Think You’re Heart Healthy?

Michael Jackson is said to have died from Sudden Cardiac Arrest. Is that the same as a heart attack? No. Heart attack is caused by a blockage in the coronary artery. Sudden cardiac arrest occurs when the flow of blood to the heart and brains stops because the hearts suddenly stops beating. It may have nothing to do with heart disease.

Cardiac arrest can be caused by heart problems, but also by trauma to the head, drugs, respiratory failure due to drowning, choking or lung problems…or it can be triggered by your emotions.

What do emotions have to do with your heart? Everything. Research shows that mental or emotional stress put increased strain on the heart as well as on the immune and hormonal systems. One result is greater risk of fibrillation, i.e. irregular heart rhythms.

Negative emotions such as fear, anger, anxiety or frustration, on the other hand, throw your systems into disharmony. One result is fibrillation. Another is poor lung and heart function, which can shut down the flow of blood and oxygen to the heart and brain. The result? Sudden cardiac arrest.

One study (Kawachi et al.) found that highly anxious men were 6 times more likely to suffer sudden cardiac death than calmer men. The Mayo Clinic reported that emotional stress is the strongest predictor of cardiac arrest and heart attacks…more than all lifestyle factors! An international study (Rosenman) found that feeling helpless increased risk of cardiac death by 60%.

Here’s the message: Manage your stress and cultivate more love and appreciation, and your heart will be healthier, if you’re recovering from previous heart problems.

Can a Healthy 40 Year Old Woman Conceive? Conceiving at Any Age

Can a health 40 year old woman conceive? Sure! It happens all the time. It simply takes a little longer that if you were younger sometimes.

You were born with a certain number of eggs. Once you hit puberty, you begins to release a single age every month, during ovulation, which is about 14 days before your period. The younger you are, the more “fresh” your eggs are. Once you are older than 35, you may not be ovulating every month and your eggs have become a bit older, making it more difficult to conceive.

But that doesn’t mean that it’s impossible!

If you want to get pregnant in your 40s, you should start by having sex multiple times a week. That’s not so bad, is it? The average time that it takes a couple to conceive is about six months, so try not to be too disappointed if you don’t get pregnant the first month (easier said than done, I know).

The other thing that you can do is to monitor your cycle to tell when you are ovulating. You can do this by tracking your period. If you have a regular cycle–it’s the same number of days each month–you can assume that you’ll ovulate around 14 days before you should get your period. Your cervical mucus will be stickier around this time.

Ovulation predictor strips help you to make a better guess at when you’re ovulating. They measure the Leuteinizing Hormone (LH), which happens just before you’re going to ovulate. You put the strip in your urine and you can make a better guess as to when you’re ovulating.

Even knowing the exact moment that you ovulate doesn’t guarantee that you’ll get pregnant. A log of things have to all fall into place for it to happen–you need to release a good egg, the sperm needs to be strong, and so on.

Most women see fertility treatment as a last resort. If you’ve been trying to get pregnant for over a year, you may want to talk to your doctor.
