New Research Reveals Link to Stroke and Stress

Emotional stress is associated with the increased risk of vascular disease according to this month’s new study published in the Lancet Medical Journal. Australian Potentialist Maggie Wilde agrees this is concrete validation that will have a positive impact on understanding and perhaps even prevention of stress-related symptoms and vascular disease.

The new findings will assist in many areas providing people with proven opportunity to be pro-active in health, identifying stresses and taking steps to make real change in the wellbeing of the mind and body.”

Clinical data collated by a team led by Dr. Ahmed Tawakol has established a consistent connection between emotional stress and vascular stress. It is the very first study to link regional brain activity to subsequent vascular disease.
The result was no surprise to Maggie, a dedicated therapist who has spent the last 11 years studying the human brain.  The inspiring mentor and best-selling author’s life was tipped upside down at age 39 when she suffered a life-threatening stroke leaving her with a mountainous journey to recovery. Subsequent stage 4 kidney failure, vascular disease, heart infections, pneumonia and an epilepsy diagnosis, gave Maggie a first person insight on brain trauma, stress and the need to re-think life and how to achieve a ‘new normal’. This new and enduring path lead to a decade of research which transitioned into educating others, creating dynamic programs for brain rewiring and thus the Potentialist was born.
“To say this interrupted my life is an understatement, but the need to survive, the need to know more also meant that my professional curiosity was triggered. I soon discovered the brain’s plasticity and very real capability for repair, out of my own need for survival, which was somewhat controversial at the time.” Says the best-selling author
“This latest result in neuro science is an exciting time for brain research,” says Maggie
“In my experience, emotional stress can lead to or exacerbate a variety of physical challenges for the body, from short-term health issues right through to chronic disease and indeed vascular disease. Not to mention the implications of chronic stress triggering subconscious choices that can lead to potential anxiety, stress eating, and other unhealthy habits. All of which adds to the stress on our brain and vascular system. So this new scientific evidence is a real tick in the box of progress and validates the work we have been doing to assist people in brain reconditioning by managing unhelpful triggers to alleviate unnecessary stress.” says Maggie.
