How to Identify a Stroke – Written by a Nurse:
During a BBQ, a friend stumbled and took a little fall – she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) …she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.
They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Ingrid went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.
Ingrid’s husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital – (at 6:00 pm Ingrid passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Ingrid would be with us today. Some don’t die – they end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.
It only takes a minute…
A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can “totally” reverse the effects of a stroke. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.
Remember the first three letters of stroke – STR.
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:
Smile – Ask the individual to SMILE.
Talk – Ask the person to TALK (COHERENTLY SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE) like “It is sunny out today.”)
Raise – Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
Out – Ask him or her to STICK OUT HIS OR HER TONGUE
If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of the first three tasks, call 999/911 immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
New Sign of a Stroke — Stick out Your Tongue
NOTE: 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.
A Needle Can Save The Life Of A Stroke Victim – Chinese Professor Irene Liu
Keep a syringe or needle in your home to do this. Although perhaps unconventional, this is an amazing way of helping someone recover from stroke.
When stroke strikes, the capillaries in the brain will gradually burst. When a stroke occurs, stay calm. No matter where the victim is, do not move him/her. Because, if moved, the capillaries will burst. Help the victim to sit up where he/she is to prevent him/her from falling over again and then the bloodletting can begin.
If you have in your home an injection syringe that would be the best. Otherwise, a sewing needle or a straight pin will do.
1. Place the needle or pin over a flame to sterilize it and then use it to prick the tip of all 10 fingers.
2. There are no specific acupuncture points, just prick about an mm from the fingernail.
3. Prick till blood comes out.
4. If blood does not start to drip, then squeeze with your fingers.
5. When all 10 digits are bleeding, wait a few minutes then the victim will regain consciousness.
6. If the victim’s mouth is crooked, then pull on his ears until they are red.
7. Then prick each earlobe twice until two drops of blood come from each earlobe.
After a few minutes the victim should regain consciousness.
Wait till the victim regains his normal state without any abnormal symptoms then take him to the hospital. Otherwise, if he was taken in the ambulance in a hurry to the hospital, the bumpy trip will cause all the capillaries in his brain to burst.
If he could save his life, barely managing to walk, then it is by the grace of his ancestors.
‘I learned about letting blood to save life from Chinese traditional doctor, Ha Bu Ting, who lives in Sun Juke.
Furthermore, I have had practical experience with it. Therefore, I can say this method is 100% effective.
In 1979, I was teaching in Fung Gaap College in Tai Chung. One afternoon, I was teaching a class when another teacher came running to my classroom and said in panting,
‘Ms Liu, come quick, our supervisor has had a stroke!’ I immediately went to the 3rd floor. When I saw our supervisor, Mr. Chen Fu Tien, his color was off, his speech was slurred, his mouth was crooked – all the symptoms of a stroke. I immediately asked one of the students to go to the pharmacy to buy a syringe, which I used to prick Mr. Chen’s 10 fingers tips. When all 10 fingers were bleeding (each with a pea-sized drop of blood), after a few minutes, Mr. Chen’s face regained its color and the life returned to his eyes, but his mouth was still crooked, so I pulled on his ears to fill them with blood.
When his ears became red, I pricked his right earlobe twice to let out two drops of blood. When both earlobes each had two drops of blood, a miracle happened. Within 3-5 minutes the shape of his mouth returned to normal and his speech became clear.
We let him rest for a while and have a cup of hot tea, then we helped him go down the stairs, drove him to Wei Wah Hospital. He rested one night and was released the next
day to return to school to teach. Everything worked fine.
There were no ill after effects. On the other hand, the usual stroke victim usually suffers irreparable bursting of the brain capillaries on the way to the hospital.
As a result, these victims never recover. Therefore, stroke is the second cause of death. The lucky ones will stay alive but can remain paralyzed for life. It is such a horrible thing to happen.
If we can all remember this bloodletting method and start the lifesaving process immediately, in a short time, the victim will be revived to 100% normality.
If you get stroke victims in hyperbaric oxygen within 5 hours, there will be no permanent effects. Breathing Exercises can actually put more oxygen into the blood faster than a hyperbaric treatment. Doing these exercises would prevent most strokes and if done immediately after having a stroke, may prevent any permanent damage.
