Since witnessing both of these things with my wife last New Year’s Eve, I have been amazed that most folks don’t know the huge difference between the two. My wife had one followed by the other. People often use these terms interchangeably, but they are not synonyms. A heart attack is when blood flow to the heart is blocked, and sudden cardiac arrest is when the heart malfunctions and suddenly stops beating unexpectedly. A heart attack is a “circulation” problem and sudden cardiac arrest is an “electrical” problem.
Here’s a wonderful “facts” sheet that explains the details and more importantly, what to do in case you or a loved one is experiencing this extreme medical emergency.
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 attack
So, no more complaining about getting up to urinate at night. Do it! Drink a glass of water before bed every night.
