Rule Out Risk Of Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attack)

myocardial infarction

What is Myocardial Infarction?

Myocardial infarction is the medical name for a heart attack. It is a life-threatening condition that occurs when oxygen rich blood flow to the heart muscle abruptly stops. This is mostly due to blockage in one or more coronary arteries. This blockage is due to plaque, a substance mostly made of cholesterol, calcium and other cellular waste. When you open up the plaque you can see cells  called macrophages, the big eaters of our immune system.  These cells attach themselves to the damaged vessel wall, where they ingest the LDL.  When the plaque ruptures, you’re really in  trouble. It leads to the formation of a blood clot,  or thrombus, that blocks the blood flow in the artery. A heart attack in some cases may be fatal and result in death.

Symptoms of Myocardial Infarction

Tightness or squeezing sensation in the chest

Pain or aching sensation that comes and goes in the chest, back, jaw, and other areas of the upper body

Rapid heart rate

Sweating

Shortness of breath

Dizziness

Anxiety

Nausea and Vomiting

Chest pain is the most common symptom

What increases the risk of Myocardial Infarction

High blood pressure

High cholesterol levels

High triglyceride levels

High blood sugar levels

Stress

Lack of physical activity

Smoking

Obesity

Age

Family history

 

What to do in case someone is having a heart attack

Apan Vayu Mudra or Mritsanjeevani Mudra is a powerful mudra that acts immediately as a first aid for heart attacks. In this hand mudra the index finger is curled inwards touching the root of the thumb, the other fingers (thumb, ring and middle) are joined at the tips, while the little finger is stretched out.  Relief is experienced within 5 minutes after which one can go to the hospital while doing the mudra.

Test to rule out the risk of Myocardial Infarction

There is a simple exercise test you can do to see if you’re at risk for a heart attack.

First check your resting pulse rate on your wrist or neck (A).

Then do high intensity exercise for one minute and again check your pulse rate(B).

It will be increased.

Then relax for one minute and again check your pulse rate(C).

This is your recovery pulse rate. To calculate how fast your pulse rate comes down

B – C = D

This is the measure of how fast that pulse rate comes down after exercise. If it comes down less than 12 beats you are at risk for a heart attack or myocardial infarction. If your numbers are between 13 to 20 then you are at moderate risk. If the numbers are between 21 to 40 then you have minimum risk. If your recovery numbers between 50 to 60 then you are in top shape like athletes. This is one of the best indicators of for health and cardiovascular function.

The sympathetic nervous system raises your pulse rate when you exercise. As soon as you stop the parasympathetic nervous system kicks in to bring down your pulse rate by relaxation. This system also helps in repairs that the body does when we sleep.

Resting is a part of workouts that we ignore. Short workouts should be done with resting. That will make the system stronger.

Sona Moti The Wheat grain With Folic Acid

wheat grain

On 18 March 2019, Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Founder of The Art of Living launched ‘Sona Moti’ a natural wheat grain variety that is highly nutritional with 3 times more folic acid than any other grain. It has nearly 267% more minerals and 40% more protein than any other wheat variety.

The name was given by Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar after its almost round shape and golden hue.

Gurudev shared, “When I came to Punjab many years ago a local farmer showed me seed of local variety of wheat, which Sri Sri Institute of  Agricultural sciences got it tested in laboratory and found out that the Folic acid content is 12% higher than any other grain. Folic acid is important to for a healthy body. Many type of diseases like heart attack, blood pressure is caused by lack of folic acid. This wheat variety can solve many such issues and the grain that goes out of Punjab will spread health all around.”

This wheat grain variety has low glycemic index and less gluten which is very healthy for those consumers with life style diseases such as diabetes.

It was discovered that there was a variety of wheat grain that is 2,000 years old at least. This is an Emer wheat which belongs to the species triticum dai kokum and has been grown for centuries in India but in the recent past it has almost become extinct because of the rampant use of the hybrids.

This wonderful variety looks very different from the other wheat because it is round in shape almost like a pearl.

This is the only wheat which has folic acid. There is no wheat variety in the world which has folic acid. Scientists have been trying to put folic acid in wheat but never succeeded. The bread industry actually puts folic acid artificially or mixes multi grains in the bread.

Also more remarkable is its mineral content which is two hundred and forty one percent higher than the other wheat that is grown today. The protein and fat content are also 40% higher.

So we can conclude that growing this variety of wheat grain is the best way forward.

Eating Eggs Linked To High Cholesterol And Heart Disease In New Study

eating eggs

A new study has brought some bad news for egg lovers. Researchers from Northwestern University found that eating eggs leads to high cholesterol and greater risk of heart disease and death. It has to do with the cholesterol found in the yolk.

The researchers found that eating just three to four eggs per week was tied to a 6 percent higher risk of heart disease, and an 8 percent risk of dying from any cause.

