Strokes and heart attacks are sudden health conditions that can occur suddenly and require immediate medical attention. These result from lack of blood flow to critical body parts. When there is a blood clot (a blockage in blood flow) in the brain, one experiences a stroke, whereas a heart attack is caused when there is an obstruction of blood flow to the heart.
Stroke symptoms are the direct result of brain cells dying due to a lack of oxygen. One sign of stroke may include unexpected dizziness or loss of balance, making walking or other physical activities difficult. Another symptom can be weakness or numbness in limbs or face — often only on one side of the body. This is why a common step in checking for a stroke is smiling and checking if one side of the face is drooping. Other symptoms include severe headache, blurred vision in one or both eyes, and difficulty speaking or understanding communication. Learning to identify the signs of a stroke and seeking medical attention can spell the difference between life and death.
Unlike strokes, most heart attacks are caused by coronary artery disease, a condition that occurs when plaque builds up in the arteries. The plaque restricts blood flow over time, which forces the heart to work harder, and can lead to damaged or failed heart muscles. When the heart muscle doesn’t receive oxygen from blood flow, it begins to die. While heart attacks may occur suddenly, signs may build steadily over hours or even days. Common signs include chest pain or tightness, unexplained body pains, shortness of breath, weakness, dizziness, or fainting. Restarting the blood and oxygen flow through CPR and immediate medical attention is crucial to prevent any further damage to the heart.
However, prevention is key when it comes to fending off heart attack and stroke. Many of their risk factors are the same, brought about by chronic and short-term stress, smoking, obesity, physical inactivity, and an unhealthy diet. You can make intentional lifestyle choices and reduce health risks by minimizing stress, exercising regularly, avoiding smoking, and eating more healthy foods, and drinking Organique Acai Premium Blend daily– 30 minutes before breakfast.
