Nimotop (Nimodipine)

A heart attack is a dramatic event. The emergency call, the ambulance, the intensive care unit all follow in rapid succession. But, surprisingly, these critical hours are the late stage of a disease which has developed slowly and silently over many decades, which may have its origin even in childhood.
In this long latent phase, heart attack may well be preventable. This is now the view of many doctors and medical research workers. Like most major epidemic diseases throughout history, it appears to have its roots in our way of life – diet, physical inactivity, our environment (including that devastating pollutant, the cigarette). And like the grave epidemics of the past – plague, cholera, typhus and tuberculosis – control depends chiefly on prevention. On present evidence our best chance of avoiding a heart attack is to deal with the causes lying within our day-to-day environment.
But who is to decide whether to undertake these measures? The preventive approach concerns you more than your doctor, for it involves changes in life style. This differs from the usual situation in medicine, where the doctor decides the best treatment of a disease which is already present. It is the individual who must choose whether to make changes in his way of life – changes in diet, in smoking and in exercise habits.
Prevention of heart attack is our main subject. But many illnesses are related to our way of life. So we refer not only to heart attack but also to stroke and high blood pressure, obesity and diabetes, inadequate circulation to the legs and chronic diseases of the lung.
The individual changes are small. For example, there are 168 hours in a week. We suggest that you spend one or two of those hours getting fit (on average, people spend twenty of them sitting in front of the television!). Another example: to eat less animal fat you don’t have to abandon your favourite recipes which contain cream. Often you can replace the cream by low-fat yoghurt; the result may be even more enjoyable.
So the changes of your way of life are small. The health advantages may be very great indeed.
