From the American Stroke Association Website:
“May is American Stroke Month, which is the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s annual campaign to increase stroke awareness and to educate Americans that stroke is largely preventable, treatable and beatable. While stroke is the number four cause of death and leading cause of disability in the U.S., many Americans do not think of stroke as a major health concern.”
I would add that the awareness of stroke-related treatments is also lagging. Yes, do educate yourself on the preventable risk factors of stroke like high blood pressure, smoking, and poor diet. Also arm yourself with knowledge of possible treatment strategies like acupuncture for stroke rehabilitation.
No one ever plans to have a stroke. The most resilient and successful people throw every effective treatment at it that they can.
