If you have not heard the sad news today, former 90210 star, Luke Perry has passed away from what medical experts say was a MASSIVE stroke. He will be greatly missed!
In Luke’s honor, I am dedicating this nutrition post to helping educate the world on natural ways to prevent a stroke.
Signs of a stroke include:
weakness on one side of the body
numbness of the face
unusual and severe headache
numbness and tingling
Too many people ignore the signs of stroke because they question whether their symptoms are real. My recommendation is, don't wait if you have any unusual symptoms! Listen to your body and trust your instincts. If something is off, get professional help right away.