Norina Allen, PHD, one of the authors of the study stated, ““The take-home message is really about cholesterol, which happens to be high in eggs and specifically yolks. As part of a healthy diet, people need to consume lower amounts of cholesterol. People who consume less cholesterol have a lower risk of heart disease.”

The researchers analyzed 30,000 U.S. adults over three decades. But this not something new. All foods from animal source contain cholesterol.

How much cholesterol does a single egg have?

One medium egg has around 186 mg of cholesterol. People with heart disease are advised to limit themselves to 200mg of cholesterol per day. So should they have to be vegan for the rest of the day.

This controversy over eating eggs has been going on for a long time. First they said eggs are a rich source of protein and hence should be eaten daily. Well, lots of other animals are not eating eggs and still getting their proteins. So then came another argument that eating eggs increases good cholesterol. This was a master-stroke and it was published all over the internet. But studies done by Lipid Research Laboratory observed that consumption of 2 eggs per day resulted in increase of plasma cholesterol concentration by 11% (p < 0.05) as a result of increased plasma low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels. The study concluded that eggs consumption, in addition to its hypercholesterolemic effect, increases plasma and LDL oxidizability, a phenomenon which was shown to enhance the progression of atherosclerosis.

The controversy still rages. But the best option is plant based diet and raw vegetables.

How To Maintain Good Mental Health

mental health

For several decades, now, researchers all over the world have asserted that our mental health affects the body. Negative thoughts and a negative attitude leads to us feeling low, our heads fall, our shoulders sag, and our breathing becomes shallow. In fact, it has been conclusively proved that negative moods trigger of a whole chain of physio-biological reactions, which are designed to make us feel this way. On the other hand, positive thoughts and positive attitudes make us feel good, our heads face up, we tend to look up, stand taller, breather deeper and fuller.

So, you see the body is directly affected by our mental health. But, consider this: Recent research reveals that our body also has the capability of affecting our mind. The way you carry yourself, the way you walk, the way you talk, and the way you project your physical self, to a fairly large extent, affects your attitude and mental health. If you are always standing tall, chest out, breathing deeply, chances are that you are projecting a positive outlook. On the other hand, if your shoulders are dropped, and you have couched back, you’re probably passing through a rather dull phase.

An interesting, and potentially very powerful cor orally of this is that we have control over our emotions through our bodily actions and postures. Hence, if we want to feel good or positive, all we have to do is change our body posture. Though it may vary slightly from person to person, the overall ingredients (of the key to a positive frame of mind) are more or less the same. Head high, shoulders back and broad, deep breathing, chest out, and of course the all important smile. As Anthony Robbins put it, “Motion creates Emotion.” The way we move changes the way we think, feel and behave. From the smallest movement of a facial muscle to a rigorous workout, all affect our emotions.

Even the simple action of smiling can make an enormous difference in your mental state. Extensive research in this area proves that the act of smiling sets off a biological reaction that has effects in all parts of our body. It stimulates the heart and the lungs. It increases the flow of blood and oxygen to the brain. The body’s excretory organs function more smoothly, clearing the body of harmful toxins. Imagine such a simple act having such far-reaching consequences. In fact, many doctors are of the opinion, that fifteen minutes of light laughter, on a daily basis, can increase your life-span by about 5-10 years!

The point is that nothing happens by chance. We’ve all been created in a very scientific manner. Every gesture, every movement in the body has some purpose. Some cause us to feel miserable, doubt our abilities, and curse our luck. Others cause us to feel good, optimistic and positive about life. We’ve got to choose the ones we desire.

Get rid of Anxiety fast

The Power of Questions

Another way of affecting your emotional state is by changing your focus. This can be achieved very easily through asking questions. In fact, this is something we all do, all the time. We are constantly asking questions to ourselves. However, it’s the type of question that makes the difference. You may constantly ask yourself questions like, “Why do I always get late?”, or “Why does it always happen to me?” or “How can I feel so horrible?”, and chances are that you will indeed feel horrible. The trouble with these questions is that they focus your mind and attention on what’s not good. We all have good and bad happening around us. But we can choose which among these do we pay attention to. If we pay attention to all our failures, all our embarrassments, we can’t help but feel down, rejected and disappointed. And this is what the above questions do.

On the other hand, concentrate on a question like, “What’s great about this?”, and your mind will immediately give you the answer. It will dig into all the details of the circumstance that faces you, and provide you with something that is truly great, something that can make you feel truly great.

Change your words change your life

Asking the right questions can also help you solve minor day-to-day problems. When faced with a problem or an irritation, instead of dwelling upon questions like, “Why is life so unfair?” or “Why don’t my plans ever work out?”, ask yourself the following questions:

1. What’s great about this problem?

2. What is not perfect yet?

3. What am I willing to do to make it the way I want it?

4. What am I no longer willing to do to make it the way I want it?

5. How can I enjoy the process while I do what is necessary to make it the

way I want it?

