Heart failure can kill you. In this video you will discover the symptoms, when to see a doctor and how to prevent it!
Having car failure is bad, same thing with relationship failure, but heart failure is by far the worst.
Your body is made up of all these organs and cells that have different jobs and roles. Just like employees need cash to go to work these cells and organs need blood.
Blood doesn't have a mind of its own so it needs something to push it and that is the heart. With this condition the heart still works, but it's like an employee working on a late Friday afternoon. It just doesn't do that good of a job.
This is why some of the symptoms have to do with lack of energy or shortness of breath. Yes your mind also needs blood so if there is a little bit of failure with the heart can you guess what is going to happen? Yea, someone probably will have a harder time concentrating.
Also as the heart starts to slow down kidneys have a harder time doing their job and so fluid starts to build up in tissues. This could be swelling in the feet, angles, stomach area and some weight gain.
Next up a person could experience a faster heartbeat, it could be irregular and there could be some chest pains.
I know what you might be thinking and that is when should I see doctor. According to the American Heart Association if you feel severe weakness like you're about to faint then it could be serious and you should see a doctor.
Other potential serious signals could be a sudden severe shortness of breath and coughing up a pink fluid. Lastly would be chest pains and an unusual heartbeat. You probably should seek professional medical attention if you feel for a second that you have a serious health problem.
It's also true that taking an aspirin if you feel any of these symptoms could save your life. Aspirin helps stop inflammation and blood clots, which helps blood flow better.
If you're interested in preventing congestive heart failure it's best to look at what causes it. Mostly this is high blood pressure, diabetes, being overweight and blockage with arteries.
Making changes in your life such as not smoking tobacco, getting exercise, managing stress and eating healthier food can all reduce the odds of heart failure.
The next thing is drugs. Due to the fact heart disease is the number 1 killer just in the United States the amount of money being made through prescription drugs is huge. The bad news with the prescription medicine is that they can cost a lot of money, have side effects and create free radicals that cause damage.
The good news is that there are herbal remedies that can really help the heart that are safer, less expensive and don't give off free radicals and bad side effects.
One idea is policosanol. In a study at the University of Bonn in Germany researchers tested this herb with people that had high cholesterol levels that clog up arteries. Scientists gave 10 to 20 mg a day to these patients and the results were amazing. It lowered total cholesterol by around 19 percent and LDL cholesterol by 24%.
To get policosanol the best idea is through a supplement. The problem with supplements is that the industry is unregulated so it's easy for companies to make crappy products. In fact Consumer Labs a prestigious organization last year tested all the top brands and they discovered 40% of them had problems. This includes mislabeling and even some harmful ingredients.
