"Until this book, a reliable resource for the patient was simply not available, as the subject is vast and complicated" John Rumberger, MD., Ph.D., FACC Director of Princeton Imaging Center

The medical profession is well aware that heart attacks do indeed increase in number during the holidays and winter seasons. One major study analyzing heart attacks among 138,602 people recorded a 35% higher number of heart attacks in December and January compared to August of a given year. We would all agree of course–no time of year is a good time for a heart attack! In the heart disease prevention and natural treatment book, HIDDEN CAUSES OF HEART ATTACK AND STROKE, Author/Researcher, Christian Wilde has identified many ways to help you or a family member avoid a heart attack this winter..
Tempers and the Holidays: One obvious reason for holiday heart attacks lies among unresolved resentments, sibling rivalries and a whole host of other emotionally charged situations including politics that often rear themselves when families get together. Tempers explode and blood pressures rise. When someone “loses it” statistics show a two and a third time increased risk of a heart attack within the immediate hours following the incident. Here are a few reasons why: Under high stress as one might experience during a bout of anger the coronary arteries constrict resulting in a subsequent “arterial spasm.” Fatty cholesterol deposits within the artery become welded together closing off the artery initiating a heart attack. When one is in a state of anger, blood becomes viscous and adrenaline and other toxins are released into the bloodstream. In the book how to detect and neutralize Hidden Causes of Heart Attack and Stroke: (inflammation, cardiology’s newest frontier) two case histories representing the endpoint of extreme anger are presented along with many other hidden risk factors and information on how to neutralize them.
Triglycerides: Another less obvious but contributing factor is the phenomena known as triglyceride spiking which can occur when triglycerides suddenly rise to dangerous levels. This heightened risk can happen after eating a single fat festive meal we might enjoy during Thanksgiving Christmas or New Years. This innocent event can literally provide a direct pathway to a heart attack within 2 to 26 hours following the single high fat meal. Triglycerides are the fats that circulate in the blood and those individuals (particularly diabetics) who are already fighting higher levels are at greater risk. The advice of the researcher is––those at particular risk may help minimize their risk by simply taking 800 mgs of Vitamin E in combination with 1000 mgs of vitamin C –– prior to consuming the rich holiday dinner. According to the study, this combination can dramatically control the “spiking.” More emphasis has in the past few years been increasingly directed at controlling triglyceride level. Dr. Michael Miller M.D., Ph.D., and team at the University of Maryland determined that any triglyceride level over 100 increased one’s heart attack risk three fold. These findings influenced the medical profession to change the nationally accepted guidelines for triglyceride levels. Studies performed at Penn State appearing in The Journal of Nutrition provide credible evidence that provides a protective shield to reduce the body`s negative reaction and raising of dangerous blood fats known as triglycerides. Turmeric and the other vitamins mentioned, taken before a high fat meal combine to lower the triglyceride and inflammatory response by as much as 30%, preventing a cascade of harmful metabolic events that lead to heart attacks and even diabetes.

Weekend Warriors: It isn’t difficult to get dad involved in a traditional game of touch football or hoops after a holiday dinner. Is this a good idea if your dad or you have not been regularly involved in physical conditioning and particularly in cold weather? A study involving 1800 participants sponsored by the Institutes of Health looking at the heart attack risk from physical exertion found a 5.9 times (600%) greater heart attack risk within one hour of an actual innocent exertion. You could extrapolate from this study that someone out of condition, pushing a stalled automobile out of traffic or having to shovel snow could unconsciously be putting him or herself at great risk. The good news is that heart disease is now considered to be 90% preventable. Let’s all apply a little common sense and favorably affect a fewer number of heart attacks this holiday season.
