Stroke- Updates

Good day everyone,

I have just receive this info from a friend of mine through an email. Please do spend some time reading this and do share it with your loved one sss. It is never harm to be a little bit health conscious then not at all !

I am not sure about the validity of this email yet but, once again, if it only need to take a simple initiative to save some life, let us do some research and consult the professionals. I have go through the article, the only part uncertain is whether the 4th indicator for stroke is the tongue- true or false? The rest of the content are real deal !

Blood Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue


STROKE IDENTIFICATION

It only takes a minute to read this...


A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.

RECOGNIZING A STROKE


Thank God for the sense to remember the '3' steps, STR . Read and Learn!

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.


Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:


S *Ask the individual to SMILE.
T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
(i.e. It is sunny out today.)
R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.


If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick out Your Tongue

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.





From here, these are my words.

Isn't it simple to identify this disease? But why still many died every year due to this disease? I believe the main causes will be 'ignorance' , 'ego' and stress.


Ignorance -

Ceh, i am not from science field ma, how could i understand all this? Do you have a brain? If you do, pump in some initiative, pray and reach out those who can help, i am SURE you can understand this or any other information/facts.


I am still young wat. I am very health one, always exercise in the morning. There are cases where a student aged 19 who have a heart attack and died on spot, i am not talking about a person who have a physique/ physically appearance of a sumo wrestler... he is a typical , 'thin' normal fella. It is all about lifestyle and genetics-a risk factor.


Can't be, i am a health practitioner/ people who possess knowledge on certain part of science (So wat? You think you are a walking encyclopedia that you know everthing about science and heath? ). I am too busy la, where got time to read and do research? (Well... if there is a chance to increase your life quality and life span, would you reject such an offer? If you say 'yes' - great, good luck in meet your creator earlier , and hope He won't scold a HELL out of you for taking life for granted. Don't to me about religion, i don't believe an angel in human disguise (no human is perfect and complete kindness/ with all virtues) or a HIGH-N- MIGHTY human being, and definitely, you violates your own religion rules every now and then... maybe u just didnt realise. Big or small mistakes, is still mistakes. Violation is still violation...

Ego -

I am rich and knowledgeable, i ate all nice stuffs. Depends on what u ingest/eat. Not necessary expensive food are health foods. 'Knowledgeable'... i am not so certain on it. You know yourself better than anyone.


I have lived long, for sure i know more about you? (Saya dah banyak 'makan garam' dlm kehidupan ini) - Tahniah, mungkin hang akan mati lebih cepat, sungguhpun 'garam' penting dlm hidup, benda tu juga berpotensi utk membunuh anda. Jgn sombong ma, u bukannya Tuhan ma, mana hang tau u hidup berapa lama? Biarpun Tuhan dah bagi satu badan pd hang yg boleh hang control... do u know yourself?


Wow wow, i am a doctor / PhD holder, you are lecturing me? I have been teaching in this field for ages , n u think i dont know about this? U have been in this field, teach n bla bla. Do you preach / practice what u have in your brain? If you do, bravo ! If you dont... i dont want to know. No one is perfect, i don't find it the being in a higher position in life brings much significance in brings u much closer in becoming a 'God'. U r still a mortal - can bleed and die, so... act like a mortal.


Stress- ... perhaps, the bapa of all current ... 'rich' or 'wanted to be rich' disease.


Take a moment to walk into the greenery and enjoy the scenery. Breath, and breath, every now and then, take a deep , long breath. Smile, ask a friend to go for a dinner and put work aside. Laugh, and keep laughing in life even if you don't want to that particular moment.


Work is a must, being rich and healthy are options, and many more to optionsss in life to be mention... identify them, whether they are optionsss or a must in life. Relax, don't keep on digging gold, spend wisely and plan. Kalau dah x mampu, jgn lah beranak ramai, jgn jadikan anak-anak mahupun famili sbg alasan utk 'terpaksa' bekerja lebih kuat n lama...dan bermacam2 alasan. Sendiri cari susah, padan muka. Know the meaning of the words- You bear responsibilities in your own actions n choices in life.



These are some examples...which u may or may not encounter in life but please, do not make reasons out of something unreasonable. N if you know me well... don't give me such a 'reason' for not taking good care of yourself. I'll knock your head soooooo hard and lecture you sooooo long , till you will shed tears ( there is a big difference between CRY and SHED TEARS ).


So, i'll see you living a long , happy and health life ya. Best regards and blessings frm Him always,

ChoyHH
