Treating Stroke: Immediate Results Come From Confidence!

You must know that stroke is a medical emergency.  People who experience a stroke should definitely go the western doctors for immediate, often life-saving treatment.  But once their condition stabilized, combined treatment with Chinese medicine has better results compared to western medicine alone. 

There are numerous examples of stroke patients, who western medicine declared incapacitated, were able to acheive amazing recovery even after one session of acupuncture. 

I must emphasize that stroke patients and their family in face of sudden medical crisis suffer great emotional shock, as if a mountain has collapsed.  They are scared and lack confidence.  Particularly for patients, their sense of dependence increases.  They become dependent on family, doctors, nurses, care-givers, the bed, the wheel chair.  They become dependent on everything that can be dependent upon.  

 Once I went to treat a 80 year old woman who suffered a stroke.  Three month post-stroke, she has underwent many western and alternative treatments.  When I saw her, she was lying completely flaccid in the bed, with her head lolled to the side, seemingly without any strength to move herself.  I spend an hour in meticulous treatment to stimulate her self-healing energy of her body.  Assessing her condition and response to treatment, I determined that she was capable of sitting up.  However, I encountered opposition from both the family and the patient when I asked her to practice sitting up.  They didn’t believe it was possible and were fearful for trying.  After patient encouragement, I finally persuaded them to sit her on a stool and surround her on all sides with people to prevent a fall.  After a instant of wavering, she suddenly found the strength to right herself with her back straight.  Then, her neck straightened and she was able to look left and right without trouble.    

I’ve also treated younger stroke patients who weren’t able to stand or walk.  After treatment I told them to try to stand or walk but got fierce opposition from both the patients and the family.  After more urging, those patients who couldn’t stand, stood, those who couldn’t walk, walked.  The family of patients were besides themselves with surprise and joy, hailing a miracle.  However, this is not magic.  It is caused by the stimulation of self-healing energy that momentarily reconnected the neural pathways.  In other words, it is something that patient was capable of . If the patient seize the moment and bravely take the step forward, his recovery would acheive new heights.  

Isn’t it true that in any situation, such as work, school or home life, success require self-confidence?

 Stroke patients often suffer from crisis of self-confidence and tend to rely more on other people.  As an example, I once treated an woman who, three months after a stroke, still couldn’t sit up by herself.  After a treatment session, I urged her to try sitting.  But she declined and said it’s impossible. Her family who were there also said it’s impossible.  But I was persistent and told her I believe she could and she needed to try.  Eventually she did and what do you know?  She could sit up by herself.  The important lesson here is that beliefs about what you can achieve play a big role in self-healing.

    I agree. The first week in Acute Recovery (Saddleback Hospital) I couldn’t read the sports page. What’s that 3rd grade level? I would read maybe two sentences and fall asleep.

    My family were insistant I get an Accupunture treatment immeadiately. They said time was of the essence. I had never had one before but I figured I needed all the help I could get.

    As soon as the treatment was over I tried that same sports page. Wow! It was a miracle. I could read again. I think early treatment helped greatly in stroke recovery.
