    Lightbulb Heart Attacks & Water?

    I know most of you have probably have seen this before but its just a reminder, i know i didn't remember everything,,,,,,,,but that's nothing new.


    How many folks do you know who say they don't want to drink anything before going to bed because they'll have to get up during the night.
    Heart Attack and Water - I never knew all of this ! Interesting.......
    Something else I didn't know ... I asked my Doctor why people need to urinate so much at night time. Answer from my Cardiac Doctor - Gravity holds water in the lower part of your body when you are upright (legs swell). When you lie down and the lower body (legs and etc) seeks level with the kidneys, it is then that the kidneys remove the water because it is easier. This then ties in with the last statement!
    I knew you need your minimum water to help flush the toxins out of your body, but this was news to me.

    Correct time to drink water...
    Very Important. From A Cardiac Specialist!
    Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body
    2 glasses of water after waking up - helps activate internal organs
    1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal - helps digestion
    1 glass of water before taking a bath - helps lower blood pressure
    1 glass of water before going to bed - avoids stroke or heart attack

    I can also add to this... My Physician told me that water at bed time will also help prevent night time leg cramps. Your leg muscles are seeking hydration when they cramp and wake you up with a Charlie Horse.
    Mayo Clinic Aspirin Dr. Virend Somers, is a Cardiologist from the Mayo Clinic, who is lead author of the report in the July 29, 2008 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

    Most heart attacks occur in the day, generally between 6 A.M. and noon. Having one during the night, when the heart should be most at rest, means that something unusual happened. Somers and his colleagues have been working for a decade to show that sleep apnea is to blame.

    1. If you take an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a day, take it at night.
    The reason: Aspirin has a 24-hour "half-life"; therefore, if most heart attacks happen in the wee hours of the morning, the Aspirin would be strongest in your system.
    2. FYI, Aspirin lasts a really long time in your medicine chest, for years, (when it gets old, it smells like vinegar).
    Please read on...

    Something that we can do to help ourselves - nice to know. Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve instantly on the tongue.
    They work much faster than the tablets.
    Why keep Aspirin by your bedside? It's about Heart Attacks.
    There are other symptoms of a heart attack, besides the pain on the left arm. One must also be aware of an intense pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating; however, these symptoms may also occur less frequently.

    Note: There may be NO pain in the chest during a heart attack.
    The majority of people (about 60%) who had a heart attack during their sleep did not wake up. However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from your deep sleep.
    If that happens, immediately dissolve two aspirins in your mouth and swallow them with a bit of water.
    Afterwards: - Call 911. - Phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by.- Say "heart attack!" - Say that you have taken 2 Aspirins.
    Take a seat on a chair or sofa near the front door, and wait for their arrival and ...DO NOT LIE DOWN!
    A Cardiologist has stated that if each person after receiving this information, sends it to 10 people, probably one life could be saved!
    I have already shared this information. What about you?
    Do forward this message. It may save lives!

    I read that with much interest. Thanks.


    I took some Vernors ginger ale to my step dad back in 1993. He loved the stuff and could not find it where they lived in the Poconos.

    I took him 2 cases of the stuff. He loved it!

    Very soon after I left to go back home he decided to get up in the middle of the night and drink 7 cans of Vernors. He never woke up. Too much fluid around his heart.

    The 7 cans were stacked up on the nightstand in a nice row.

    Does anyone need 7 cans of soda in the middle of the night?

    I know all about heart trauma...believe me.

    If you really want to be safe...beyond the 100mg of aspirin a day and the 300mg in case of strife...get your GP to prescribe a spray bottle of nitro-glycerin. Keep it nearby......

    The BIGGEST thing you can do for yourself...is a chest CT scan and an ultrasound treadmill stress test. However...the BEST thing if you are concerned...is an angiogram. There is nothing more definitive than that.

    Other than that...get a good BP machine and look at how you are doing throughout the day.
    If you don't practice...you'll sound like it. And, if you don't tune, your life will sound like it, too. Listen to the intervals. That's where it all hides from you.....

    Those of us who have had our hearts ripped from our bodies to be 'rebuilt' kind of know about this stuff.


    Amazing procedures they can do these days! Let's take better care of ourselves. It is too easy to become complacent.

    I wish I was more ahead of the game than I was.

    When I had those traumas...I did sort of assay what national health care vs private was all about.

    For serious stuff...you want private health care cover.
    If you don't practice...you'll sound like it. And, if you don't tune, your life will sound like it, too. Listen to the intervals. That's where it all hides from you.....

    Heart Attacks and Water?

    Sorry, but I wouldn't waste my time sharing the information about water and aspirin unless it's also accompanied by strong suggestions for a heart healthy diet. Ultimately, water and aspirin alone will be of little value to those who might be saved because the vast majority of them will go right back to eating the same unhealthy diet. So drinking water and taking aspirin will only provide a short reprieve from their desire to do themselves in. They might as well get it over with sooner rather than later if they have no intentions of changing their diet, which most of them won't. As Rush would say, "Don't doubt me!"

    Wading in ocean water and seeing the dorsal fin of a shark may lead to a heart attack.
