Description

DO NOT ENROL ON THIS COURSE UNLESS YOU HAVE WATCHED THE SAMPLE LESSONS AND ALSO READ THIS COURSE DESCRIPTION. IT DOESN'T MATTER WHETHER THIS IS PAID FOR, A GIFT OR EVEN...FREE. IT STILL TAKES TIME TO WATCH. MAKE SURE YOU REALLY WANT TO DO THIS COURSE. THANK YOU.


In 2016 I suffered a mini-stroke. Since then I have been researching possible ways to reduce the risk of me getting a stroke - either mini or full-blown. Apparently up to 90% of strokes can be prevented with lifestyle changes.

This course is the result of my own research.

I am NOT a doctor. I am NOT medically qualified. I am NOT speaking on behalf of any organisation.

These lectures are simply my thoughts as I try and spread the word about risk factors. I am also trying to raise awareness - which is why sometimes the lectures may seem to contradict. This is to encourage discussion.

I triple stress: these lectures are just my own research. I am NOT giving out medical advice.

But I am trying to encourage people to think about their own risk and to seek medical advice where needed.

What makes this course a success? If it encourages you to reduce your own risk!
