6 Heart Health Myths and Facts: Is Your Heart in Danger?

6 Heart Health Myths and Facts: Is Your Heart in Danger? | Ayurveda - a health education. | Scoop.it
There are a lot of assumptions we make about our hearts. And for each myth, there is often some truth upon which it is founded.

Take heart attacks, for instance.

Most people imagine they would know when they are having a heart attack. It would be difficult not to recognize symptoms of "the big one" – sweating, soreness in the left arm, and sudden, disabling chest pain.

But that’s not always the case. Sometimes the signs are much more subtle or mimic other conditions.

"I have heard of instances when a cardiologist was having a heart attack and thought they were having indigestion," says Elizabeth Jackson, MD, assistant professor of cardiovascular medicine at the University of Michigan Health Systems.

As with any health issue, knowledge is power. And when your heart is on the line, you need all the power you can get.

So here are six major heart health myths and the reality behind them.

I am currently on an internship at the SDM Ayurveda College and Hospital in Hassan, India. Being able to spend time with the doctors and students of the hospital is invaluable experience for anyone who has learnt Ayurveda outside of India. In my case I completed a three years diploma in Ayurveda Medicine in New Zealand in 2007 but as Ayurveda is new two NZ there is no opportunity to go into practice in an hospital to gain further practical experience. Hence this opportunity to be able to spend time at an Ayurvedic Hospital in India, to be able to experience first hand Ayurveda is an opportunity not to be missed.

One of the recent highlights of the stay has been to experience the immunization program that the SDM Hospital of Ayurveda organises here on a monthly basis. The Ayurveda approach to immunization is not the same as we see in the modern pharmacological approach. In Ayurveda the approach to countering most illnesses is to build up a strong metabolism and immune system which will not allow the bacteria or poison into the system. In the case of the immunization performed here, this is done through the use of a small handful of herbs that have been specially process along with a hint of gold.

Over 5,500 children up to the age of 18 received the immunization after having gone through a very well organised system where the persons weight, head and chest circumferences are measured, along with height and any details of illness are recorded by the staff of the hospital before receiving four drops of the nectar of the gods.

It was intriguing spending time with the doctors and clients at each stage of the process, where we had babies one month old come in for their first vaccination to children who had been coming since the inception of the program 12 months ago, on a monthly basis.
