Help: My Father had a stroke 1997-- walked and then stopped....
An_257522 posted:
He walked at my sister's wedding in 1998, but since then, he has needed help for the basics of life. His speech,use of limbs, and arms all have been stunted since. An aid pushing his wheel chair is the only means to get around. All in all, very saddening for my family. I was estranged from him prior to his stroke and only have been getting closer to him in the last 5 yrs. He lives in Africa. On my last visit 2 months ago, I noticed that he takes supplements.
They are--->1)Tianshi Coryceps Mycelium capsule, (2)Tianshi Vigor Rousing capsules (3)Tianshi Zinc Nutrient capsules, (4) Tianshi Lecitin calcium capsules, (5) Tianshi Beneficial capsules.

l don't know who prescribed them for him and he said he has been taking them for the last 10 yrs at least.

Are these of any use to his improvements or impediments? We need help with the direction that puts him back on the track for self reliance to walk, eat, and take control of his daily basics. Indeed it has been 16 yrs but we are not giving up hope...nor is he - he just feels helpless.
