Our current results show that PTSD in stroke and TIA survivors may increase their risk for recurrent stroke... - Dr. Donald Edmondson, Ph.D

In a new study, many survivors of a first stroke developed symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which increases the risk of a second stroke. The study was published on Jan.7, 2013 in the British Journal of Health Psychology. (1)
As an article discussing the study noted, “One in four people who survive a stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) suffer from symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) within the first year after the event.” (PsychCentral.com) (2)
Dr. Ian Kronish M.D. said, “PTSD is not just a disorder of combat veterans and sexual assault survivors, but strongly affects survivors of stroke and other potentially traumatic acute cardiovascular events as well.” Dr. Donald Edmondson, Ph.D. echoed Dr. Kronish’s sentiments. “Our current results show that PTSD in stroke and TIA survivors may increase their risk for recurrent stroke and other cardiovascular events.” (2)
These are important observations since large numbers of those who have a stroke will have another, and then die.
One study said that “research finds that one out of 12 people who have a stroke will likely soon have another stroke, and one out of four will likely die within one year.” (ScienceDaily.com, 2010) (3)
In other words, those who experience a first stroke are at high risk of having another, stroke soon afterwards. The same research “found 25 percent of people who had a stroke died within one year and eight percent of people had another stroke within one year. The risk for both events rose steadily after one year.” (4)
Recently, scientists discovered the role of viruses in stroke. Several studies have shown that "chronic and/or past infections rather than any one single infectious disease is associated with the risk of stroke." (Grau 2010) (5)
Most doctors do not address the possibility that a latent virus can cause a stroke. By not treating the possible viral infection, they do not help their patients reduce the risk of a second stroke.
Is there a way to eliminate the viral infection that may be the cause of stroke? Yes, there is an antiviral natural product called Muxscle, clinically proven by scientists at the Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) to be effective against latent viruses. (6)
Each capsule of Muxscle contains a patented formula of five all natural ingredients including selenium, camellia sinesis extract, quercetin, cinnamomum extract, and licorice extract. In addition, each bottle is GMP Certified. (8)

polyDNA is a biotechnology company that develops dietary supplements using the unique scientific method developed by Dr. Hanan Polansky, which is based on Computer Intuition.
In addition to his unique scientific method, Dr. Polansky published the highly acclaimed scientific discovery called Microcompetition with Foreign DNA.
The discovery explains how foreign DNA fragments and specifically DNA of latent viruses cause most major diseases. polyDNA developed Muxscle, an antiviral natural remedy that helps the immune system kill latent viruses and prevent secondary stroke.
