WHAT IS A STROKE?

What is it?
A stroke or “brain attack” occurs when a blood clot blocks an artery (a blood vessel that carries blood from the heart to the body). Or a blood vessel ( a tube through which the blood moves through the body) breaks, interrupting blood flow to an area of the brain. When either of these things happens, brain cells begin to die (necrosis) and brain damage occurs.
When brain cells die during a stroke abilities controlled by that area of the brain are lost. These abilities include speech, movement, and memory. How a stroke patient is affected depends on where the stroke occurs in the brain and how much the brain is damaged.For example, someone who has a small stroke may experience only minor problems such as weakness of an arm or leg. In the case of a larger stroke, paralysis on one side or loss of the ability to speak may occur. Some people recover completely from strokes, but about 60% of strokes will cause some kind of disability.
How is it classified?
1. Ischemic Stroke
Almost 90 percent of strokes are ischemic strokes. They occur when the arteries to the brain are narrowed or blocked, causing severely reduced blood flow (ischemia). Lack of blood flow deprives the brain cells of oxygen and nutrients, and cells may begin to die within minutes. The most common ischemic strokes are:
2. Hemorrhagic stroke
3. Transient ischemic attack (TIA)

How is Hypnosis Used to Assist Stroke Recovery?
A number of the side effects of stroke are issues hypnotists deal with every day: anger, apathy, concentration, compulsion, dignity, memory, plateaus, relationships, self-esteem, and sleep habits.
Hypnosis, with the proper techniques and suggestions, can encourage neuroplasticity - the brain's ability to rewire itself to form new connections to take over a function that was lost to cell destruction. This happens beyond conscious awareness. This does not happen magically or immediately. It requires repetition. That's why multiple sessions are needed for repetition and reinforcing.
Another symptom is chronic pain. This requires a referral from the patient's physician. (Mr. Schuman will be happy to fax the appropriate form to your physician that he can sign and fax back to Mr. Schuman.) Mr. Schuman has a number of National Guild of Hypnotist certifications in Hypnosis Pain Management.
