Are You Having A HEART ATTACK?
There are the classic heart attack signs everyone knows.
Things like chest pain and pressure… weakness… and right arm pain.
But here is what no one tells you — not all heart attacks go like that.
In fact, at least 25 percent of heart attacks are ‘silent’– people have a heart attack and don’t notice.
While that seems almost impossible, it happens every day.
Even though I said ‘silent’ these heart attacks are not really silent – there are clues.
Let me give you the FIVE warning signs that mean you should probably head to the hospital.
Here is a shocking statistic: if you have a full-blown heart attack outside of a hospital, your chances of surviving it are a measly 7%.
Those are not good odds.
Most of the people who survive a heart attack say they didn’t “feel right” in the few days before the attack.
That means (almost) everyone gets advanced warning.
Here are the five signs that a heart attack might be coming your way:
#1 Feeling tired: A fatigue that comes out of nowhere and is overwhelming can be a sign of an impending heart attack.
#2 Indigestion or heartburn: The reason for this has to do with our wiring – the nerves that go from the brain to the heart also go to our digestion. Sometimes the pain in the heart is felt like pain in the stomach.
#3 Nausea: If you have a sudden bout of nausea that is severe, it might be your heart.
#4 Shortness of Breath: If you find it hard to walk up the stairs our out to the mail box and this is a new symptom, this might be a sign of a coming heart attack.
#5 Sweating: Heavy sweating that’s not cause by heat can be a sign of a heart attack.
If you or someone you love experiences one or more of these symptoms suddenly, get to the hospital.
But let’s stop you from ever having to make that emergency trip in the first place.
Dr. Scott’s Plan for STOPPING Heart Disease:
- Exercise: Exercise not only reduces inflammation but is great for the heart (and the brain). You don’t have to be too crazy, just get out and move your body around some every day.
- Eat Colorful Foods: This means getting enough vegetables in your diet. If you can’t stand veggies, you can “cheat” by getting your veggies and other superfoods in a powered form. I take one every day by mixing it into yogurt and some berries.
- Avoid Vegetable Oils: Vegetable oils, especially trans fatty acids, are like setting off tiny bombs in your blood stream which increase inflammation.
- Fish oil: One of the most powerful anti-inflammatories is fish oil. It works inside your body to keep inflammatory proteins low.
- Curcumin: This extract from turmeric is great at helping the body modulate inflammation. Unless you get a ton of this in your food, you should think about supplementing.
Hopefully you’ll never have to rush to the hospital in a cold sweat. If you follow these steps and take care of your self today, the better chance you have of avoiding it.
