberries.

I blended it all up in my Blendtec blender.. about a minute.. Voila. The protein powder is necessary to make it palatable.. otherwise not great tasting. He loved them and especially good at the start when his swallowing reflex was poor.

I now add a pinch of Mustard Seed Powder and some Arugula. Mustard Seed powder contains Myrosinase and enzyme to help convert glucoraphanin to sulforaphane. Sulforaphane is showing to have a host of impressive benefits for humans. (found mostly in cruciferous veggies) google it.

Korean Acupuncture

Thru reading Ted's posts thru the years here on earthclinic, he's helped me so much!

I also wanted to recommend that he consider a special type of acupuncture for stroke recovery.

There is a traditional Korean style of acupuncture specifically geared towards treating stroke, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Bell's palsy, epilepsy, and paralysis. There's a few acupuncturists in the world who practice this very old and specialized style of acupuncture. They are in Korea and I know of one here in Los Angeles.

I wish him a speedy recovery!

EC: Thank you, Victor! We will send your post to his sister Nok.

Hi there, magnesium will make your bowels move. Some people can only take one magnesium pill. I have to take two. I have constipation if I do not take it. You need to look up the importance of magnesium in the body. Very important supliment. Did you know that when a person is having a stroke. If the dr will give the patient a magnesium drip all symptoms will go away. I am living proof of this.

A friend who I have known since high school, had a stroke over 12 1/2 years ago that left her with poor movement on her left side and nerve pain that is mostly severe and affects the whole left side of her body. Her left side movement has improved slightly over time, but the nerve pain has remained the same. Her doctor told her that there isn't much they can do for this type of nerve pain/damage because there just hasn't been much research into it. He told her that all he could offer her for the 24/7 pain is an antidepressant that has some pain relieving qualities. She said that it hasn't done much as far as relieving her pain.

Here is how she described her pain to me. She said that just a very slight breeze against her skin on the left side of her body can cause unbearable pain and her clothes rubbing against her skin can do the same. She can not rest her left arm on anything, including the table when eating. She can not walk on wood, tile or cement floors with her bare feet because the pain will make her cry. Laying down, she mostly has to lay on her right side and try to avoid any part of her left side touching anything. Watching her move, you can tell she is very guarded in how she moves in order to prevent her left side from coming in contact with anything. She is a very social person, but this condition has pretty much caused her to become a hermit who pretty much stays in her home because when she is around friends, it causes excruciating pain if anyone tries to hug her or touch her left side in anyway.

Last week she came out to visit me and her pain level was obvious. On a previous visit, I had made a quart of topical ibuprofen spray to see if it would help with the nerve pain. I was not very hopeful about the ibuprofen because I know it is not usually helpful for nerve related pain or damage. She said she would try it and since she was going to be staying a week, I figured I would be able to see if it helped her or not. I estimated that the quart of spray would last her about a month with everyday use. Two days later, I asked her if the spray was helping her at all and she said that it barely took the edge off of the pain, but that it was the only relief she has known so she was glad to have it. I told her the quart should probably last her about a month and then I would make her some more. She said she didn't think the quart of spray was going to last that long and I asked her why she thought that and she said because the quart was down to about two ounces left! I was shocked and asked her if she was drinking it? She said no and that she was just reapplying it whenever the pain started to break through. I told her that I could not make any more for her because even with topical application, she was getting to high of a systemic dose at the rate she was using the spray. She was saddened by this and so was I because I was hoping the spray could make life more tolerable for her.

Well that was quite awhile ago and she decided to come out for another one week visit. On Saturday, I told her to try a mag oil mix I had made up that also had MSM in it. I told her to only apply it to her left arm from the elbow to the tip of her fingers. Within just a few minutes she said she could feel something happening. She started touching her left arm where she had applied the mag oil and she told me that it hurt much less than just a few minutes before. About a minute later she started touching the part of her left arm that would normally rest on the table when eating and she said it didn't seem to hurt much, but she kept touching that area over and over again because I think she just didn't believe what was happening as far as the sudden pain reduction. To demonstrate just how much it was relieving her pain, she placed her arm on the granite counter top and just let it sit there and she said it didn't hurt much at all! Previously, it was very painful to try and rest that arm on a wood table, but just about impossible to rest it on stone, concrete or tile. This all seemed to good to be true! I told her to let me know when the pain was starting to come back.

