Greeting from Dr. Sharad Kasrale
The brain must have a constant supply of oxygen and blood delivered by blood vessels when the supply is cut off or interrupted brain cells begin to die this innocence is known as stroke.
India being the diabetic capital of the world and soon heart attack, stroke as well as cancer capital of the world.
This particular audio will be extremely important for all of you
This falls into two general categories is Ischemic stroke and Hemorrhagic stroke.
Ischemic stroke is when the blood circulation in microcapillaries of the brain is restricted like in arteries of the heart we say that there is a blockage in the microcapillaries of the brain and that is the leading cause of attack that is blockage of blood level in the neck and brain.
While hemorrhagic strokes are the result of bleeding into the brain.
Let’s take a look at the most common types of strokes Ischemic stroke occurs when blood vessels in the brain or the neck are blocked. This blockage cuts off the circulation of blood and oxygen to the brain
Leading causes of Ischemic Stroke
There are three leading causes of an ischemic stroke
Thrombosis we all hear this word very commonly in various articles, newsletters, and publications. Thrombosis is a clot that forms inside an artery in the brain or neck due to cholesterol-filed plaque that dislodges and starts to one-half to two-thirds of all strokes fall into this category.
Embolism is another type of ischemic stroke that is a clot that moves from another part of the body to the brain blocking the essential artery. Most of the blockages in the heart lead to blockages in the brain that is a thumb phenomenon thumb rule. That is why most cardiac patients die out of stroke.
And 30 to 60 percent of deaths of stroke are due to hemorrhagic strokes
Transient ischemic attacks are also known as mini-strokes; they are like an ischemic stroke. Blood flow is temporarily decreased and then you recover as only a momentary patient. The impact of this is very small and then he recovers but still, it is a matter of medical emergency.
Hemorrhagic strokes 30 to 60 percent as I mentioned but high blood pressure is the main cause for these types of strokes.
So one has to maintain the blood pressure levels at a healthy level that is 120 systolic 80 diastolic.
Systolic and diastolic blood pressure levels need to be maintained to restrict your salt levels maximum of 5 grams a day that means throughout the day doesn’t exceed salt more than 5 grams.
Exercise, walking becomes absolutely essential to maintain your healthy blood sugar levels as well as blood pressure levels and also blood cholesterol levels.
Steps to identify stroke
An easy test to identify whether a person has got strokes the first three words S-T-R where
S stands for speak if there is any difficulty in speaking that is a symptom of heart attack
T stands for tongue if you are not able to move your tongue left, right and center then it is an attack
R stands for raise your hand if you are having difficulty in raising the hands or movement of hands it is a symptom of a massive stroke
And another one is the fast test that is F-A-S-T
F means Face changes the smile into the mirror does one side of the face drops
A means Arms you cannot raise your arms as I mentioned earlier
S means Speaking difficulties is another one
T means time to visit your doctor in emergency condition
Normal nutrition which normally helps prevention of heart attack is nothing but to follow anti-inflammatory and anticoagulant foods you can listen to my audio which is specialized in anti-inflammatory foods and anticoagulant foods which are rich in iron foods which are rich in vitamin foods are rich in dietary fibers low in trans fats and also which are enriched with antioxidants which lower your oxidative stress.
Excess consumption of sugar and salt needs to be avoided, alcohol and smoking need to be completely stopped. Too many deep-fried or smoked foods to be avoided as they can interfere with brain neurons very badly.
You are what you eat, think before you eat. Always think before you eat, always have a balanced diet.
A balanced meal having fifty percent (50%) carbohydrates, twenty percent (20%) proteins, and twenty percent (20%) of fat.
Remember zero fat or zero carbohydrate foods are dangerous. Your brain has sixty percent (60%) of fat composition out of 60% fat 50% is omega-3 fatty acids.
So one has to consume nuts and seeds like walnuts, almonds, and seeds like pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds as they are very very healthy for the brain.
Omega-3 fatty acids like omega-3 fish oil or flaxseed or chia seeds even pumpkin seeds are rich sources of omega-3.
Moringa is a powerhouse of nutrients. 92 nutrients, 48 antioxidants, and 71 antimicrobial are really the superfood carotenoid antioxidants are in oxygen radical absorption value capacity.
Carrots, tomatoes, then beetroot, pumpkin, and sweet potatoes all are good for your brain health.
Remember to hydrate your cells at least drink two liters of water with various detoxifying agents as I talked about in detoxification of your body. That means one day you can have pudina water another day you can have tulsi water and on the third day, you can have cucumber water.
Like that detoxifies your body and at least have two liters that are eight to ten glasses of water. Because water is the richest source of oxygen.
And that oxygen is very much essential for the survival of our vital organs and their functioning.
I hope this audio is extremely beneficial for all of you and prevents heart attack.
