Is drinking water helping to reduce heart attacks??

HEART ATTACKS AND WATER ! 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 - I never knew all of this ! Interesting....... Something else I didn't know ... 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 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 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. Mayo Clinic Aspirin Dr. Virend Somers, is a Cardiologist from the Mayo Clinic, who is 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 A.M. and noon. Having one during the night, when the heart should be most at rest, means that something unusual happened. Somers and his colleagues have been working for a decade to show that sleep apnea is to blame. 1. If you take an aspirin or a 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 strongest in your system. 2. FYI, Aspirin lasts a really long time in your medicine chest, for years, (when it gets old, it smells like vinegar). Please read on... Something that we can do to help ourselves - nice to know. 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, 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 two aspirins in your mouth and swallow them with a bit of water. Afterwards: - Call 999. - Phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by.- Say "heart attack!" - Say that you have taken 2 Aspirins. 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 could be saved! I have already shared this information. What about you? Do forward this message. It may save lives! "Life is a one time gift"

  • Really interesting and useful information. Thanks. I will pass it on.

  • Fascinating! Just goes to show not everything you need to do is to dash to your Dr to keep you well. Buy your aspirin and take a glass of water to bed! So simple! Thank you for this.

  • Thank you Wyvon,A lot of good advice there.

  • Whenever I read something that sounds too good to be true I check it out, as best as I can. There are several articles on the net suggesting that this article on "water and heart attacks" is a scam. This is one of the articles debunking it.

    It might be a good idea to ask your own doctor if this "water treatment" is correct.

  • Oooops. I usually check out before forwarding anything but this seemed so plausible. Guess folks will just have to make up their own minds. Thanks Penel, I will read your link.

  • If you search the Mayo Clinic you will find that they had nothing to do with this, they put out a disclaimer in 2010, but the e-Mail is still doing the rounds.

  • Thanks for that info wyfon I always drink water during the night if I wake up and also before bedtime but not from the tap have heard it is contaminated so drink mineral water bottled have done for years only live 4 miles from you apparently in Anlaby have what is called stable angina but I can do what I need to without having a triple heart pass which I was advised to have 4 years ago but still going okay with a bit of help from an herbal medication but that is another story hope you are okay

  • I'm up in Swanland and, usually once per year, I organise a fund-raising event for HEART UK. I must remember to put the next one on this forum. I am fine thanks - as long as I keep taking my Kyolic and my statins. (… and the odd glass of red wine too)
