Statistically a third of people who suffer a stroke die within 10 days of the event, a third are likely to make a full recovery and a third will be left disabled.
So it seems logical to rather think preventative as you only have a 33.3% of completely recovering from a stroke.
The irony of the situation is that it is very easy to arm your body sufficiently against stroke and other dreaded diseases through proper nutrition but so few people will make the necessary effort to find out about it and to actually follow through on it.
Studies show that by naturally increasing your potassium levels with fruits and vegetables (not supplementation) you are almost twice as likely to recover from a stroke than a person with low potassium levels.
High potassium fruits include apricots, bananas, cantaloupe,and citrus fruits. Veggies are potatoes, cauliflower, lima beans and asparagus. Other foods are grain products, red meat, poultry and seafood.
Researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health, found that you can prevent the risk of stroke by increasing dietary levels of alpha-carotene, beta-carotene and lycopene.
You can naturally increase alpha-carotene levels by eating more carrots, winter squash, tomatoes, green beans and cilantro. Beta-carotene levels can be increased by eating more carrots, strawberries, cantaloupe, broccoli, squash and sweet potatoes. Lycopene can be found in tomatoes, pink grapefruit and watermelon.
There have it prevent stroke naturally and improve your chances for a full recovery by more that 50% should you suffer one.
The question remains, what are you going to do about it?
