A stroke is when there is not enough blood or no blood getting to the brain. This would then cause the patient to lose their ability to speak sometimes and to lose function in other parts of their bodies.

Sometimes, they can’t regain that function after the stroke. An aneurysm is a disorder that is similar to the cause of a stroke, but this means that the vein that carries the blood to the brain is blocked by something. Instead of the vein remaining blocked, it expands like a balloon. Both should be considered severe disorders.

Scammers are everywhere, and they play their games very well to ensure the right person falls for their tricks. Medical scams are very easy to spot, even with your common sense. Have you ever been introduced to a single drug that can cure close to one hundred diseases?

Don't you think it is counter-intuitive to think a single drug can heal both cancer and HIV? Don't buy drugs and receive treatment that promises quick fixes.

While there are genuine drugs that can do this, but I expect you to think otherwise if you were told that a drug would heal an injury, you just sustained in 6 hours. Do researches about the kind of treatment you want to receive or drugs you want to buy.

You need to cover the basics first before moving on to the second part of the process. This ensures that you are taking all aspects into consideration and you have the necessary information to make a diagnosis.
