Heart Attack

 

A heart attack occurs when the blood flow to a part of the heart is blocked, usually by a blood vessel block.


If this block cuts off the blood flow completely, the part of the heart muscle supplied by that artery begins to die.


The blood vessel block may be due to atherosclerotic plaque(cholesterol plaque), Thrombosis (blood clot) or spasm (shrinking of artery).

***Note: No need of any surgery in the early stages-permanent cure available.
Myocardial infarction (MI) or acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is the term for an event commonly known as a heart attack.


An MI occurs when blood stops flowing properly to a part of the heart, and the heart muscle is injured because it is not receiving enough oxygen.


Usually this is because one of the coronary arteries that supplies blood to the heart develops a blockage due to an unstable buildup of white blood cells or cholesterol and fat or both or spasm. The event is called "acute" if it is sudden and serious.


A person having an acute MI usually has sudden chest pain that is felt behind the breast bone and sometimes travels to the left arm or the left side of the neck. Additionally, the person may have shortness of breath, sweating, nausea, vomiting, abnormal heartbeats, and anxiety.


Women experience fewer of these symptoms than men, but usually have shortness of breath, weakness, a feeling of indigestion, and fatigue.


In many cases, in some estimates as high as 64%, the person does not have chest pain or other symptoms. These are called "silent" myocardial infarctions or silent heart attacks


Common Signs of a Heart Attack:

  1. Uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain in the center of your chest. It lasts more than a few minutes, or goes away and comes back.
  2. Pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach.
  3. Shortness of breath with or without chest discomfort.
  4. Other signs such as breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness.
  5. As with men, women’s most common heart attack symptom is chest pain or discomfort. But women are somewhat more likely than men to experience some of the other common symptoms, particularly shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting and back or jaw pain.

If you these signs in severe, don’t wait more than five minutes before calling for help.
Call 108 Get to a hospital right away.


PREVENTIVE OF HEART ATTACK  - HOW?
By observing the primary and secondary symptoms of heart attack, one can prevent heart attack by taking proper medication (preventive medicine) and also can cure permanently.


What are the early symptoms of heart attack?


Primary symptoms: Primary symptoms includes, disturbance in proper digestion, feels repeated stomach upset, nervousness, continuous tiredness, feels breath less
One can feel pins and needle pain in the Heart occasionally (at least once in a weak) that to only in the peak hour * some may feel head ache in peak hour for few minutes, at rest they can feel easy without any medication.  Persons who feel all the above symptoms may have the possibility to get secondary symptoms for heart attack within three years.


Secondary symptoms: Secondary symptoms can be categorized in to two
Two different major symptoms –  
1.) light chest pain and slight increase in blood preasure, some may feel dizziness/dullness/giddiness which shows presence of  initial symptoms for atherosclerotic plaque which can leads to  coronary artery disease (Heart attack) or may be presence of spasm in the coronary  artery.


Signs : before the onset of heart attack due to atherosclerotic plaque includes Uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain in the center of your chest.
It lasts more than a few minutes, or goes away and comes back, Pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach, Shortness of breath with or without chest discomfort, Other signs such as breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness.


Who are all the possibilities to get atherosclerotic plaque?
                                    Persons having the habit of smoking, alcohol, diet with more cholesterol,
Unhealthy food, severe liver & kidney damage. And diabetic persons with
Uncontrolled sugar level.


Who are all the possibilities to get spasm?
                                    Persons having the habit of smoking, alcohol, diet with unhealthy food,
And diabetic persons with uncontrolled sugar level.

2.) heavy pins and needle pain can be observed in the left chest region, esp. in the heart, with a frequency of  2 to 3 times in a week in the peak hour* only, full tiredness, nervousness,  uncontrolled emotions, unable to make proper decisions, these symptoms shows one can have heart attack due to thrombosis alone in future.


Most of people never used to note these symptoms and also the misunderstood as gas trouble – we can say such heart attack as silent heart attack.
Who are all the possibilities to get thrombosis?


                                    Persons having the habit of smoking, alcohol, severe liver & kidney
damage. And diabetic persons with uncontrolled sugar level.

Tertiary Symptoms:  
Mild heart attack
– For heart attack due to atherosclerotic plaque, on blood diagnosis may show increase in cholesterol level. Esp,. LDL, VLDL. And low in HDL. Or an angiogram test may reveal the condition.


– For (silent heart attack) heart attack due to thrombosis (blood clot), an angiogram test may reveal the condition, in case of silent heart attack symptoms (mild heart attack) cannot be observed easily other than pins and needle pain or head ache.

Final Symptoms:
 Finally it will not be call as symptoms – Risky Problem called Heart Attack, may be lethal (death) if unnoticed or if delayed for emergency treatment.


Severity: If heart attack is un noticed or treatment is insufficient the individual may have risk of heart apical tissue necrosis or ventral necrosis or DEATH


NOTE: *peak hour includes , a person working hard continuously more than an hour or more, quarreling in family problems/fight, uncontrolled official stress, continuous critical thinking, continuous laughing, continuous concentration and reading for several hours)


TREATMENTS
Our treatment system
Our treatment system involves, medication of herbal medicines for curing of heart blocks, prevention of re-occurrence of heart blocks and rejuvenation therapy.
Treatments are given according to the symptoms and levels of patients complications……


Treatments are in different levels:
Level: 1- Patients who are identified in the primary symptoms stage are easily cured within three months by providing basic set herbal medicines.


