Worried About Your Heart?

Ever since I became a parent, I'm sleeping later and later. Of course I was never the "early to bed, early to rise" type of person since my uni days, but since my first child was born, it's getting worse.

His first few months were practically a nightmare. He was a VERY light sleeper and was very difficult to take care of as he pretty much woke up and started crying almost every half an hour. So me and my wife had to take turns looking after him and basically didn't get much sleep. As he grew older, he went to bed about 12am. Now he is sleeps earlier, but I pretty much only get to do my own stuff (work, leisure, etc) after the kids are asleep. Obviously sleeping late will take a toll on your health. Which was why this forwarded mail caught my attention, and I'm going to share it with you.

The email consist of 2 sections:-

Section 1: Natural Therapy For Heart Vein Opening

The 1st part is a natural therapy for heart vein opening. Not sure if it works, but since it's ingredients are all natural and are not life threatening, I decided to share it with you without doing any research. Feel free to try it and tell me if it works :) And also tell me about the taste too LOL! Well, here it is:

"Dear All,

Natural therapy for heart vein opening


Please pass it to your colleagues or friends.


For Heart Vein opening

2) Ginger juice 01 cup

and keep it in bottle.

(No need any Angiography or By pass)"


Section 2: Sharing Of Experience

This is an email about a person who had a severe heart attack symptom and was rushed to the hospital. He was sharing about his experience but more importantly, his lifestyle, which is quite similar to mine, except the smoking part. He also shared the doctor's recommended lifestyle. So take a read and see if it's applicable to you.

This is e-mail received from a person working in a Software Company

Dear colleagues, I am working in Blore Software City ....... I wanted to share an incident of my life with you, hoping that it may be an eye opener to you so that you can live more years.


On 27th October afternoon, I had severe heart attack symptom and I was rushed to the hospital.


After reaching to the hospital, the doctors prescribed a test called angiogram.. This test is basically to identify blood flow of heart arteries. When they finished the test they found a 94% block in the main artery, please see the image below with red circle.

At this point, I wanted to share my living style, which has caused this block in my heart arteries. Please see the below points of my life style, if any of these points are part of your life style then you are at risk, please change yourselves.


1. I was not doing any physical exercise for more than 10 years
, not even walking 30 minutes a day for years.

2.
My food timings are 11:00 AM Breakfast or no Breakfast, 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM Lunch and dinner at 11:00 PM to 12:00 AM.

3.
Sleeping in very odd timings, going to bed between 12:00 AM and 3:00 AM. Waking up at between 9:00 AM and 10:30AM ........ Some times spending sleepless nights.

4.
I used to eat heavily because of long gaps between lunch and dinner and I used to make sure that Non-Veg is available most of the time, there were times when I did survey on city hotels to find delicious Non-Veg dishes. I was never interested in vegetable and healthier food.

5.
Above all I was chain smoker from years.

6.
My father passed away due to heart problems, and the doctors say the heart problems are usually genetic.

Once they identified the major block they have done immediately a procedure called angioplasty along with 2 Stints, mean they will insert a foreign body into the heart arteries and open the blocked area of arteries. Please see the below image after the procedure.

I learnt from the doctors
that 60% people will die before reaching the hospital,20% people will die in the process of recovering from heart attack and only 20% will survive .. In my case, I was very lucky to be part of the last 20%.

Doctors instructions:


1.
Need to have physical exercise for minimum of 45 minutes daily.
2.
Eat your food at perfect timings, like how you eat during your school days. Eat in small quantities more times and have lot of vegetables and boiled food, try to avoid fry items and oily food. Fish is good than other non-vegetarian food.
3.
Sleep for 8 hours a day, this count should complete before sun rising.
4.
Stop smoking.
5.
Genetic problems, we cannot avoid but we can get away from it by having regular checkups.
6.
Find a way to get relived from the stress.

So I urge you all to please avoid getting into this situation, it is in your hands to turn the situation up side down, by just planning / changing your life style, by following simple points above.

If you find it's useful you can forward this mail to your friends and loved ones.....


Like for all the things I received in the email, do take it with a pinch of salt, but in this case I really don't think there's any harm in knowing these information,whether you follow them or not LOL!

I'm working on changing my lifestyle, but with my 3rd child arriving.... Well, let's hope I'll be successful before it's too late :P

Wow nice blog,
The stem cells which are retrieved from isolated menstrual blood may possibly be utilized in the future potential treatment of debilitating diseases such as breast cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stroke and others.

There's no harm following these tips, actually. They're there to remind us that nobody is safe from heart attacks, and that if we commit ourselves to a healthy lifestyle and balanced diet, we lower the risks. Of course, pieces of advice from the family doctor should be followed the most.

THis blog's not been active for a while..but I thought i should just put it out there: no one's safe from heart disease but we can always do our best to take preventive measures. One of which is to increase our intake of magnesium since most people are magnesium deficient. Seems like loads of heart related problems can be evaded through magnesium supplementation. Anyhow, to read more: http://www.elementz.com.my/wordpress/?page_id=277 Loads of articles online too besides what I've linked to..
