Transient ischaemic strokes (TIAs) are transient focal disturbances of neurological function. Attacks may revert spontaneously or leave lasting sequelae, especially if not attended to in the first few days. Symptoms include temporary derangement of consciousness, transient paralysis, loss of sight or speech, or failure to recognise familiar faces etc. One or more TIAs often precede a major stroke. Treatment by acupuncture and Chinese herbs, along with appropriate lifestyle changes, can be very important in preventing sequelae and recurrence after such strokes. And, as the following article shows, Oriental medicine can be used right from the onset to treat such attacks successfully.
