When you think of home remedies, you might think of honey, tea, or some other natural trick.
But natural tricks don’t work for stroke recovery because we aren’t trying to heal your immune system – we’re trying to heal your brain.
Although stroke paralysis seems like a problem with your muscles – it’s not. It’s a neurological problem.
And while there isn’t a pill that can fix the side effects of stroke, there IS a formula that you can follow at home to help cure stroke paralysis.
The Remedy for Stroke Paralysis
To understand how to remedy stroke paralysis, you need to first understand what causes it.
Stroke paralysis occurs when there is damage to the part of the brain that controls movement. When your brain can’t communicate with your muscles, they won’t move when you want them to move.
Therefore, in order to regain movement after stroke, you need to restore communication between your brain and your muscles, and this can be achieved through rehab exercises that activate neuroplasticity.
Exercise Is the All Natural Cure
Neuroplasticity is the mechanism that your brain uses to rewire itself. When stroke causes damage to the brain, neuroplasticity rewires new areas of the brain to pick up the slack.
Neuroplasticity is activated by repetitive practice.
Each time you repeat a movement (although neuroplasticity applies to everything, not just movement), you create and strengthen new neural pathways in your brain. These pathways will reconnect your brain to your muscles.
The more you repeat your rehab exercises, the better you will get at moving your muscles.
Is There a Pill for That?
As you can imagine, neuroplasticity requires lots of hard work and exercise; and unfortunately, there isn’t a pill for that. So don’t let anyone try to sell you snake oil that promises fast results with little effort.
The only way to heal the brain after stroke is to rewire your brain through practice. You cannot shortcut the hard work required during stroke recovery.
But the good news is that strong work ethic is greatly rewarded during stroke recovery.
If you choose a home therapy program and you stick with it daily – or at least regularly a few times a week – then you will see results.
But What If I Can’t Move My Muscles Enough to Exercise?
If you have post-stroke paralysis, then you probably won’t be able to perform exercises using your affected muscles in the beginning.
Instead, you will need to start with passive exercise, which involves assisting your affected muscles through each movement. This will help trigger neuroplasticity.
For example, when performing shoulder abduction (raising your arm out to a ‘T’), you would have a caregiver assist your affected arm to lift it up and lower it down.
Although you have help and aren’t ‘doing it yourself,’ the movement sends stimulation to your brain and activates neuroplasticity.
With good, consistent practice of passive exercise, you can rewire your brain enough to regain enough movement in your affected muscles to progress to active exercise, where you perform the movement on your own.
It will require a lot of hard work and time to get there, but it’s absolutely possible. There are many success stories that prove it.
Find a Home Therapy System Suitable for All Impairment Levels
Home therapy tools are a great way to see faster results because they’re designed to help facilitate healing in the brain.
A great example is our home therapy device FitMi, which is suitable for stroke survivors of all impairment levels – including those with post-stroke paralysis.
FitMi is unique because it can help you achieve at least 12x more repetition than traditional therapy – even if you have severe impairment.
This intense repetition helps activate neuroplasticity fast so that you see faster results.
