Post Stroke

NHSC recommendations for Post Stroke Infirmities

Primary recommendations:

Magnetic necklace and bracelet – Wearable magnetic products increase strength, which helps to overcome the residual effects of a stroke.  The bracelet should be worn on the side that was affected by the stroke.  Many people also feel that these magnetic products stimulate their nervous system.  Research also indicates that a magnetic field allows for increased blood flow.  The bracelet and necklace should be complemented with the magnetic insoles noted below.  

Additional benefits:

  • Increased strength & energy (15% or more, usually; this is incremental as you add more magnetic products).
  • Better balance (i.e.: stature & stability).
  • These factors are enhanced with the addition of the magnetic shoe inserts.
  • Reduced blood pressure.

PowerStride Magnetic Shoes Inserts -- These magnetic shoe inserts are made to stimulate the feet and lower leg. Research and personal experience indicate that they increase circulation.  They also significantly increase balance/stability and overall body strength and energy.  (Again, these results can be demonstrated with the simple tests outlined on pg. 15 of our catalog.   The Weintraub study, a 47 hospital, double-blind study centered at the Medical College of New York,  has shown the beneficial effects of the magnetic shoe inserts on neuropathic pain (i.e.: neuropathy).    

Note: Wearable magnetic products can be put just about anywhere there is discomfort, loss of feeling, or weakness (Ex: Lower back, knees, shoulders, etc.).

NHS Magnetic/Infra-red Sleep System - consisting of a magnetic mattress pad, a space age foam Magnetic Pillow, and a special Comforter, which has Far Infra-red properties for acid neutralization.     

  • Research indicates that a magnetic field improves circulation, allowing for improved recovery from discomforts, and better overall body functioning.  
  • The far-infrared materials in the sleep system help neutralize acids (i.e.: toxins) within the body to maintain proper pH (slightly alkaline).  Acidity in the body can cause discomfort, and can raise the chances for disease to take hold.
  • Studies and our experience have shown that people sleep more soundly with this system, and ultimately require less time in bed (usually about ½ hour less).

Ensure Proper Nutrition:  Strokes can occur, at least in part, as a result of nutritional deficiencies.  Having this condition can actually increase your nutritional needs, as your body is fighting to regain health.  

  • Nutritional supplements can help ensure that your body has the nutrition it needs to accomplish the healing and maintenance processes.
  • We offer an exceptional line of nutrition supplements that were developed through collaboration with a gifted herbalist, and are made here in the United States to pharmaceutical standards.  They contain the most effective ingredients, from the highest quality sources available, to accomplish their targeted purpose.  The simple Muscle Response Test outlined on pgs. 16 & 17 of our catalog will help you to choose the supplement(s) that your body needs most.   This test method, which is used by the large majority of Herbalists, Naturopathic Physicians and Acupuncturists, allows you to get objective, measurable feedback from your body as to what it needs to optimize its health.  
  • If you are in the Tri-Cities area, we can do this testing for you.  If you are not, you will find that it is simple to do for your self.  No special skills are required; just follow the directions on pgs 16 & 17 of our catalog.
  • If you are outside our area, we have standard formulations that we would recommend as preventive maintenance for those who have had a stroke.
  • Of particular interest will be antioxidants, Omega 3 fatty acids, and garlic supplements.


Secondary recommendations:

Magnetic Seat Pad – Improves circulation and comfort, similar to the Magnetic Mattress Pad, but for use during the day.     

MagFiltered Water System - Water is critical and the body must be well hydrated. We recommend MagFiltered Water. This water has been through these processes:

  • Filtration that remove chlorine and all sediments (Chlorine is a significant drying agent).
  • Exposure to a strong magnetic field to break down long molecular chains, making the water more bio-available (i.e.: easier to get into and out of the body’s cells, improving detoxification potential).
  • Minerals are left in the water for improved alkalinity vs. distilled or reverse osmosis filtered water.  A healthy body is slightly alkaline.  Disease can establish itself much more easily in an acidic environment.

Recommendation: We, along with most health practitioners, recommend drinking the following amount of water each day: body weight in pounds divided by 2 = the number of ounces for daily consumption. For example, a 160 lb. person should drink 80 oz. of water each day.  This can be reduced 10 to 20% when MagFiltered Water is being consumed vs. other forms of water, due to its greater hydration efficiency.
