  1. Quite a considerable approach towards preventing self from heart attack. One should also keep an aspirin with him all the time if he is facing a problem of heart. This might really help to thwart the severity of the heart attack or the heart stroke. This might help you survive in severe cases. Such medication should be kept handy for those who are on the threat of having a heart attack. My personal experience led me to suggest you all. Aspirin can really help you reduce the severity , as it decreases the blood pressure, and the heart beat rate making the blood density to be decreased to some extent. And for those who needs to travel more and are not able to be in the constant touch with the doctors, they should be enrolled in any of the medical facility providing online and eConsultations by the physicians. This really helps a lot. Because, generally we do feel some symptoms of pre-heart attack, but we generally ignore it. And that is the point where one makes a big mistake. So, an immediate contact with a physician can help you recognize the indications, and help you to react to it immediately. I am enrolled in one such medical facility known as prevention plus program of Elite Health. You can find more information from their website:
