Prevention of stroke

There are two kinds of stroke: haemorrhagic and ischemic. Haemorrhagic occurs when a blood vessel breaks. To protect against this kind of stroke you need to ensure that your body’s tissues are strong – and that mean taking in large doses (3,000 mg plus) of vitamin C (ascorbic acid or sodium ascorbate powder) per day.

Life Extension explains: “Ischemic stroke is responsible for 80 percent of all strokes (NINDS 2005). There are two kinds of ischemic stroke. The first, a thrombotic stroke, results from a blood clot (thrombus) forming in a vessel inside the brain and cutting off the blood supply to the tissues served by that vessel. The second, an embolic stroke, occurs when a clot forms somewhere else in the body, breaks off, and travels to the brain.”

My own recommendations

• A strong (ie very hot) cayenne pepper tincture (150,000 scofield units) I make my own by putting a handful of hot pepper in a litre of standard vodka

• Olive oil (cold pressed, extra virgin) – for cooking as well as salads, sauces etc

• Ginger – fresh ginger soaked in hot water
