Video: Stroke and Dementia

When Stroke Becomes Dementia. Dr. Amy Brodtmann Lecture

Published on Nov 20, 2014

SSTattler: Very excellent lecture. The lecture takes about 37 minutes but you, especially stroke survivors, have to watch this... After the lecture there is about 20 minutes for Q&A - excellent as well! People typically have problems with thinking, speech and memory immediately after a stroke - but they usually recover.

But one in three stroke survivors - even those who make a good recovery - slides into dementia. It might take two or three years to occur and the reasons have never been explained.

The Florey is trying to find out why it happens and how we might intervene to help those likely to suffer.

Dr Amy Brodtmann is a neurologist and a senior member of the Florey’s Stroke Division. She is the co-head of our Division of Behavioural Neuroscience. Dr Brodtmann is an NHMRC clinical career development fellow and is managing a longitudinal study of changes in brain volume and cognition following stroke.

Stroke, White Matter Disease and Alzheimer's Disease: Can Canada Avoid an Epidemic of Dementia?

Published on Oct 11, 2013

In this video, neurologist Dr. Sandra Black, Centre for Stroke Recovery Sunnybrook Site Leader, discusses the complex relationships between covert stroke (small strokes that cause no obvious symptoms), white matter disease, Alzheimer's Disease and dementia. Her conclusions are alarming: within a generation, if nothing is done, these diseases will result in an estimated 1.5 million cases of dementia. Caring for this population will cost a staggering $150 billion a year. Watch the video to learn more about this alarming trend, and what Canadians can do to head off the looming epidemic of dementia.

My Theory on Dementia, Blood Pressure & Stroke - Dr. Eric Berg DC

Published on Mar 15, 2015

Dosages to try:
  • Healthy normal person - Vitamin D3 (10,000 IUs) + Vitamin K2 (MK-7) (100mcg) per day 
  • Unhealthy person - Vitamin D3 (30,000 IUs) + Vitamin K2 (MK-7) (300mcg) per day
Vitamin D and K2 work together and help to mobilize calcium. You may want to consume both vitamins, in the morning with butter or coconut oil for better absorption (due to being fat soluble). Vitamin D3 is about absorption of calcium and vitamin K2 is about directing where calcium goes - both working together to keep your arteries and soft tissues clean and your bones strong.

Unless you have osteoporosis, I would not recommend taking extra calcium. Instead consume some cheese on a daily basis. Most of the calcium in the body is recycled so adding more, is not needed. Never consume calcium carbonate (limestone) as your calcium.

If you take calcium and vitamin D without K2, you may be in danger of excess calcium build up - calcification of your vessels. Yet K2 is a powerful inhibitor of calcification of soft tissues.

Stroke and Dementia

Published on Feb 24, 2015

Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability in Canada – it is estimated that more than 400,000 Canadians are living with the effects of stroke.

Stroke, dementia and heart disease share common risk factors and each increases the risk of the other. Risk factors for stroke, dementia and heart disease can be mitigated by the same healthy lifestyle changes, i.e. exercising, eating right, challenging the brain and staying social. The public, physicians, patients and their care partners need knowledge and strategies to address disease prevention, early diagnoses and disease management

Living With Dementia and Stroke or Coronary Heart Disease: Information for Consumers

Published on May 25, 2015

A combination of dementia and stroke or coronary heart disease can result in a unique set of challenges for people living with these conditions and their carers. All three conditions have similar risk factors meaning it is not uncommon for a person to be living with more than one of these conditions.

Alzheimer's Australia VIC has created a toolkit suitable for all medical and healthcare professionals - GPs, nurses, personal care workers, community aged care workers, and others - and which also provides information for community members and people living with dementia.

In addition, you can read about dementia and HIV, as well as dementia and diabetes. Each of the three topics has downloadable resources to help you help others with dementia.

Nun Study-Brain Health/Alzheimer's/Dementia/Stroke/Brain Exercise

By studying the brains of 678 nuns -- at the convent of the School Sisters of Notre Dame and six others in the order, in Connecticut, Maryland, Texas, Wisconsin, Missouri and Illinois -- Dr. David A. Snowdon, an epidemiologist at the University of Kentucky, and colleagues have come up with some clues to warding off dementia and Alzheimer's. Dr. Snowdon hopes his study will encourage people to do things to ward off the disease, like quit smoking and other stroke-causing behaviors, and read to children to stimulate language development. His current project involves analyzing old photographs of nuns for personality clues in their face muscles to see if personality correlates to Alzheimer's or longevity. Even more amazing....the brain seems to be able to build new pathways around the pathology!
