What exactly is stroke.
“A stroke, or cerebrovascular accident (CVA), is the rapid loss of brain function(s) due to disturbance in the blood supply to the brain. This can be due to ischemia (lack of blood flow) caused by blockage (thrombosis, arterial embolism), or a hemorrhage. As a result, the affected area of the brain cannot function, which might result in an inability to move one or more limbs on one side of the body, inability to understand or formulate speech, or an inability to see one side of the visual field.
A stroke is a medical emergency and can cause permanent neurological damage, complications, and death. Risk factors for stroke include old age, hypertension (high blood pressure), previous stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA), diabetes, high cholesterol, cigarette smoking and atrial fibrillation. High blood pressure is the most important modifiable risk factor of stroke. It is the second leading cause of death worldwide.” Wikipedia

Removing certain things from your diet is just as important than adding herbs or changing your diet.
Things to avoid – Sodas, dairy, meat, salt, fried foods
The American Heart Association and Stroke Association advise limiting your intake of cholesterol, animal
fats, trans fat-laden partially hydrogenated vegetable oils and tropical oils. Foods prepared with these fats may also increase your cholesterol levels and your risk of heart disease. Check food labels to determine if these fats are present, and if you are preparing food at home, replace them with monounsaturated and polyunsaturated oils, such as olive or canola oil.
Diets high in sodium may lead to high blood pressure. Hypertension and pre-hypertension, or borderline high blood pressure, may significantly increase your chance of another stroke. The University of Maryland Medical Center states that restaurant foods and processed foods contribute to 75 percent of the daily sodium intake of Americans. If your diet is high in frozen and canned foods, you may be consuming upward of 1000 mg of sodium per 8-oz. serving. The recommended daily intake of sodium is no more than 2400 mg.
Foods to eat which have been shown to help
The greatest dietary culprit in stroke causation was meat and dairy products. Consumption of these products result in excess production of mucus, plaque, and other hardened substances that obstruct arterial blood flow throughout the body in general, the brain in particular and resulting in ischemia.
A vegan diet and/or raw foods diet is best for healing and optimal health purposes.
Vegetable juices will greatly help to remove accumulated arterial plaque and debris in the body. Juice plenty of green vegetables like Celery, Parsley, and Spinach.
Fruits like wild blackberries, apples, cherries, plums, pears and limes.
Herbs like cacoa bean, Cayenne, Ginger, Cinnamon, Butcher’s Broom, Gotu Kola, Cranesbill, Goldenseal Root, Manjistha, Holy (Blessed) Thistle, Gingko Biloba, and Mullein Leaf.
Magnet therapy is very beneficial for stroke recovery. Magnets enhance circulation by causing minerals to spin in the blood and thus causing friction (heat), which causes blood vessels and arteries to dilate which improves and enhances circulation, and thus blood, oxygen, and mineral flow.
The crystal Melanite, a variation of Garnet, is very helpful for stroke recovery. It can be used for elixir purpose or can be applied to the forehead.
Think about performing yoga or deep breathing exercises. These techniques will undoubtedly help improve blood and oxygen flow in the body as well as improve the circulation of “chi” in the body. Rebounding is good for people with arthritis who want to exercise on a easy surface not concrete or asphalt.
