If you’re lucky to survive a heart attack, consider it your wakeup call — an urgent message from inside your body.
Clean up your act… or soon enough, you’ll be pushing up daisies.
It’s time to get serious about your health — because while you might have pulled through this time, you might not be so lucky next time around.
But what if you never got the message?
New research shows that you could’ve ALREADY had a heart attack… even if you own doc says he thinks you have the heart of a stallion.
You just never noticed it when it happened.
A stunning 45 percent of all heart attacks are silent, meaning they strike without any obvious signs or symptoms. As far as you know, you’ve just got a sore shoulder, an achy muscle in the chest, or sudden fatigue.
But THAT’S the message… that’s your one and only chance to turn things around before it’s too late. Heck, sometimes you don’t even get that second chance, because even a first heart attack can kill you — and that includes the silent ones.
The study finds that while silent attacks are much more common in men, they’re far more deadly in women.
So either way, it’s time to stop making excuses and starting taking better care of yourself.
I’ve got a simple, safe, inexpensive, and incredibly easy way to put a bulletproof vest around your ticker.
First: Give up refined carbs, especially sugar. Your doc will obsess over your cholesterol levels, but it’s the sweet stuff that REALLY damages your insides and sets the stage for heart disease.
If you get 17 percent of your calories from added sugars, for example, your risk of death from the condition jumps by nearly 40 percent!
Second: If you haven’t exactly spent the years living clean (who has?) talk to an experienced naturopathic doc about chelation therapy.
This natural detox can break up the calcium deposits that gum up your arteries, and it can sweep that junk right out of your body.
As a result, according to a government-backed study published in 2012, chelation can slash the risk of serious heart problems by 18 percent overall… and by nearly 40 percent in diabetics.
And finally, there are warning signs, so know what to look for. Most “silent” heart attacks aren’t as invisible as the mainstream thinks — because you might experience sudden pain in your chest, arm, neck and/or upper back as well as jaw pain, flu-like symptoms, and fatigue.
No one — not even your doc — knows your body like you do. You know when it’s right and you know when it’s wrong… and if something’s off, even if you’re not quite sure what it is, get help ASAP.
The only way to know for sure whether or not it was a heart attack is by getting an EKG.
