11 Signs You Are About To Have a Heart Attack

Heart disease is either the number 1 or number 2 killer of Americans. Heart attacks present themselves differently in each person and even between the sexes.

However, there are enough common symptoms that if you experience one or two of these symptoms suddenly, you may want to either call 911 or visit the ER.

Risks include age (over 65), sex (male), family history, race (African descent), smoking, obesity and diet, lack of exercise, high cholesterol, alcohol consumption, and stress.

You don’t have to have risk factors to have a heart attack, so be aware of symptoms!

The Best Foods For Cancer Patients

A diet that focuses on a variety of vegetables, fruits and whole grains can be beneficial to cancer patients because many of these foods are known to boost immune function while helping to detoxify the body. Freshly extracted juice blends that include carrots, broccoli, celery, parsley, oranges and lemons are also ideal due to the fact that they avoid the digestive process and instead deliver nutrients directly into the bloodstream.

Stevia Extract
Stevia is an herbal sweetener that is 100 times sweeter than table sugar, yet does not cause blood sugar levels to rise. Nobel prize winner Otto Warburg discovered that cancer cells no longer metabolize oxygen for their energy needs as healthy cells do, but instead they feed on the fermentation of glucose (sugar). For this reason, Stevia may be the ideal sugar substitute for those who are fighting cancer.

Broccoli is rich in anti-cancer minerals, calcium and sulfur. Calcium is important in fighting cancer because it counters acidity i…

Homemade Vitamin C Cream

Vitamin C cream provides remarkable anti-aging benefits to the skin. Vitamin C cream at a 10-percent concentration has been shown to protect against UV damage, stimulate the production of collagen and decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Many vitamin C creams and serums on the market today are prohibitively expensive due to the antioxidant's inherent instability. Making your own vitamin C cream costs significantly less than buying name-brand cosmetics. You can also make less at a time to reduce the amount of cream that must be discarded due to oxidation.
