Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for December 29, 2006

I came across a web site yesterday that includes tools to track your health. So out of curiosity, I thought it was be interesting to track by blood pressure results taken around the time I was getting the acupuncture treatments. I entered in every reading starting March 8th to May 9th over my ten appointments. At the time, I knew it was slightly on the high side but I maybe didn’t pay close enough attention as I should have.

After entering the information, it produced a nice looking chart. My Systolic reading took an obvious downward trend after I started taking Niacin.

I’ve only taken one reading since I starting taking my daily routine of vitamins and it was at the suggestion of the chiropractor on June 10th, 2006. My reading was 122/87.

I never told the iridoligst about my high blood pressure readings and she was able to indentify that I had prevented a heart attack based on what she saw in my iris. She said there were healing lines around the area of the heart and that whatever I was doing was helping.

The interesting thing? By complete coinidence, I added five supplements that are well known to prevent heart attacks before I went to her. Niacin, Omega three, Vitamin E, B Complex and magnesium.

B Vitamins: Prevent Heart Attacks

A multivitamin each day can reduce your chance of a heart attack by 33 percent. Make sure that the multivitamin contains B6, B12 and Folic acid to decrease your homocysteine levels for a further risk decrease.

Eat a variety of fruit and vegetables to get all the nutrients required for good health. High fiber foods reduce your heart disease risk and hot tea’s flavonoids decrease heart attacks. Nuts contain monounsaturated fat, omega-3s, phytochemicals, magnesium and the antioxidant vitamin E, all of which decrease heart disease risk.

Vitamin E: Cuts the Risk of Heart Attack

By Steve Austin, ND

Healthnotes Newswire (October 12, 2000)—People taking vitamin E supplements have a dramatically reduced risk of suffering heart attacks, according to a report in the current issue of The Lancet.1

In this latest chapter in the on-again, off-again story of the effect of vitamin E on heart-disease prevention, Israeli researchers found that patients given vitamin E supplements suffered 70% fewer heart attacks than did those given placebo.

The researchers studied 196 patients with a history of heart disease and with kidney failure and dependency on kidney dialysis machines. Subjects were given either 800 IU (international units) of natural vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol) per day or placebo for an average of 519 days. Participants were chosen for the trial because the combination of kidney failure and a history of heart disease leads to an extraordinarily high risk of suffering a future heart attack. Also, such patients show evidence of unusually high oxidative damage—the very kind of damage vitamin E is likely to protect against.

Niacin: Treatment reduces risk of heart attack by 70 percent

Cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer in most industrialized countries. A new study indicates that combining the use of a statin drug and niacin can reduce the risk of heart attack or hospitalization for chest pain by 70 percent among people likely to suffer heart attacks and/or death from coronary heart disease.

The treatment used in the study combined two well-known ways of improving cardiac health: the use of a statin drug called simvastatin to lower levels of the so-called “bad” cholesterol, LDL, and the use of niacin, also called vitamin B-3, to boost levels of the “good” cholesterol, HDL. Niacin is the best agent known to raise blood levels of HDL, which helps remove cholesterol deposits from the artery walls.

Magnesium: The Heart Connection

Did you know that without sufficient magnesium you would actually die? Your heart will stop beating and the doctors will then call it a “heart attack” (#1 cause of death in America). Never do they say, “He dies from a Magnesium Deficiency.” This is how critical it is to have proper magnesium levels in the body. The early signs of such terminal extinction are racing heart-beats, or any unsual change in heart beats, angina pains, collapsing from echaustion after heavy physical exercise or work such as running a race, playing football or basket ball. Due to lack of magnesium the heart muscle develops a spasm or cramp and stops beating. this is because there is insufficient magnesium to relax the heart ready for the next contraction. Irregular heartbeats are also caused by magnesium deficiency. This may be the answer why so many young athletes are having heart attack for no known reason.

And still to this day, I can feel a difference if I miss taking any of these four vitamins.
