It is dangerous to assume that everything is alright when there is an apparent 100% recovery (patient did not lose mobility). Few people including my late dad did not had any complication from their first stroke. However the second stroke took my dad’s life and I know of few who suffered permanent paralysis. From Chinese healing systems, when the first stroke happens, blockages in certain meridian points would occur. After being discharged, it is important to go for follow up treatment to heal internally and prevent serious complication should the second stroke happen.
Even though the patient seemed to recover fully on the first time of a stroke attack, it does not mean so inside. Usually, the second stroke would result in a severe complication. That is why aside from going to hospital, they would take the stroke patient for traditional Chinese treatment even though the patient seemed to have recovered 100%. I wished I had know about this earlier as my dad suffered complication from his second stroke and passed away. But what has happened has happened. I could not undo the past. All I can do is write about these things in my blog to create awareness.
Update @ August 2013- The actual name is call Origin Point Medicine/therapy invented by Dr Chang Chao Han from Taiwan. I came across this couple who operated out of their own home to treat pain using traditional method which is translated as “ancient point source treatment method” 原始点疗法. The couple does not charge any fees [...]
When we see tragedy or bad things happen to good people, it can really shake our beliefs about life. One wonders, what’s the point in it all- if ‘life’s a bitch….then we all die.’ Today I noticed the sad life story of Keenu Reeves being posted and shared in around in Freethinkers Club’s Facebook photo: [...]
The role of the caretaker is never easy in taking care of a loved one. For 2 years, my uncle lovingly took care of my auntie, who was reduced to a vegetative state as the result of stroke. He would visit her everyday to lovingly speak to her and take care of her- for 2 [...]
Just today, while having my exercise at the park, I saw a man lovingly held his mom as they scrolled slowly at the park. I was not sure of the lady’s condition- it could be that she was either recovering from stroke, or she was undergoing cancer treatment therapy because the way she had walked was [...]
I have been told about the benefits of acucupping by those who have tried it. A number of middle aged ladies refer this treatment as “release dirty blood”. They did not read about this treatment from books but try it through recommendation of friends and relatives and find it to be very effective. Basically, explained [...]
A stroke attack, the doctor may pronounce that the patient would not be able to walk again. Most people would try to accept the fact that the loved one would be bedridden or on a wheelchair for life. Hopefully the person had bought insurance so that the medical fees are taken care off. Sometimes, a [...]
My own dad had high blood pressure and subsequently died from stroke years ago. His death was one of my life defining events that made me want to get to the bottom of a lot of health related issues. I had always belief that his death, like those of many others could have been prevented. [...]
The following is a personal story shared by Dr Jeffrey Chiew, in his book The Millionaire Formula where he writes about mind over matter: When you perform mental programming, you must believe that it will really happen. You must give it a reasonable time to work its wonders. I first came across subconscious programming when [...]
Why let our feelings of unworthiness, loneliness and emotional trauma from childhood prevent us from forming healthy relationships with ourselves and others? Think about it, people who hurt us are now either old and defenseless or dead. They can't hurt us anymore. So why are we still hurting ourselves?
