[ Heart Attack ] Prevention: what are we missing?

Cardiologist Dr. Henry Solomon cited many examples in The Exercise Myth of published studies which clearly show that the majority of cardio vascular accidents where athletes die during or shortly after exercise, were caused by exertion stress. Dr. Amdrew Krahm of the University of British Columbia recently presented a study » at the 2012 Canadian Cardiovascular Congress that suggests sudden death in young athletes is not related to exercise and sports.

The reason given for this new conclusion is the fact that most young athletes die at home when they’re relaxing afterwards, only a few occur on the field while they’re actually playing. Assuming that the cardiovascular accidents in the new study happened after the athlete had fully recovered from exercise training or sports competition (for example it can take the kidneys hours if not days to clear acidity out of the blood and cellular fluid even without the accumulated effect of over-training syndrome) what exactly has changed over the last 25 years to instigate this shift?

If we suspend our skepticism that heart stressors resulting from exercise don’t trigger sudden death from heart attack (not likely since in general 99.9% of all warm-up cool down routines as a rule DO NOT address the disruption of neural, endocrine, circulatory and pH factors that occur during conditioning, adequately ever) then what else could it be? Remember the physiologic changes produced by cortisol combined with an acidified body pH during exercise can damage blood vessel walls much like nicotine as deep body temperature rises and oxygen levels drop. Lactic acid build-up eventually leads to acidosis and changes to the shape and function of protein cells, which is especially damaging to the myocardium. Many forms of cardiomyopathy can occur during exercise where the electrical rhythm of the heart is impacted, including ventricular fibrillation… unless we take the necessary precautionary measures »

Locally-sourced is your best bet.

We might also find a clue by taking a look at the other side of the lifestyle equation: diet. Given the best case scenerio where a teenager or young adult isn’t snacking on corn or potato chips, sugar, wheat, canola oil, and other GMO based junk food after the game, it’s still been very difficult to avoid the powerful neuro-toxins now widely prevalent on most fresh fruits and vegetables produced in North America. It takes a huge commitment on the part of parents and coaches to source uncontaminated food from local farmers. Find out if they use USDA approved fertilizers or fungicides, because if the symptoms are any indication they now contain ‘safe’ neuro-toxins and GMO derivatives. Plus it’s necessary to check if they protect their harvest from farm to plate during storage, handling and transport. If diet is indeed at least partially to blame, then this makes athlete sudden death a social problem as well as a sports training challenge. Without complete lifestyle solutions for diet and exercise that fit the body we can expect things to get worse before they get better as we raise our consciousness and return to magnificence.

[ Sports Exercise ] Heart Attack Risk

Okay, there’s an elephant in the room no one likes to talk about, and that is the physiologic changes that occur when the body becomes acidic during exercise and sports, and that the body can take hours if not days to recover even with the most rigorous warm-up cool down. This article » is but one example… Because most sudden deaths from cardiac arrest usually occur at home this study concludes that they are therefore not exercise-induced.

By the same token the majority of sudden deaths that occur during or shortly after sports training or competition are due to cardiac arrest. Even if the cardio vascular accident happens hours after exertion, there’s no dogging that exercise-induced stress plays a significant role. The basics can be found in any standard medical text. Metabolic acidity of the blood and cellular fluid not only changes the shape and function of protein cells, it also impacts the electrical activity of cells. When combined with the nicotine-like affect of adrenaline, it should be no surprise that hardening of the arteries and heart disease has been shown to exist in young athletes.

It’s tempting to turn a blind eye because you’re not the originator of a solution, or aren’t willing to take a serious look at the precise natural laws that must be followed because the answer doesn’t fit the status quo for prep and recovery. When we re-envisioned how fitness must evolve to mitigate the stress and strain of sports training and physical conditioning we had discard the old legacy thing in order to engineer an aerobic crossfit warm-up cool down workout which addresses the challenges of pH acidity with efficacy. No, you won’t find this one in any university curriculum, it’s ahead of the curve.

Like most people I used to think that regular exercise can condition and rejuvenate our heart so we don’t ‘”get old” before our time or risk heart attack. It’s true, almost any kind of exercise is better than nothing. As long as we warm-up and cool down for safer conditioning and faster recovery. It’s been shown that while most exercise reduces our cardiovascular risk by a factor or three, strenuous exercise like running, biking and most sports increase our risk by a factor of seven. This is why it’s especially important to restore body pH balance as well as muscle balance within minutes after a strenuous workout. As it turns out, not every warm-up cool down has this capability.

Without a fast way to neutralize body acidity produced by exercise, including most sports and sports-specific warm-up cool down routines, you can actually be increasing your risk of a cardiovascular accident. To prevent arteriosclerosis, high blood pressure, angina, fibrillation, hypertension, and heart disease in general, which can cause a heart attack or stroke during exercise, we need a quick reliable way to prevent and recover from acidosis due to electrolyte imbalance and ischemia (oxygen deprivation in the heart muscle) as a result of the circulatory imbalances that normally occur during exercise.

Just getting heart rate up and warming up the large long muscles of the body unfortunately won’t do it.  Most exercise and most exercise warm-ups do just the the opposite, i.e., acidify body chemistry.  Why focus on normalizing the drop in body pH produced during exercise and sports, as the goal? Because it requires, not only the restoration of  equal levels of oxygen in metabolically-active muscle tissue (V02max) and between small and large muscles, but in every organ of the body. The five neuro-endocrine plexus must be awakened in a specific order to balanced, otherwise it’s not possible to achieve homeostasis at Peak Metabolic Potential (PMP™) for fast recovery within minutes.

