What is a Heart Attack?

In an emergency: 1 teaspoon cayenne powder in water or juice, or cayenne tincture, (20 drops in water) may help bring a person out of a heart attack.

The healthy heart is a model of efficiency and perfection. When people don’t watch their diet and don’t exercise regularly, the walls of their arteries become cluttered with deposits of a wax-like fatty substance called cholesterol.

 This damages the arteries, forms scar tissue, and traps more cholesterol and also mineral deposits. This condition is known as atherosclerosis. Instead of being as healthy and flexible as they need to be for the pulsing blood flow, the arterial walls become hard and brittle, since the accumulating deposits narrow the channel through which the blood must pass.

All of this slows down the circulation of the blood and may even cause the formation of a clot, which blocks the blood’s flow. When a clot forms in one of the arteries of the heart it creates a serious condition called coronary thrombosis, or coronary occlusion.

The affected part of the heart is deprived of blood circulation. Failing to get nourishment and oxygen, it then ceases to function. This is when a heart attack occurs, and maybe even death.

Thousands of people every year pay thousands of dollars for state-of-the-art testing to learn their risk for heart disease. However, experts say that fresh vegetables and fruits and a health club membership may be better buys than any lab test.

People who eat a diet low in fat and cholesterol and rich in healthy plant foods, who don’t smoke, who exercise regularly, and keep their weight and blood pressure in the normal range are less likely to have a heart attack than those who don’t, despite any predisposition or genetic tendency toward heart disease. – Harvard Health

Letter Be Prepared for Emergencies

Because heart attacks come suddenly, you should always be prepared for such an emergency . . . whether it happens to you or someone near you. If you have been warned that you are a potential heart attack victim – by your physician or by such symptoms as shortness of breath, angina chest pains, etc., it’s wise for emergencies to have a portable oxygen supply, such as Lifogen with you. It’s not heavy (3 pounds), contains15-minute of oxygen – which is easily administered – and costs around $30, an investment that may save your life or the life of a loved one!

Everyone should be prepared to aid a heart attack victim in an emergency; to summon the paramedics, fire department, or life-guard, and to give immediate emergency treatment until professional aid arrives. The Red Cross, fire departments, and schools offer courses in CPR (mouth-to-mouth resuscitation), the Heimlich Maneuver (for choking, drowning & asthma attacks) and other life saving skills. Such knowledge may help you save lives!
