$troke $urvivors: YOU COST TOO MUCH-- GET OUT!

Hospitals cost big bucks. So managed care (insurance companies) want survivors out of the hospital ASAP. Because of this rush, doctors and therapists are forced to push the survivor into the next step of rehab. 

The problem is that there is no way to tell what the survivor actually needs. To put this a research-y way "There are varying degrees of spontaneous improvement in arm paresis over the first 6 months after stroke."

Making the "where should they go" decision during the 2-5 days survivors are typically in the hospital a problem. The survivor’s brain has not even begun to reveal what its capable of. In the hospital the survivor's brain has not revealed what it is going to be in one week, let alone one month or one year. Still, therapists and doctors are forced to push the survivor out of the hospital to the next step. And the "next step" choices matter. The "next step" impacts now and for the rest of the survivor's life.

Stroke Has a permanent cure.

My name is Patrick and I live in New York, USA. I saw the address of a doctor in one of the blogs recently.

I (52 age) had a severe stroke on 7th of April 2016. I was diagnosed with Lupus in January this year and was taking Steroids (prednisone) tablets along with other medicine. No history of BP or diabetes nor heart disease. Am a non smoker and drinks occasionally little for social meets. Before I was diagnosed with Lupus this year in January I was given numerous anti biotic by family physicians since they could not diagnose me. I had joint pain and acidity and cough. I never used to take any drugs since I was quite healthy. I Steroids caused the stroke I had, I was not prescribed any blood thinner nor aspirin then. They thought I was allergic to them. However I am not allergic to any drugs

On April 7th I was admitted due to stroke and underwent surgery on right side of the brain to stop bleeding and swelling. They retained my bone flap in freezer and on September 20th I had surgery to restore my bone flap which was very successful. I am now able to talk and eat without any help. my speech is quite clear , though not like before. I walks slowly with the help of cane. But cannot walk long. I cannot move my left leg and hand

But when I took Dr Ben Herbal medication, for one month,I was completely cured, now I can move all part of my body.speak clearly and walk freely. If any one needs his help, contact him Via
