If a person suffering from heart attack suddenly then what should we have to do at that instant that it would easily taken to hospital and what are the precautions at that time ?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
If you think someone is having a heart attack: have the person sit down, rest, and try to keep calm. Loosen any tight clothing. Ask if the person takes any chest pain medication for a known heart condition, such as nitroglycerin, and help them take it. If the pain does not go away promptly with rest or within 3 minutes of taking nitroglycerin, call for emergency medical help. If the person is unconscious and unresponsive, call 911 (or your local emergency number), then begin cpr. If an infant or child is unconscious and unresponsive, perform 1 minute of cpr, then call 911. Do not do not leave the person alone except to call for help, if necessary. Do not allow the person to deny the symptoms and convince you not to call for emergency help. Do not wait to see if the symptoms go away. Do not give the person anything by mouth unless a heart medication (such as nitroglycerin) has been prescribed.

I have got high blood pressure in last two months. How may I got relief from this. My age is 22 years.
Dear, To control & maintan BP normal these are best methods to follow:.• Do physical exercise like brisk walk for atleast 20-30 minutes. • Maintain your cholesterol level to normal & eat least amount of butter, cream or fatty things. • Eat less amount of pickle, salt and fast food as they contain high sodium levels. • Avoid drinking alcohol and smoking. • Take less amount of caffine containing coffee, tea or cold drinks because caffine causes increase BP. • Drink 8 to 10 glass of water daily • Take 6 to 8 hrs of sleep daily. Do not take too much stress. • Do long breathing pranayams (Anulom- Vilom, Bhramari) daily for 10 - 15 minutes. It will reduce your stress level in your body. • Eat healthy diet such as green leafy vegetables, fruits. • Take 5 ml of GULAB Jal added in a glass of water daily once a day.

Hye. Thanks for the query. Your nutrient needs are high as you are growing. If you try to follow some fad diet, you will end up becoming malnourished on the inside and your growth may get stunted. So, go the healthy way to weight loss. Fats get accumulated in certain areas. Once you lose overall weight, you will notice that chest fats will also reduce. There’s no overnight fix when it comes to healthy weight loss, but you can adjust your lifestyle to promote quick, natural weight loss for the benefit of your health and your appearance. Successful, long-term weight management needs to focus on more than the food you eat and the pounds you lose. It needs to focus on your overall health. Reshape your body and your lifestyle by adopting healthy habits and breaking unhealthy ones. Replace all processed foods in your diet with vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low-fat dairy, lean meats, eggs, legumes, nuts, seeds and seafood. Focus on the variety of whole, unprocessed foods you can eat instead of dwelling on the junk food you eliminated from your diet. Eat smaller portions and increase frequency of meals. Make time for breakfast every morning. Eating breakfast helps prevent overeating and is a habit of people who successfully lose weight. Pack to-go meals instead of eating convenience foods when you’re not home. Exercise for 30 to 60 minutes at least three times per week to build muscle and burn more calories. Pilates, strength training, aerobics, swimming, dancing and yoga or a sport like football are ideal choices. If you’re new to exercising, start with brisk walking and jogging. Adopt physically demanding hobbies like bicycling, hiking, jogging, power walking to promote faster weight loss. If you don’t have time for new hobbies, increase your physical activity with things like walking the dog, playing with the kids or jogging instead of driving to a nearby store or taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Don't hesitate to take a personalised diet consultation as it's a matter of your growth as well

Good to know about no blockages in heart vessels and normal endoscopy reports at age 42. Your blood sugar reports & BP should be in control too, so I presume. Our eating habits are faulty-accept it. Acid is produced within stomach to make food softer to digest and process is going on @ 24 hours whether we eat or fast-both are bad if done in excess. Drink either of these every 2 hours so that acid does not remain collected in stomach. It gets moving the healthy way without hurting the inner layer of stomach causing acidity and ulcers. 1) green tea or normal tea with ginger and saunf. 2) clear soups of any kind. 3) just plain warm water and avoid chilled cold drinks. 4) drink warm water with a bit of honey + lemon (cut down 20 calories elsewhere. 5) do eat normal food regularly but avoid excess of oils and spices ,which you must be taking care because of DM & prevention of heart disease. 5) it is not necessary to eat every vegetable/fruit. Avoid good foods but causing distention. 6) avoid non veg heavy foods if you eat. You can have boiled /scrambled eggs 7) stop Pantocid ,it has long term bad effects like kidney failure. Take saunf, heeng, jeera,ajwain, ginger and garlic and other kitchen masalas which soften the food. 8) digene type of antacids are safer as they are just chalk! 9) diluted toned milk/ chhachh are natural ant acids. 10) take these which work like cotton to absorb acid in stomach but do consider calories. These foods are healthy and nourishing too e g bananas, boiled potatoes but not fried, khichri or boiled rice and moong daal with curd, daal-roti-dahi, soft raw vegetables and fruits like guava, carrots ,radishes, salad leafy vegeies. Oats and other breakfast cereals. No juices but only fruits with lots of fiber. You can take enzyme syrups like unizyme/ aristozyme for better digestion. Good luck and do write back after a week.

