Identify a Heart Attack

Dr. PS Malik

     
   
     

A heart attack is never ‘All of a Sudden’. This is a whole process which finally culminates into an attack. Prior to this happening your heart sends you a number of signs which clearly show that an attack is now imminent. It is usually a omission on your part when you fail to pay proper attention to these signs and suffer something which a group of doctors call ‘Widow-maker’ attack.  We here, will discuss a few such signs which can help you avoid this happening of a heart attack.

Six Weeks to Better Sleep

It's 3:00 a.m., and your mind is bubbling over with thoughts: 

I need to get to sleep. Why can't I just fall asleep? I'll screw up that presentation at work if I'm too tired. What if I get sick from all of this lack of sleep?

We've probably all had that internal insomnia-induced dialogue at one time or another. But for people with chronic insomnia, it's commonplace -- and they often reach for a prescription sleep aid. Sleeping Pills now represent a $4.5 billion market, but despite what their expensive advertising campaigns promise, they're not long-term solutions, says Gregg Jacobs, Ph.D., an insomnia specialist at UMass Memorial Medical Center and author of "Say Good Night to Insomnia: The 6-Week Program." Jacobs's newly updated book promises to provide the most effective way to get a full night's sleep -- 

by getting people to change their thoughts about sleep and developing new sleep patterns through cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Learn more about the science behind this claim and what other sleep experts have to say below.

Fasting is a Torture


Religions have been telling people, “Fast and that will purify you.” If that is true, then the starving millions of the world will be the most pure people. Then don’t help them! Don’t make them impure! Let them starve and die; they are the most virtuous people in the world. But it has no relationship.

To destroy evil, all kinds of idiotic things have been suggested. They have to be idiotic because there is no evil in the first place, so whatever you suggest is going to be meaningless, irrelevant.

You need not torture yourself, because by torturing you cannot transform yourself. You need not stand on your head and do Yoga postures, distorting your body this way and that way. If you are preparing for a circus, that is another thing, but if all these Yoga practitioners reach heaven, then God must be surrounded by a continuous circus — all over paradise people are doing strange and distorting things.

Yoga cannot purify you. It may give you better health. I am in absolute support of Yoga as being part of gymnasiums, but not as part of temples. In the gymnasium it has a contribution to make. It can give you better health, longer life; it can prevent many possible diseases; it can cure many diseases that are already with you. But it cannot transform that which is not-good into good, because it cannot give you awareness.

Yoga does not believe in torturing the body, it is not a masochistic affair, but it believes in purifying it. And, sometimes, purifying it and torturing it may look alike. A distinction has to be made.

Low Blood Pressure or Hypotension 

"Blood pressure" is the force of blood pushing against the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps blood. If this pressure rises and stays high over time, it can damage the body in many ways.

Overview

"Blood pressure" is the force of blood pushing against the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps blood. If this pressure rises and stays high over time, it can damage the body in many ways.

Overview

About 1 in 3 adults in the United States has HBP. The condition itself usually has no signs or symptoms. You can have it for years without knowing it. During this time, though, HBP can damage your heart, blood vessels, kidneys, and other parts of your body.

Knowing your blood pressure numbers is important, even when you're feeling fine. If your blood pressure is normal, you can work with your health care team to keep it that way. If your blood pressure is too high, treatment may help prevent damage to your body's organs.

Yoga and Weight Reduction

Obesity is mainly due to four reasons.

  • ·        Metabolic Disorders,
  • ·        Excessive Calorie Intake,
  • ·        Tension And
  • ·        Hereditary

Yoga is a vast canvas and cannot be covered entirely in this small article (See Yoga Misunderstood So Far …). Here Yoga means only physical Aasans. Aasans involve only the physical postures and corresponding stretching exercises. It is such a wonderful series of activities that even a small portion of Yoga (i.e. the Aasans) are sufficient to control your obesity.

Skipping Meals Will Not Help Loose Your Weight

Let's get one thing clear…skipping a meal does not slow down your metabolism! A popular idea right now is that if you skip meals your body goes into "starvation mode". This is where the popular six meal per day diet plan got its start. This theory is based upon a misunderstanding of how diet affects your metabolism. 

Prolonged Fasting and Prolonged Low Calorie Diets is What Puts the Body Into Starvation Mode.
