Free udemy coupon code - Strokes disable. Strokes kill. Minimise your risk

What you'll learn

  • Identify risk factors for a stroke
  • Take action to reduce their chances of getting a stroke
  • Live life more safely!


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.
