    Coach is Right ^ | 10/19/15 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    A brief video suggests there may be something to the theory that Hillary Clinton is dealing with the early stages of Multiple Sclerosis. In a late summer article, the National Enquirer theorized that Clinton might have suffered at least two strokes and be afflicted with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) which is a disease that inflicts serious damage to the nervous system. MS scrambles messages sent from one part of the brain to another. Normal functioning can at times become uncontrolled and responses to various day to day situations can become highly emotional, inappropriate and manifest without regard for actual circumstances. While...

Ms. Shalala, 74, fell ill after departing the closing events around the Clinton Global Initiative, which was held at the Sheraton New York hotel on Seventh Avenue in Manhattan, according to a statement from foundation officials.

    http://fox4kc.com/2015/09/28/family-...g-mini-stroke/ MARSHALL, Mo. – An elderly man says after he lost control of his vehicle and struck a house, an off-duty police officer held him against his will while he suffered a mini-stroke. James “Jim” Miller, 70, a grandfather and longtime realtor in Marshall, says around 6 o’clock Sunday night he was driving to a Wal-Mart when he suddenly felt dizzy and ill. According to a police report, Miller's pickup veered off the road near south Hawthorne and Sunset and hit a house. In the report, an officer says there was a crack in the house and minor damage to...

    A young mother's birth control pills helped cause her to have a stroke. Bethany Fonseca has a history of migraines, but one particular day, her headache was different. She took pain medication and was about to enter the shower when the room starting spinning and she fell on the floor. "I thought I was going to die," Bethany said. "My only thought ... was just, 'Let me see my kids again one more time.'" She tried getting up but kept falling on the floor. Eventually, an ambulance took her to Baptist South hospital. "They ran some tests, and they...

    NPR ^ | June 19, 2015 5:03 AM ET | Allison Aubrey
    Here's a sweet notion: Eat a little chocolate each day and you could be doing your heart a favor. A new study published in the journal Heart found that habitual chocolate eaters had a lower risk of cardiovascular disease and strokes compared to people who didn't eat chocolate. So, what is it about chocolate that could possibly lead to such a benefit? Well, when you strip out the sugar and milk that's added to chocolate, you're left with the cocoa bean. And it's the compounds in the cocoa that researchers are most interested in. The study is part of a...

    On Sunday, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager would not commit to releasing her health records during the 2016 campaign. Face the Nation host John Dickerson pointed out that “Hillary Clinton had a big health scare when she was secretary of state” and asked campaign manager Robby Mook, “will she release her medial records as part of this campaign?” “I will let Hillary decide that,” Mook answered. “But I can tell you she has been hitting the campaign trail hard.” In 2012, Clinton had to delay her Benghazi testimony to Congress after she fell and suffered a concussion. She later was treated...

    When the study participants were examined according to age, the researchers found that sleeping for more than eight hours a night increased stroke risk only for people who were at least 63 years old. On the flip side, they found that sleeping for less than six hours a night heightened stroke risk for younger people more than for older people. Finally, they discovered that “short” sleepers were more at risk for an ischemic stroke (the kind caused by a clot that blocks blood flow to the brain) while “long” sleepers were more at risk for a hemorrhagic stroke (the kind...

    Conclusions: Recent changes in public health and social support policies recognize the economic burden of informal caregiving. Our estimates reinforce the high economic burden of stroke in the United States and provide up-to-date information for policy development and decision-making.

    Dr. George L. Kraft III, a chiropractor in St. Louis County, is now the owner of a .357 revolver with a six-inch barrel after his attorney successfully challenged Missouri statutes and federal classification that prohibited Kraft from owning a firearm. The state of Missouri disqualified Kraft from the right to own firearms after he suffered a stroke in 2005 until attorney Christopher J. Zellers of the Zellers Law Firm, LLC, gained a judgment in St. Louis County Circuit Court overturning the disqualification after an 18-month legal process. “My client was deemed incapacitated because of a stroke and as a result...

    The new study, which tracked more than 100,000 people from 17 countries over an average of more than three years, found that those who consumed fewer than 3,000 milligrams of sodium a day had a 27% higher risk of death or a serious event such as a heart attack or stroke in that period than those whose intake was estimated at 3,000 to 6,000 milligrams. Risk of death or other major events increased with intake above 6,000 milligrams. Last year, a report from the Institute of Medicine, which advises Congress on health issues, didn't find evidence that cutting sodium intake...

    Scientists say they have devised a helmet that can quickly determine whether a patient has had a stroke. It could speed diagnosis and treatment of stroke to boost chances of recovery, the scientists say. The wearable cap bounces microwaves off the brain to determine whether there has been a bleed or clot deep inside. The Swedish scientists who made the device plan to give it to ambulance crews to test after successful results in early studies with 45 patients. When a person has a stroke, doctors must work quickly to limit any brain damage. If it takes more than four...

    Is Hillary Clinton’s health an issue for 2016? You bet it is, and well it should be. -snip- On Dec. 7, 2012, she disappeared from view — without a word. Three days passed before the State Department said the secretary of state was “under the weather” as it announced she would cancel a planned trip to the Middle East. -snip- And this wasn’t her first episode. In 1998, she was treated for a blood clot in her leg. She fainted during a 2005 speech in Buffalo, N.Y., broke her elbow in an unexplained 2009 fall in the State Department garage,...

    Do any freepers have any experience with High Blood Pressure? Mine has been running high for a few years. Usually, about 139/90. I have had one significant problem that might have been related. 5 or 6 years ago a retinal occlusion caused me to lose about 70% of the vision in my right eye. It started with "lightning" flashes and the next day if you were standing 15 feet from me your face would be an oval with no features. After about 6 weeks of steroidal eye drops the vision returned to normal. More recently in the past couple of...

High fruit and vegetable intake can lower blood pressure and improve microvascular function, the researchers said in the study, which was published in the American Heart Association's journal Stroke.

    Tech Times ^ | Feb 17, 2014 | Rhodilee Jean Dolor,
    Obesity comes with a number of life threatening risks. The condition, for instance, is linked to cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and even cancer. However, loneliness is a more threatening killer than obesity, at least among elderly people. The researchers also found that extreme loneliness increases an older person's risks of early death by 14 percent which means that loneliness has a double the impact on early death as obesity. Cacioppo explained that chronic loneliness is associated with higher levels of the stress hormone cortisol, which raises risks of strokes and heart attacks. It is also linked with high blood pressure and...
