Mayo Clinic – Drinking Water & Aspirin (Very Interesting)
A cardiologist determined that heart attacks can be triggered by dehydration. 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 – drinking one glass of water before going to bed avoids stroke or heart attack.
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, etc.) are level with the kidney, it is then that the kidneys remove the water because it is easier.
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 avoid stroke or heart attack.
Physicians say that water at bedtime 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 on aspirin.
Dr. Virend Somers is a cardiologist from the Mayo Clinic who is the 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 AM and noon. Having one during the night, when the heart should be at most rest, means that something unusual happened. Summers and his colleagues have been working for a decade to show that sleep apnea is to blame.
If you take aspirin or 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 the strongest in your system.
Aspirin last a really long time in your medicine chest; for years. (When I gets old it smells like vinegar.)
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, the symptoms may also occur less frequently.
Note: there may be no pain in the chest during 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 two aspirin. 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 reading this forwards it to 10 people, probably one life could be saved.
