Can You Starve For Oxygen Without Low Oxygen Levels?

Can You Starve For Oxygen Without Low Oxygen Level?

Does “Low Oxygen Level” information apply to YOU?

If your oxygen levels are not low, maybe you think you don’t need to worry.

How do you know if you have low oxygen levels?

If you go to an appointment with your doctor and you are tested with a blood oxygen level evaluation tool called an oximeter and your blood oxygen saturation levels appear to be fine, does that mean you don’t need to concern yourself with low oxygen level information?

Answer these question for yourself: Continue reading Can You Starve For Oxygen Without Low Oxygen Levels?

Did You Know That Stages of Dying From Heart Failure Can Happen Without You Even Noticing?

UPDATE  March 3, 2012

It’s important to realize that the seriousness of what you are dealing with urgently calls for you to take action.

Your chance to recover from debilitating illness largely depends on your awareness of exactly what it is that you need to do.

The harm caused by pharmaceutical drugs is another possible obstacle.

Since your disease process is very advanced by the time you receive a heart failure diagnosis you have good reason to be concerned.  So often though, I see that caregivers are also living with very concerning symptoms that are never addressed until they themselves are facing drastic circumstances!

Heart Failure Solutions offers real answers for Heart Failure and other forms of cardiovascular disease as well as any other disease  that might show up on your journey to wellness.

The tools are here for you to utilize.  Only you can receive this gift.  If your loved one can’t see the value in simple change you can’t want it FOR them.

This is NOT pie in the sky!  This is real hope and real solution.

Starting sooner than later is a really great idea, but even if you are already in dire straights, the information you’ll find here is about what you can do RIGHT NOW to help yourself.

What’s done is done.  Are you ready to step up for yourself?



If you are wondering about the stages of dying from heart failure, you or your loved one are probably late in the disease process.

By the time heart failure is diagnosed, you have already been suffering from heart disease for years.

If your doctor says your heart failure was caused from “a virus of unknown origin”, that information is not helpful.

Heart disease IS a disease of the circulating blood.

Bacteria and viruses may very well contribute to the growing disease in your circulating blood, but Continue reading Did You Know That Stages of Dying From Heart Failure Can Happen Without You Even Noticing?

Are You Waiting For a Heart Disease Symptom to Alarm You Into Action?

happy old woman showing thumb up

Are you worried about heart disease?

You’re in good company.  When you lose loved ones due to heart disease it tends to cause some worry, at least in the back of your mind.

Heart Disease is the number one killer in the world today but there is often no warning before sudden death shocks your family, leaving them to pick up the pieces of their lives without you.

Patti is one lady who has told me she has suffered a fate much worse than sudden death …

“You begin to experience uncomfortable symptoms such as chest pain.

Your doctor convinces you to look at your pain as a plumbing problem in your heart, and you allow him to cut you open to “fix” the problem.

Your surgeon and your primary physician do not make you understand that this is a temporary fix and you are back under the knife less than a decade later.”

I can see why Patti tells her story as “A fate worse than death”.

Cutting your chest open is hard on you, no doubt!  In fact major surgery is oxygen draining, therefore life draining.

Heart disease is also not a plumbing problem, so you will have lost much of your strength, and livelihood, along with plenty of your future potential.

  1. As far as your life time income is concerned, you are talking perhaps hundreds of thousands of dollars.
  2. The loss of Joy and happy memories can not be measured.
  3. The needless suffering is hard to fathom unless you have been there and done that, but on the second round of by-pass surgery you will know exactly what is coming.

Patti is actually one of the lucky ones.  She survived her ordeal with repeated heart surgery to enjoy some retirement years.  She is a proud lady, but she has obviously suffered a great deal of loss due to the consequences of treating heart disease without addressing the cause of heart disease.

As Patti puts it, she “learned her lesson and lived to see another sunset”.

Assuming you are not being rushed into emergency surgery for urgent acute care, do you have options for your heart disease symptom other than surgery?

How do you address the real cause of heart disease?

Certainly your doctor has spoke to you about diet and life style change.

You probably blew it off after he told you that your lab tests were all within normal limits.

When you experience a serious heart disease symptom will it alarm you into scheduling surgery, or seeking solutions?

Dr. Majid Ali, author of Oxygen and Aging, is a blood expert.  I’d wager that he has looked at blood as closely as anyone on the planet.  He is also a very wise and successful doctor.

Dr. Ali will teach you that your heart disease symptom is not a plumbing problem.  It’s a problem of your circulating blood and endo cells.  (The cells lining every blood vessel in your body.)

Acidity and increased free radical activity thicken your blood and clot up the proteins, starting in the plasma and then trapping the red cells in the sludge.  These micro clots stick to the endo cells everywhere in your body.

Dr. Ali teaches us that “Oxygen governs and regulates the activity of all clot busting systems of the body”.

It behooves you to Increase Your Oxygen … anyway you can … asap!

If you wait until your heart disease symptom has become urgent there may not be time to learn how to breathe more optimally and supplemental oxygen may no longer make any difference.