Level: 2- Patients who are identified in the secondary symptoms stage are initially treated for to reduce the coronary artery block (blood vessel block) separate system of herbal medicines were followed to reduce the atherosclerotic plaque and to dissolve the blood clot and spasm.


After curing of block, the patients are treated further to prevent the reoccurring of plaque or blood clot or spasm.


In case of spasm in coronary artery, it is a hard task to treat and also needs longer duration for complete cure.


Level – 3- Patients who are identified in the tertiary symptoms stage (mild heart attack) are initially treated for to reduce the blood pressure to reduce further complication in case  coronary artery block (blood vessel block) due to atherosclerotic plaque,


In case of thrombosis the patients’ are treated to reduce stress and emotional feelings to reduce complication, along with these treatments herbal medicines were given to reduce blood vessel blocks,
Separate system of herbal medicines were followed to reduce the atherosclerotic plaque and to dissolve the blood clot and spasm. After curing of block, the patients are treated further to prevent the reoccurring of plaque or blood clot or spasm permanently for about 10 to 20 years along with a good healthy diet system.


In case of spasm in coronary artery, it is a hard task to treat and also needs longer duration for complete cure.


Level-4- patients who returned from the emergency treatment after the heart attack scene, (MI or AMI)


These patients needs whole body rejuvenation therapy to cure and to prevent re-occurrence of heart attack.

MEDICAL TERMS AND EXPLANATIONS:-

  • Heart attack – Like the other muscles in your body, the muscle of your heart requires oxygen and nutrients to remain strong and healthy and to function as it should. When blood flow through the vessels that supply oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscles is cut off, either by a build-up of plaque or a blood clot, a “heart attack” occurs. Without oxygen, the heart muscle can be damaged or die. If the muscle is damaged, scar tissue may result, interfering with your heart’s ability to pump blood to the body. Read more about heart attack.
  • Angina/chest pain – A feeling of pain, pressure, or other discomfort that may be felt in the chest, arm, back, jaw, or neck if the heart is not receiving enough oxygen because arteries that carry blood to the heart are partially blocked due to a build-up of plaque (fatty deposits in between the layers of the wall of the artery) in the artery walls. Angina symptoms may also include indigestion, nausea, cold sweats, and anxiety. Angina can be stable or unstable. Stable angina is less severe and often occurs during exercise or other vigorous activities, when the heart muscles require more oxygen. Unstable angina, or a heart attack, does not go away when you rest and requires immediate medical attention. Any chest pain you experience should be checked by a doctor. Learn more about angina.
  • Adult Congenital Heart Disease- You may be one of the growing number of adults who was born with a heart defect. Today, because of improvements in early diagnosis during pregnancy, treatment in the early neonatal period, surgical techniques, and pre- and post-operative treatments, there are more adults than infants with congenital heart disease. According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, more than 1,000,000 adults in the United States have a heart defect.
  • Angina/Chest Pain - Chest pain, arm tingling, shortness of breath, being more tired and fatigued with usual activities - all may be signs that blood flow to your heart is becoming restricted or blocked. When you feel chest pain or discomfort, which your doctor may call angina or angina pectoris, it may be because the heart muscle is not receiving sufficient blood flow due to the build-up of fatty deposits in the arteries that supply the heart with oxygen-rich blood.
  • Children and Heart Disease - If your child is born with a heart defect or acquires a heart problem during childhood, you will no doubt have many questions. As you seek answers, on this website, from your doctor, and from other sources, keep in mind that new therapies and technologies sized especially for children continue to improve the outcomes for children born with a congenital heart defect or who acquire a heart condition as they are growing up. In fact, some 90 percent of children born with a heart defect survive to adulthood.
  • Congenital Heart Disease - Congenital heart disease refers to problems of the heart and major arteries that are present at birth. While heart defect is the most common birth defect, the chance of survival is high. Advances in interventional cardiology have played an important role in increased survival rates.
  • Coronary Artery Disease - Coronary artery disease, or CAD, is a build-up of fat and cholesterol in the arteries that supply blood to your heart. These deposits, which are called plaques, grow slowly over decades and can sometimes become hardened with fibrous tissue and calcium. As the plaques grow, in a disease process called atherosclerosis, portions of the artery become clogged and narrowed. If an artery is severely obstructed, it reduces blood flow to the heart and can cause chest pain or even a heart attack.
  • Heart Valve Problems - In a normally functioning heart, four valves regulate blood flow so that blood travels through the heart in one direction and at the right rate. When something goes wrong with one of these valves, the heart and rest of the body do not get proper amounts of oxygen and nutrients, and pressure can build up within the heart. A person with a faulty heart valve may experience fatigue, chest pain, shortness of breath, or other symptoms - or no symptoms at all.
  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy - Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a disease in which the muscle of the lower left chamber of the heart (the left ventricle) becomes abnormally thick and enlarged. HCM is a significant cause of both heart failure and sudden death. It is the most common cause of sudden cardiac death among athletes that are believed to be healthy.
