May Monthly Awareness Polish Box: Stroke Awareness

***Discount Samples***

May is National Stoke Awareness Month

Is that’s time of the month again when we here at the Queendom get our edumakation on. LOL, that was a joke. But seriously, it’s the time of the month when I try to bring you a little knowledge to go with your beautiful polish fix. Next week begins National Stroke Awareness Month and did you know that strokes are the 5th cause of death and leading cause of disability in the U.S. No? Neither did I! Keep reading to find out a little more about stroke, ways to minimize your risk and understanding the warning signs.

Q: What is a stroke?

A: “Stroke is a disease that affects the arteries leading to and within the brain. A stroke occurs when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain is either blocked by a clot or bursts (or ruptures). When that happens , part of the brain cannot get the blood (and oxygen) it needs, so it and brain cells die.” In laymans terms, “a stroke is a medical emergency that happens when the blood flow to your brain is interrupted. Without blood, your brain cells start to die.”*

Q: What are the different types of stroke?

A: “There are 3 different main types of strokes, Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA), Ischemic, and Hemorrhagic. It’s estimated that 87 percent of strokes are ischemic.”*

Q: What can I do to prevent a stroke?

A: Here are a few ways to reduce your risk of stroke. 1) prevent or control high blood pressure, 2) eat healthy, 3) get quality sleep, 4) be physically active, 5) maintain a healthy body weight, 6) quit smoking (if you’re a smoker), 7) control blood sugar and 8) manage cholesterol*