However, this urgent state is not caused by clogged plumbing.

The sludging action will eventually irritate your endo cells and then the muscles in your arteries causing vaso spasm.

Which will cause:

  • chest pain
  • heart rhythm problems
  • heart rate palpitations
  • skipped heart beat
  • atrial fibrillation
  • you ending up in a hospital

There is no replacement for Acute Care.  When you need it you need it.  So seek help immediately when you experience worrisome symptoms.

Heart Failure Solutions “Increase Your Oxygen” Is designed to guide you to healthier habits BEFORE you need to call 911!

As Dr. Ali always says, “Safety First”.

Though he also says your breathing can mean the difference between “a heart attack and no heart attack”!

Take action BEFORE you need urgent care!

Could Oxygen Be the Solution To Your Extreme Fatigue?

Do You Know Which Heart Disease Symptom Could Kill You?

Have you ever solved a HUGE problem with a really simple solution?

Didn’t you feel silly?

When that HUGE problem results in lost quality family time,

and even the loss of your quality of life …

it’s more than silly it’s tragic.

Let me tell you a story about an aging loved one who was effected by extreme fatigue that was much more serious than her family suspected!

(If this isn’t a concern in your life, skip to the bottom of the post and see how this might be effecting you even if you are young and active!)
[jbox width=”550″ color=”yellow” border=”10″]Yolanda just hated using oxygen.

She had been hospitalized many times but just couldn’t bring herself to use it on a consistent basis.

When I advised Yolanda that her oxygen levels were so low that they were life threatening, she would become very agitated with me.

“Be serious”, she’d say. “I can’t possibly drag that oxygen tank all over town with me!”

Each time I saw her it was the same story, and each time I saw her she had a recent hospitalization or trip to emergency to tell me about.

It was just ongoing. Yolanda had no quality of life, and neither did her family, because they spent so much time making emergency trips to the hospital.

When I saw Yolanda after a particularly lengthy hospitalization, she was looking defeated and depressed. She said if she had to spend her life at the end of a leash, she may as well just lie down and die.

I challenged her on that!

I got her up out of bed, switched her to portable oxygen and carried the tank to her garden. She was protesting, but I wasn’t having it.

It was a beautiful morning, and the cardinals were socializing, so we were in for a treat. The two of us sat there and lost track of time.

We chatted about her flowers and Yolanda told me hilarious stories about her grand-son. (Don’t worry Kai, your secret is safe with me.)

When Yolanda’s daughter showed up, I figured that was the best possible time to bring up the dreaded subject she had been avoiding all day.

“You know Yolanda, you might be able to enjoy more days like today with the people you care about if you just stop shoving your oxygen in the closet pretending you don’t need it.”

Yolanda was a long time smoker and had very low oxygen levels. I had been advising her that she needed to use supplemental oxygen to meet her oxygen needs, or she was going to lose her eye sight, her short-term memory, and her strength.

I just hadn’t been able to say that in front of her daughter. Her daughter was usually at work, and when I told Yolanda, I’m sure she forgot about it.

(After all, low oxygen levels DO cause short-term-memory loss!)

Of course, memory loss or no, Yolanda WANTED to forget about it, because she felt it was an unreasonable, inconvenience, AND it messed up her make-up!

I hugged Yolanda and apologized for telling on her before I left, but she looked too worn out to protest.

Yolanda did manage to stay out of the hospital for long stretches that following year, but living in denial had really taken its toll. Her heart muscle had been significantly weakened while she was starving herself of oxygen.

Her daughter, Kai’s mom, was happy to be able to care for her mother without turning her life upside down.

“I wish she would have taken better care of herself, but I’m really glad to know that there is a simple way to keep her out of the hospital more of the time”, she said.

Then she pointed at her mom, as a parent would a child and said, “you should be ashamed of yourself. If you can’t take care of yourself for you, could you at least do it for us?”

I have to give Yolanda credit. She really did take the message to heart, at long last, and make an effort to take better care of herself. Her daughter bought a pulse oximeter, so that there was no more arguing about whether or not Yolanda needed oxygen.

It made her nose run, so she was forever putting the prongs in her mouth, or pulling it down below her nose, but hey, she worked with it.

If Yolanda had taken the many years of simple advice, she could have saved herself a lot of suffering. Continue reading Could Oxygen Be the Solution To Your Extreme Fatigue?

Planning on Acute Heart Failure This Holiday?

Plan on acute heart failure?

Nobody wants to rush to the emergency room gasping for breath, and then spend a few days dining on hospital fare with your butt hanging out of the most unflattering attire imaginable.

“Ho ho ho?”

“I don’t think so!”

Yet, if you are shopping ‘til you drop, and then having chips and dips and drinks with desert (prescription medication too?), you are asking for a hospitalized holiday!

Lack of sleep, water and good wholesome food will catch up with you quick.

You waste SO much energy processing and eliminating stimulants, alcohol and junk food!

Plan on avoiding acute heart failure!
