Keep a syringe or needle at your home to do this. It’s amazing and an unconventional way of recovering from stroke. It can help somebody one day. My father was paralysed and later died from the result of a stroke. I wish I knew about this first aid before. The capillaries in the brain gradually burst when stroke strikes. So, when it occurs, stay calm. No matter where the victim is, do not move him/her because, if moved, his/her brain 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. Remember, blood letting is the key. If you have in your home an injection syringe, it would be the best. Otherwise, a sewing needle or a straight pin will do.
1. Place the needle/pin over fire to sterilise it and then use it to prick the tip of all10 fingers. If you have a sterilised syringe not used before, it is not necessary to put that on fire.
2. There are no specific acupuncture points, just prick about an 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 points are bleeding, wait a few minutes then the victim will regain consciousness.
6. If the victim’s mouth is crooked, then pull on his/her ears until they are red.
7. Then prick each earlobe twice until two drops of blood comes from each earlobe. After a few minutes the victim should regain consciousness.
Wait till the victim regains his/her normal state without any abnormal symptoms then take him/her to the hospital. Otherwise, if he/she was taken in the ambulance in a hurry to the hospital, the bumpy trip will cause all 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 said in panting, ‘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 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 finger tips. 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, too. 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 have a cup of hot tea, then we helped him go down the stairs, 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. On the other hand, the usual stroke victim usually suffers bursting of the brain capillaries on the way to the hospital. As a result, these victims never recover. Therefore, stroke is the second cause of death. The lucky ones will stay alive but can remain paralysed for life. It is such a horrible thing to happen in one’s life. 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% normality.
