Had a stroke. Will bee pollen help me recover?
(BOCA RATON, FL. U.S.)
being a user of bee pollen for over 30 years with what I consider amazing results, I became a victim of a stroke due to an irregular heartbeat. I have been a marathon runner in the past and up to the time of my stroke, an exercise enthusiast, swimming, bike riding and doing a 3 mile walk 5-7 days a week. I am 75 years old and trying my best to get back to myself after the stroke paralized my entire left side of my body. Is there any benifits using bee products to help in my recovery. I still take bee pollen capsules every morning. Thank you for considering my question.
Hello Ed! Thank you for contacting me. Wow, what an inspiration you are to me! I would certainly think that bee pollen would help you in your recovery due to its high levels of amino acids (for muscle repair and brain function) as well as its high levels of other nutrients. Good nutrition is ONLY going to help you recover - it won't hinder you. So I'd say yes, eat as healthy as you possible can and experiment with several tablespoons of bee pollen per day to see if this doesn't help bring back some of your vitality. Unfortunately, I don't have any experience working with stroke victims using bee pollen so I can't offer you any more advice from that standpoint.
Please let me know your progress.
