Medical Science

Albers, Dr Gregory C     The tPa drug breaks down blood clots that cause 85 percent of strokes and restores blood flow to regions of the brain injured by stroke if administered within 4.5 hours of stroke onset. If people receive treatment within 90 minutes they are 3 times more likely to have a complete recovery. There is a risk of serious bleeding associated with this therapy. http://news-service.stanford.edu/news/2005/february23/med-albers-022305.html  http://www.ucihealth.com/physician/Profile.asp?ID=99023966 
 
GI issues - https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/03/190312123714.htm - "A recent study by Allison Brichacek and Candice Brown, researchers in the West Virginia University School of Medicine, suggests that stroke patients' microbiomes, and even the structure of their guts, may still be out of kilter a month after the stroke has passed...Using probiotic supplements or prebiotic foods, for instance (may) help prevent emotional or cognitive decline (in stroke patients)."

"Across 3 continents, brain-damaged patients are reporting remarkable improvements after taking a pill that should make them fall asleep but that, instead, appears to be waking up cells in their brains that were thought to have been dead...
A pill (dissolved) in a little water on a teaspoon and forces it gently into his mouth. Within half an hour, as if a switch has been flicked in his brain," the patient is responding, whereas before his vision, hearing and speech were asleep. 
"Doctors said he would never again see or speak or hear."

Hegstrom, Paul - Broken Children, Grown-Up Pain - www.lifeskillsintl.org -
Subtitle - Understanding the Effects of Your Wounded Past
At the age of 8 Paul was sexually abused by a man.  His mom further traumatized him by washing his mouth out with soap and condemning any sexual curiosity/questions/conversation as shameful/evil/forbidden/etc, resulting in a lifestyle of verbal, physical and sexual abuse with those Paul dated or married.  When Paul became teachable 40 years later, God revealed how to rewire the brain emotionally & physically, such as after a stroke or brain damage.  Paul was left with 40% brain damage after a triple bypass.  After 3 years he regained all his losses. One significant method he found is to read the Bible out LOUD.

"O
n her left shoulder right in this area here I see...was a demonic force and it had arms and legs. It stretched all over into her neck region and her body like this. I just stopped preaching and said, 'Iím gonna take care of the situation in your life right now.' I commanded that force to leave that was in that particular area on her body. I watched that spirit. It dropped off, crawled out the back door, out the door and down the street to the left. By the time that it got to the back door, all of a sudden this lady started raising her voice, sort of not a real loud shout, but shouting and saying, 'Praise God! Halleluiah' and that sort of thing...The lady spoke and said, 'I had a stroke 6 months ago and Iíve not been able to talk for 6 months.  This portion of my body had been affected.' All of that was totally gone."
