Hello Everyone,

Did you know our hearts beats (expands and contracts) 100,000 times and pumps about 2,000 gallons of blood on an average. Amazing! Right?

Quite a dare! This daunting task is performed by your little organ (heart) on daily basis. Over 70 years, an average human heart beats more than 2.5 billion times!

In this post, we shall guide you on — How to deal with sudden onset of heart attack. Do follow these easy home remedies. We are positive if you follow these remedies, you can manage your heart health well.

What is heart attack?

In layman language, a heart attack usually occurs when blood clot or clots blocks blood flow to the heart. Without sufficient blood, the tissues lose oxygen and hence dies.

Why is heart important?

Heart is the center of our cardiovascular system. It is similar to a generator that pumps electricity. With every movement of the heart called heart beat, we feel alive. The heart pumps blood through the blood vessels. Blood supplies the body with oxygen and necessary nutrients. It is therefore imperative to keep your heart in best of its health.

Atherosclerosis

Atherosclerosis starts with damage to the Endothelium.

This happens due to high blood pressure, smoking, too much intake of alcohol, rise in cholesterol. This damage damage leads to the formation of plaque. Plaque is made up of fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances found in the blood. When bad cholesterol crosses over the damaged endothelium, the cholesterol enters the wall of the artery creating further nuisance.

Your arteries are the lanes to your blood. When it gets hardened and narrowed, that is when heart attack or stroke occurs!

Protect your heart Health!

High blood pressure, smoking and too much cholesterol and triglycerides cause the damage to your arteries. Other factors that contribute to this condition are junk eating habits, lack of exercise, diabetes, stress, obesity. Did you know that Men are at greater risk especially those with big bellies. 

A heart attack hits a person about every 43 seconds.  Many people believe that the symptoms of a heart attack are inevitable, clear but in fact they can be subtle and occasionally confusing with other conditions.

If blood flow to the heart muscle is blocked due to the plaque build up as discussed above, you may have Angina (Chest pain or discomfort) or a heart attack.

However, before an attack our  body always gives us early warnings where we can save ourselves quickly from heart blockage:

Shortness of breath 

Shortness of breath is another signal your body can send before a heart attack due to the reduce blood flow and the narrowed arteries mainly the lungs did not receive the needed blood in order to work properly. Since the lungs and the heart function together if a function of one of them is impeded it will affect the other body.

Chest discomfort or pressure 

Please pay attention to any chest discomfort you come across on daily basis. If the discomfort is recurring or originates in the Center of the chest, seek medical attention. Also, note does it subside while resting and reoccur when you are active? Such symptoms should be carefully monitored. These signs of blockage may occur hours even weeks before an acute heart attack.

Pain in arms,Back, Neck or Jaw

Now, this type of pain is far more common in women than in men.

It may confuse women who expect their pain to be focused on their chest and left arms. Any pain in the back or jaw that is gradual or sudden, should be monitored. Do not let it grow intensely unbearable. If you are asleep, the sudden pain may wake you up. You should note and report any “not so common or unexplained” symptoms in any part of your body above your waist to your healthcare provider.

Stomach pain

Wondering how can stomach pain be related to heart attack? It is quite often that people mistake stomach pain that signals a heart attack with heart burn, indigestion, flu of the stomach or an ulcer.

At times, women experience severe abdominal pressure that feels like someone pinching and hitting your stomach hard. Do discuss any such symptoms with your doctor.

Cold and Flu

Do you rest enough and still feel drained? Some people who have had heart attacks in the past reported feeling extremely tired, even when they did not move much or had been sitting idle.

Sweating profusely
