Needle that stroke!

Or should we call it – give the stroke a poke!!

The following suggestion came in an email. Now I don’t know the effectiveness of this procedure and please note this is NOT meant to be medical advice in any way, shape or form. But on reading it several times I’ve come to the conclusion that there can’t be any harm. If some of our wiser readers can shed light on possible negative results from following this procedure, please do let us know here.

With some minor editing this is the email that’s doing the rounds:

From a Chinese Professor

Keep a syringe or needle in your home to do this… It’s amazing and an unconventional way of recovering from stroke, read it through it can help somebody one day.

This is amazing. Please keep this handy and do take a couple of minutes to read this. You never know,  some day someone’s life may depend on you. My father was paralysed and later died from the result of a stroke.  I wish I knew about this first aid before.

When a stroke strikes, the capillaries in the brain will gradually burst. (Irene Liu)

When a stroke occurs, stay calm.

No matter where the victim is, do not move him/her. Because, if  the person is moved, the capillaries will burst.

Help the victim to sit up where he/she is to prevent him/her from falling over again and then the blood letting can begin.

If you have an injection syringe in your home that would be the best, otherwise, a sewing needle or a straight pin will do.

1.     Place the needle/pin over a flame to sterilize it and then use it to prick the tip of all 10 fingers.

2.     There are no specific acupuncture points; just prick about one mm from the fingernail.

3.     Prick till blood comes out.

4.     If blood does not start to drip, then squeeze with your fingers.

5.     When all 10 digits are bleeding, wait a few minutes then the victim will regain consciousness.

6.     If the victim’s mouth is crooked, then pull on his ears until they are red.

7.     Then prick each earlobe twice until two drops of blood come from each earlobe.

8.     After a few minutes the victim should regain consciousness.

Wait till the victim regains his normal state without any abnormal symptoms then take him/her to the hospital. If the person is taken in an ambulance to the hospital to soon, the bumpy trip will cause the capillaries in his brain to burst.

‘I learned about letting blood to save life from Chinese traditional doctor, Ha Bu Ting, who lives in Sun Juke. Furthermore, I had practical experience with it. Therefore, I can say this method is 100% effective.

In 1979, I was teaching in Fung Gaap College in Tai Chung. One afternoon, I was teaching a class when another teacher came running to my classroom and panting, said, ‘Ms Liu, come quick, our supervisor has had a stroke !’

I immediately went to the 3rd floor. When I saw our supervisor, Mr. Chen Fu Tien, his colour was off, his speech was slurred, his mouth was crooked – all the classic symptoms of a stroke.

I immediately asked one of the practicum students to go to the pharmacy outside the school to buy a syringe, which I used to prick Mr. Chen’s 10 fingertips.

When all 10 fingers were bleeding (each with a pea-sized drop of blood), after a few minutes, Mr. Chen’s face regained its colour and his eyes’ spirit returned. But his mouth was still crooked. So I pulled on his ears to fill them with blood. When his ears became red, I pricked his right earlobe twice to let out two drops of blood. When both earlobes had two drops of blood each, a miracle happened. Within 3-5 minutes the shape of his mouth returned to normal and his speech became clear.

We let him rest for a while and drink a cup of hot tea, then we helped him go down the stairs and drove him to Wei Wah Hospital. He rested one night and was released the next day to return to school to teach. Everything worked normally.

There were no ill after effects.

If we can all remember this blood letting method and start the life saving process immediately, in a short time, the victim will be revived and regain 100% normalcy.


Instead of forwarding it as an email I’m placing this on my blog.
