Stroke Risk (NAPSA)-Sebastian Baker felt funny. He looked in the mirror and his reflection was off. Suddenly, he crashed to the floor and realized his left side was numb. Baker, 46, had suffered a stroke. Like many of the 795,000 Americans who have a stroke each year, high blood pressure was the culprit. "Uncontrolled blood pressure is the No. 1 reason people have strokes," said Jeffrey L. Saver, M.D., professor of Neurology and director of the Comprehensive Stroke Center at the University of California, Los Angeles. "It's im_portant to check your blood pressure regularly and talk to your doctor about your numbers." While up to 80 percent of strokes may be prevented, everyone needs to learn the stroke signs and what to do during a stroke emergency. Bystand_ers are often the ones who need to call for help. Through the Together to End Stroke initiative, sponsored by Covidien, the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association teaches the acronym F.A.S T. for stroke recognition: F-Face Drooping A-Arm Weakness S-Speech Difficulty T-Time to call 9-1-1 Additional stroke signs include: sudden severe headache with no known cause; sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss Learn to spot a s~oke EA.S.T. of balance or coordination; sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes; or sudden confusion or trouble understanding. If someone experiences any of these symptoms, 9-1-1 should be called immediately.. "Prevention is the best cure, but in the event of a stroke, quick recognition and treatment may have a dramatic impact on the outcome," said Mark A. Turco, M.D., chief medical officer, Covidien Vascular Therapies. For Baker, treatment combined with therapy and hard work paid off. He's made a joyous return to a fulfilling life.

The kind of humor I like is the thing that makes me laugh for five seconds and think for 10 minutes. -- William Davis Michele in the Kitchen by Michele Harvey Recently wrote a column about using foods I get from Feeding America. 150 to 250 Julian families benefit from getting Feeding America food items on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month. We gather at the Julian County Library parking lot at 9:45. Distribution begins at 10:00 a.m. Look for my new column, Michele in the Kitchen for recipes and other ways to utilize food from Feeding America, or other sources of food that I may even have found on my front porch. 'Writing about food give aways brings me to one of my favorite stories from my brother Clyde Harvey. Clyde is a minister. One day he interviewed for a job in North Dakota. After the interview Clyde and his wife Jane were eating lunch in the local caf& They found out that they were sitting next to a table occupied by the town mayor. Clyde turned to the mayor and asked if that town, Ellendale North Dakota was a safe place to live with their 4 children. The mayor told Clyde and Jane that no one in town locked the doors to their homes. However, most of the year everyone locked their car doors. Naturally my brother was concerned and immediately asked why. The mayor leaned real close to Clyde and Jane and in a soft voice, told them that if you don't lock your car doors, your car may get filled with tomatoes and zucchinis. If you've ever grown tomatoes or zucchini, you know how this happens. Maybe you have filled someone's car or porch with tomatoes or zucchini. I know I've been sometimes the giver and sometimes the receiver of these tasty foods in different years. The last time we received Feeding America food, I got a half dozen bananas and a lot of oranges. Here are recipes for using bananas. In a future column I'll print my recipe for orange marmalade. In 1970 going to the gas station was one of those experiences when we really did feel like we "got more for ,our money". Each time I bought a tank full of gas, I got a cookbook chapter for just a few cents more. Maybe I paid an entire dollar for each chapter. I still use that cookbook, The Complete Family Cookbook. A person can buy it in better condition than my much used copy for under $10.00 on Amazon.corn Here is one of the recipes I use Banana Bread Loaf Preheat the oven to 325 cups sugar cup oil 2 eggs, beaten 1 cup mashed bananas 1 cups sifted flour 2 teaspoons baking powder the most. teaspoon baking soda te',]lspoon salt In a )wl, combine flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. cup chillped nuts can be added to dry ingredients. In another bowl, combint ugar, oil and eggs. Beat vigorously until frothy. Add bananas to wet ingredients and blend thoroughly. Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients until blended. Pour into a greased bread pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour until crust is golden brown. Use a toothpick to test for doneness. If toothpick comes out clean, bread is done .Move pan to a cooling rack. (I place an extra cool oven rack on my washing machine or on any clean surface.) Let bread stand for 10 minutes, then invert pan tp remove bread. Cut into 1 inch slices. Yields one loaf. My personal notes: I have successfully multiplied this recipe by as many as 8 times. My most perishable ingredient isc the bananas, so I mash them to see What my'fh asurement is. Usually 2 whole bananas per cup of mashed. You can use any size loaf pan or muffin pan. Fill each full and adjust baking time accordingly. Here is one of my favorite recipes. It also comes from The Complete Family Cookbook. I don't make this often enough, though it uses 5 ingredients that I've received from Feeding America. Manhattan Clam Chowder 2 cans drained minced clams (keep the liquid) 1 cup clam liquid cup chopped bacon cup chopped onion Cup chopped green bell pepper 1 cup chopped celery 1 cup boiling water 1 cup diced potatoes teaspoon thyme 1 teaspoon salt ( I use less) 1 dash of cayenne 2 cups tomato juice 1 dash of Tabasco sauce In a frying pan, cook bacon until brown. Add onion, green pepper and celery: cook until tender. Blend in water, clam liquid, potatoes, seasonings, Tabasco sauce and clams. Cook for 15 minutes until potatoes are tender. Add tomato juice and cook until heated. Serves 6. Michele in the Kitchen will be in The Julian News from time to time. Please look for new recipes as I try them and publish them.

Conversely, many common flowers and plants have healing properties that can help gardeners treat their injuries. Made from plants, as well as animals and minerals, homeopathic medicines offer some of the safest options for self-treatable conditions -- and can be great for ailments and injuries that befall home gardeners. Because the risk of interaction with other drugs, supplements and herbs is minimal, experts say these natural medicines are a good first choice for early symptoms. Easily found in health food stores and pharmacies, these non- prescription medicines work naturally with the body instead of masking a problem, which is important if a more serious condition should arise. With that in mind, here are some homeopathic treatments for common gardener ailments: Allergies: Relieving allergy symptoms provides a good example of the principle behind homeopathic medicines. Chopping a red onion has a "toxic" effect, causing eyes to water and burn until exposed to fresh air. When similar symptoms appear from allergies or a cold, a micro-dose of the red onion helps relieve those same symptoms. The red onion in this homeopathic form takes the Latin name of its source, Allium cepa. Try Ambrosia (Ragweed) for watery nasal discharge with eyes that tear and itch and Sabadilla (Cevadilla) for hypersensitivity to the smell of flowers or itching in the back of the mouth. A good general allergy medicine is Histaminum, which is derived from histamine. Sore, Stiff Muscles: For gardeners suffering back and knee injuries, Arnica montana can be an essential gardening tool. Commonly known as the Mountain daisy, Arnica's healing properties were first recognized in the 16th century. Legend has it mountain climbers chewed the plant to relieve sore, aching muscles and bruises from falls. Today, this homeopathic medicine is used by professional athletes and surgeons for muscle pain and stiffness, swelling from injuries and bruising. For more information visit www. Arnicare.com. Sunburn, Blisters and Other Skin Conditions: In its homeopathic form, Calendula (Garden marigold) is one of the most versatile aids for skin irritations. Try a Calendula cream or ointment for blisters and calluses, cuts and scrapes, rashes, and chapped skin caused by wind, dry or cold air, or sun. Used for centuries as a natural healing and soothing substance, Calendula's wound-healing properties are due to essential oils, saponins, flavonoids and alkaloids. These compounds have skin healing properties. Bug Bites: To help relieve bee and wasp stings, as well as gnat, black fly or mosquito bites, take five pellets of Apis mellifica (Honey bee) every 30 minutes for up to six doses. And apply Calendula topically. Take Breaks and Relax: While many plants help us nurture our health, remember to practice common sense. Prepare properly by stretching and wearing sun block. Don't overdo it. Take breaks. End your day with a soaking bath. Relieve conditions at the first sign of symptoms before they grow out of control, so you can continue your gardening activities.
