Stroke recovery: Lifestyle measures you can do now to slash risk of further brain damage


Lifestyle habits greatly influence these readings, and to help improve your health, it’s good to:

  • Be a non-smoker
  • Limit alcohol intake
  • Eat a healthy diet
  • Engage in regular physical activity
  • Avoid prolonged periods of sitting or lying down.

“Low salt and/or Mediterranean diets are recommended for reducing the possibility of another stroke,” the American Stroke Association stated.

“Stroke survivors are [also] encouraged to exercise or be active for at least 10 minutes, four times a week, or to have more vigorous activity at least 20 minutes twice a week.”

Most patients who have had an ischaemic stroke – from a blood clot to other blockages in blood vessels in the brain – will need medication.
