Stroke

Also indexed as:Cerebrovascular Accident, Transient Ischemic Attacks
Several types of strokes can strike the brain with little warning--but you can cut your risk for future strokes. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.

The right diet is the key to managing many diseases and to improving general quality of life. For this condition, scientific research has found benefit in the following healthy eating tips.

RecommendationWhyGet started
Eat more fruits and veggiesFruits and vegetables appear to protect against stroke and are a good source of potassium, which has been linked to a decreased stroke risk in some studies.
Feast on fishEating fish has been linked to reduced stroke risk in most studies.
Fill up on whole grainsIn one study, women who ate higher amounts of whole grains were at lower risk of stroke.
Sidestep saltToo much salt can contribute to both stroke and hypertension, a major risk factor for stroke. Use less salt to reduce your risk.
Don't drink alcohol to excessHaving one or two alcoholic drinks per day may actually reduce stroke risk, but regular heavy drinking or binge drinking has consistently shown to increase it.
Stay tuned about fatMore research is needed to clarify the relationship between dietary fat and stroke risk, as different kinds of fat appear to have varying effects on different types of stroke. In the meantime, it's a good idea to stick with monounsaturated fats, which are known to be heart healthy, such as olive oil.
