    Suffered a heart attack in October 2001, Cardiologist prescribed, Aspirin, Simvastatin, and Coreg, all of which I am still using. Had two CYPHER® Sirolimus-eluting Coronary Stents inserted in my LAD artery in June 2004. Go jogging and walking on mornings from 5:00 am 5 days a week (Mondays to Fridays 8 km a day)
  1. When can I get a coronavirus vaccine? Federal government officials are promising coronavirus vaccines soon -- some even before Christmas -- and states are gearing up to begin vaccinating Americans sometime in December. It almost sounds as if people will be lining up everywhere before New Year's to get a vaccine. But while millions of health care workers may be able to get immunized against the virus before the end of the year, the rest of the population is going to have to wait for months. Healthy adults under the age of 65 and children may well have to wait until late spri
  2. Confidence Drops in Prescription-Strength Fish Oil Does high-strength fish oil help the heart or doesn't it? Prior research into a prescription medicine derived from fish called Vascepa, announced earlier this year, suggested it might be of real value for heart patients. But the results from a trial of another such drug called Epanova, released Sunday, are disappointing: Researchers found no benefit from taking the medicine for a wide range of heart health outcomes, compared to taking a placebo pill containing only corn oil. "Many people continue to take fish oil supplement
  3. Walking: Your steps to health Exciting benefits of walking for heart health, including lower risk of heart attack and stroke Why should you start walking for heart health? Walking doesn't get the respect it deserves, either for its health benefits, its value for transportation, or its role in recreation. Aerobics, walking and health Ever since the 1970s, the aerobic doctrine has dominated the discussion of exercise and health. In a scientific update of your high school coach's slogan "no pain, no gain," the doctrine holds that the benefits of exercise depend on working hard eno
  4. As far as I know an echocardiogram is a test that uses ultrasound to show how your heart muscle and valves are working. I don’t think it can show blood flow etc. I had a nuclear test done many moons ago; apart from the contrast material injected into you and the scan it’s not unlike a normal stress test. There is a chemical stress test, where the patient receives medications that either speed up the heart rate or dilate the arteries. The body responds in a similar way it would to exercise. I don’t think that there is any reason to fear but your Cardiologist is the best one to
  5. For Maximum Safety, Be Sure to Wash Your Homemade Face Mask: Study The homemade cloth masks recommended for slowing the spread of COVID-19 seem to expel invisible cotton fibres into the air as people talk, cough or even breathe -- underscoring the importance of regularly washing them, researchers say. In experiments, researchers found that medical-grade masks -- surgical and N95 -- blocked most exhaled "particles" from the wearer's mouth. But the results with cloth masks, fashioned from T-shirt material, were surprising. People actually emitted more invisible particles while wea
  6. How Meditation Renews Your Body and Brain If you are looking to renew your vitality, reset your focus, and recharge your body, meditation is the tried and true path that will lead you to the fulfilment of these goals. Here’s how. For the vast majority of people, 2020 has been filled with unexpected challenges. Pandemic-induced health concerns, career turbulence, loss of routines, and future uncertainties have left many individuals with a generalized sense of unease. Fortunately, stepping into a space of renewal does not require a retreat centre stay nor an elaborately planned va
  7. How Safe Is it to Use A Public Bathroom? With dirty door handles, heavily trafficked toilet bowls, and proximity to strangers, public restrooms can be a germophobe’s worst nightmare. But the COVID-19 pandemic adds a new layer of risk, and infectious disease doctors are urging people to be cautious ahead of the holiday weekend. A recent study published in Physics of Fluids outlines the potential dangers of toilet plumes -- clouds of droplets that can rise 3 feet from a flushing toilet and be inhaled by an unsuspecting user. Aside from the obvious ick factor, simulations found that co
  8. Getting Your Protein From Plants a Recipe for Longevity Swapping out tofu for your morning eggs or using beans instead of ground beef in your chili could help you live longer, a new study report. Getting your daily protein from plants instead of animals appears to reduce your overall risk of early death, researchers found. Every 3% of a person's daily energy intake coming from plant protein instead of animal protein reduced a person's risk of premature death by 10%, the results showed. The results were particularly strong when people swapped plant protein for eggs (24% l
  9. COVID-19 May Spike Blood Sugar, Raising Death Risk Bodies stressed by severe COVID-19 could produce abnormally high blood sugar levels, even in people without diagnosed diabetes. And that appears tied to a doubling of the odds of dying from COVID-19, Chinese researchers report. High blood sugar (glucose) levels, measured at the time of admission to the hospital, were also linked to more severe disease and complications, according to researchers led by Dr. Yang Jin, of the Union Hospital and Tongji Medical College, in Wuhan, China. Wuhan was the originating epicentre of the global pan
  10. Forgiveness and the Power of Letting Go Learning to forgive doesn't always come easy, and it's a patient and tender process. Many times, forgiveness can feel more like a weakness than an act of courage and strength. Let's explore how elevating awareness around this powerful act can be a catalyst toward greater health—physically, mentally, and spiritually—while helping to transform your family, community, and country. Good health and nourishment aren't just about the vitamins and minerals you ingest; it's also who you are as a human being. What Is Forgiveness? In simple ter
  11. Coronavirus: Spanish study casts doubt on herd immunity feasibility A Spanish study has cast doubt on the feasibility of herd immunity as a way of tackling the coronavirus pandemic. The study of more than 60,000 people estimates that around just 5% of the Spanish population has developed antibodies, the medical journal the Lancet reported. Herd immunity is achieved when enough people become infected with a virus to stop its spread. Around 70% to 90% of a population needs to be immune to protect the uninfected. The prevalence of Covid-19 antibodies was below 3% in coast

  13. Face Shields May Be Next Step to Prevent COVID Face masks have become commonplace in the effort to combat COVID-19, but some doctors say it is time to take protection a step further and try full face shields as restrictions slowly begin to loosen. Face shields are nothing new in medical settings -- doctors and nurses who treat coronavirus patients are using them along with standard face masks. Health care professionals are split on whether they should also be worn by children, teachers, and in offices while states reopen. “Face shields appear to have a number of advantages: The

  15. Drug Combos May Be Advance Against Heart Failure Many patients with heart failure might live years longer if they were on a combination of newer medications, a study suggests. Researchers estimate that if certain heart failure patients were prescribed a four-pill regimen -- including three recently proven therapies -- they could live up to six years longer, compared with the regimen patients commonly use. The findings, published online recently in the medical journal The Lancet, are projections, not guarantees. But they do make a strong case for the medication cocktail, sa
