stroke recovery

You have mentioned that hydrogen peroxide can help reverse some of the damage left over by a stroke if instituted early enough. How long is early enough? How long is too late? My husbands stroke occurred on 6th March 04. It is a moderate stroke and he has recovered partially. Is hydrogen peroxide treatment given in an IV? How much and how often? Can it be alternated with chelation? Will he get his speech back and fine motor movement with hydrogen peroxide if instituted soon? I have heard DSMO added to H2O2 also helps. Can you tell me about this and where it can be obtained if recommended?

There are two important factors in recovery from stroke: blood rheology (flow characteristics) and oxygen delivery. After a stroke there may be a central necrotic (dead) zone which will never recover and a peripheral zone (called a penumbra) which could be described as a surrounding area of brain tissue which is not dead, but rather asleep. The point of therapy is to awaken, sort of "kick-start" this penumbra. Deliver of a high concentration of oxygen is vital to any recovery which might happen from nature alone. Recovery is often complete which means that there was never a central necrotic zone (it was all penumbra). In your place I would seek a doctor who could offer hyperbaric oxygen, IV hydrogen peroxide and DMSO. (DMSO helps the rheology of the blood.) I would also hope to find a doctor who understands fibrinogen monomeres and has a dark field microscope with which to identify them. If present (and they almost always are in people with strokes), these should be handled with oral protease and perhaps heparin as well. Also, the red blood cells of people who have stokes are typically seen by dark field microscope to be clumping and stacking together. This inhibits the release of oxygen and must be corrected for the best therapeutic result. (People with this condition have cold hands and feet as the red cells cannot release not only their oxygen, but their heat as well.) As far as a time limit goes, obviously the sooner the better, however it is never too late to give up hope due to the probability of the existence of a penumbra even years after a stroke.
