This is what most folks think happens when someone’s having a heart attack:
The person can’t feel their left arm…
He acts like he’s trying to claw his heart out of his chest…
And he slowly collapses to the floor while softly urging someone to call 9-1-1.
It’s dramatic. It’s perfect for TV and sure, it can go down this way.
But there’s a heart attack that can creep up on you, too.
In fact, you might continue on WITHOUT EVEN KNOWING anything has happened!
These “silent” heart attacks are just as life-threatening—and far more common than you think.
Today, I’ll reveal the HIDDEN signs of a silent heart attack. Then, I’ll show you strategies that’ll both PREVENT one from ever happening, and help you heal if it has!
Have you had a silent heart attack without knowing it?
According to research gathered from nearly 10,000 patients involved in a heart study, a shocking 45 percentof Americans have had a silent heart attack – AND DON’T KNOW IT.
The traditional hallmarks aren’t there. There’s no pain in the chest… no shortness of breath… no cold sweats… But the blood flow to your heart is cut off just the same.
So chances are pretty good you’re not going to catch it when it’s happening…
However, there are telltale signs AFTER you’ve had a silent heart attack.
You may feel:
- Extreme fatigue
- And/or sweat excessively
Of course, these symptoms are common to many diseases.
If you’ve been having them for a while or there’s no apparent reason why it’s happening, it’s time to see a doctor.
The only way to be certain you’ve had a heart attack is with an electrocardiogram.
What to do before and after you’ve had a heart attack
Since hypertension is the biggest indicator you’re at risk of having a heart attack, you want to do all you can to keep your blood pressure in check.
So to start, your diet can help stave off hypertension. Being mindful of what you’re eating every day is the BEST way to prevent a heart attack from happening again – or at all.
Get dietary nitrates from arugula and spinach. Nitrates convert to nitric oxide in the body. It’s one of the BEST ways to instantly drop your blood pressure.
Beets also contain high amounts of dietary nitrates, but limit yourself to no more than one medium-sized beet a day. That’ll give you the amounts you need without loading you up on sugar.
Additionally, you can look to supplements to keep your hypertension in check…
By far, the best ways to do this are with B-vitamins and L-arginine.
Now, those are two supplements you can find pretty much anywhere you look. A vitamin B complex will get you the whole complement of B vitamins, but be careful of what you choose. Avoid supplements with “folic acid”; folate is the natural form of B-6 you need.
