What is a stroke? It's a cardiovascular event that affects the blood vessels that supply blood that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain. If the blood vessel bursts or becomes blocked then that area of the brain can't get the nourishment it needs from blood because the blood can't get to that part of the brain. Nerve cells will die within minutes and the part of the body controlled by these nerves cells can't function properly. Because the cells can't be replaced the effects of the stroke often are permanent.

An important measure, and possibly the most important measure, in preventing a stroke is to maintain a healthy endothelium. The endothelium is the cell layer that forms the surface of the blood vessel walls. If the endothelium remains smooth and intact there can be no plaque deposits or inflammation that can cause blockage.

Recently research has shown that nitric oxide, which is released by the endothelium may be helpful in preventing plaques and also in removing them. In addition, when nitric acid enters a cell it triggers a biochemical reaction the leads to the relaxation and dilation of blood vessels. Under certain conditions it can also reduce the production of free-radicals. All these things add up to a reduced risk of stroke.

A precursor of nitric oxide is the amino acid arginine and arginine can also shrink arterial plaques. There have been studies, which seem to indicate that arginine supplementation improves endothelial function and slows the progression of atherosclerosis, a risk factor for stroke. In addition, improvement in endothelial functions seems to be associated with improvement in blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Resent research shows that many people have a tendency to form blood clots more quickly than normal. This is called hypercoagulation. Fibrin is a by-product of an overactive coagulation system. If fibrin is deposited in the tiny vessels in the brain it can lead to mini-strokes. Enzymes can help reduce clotting because they're fibrinolytic. This means they can help to prevent the fibrin from sticking to the walls of the blood vessels. They also can help separate blood platelets that will improve blood flow and reduce clotting.

Stroke and circulatory disorders ….Certain circulatory disorders also respond well to enzyme therapy. Enzymes can reduce the excess accumulation of fluid in tissues, which is called edema. This reduces swelling and pain and improves blood flow.

In the 1960s, Max Wolf, MD, et al. came to the conclusion that certain enzyme formulas were superior for treating phlebitis, which is a condition that involves inflammation of a vein, usually in the leg, but it can occur elsewhere. Phlebitis and another condition called thrombophlebitis, which is the formation of a clot in an inflamed vein, occur commonly from hypercoagulation or due to trauma to the blood vessel wall. Sitting or standing for long periods of time can cause inflammation and possibly a clot. Symptoms include swelling, pain, and sometimes skin discoloration. This is the disorder that led to the death of news correspondent David Bloom.

Dr Wolf's research has led to other studies on the effectiveness of enzyme therapy. One study showed leg swelling was reduced by more than 50 percent after seven to fourteen days of enzyme treatment and patients were able to cut back on their diuretic medications.
