A stroke, as you know, is caused by hemorrhage in the motor centers of the brain and a pressure or lack of blood supply in that area. In your case, the left side of the brain is affected, causing the right side paralysis. Highly specialized tissue, such as the center nervous system, can not be hurried as to results of cure. The only advice the physician can give when an individual is suffering from such a condition is to take care of the general health as much as possible. Have all foci of infection removed, such as bad teeth, tonsils, etc. A diet largely composed of vegetables and less animal matter would be very good for you to assume.