Before meal 30 min. Yes, you should take your medicine before meal. 3) bishopweed seed+ cummin seed 2 2 spoon, whole seed after breakfast n each meal. 4) avoid day sleep strongly. Give follow up.

Too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease. What you eat has a direct impact on your cholesterol level. In fact, a diet rich in fiber and other cholesterol-lowering foods may help lower cholesterol as much as statin medication for some people. Working with a registered dietitian and doctor is the key to develop and maintain a successful health program to manage it. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.

You have to continue all of the above as suggested by your doctor. Cut down on extra salt which is present as a preservative in papads,namkeens,pickles, chutneys and other canned foods. Do not sprinkle salt on salads but do take seasonal fruits and vegetables , as much as you can digest ! Regarding generic medicines , I have no idea but through my experience I can suggest Ashok by Himalaya & to take fruits like pomegranate fresh or a concoction made with dry seeds boiled in water for sometime, drained and kept in fridge for a week, to be taken half a cup everyday.

Here are Causes,Symptoms,and Treatment of Chest Pain

3143 people found this helpful

Hi, I am 35 years, 65 Kg, height 5’6”, male from India. I am having sharp pain in chest slightly leftwards for last 10 years. Sometimes this pain is also felt simultaneously in left shoulder or left arm or left head. Duration of this pain is 1- 5 seconds, mostly while resting but its frequency and intensity is not certain. Sometimes it occurs while warming up or cooling down. Also noticed, that it is related to cold weather. Sometimes left part of head is numb and has pulsating pain. I do exercise, vegetarian except eggs, almost no dairy product, and no processed food. No tea coffee, no alcohol. Been smoker till 2008, quit. Had stomach acidity issue till 2012 but no more at all. There is no problem at all exercising in fact I feel great and energized doing it. None of my maternal or paternal relative have BP or cardiac issue except my younger brother who underwent dental’s procedure due to Aortic Dissection in march 2013, but he have a genetic condition called Marfan’s Syndrome, no other family member have this. I always thought it is muscular or gastro related, so it never bothered me until November 2015. Last November on two successive nights I woke up feeling my chest pounding hard. Checked my BP and Heart rate everything normal on both occasions, but was not able to sleep well those nights every time fall asleep it woke me up I can feel my heartbeat and whole body is shaking in rhythm with it but my heart rate was absolutely normal. On third day all this panicked me I checked my BP it was raised so went to physician, BP 150/90 he told me its anxiety or due to some food, gave medicines for BP, anxiety and antacids. It helped me sleep, symptoms are as it is but milder now. Next day went to see cardiologist, I was too worried, he checked my BP 170/100, and did ECG, Tropnin T and ECHO all normal. Gave medicines for BP, anxiety and five days later did TMT, also normal. My BP came normal next day of visiting cardiologist and never rose again. I also assumed it to be anxiety and stopped all medications, in 30-40 days everything was normal except that sharp occasional pinching which I was having for years but now more frequent. Summers of 2016 was ok not much issue. In july 2016 suddenly foul smell (like from dead bodies) started coming from my lower centre chest. This smell is totally different from my body odor and it continued after that till date. This November I felt some itching in centre chest on at least five different occasions while doing sudden exertion from rest like climbing a floor or getting up from chair or bed and rushing to open door. On night of 28-nov-2016, I felt sudden tightening in my left upper chest for 1 or 2 seconds, during sexual exertion, it felt like something had grabbed it tried to find the muscular nature by examining different chest and shoulder muscles but didn’t find anything wrong. Checked BP it was normal. On 1-dec consulted cardiologist, was nervous, BP 170/90, I denied testing this time but he said in the wake of new event we have to do all tests again. LIPID, HBAC, ECG, ECHO, Tropnin T, Na & K, TMT all normal. But this time ECG machine interpretation was “acute MI (inferior)” and Tropnin T level was 13.65 against normal value of 14. Does this is anything to worry about? What is that bad smell? As symptoms are intensifying year after year, what may be the cause? What further investigation can be recommended, if any? Cold weather increases it, why? Why pinching and heaviness is felt on left chest mostly while resting?

It is serious, if the ECG and Trop I value that you have mentioned is what it is. It means you have probably had a heart attack. Please take it seriously and go and consult a cardiologist for an angiography without any delay.
