Paranoid with Widowmaker?Opt for herbal remedies!
We are living in an age where most of the population, especially youngsters, preach or strive for ‘live or let live’. Individuals demand independence to make all the choices but freedom like every other thing in the world comes with a price. The unregulated lifestyle choices sometimes manifest in the form of mismanagement of finances, instability, and failure of relationships. Indiscipline or no structure in life also results in life-threatening diseases including heart-related problems, depression, anxiety, and AIDS.
(1)On the occasion of World Health Day in 2002 which was celebrated worldwide on April 7, the World Health Organization (WHO) stated that a sedentary lifestyle could be very well among the 10 top leading causes of death in the world.
Some of the physical inactivity that WHO addressed in many cases and have gradually resulte in death includes lack of proper diet, regular consumption of tobacco or cigarettes, and lack of exercise.
The international organization stated that around 2 million deaths per year are due to physical inactivity. To motivate people to lead an active life, the WHO even chose physical activity in its theme for World Health Day, 2020 which was “Move For Health”. (1)
Still, after that, the sedentary lifestyle increased at a rapid pace. In this article, we will be addressing one such health situation which is a product of adopting an inactive lifestyle and considered as Widowmaker. The term usually grabs the attention of the general public due to the depressing connotation attached to it. Widowmaker is a type of heart attack that gets its name from the kind of effect it potentially has on the heart and life. It’s a condition that leads to a major blockage of the left anterior descending (LAD) artery. It is pertinent to mention that the left anterior descending (LAD) artery is the largest coronary artery. It is one of the three arteries that run on the front and supplies the blood to the heart’s surface or wall.
When the artery gets critically blocked right at the beginning of the vessel, it compromises the blood supply to the whole artery. In such cases, the blood flow needs to be restored immediately otherwise the results are usually catastrophic. Many times, patients don’t even make it to the hospital and in other cases the damage is irreversible.
Common Symptoms of Widowmaker
Like other types of heart attack, most of the time, there are no early symptoms of Widowmaker making it challenging to provide an immediate step for the restoration of blood supply in the arteries and even bringing the patient to the hospital on time.
However, there are some warning signs that call for immediate attention.
- Experiencing discomfort
- Experiencing chest pain
- Feeling nauseous
- Having difficulty in breathing
- Feeling pain in the abdominal area
- Feeling tension in the muscle
Usually, we take most of the symptoms mentioned above lightly as part of a seasonal ailment and ignore the problem but if you are someone who has a family history of heart problem, you should never take them lightly.
Although an individual with a genetic history of heart diseases or the ones leading a sedentary life are usually at the high risk of Widowmaker, one can still avoid such occurrence in their entire lifestyle by opting for healthy lifestyle choices.
