  1. Stroke disability levels plunge with Mediterranean diet

    How to THRIVE and live DISABILITY-FREE after a stroke

    It’s something the mainstream has NO answer for… and by the time they get around to recognizing it, it’s already too late.

    But there is one super simple step you can take right now that can protect you from the worst effects of a stroke.

    It’s not a drug or a vitamin. It’s not a special diet. It’s not even some kind of crazy workout program.

    When I say simple, I mean it.

    New research reveals how a short walk each day – a good habit in any case – can deliver something that no medication in the world can promise.

    It can BLOCK the worst damage of a stroke if you’re unlucky enough to have one.

    This will not only help save your life. It can also do something that’s in many ways far more important.

    It can PRESERVE your QUALITY of life.

    Stroke survivors often struggle after they’re home from the hospital. Sometimes, the problems are temporary and therapy can help.

    But for others, the damage is permanent.

    Patients battle speech and mobility problems. Some lose function in an arm or leg.

    And many struggle with everyday tasks including getting dressed and bathing, which can lead to a loss of independence.

    But not if you get a little movement, and I don’t mean working up a sweat or doing anything uncomfortable or unpleasant.

    Just 35 minutes of low-intensity activity such as a gentle stroll.

    The new study didn’t look at stroke prevention so much as what people did BEFORE a stroke, and how it impacted them AFTER.

    And the older folks who did this one simple task – a daily walk or some other gentle activity – had HALF the risk of severe problems when they eventually had a stroke.

    It’s as if that little stroll was somehow slowly building up armor in the brain, protecting it from the worst of the damage.

    What’s amazing is that so many “healthy habits” that cut the risk of problems such as a stroke often require dramatic changes, and many people can’t pull that off.

    But a daily walk?

    That’s not dramatic at all. Anyone can do it, and you can use that time to multitask. Catch up on your phone calls, walk and talk with a friend or family member, or even just pick up your coffee on foot instead of by car.

    Not into walking? Just about any other activity will do, from swimming to biking to playing a sport. The only requirement is that you pick one – or more – and keep at it.

  2. Could this DELICIOUS treat stop today’s WORST killers?

    Could this DELICIOUS treat stop today’s WORST killers? 

    Take two yogurts and call me in the morning?

    I know that it sounds crazy, but it’s true: Just two servings of yogurt can make a MAJOR difference when it comes to your health.

    And you don’t even have to eat it every day to get the benefits!

    New research shows how just two servings per WEEK is all it takes to cut your risk of some of today’s top killers.

    Here’s the best part: These benefits don’t go to healthy people who aren’t facing much risk to begin with.

    The new study focused on REAL-WORLD outcomes in the very people who need help the most. It looked at older men and women with high blood pressure — who face a higher risk of heart attack, stroke, and more.

    Most of these folks end up taking meds for their blood pressure.

    Some of them take two or three meds or more.

    But maybe all they need is some yogurt!

    In women, the biggest benefit is in heart risk. Eating yogurt will cut your risk of a heart attack by 30 percent and slash the risk of revascularization by 16 percent.

    Guys, those same two servings a day will cut your risk of a heart attack by a fifth.

    And in men and women alike, eating yogurt can cut the risk of major coronary heart disease and/or stroke by 20 percent, according to the study in the American Journal of Hypertension.

    If there were a drug that promised all that, it would be a best-seller — because NONE of the meds currently given out for hypertension can promise all of those benefits.

    It’s just the opposite!

    Many of those drugs work on paper only. They cut blood pressure — so, as far as your doctor is concerned, they do their job. And you think they work, because you can see your numbers coming down.

    But studies show even when the meds cut BP, they don’t always deliver on a lower risk of heart attack and stroke. And thanks to side effects, including fall-inducing dizzy spells, these drugs often end up doing more harm than good.

    You’re better off with natural blood pressure control treatments and a little yogurt.

    The one thing to watch for here is the kind of yogurt you eat, since too many of them are loaded with sweeteners, coloring agents, preservatives, and a mess of other junk.

    Stick to all-natural organic yogurts. Ideally, buy plain yogurt and then add your own ingredients at home — try fresh berries, crushed nuts and even some cinnamon and cocoa powder… all of which will give you extra benefits instead of just empty calories.
