Heart Attack & Water

Received in an e-mail and thought it was worth adding to this site....





HEART ATTACK AND WATER




!Interesting......







Heart Attack & Water

I asked my Doctor why do I and other people

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






Please pass this to the people you care about......

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.



This is a lot of good advice for the minor inconvenience of getting up in the middle of the
Night!

From an e-mail.......


Quote:

CHEST PAINS?

DONT LIE DOWN!

VERY SERIOUS INFO THAT MAY KEEP YOU ALIVE! YOU SHOULD HAVE
EVERY MEMBER OF YOUR FAMILY READ THIS AND KNOW WHAT TO DO AS
UNFORTUNATELY IT WILL HAPPEN TO SOMEONE CLOSE TO YOU SOONER
OR LATER--BE PREPARED!




ASPIRIN

We did not know that you should not lie down while waiting for the EMT to arrive.

Heart attack info NEW ASPIRIN Serious stuff !

Just a reminder to all: purchase a box, keep one in your car, pocketbook, wallet, bedside, etc.

IMPORTANT READ......

Something that we can do to help ourselves - Nice to know.

Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve under the tongue.
They work much faster than the tablets.

Why keep aspirin by your bedside?

About Heart Attacks

There are other symptoms of an 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 2 aspirins in your mouth

- and swallow them with a bit of water

Afterwards :

CALL 911

- say "heart attack!"
- say that you have taken 2 aspirins.. </span>
- phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by
- 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 e-mail,
sends it to 10 people, probably one life can be saved!

I have already shared the information- - What about you?

Do forward this message; it may save a life.
