For many years we were told that brain nerves simply die as we get older. This is not exactly true. It has been discovered that many cells migrate towards the area of the brain which is stroke affected, but most do not survive the migration or cannot actually move into the area where it is needed.
These cells are starved for nutrients and until scientists can work out how to re-invigorate them to encourage the cells to migrate. It took a long time for scientists to understand and discover how stem cells worked, so it will probably take a long time for this new approach to work. But scientists are making progress, so something good is bound to happen in the future.
Hints and Tips
It is so important to never lose hope. Stay positive and accept what you have been dealt and work at moving forward at all times. But you will not physically be able to do this if you cannot mentally do it!
