80-90% strokes are preventable. Learn how. (+ workbook)

80-90% strokes are preventable. Learn how. (+ workbook)

Description
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!