Unfortunately, about 15 to 20 minutes later the pain started coming back and she reached for the bottle of mag oil to spray some more onto her arm and I told her not to do it. I told her to just spray plain water on the area where she had previously applied the mag oil to "reactivate" the magnesium chloride that was sitting on her skin and had not been absorbed yet. She did spray a little water on the area and then rubbed it in a little. In a few minutes, the pain went way down again. I told her whenever the pain started coming back to just reactivate the area with water and she did that for the rest of the day and her arm pretty much remained at a very low pain level in the area where she had applied the mag oil. She did not apply any more mag oil to her arm that day, just water to reactivate the magnesium chloride.

That night she decided to try the mag oil on the rest of her left side that she was able to reach. In line with the previous results to her arm, her nerve pain where she applied the mag oil was dramatically reduced! This was pain relief she had not had in over a decade! I told her that if 10 was the worst her nerve pain had been, where did she think it was now and she said possibly a 3 or possibly even less!

I talked to her the next morning and she told me that her leg and foot had remained almost pain free all night and that when she went to get out of bed in the morning, it was so much easier and much less painful, with no tears! I asked her how her arm was doing and she said she did not time it, but she could tell that she was having to reactivate the arm with water much less often than the original 15 minutes from the very first application.

I was not previously aware that mag oil could be reactivated by just applying water on top of the original mag oil application, so this part is very interesting to me and I am glad I suggested it to her because for people who are using mag oil long term everyday, I think it will make application easier, easier to adhere to an application schedule as well as be a little easier on the skin. The water reactivation should also help to further diminish the tacky feeling of mag oil!

Today, I could see she was smiling and moving faster and more freely. She said it seems like, as she absorbs more magnesium, she needs to reactivate less and less often. She said after a mag oil application she may only have to reactivate it once during the day and not every area of her left side.

I ended up making her a gallon of 50% mag oil with MSM, xylitol and glycerin for her to take home with her and at her current burn rate, that gallon could easily last her over a year using the water reactivation step. The magnesium can help her body heal some of the damage from the stroke and MSM provides sulphur that the body can use as part of the healing process and can have pain relieving qualities for some people as well as helping to reduce the tacky feeling that is typical of mag oil solutions. The downside to MSM is that some people do not tolerate it well or have almost allergic like reactions to it. The xylitol and glycerine are mainly to help keep the skin moisturized because I was afraid that long term daily application of mag oil might have a drying effect on the skin, but together they also have anti irritation effects and anti inflammatory effects so they seemed like they would go well with this mag oil mix.

It should be noted that the first bottle of mag oil I had her try was made with vodka in place of water or witch hazel to help minimize the "tacky feel" that is typical of mag oil. I used a 50% mix and I also used MSM, but I did not use glycerin and xylitol, so those two ingredients are not needed for her to get the pain relief, they are just there to hopefully make her mag oil batch more user friendly. Unfortunately I do not know how much if anything, the MSM contributes to this nerve pain relieving effect, but I would try mag oil without it just to see. She just left for home, so I can't try a mag oil only mix to find out, but I do think the MSM may have longer term benefits for her in particular and that is why I put it in the mag oil mix I made for her.

It is hard to believe that she suffered for over 12 1/2 years with this nerve pain/damage and mag oil is helping to greatly reduce the pain and is giving her a life again! She calls it her "little miracle solution"! She was the happiest I have seen her in a very long while!

I have no idea if this will be effective for others with nerve pain, but I do know that if I ever have nerve pain, I will certainly try mag oil, considering what my options are!

What a good friend you are :)

I also have/ had severe nerve pain through a lot of my body. After a couple of years of western medical pain docs, I realised that all they do is try to cover up the pain with toxic life long meds, or a nerve block that made it worse. So I sacked them, and being a medical researcher I researched! By research, opiates are actually the best thing for nerve pain...

