The other day I received a call from a patient, “Dr. Taylor, do you think you can I can get a treatment from you? Lately, I have been having a lot of dizziness and light-headedness.”

Now just think about that for a minute.

Why would someone want to see a chiropractor if they are dizzy and light-headed?

Well…

probably to find out what’s causing the dizziness and then get rid of it?

It turns out she has been under a lot of stress recently and as a result, kicked out a few bones in her neck, upper back and even cranium.

Once these were gently put back in place, all dizziness VANISHED… almost immediately.

Now think about this for a moment.

What happens if this problem is not corrected?

Is it possible the problem can become more complex and difficult to treat?

Not just possible, but very probable.

Dizziness can sometimes be caused by a compromise of blood flow to the brain.

What happens when blood flow is continually compromised to the brain?

Interestingly, after the treatment, the patient mentioned out of the blue, “I hope I’m not going to have a stroke someday.”

Now there is a simple little test that you can do to see if you are at a higher risk for having a stroke.

Go to the mirror and look to see if you have a red dot (cherry angioma) anywhere on your forehead or near the scalp line.

This red dot (cherry angioma) is a mini peripheral aneurysm in the tiny blood vessels near the skin and if you have one on or anywhere near the forehead, you could be at greater risk for a stroke in the future.

When I checked the patient, sure enough, she had small cherry angioma right in the middle of her forehead.

She also had a family history of high blood pressure and stroke which put her even at a higher risk category.

Now some people have told me that they would rather not know if they are at higher risk for a future health problem.

I guess I wouldn’t either if there was NOTHING I could do about it.

But what if you COULD do something about it and better yet, PREVENT it from ever manifesting in the first place?

Yes, then it makes sense to WANT to know what’s going on ahead of time, so you can do what it takes to reverse the trend that is going on in the body.

The patient with the red dot on her forehead immediately started taking an herb and supplement combo that will work towards reversing the effect of the cherry angioma and greatly lower her risk of stroke in the future.

That’s smart medicine!

But you don’t want to rely only on a herb or supplement alone to reduce your chance of disease.

You want to do all that you can and take as many measures as possible to reduce your chances of stroke, especially if there is a history of this disease in a family member (grandparent, parent, sibling, etc.)

So what can you do to lower your risk of the #1 cause of long term disability and the #4 leading cause of death in the United States?

A lot!

Fortunately, your risk of stroke can be greatly reduced by following these 7 steps:

1) Get some form of EXERCISE every day. (Walking. Weight-training. High Intensity interval training. Movement is the key. Try sitting less and standing more. Turn your desk into a stand up desk.)

2) Reduce your STRESS levels. (The higher levels of stress = higher chance of having a stroke. Deep breathing helps reduce stress – inhale 5 sec, hold 5 sec, exhale 5 sec)

3) Improve upon what you EAT. (Eliminate any diet soda. Cut out Nitrates/Nitrites/common table salt, processed meats. Eat more fiber and healthy fats.)

4) LOSE WEIGHT. (The more fat around your organs, also known as visceral fat, the higher the risk of heart disease and stroke.)

5) Cut out the SUGAR. (Sugar can affect insulin resistance, increase free radicals and oxidative stress which can damage the walls of your arteries and lead to stroke.)

6) Get your VITAMIN D. (According to the American Heart Association, low levels of Vit. D doubles your risk for stroke).

7) Get Angry LESS. (Watch the ‘outbursts of anger’ as it has been linked to stroke.

Focus on the positive. Pray. Meditate. Laugh more.)

So there you have it.

One of the first symptoms of stroke is actually having one which is why they call it the Silent Killer.

There’s not much warning involved so do your best to cut it off at the pass and be smart by striving to prevent one from ever happening in the first place.

Have a GREAT day!
