Talks About Water and Heart Attacks


“How many folks do you know who say they don’t want to drink anything before going to bed because they’ll have to get up during the night?!!

Heart Attack and Water – Drink 1 glass of water before going to bed avoids stroke or heart attack! I never knew all of this! Interesting…….


Something else I didn’t know … I asked my Doctor why people need to urinate so much at night time. Answer from my Cardiac Doctor –
Gravity holds water in the lower part of your body when you are upright (legs swell). When you lie down and the lower body (legs and etc) seeks level with the kidneys, it is then that the kidneys remove the water because it is easier.


I knew you need your minimum water to help flush the toxins out of your body, but this was news to me.


Correct time to drink water… Very Important. From A Cardiac Specialist!

Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its  effectiveness on the 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


I can also add to this.. My Physician told me that water at bed time 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.


Mayo Clinic on Aspirin


Dr. Virend Somers is a Cardiologist from the Mayo Clinic who is the lead author of the report in the July 29, 2008, issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.


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. Somers and his colleagues have been working for a decade to show that sleep apnea is to blame.

1. 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.

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

Something that we can do to help ourselves – nice to know.
Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve instantly on the tongue.
They work much faster than the tablets.

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.

The majority of people (about 60%) who had a heart attack during their sleep DID NOT WAKE UP!


However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from your deep sleep.
If that happens, immediately dissolve two aspirins in your mouth and swallow them with a bit of water.

Afterwards: – Call 911. – Phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by.
– Say “heart attack!” – Say that you have taken 2 Aspirins. – Take a seat on a chair or sofa near the front door,
and wait for their arrival and …..DO NOT LIE DOWN!


A Cardiologist has stated that if each person after receiving this e-mail, sends it to 10 people, probably one life could be saved!”

I am so glad you posted this Erica.

Something so simple, but yet ignored. Water! Actually, that is the only thing I drink besides coffee. But when I do drink coffee it takes two huge glasses of water to balance the dehydration coffee gives.

It’s a good thing I’m drinking a glass of water before I go to sleep. I didn’t know it was such a good prevention from heart attacks and strokes. I just get thirsty before I go to bed.

Goes to show…listen to your body!

I am going to try the water at bed time because I get leg cramps sometimes.

This is very interesting information. I had aspirin was considered the miracle drug, now it sounds like it might be.

@ Donna Merrill:

I drink mostly coffee, sometimes a half glass of juice, and definitely not enough water. This article changed my attitude immediately. Water can literally save us.

Dr. Erica,
thanks so much for sharing your wealth of information and especially of how important and vital is to drink enough water… I start drinking more water long time a go when I first read a small book “the Water Puzzle and the Hexagonal Key” it was geared to promote a water treatment machine (mostly) and I buy it right away because I understood the importance of drinking water and especially good water..

I truly thank you for your great article and research that went along and most of all… your love to support others as you do in all your great capacities..