Exertional Heat Stress

What’s the big difference between winter and summer Olympic games, besides the weather I mean? Sports like running, rowing and biking, are more intensely endurance, while winter sports like ski jumping, snow-boarding and sledding are more technical. In the summer when the sun is high, Olympic athletes are at a higher risk of heat stroke, both because of the weather and because of the nature of their sport. Due to the necessary aerobic intensity of summer Olympic games, lowering the risk of heat stroke is particularly challenging. How can we help athletes ignite their spark plug without overheating their engines?

Left untreated, heat stroke may progress to coma. Death may result due to kidney failure, malfunction of the lungs, acute heart failure, or direct heat induced damage to the brain. This is a concern to athletes because heat stroke risk rises as body pH drops during exercise. Acidification of metabolic pH can lead to acidosis. Cellular response to stress is altered contributing to overtraining syndrome. Toxicity increases when the hypothalamus cannot regulate core temperature ultimately affecting the role of the pineal gland [the tiny cone shaped gland that has recently been found to be an important link between the nervous and endocrine systems.] This gland is linked to the CNS via the sympathetic nervous system. And is at particular risk when circulation shuts down in the deep tissues as it shifts to large long muscle.

Studies which have provided an in vitro model for the study of mechanism of injury in exertional heat stress when the body is unable to dissipate heat leading to heat stroke conclude: “Heat stroke mortality is worsened in the presence of acidosis. Using cell culture as an in vitro model of exertional heat stress, we have shown that physiologic acidosis (pH 6.8) significantly increases cell death from hyperthermia. We have further demonstrated that acidosis augments the heat response of the human HSP70 3′ untranslated region…”  Metabolic acidosis has been shown to inhibit the heat control mechanism in the hypothalamus, and is a potential causative factor in heat stroke. And drug-based corrective measures can’t restore intracellular and extracellular electrolyte balance.

Electrolytes are electrically charged ions that our cells need in order to carry electrical impulses to other cells that maintain muscle and nerve control. Since physical exertion generally causes a drop in body pH anyway, in the summer heat, the ‘imbalance’ of electrolytes can be as potentially damaging as the ‘loss’ of electrolytes since circulation shuts down in deep organs under stress. Hydration will restore the supply of electrolytes, however by itself cannot ensure the proper distribution of electrolytes required for optimal cellular function, unless we can open up circulation in the deep organs, including the pineal gland. Subsequently pH fitness is an even greater consideration as environmental temperatures rise when building protection against heat stroke into your training schedule.

Body’Fit pH Fitness™ exercise (short form… pHx™) is a routine that presents a solution for body temperature control during exercise, it warms up the body without over-heating it. Designed to spike metabolism in deep organs while equilibrating VO2max in all muscles, both large and small, this unique exercise sequence disperses heat by opening up blood vessels in tissues which normally shut down even under moderate exertion, giving an alkalizing rather an acidifying result. Combined with restoration of acid base equilibrium (within 7 to 14 minutes), the dynamic 24-exercise series helps reset temperature regulating mechanisms, very fast. In the hot weather pHx adds that definitive spark to ignite passion, while lowering the risk of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. It’s so short sweet and complete the short 7-min version can be done as a mindset revitalizer during competition. Are you staying ahead of the curve?

Cellular signals warm-up cool down

Electro magnetic energy in the body depends on the equitable distribution of electrolytes in all the tissues. This usually changes as soon as muscle starts to pull most of the blood out of the rest of the body during exercise. That’s why bulking up the muscles alone cannot protect the organism against deep organ disease or infection. View article on Metabolic Acidosis Enhances Proteolysis in Skeletal Muscle. Following a protocol that drives electrolytes into deep organs, the specific ratio of positive and negative ions inside and outside each of the trillions of cells which facilitates disease prevention is achieved. If this ratio stays proportionate even as metabolism rises during exercise we can achieve maximum capacity electrical activity in perfect homeostatic equilibrium.

What’s the natural outcome of cellular function at Peak Metabolic Potential™ (PMP) homeostatically with fast normalization of acid base equilibrium during physical training? Accelerated renewal, regeneration, and revitalization of organs, glands, and nerves – all the tissues of the body. For example, with the correct sequence of neural-endocrine stimulation, the period of rest and recovery necessary to allow for restoration of cellular signalling* (such as the mTor pathway, a central regulator of cell proliferation, angiogenesis, and cell metabolism essential for health), can be shortened significantly with better results. For more information see abstract on cellular mechanisms involved in CO(2) and acid signalling. A radical new solution to the age old challenge of health fitness starts by taking care of body pH during exercise. And everything else follows.

There’s a reason why Meta Living Design spent years identifying the parameters that make pHx™ results axiomatic. It’s not just another marketing ploy, it’s real. It’s based on the premise that by going with the most elemental physiological mechanisms, we can influence health fitness with greater impact and efficiency. Metabolic balance engineered at the deepest level of cellular chemistry at homeostatic Peak Metabolic Potential means less wastage of time and energy, and it gets more out of exercise.

*Cell signalling is part of a complex system of communication that governs basic cellular activities and coordinates cell actions. The ability of cells to perceive and correctly respond to their microenvironment is the basis of development, tissue repair, and immunity as well as normal tissue homeostasis. Errors in cellular information processing are responsible for degenerative disease such as cancer, autoimmunity, and diabetes.