The best things have been Mg Oil, and moreso DMSO (I can't believe this is so little known, thanks to the FDA suppressing it for decades - see youtube Dr Stanley Jacobs DMSO 60 minutes). You do need to research how to use and buy quality stuff, probably in glass bottles only. I take it orally and topically, I would IV it if I could, but Australia has sold out to FDA/ BigPharma and now you can't even get DMSO without a script (and since docs don't know about it or have sold out to BigPharma, that can be difficult). It can take many months for overall effect, although some it helps straight away. I took oral MSM initially (the other form of DMSO), but no help after one year for nerve pain, but it does help some people. Mixing DMSO and Mg Oil together would be interesting although could irritate skin without necessary dilution, but it might help improve penetration in the body. I found also need to keep up sunshine and B12, walking in the sun if I could. My pain is now about 3/4 reduced after 18 months (the docs told me it would never go away or reduce). I recently read that when most people start supplementing Mg Oil they don't take enough, need to start on at least 1 oz per day all over body. Best of luck!

Oh thank Heaven!, I have 9 vertabraes, all degenerated and inoperable plus since having a heart attack in 2014 I cannot have any general anesthetics again, Scoliosis. I'm in pain 24/7.

Would you please send me the exact amount in ounces or teaspoons on the final dosage you made for your friend. I've not used Mag nor have I heard of the oil before. I also have hypertension so can't tolerate epidurals either. I', m 5 Ft tall, 108 lbs, 90 yrs old if that helps in the dosage.

Yes, it is sad when greed is such a deciding factor in our health care. There are many studies on magnesium and its health benefits, but it seems like the very best studies never see the light of day! How hard can it be to test topical mag oil on post-stroke nerve pain?

Thankfully, we have, Deirdre Layne, who started Earth Clinic and gave us a great place to share all of these health ideas with the world!

In reply to Eva (Nv),

It doesn't sound like you have post-stroke nerve pain as my friend did, but many people on EC and around the web seem to find that topical magnesium chloride oil is useful for relaxing stiff muscles and joints.

As far as dosing, since you have never used magnesium oil before, you will probably be best served to go to your local vitamin store and buy a ready made 8 ounce spray bottle of magnesium chloride oil. Just follow the directions on the bottle. This will be a cheap way to find out if it will be helpful for your particular situation. If it is helpful for you, you can then follow the instructions on the brand new magnesium chloride oil video that Earth Clinic just released on its YouTube channel. Here is a link to that video:

By making your magnesium oil as outlined in that video, you will be able to make a quality product for a very reasonable price!

This sounds promising as I have nerve damage from infections & an amputation.

The only concern I have is the use of xylitol. Though I do use it as a sweetener I am careful to insure my dogs do not come in contact with it. Xylitol is toxic to canines, causing kidney failure. I would not want the dog to lick it off my hand or leg.

In reply to Jb (Atlanta, Ga),

Yes, xylitol is definitely bad for dogs, so if there is a chance that your dog might lick it off of your body, leave it out. The xylitol was only there to help moisturize the skin along with the glycerin because they have synergy together and together they have anti inflammatory properties. The glycerin will have moisturizing qualities by itself.

I am not certain that long term application of mag oil will be drying to the skin, it was only a precautionary measure and I would remain more concerned about trying to alleviate post-stroke nerve related pain.I can always use almost any lotion to do the same and not have to be concerned about whether my dog might lick it off of me.

I talked to my friend with the post-stroke nerve pain to see how she is doing now that two weeks have passed since she started mag oil and she said, with the once daily use of the mag oil mix I made for her and reactivating with plain water as needed, she is now pain free!

I hope she tells her doctor who told her that he had very little to offer her for the nerve pain she has experienced for over a decade. Perhaps he will share the idea with his other patients who might benefit from it! Every well stocked vitamin store will have mag oil in stock, how easy is that?

She used home made mag oil made from magnesium chloride flakes. This is approximately a 50/50 mix of magnesium chloride flakes and anyone of the following: filtered water, distilled water, witch hazel or vodka.

The filtered water mix is the most oily feeling of the four. The vodka mix is the least oily feeling of the four and also tends to dry a little faster. When I use msm in a mix like this, I add about 5 grams per ounce of mag oil.

