About 795,000 Americans suffer a stroke every year. It’s the third most common cause of death (after a heart attack and cancer) and the leading cause of mental and physical impairment. Survivors are often left with partial paralysis, speech impairment, drooping face, memory loss, or other consequences. One of every 5 people who survive a stroke needs institutional care within 3 months. It should be a priority to do all we can to prevent a stroke.
What is a stroke?
A stroke is a sudden loss of nerve/brain function caused by vascular (blood vessel) damage. Most strokes (more than 4 out of 5) are ischemic, meaning a blood vessel is blocked (often by a piece of plaque broken loose from an artery wall) or constricted (by an intense spasm) that cuts off the flow of blood to an area of the brain. The other type of stroke is hemorrhagic in which there is leakage from a blood vessel into the brain. It’s less common but more likely to be fatal; up to 52% of victims die within 30 days. So either an area of the brain is deprived of blood (which brings essential nutrients and oxygen) or has blood spewed into it where it doesn’t belong. Brain cells in the affected area can’t function and begin to die. Within a minute, almost 2 million brain cells can die; in a 10-hour course, over a billion brain cells may be killed. Yet, if blood flow is slowed down—not completely cut off—less sensitive brain cells can “hold their breath” for about 3 hours and not die of oxygen starvation.

- Stroke costs the United States an estimated $34 billion each year. This total includes the cost of health
- care services, medications to treat stroke, and missed days of work.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BULLETS BEFORE USING THIS PROTOCOL
- The protocol above is designed to address your issues at the foundational level, and not to treat disease. This means, in our opinion, most of our health problems, short of accident or trauma, are of a dietary nutritional deficiency. The listed protocol or supplement provides your body with essential micro and macronutrients to help and assist normal nutritional balance.
- Daily dosages are in ( ) parenthesis for most protocols; for example (6) means take 6 per day, but spread it out by taking half in the morning and a half in the evening. Some protocols will have more specific instructions to follow.
- MediHerb products, shown in italics, often speed healing response and should be considered for most protocols unless contraindicated.
- We recommend adding the General Health Daily Fundamentals pack to each protocol. This adds to the critical foundational nutrition each protocol needs. It contains Catalyn––an entirely whole-food and glandular broad-spectrum multivitamin, Trace Minerals-B12, and Tuna Omega-3 pearls for your DHA and EPA omega 3 fatty acids daily requirements.
- Spacing out the daily doses throughout the day improves absorption and is strongly recommended.
- Most supplements should be taken with food except for PMG’s, most calcium products, Gastrex, Chlorophyll Complex™, Okra Pepsin E3, Cholocol II, and Zymex II. Also, most herbs work more efficiently if taken away from food.
- Be advised that these nutritional and herbal products are not intended as primary therapy for any disease, but rather to provide nutritional and herbal support to help normalize body physiology and repair.
