NURSE’S HEART ATTACK EXPERIENCE written by: “A nurse who was circulating her account of her experience via the internet to reach and educate as many women as she could.”
I am an ER nurse and this is the best description of this event that I have ever heard. Please read, pay attention, and send it on! FEMALE HEART ATTACKS I was aware that female heart attacks are different, but this is the best description I’ve ever had.Women and heart attacks (Myocardial infarction)… Did you know that women rarely have the same dramatic symptoms that men have when experiencing heart attack …. you know, the sudden stabbing pain in the chest, the cold sweat, grabbing the chest & dropping to the floor that we see in the movies. Here is the story of one woman’s experience with a heart attack. (more…)
Yes, because most of us associate a heart attack or heart disease with crushing chest pain. And yet, for women, the signs of heart disease can be so mild that we ignore them.
How about a nice cup of cocoa before bed? Well, if you’re a woman over 70, it’s just the thing to help prevent a heart attack. That’s right, there’s another good reason to have some chocolate every day, a new study found that (1) serving each day helped prevent heart attack. The good news is that you don’t need to eat a lot, a little goes a long way.
If you’re like me and have a chocolate monkey on your back and are hopelessly addicted to dark chocolate, this makes perfect sense. If you’re thinking that this is a little scary and sounds like someone who needs professional help, all I can say is that there’s evidence now that chocolate is not only a great anti-oxidant, it also helps keep your heart healthy.

A recent study from Italy showed that people who ate a moderate amount of dark chocolate had a significant reduction in a risk for heart disease. Does this mean that you should stop what you’re doing and move to Italy and eat dark chocolate? Yes!
Does this mean you should eat more dark chocolate? If you can limit yourself to 1 – 3 small pieces each week, not each day, then researchers found a decrease in CRP levels. CRP is C-Reactive Protein and high levels are associated with heart disease.
