Stroke Warning Signs You Shouldn’t Ignore

Strokes are a leading cause of adult disability and the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. It is a “brain attack” that occurs when blood flow to a part of brain is interrupted.

There are 2 major types of strokes: ischemic and hemorrhagic. Ischemic strokes are more common and are caused by a narrowing or blocking of arteries to the brain, resulting in severely reduced blood flow. Hemorrhagic strokes are less common and are caused by bleeding in the brain.

It is important to identify the warning signs of a stroke and get medical help as soon as possible to reduce the risk of serious damage to the brain. This can help lower the risk of death or disability and improve your chances of recovery.

The signs and symptoms may vary from one person to another depending on the type of stroke, the part of the brain affected and the extent of damage. But they all tend to begin suddenly. The most common warning signs of a stroke are:

• Numbness in your arm, leg or face, especially on one side of t…

Simple Medicine: Sage and Honey Cough Syrup

It will probably not surprise you much to learn that I don’t like taking medicine.  While I’m thankful for the availability of strong medicine when it’s needed, I prefer to go with natural methods.  Nature provides so much of the medicine we need, and I like to use what’s right under my nose (and feet, or overhead.)
We have a bumper crop of sage this year, so I am making a few things, including Sage and Honey Cough Syrup.  It’s so simple, but effective.  In fact, this study showed just honey to be more effective than drugstore cough syrup.  Sage is an anti-bacterial, astringent and anti-inflammatory herb, which makes it great for sore throats and coughs.  Sage and honey together make a wonderful cough syrup, and it’s so simple that I think everyone should make a batch.

What You’ll Need