If I was going to be doing this for myself from scratch, I would just buy a very small commercial bottle of magnesium chloride oil like an 8 ounce spray bottle and try it all by itself to see if it has any benefit for whatever I intend to use it for. If it has no benefit, then my experiment is done and I have not wasted a lot of money for nothing. If it has benefit, then I would try adding the other items mentioned to it, one at a time to see if they are additive or not. Why waste money for things that may not be additive. Keep in mind that things like the glycerin and xylitol are only there to help moisturize the skin.

If the 8 ounce spray bottle is beneficial, then I can order a large bag of magnesium chloride flakes on line and make my own mag oil at home very inexpensively as outlined in the popular Earth Clinic video available on this website in the video section for free! Making your own is much cheaper than buying the commercial products.

Nattokinase and Serrapeptase together form an effective remedy for dissolving blood clots and shuttling the thinned blood away from site of injury.


Posted by Maskeen (Dubai, Uae) on 01/02/2011

A friend of mine had a transient ischemic attack which is a precursor to a stroke. He was prescribed a blood thinner. However, an herbalist directed him to nattokinase which is an enzyme from the japanese food natto. It is a potent fibrinolytic which means that it dissolves the fiber which makes the blood thick rather than thinning the blood. Coq10, also known as vitamin q, is necessary for a healthy heart. Four years later, no more tia's.

I have had TIA exactly one year ago. And I have been given TPA thereafter within 3 hours. And I have been doing well since then. The only problem was that I got this due to Hereditary reasons. Now, the question is whether I have any chances of getting strokes in the coming years. What should I do as a precautionary measure?

I am obese not from overeating, but due to stressors that I did not handle well and that caused a major stroke a year ago. Since then, I have made a major change in my diet even though I had eaten very well before without white flours, sugars and the other problem foods for many years. Now I am eating raw vegan foods and have not only finally dropped almost 40 pounds but my blood sugar levels are down to the mid-90s. I credit eating a raw food lifestyle with all this! My thyroid numbers are also in the more normal range! Lots of good changes that I believe eating a raw food lifestyle made happen.

I was hit by a minor stroke 3 weeks ago while nappng at lunchtime. When I woke up and realised my left hand was cold and unresponsive (folded fingers could not straighten, lost control of using the hand) I immediately started doing some frog jumps, stretches etc. After 30 minutes, my had started feeling warm. I carried on exercising for another 20 minutes till I could hold a phone in my left hand and press the key pads.

Anyway, while at the clinic a while later, one woman shared that she had had a stroke so massive 6 months earlier that she spent over a month in the hospital. When she was discharged, her face was still twisted and she still paralyzed. Her aunt then suggested that she eat one raw potato each day, with the skin. She says the raw potato reversed all effects of stroke.

I have been eating one raw potato every day too, and taking at least 2000mg Vit C, apple cider vinegar, juicing vegetables too. I am getting there slowly.

The same regime is doing wonders for my aunt who had a stroke 5 years ago but recovered sufficiently to function normally. Lately, she has been complaining of pain in the heart which has lessened since she started the above regime this week. Early days, but results are promising so far.

Please note that potato is acidifying effect in the body, so its best to take more green juices if you must use/eat more than one potato per day. If I juice more than one potato then I use a whole bunch of kale/spinach, cucumber etc to offset the acidifying effect of the potato in the body.

Dear Sir, My father had a road accident on dated 7th May 2013, he was concious after the accident, immediately after the accident my father went to the clinic for first aid, after getting the first aid my father came home. He had lunch, after two hours from the accident he fell down unconcious, we immediately rushed to the hospital.

In hospital Doctors did the CT Scan and from the scan it was revealed that there are some blood clots, the treatmnet was started immedately but the concious level of my ftaher deteriorated gradually. After two days from the accident another CT scan was done and in that scan the blood clot size was increasing in one area.

We shifted our father to another better hospital, on dated 17th May 2013, Doctor sugested that there will be an operation for the removal of the clot so operation was done on the same day. As per the Doctor the operation was quite successful but still my father is unconcious. Today the doctors did another CT Scan and the reports are quite satisfactory. The Doctors are saying that the patient should be in the state of conciousness

Kindly I need your advise in this regards.

NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue.. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other , that is also an indication of a stroke.
