  HOW TO SURVIVE HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE – Health Tip of Month   I hope everyone can send this on as it is really important for everyone to know!     Let’s say it’s 7:25pm and you’re going  home (alone of course) after an unusually hard day on the job.     You’re really tired, upset and frustrated.   3. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up in to your jaw. You are only about five km from the hospital nearest your home.   4. Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far. 5. You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself.     6. HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN  ALONE?

However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.

Polly Personified Her Tips on Life, Personality, Society and Personal Health

Polly Personified Her Tips on Life, Personality, Society and Personal Health THIS LIST was emailed to me in 2009 by good friend POLLY, who, sadly, passed away shortly after sending this. It certainly wasn’t from her lack of healthy living. She was one of the healthiest. These healthful tips are as valuable and timely today as ever as Polly continues to contribute to the betterment of society through these and other valuable words and goodwill she left us. Polly, though the humblest of people, happened to personify the below aspects, though she in no way sent them with that thought in mind. If anything, Polly was always striving to be the best she could be, never satisfied and always open to improving herself – though she was already one of the finest, kindest people one could ever know.  I was fortunate to call her friend for about 15 years and I will always treasure her memory and   all I learned from her as I go about my daily life, with her spirit always around.                                                                     Thanks Polly. Miss you much but you know that you are not forgotten and live on with such contributions and that positive spirit you left us that remains a part of me and others   Polly Personified Her Tips on Life, Personality, Society and Personal Health...
