Sudden Death From Heart Attack Can Often Be Prevented

Sept. 4, 2018; by Ben Taylor- Silver Bulletin e-News Magazine ( Besides unforeseen accidents, there is no greater cause of sudden death than heart attack. I received this life-saving tip from Nancy Field Carnley Ford (of Bronco, Texas, now living in Galveston, Texas) whose husband Mike just had a heart attack the past couple days. I’ve never heard of this, but the premise sounds logical. After reading Nancy’s heart attack antidote, also read the second one given to me by Dr Ken O’Neal (retired ER doctor and our company healthcare consultant) that may be used either alone or in conjunction with hers. Always keep in mind that sudden death from heart attack can often be prevented. Nancy wrote: “[This is] from my sister, a surgical nurse and certified CPR teacher: Please pause for 2 minutes and read this:

  1. Let’s say it’s 7.25pm and you’re going home (alone of course) after an unusually hard day on the job.
    2. You’re really tired, upset and frustrated.
    3. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up in to your jaw. You are only about five km from the hospital nearest your home.
    4. Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far.
    5. You have been trained in CPR, but the guy who taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself.
    6. HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE? Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.
    7. However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest. A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.
    8. Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital.
    9. Tell as many other people as possible about this. It could save their lives!!
    10. A cardiologist says, if everyone who gets this mail kindly sends it to 10 people, you can bet that we’ll save at least one life.
    11. Please… contribute by forwarding this mail which can save a person’s life.
    12. If this message comes around you… more than once… please don’t get irritated… You should instead, be happy that you have many friends who care about you & keeps reminding you how to deal with a Heart attack.” —-End of Nancy’s suggestion from her sister.

Dr Ken’s “emergency” method for heart attacks can be used along with the above “coughing” technique. If followed through with, this method below may actually provide a long-term “cure” for the root cause of the “attack”. One of the primary causes of heart attack is severe magnesium deficiency. The majority of people over the age of 30 (and even younger in athletes) suffer from this deficiency and it worsens with age unless corrected with diet or supplementation.

Calcium is the mineral that allows muscle tissue to contract. Magnesium is the mineral that allows muscle tissue to “relax”. With low magnesium levels, the heart can contract and as with a leg cramp, simply seize in mid-beat resulting in a sudden death heart attack. This may be the most common cause of sudden death among young athletes, especially football players who often experience extreme conditioning in high outdoor temperatures. Many programs simply give athletes Gator Aid and potassium or salt tablets. But this simply is not all the very active body requires; even more critical is Magnesium and of course Calcium.

This mineral deficiency is manifest in various ways, from occasional mild to severe leg cramps, sleeplessness, anxiety, Angina, and even depression. Well before a heart attack actually occurs, there is often some degree of Angina or mild chest pain. It’s often so mild most people wouldn’t even classify it as “pain”. If experiencing any such pain or “twinges”, do not ignore them; get on a magnesium supplement immediately! If that doesn’t promptly (within hours or a day or so at the most) get rid of the symptoms, seek professional attention.

If your symptoms are actually caused by a magnesium deficiency, as noted above, it’s usually easily corrected by diet and/or supplementation. But in the meantime, until you can get the underlying causes corrected, there is an immediate and temporary antidote. Keep some Membrane Complex with Magnesium AEP (Aminoethylphosphate- the most readily absorbed form) capsules or Magnesium Citrate powder on hand. At the first sign of any unusual chest pain or discomfort, open 3-4 capsules of Magnesium AEP  or 1/2-1 tsp of Magnesium Citrate powder and place either under the tongue. If there is time, you can stir either one into a small amount of water. That sudden sub-lingual in-rush of magnesium can avert a heart attack until you can get to a doctor for diagnosis.

Above all else, do not ignore any suspected symptoms of heart attack. Most are avoidable and simply should not occur if you keep in mind that sudden death from heart attack can often be prevented.
