World Stroke Day on 29th October 2018
According to the World Health Organization, 15 million people suffer stroke worldwide each year. Of these, 5 million die and another 5 million are permanently disabled.
Strokes are not always fatal, but quite the opposite. FAST is an easy way to remember and identify the most common symptoms of a stroke. The faster your stroke is diagnosed and treated, the better your recovery will be. If you suspect you have a stroke, go to the hospital immediately.

Animal placentas offer great hope in improving the recovery of the thousands of stroke survivors who are living with a range of physical, emotional and cognitive effects of stroke. Naturally dense in nutrients and growth factors, animal placentas stimulate the body’s self recovery process. They help to improve muscular symptoms, by reducing stiffness and pain. Muscle rehabilitation is an important part of recovery after stroke.
