Stress is very hard thing to avoid especially if you don't have a way to change the way you live. Most people are stress either about family or job situations. These factors alone with a poor diet can be deadly. The best way is to control what you can to the best of your ability.


a couple of years ago, i read a study about how music can relieve the some symptoms of migrane and the amino acid DL-Phenylalanine seems to help relieve the pain too.

Risk factors for a heart attack

* Smoking

* High cholesterol level
* High blood pressure
* Family history of heart attack
* Race--African Americans, Mexican Americans, Native Americans and native Hawaiians are at greater risk.
* Atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries)
* Lack of exercise
* Stress
* Obesity
* Sex (Gender)--More men have heart attacks, although heart disease is the leading cause of death for American women.

acute heart

Types of Heart Failure: Heart failure has two main forms: systolic dysfunction and diastolic dysfunction. Some people with heart failure have both types of dysfunction.

In systolic dysfunction, the heart contracts less forcefully and cannot pump out as much of the blood that is returned to it as it normally does. As a result, more blood remains in the lower chambers of the heart (ventricles). Blood then accumulates in the lungs, veins, or both.

In diastolic dysfunction, the heart is stiff and does not relax normally after contracting, which impairs its ability to fill with blood. The heart contracts normally, so it is able to pump a normal proportion of blood out of the ventricles. Sometimes the stiff heart compensates for its poor filling by pumping out an even higher proportion of the blood than it normally does. However, eventually, as in systolic dysfunction, the blood returning to the heart accumulates in the lungs or veins. Often, both forms of heart failure occur together.
