Stroke

A stroke occurs when the blood supply to part of your brain is interrupted or reduced, depriving brain tissue of oxygen and nutrients. Within minutes, brain cells begin to die.

During a stroke, the brain does not receive enough oxygen or nutrients, causing brain cells to die.  Ischemic stroke: This is the most common type of stroke. A blood clot prevents blood and oxygen from reaching the brain.

Hemorrhagic stroke: This occurs when a weakened blood vessel ruptures and normally occur as a result of aneurysms or arteriovenous malformations (AVMs).Transient ischemic attacks (TIAs): Also referred to as mini-stroke, these occur after blood flow fails to reach part of the brain. Normal blood flow resumes after a short amount of time, and symptoms cease.

Andrew Amigo, Founder of The Accomplished Brain, has an in-depth understanding of how the brain and nervous system work. He also has an incredible understanding of how all structures connect together. With this unique knowledge and understanding, Andrew can help his clients a lot.

Andrew has been able to help a lot of clients who have had a stroke. “I had a stroke that affected my short-term memory especially my verbal memory.  Remembering people’s names that I first met, and my speech were a big challenge.  I was referred to Andrew because I heard he had good outcomes with helping people recover from strokes. After working with Andrew my short memory improved by 70% and my speech was significantly better”.
