The peak time for a heart attack is between 6:00 A.M. and 12:00 noon.
Each year, more than a million people in the U.S. have a heart attack, and about half of them die. Of those who die, about half of them do so within 1 hour of the start of symptoms, and before reaching the hospital.
• It is usual that a heart attack is a problem where “plaque” has formed at the site of an injury to an arterial wall. An MI is typically due to a blood clot (thrombus) in one of the coronary arteries, which supply oxygen to the heart. The clot forms when the plaque ruptures, blocking the artery (thrombosis) and cutting off the oxygen supply to the heart. In fact, atherosclerotic plaque rupture with thrombosis is present in coronary arteries of 80-90% of fatal MIs.

• The life quality and longevity of an MI survivor is mainly determined by the amount of damage done to the heart muscle. If treatment is not started quickly, the affected area of heart muscle begins to die. If a person survives a heart attack, the injured area of the heart muscle is replaced by scar tissue, which weakens the pumping action of the heart and can lead to heart failure and other complications.
How to treat a heart attack
Treatment for a heart attack is the same as for ischaemic CVD:
Statins have little benefit, have harmful side-effects and don't extend life
Chronic low-level inflammation (CLII) involved in almost all health problems
"The medical kit of the future"
General electrotherapy health benefits. Used systemically and/or locally at specific problem areas of the body, its effective application has many benefits:
|Detoxification||Wellness / Healthy aging||Pain relief|
|Relief from insomnia||Immune system restoral||Anti-Inflammatory|
|Maximizes cellular energy production||Accelerated tissue /bone
|Muscle relaxation / rehabilitation||Increased blood oxygen
There are several reasonably affordable electrotherapy devices available for personal use. The following electrotherapies are those that have received a significant amount of positive feedback:
|Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy|
|Near Infrared (NIR) class 4 laser therapy|
Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) applies specific frequency patterns to the head area, with the following benefits:
|Balances neurotransmitters||Relieves pain||Treats depression|
|Substance abuse withdrawal||Relieves insomnia||Relieve stress / anxiety|
