How can you survive a heart attack when you are alone?
Without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint,Has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness. However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously.A deep breath should be taken before eachCough, and the cough must be deep And prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest. A breath and a cough must be repeated About every two seconds without let up Until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again. Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart andKeep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital. Reducing or stopping soft drinks including diet sodas; Sugar, caffeine, aspartame and phoshates can reduce your risk of heart attacks and stroke. Mantaining alkaline pH as well as hydration can help you preventing heart attacks and stroke. Reducing homocystein by supplementing with B12, B6 and Folic Axid has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. Dr. George Grant, Ph.D., I.M.D.
