These are the opinions from Kelly Bagnasco’s research. They are not necessarily my own opinions, nor are they medical facts by me. I am not a physician and do not claim to know the validity of this post.

Kelly Bagnasco is a great resource for many things; these include great recipes, handy DIY projects, and life hacks that tell about numerous uses for many things. She has given me permission to use any of her posts that I think would be useful for my readers. She has been a blogger that I have followed for years. I even have made a website just for many of her great tips and information about the various uses for things from foods to everyday items that most people have around the house. You will see many of her posts on this website. She is so concise that there is not much else I could say to enhance any of her posts.

 Glass of Water
HEART ATTACKS AND WATER!
How many folks do you know who say they don’t want to drink anything before going to bed because they’ll have to get up during the night. Something else I didn’t know … did you know that the reason you urinate at night is because gravity holds water in the lower part of your body when you are upright (legs swell). When you lie down and the lower body (legs and etc) seeks level with the kidneys, it is then that the kidneys remove the water because it is easier. This then ties in with the last statement!I knew you need your minimum water to help flush the toxins out of your body, but I didn’t know there was a time that was best! This is from A Cardiac Specialist!Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body
2 glasses of water after waking up – helps activate internal organs
1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal – helps digestion
1 glass of water before taking a bath – helps lower blood pressure
1 glass of water before going to bed – avoids stroke or heart attackI can also add to this… My Physician told me that water at bed time will also help prevent night time leg cramps. Your leg muscles are seeking hydration when they cramp and wake you up with a Charlie Horse.Mayo Clinic Aspirin Dr. Virend Somers, is a Cardiologist from the Mayo Clinic, who is lead author of the report in the July 29, 2008 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.Most heart attacks occur in the day, generally between 6 A.M. and noon. Having one during the night, when the heart should be most at rest, means that something unusual happened. Somers and his colleagues have been working for a decade to show that sleep apnea is to blame.
1. If you take an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a day, take it at night.
The reason: Aspirin has a 24-hour “half-life”; therefore, if most heart attacks happen in the wee hours of the morning, the Aspirin would be strongest in your system.
2. FYI, Aspirin lasts a really long time in your medicine chest, for years, (when it gets old, it smells like vinegar).

Please read on…

Something that we can do to help ourselves – nice to know. Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve instantly on the tongue.
They work much faster than the tablets.

Why keep Aspirin by your bedside? It’s about Heart Attacks. There are other symptoms of a heart attack, besides the pain on the left arm. One must also be aware of an intense pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating; however, these symptoms may also occur less frequently.

Note: There may be NO pain in the chest during a heart attack.
The majority of people (about 60%) who had a heart attack during their sleep did not wake up. However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from your deep sleep. If that happens, immediately dissolve two aspirins in your mouth and swallow them with a bit of water.

Afterwards: – Call 911. – Phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by.- Say “heart attack!” – Say that you have taken 2 Aspirins.
Take a seat on a chair or sofa near the front door, and wait for their arrival and …DO NOT LIE DOWN!

This information is very important information for those of us that have any kind of heart relayed issues. These include Congestive Heart Failure, any fibrillation problems or heart rhythm problems such as bradycardia or tachycardia, an enlarged heart, bypass surgery history, stints, and high blood pressure. I am sure there are others, but I am not familiar with them.

My plans, starting tonight, include drinking more water, especially before going to bed and when I wake up. Hopefully I will be able to drink more water at other times also. There are plans to cut down on carbonated drinks also, even though they are sugar free. If the cutting down goes smoothly, then I may cut them out almost completely, and switch to tea, juice, or milk.

Some things that we read impact us a little, some  enough to do them when you think about them and remember what they are, and others, like this article, that have a very big impact. At least so far as I am concerned. THAT’S WHY MY CHANGE IS GOING TO START TODAY, RIGHT NOW!!
