Religion and Science

They say where science ends, religion begins. Religion is surely complimentary to science. This is so true for neurology. Many a time we do not have explanation for rare neurological disorders. People suffering from disabling conditions for which no cure is available question themselves as to why only they are suffering. Religious belief gives them strength.

Healthy or Unhealthy Lifestyle?

Nobody has an answer why a person who has lived a health way suddenly is afflicted by a rare neurologic disorder. The other man who has an unhealthful lifestyle does not seem to be suffering. Remember, not all smokers get lung cancer and one can get cancer for no apparent reason. That definitely does not mean we should indulge in a self injurious behavior.

My Advice

My advice to anyone diagnosed with a neurologic disease is - Stay positive and gather the courage to face it, of course with proper medical help.It could be a simple thing, like tension type headache or a disabling degenerative disease like motor neuron disease or Alzheimer dementia. Please feel free to contact me for any opinion related to the diseases of the nervous system.

Stroke is a leading cause of death world over. It is the third most common cause of death after heart disease and cancer. Stroke is a medical emergency.
