Chinese Herbal and Acupuncture Treatment Protocols for Stroke (CVA) - Formulas, Protocols, TCM Diagnoses

The Chinese Medicine treatment of stroke (cva) generally involves arriving at the appropriate TCM diagnosis or pattern. This pattern within the individual is what treatment is based on not the general condition (see treating the cause and not the symptoms).

Stroke occurs when the flow of blood to a section of the brain is suddenly cut off or when a blood vessel ruptures, spilling blood into or around the brain. When this happens, brain cells begin to die, causing numbness or tingling on one side of the body, sudden confusion, difficulty speaking or seeing out of both or one eyes, dizziness, headache, and other symptoms.