Use these questions and you’ll immediately change your outlook towards the problem you were facing. This also creates a positive habit which maintains our mental health.

Do You Have Depression or Are you Depressed?

depression

Many people suffer from depression nowadays. This is a state of the mind so medicines are really not the way forward.

If you have depression or know someone dealing with it then you have to ask this question.

Do You have depression or are you depressed? The question seems silly because both the statements mean the same. So then it is okay to assume that you have depression. Here you have to understand that at different points of time we have things. Also at different points of time we don’t have those things. People don’t have a car, then they have a car and then again they don’t have it. But you don’t become a car. It is just something you have or you don’t. Nothing is permanent. Similarly earlier you didn’t have depression, now you have depression, tomorrow you may not have depression. This is called a clear concept. You can’t become that thing. Well, write it down on a paper “I have depression.” Now notice how relaxed you feel.

Now we also became aware that you have depression now and earlier you didn’t have it. So then write down “I have depression for some time only.” Put your signature below it. So now we are clear that you have depression for some time only. So basically rest of the time you are okay. So then write down “ I have depression for some time only and rest of the time I am okay.” Again place your signature below it. So basically you are an okay person having depression some times. So write down “ I am an okay person having depression some times.” Again place your signature below it.

Now when you have depression what happens to your body, how it feels. So you may have drooped shoulders, sad face, eyes downwards, shallow breathing etc. Now change that and sit straight, look straight with a smile on your face and breathe slowly from your belly. Now notice how comfortable you feel.

Now close your eyes and remember a time when you were feeling happy, joyful. Feel that emotion, see the sights, hear the sounds. Visualize it in bright lights and vivid colors. When you are ready you can open your eyes feeling relaxed, comfortable.

Here you must understand that words are very powerful. When you say “I am” be very sure what you want to add after it. Whatever you say after that sincerely believing it to be so, the subconscious mind will make it a reality. Remember, your subconscious is very powerful.You start owning it. So say positive things after I am.

The Power Of Creative Visualization

Self concept is very important. We cannot make things our identity. The concept creates our belief system. This influences our thinking pattern. When we use positive words it impacts our self concept and our self image. The right communication will give us the results we want.

How Do You Stop Negative Thinking (Anxiety)

negative thinking

Stress, tension, worry, sleep deprivation, even allergies can lead to negative thinking. In many cases this develops into a negative mindset.

We all have negative thoughts and want to avoid them. Worries are born out of these thought patterns. This later develops into anxiety.  If anxiety is not overcome then it may lead to panic attacks and depression.So how do we stop negative thinking.

We lose our sleep or start having palpitations of the heart. These are the physical manifestations of our negative thinking. If this is not managed then it leads to panic attacks. Life seems to go out of control. So then we land into depression as we feel helpless. We started with having negative thoughts and see where we ended up. Due to the constant release of the stress hormone cortisol we are in confusion and unable to think straight. This is a vicious cycle.

We struggle with negative thinking because we have no idea where they are coming from. You get this question from people all the time. Here we have to understand that there is a positive intention of the mind behind this negative thinking. The mind is drawing your attention towards something to resolve it. The intention of the subconscious mind is to give you what you want and keep you away from threats. This negative thought is perceived as a threat. If you are getting negative thoughts about doing something new then the mind wants you to take necessary measures before doing it. If you take some satisfactory measures or go over the plan one more time the issue is resolved. Now this seems to be a good thing. So where does it go all wrong.

Everything that the mind perceives as a threat and produces negative thoughts related to it may not be the truth. It may be baseless. But the thoughts will not stop until they are resolved. So what can we do if that is the case. In your house you will have empty bottle, jar or maybe a box.. Label it as negative thoughts. Now you have a negative thought. You have no idea why it is coming. No problem, just write it down. Don’t miss anything out. Then put it in the jar. Then think of a positive thought. Another thought comes. You do the same thing. After a week open the jar and read all that you have written. You will find interestingly that most thoughts went away. This is because you have addressed the issue.

If you see a stranger in your neighbourhood that seems like a danger you will warn the people. That is the appropriate step. Similarly you have taken the appropriate step. When you try to stop these negative thoughts forcefully, the mind thinks it is failing to draw your attention to it. Then it really presses the accelerator. But once you have taken note of it and taken action the mind is satisfied. Slowly and steadily you will experience a decease in negative thinking.

The Power Of Creative Visualization

Here you have to differentiate between negative thoughts that bring attention to something that is really important and must be looked at or it is baseless.

If the problem arises in the mind then the solution is in the mind.
