Two weeks have now passed and I have had a second visit with this client. I am happy to report that there has been significant improvement in her functioning since I last saw her. In addition to this, five days after my second visit, she called me to say that she still has feeling in her arm which, unlike the first session, is not diminishing.

Melatonin is a neurohormone produced in our body by the pineal gland. It is a powerful antioxidant that easily penetrates the blood-brain barrier and is used to treat thrombotic stroke.

The diagnosis and treatment of stroke in children required ability of specialists, as well as many advanced methods. And prevention of heart disease should start early from the person's age and especially for infants and pregnant mothers to avoid a lot of childhood stroke.

While I am still a bit of a worry wart, I also have found that I worry less about things these days. Worry tends to bog me down and put me in a mindset that is not beneficial to my continued progress either physically or mentally. If I can change something that worries me I do. If I can’t change it, I find a way to work around it or just simply let it go.

Harsh winters can be the death of a healthy lifestyle. Once the snow’s on the ground the fireplace is on, the hot chocolate comes out and everyone settles in for a nice lethargic winter. By the time the snow clears the kids can’t remember how to tie their shoes, let alone work up a sweat. Even when the temperatures drop, kids need activities to keep their little bodies moving and their blood pumping. Building snow forts and bringing Frosty to life are fun, but 3 feet of snow and /or frigid temperatures might deter them from too many jaunts into the backyard. Even particularly harsh winters (Canada – I’m looking at you!) can send the most avid skiers and snowboarders running for the duvet. Instead of risking frostbite, why not choose an activity that allows your children to have the best of both worlds… making snow angels when it’s tolerable and taekwondo patterns at night? They’ll stay warm, fit and have fun– winter never looked so good.

In the USA, we have an area known as the "stroke belt". This is a part of the South where stokes are statistically more widespread than in other areas. Specifically, the stroke belt includes North Carolina, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas, and Louisiana. What's odd with regards to the stroke belt is people who live there are more prone to eat more servings of fish in a given week than folks in other regions of the country. So, you should expect people in the South to have less instances of strokes, not more.
