Are Strokes a “Life Sentence” For Your Loved Ones?

Book Cover © Taking Charge Books, Inc.

"Taking Charge of Your Stroke Recovery: A Personal Recovery Workbook"

 

Dallas, TX – Every second a person in the world suffers a devastating stroke. In the United States, over 600,000 people experience strokes every year and the total number of stroke survivors is estimated by authorities to be more than four million. The result of these occurrences is damaged brain tissue that appears to be irreversible. A staggering 50% of those who survive are left with lifelong infirmities affecting speech, movement and even thought.

Imagine watching a loved one suddenly rendered silent and helpless with crippling brain damage said to be incurable. But what if they could fully recover? Roger Maxwell, author of the new book "Taking Charge of Your Stroke Recovery: A Personal Recovery Workbook" (www.takingchargebooks.com), suffered a massive stroke in his late 40's. Advised he could only “cross his fingers and wait” when insurance-paid hospital rehab ended and left him severely disabled, Maxwell realized he had to take charge of his own stroke recovery.

Maxwell recognized that searching for the keys to recovery from stroke in reams of medical literature was like finding inventions in massive engineering reports – something he was expert at doing. Through his research, Maxwell developed unique methods to rehabilitate his physical health and mental functions. He succeeded overwhelmingly, teaching himself to speak and walk again, to jog and ultimately to run marathons. He now enjoys life unhampered by any disabilities.

Taking Charge of Your Stroke Recovery: A Personal Recovery Workbook is a step-by-step, home-based recovery method that reveals the techniques of recovery proven in clinical studies to be the most effective.

 

Maxwell calls these principles “Recovery Basics.” He shares the following little known facts about stroke recovery:

1. Far more stroke survivors can fully recover from the effects of stroke than currently do. While you are a unique individual, the brain’s structure and function is virtually the same in everyone, so each person has the same capacity to recover if the right things are done. Many scientific studies and reports over the past two decades confirm this.

2. Stroke survivors need to take charge of their stroke recovery to fully recover from stroke. If stroke survivors just wait to see if they will recover while doing nothing, they might not. They have to take action.

3. You can prevent your stroke from becoming a “life sentence”! Being disabled by stroke is like being in prison – and the prison is the stroke survivor’s body. It is worth time and effort to get out of prison!

4. Good brain nutrition is important. We know that cutting off oxygen to the brain for ten minutes can cause irreparable damage. Likewise, the presence or absence of certain nutrients can have a rapid and profound effect on your brain. The right diet and nutrients are crucial to maximum brain healing and health!

5. Doing the right exercises the right way is key. Intensive, aggressive and repetitive exercise and practice are the best at helping people improve anything, including recovering from stroke disabilities.

 

In this innovative book, Maxwell tells people exactly what to do to complete their stroke recovery after they get home from the hospital (and what nutrients can help). Whatever the stroke defects, and whatever the reader wants – such as ability to walk unaided, speak better, a “sharper” mind, a better memory, or reduced pain – this book will help people achieve it.

About Roger Maxwell

Roger Maxwell says that when he first suffered the stroke, all his functions were affected except for thinking. As an experienced patent attorney who understands intensive research, he was able to develop the “right things” to do, step by step: everything from forms of exercise, nutrition, and rehabilitating thinking skills, to how your caregiver can best help. The pages of this book include a choice of recovery plans, goals, worksheets and complete instructions. He credits his wife and caregiver, Kathy, as well as co-author Daveda Lamont, for helping provide the clear roadmap to recovery found in “Taking Charge of your Stroke Recovery: A Personal Recovery Workbook.”
