So it is only wise that everyone should be well equipped to handle this in case of emergency as every minute counts. Quick medical help could prevent many of these deaths. Fast action can also limit permanent damage to the body. In order to be well prepared, get to know the signs and symptoms of these health threats.
Signs and Symptoms
Interestingly, women often have different heart attack symptoms than men. For instance, instead of having chest pain during a heart attack, women may feel extremely exhausted and fatigued or have indigestion and nausea. Some may even experience anxiety up to a month or so before the heart attack. I would have suspect pregnancy symptom instead of a heart attack!
"Many women have a vague sense of gloom and doom, a sense of I just don't feel quite right and don't know why," says Dr. Patrice Desvigne-Nickens, an NIH expert in heart health.
Where as the symptoms of stroke are more recognisable. This includes sudden difficulty in seeing, speaking or walking, and feelings of weakness, numbness, dizziness, and confusion. "Some people get a severe headache that's immediate and strong, different from any kind that you've ever had," says Dr. Salina Waddy, an NIH stroke expert.
Heart attack and stroke are caused by interruptions to the normal flow of blood to the heart or brain - 2 organs that are essential to life. If the heart is starved for blood for too long (generally more than 20 minutes), heart muscle can be irreversibly damaged. Heart and brain cells begin to malfunction and die, setting off a series of harmful effects throughout the body, which ultimately lead to the familiar symptoms of a heart or brain emergency.
With stroke, the longer you wait, the more brain cells are dying, and the greater the chance for permanent damage or disability. That's why we see some people's face got distorted after a stroke attack and took ages to recover.
Ischemic stroke is by far the most common kind of stroke, accounting for about 88 percent of all strokes. In ischemic stroke, a clot blocks blood flow to part of the brain, killing neurons in its wake. But the worst damage often happens after the clot dissolves and surviving brain cells revive. The cells release reactive oxygen species, molecules that damage and kill cells.
A. Therapeutic Effects of Hydrogen
Other supporting papers on Hydrogen Therapy:
This article summarized findings of current preclinical studies that implemented hydrogen administration, either in the gas or liquid form, as treatment application for neurological disorders including traumatic brain injury (TBI), surgically induced brain injury (SBI), stroke, and neonatal hypoxic-ischemic brain insult (HI). Most reviewed studies demonstrated neuroprotective effects of hydrogen administration. Even though anti-oxidative potentials have been reported in several studies, further neuroprotective mechanisms of hydrogen therapy remain to be elucidated. Hydrogen may serve as an adjunct treatment for neurological disorders.
Hydrogen gas has been demonstrated to neutralize free radicals and reduce oxidative stress in heart and liver ischemia/reperfusion injuries (Fukuda et al., 2007; Hayashida et al., 2008). Hydrogen gas seemed selectively reduce hydroxyl radical and peroxynitrite in vitro and exerted antioxidant effect by decreasing 4-hydroxynonenal (4-HNE) (the specific marker for lipid peroxidation) and 8OHG (nucleic acid oxidation marker) in a rat MCAO model (Ohsawa et al., 2007). In this study, we examined whether hydrogen inhalation provided neuroprotective effects for acute hyperglycemia-induced hemorrhage after focal ischemia in rats.
iii. Hydrogen as a New Class of Radioprotective Agent
iv. Non-pharmaceutical therapies for stroke: Mechanisms and clinical implications
Emerging data support the hypothesis that hydrogen, which has the advantage of crossing the BBB easily, might act as a free radical scavenger of hydroxyl radicals, thus promoting neuroprotection. Hydrogen (2%) both reduced the amount of toxic hydroxyl radicals and significantly reduced infarct volume following transient MCAO in rats (Ohsawa et al., 2007). Studies using other rat models confirmed the effects of hydrogen on the improvement of neurological function (Cai et al., 2008; Chenet al., 2010; Matchett et al., 2009). A recent clinical study treated 13 cerebral ischemia patients with hydrogen inhalation and showed that 3–4% hydrogen inhalation over 30 mins was feasible and safe in stroke patients (Ono et al., 2012).
B. Healthy Food for the Heart
Carrots are high in carotenoids which are associated with a lower risk of heart disease. They have not only beta-carotene, but also alpha-carotene and lutein. The regular consumption of carrots also reduces cholesterol levels because the soluble fibres in carrots bind with bile acids and lowers cholesterol.
How Izumio and Super Lutein Come into the Picture
Why Super Lutein?
Super Lutein has the most balanced combination of carotenoids
How did Super Lutein come about?
- Lost 80% of functions
- Took Izumio
- In 35 days, recovered majority of his functions
- Today he takes both Super Lutein and Izumio

Well, I've also heard from a friend on how Izumio has saved her mom from a near stroke, TIA or Transient Ischemic Attack. Then, there's this dear friend of mine, whose mom got a stroke suddenly, but didn't get better even after discharged from the hospital. When I knew about it, I shared about Izumio to her, and she has been giving her mom a packet a day. Just 1 box, and she told me her mom has recovered. Of course she also took her mom for physio and some chinese massage, apart from a host of other things. To her, it doesn't matter which did the job, as long as her mom gets better. And I'm so glad today that her mom is back to her old self again, praise the Lord!
So, if you know of anyone suffering from Stroke or Heart Attack, do them a favour by sharing about these products with them. Who knows, you could save a life! Feel free to drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org or whatsapp me at 012-4212010 if you're interested to know more about these life-saving supplements. Till then, have a great weekend ahead!
