In brief: Strict veg diet

If a patient turns vegetarian avoiding foods from animal origen and avoid any oils and avoiding even fish the formation of plaques of cholesterol is less or reverse ( disappears) according to dr. Orlich.
Once stroke happens, a lot of physical therapy ( including speech and occupational therapy) is fundamental for recovery. Low sodium. Treatment of htn, Aspirin or anticoagulant ( if not contraind).

In brief: 2 different things

Prevention is better than reversal.
It is far easier to prevent a stroke than to reverse its effects. So lets talk prevention as it is more important: control you diet, fat intake, blood pressure, blood sugar, stress level. Exercise regularly. Learn to relax. Smile. Have a hobby. Help someone else. Stop smoking. Drink alcohol in moderation. Say nice things to people including yourself.
