How to SURVIVE a Heart Attack
My goal is for you to never have a heart attack.
And if you put my health tips into practice, you’ll be SLASHING your odds of ever having one.
But if you do end up being one of the 800,000 Americans who will suffer from a heart attack this year, I want to share something else with you that’s JUST as vital:
How to SURVIVE!
Believe it or not, most people having a heart attack don’t realize what’s happening. This is because most folks don’t know that heart attacks can cause a WIDE range of symptoms that DON’T include chest pain.
A recent study looked at data from 11,894 heart attack victims. About 10,600 had suffered a first-time heart attack, while another 1,100 or so had suffered a repeat event.
Surprisingly, only about HALF of the folks included in the study correctly recognized the symptoms of a heart attack.
Most people identified chest pain as a heart attack sign.
But less than a third knew that shortness of breath, cold sweats, and radiating pain were also indicators.
Only 7.5 percent knew that lightheadedness was a symptom, and a mere 1.3 percent knew that a stomachache could be a symptom.
Heart attacks don’t always look like they do on TV when people clutch their chest as they double over with severe chest pain—or grab their arms to indicate numbness or pain.
In fact, women often don’t experience any chest pain at all. They’re more likely to have symptoms like anxiousness or nausea.
These symptoms don’t scream “heart attack,” which leads many women to wait to seek medical care.
This delay can—and DOES—mean the difference between life and death.
Statistics show that men are more likely to go to a hospital with a heart attack… but women are more likely to DIE of one.
This study confirmed that people who quickly recognized their heart attack symptoms were more likely to receive treatment to open their arteries and restore blood flow within that critical two-hour window, leading to less invasive treatments and better survival rates.
It also showed that, in those who didn’t recognize symptoms, the in-hospital mortality rate was 6.7 percent, compared to just 1.5 percent in those who recognized symptoms and sought treatment within two hours.
The bottom line: Quickly recognizing the symptoms of a heart attack is VITAL to surviving it.
Here’s a quick recap of heart attack symptoms everyone should know:
- Chest pain
- Radiating pain or numbness to the arm
- Cold sweats
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, don’t wait. Seek treatment IMMEDIATELY!

You’ve likely given some thought to the size of your muscles over the years or your (growing) waistline. But have you ever considered the size of your brain? You SHOULD.
