Stroke

Good treatments can be expected when we know the exact causes. There are pre-symptoms of ischemic strokes (Clots), and cerebral aneurysm. If there are pre symptoms, it is best to come to the acupuncture clinic. Coming to the acupuncture clinic may influence the patient’s recovery, depending on how fast the patient arrives on the clinic. It can influence whether the patient can later walk, is in a wheel chair, or bedridden.

Pre-symptoms

  1. While shimmering appears in front of eyes, visual impairments happen such as seeing one object as two
  2. Language disorders like slurred tongue
  3. Dizziness
  4. Unexpected and sudden headache
  5. Nausea and vomiting
  6. Sudden loss of physical strength on four limbs, especially on one side: Hemiplegia 
  7. Chest tightness with loss of vision
  8. Neck stiffness
  9. Fainting with severe body twist

Cerebral Hemorrhage

Cerebral hemorrhage usually happens without warning. It is best to go to the emergency room to prevent bleeding. It is desirable to come to the acupuncture clinic as soon as bleeding stops. If you can’t get out of the emergency room due to the hospital policy, please request acupuncture treatments while in the emergency room. This disease has a high risk of recurrence. Therefore, it is very necessary to understand the exact causes for better treatments and prevention.

Western Concept

  1. vascular narrowing caused by aging
  2. hypertension, hyperglycemia, and hyperlipidemia
  3. Family history, obesity, smoking, drinking, and poor eating habits

Eastern Concept & Regimen

Acupuncture and herbal treatments are different for the different symptoms.

Qi deficiency generates dampness. Dampness generates phlegm. Phlegm generates heat. Heat generates shimmering and wind.  r example, imagine ice on the ground in the early spring. Warm sunlight makes shimmering. I call this EMPTY HEAT.

Another example, summer heat makes shimmering or haze from the ground. This is EXCESSIVE HEAT. 
Similar phenomenon happens in the body as happens in nature. Professor Suzuki in Japan found a cloudy haze like cigarette smoke in the cerebral angiography and named it Moyamoya, which means shimmering in Japanese; that is a special cerebrovascular disease.  

Emotional changes are another cause of stroke. Western calls this stress. Where does the stress come from? Stress comes from emotions: anger, joy, thinking too much, worry, sadness, and fear. All excessive emotions eventually affect the heart by making heat.

Emergency care: Rub your thumb gives around philtrum. (Philtrum is the vertical groove between the base of the nose and the border of the upper lip).

How to treat stroke

  1. The first thing to do is to cause perspiration, especially while heat resides in the six yang organs.
  2. If the heat resides in the yin organs, diarrhea is preferable.
  3. The next things are to reverse all original causes: Qi deficiency, dampness, phlegm, and heat.
  4. All the above would be done by herbs and acupuncture treatments. Korean four needle techniques are very good for pre and post stroke.
  5. There is a great exercise for mini stroke. We will teach you how to do it. However once it happens, a stroke devastates a patient and their family. It is best to prevent stroke rather than waiting.
