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.
Heart Attack and Water - I never knew all of this ! Interesting.......
Something else I didn't know ... I asked my Doctor why people need to urinate so
much at night time. Answer from my Cardiac Doctor - 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
I knew you need your minimum water to help flush the toxins out of your body,
but this was news to me. Correct time to drink water...
Very Important. 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 attack
I 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.

(when it gets old, it smells like vinegar).

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
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!
