This  morning , I received this very informative and interesting article from a

classmate of mine regarding a Mayo Clinic Study on the effects of “drinking water”.

Because this article contains so much valuable information  and as a member of the

health profession, I felt compelled to  share it with the readers and followers of my

Dental Blog website, ” mydentalhealthtips .com”

A cardiologist at the Mayo Clinic has determined that heart attacks can be triggered

by dehydration. If you are an individual who is currently  having health issues with

your blood pressure, and at risk of having a stroke and/or heart attack, the following

information could save you life.

How many people do you know who say they don’t like to drink anything

before going to bed because they’ll have to get up during the night ?

Did you know that drinking one glass of water before going to bed avoids a

stroke or heart attack ?     I did not know this ! Did you?

Other than having a prostate problem which can cause  men to get up many times

in the night to urinate, cardiologists at the Mayo clinic tell us that gravity holds water

in the lower part of your body when you  are upright in a standing position. This causes

the legs to swell . When you lie down  and the lower part of your body seeks a level

with the kideys which in turn can then  remove the water more easily.  Water is necessary to

flush the toxins from your body.

According to Mayo Clinic Cardiologists, 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 talking a bath -helps lower blood pressure

1 glass of water before going to bed – avoids stroke or heart attack

It is also know that drinking water at bedtime will  help prevent night time

leg cramps. Your leg muscles are seeking hydration when they cramp and

wake you up. They call these “Charlie Horse Cramps ” . Please don’t ask me why

they are called that, because I don’t know . What I do know is that these so called

“Charlie Horse Cramps ” are extremely painful. I know because I get them quite

frequently !

Dr Virend Somers is a Mayo Clinic Cardiologist who is the lead author of a report in July

29th 2008 issue of the Journal of American College of Cardiology. He states that ” most

heart attacks happen during the day, generally between 6: AM and noon.”

Having an  Heart attack  during the night , when the heart should be most relaxed,

indicates that something unusual has happened. Somers and his colleagues  have

been working for a decade to show that sleep Apnea is to blame.

If you take one aspirin or one baby aspirin ( 81 mg) once a day, take it at night !

The reason : Aspirin has a 24 – hour ” half-life”; therefore, if most heart attacks happen

in the early hours of the morning, the Aspirin would be at its strongest level in your system.

Aspirin lasts a long time in your medicine cabinet. Apparently ,if kept for years, it

smells like vinegar.

Bayer Pharmaceutical Company is now making a crystal aspirin that will dissolve

instantly on or under the tongue. This way , they work much faster and are more effective

than the regular aspirin tablets.

Always keep Aspirins by your bedside. Its about the possibility of having a heart attack .

You should realize that there are many other symptoms or warning signs of having

a heart attack besides the usual pain in the chest and or in your left arm. For example,

one might also experience intense pain on the chin area, as well as nausea, profuse

sweating , light- headedness and difficulty in breathing. These symptoms however seem to

occur less frequently.

It is interesting to note that often there may be no chest pain during a heart attack.

I  was told by my cardiologist that I had what is called a “Silent Heart Attack ” No pain

whatsoever. But I did experience the dizziness, sweating and nausea for only a few seconds.

It has been suggested that the majority of people (about 60% ) who had a heart attack

during their sleep don’t wake up. However , if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up

from your sleep. If that happens, immediately dissolve  two aspirins  in your mouth and

swallow them with a little water. Then call 911- phone a neighbor , friend

or family member who lives close by and say “Heart Attack ! ”

Tell them that you have taken two aspirins ,sit down and wait at the front door.

……………………………DO NOT LIE DOWN !

The  Cardilologist has stated that if each person who reads this blog , sends it to 10

other people, more than likely, one or more lives will be saved !

Please consider sending this message to your friends and relatives. You may save

someone’s life by doing so!
