Did you know? General guidelines for effectiveness of water and aspirin!

This information came through an email chain sourcing the Mayo Clinic. I thought it was worthy of a post on my blog. Please contact your family physician for health guidelines relative to YOU!

WaterGlass-BlogDRINKING WATER…general guidelines for a daily routine

Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body. Minimum water suggestions to help flush the toxins out of your body:

  • 2 glasses of water after waking up – helps activate internal organs
  • 1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal – helps digestion
  • 1 glass of water before taking a bath – helps lower blood pressure
  • 1 glass of water before going to bed – avoids stroke or heart attack

Water at bedtime will also help prevent night time leg cramps. Your leg muscles are seeking hydration when they cramp and wake you up with a Charlie Horse.

ASPIRIN…pass it on

Most heart attacks occur in the day, generally between 6 A.M. and Noon. Having one during the night, when the heart should be most at rest, means that something unusual happened.

If you take an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a day, take it at night. The reason – aspirin has a 24-hour “half-life”; therefore, if most heart attacks happen in the wee hours of the morning, the aspirin would be strongest in your system.

Aspirin lasts a really long time in your medicine chest for years, (when it gets old, it smells like vinegar).

Why keep Aspirin by your bedside? It’s about Heart Attacks! There are other symptoms of a heart attack, besides the pain on the left arm. One must also be aware of an intense pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating; however, these symptoms may also occur less frequently. Note: There may be NO pain in the chest during a heart attack.
