Learning more about strokes

If your clients do have risk factors, including heredity, that would lead them down the path to having a stroke, now is the time to act. No matter how much rebuff you may get about the new foods they are eating, the increase in exercise and activity and the lessening of bad habits, you must insist that each of these changes will be for the best in the end.

In order to get the backup you need to get your client’s (or clients’) life on a new path, it is helpful to accompany them to their medical doctor so that they hear firsthand the personal risk factors they have and what can and should be done about them. If this still does not work (because people are oftentimes stuck in their ways), you can always contact NINDS, the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke at 1.800.352.9424 to get more information.

Sometimes just hearing the same thing repeated over and over helps kick the idea into gear. There are cases where changes have made all the difference in the world and no changes have been severe. Sometimes it takes these actual ‘stories’ for clients to make better decisions for themselves.

Fear, though, is powerful and change is even more powerful. There will be a few clients now and then that absolutely refuse to change their lifestyle one iota and will pay severely for their actions. This is ultimately their choice and all you can do to offset it is to show that With Age Comes Respect.
