Heart Problem Natural Remedies - Part One
by L. L. Smith
Most important, if you feel as if you are having a heart attack, call for professional medical help IMMEDIATELY! For those of you that have a history of heart problems, follow an eating plan that will promote a healthy heart.
To be a help to others, take a cardiac pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) course, found through the local chapter of the American heart Association or the Red Cross. Don't Smoke!!
If you are feeling as if you or someone you are with are having a heart attack, call 911 for professional medical help. Don't try to second guess your symptoms. While you are waiting for help to arrive, squeeze the end of the pinky finger on the left hand HARD. Keep squeezing, as this acupressure procedure has been said to save lives.
Give the person having the heart attack one full-strength (325 mg) aspirin, or four baby aspirin tablets. Make sure this person is not allergic to or taking blood thinners already. A cup of peppermint tea a day is said to help prevent a heart attack.
Even if you are healthy, you may experience heart palpitations (arrhythmia), feeling as though your heart has skipped a beat or is beating very fast. Your heart is powered by electrical pulses that are not always perfect. See your doctor for an evaluation.
After you have seen the doctor and gotten a clean bill of health, but still experience palpitations, take a holistic approach to find the cause. Too much caffeine, MSG in your Chinese lunch, cigarette smoke, pressure at work, sugar? Try to figure out the cause so you know what not to have the next time.
A natural sedative to subdue the thumping - steep 2 chamomile tea bags in 2 cups of boiling water. Stem a few leaves of cabbage. Combine the steamed leaves with the chamomile tea. This might not be the best tasting remedy, but it can help overcome those skipped heartbeats. Have a mug of peppermint tea each day. It has a calming effect and does not contain caffeine.
For general physical repair and for strengthening the heart, nutritionists agree on two teaspoons of raw honey a day. Have it in a cup of tea, water or straight off the spoon. Orchestra conductors live an average of seven and a half years longer than the average person! You can strengthen your heart, tone up your circulatory system and have some fun.
Go through the motions of conducting an orchestra, doing it for at least 10 minutes a day, or 20 minutes 3 times a week. You can conduct to whatever music inspires you. Don't have a baton? Just use a ruler or chopstick. Throw your whole self into it physically and emotionally.
You don't have to join a gym to get a great workout. The best exercise and perfect body stimulator is an old- fashioned walk. Make it daily and make it a brisk walk. A brisk walk is equal to walking a mile in 20 minutes, making it slower than running, but faster than a stroll.
