When you meet someone like this, you'd immediately think that he's healthy AF...but even a perfect specimen like JZ Woo can't escape "the stroke".
At 37, Taiwan's Jz Woo aka "Muscle Daddy" (I swear I didn't make this up) was found in the bedroom, collapsed on the ground suffering from a stroke by his wife, as he was heading for a nap.
“Luckily, I haven’t gone out yet and went inside the room. I found him there and managed to send him to the hospital in time," says his wife, Melody Wan aka "Muscle Mum" (I swear I'm not making this up either.)
"The details of that day are a blur as I was rushing around trying to handle many things in the hospital as I accompanied my husband."
"The doctor said there was a brain embolism but because he was sent to the hospital within three hours he had more treatment choices.”
According to the doctor's report, it was revealed that on JZ's mother’s side of the family genes has a hypercoagulation problem, which means that blood clots easily for them.
His mum would need to take medicine to control this. Two of their relatives had already suffered from a stroke before and one of them was only in his twenties.
Melody had also explained that her husband's lack of sleep, being overworked, and his family’s medical history in his genes, it was likely to be what may have caused his untimely stroke.
“We thought that we were very healthy as we regularly worked out, were still young and went for yearly checkups. However, he would often sleep late around 3.00AM while he was rushing his work and then wake up at 6.00AM. During the day, he would take naps but he usually had less than six hours of sleep a day,” Melody says.
JZ is getting better, slowly but surely, as he is undergoing treatment and rehab.
Since the incident, Melody had insisted that the whole family is to sleep at 10.00PM and wake up early in the morning.
Living a healthy lifestyle means getting that much-required 6-8 hours of good sleep a day.
Moral of the story is that you can go to the gym for hours to get ripped, but it doesn't mean you're healthy.
Living healthy means doing everything in moderation -- including eating right and sleeping on time.
